Indie Authors

This post may be old news for some of you, but I thought I would share my experience with Smashwords. I’m just starting my writing journey with them and found it is quite beneficial to publish with them. The first must do is to read the style guide, which they offer for free. Formatting is a big deal. Another big one is your cover. It must meet their standards, but it wasn’t expensive to do. I bought the image that you see here for just eleven dollars from http://www.Dreamstime.com

If you follow all of their guideline, your story would be eligible for inclusion in their premium catalog. The big advantage is that Smashwords will provide you with an ISBN number at no charge and your book will be distributed to 50 countries as well as being listed with Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Sony,Apple iBookstore,and Diesel.

I hope this will help some of you are just getting started.
