Sqribble Ebook Creator REVIEWED!

In this review, I’m going to be taking a closer look at Sqribble — a brand new cloud-based tool that allows you to create eBooks, reports, whitepapers or other digital books on the fly, quickly and easily.

We’ll cover what it does, who it’s for, how much it costs, what the upsells are, and the pros and cons of this new tool, so you can make a more informed decision about purchasing it… and if it’s right for you.

What is Sqribble?

Sqribble is a cloud based eBook creator tool. It allows you to create professional looking eBooks, based on templates inside the tool, with a few clicks, saving you a huge amount of time and money.

Unlike other eBook creators, Sqribble immediately caught my attention because it has some really useful features I haven’t seen anywhere else.

Here’s a few features that really blew me away:

Automatic content — yep, you can actually use Sqribble to fill your book with expert content, so you don’t have to write a word. This is content from around the web, based on the URL you provide. You can pull content from any URL, paste it directly, extract from a Word doc or from their own library of niche articles. Total game changer.

This is a HUGE time saver and a major plus for anyone who hates writing or doesn’t have time to do it.

Gorgeous eCovers — a lot of eBook tools might save time, but they turn out terrible eCovers for your books. Sqribble is different here. The covers are seriously impressive. They wouldn’t look out of place on Kindle or Amazon, and they instantly look like you’re a professional who commands trust and authority.

Create Flipbooks — this is one of my favorite things about Sqribble. You can turn your “flat” books into interactive flipbooks. This makes your digital book look and feel much more like a real book — with pages that turn (animated like a real book page turning) and make the book look like something you can reach out and grab.

Why does this matter?

It’s about standing out and grabbing attention. Plus, it’s a way to engage your readers better. If they enjoy the experience of reading your book (“flipping” the pages) they’re more likely to get value from your content and keep reading until the end where your pitch or call to action is! Another thing about flip books is that you can embed them on your website with a simple piece of code that Sqribble provides once you publish your book. Awesome!

What else can Sqribble do?

Sqribble is versatile tool, with tons more features I found useful. For example, here’s what else Sqribble can do:

— Automatic table of contents

— Automatic headers and footers

— Automatic pagination

— Drag and drop design

— Add or delete pages

— Add your own media

— 300+ Google Fonts

— 50 eBook templates (covering 15 different niches)

— 10 different eBook themes (1 click changes color scheme of book)

— Import content from a URL

— Manually add content

And that’s just the stuff I saw inside the dashboard!

There’s tons of features packed into this tool, making it one of the best eBook creators I’ve seen, but there is one slight negative point which I’ll cover down below.

Who is it for?

Sqribble is most suited for freelancers, independent internet marketers, small marketing agencies and small business owners who want to create lead magnets, publish Kindle books, create and sell eBooks, or publish whitepapers.

If you’re also looking to create an additional income you’ll be pleased to know that also included is a commercial agency license to use Sqribble for client work, offering eBook creation services, with the ability to create unlimited eBooks which you can sell and keep all the profits!

They also give you a ready built agency website with pre-filled portfolio that you can upload to any domain for instant authority, so that you can show it off to any new potential clients to get work. (Professional websites like this would cost you at least $600 alone, so it’s really good value.)

Also included is an in-built “Client feedback tool” to collaborate with clients on eBook projects more easily (I love this feature).

What does it cost?

Normally $197, but the special launch price is a one-time $47.

Any upsells?

Yes, there are currently 4 upsells. You don’t really need all of them to use Sqribble, but they might come in useful depending on your situation and usage.

Here’s what they are:

Upsell 1 — Sqribble professional.

Unlock 150 more professional eBook templates (the best ones are in the professional version), graphics and even more ready—made content for all kinds of niches. (Just so you know, single templates from stock websites would cost you up to $450… for just ONE template!) Great for those that want more variety, content and heavy users.

Upsell 2 — Sqribble Prime.

Get 15 premium “limited edition” new eBook templates added to your Sqribble dashboard every month. This will increase your library over time, and make you stand out from other users. It works out to less than two bucks for a template! (Much cheaper than stock sites.) Great for moderate users.

Upsell 3 — Sqribble Fantasia 3D.

This includes 2-in-1 features.

1.) Unlocks a 3D cover creation tool inside your dashboard, allowing you to turn “flat” covers into lifelike, 3d covers. Great for getting more attention and making your books look and feel more “real.” People do judge a book by its cover, so something to keep in mind.

2.) Create “Flipbooks” that turn your eBooks into interactive and animated pages that turn like in real life. They can be linked to from anywhere online, as well as embedded on web pages with a single piece of code. This is really cool.

Upsell 4 — Auto Job Finder software.

If you’re going to be using Sqribble to create eBooks as a service to get paid, then Auto Job Finder is something that you need. It will automatically find you related jobs across various freelance websites and notify you so that you can fulfil them. A huge time saver and money earner.

The bad

— 3D cover is locked behind an upsell

The good

— Easy to use

— Glitch free

— Unlimited use (one-time payment)

The awesome

— Tons of beautiful templates

— Professional page layouts

— Automatic content (saves time)

— Flipbook creator (available through 3rd upsell)


There have been plenty of eBook creator tools in the past, but I haven’t seen any that make the entire process as smooth and quick as Sqribble. It’s surprisingly glitch free (most low-priced tools like this are buggy as hell) and it’s packed with some really cool features.

The templates are very nice looking, the layouts are professional and the fact you can automatically add content makes this a must have for anyone who’s tired of spending hours slaving over book design, writing content and screwing around with formatting.

The icing on the cake is the commercial license which is included. Normally vendors charge extra for this, so it’s a huge value added bonus. The additional provided done-for-you agency website is just over delivery.

Sqribble has been developed by Adeel Chowdhry, who is a well-known internet entrepreneur and best seller, with over ten years of experience and has previously created worldwide hits such as Pixel Studio FX which sold tens of thousands of units all around the world. He’s known for creating high quality professional solutions and I expect no less from Sqribble.

If you’re planning to create eBooks, reports or Kindle books in the near future, you owe it to yourself — and your sanity — to pick this up as it’s a tool that you’ll definitely need in your business.

What's Up B*tches!

It's been a long time since I graced this blog. Six years, to be exact. I won't bore you with what's been going on--I'll leave all that juicy gossip in the books I'm publishing in the next few months. 

If you've been following up on my other social media accounts you'll know life has been pretty good to me. 

I can't complain, I literally hit the jackpot, or as people say, "I lucked out". "Luck" because, let's be honest, life isn't always fair. Perhaps, I should add that I also co-created the life I now live.

Anyway, I hope life has been good to each and everyone of you as well.

If you're wondering why I'm blogging here all of a sudden, here's why:

I found out my blog is the first on google ranking when you search "forever young revolution". FYR practically dominates the first page of google and that's a big deal for me. Especially since I wasn't aware of it until lately.

Here's the dilemma, should I continue blogging here or create a new blog? I mean, I can do both...heck, why not?

How to Have the Best Day of Your Life--Everyday

"Today’s going to be the best day of my life."
  1. Speak UP!
When I wake up each morning, I say out loud “Today’s going to be the best day of my life.” Somehow it sets a positive mood in my mind and when I say it, I truly believe it, I try to connect with what I’m saying emotionally by visualizing a truly beautiful day.
I also do a lot of visualization during my meditation. I always thought meditation would bore me stiff until I started practicing it. You don’t have to be a Buddhist to meditate just like you don’t have to be religious to pray.
I meditate for five to ten minutes and what I basically do is speak out positive affirmations (don’t judge me if I’m not doing it right. It works for me and that’s all that matters) I basically say the things I want for myself, those things that are contagious enough to reach those around me. I have a long list but here a few I say to myself out loud:
  • I am kind
  • I am loving
  • I am loveable
  • I am trustworthy
  • I am compassionate and empathetic
  • I am a gift to everyone I come across
  • I am full of light: anger, bitterness, unforgiveness and self-pity have no place to reside within me
  • I am more than good enough, I deserve all the good things that come my way
  • I will never give up on my dreams no matter how long it takes. Time is just an illusion
  • I know I can find a solution to every problem I encounter. I won’t allow anyone steal my joy, my peace or my sanity.
  • I am in complete charge of how my life turns out, I am my own painter and my masterpiece is slowly revealing itself.
 2. Read UP!
 I follow several of my ‘positive thinking’ and ‘personal growth’ boards on Pinterest. On days when I am pressed for time all I do is scroll through and I tell you those little nuggets of positivity are just as fulfilling as reading a whole chapter of a great book.
Most of the people I’m connected to on LinkedIn share some great and uplifting quotes as well, I appreciate every last one of them.  And on most days the things I read are just what I need to remind me that all is well.
 Love listening to music? Find your favorite ‘happy’ song or songs and listen to while you’re going through your morning routine or during the day when you start to feel a dip in your energy level.
 Another thing I like to do is dance. It’s amazing how one intentional act can change your whole mood. By god, we all have to fight to be happy, so if you must burst into dance wherever you are to get your spirits back up, do it. Refuse to stay down for too long.
3. Act UP!
Do something good. Isn’t it lovely how it feels great to do something good for someone else?
  • Give someone your spot on the grocery line
  • Pay a compliment to the teller or the person next to you on the bus
  • Call someone and remind them how much they’re loved
  • Offer a smile, a hug, do something to put a smile on someone’s face and feel your heart burst with joy.
4. Eat UP!
It is no secret that what you put into your body directly affects the quality of your energy.
  • Eat regularly. Don’t miss meals
  • Eat more nutrient-dense foods like vegetables (organic is best when you can afford it)
  • Stay away from fatty and fried foods, highly processed foods and sugar
  • Don’t over eat
  • Drink plenty of water  
 5. Look UP! (Practice Gratitude)
Growing up, my mother always impressed upon us the importance of being content with what we have. We were not allowed to share clothes or borrow clothes from friends. She taught us not envy what others’ had. It was a beautiful lesson to learn from an early age.
 Most Christmases, we were just happy enough to spend it with family and friends. We knew that when mom had money she got us something, but when money was tight we offered acts of service to one another like, iron someone’s shirt, write someone a poem, polish someone else’s shoes or do someone’s chores. I will never forget how much more wonderful it was to do those little things for each other.
Most days we would cook and visit the less fortunate in our city and give them food and toiletries. We were not rich but whatever little we had, mother taught us to share with those who had none at all.
 Gratitude is the answer to all your treasures, the key to abundance in spirit. On days I start to complain, I remember these:
  • I am alive
  • I have eyes to see
  • I have ears to ear
  • I can walk and dance and sing
  • I have friends and family who care and love me
  • I have food to eat
  • A roof over my head
  • Light, clean water and clothes to cover my nakedness
  • I can count my blessings
 6. Give it UP! (Practice Forgiveness)
 We all know why it is important to forgive those who’ve wronged us. You don’t have to wait for someone to apologize before you forgive them. It is never easy but it’s worth it when you can forgive fast enough before it starts to poison your soul.  And once your soul is poisoned it will reach every other area in your life.
 But the BIGGEST unforgiveness we harbor is that for self. Most of us bear that heavy load upon our backs like some punishment or substitute for penance. How do you fly with such a burden weighing down on you? How do you soar when your feet are chained to the floor?
 Learn to forgive yourself of past mistakes. Remember that you will hurt someone and someone will hurt you, no one is immune to that. As long as you don’t go out of your way to deliberately destroy someone’s life, you can rest assured that life will happen against our best laid plans. Life is messy and human beings can be messier.
Say to yourself (out loud) I forgive myself. Next time I will do better because I know what not to do.”
 Forgiving yourself frees you from shame and guilt and self-pity, the three musketeers of stagnation.

 7. Sweat it Out
 Exercise is one of my favorite highs. It releases endorphins, you know, those feel-good hormones that makes you feel invincible.  I’m not going to elaborate on this point but I will gladly refer you to Mr. & Mrs. Google, they can direct you to tons of information about the benefits of exercise and so forth.
 8. Love: GOOD love
Nothing uplifts the spirits like talking or spending quality time with people you care about and who care about you too.
  • Pick up the phone and call a friend
  • Meet up for tea or coffee
  • Take a walk in the park
  • Watch your children play
  • Watch your partner smile
  • Plan a surprise get-away in the middle of your living room or bedroom
There is no medicine like good love, the kind that makes you feel safe and free.  And if you don’t have someone to spend time with, you have you. Spoil yourself, fall in love with yourself, after all, all other loving comes from the overflow of loving oneself.
 9. Do What You Enjoy Doing
What is it that you would do even if you were paid very little to do it?
 Yes, we all have bills to pay and most of us have jobs we don’t particularly enjoy doing but it’s a way to take care of our basic needs. Be grateful for that.
 But take time during the day and do that thing that burns inside of you. You know, the one for which they call you a ‘dreamer’.
 As a writer, I spend at least 15-20 minutes a day writing, even if it’s to write down my thoughts. When I’m not writing, I’m reading or doing some other thing I love and thoroughly enjoy doing. It is very important that I do this every day.
 If you can’t do the thing you’re passionate about, plan toward it. Just do one thing every day towards that goal.
 10. Assess Your Day
 Throughout the day take a few moments to assess your thoughts. Catch those negative thoughts before they take root. Watch your thoughts watch you. Be the observer. Your thoughts are like little missiles carrying within them life or death. Learn to see and stop those deadly negative thoughts before they invade your mind.
 You are your own armor and your own weapon.
 At the end of the day, do exactly what you did in the beginning, SPEAK UP! Speak your positive affirmations out loud, meditate/assess your day and visualize the next day.
 Take nothing negative with you to bed, only the positive things that happened during the day.
 Remember that the next day you will be reborn and you have a chance to do it all over, and differently, if you so choose. 
Say to yourself "I am thankful for this day. I did the best I could do. All is well.”

Bernice Angoh
No matter how hard you try
You can never steal my joy
Because I will fight, fight, fight to be happy
Between the lines and on my face you'll never know the height of my pain
Because I fight, fight, fight to be happy
Your negativity may dimple, poke and sometimes burst my bubble
But you'll never see me cry
Because I'll fight, fight, fight to be happy
I am joy radiated, love personified
Fool me, lie to me, and break me
But you’ll never destroy me
Because I’ll fight, fight, fight to be happy
And just so you know, I’ve had a lifetime worth of practice
Of fighting with all I’ve got TO BE HAPPY

Are you one of the many who've been procrastinating since the year began-- and now summer is barely 21 Days away? 
You can still slim down before June 21st and here's how:
-It makes you fuller faster.
-Increases your metabolic rate.
-Helps flush out toxins from your body ( I drink my water with a squeeze of lemon and cayenne pepper first thing in the morning).

- Fruits and vegetable juices are great for breakfast, takes very little time to digest but keeps you energized and satiated.

-Use dried fruits, dates, organic maple syrup, honey, stevia or agave to sweeten.
-If you crave salt, use dulse flakes, braggs amino acids, or dried celery flakes. You can also eat strawberries or mangoes, they have enough sodium to soothe your cravings.
-Himalayan salt is the best quality salt I know and use. Unlike regular table salt whose minerals have been bleached out, Himalayan salt still has all its elements.

4. AVOID DAIRY PRODUCTS (if you must then buy organic but you can do without it, at least for the next 21 days)
-Collard greens, broccoli, almonds are all great sources of calcium
-Have big salads with your meals
5. AVOID ALL 'WHITE' FOODS and products that contain them
- White sugar, rice, breads etc
-Substitute that side of potato or rice with some steamed or raw vegetables instead
-Some zucchini pasta or kelp noodles can replace spaghetti

-Teas or water is fine (trust me you'll feel less lethargic when you wake up in the morning)

-One of the quickest and safest ways to lose weight is to eat more raw foods.
-You could do raw until dinner and then have some cooked food.
-Raw-vegan foods include fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts.
-Raw food contains live enzymes which are denatured by heat when we cook.
-Live enzymes help cleanse the body and get rid of waste.
-Eating 70-80% raw will yield tons of benefits to your health, you only need to try it for a few days to feel the difference.

-Please refer to my article titled 'Stress: The silent killer'
-Most people respond to stress by overeating.
-Do more things that make you happy.
-Cultivate positive thoughts.
-Exercising 3 times a week is enough. Remember that weight loss is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise.
-Find an activity you enjoy doing: Walking, jogging, swimming, running, rowing, cycling etc
-Excess weight is caused by excessive waste in the body and calories the body can't use.
-Do a juice fast, go vegan for a week, meatless for a day or two each week or better yet.
***If you're really serious, I highly recommend you do the FYR 21-Day detox (Click this link to buy both e-Books with recipes for every meal of the 21 days. You don't have to wonder what to eat and what not to eat. Click HERE to purchase your ticket to a slimmer you by summer)
Flour-less Chocolate Brownies (Raw-vegan)
1 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup cacao powder
1 cup organic maple syrup (I use grade B)
1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
1 cup chopped almonds, chopped hazel nuts and dried cranberries
1 Tbsp coconut macaroons (optional)


Blend first four ingredients in a food processor with an 'S' blade until smooth.
Transfer mixture into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients except coconut macaroons and mix.
Pour into 9' inch glass dish and top with the coconut macaroons.
Cover with aluminium foil and place in freezer for about 45 minutes to an hour.
Take out of freezer and using a pizza cutter, slice brownie into desired squares for easy access.
Enjoy with a glass of almond milk. Save the rest for later in freezer.
