Echoes of the Divine is my first e-book and it is free. You can help me if you download this mini e-book and gave it a rating because if it is successful, a publisher might consider my upcoming book. How about checking it out and giving me some honest feedback so I can learn. The book has received premium status already and will be listed on Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Nobles within days.
And don’t forget, I will be happy to answer any questions. Trust me, no question will sound dumb to me because I have asked them all. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/521798
It took me a year to read the more than 100 pages of Smashwords Style Guide. However, the guide explains every step with diagrams and in ordinary terms ...but I am a technological idiot. After days of fumbling, forcing myself to work as if I was technologically intelligent, I finally self-published a short, free e-book on Smashwords.
Supposedly, this process only takes a couple of hours but I inadvertently downloaded Microsoft doc.x instead of a simple doc. file. Then, I typed the meta tag for my name without capitals which prevented the entire thing from working. That little mistake took hours to uncover.
Finally, my cover was one I designed on Word and took a couple of days to decide upon which version to use but I could not convert it into a jpg image. It was difficult to find an image with enough pixels on the internet. In the end, I simply found a huge old master painting by Mary Cassatt, used Pic Monkey photo editing and slapped on a title but it looks okay. Figuring out how to get a free ISBN from the Canadian site called Ciss ( kiss) wasted more hours.
