How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has provided me with an outlet to publish stories for free distribution to get my work circulating.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I normally look for recommendations through television, forums and fellow writers on various forums. I do like to browse for non-fiction titles, but I'll often try and seek out the ebook version of a particular title before I buy a paperback version.
