Smashwords Profiled on GetPublishedTV

I was browsing the Twittersphere tonight and stumbled across this pleasant surprise.

Dale Beaumont, an Australian author and entrepreneur behind a very cool Internet television show I hadn't heard of before, GetPublishedTV, has produced an engaging nine minute video segment on Smashwords.

I'm flattered and tickled pink. I don't know what it is about Australians. So many of them on are the cutting edge of digital publishing and indie publishing - there's Mel Keegan, Alan Baxter, Joanna Penn and several others. I just want to give 'em all a hug. Special thanks to Joanna Penn of The Creative Penn for introducing Dale to Smashwords. And of course my thanks to Dale for the fabulous introductory profile of Smashwords!

SEPTEMBER 6 UPDATE: Dale has released a second video titled, "Marketing Your Book on Smashwords," explaining Smashwords from a publisher's perspective.

Thanks for the shout-out Mark! You know I am a huge fan of Smashwords and I am always talking about your site. Given that discriminates against non-US authors and publishers, Smashwords is the international ebook platform of choice!
Thanks also for your personal help on the B&N publishing side, Joanna
