I Just bought Patrica Ryan's backlist and a couple other authors
I am having problems getting a few coupons to work.
Anyone else with this problem?

All my coupon codes worked fine, but the site is very slow today...probably heavy traffic because of the sale. Maybe that is the problem.

I got 16 books and it is only the first day....I am doomed - in a good book-ish kinda way

It's this one here. It just wont work.

It really hard to sort through with it so slow.

I tried it and it didn't work for me either. I would contact smashwords or the author. Maybe it is a glitch with the coupon.

Thanks for trying. I sent Smashwords a email telling them.

Update: It's now working and it's Free instead of 50% off!

I have never been to Smashwords, so am going to check them out. I'm on a quest to find new authors and want to give indies a try. Preference is PNR, but also like to read fantasy and sci-fi
Really, LOL, I guess you could say them all, as I like historical romance, gothic, horror, western, mystery, suspense and others (just no menages or m/m, sorry not my cup of tea)

Do I have to have a coupon to get books?
Where do I find them?

Janette, for this promotion the coupon code will be listed on the book detail page right under the book price. Just add the book to your cart and you will see a box where you can input the code, then click the update button and it should apply the coupon. You can then check out or continue shopping for more books. You must apply the applicable code (they won't all be the same) for each book. The link in my original post should bring you to the list of the books that are on sale. Happy hunting!

This was my first time buying from Smashwords. I have gotten free books before but never purchase anything from them. I just spent $25 and got a load of backlist titles from various romance authors. I am done now. lol Still going through all the freebies for this promo which will take forever!

Just in case new people like me didn't know Smashwords does take PayPal!

Update: They remove the coupon for that book so I guess it was a mistake.

Try it again. RE100 is working for 100% off on the one you linked.

way cool! I had tried that one and all the other codes earlier and none worked on that book. Now that's what I call fixing it

Site update from Smashwords:

March 6, 2011 - Read an Ebook is off to a strong start. Several bugs were reported on the coupon codes, but we're stomping them out one at a time so things are almost fixed. Looks like we're on track to book record sales today, both in terms of number of books purchased and also revenue. Also on track to blow away previous records on number of page views and unique visitors. The site is holding up okay under the heavy traffc, though it is sluggish. I'll update some of the metrics above later today.
