Short post because, as you can see, I've gone all 21st Century. Here's a screencast of my first upload to Smashwords. The production values may not be too shiny but hopefully anyone considering self-publishing but nervous of the technology will find that this gives them a good idea of what to expect.


Incidentally, at one point you will see that Smashwords asks for an ISBN, which I don't have. Apparently Smashwords will give you an ISBN free but they become the publisher of the book at that point. I am considering whether this is my best move. I'm not keen on ISBNs and how they affect the tax status of your book-shaped objects/data but apparently two of the major platforms won't accept e-books with no ISBN. Meanies.
