Smashwords book reviews by Dr Alexander Elder

  • The Essentials of Digital Publishing on Oct. 08, 2011

    A brief and practical manual - i printed it out (only 26 pages), read it and marked it up, then followed its instructions as I published my first e-book (To Trade Or Not to Trade: A Beginner's Manual). Harvey hit all the key points: from formatting (no tabs, no footers, etc.) to cover design (various pixels for different websites), to distribution. Simple, practical, and useful!
