Recovering Addict Launches Ebook Supersite
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Founder and owner of AssEtEbooks.com, Thomas Retterbush, is a recovering drug addict and diagnosed with clinical depression. He has dedicated his life to providing hope to those who have fallen. He believes if he can build, launch and operate a Supersite like his AssEtEbooks.com, anything is possible by anybody.
After a long, hard walk on the wild side, Tom has finally become a legal, honest, successful citizen, social media geek and entrepreneur, living on his own in SA, Texas. He has dedicated his life to proving, that reaching one’s hopes and dreams is possible no matter how far you have fallen or what rock you’ve crawled out from. If you read his whole long, crazy story on the first page of the AssEtEbooks.com website, you will realize that, he really had a hard climb!
Although he doesn’t have a secretary, salesmen, a webmaster or accountant, he spent day and night, seven days a week, for almost six months working on this Site. Not to mention the months and months of thought, preparation and planning he put into it before he ever even started. It is a Website, business and occupation he plans on continuing until the day he dies. It is his baby, his testimony and his legacy.
Tom will tell you, what most people would be too proud to admit. Few would list their shortcomings, faults and weaknesses for the whole world to see, but he is honest and upfront. Most people would be much to ashamed and humiliated to fess-up to all the stupid, selfish hurtful things they have done, but we all have skeletons in our closets. He believes he is no better or worse than anybody else, anywhere.
He confesses to all he has done not to be cute, but as evidence and inspiration for those still suffering. He believes his new life is proof positive that anyone can recover from chemical dependency, mental illness, legal disaster and financial ruin. He is living, breathing, walking, talking proof that anyone can pick themselves up after hitting rock bottom and leave their evil ways behind. He did it when nobody thought he could, least of all himself, so he knows anybody can do it, too. He has faith in everybody.
As long as he can remember, he has always been in search of knowledge and, as such, a book fanatic. It is in part because of his obsession with books that he decided to use this passion as a means to earn a living, and should he be blessed enough to turn a profit, to fund his real, ultimate goal of helping both addicts and vets (and addicted vets) in need. He doesn’t dream, much less want to become rich like Bill Gates (he would feel far too guilty), or expect to sell nearly as many books as Amazon.com or Barnes & Nobel; just to make an honest living.
He spends the better part of each and every day searching the far ends of the globe for good books. Still, he may not always be able to beat Amazon, B&N or Ebay prices. However, he guarantees delivery of THE best digital version of whatever book the customer is buying, available anywhere in the world.
He likes to spread the message, that not all digital books are equal; First of all, you have PDF, Text, MOBI, Kindle, etc. formats. But it goes much deeper than that, because of each version there are also degrees in quality. And he regularly turns down a poorly digitalized book. He will not purchase a substandard quality book just to save a buck. With him, the customer will ALWAYS get the very best digital book possible.
Tom actually wishes he could GIVE the books away for free, but he’s got to make a living somehow. So, he gives away as many as he can, but when he must, he charges a fair, competitive price with an unconventional, unconditional satisfaction guarantee: If the customer is not absolutely 100% thrilled with their book, or if delivery took longer than 24 hours, the customer gets to keep the book, but gets their money back. In other words, if the customer is not happy with his or her book, the book is FREE. How’s that for a guarantee?
So check out this new Digital Book Supersite at http://assetebooks.com to find some really good, free or reasonably priced books, while helping support a good man with a good heart and a great mission.
