Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere when he heard clapping and shouting. Following the noise took him to the Smashwords blog. There he found a post by Smashwords founder Mark Coker.
MeWow! Larger market distribution.
Mr Coker's post explains why Smashwords authors are so happy. Smashwords will begin distributing ebooks to Gardners Books on October 22. According to the post, Smashwords will supply 230,000 ebooks to Gardners Books. Gardners will make the ebooks available to stores, public libraries and academic libraries.
Panzer says, "This will open a whole new market for Smashwords authors."
