Private Membership Section Coming Soon

I am kicking around the idea of starting up a paid members only section that will include fresh ebook templates, new backgrounds to use, tools, videos, tutorials, etc.

The ebook templates will come with Master Resale Rights and some of the other content, may or may not come with the same rights (or better rights). I haven’t decided just yet. But, I do know this….

All the content included will NOT be found anywhere else except inside the paid members only section. That is a definite!

So far, it’s breaking down to including the following:

  • Fresh Ebook Templates Added As They Are Created Each Month — No Exact Time Frame Set Except For Adding Monthly Templates
  • Pre-Built Website Template Set For Each Ebook Template That Matches The Ebook Design
  • Exclusive Backgrounds To Use Within Your Own Ebook Designs
  • Ecover Actionscripts That Can Be Added
  • Original Photoshop Brush Sets For Photoshop 7 and Up You Can Use Commercially Without Restrictions
  • Blank eCover Designs
  • Any Additional Tools To Help In Ebook Creation & Designing I Can Think Up or Get Hold Of
  • Video Tutorials For Easier Learning That Holds Your Hand
  • In Depth Written Tutorials For Using Certain Advanced Ebook Template Designs Found Within The Members Only Section

I have already set up the section and will be working on getting things finished up and decide what I’m going to put inside there.

The basis of the membership site is to provide more useful content for exclusive members only that are willing to pay for the content.

Anyhow, if you’d like to see the test site, you can check it out below:

Again, it’s gonna take me a few weeks to get everything situated and in place, but in the meantime, if you have any feedback, please do comment here so I can take all your suggestions into consideration before going officially “live” with the members only section :-)

Now that I’ve got your undivided attention…..

I recently saw Kung Fu Panda and it was a fantastically fun movie for the whole family. Which we all thoroughly enjoyed to the max!!

So, being inspired by the movie, I designed a new free ebook template with the “Kung Fu Panda” feel.

There’s actually 2 different colors right now — red and blue

But I will add a few more colors soon — like green and pink, etc.

The templates are the last 2 to be added, so they’re numbers #13 and #14

Go and download ‘em now!

They wreak of awesomeness….

I got mine yesterday.

And it was created by one of my favorite authors…..Max of www.maxcovers.com

Max has a great talent for making some of the best cover designs I’ve seen.

But he also has a terrific knack for knowing what types of products to release to the designing community that are beau coup profitable.

While his concepts of picking a profitable product may seem strangely simple, I think that’s what makes them work so well.

They are simple.

And that’s outstanding!

Sometimes with the never ending clutter of our world, especially online, we need simple solutions to our designing headaches. And Max certainly delivers on that.

Enough a** kissing already! Tell me about this ‘simple yet incredibly time saving’ product you speak of…

Okay, okay.

It’s called ‘Easy Striped Backgrounds‘ , and as I mentioned earlier it was created by Max of www.maxcovers.com.

The package consists of 100 web 2.0 styled backgrounds that will tile seamlessly no matter what size page you’re using.

The colors are nice, and there’s a good variety of them to select from to get the perfect match for your next project.

Now, why do I believe this particular product is a ‘time saver’?

Because instead of going over to www.stripegenerator.com and creating your own stripe-y backgrounds, you can just load up one from the package and be done with it.

It only takes a couple of seconds if you’re using an HTML editor like Dreamweaver. So why not cut down on your design time?

But, that’s not the only thing you’ll find inside here.

Normally, when you create your own web 2.0 seamlessly tiling background image, in order to use it with an image editor like Photoshop, you’d first need to convert the image over to a pattern to fill in an entire background of a project you were working on.

Max has taken care of that too.

He’s included a .pat file that you can simply load up inside of Photoshop and make use of all 100 of the backgrounds with just a couple of mouse clicks.

So, there’s yet another ‘time saver’ with this well rounded ‘designers friend‘ package.

Not only those 2 things, but Max also gives you a Master Resale Rights license to the whole thing so you can resell it to other ‘needy’ designers out there.

Here’s What’s Inside:

  • 100 .png Files For Every Web 2.0 Stripe-y Background
  • 1 .pat File For Use Inside of Photoshop Helping You Create Background Areas Within Your Designs
  • A Master Resale Rights License For The Whole Package
  • 1 Saleskit For Super Easy Reselling
  • And 1 .txt File of Simple Instructions on How to Use The Backgrounds

It’s a wonderful package that Max has priced low at just $17.

And I’m sure you’re curious to see examples of the backgrounds themselves, so you can check those out:

See Max’s Easy Striped Backgrounds Package Here

(be sure you order from the main index.htm page ONLY
or you'll pay the regular price!!)

And, if you decide you want to add Max’s newest package to your designing arsenal, you can do so and save $7 off the original price from the same link above ^^^^^^^.

I highly recommend this package for those looking to shave some time off their designing projects and still stay ‘up-to-snuff’ with the latest web 2.0 styles.

Way to go Max. And keep those packages comin’!

I, for one, can’t get enough of them ;-)

Ken Reno DIDN’T Make This!

So, I received an email that mistakenly gave Ken Reno credit for my latest EZ Ebook Template Package.

I’m writing this post to be sure that everyone knows I created every EZ Ebook Template Package without any help from any outside sources, beyond all the terrific tools I use that is.

That’s why I put in a “READMEFIRST” PDF file in every package. Not only to let you, as the buyer, know what you can and cannot do with the package, but also, to let you know who to contact in case you need further help using the package.

Ken, while a great guy, didn’t create any of the packages, but is a legal reseller.

There’s a big difference there boys and girls.

And, I’m positive, Ken had nothing to do with the slip up.

I’ve put in a support ticket to the company who sent out the message so they can make everything correct. So we’ll see how that goes. — *UPDATE*: Yes! The company sent me a personal email and told me they are making the corrections giving me credit.

To further clarify….

I purposely only offer Master Resale Rights to my packages for a good reason…..

So that I can finally get some recognition, whether good or bad, from the hard work I do. Period.

Sorry Ken, but I’m taking my credit back! :-D

All right, rant over.

New Cover Graphic For EZ EBT Pack #2

I thought I would share the newest software box graphic I finished designing last night and see what kind of feedback comes about the design.

Here’s the cover graphic:

New Cover For EZ Ebook Template Pack #2

I think it turned out pretty good.

What are your thoughts?

New Ooo Ebook Template Pack Coming

I’m working feverishly on a brand new Ooo Ebook Template Pack. So far, there are 10 different templates and I may be adding more.

Pretty soon, I’ll have a screen cap of a few of the new designs and upload them for you to take a peek at.
