Michael Booth, author of The Ebook Ebook, is a US-born expatriate journalist and online fine-art-printmaking publisher who has lived in a Spanish village in the foothills of Sierra Nevada for the past four decades. His interest in electronic publishing is recent, but he was bitten hard, and when he noticed that there was as yet no disinterested guide to ebook publishing resources, he decided to sit down and research and write The Ebook Ebook.
His other ebook-related sites are:
* The Ebook Crew (http://ebookcrew.ning.com), a real-time networking site for actual and aspiring ebook author/publishers.
* Ebook Latest (http://ebooklatest.wordpress.com), a blog site for keeping up to date on the latest developments in the world of ebooks.

A couple of weeks ago at a meeting of the California Writers Club in San Jose, one question came up more often than “Where can I find an editor?” and “Where can I find an agent?” It was, “How do I get an ebook published?”
Michael Booth’s The Ebook Ebook answers that question. The author has worked his way through piles of virtual information and misinformation about what ebooks are, what they aren’t, what they may become, and how to publish one now.
For writers whose eyes glaze over when confronted with jargon-filled articles about digital rights management, the format wars, marketing schemes, and the quickly changing royalties schedules of online publishers, thank Michael Booth for having scrutinized the options and summarized them in plain English.
I’ve written twenty books for various markets: children, young adults, educators and college students. My publishers include National Geographic, Scholastic, Lerner, Walker, Enslow, and Millbrook. But now my professional conscience tells me I should learn about self-published ebooks, as they are undoubtedly the wave of the future.
Now I know where to start. The Ebook Ebook makes the online-publishing learning curve more like a gentle uphill grade than the vertical face of Half Dome. It explains what a writer interested in internet publishing needs to know. Its author, Michael Booth, is objective; he’s not selling a self-publishing website.
If you want to understand how ebooks save time, money and trees – and how authors can benefit directly from this emerging technology – I heartily recommend The Ebook Ebook.
