020 - Mark Coker - Founder of Smashwords and Author
If you've got beef with Amazon and KDP, this episode is for you. Mark Coker tells you all you need to know as an author about how Amazon works, and uses creative analogies to do so. But there are alternatives to Amazon. Namely, his platform Smashwords.
Mark Coker, founder of the ebook publishing and distribution platform, Smashwords talks with Jeniffer and Chad about the world of Indie publishing. He tells them about why and how he started Smashwords, the inner workings of the machine that is Amazon, how Smashwords is different, and they discuss what it really means to be an Indie author. And of course, there are some fun, off topic musings about talking Japanese toilets.
