- Smashwords Book Marketing Guide
on Sep. 29, 2012
Someday, I'd like to thank Mark Coker, in person, for everything he has done for me. One of the first guides I read prior to publishing my first eBook in March of 2011 was Mr. Coker's free "Style Guide," (How to format, produce and publish an ebook.)
My knowledge and experience in publishing and marketing a book at that time was zip, zero, nada, nothing, and the style guide was a great place to start. I quickly downloaded this book, "Smashwords Book Marketing Guide," and everything else Mark and Smashwords offered.
Since March of 2011, my ebook, "Emergency Laughter" has sold over 17,000 copies and is a TOP 100 bestselling medical humor ebook. I'm sorry to say, that even though virtually none of those sales, were directly through smashwords, the knowledge and techniques I learned here, played a huge roll in my success.
My point is, that it all STARTED with this book and all the other vital information Mark Coker provided, to a then unemployed and broke humor writer. I highly recommend all of his guides. I still use them as a checklist, so I know, all my bases are covered. Thank you Mr. Coker!
