After searching for what seemed like FOREVER to try and find some high quality, fresh — meaning 2009 or newer — ebooks that had at the very LEAST Master Resale Rights, I came up with SQUAT.

So, I decided, “If I can’t find it, then I’ll do this myself!”.

And that’s just what I did :)

Every week, I’m gonna give away a brand new ebook with at LEAST some type of Resale Rights to anyone who wants it.  The only exception to this is that if I find something that doesn’t have any resell rights, but has EXTREME value in the information provided. Then those will go up as well.

There’s absolutely. . . .

Free Stock Photos To Download And Use Now!

bigstockphoto_freephoto-red1Oh yes. It’s official. I am ecstatic to share this with you today. Big Stock Photo is giving away hundreds of royalty free, free images you can download right now.

I’ve looked ‘em over and they’re not too shabby. I’m sure you want the link, right? Who wouldn’t??! Okay, so Here Is The Link To Click To Go To The Big Stock Photo Free Image Library so you can snatch up your share. I set up the link so that it will open in an entirely new window for you so you never have to leave EZebt’s site. So convenient :)

No, there’s no obligation to download and use the images. At least that I know of anyway. And designers are always on the hunt for good, free, royalty free stock photos they can make use of either for themselves or for individual clients needs.

You have to understand that Big Stock Photo is one of the only royalty free stock photo sites that allows you to use their images inside website template designs. Of course, you can only use them one time inside one template, but you can always use their multi-purchase license thing and then you can create website, or ebook templates ;) , that include Master Resell Rights.

And when you’re ready to ‘graduate’ and actually purchase some images, Big Stock Photo has some really affordable pricing on their inventory. Smaller image sizes start at like $1 each. Not too bad. And they have tons of them to choose from too!

I would highly recommend Big Stock Photo to all designers. And not just because they’re giving away some choice freebies either. They’re gooooooood.

Relaxing Audios To Help Your Creativity

Did you know that when you are relaxed that you can actually be more creative?

It’s true!

Well, at least for me it is anyway. And I think that being worried or stressed out about one thing or another can drastically reduce your creative ability.

I know before a couple of days ago, I was totally stressed out. Couldn’t think straight. Couldn’t get anything done. Couldn’t come up with any new ideas for ebook templates.

But, then I came across this awesome audio collection of 12 nature sounds mp3′s and boy, what a lift it gave me!

Let me tell ya, I’ve lived in both Ohio, where it’s cold in the Winter and your stuck indoors without anything to do, and in sunny Florida, where you can go outside in shorts, play at the beach, and listen to the ocean waves just soaking up all the sunshine.

When I downloaded the audios, it took me from the Winter blue “ho-hums” and back to sun and fun at the beach. Even if all I had to do was close my eyes for a while. It was terrific. And after I listened to one of the hour long audios of ocean waves crashing against the shoreline, I felt completely reenergized and raring to go on my next project.

Which of course was the free tutorial I posted up earlier yesterday.

Not only that, but I even began working on a new free special report, checked a bunch of customer support emails, trolled a couple of blogs, got some laundry done, took a shower, washed the dishes, cooked, and enjoyed some tv with my hubby.

I got a lot done and didn’t even care that it was 20 degrees outside with snow blowing all over the place. I felt as good as I had when I lived in Florida, full of energy and creativity. Even if I couldn’t go outside in shorts :)

It’s amazing what our minds can do when given the right motivators. That’s why I firmly believe that having at least ONE nature sounds CD or mp3 can help if you’re feeling blue, have “cabin fever”, or just need a little mental boost.

Lucky me, I’ve got 12 of them.

And hey, if you’re like me, you not only LOVE the sounds of the ocean but the calming sounds of a thunderstorm ( I know, I’m crazy ), I’ve got that too with my new audio collection. Plus there’s even the crackling sounds of a cozy fireplace roaring, getting lost in the desert and listening to all the different animals, a relaxing waterfall, walking through the forest, and a bunch of others.

I highly recommend that if you’re feeling down, you should go check out the package that I got from the link below. Oh, and P.S. – it doesn’t even cost as much as a physical audio CD would. But you could turn it in to one if you wanted and take it with you when you’re away from your computer. In fact, you could even resell it as an audio CD. How cool is that?!

Anyway, here’s the link if you need a handy little collection of relaxers to get your creativity going:

12 Tranquil Nature Sounds Mp3 Audio Collection with Master Resale Rights

Free Resource: Pixels & Ice Cream??

Ah yes. Is there anything better than a nice big, FREE heaping bowl of your favorite ice cream? How about with pixels on the side? What???! “Pixels and Ice Cream“? Yep. That’s the name of a terrific website that offers free photoshop brushes and patters, some of which include wonderful seamless tiling backgrounds, that you can use both personally and commercially. Plus some other cool free stuff.

And that’s something I’m always on the hunt for.

While the site doesn’t have an over abundance of free-to-use resources, it does have some pretty good ones available for download. Many of those are more geared towards the “girly” end user. But, hey, I AM a girl, so I like it. And I’ve included it here for you as yet another terrific free graphical resource to add to yours.

I’m interested to see how this site grows over time. And what other fabulous freebies they come up with next!

Visit Pixels & Ice Cream Here to peruse through their “menu” of free goodies. You may just find something delectible to enhance your tasty designs there.

Cool Commercial Retro Resources

Since this site discusses designing ebook templates, and I like sharing my finds with others, here’s another list of really cool “Retro” style resources you can use commercially throughout your ebook and website designs.

  • MUJKA – This site has awesome patterns, cool templates, and rad retro vectors. The prices are decent and the designs are outstanding.
  • Art by Andy Nortnik – Can you say “Retro Overload”?! Amazing retro royalty-free clipart packs hand crafted by Andy Nortnik. Really cool sets can be found here for a really good price.
  • Free Retro Clipart Gallery – Yes, a whole collection of free retro clipart images. Not sure if these can be used commercially as I couldn’t find any terms of use, so you may want to use this resource for personal only designs. Or do a bit of further investigating. Oh, and try not to go blind with the site layout design….it’s horrid!
  • My Retro Clipart.com – A nice collection of royalty free retro style colored clipart images. Not bad, not bad.
  • Time Tunnel – Super cool collection of Royalty Free retro clipart collections. And, if you register on the site, which is free, you can also download a new retro clipart image every month. Not a bad deal for nothin’!
  • RetroClipper.com – Sells royalty free retro images at $1.00 each. Pretty neato collection. The site says all images are downloadable after payment and come on a plain white background. Obviously, the images are not colored but simple black and white.
  • NewAgeWholesale.com – Good assortment of vintage style clipart images. Most in black and white, but you can get like 400 images in a collection for $9.95. Not a bad deal. Categories of image collections include: Angels & Fairies, Goddess, Egyptian, Suns & Moons, Wiccan, Medieval, and more.
  • Simply Dark Free Clipart – Not really “retro”, but hey, skeletons are always in fashion ;-) Good collection of free to download clipart images. Some are animated, and some are not. Still, a nice resource to have in your pocket.
  • Civil War Clipart – Collection of civil war images found across the web, and some even scanned and uploaded from original 19th century newspapers. All images claim to be “copyright free”, and freely available for download and use in your own designs.
  • Designed To A T – Good collection of free to download and use on both personal and commercial projects clip art. Various categories to choose from, even Victorian! Not great, but good enough to make the cut.

Okay, that’s all I’ll add to this list. Hopefully, that will be enough to keep you busy until I can add more resource lists in later posts.

If not, you can always try doing some “digging” of your own through Google.

Happy Downloading!

Best Free Handwriting Fonts

I have seen anywhere I found quite by accident doing a search through Google.

See, what happened was….

I discovered this cool new online handwritten font tool at vLetter and planned on using that for making some handwritten signatures and headlines for some upcoming web pages, but found that vLetter converted the written text over to images on a flat white background.

And that just wouldn’t do for me.

I needed something better.

Something I could edit out the rear without having to remove the backgrounds.

So, I went on the hunt for some good, free handwriting fonts.

And I hit the jackpot with FontGarden.com

While the fonts are free to use for any personal pages, you can simply “donate whatever you think commercial use is worth to you”, and then you can also use these beautiful handwritten fonts commercially.

( I’m not sure if you have to donate for every single font you want to use commercially or not, but it would be nice to throw the author a few bucks for each one. Plus, you can always contact the owner and find out. )

Pretty cool, right?

I was amazed at the quality and variety of handwritten fonts. Frankly, I hadn’t seen anything like these anywhere else on the web. To boot, they were all free, right there for the taking, and installing!

Of course, when I found FontGarden.com’s selection, I just had to hop right on here and share it with everyone.

So, if you’ve been looking for some beautiful handwritten fonts, then I highly recommend you visit FontGarden.com and see what’s there.

It’s one resource you will want to bookmark and go back to again and again.
