I do not know anything about Scrivener or its web site.

Did you do a Google or Amazon search for "writer info", a book search, or some other one that might make you think you are a writer of some type of book or manual? If you did, you may have triggered a advertisement from Amazon.

When I look at my weather site, it displays advertisement based on my searches on Amazon, Google, and even [computer and electronics web store].

Of course, you could always use the "Private Window" option in Mozilla Firefox to reduce your web footprint and not give, the web sites you visit, your info that is stored in your bowser, such as email address and other things you do not want given out. Every browser I know of has personal information stored in it. The trick is to make your browser not have this info available to the sites you visit. Firefox has the "private window" option. [File > New Private Window].

Two days ago, I downloaded Scrivener. Yesterday, I clicked on the "hipiers" link suggested below.

Today, I receive an email from Amazon suggesting I buy the book, "Writers Tune-up Manual."

You may be right if the project goes to a professional publisher for final output. But, Pablo's original question stated he would be creating a "self published, free ebook." Pablo is apparently looking for a solution that *avoids* the need to present his book to a professional publisher.


The poster might want to look at this page.

In the list, there is information about some publishers and services,
with some references to e-book self publishing. IT might be worth a look.

If the poster wants to make money on a self-published e-book, then there
may be some good information there to guide through the process.
