I have been publishing on Smashwords for four years now, and most of the tricks I learned from the books written by Mark Coker.
This book is going to be a boon if you are going to self publish, or if you have already published but did not get encouraging results.
Thanks to Mark Coker
I have published on Smashwords for years and used Mark Coker's guide on how to publish there and this one on marketing. They are easy to understand and there is a bit of humor. What you learn here applies to marketing books no matter where you sell them. Highly recommended!
