Introduction to Smashwords

Smashwords is leading the way to publish ebooks, and it is the way I chose to get my stories onto the internet so others can enjoy them as much as I do.

Mark Coker has created a presentation on Introducing Smashwords and even if you are not ready to put your own novels up on Smashwords yet it is well worth taking the time to watch. You can click the links inside the presentation for further information on getting published the Indie way.

For all you NaNoWriMo authors who succeeded in typing The End on 30th November, there is an area on Smashwords to record your word count, and if you didn’t participate this year, there is always next year.

Keep writing.

    I’m having a lot of trouble with Smashwords. When i upload a Word file, Smashwords’s converter changes the layout of the pages, causing big blanks and things to appear on wrong pages. My eBook is not a novel and includes a lot of pictures, and I am good with Word. But for some reason, I keep getting all these errors, and having to wait hours to get through the queue to find out that one thing is off is extremely frustrating. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated! For instance, should I be setting Word’s margins to a certain size?

      I publish novels without pictures, except for the cover page. All I can offer as a suggestion is to follow each and every step in the Smashwords Style Guide and read each and every question in the Frequently Asked Questions. Both links are located here. Or pay someone to order your pictures and text for you. Good luck.
