Smashwords is a free E-Book Publishing service,
and they offer a Free ISBN number. If your book passes their instructions,
they will offer your book to Amazon and others free to you.They receive a very small commission on each
sale compared to other sites who publish e-books.
Smashwords format for your manuscript is
Micro-soft Word with only two hard returns between each chapter.They desire the first page to have title, by author,
copyright by author, Smashwords edition , dedication if desired, with maybe four hard returns to separate each of those lines.
Type should be 12 point, either Times Roman or
Arial, and no use of tabs, only the hard return (enter key).
When your book has been
accepted, they ask you to go to their IBSN manager and apply for your free
number.Then go back into your
manuscript and beneath the copy right information, enter that ISBN number.Save your work, and now resubmit your
manuscript from the dashboard, and you should be a published author in Smashwords.
Mark Coker has a Free Style
Guide and also a Free How to publish an E-book.But the above simple explanation is how to do this.
Smashwords does require a PDF
book cover approximately 1600 x 2400 pixels.
For my book covers, I have
been using Fiverr.com and have found the best person to do a professional cover
a young mother of four children and works from her home.If she can use your picture, the cost is only
five dollars.If she must use a stock
photo that she pays for, there is an additional charge of five dollars.
