  1. Thank you. This was an excellent article, both in terms of its analysis of present conditions, and the forecasts it makes for the future.

      1. I think the only thing i don’t like about Smashwords is having to save your manuscript file to an earlier WORD Doc… 97 i think it is. In the Six years I’ve published it’s never been updated.

        It’s overall a pretty good site and easy to use. You just have to check your specifics like you do for all distribution websites.
