Today I’d like to introduce you to the Smart Author Podcast by Mark Coker of Smashwords. Smashwords is an ebook distributor. (If you are new to self or indie publishing, an ebook distributor means that when you upload your book to Smashwords, it also goes out to Nook, iBooks, Kobo, etc.)
The Smart Author Podcasts are great for both new and seasoned author/publishers. I began publishing in 2012 and was glad to find Smashwords back then. I’ve been with them ever since. Because the publishing industry is always changing, there’s always more to learn.
With podcasts on topics such as Best Practice Secrets of Bestselling Authors, Working with Beta Readers, and Marketing to Libraries, you can now listen to great advice and information while you commute or do household chores. Each podcast also includes a transcript and links so you don’t have to scribble down your own notes.
I particularly enjoyed the most recent episode on marketing to libraries. I publish both print and ebooks and hadn’t thought much about marketing ebooks to libraries. The episode was full of valuable information.
Please take a look at this great resource now and start listening today! You’ll be glad you did.
