    Default Smashwords? Am I missing something?

    As an author, I have my books up for sale for Nook and Kindle. However, am I missing out on something by not being on Smashwords? I find the formatting a bit confusing and difficult. Are there authors out there who think I am missing out on huge sales or something by not being on Smashwords and if anyone has any advice about how to format for the dang thing...I would appreciate it!
    Be sure to check out all of my novels available for the Nook.
    This novel, a thriller, is on sale for 99 cents all summer: After the Snowfall

    You are missing out on the other (potential) big market: the Apple iBookstore. Plus there are some other markets in the premium distribution (Sony, Kobo, etc).

    Just follow the style guide that Smashwords has on its website, its fairly simple stuff like removing styles and tabs from your manuscript. Which in turn makes for a cleaner read of your book. What you are missing out on is the really easy hassle free way to get yourself up on Kobo, Apple iBookstore, Sony Bookstore, eDiesel and Scrollmotion. Plus you have access to coupons and other features that can help you promote your work.

    Remember access to more markets, means more eyes, which means greater chance for sales.
