Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I think a lot of e-readers are great, I have tried Nook, Kindle, Play Books and variations of ported readers for Android, iPad and iPhone. The Android readers are the most convenient for my pocket device and busy lifestyle. I tend to favor the Kindle for Android.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
We've gotten a lot of new readers from announcements we've made through Twitter. We've found and followed a lot of reasonably well-known "indie authors" who have been gracious enough to follow-back and then re-tweet our announcements, which we make no more than once a day. I think that being part of the community and offering feedback to submitters, offering advice in our WordPress blog and taking the time to read what other authors and magazines have to say has been a great way for us to network.
