Smashwords author/publisher alert

I got excited when I received this email the other day.  
Smashwords announced a distribution agreement with ScrollMotion today (May 4) that will 
make Smashwords Premium Catalog ebooks available for sale as single-book apps 
in the major app marketplaces including Apple, Android, Windows Phone 7 and HP's 

Read the full blog post with all details here:

Opt in is automatic.  The conversion of your ebook into an app is completely 
free to you.  In the past, authors would often have to pay thousands of dollars 
to have their books converted into apps.

You'll earn 60% of the list price, same as with all Smashwords retailers.

If you wish to opt out (which I *do not* recommend), visit your Smashwords Dashboard 
at  We will commence shipments on Friday.

If you want your book(s) distributed as apps, you don't have to do anything other 
than ensure your book is accepted into the Premium Catalog.
