    Hi
    I have a new ebook and I would like to share it with as many people as possible. I might share it on kindle as well, but as I know they have a minimum price, it would be better to offer it for completely free. I was thinking of warez forums (ebook section),pastebin,some dock sharing sites or even torrents.

    What would be the best way to reach as many people as possible? Its a brand new ebook,10K words, full of useful information (and my affiliate links).
    thanks

    Amazon has a thing called kindle direct publishing where you can independently publish your book to reach the amazon/kindle audience. You can sell books for $0.00 if you chose to.
    Social media is another good idea. I would look into book/reading/niche-related authority sites and see how to promote on them there.

    Paid advertising is the best method to give value to your products.
    But there are more ways that comes handy, Amazon for $0 is definitely
    of no match being the biggest marketplace in world.

    Thanks for your reply. Please correct me if I am wrong, but as I see there is a minimum price on Kindle Self Publising, its 0.99$, but :
    "You can choose to offer any book enrolled in KDP Select free to readers for up to 5 days out of each 90-day KDP Select enrollment period. Because your eBook is available for free during a free book promotion, you will not receive royalties for it while the promotion runs"
    Is there any way around this and giving it away for free temporary?

    I'm not enrolled in KDP but I googled "sell ebook on amazon free permanently" and found postings on other forums talking about the bypassing the 5 day rule. Maybe someone here who is selling ebooks on amazon while chime in.
