Smashwords has now been in existence for three years. Over those three years indie publishing has grown from a writer's dirty little secret to a worldwide phenomenon and Smashwords has been at the forefront.
Now a writer can upload their writing to Smashwords and sell it from there or, going through the Premium Catalog, use Smashwords as their distributor to Barnes & Nobles' Nook store, Kobo, Diesel, etc. That's quite a history for just three years.
If you're interested in the history of this growing industry, you can read about it at Three Year Retrospective, and a Look Ahead
Can you tell I'm a big fan of Smashwords and what they've done for the writing community?
