I find the newbieclub to be a place to find tons of good information, especially for people who are "new" to computers and the internet. Perhaps you missed the links to the tutorials:

http://newbieclub.com/tutorials/index.shtml

http://newbieclub.com/master_menu.php - scroll past the first block of links, and there are bunches of more tutorials there.

If you are wondering why they aren't giving every e-book away for nothing, well, obviously you are still in the old mindset that internet companies can thrive by spending tons of money on websites, services, and products without charging a penny. It is ludicrous to think a "brick-and-mortar" company could do that, and it should be the same with an internet based one.

is anyone else a bit annoyed or felt slightly scammed about the supposably free ebook at the newbie club? I am trying to decide if newbie club is one of those scam places, I am getting a lot of red flags that it is. I am not going to post my name and address because I don't want hate mail if others disagree. at this point I am just going to check out what I find more carefully. I also did complain directly about how misleading the free make your own web page and autoresponder courses are. I am not against people making money but being sneaky and manipulative about it bugs me.

Hi
I tried several compilers. The one I like best is Active e-book from http://www.ebookapprentice.com

You can download a free copy to try out, which will create books using a max 10 files (including picture files) and a cover page that advertises the program, for an unlimited time. If you like it, the registered version is $30 on-line - no restrictions on number of files, cover page, etc. The help file is great, the tutorial takes you through it step by step, his web sites help with creation, marketing, etc - and there's a forum (down at the moment while they install a new forum software) for help. It also includes a project design utility so you can plan your book out. You don't have to create html files, unless you want to - it will process other files like word processor text, etc.

I think the Newbie Club have used it for some of their ebooks. Give the free version a try - if you don't like it, you don't have to register!
