Introduction to eBook Self-publishing
Mark Coker is the founder of Smashwords. Its mission is simple, says Coker. "We want to create the world's single best ebook publishing and distribution platform for our indie authors, publishers, literary agents and retailers."
Coker is the co-author of Boob Tube, a novel that explores the wild and wacky world of Hollywood celebrity. He also wrote the Smashwords Book Marketing Guide (how to market any book for free), the Smashwords Style Guide (how to format, produce and publish an ebook) and The 10-Minute PR Checklist (helps entrepreneurs and business managers think more strategically about public relations).
