Please go take a look at this offering from Smashwords and report back.
Last night I got an email “alerting” me to an exciting new ebook being offered on Smashwords, a site I had never heard of. The idea is fine: ebooks can be published and read by anyone on the site.
So what happens when publishing becomes easier? You run into some things that might not have otherwise seen any light, and many/most of those things are hilariously bad.
Some of the authors seem to know this. Many of the books look fairly tongue-in-cheek. Not all.
Last night I spent over an hour just scrolling through romances and mysteries and fantasy ebooks and laughing at the descriptions. A very good time.
Ten years ago, I would have seen this site and would have filled it up with my own writing. And it would have been awful.
