I skimmed it last night and found it very encouraging, especially concerning prospects for future sales. I also learned a new word - algorism (sp?). I knew this was happening, just didn't know it had a name. I am so glad I decided to stick with SW.

I whizzed through the book one afternoon. Really good stuff. What it boils down to, really, is the product. If your book isn't that great, you can do as much digital tap dancing as you like, it ain't gonna sell.

I also think that just having determination helps. True, my books began selling better when I began treating it as a career rather than some hobby I was doing like building model airplanes. Since then, I just keep relentlessly putting out more content and then doing what I can to network and market.
Having places like this forum is huge, however. I just want to take a moment to thank the creators of Smashwords Forum, too. This helps. Not being able to hold book signings is a bit of a disadvantage in the ebook world, and places like this allow us to interact with writers and readers.

Really good work. The digital book publishing landscape is growing so fast and this type of guide is very helpful for authors. always write a great book that provides solid worth to the reader. (Edited for spam.)
