Well, I did it, I uploaded a copy of The Red Shoes for worldwide distribution on the Smashwords website and on its first day it had been downloaded over 40 times with 1 review.
I was surprised, I have to admit, mainly because I was unaware of Smashwords’ popularity. Okay, I was ignorant, am ignorant, of the epublishing world. It will take me a long time to get the hang of it, and by then it will have, no doubt, morphed once more.
As a Smashwords virgin I was apprehensive about making a piece of work available, but now that I have made that leap I do believe it will be hard not to keep uploading material if only because I am bound to get hooked onto the drug of reviews.
Of course, now I can’t help popping in and out of Smashwords to see the stats info, not dissimilar to an actor constantly peering through the curtains. Peek-a-boo!
