If you go there you can browse and buy books in multiple formats (for iPhone/iPad, Android, PC, Palm, etc), and if you’re an author they make it really simple to get your work out there for no charge with extensive online formatting and submission help.
So, if my short stories are free on Smashwords why not free on Amazon Kindle Store? Only reason is because Amazon don’t let you sell an eBook for free. In fact the minimum you can sell for is 99c/86p. However they do price match, so if they see it’s free on Smashwords they might drop the price down on their store too.
It’s all new for me, but I’m learning things every day! Oh, and enjoy the free storiesby
