What’s cool about Smashwords is that they are an independent company of 14 workers who support independent, indie, and commercial authors. They cater to the little guy (and the big guy too) giving them access to the big publishing corporations that might not otherwise be possible. Not only that, Mark Coker has been a positive inspiration to BookBarista.com and has pointed his customers in our direction so they could advertise with us for FREE:) That is an awesome gesture in this world of competition and it shows his spirit of professional duty to the lesser known guy.
So congrats to Smashwords, Mark Coker, and his staff of dedicated souls. You’re doing it right!
