Many people have not heard of Smashwords, hopefully what I say, will educate you amazing winners.
As an Indie Author, who has self published 11 eBooks with them, what I write is mainly from my author point of view.
I liken Smashwords to a distributor, where you can buy direct from the Author.
There are thousands of unknown authors using the site, many who would not have otherwise been able to publish, without the amazing website.
Customers are able to choose the format, and pay the Authors price, not the inflated prices of eRetailers.
Smashwords also allow authors to place their titles on sale if they wish.
Several times per year Smashwords host various sales, where Austhors choose whether to participate or not.
The benefits of eBooks are:
Can have multiple titles on a device.
No cutting down of trees to produce the paper.
Authors can make changes as required, and have the updated version back on sale within hours, whereas print, can take months.
Most authors keep the cost low, from as low as $0.99 USD.
I myself, like to keep my titles under $5 USD.
If you love finding hidden gems, at bargain prices, then I highly recommend checking out Smashwords.

I'm a Transfemale, whose life has not been great, lied to about various things.
I've also been lied about, which is very unfair.
Hatched in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
Knew at 4, in 1970, that I was a gurl, but unable to do anything about it.
Used & abused by others, including being molested from 6-14 by a relative, viciously assaulted, and left to die at 16, I was left infertile, & little interest in anything remotely physical.
Wanted to be a Journalist, but because of assault, unable to continue my schooling.
Because of molestation and assault, I have major trust issues.
To keep the peace & make my father happy, did what he wanted, except join Defence Forces, Guns Scare ME.
I have written & Self-Published 11 eBooks, Link below.
I moved to Melbourne Australia February 2015, which has been good.
Have since left there.
My 2022 goal is to raise enough funds to finally Establish MCC.
I plan to employ Humans & Train them in Transferrable Skills.
I also plan to employ humans suffering from illness & disease, so they have flexibility for appointments.
MCC will observe COVID safe practices long after they have been discontinued by others.
All Team Members will be required to wear PPE when in the Production area.
Shares are $5 AUD each. The reason why they are low, is to allow all everyday winners the chance to share the wealth and help create MCC.
Shareholders will share 80% of Annual After Tax profit, paid early November each year, hopefully starting late 2023.
Multiple Incomes are the way of the future.
