My smashwords book is doing great. Totally free of course, because I'd feel bad charging money for a dust-catcher. But...57 downloads in less than three hours? Even with the world's ugliest cover (because I'm cover-illiterate. It's black with white print, although I guess I could have done pink with purple script, I dunno)
I wanted to see the way the company worked, and wow. Their reader base is blowing me away.
This is a good thing. Dust-catchers unite. And check into smashwords.
