Smashwords book reviews by Anne Skalitza

  • Smashwords Style Guide on May 25, 2012

    When I first considered publishing my book via Smashwords, I felt intimidated. Could I do this? Would the resulting work look good? How hard IS it to do? This book was excellent. I read it through, then took my manuscript and worked on it, step by step. Formatting wasn't as hard as I thought it would be because the author truly put it in layperson's terms, along with illustrations. Amazing also what I learned about Word! (And I've been using Word for years.)
