How to Presell Your E-Book using Smashwords

Jun 29th 2015 at 8:55 AM

I publish my ebooks using Smashwords.  Recently, Smashwords announced a new feature that lets authors presell their works (referred to as Preorders), months before their completion (no - you don't have to have finsihed your entire work to presell with this new feature)!

You can now set up a preorder for your book that is in work, is not really even a book yet and doesn't even have a cover selected.

Smashwords has noted, "Over the last 12 months, ebooks born as preorders at Smashwords earned more than triple the earnings of books that were simply uploaded the day of release."

This is really exciting on many levels,  The most important of all is that it allows you the time to complete your work while already selling copies!

To view their blog and learn more about this exciting feature,
