Smashwords Sunday: 2012 is History

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!

Smashwords Sunday Synergy

Mark Coker’s Smashwords is a great alternative to Amazon for book-lovers. Coker is not selling boil-in-bag toast and camouflage snuggies. Smashwords is all about eBooks.

Joe Amazon sells eBooks too—for Kindle. If you happen to have Kobo, Nook, Sony or some other e-reader, well that is not really Joe Amazon’s concern. He’ll be happy to sell you a Kindle.

Coker himself is an indie author who experienced the same reflexive rejection from traditional publishing as have most of us. He founded Smashwords to help indie authors. The royalty percentage from Smashwords is far more generous than that offered by Joe Amazon.

Smashwords is not perfect. They have some areas of operation that still need improvement, but I do believe they have the indies’ best interests at heart. Can you say the same about Joe?

Let’s take a few moments today to spread the love a bit and support indie authors and Smashwords. Take a peek at some of these titles. If you see something you like, just click the cover and learn a little more—maybe even buy a book. Continue reading “Smashwords Sunday Synergy”
