I’ve been publishing with Smashwords for almost two years and it’s been a wonderful experience. As always they’re constantly adding new things to help authors. The Preorder choice has been available for several months. I tried it with Victoria, but I didn’t give it much time and wasn’t very successful. Totally my fault. I didn’t allow enough time to gather interest.
But as always, we learn from our mistakes and try again as I will do with my newest book “Finding The Right Time”. Mark Coker has written a great post to help with the logistics of marketing your Preorder, setting it up and anything you’d need to know. It’s a wonderful tool and every author should try this out. I will be following his every instruction and look forward to how it works out. I will update this post when I know more.
For now, here’s a link to the post from Mark Coker. If you’re an author you need to read it. If you’re a reader it could help you gather up some new books and have them as soon as they come out.<div style=”margin-bottom:5px”> <strong> <a href=”https://www.slideshare.net/Smashwords/hit-the-ebook-bestseller-lists-with-preorders-a-guide-to-preorder-strategy” title=”Hit the Ebook Bestseller Lists with Preorders: A Guide to Preorder Strategy” target=”_blank”>Hit the Ebook Bestseller Lists with Preorders: A Guide to Preorder Strategy</a> </strong> from <strong><a href=”http://www.slideshare.net/Smashwords” target=”_blank”>Smashwords, Inc.</a></strong> </div>
