Indie Pub Love: Smashwords

5 years ago

This week’s indie pub love goes out to Smashwords’ Mark Coker, self-publishing author-enabler with his wildly successful publishing engine. If you’re self-publishing a text heavy ebook this is the place to be. Smashwords only makes money when authors make money. They have no author services to sell you, not even a how-to guide because Mark gives those away free. Smashwords’ ability to generate ebooks definitely adds fuel to the fire under big-pub’s feet to treat authors more fairly by giving us options. Since it was founded in 2008 the gatekeeper mentality for book publishing has eroded. For this and so many other reasons, a big indie pub smooch to Smashwords!
