Couture at Barnes&Nobel

Hahaha. Really, I'm not kidding.

Click Here.

I really like testing new ways of sharing my work and seeing where it takes me. I'm not quite sure what this would mean for the future, but it's an option.

So now there is the question of how I did this. Well, I decided to take advantage of the services offered by Smashwords. It is a really awesome site, and for free it will allow you to submit your book and have it available at all of these different retailers. For me, the process between submitting and having it publicly available took about two months. The copyright is still completely mine; Smashwords is just listed as the publisher.

Here is the complete list of retailers where Couture can be downloaded:

Barns&Nobel
Sony
Kobo
Diesel
Apple (ibook store)
Scrollmotion
Smashwords


I have tested out reading Couture on my ereader at home, and I love the way it looks. I really do. Believe it or not, it's actually a bit different from reading it on my computer. I guess the pages look more close up and personal.


If you know what ebook format your device uses or if you only want the PDF, you can download Couture straight from Smashwords, and pick which format is for you. If you don't know which format you need, the list below will be helpful.

So share this post with friends, acquaintances, and complete and total strangers. :P

And if you've read Couture before, it would be beyond awesome if you would go to Barnes&Nobel or one of these other sites, and rate it/give it a review. That would be really appreciated! <3
