Smashwords Named among Top 10 E-Publishers in P&E Poll

Predators & Editors, a service dedicated to helping authors navigate the shark infested waters of book publishing, conducted a reader survey poll last month across a number of different categories, one of which was "Best E-Publisher."

Smashwords scored #6. Not bad. Next year, maybe we'll win. Special thanks to Smashwords author Rita Hestand for nominating us, Rebecca Vickery for telling me about it, and everyone who voted for us!

If you're not familiar with P&E, check out this post I wrote December, 2008 (boy, how time flies), Three Websites Help Indie Authors Stay out of Harm's Way, where I reviewed Predators & Editors, Piers Anthony's Internet Publishing Survey and Victoria Strauss' Writer Beware.

I just believe in supporting your publisher, especially if they offer something more than just being published. Mark Coker has done a terrific job of keeping so many happy at Smashwords. At last a self publishing avenue that works!
Credit goes to Mark Coker, a man with a definite plan to succeed. Can't wait to see what happens next, and yes, next year you'll be first...
