The thing to remember, though is that if you start with an epub, that's the only format you get.

You're best off going through meatgrinder first and then following it up with your own epub.

Not true. I always start with an EPUB and later when I get around to it meat grind through the others. Never had a problem.

Sorry, I was unclear.

I meant that if you upload an EPUB you don't get any of the other formats until you upload a .doc file.

Oh, that is correct. You also will not get a "sample" on their store until you do that. The EPUB is primarily for their distribution channels, which is 90% of the reason I am in their store to begin with.

Interesting site.. I listed a first novel on Smashwords.
I looked up the BBB complaints on Smashwords. I noticed complaints , such as "I was owned 11.00 and received only 4.65..."

Uhh- that is 44.00 a YEAR in sales. Perhaps at 44.00 , one should consider an alternative career..
