Tools for Smashwords authors

I've created a page on my website that has a couple of tools that Smashwords authors might find useful.

The first is a tool to make a link to your book in the Apple iBookstore from the ISBN.

The second is a tool to make an animated GIF from book covers. The images to be used have to be hosted on Smashwords.

I may add more in future. The page is at http://www.russellphillipsbooks.co.uk/pages/tools.php

Thanks The one to make a link to the iBookstore came about because I wanted an easier way to find my books there. Once it was written it was no difficulty to make it available to everyone else.

The animated GIF one I did as something of a learning exercise. I figured that some people might like to use an animated GIF of their covers as an avatar (assuming they're allowed - I haven't checked)

The ibookstore tool is great! Not having a single apple product in the house made finding that a pain. Thanks!

Thanks!

Avantman42,

Thanks you so much. I found my novels! I searched and searched before and didn't know if they were up yet on Apple books. (I don't have an Apple device either.)

I'm excited is an understatement. Thanks again.

As I said before, I wrote the iBookstore tool to make life simpler for myself. That said, I'm very pleased that others are getting some use out of it as well

I think that's one of the great things about the internet. A person can create something like your iBookstore tool out of personal need and be able to share it with others with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Exactly - it was no more difficult for me to make it available than it was to keep it private. In such a case, why keep it to myself?
