Smashwords cooperate with Apple to let independent writers publish their own books

April 3, 2010

Smashwords, a digital publishing platform, had signed a distribution deal for e-books in iBookstore of Apple with an aim to help independent authors publish their books free of charge, according to the Latest Gadget report.

Mark Coker, the founder of Smashwords, has sent over 4,000 authors in his proud Smashwords network, providing them with the information related to how to upload their masterpieces onto the online bookstore.
The report said that these e-books are estimated to be priced at $.99 each, while some of them might be offered for free. Moreover, Apple requires an e-book to have price less than a printed version of a book.
The digital publishing company had published more than 9,000 e-books, some of them were even written by famous writers such as Anne Frasier, Gary Wolfe and Mark Sullivan. Its cooperation with Apple would discover more talents and inspire sparkles for the dull publishing industry.

    Smashwords allows publishers to publish eBooks, too. This feature has made MilSpeak Foundation’s nonprofit publishing division possible. We publish books written by military people whose work most often go unnoticed. I’ve been using Smashwords for a while now, and it’s great. Allows buyers to download in nearly every format out there, and to nearly every reader. Plus, the premium catalog gets the books to Barnes & Noble, Sony, Amazon & IBookstore right away. eBooks come in all prices and genres.
