Received an email today from Smashwords. Seems the competition (I’m assuming this of course) has encouraged them to make some changes.
They’re now paying their authors monthly and they’re sending payments no matter what their account balances are at…used to be they’d only send a payment when your balance reached $10.
Good for them…they’re narrowing the distinctions between distributors, so an author will have to do a lot more digging to decide who they want to sign up with.
Now if only they’d format books for authors like Direct 2 Digital…maybe that’s next?
Now that this has happened I’ll need to do some more research before I decide whether or not to make a move to either D2D or Pronoun. It is convenient having my author profile, etc. already set up in Smashwords…(am I lazy? yeah, sometimes 🙂 ).
