As many of you know, there are many eBook publishers and retailers out there besides Amazon – if you only rely on the Amazon Kindle store to “feed” your Kindle, you may miss out on a lot of independent authors out there who write some really nice stories!
Smashwords is an ebook publishing and distribution platform for ebook authors, publishers and readers. They offer multi-format, DRM-free ebooks, ready for immediate sampling and purchase, and readable on any e-reading device. At Smashwords, the authors and publishers have complete control over the sampling, pricing and marketing of their written works.
For readers, Smashwords provides an opportunity to discover new voices in all categories and genres of the written word. Once you register, the site offers useful tools for search, discovery and personal library-building, and each week they add new features based on feedback from members.
