  • Smashwords Style Guide on Dec. 25, 2012

    Thank you for this simple, but detailed instruction. When it was suggested that authors should use the Style Guide I didn't hesitate. Okay, I admit, I read it twice before I went for it - and the Nuclear option ... OMG. I would recommend this guide to anyone who intends to self-publish and I recommend the Nuclear option. Pardon the pun, but it's best to 'bite the bullet' on that one. I don't know how my novel is going to do as time goes on, but I've been marketing since publishing, using the appropriate guide! I've also now published three books of poetry, which admittedly were a bit more difficult to format. My books have all successfully made it into the Premier Catalog. I will definitely be publishing here again. Mark, you are a class act my friend. Thank you
