    hi guys

    I am almost done my 30 page e-book (based in the diet niche - but with a twist)

    How do you find the people to give Feedback about your eBook without having them rip it off? or worst make it available for free! I dont want "testimonials" but i mean reviewed to find out if they like it, find issues, what to make better etc.

    I have worked hard on this, and want to make sure this is market ready.

    If you post it anywhere in the non Jr. VIP area, it will get indexed... so if you want to sell it later, I would advise against that.

    My suggestion would be to only provide it via PM to those that you would trust.

    Good luck with it.

    I would honestly just give it to friends and family to give some good reviews, or maybe anyone you know around the area to try the product for free and give you a testimonial afterwards. Once you have a good amount of feedback, more people will start getting intrigued and you will generate more leads.

    Try and make some connections in the niche (you could use these later on anyway!) and have some of these people review it.

    If you do decide to post it publicly somewhere then make sure you remove all references to the (actual) name of the book. Just replace it with some other name and you couldn't care less if people upload it to torrents and file sharing sites etc. as none of your potential customers will find it.

    The best practice is connecting with other authors and influential people in the niche and ask them if he/she can review your new book. Search for prominent bloggers/journalists/amazon publishers etc and contact them. People are pretty responsive for such review offers. And also these people understand business. So there is no chance to get ripped off or ending up at warez.
