There is a thread for markets at the bottom. Maybe that would be the place for that discussion? this one is supposed to be for covers and formatting.

I'm so glad to read of your experience. It is always nice to get first hand information on this kind of thing. I am planning to go the Smashwords route when I wrap up my novel sometime in November (I'm estmating) and I am pleased to hear, expecially, that the ePub conversion experience went smoothly. I have been very concerened about that, having come across some horribly formatted ePubs on their site. It left me wondering if the author did something wrong or if whatever conversion tool Smashwords uses was glitchy.

What's your book title?

I'm glad you found my account of the self-publishing process useful, gesler0811. I haven't published on Amazon yet, but do intend to do so. If I come up against any problems, I'll let you know about them.

My book is called "Brotherly Love" written under a pseudonym. It is adult romantic fiction. Not your cup of tea? Not mine, really, either, but it makes a change from YA/SciFi - my usual genre. Good luck in going the Smashwords route. :D

Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

Way to go, Dorothy! I'm scared of you!! Heck, I don't even know how to do that!

Here's to you selling many, many more! :D

Thank you, writesistah! I was scared, but I had nice people holding my hand all the way through the process. They'll help you, too. You only have to ask. :)

Thank you, Rebecca. I've got another book out there now so, once again, I'm hoping for sales. :D

Congrats! Smashwords formatting requirements can be daunting. LOL

But unfortunately, sales on Smashwords can be slow. 95% of my book sales are through Amazon.

Anyhoo, best of luck with your writing career!
