August 24, 2016 - Smashwords today announced Smashwords Alerts, a new feature that automatically notifies readers when their favorite authors release a new book. To follow an author they love, readers simply click to the author's profile page at Smashwords and click the button to subscribe to author alerts. A couple weeks ago over at the e-reading enthusiast site Mobileread, I asked readers there to identify their single most important method of book discovery.
The #1 most-cited method is to look first for the latest books from their favorite authors.
For release dates between January 1 and 8, 2017, the delivery deadline is Friday, December 16, 2016 (PST) which means you should upload your final manuscript on or before December 15. Get your holiday releases up on preorder now if they're not already up on preorder.
Preorders always receive expedited review and processing at Smashwords.
It's not uncommon for a preorder listing uploaded in the morning to appear at retailers like i Books and Kobo within a couple hours. The deadline for final file delivery for preorders is 10 days before your on sale date.
If your book is uploaded at the last minute and it doesn't meet retailer requirements, it will delay delivery. If you require any special assistance to make your deadlines, please contact our support team by clicking the "? Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
September 28, 2016 - Smashwords Coupons have been enhanced with two new capabilities: 1.
Metered coupons - allows you to limit the number of redemptions to create greater reader urgency. Descriptive campaign labels - makes it easier for you to monitor your different coupon campaings. Click on your Dashboard's Coupon Manager to try it today. September 13, 2016 - Last week we made an error while loading B&N sales data which caused erroneous prices to be reflected in earnings. For a few brief moments today, you may notice the sales disappear before they reappear in their accurate form a few minutes later.
We're sorry for any confusion this may have caused.
