2012 is about to be history and what better way to celebrate than reading a little history ourselves? Here is a selection of historical titles from Mark Coker’s Smashwords. Remember, Smashwords is your alternative to mighty Joe Amazon. As an independent author himself, Coker relates to the trials and tribulations of the indie in a way that eludes Amazon, so let’s show him a little support!
If you have a historical title we missed, feel free to put your Smashwords link in the comment section below.
Just click the covers to take a look or buy the book!
