Smashwords is good. It's difficult to do less than 99c 99p etc on Amazon.
Smashwords also distributes to Libraries, Kobo, Tolino, B&N (Nook), Apple Books etc.
Also NO-ONE *needs* the CC licence. It's just a convenience and may not be what you want. The default is "Copyright" which implies ALL rights are reserved. You can add a paragraph after the the ⓒ 2020 angharad09 which outlines what permissions you are releasing or retaining.
Upload epub2, a dual mobi that has old mobi and AZW/KF8 (because unlike Amazon, Smashwords doesn't know what Kindle someone has). You can also optionally upload a .doc for LRF, HTML, text and PDF options. However Smashwords has less than perfect .doc conversion.
Make the epub2 in Calibre from a docx import and then the dual mobi from the epub2. Use Tablet profile on page setup to avoid resizing images.
For LibreOffice (MS Office is similar)
Make sure you use Paragraph styles, all one page style with no header/footer, that any chapters are Level1 and anything not in the Table of Contents is body level, even a Title. Use Page Break Before any level that should start on a new page, but without a style.
Don't use Register True or Snap to Grid.
Edit and save in odt with an EXTRA SaveAs in docx for Calibre. Don't reload the docx. The only difference with MS Word is to use the docx for all open/save.
Do an extra Save As in MS doc format, that you never open, for Smashwords other than epub and kindle.

Oddly epub2 from Calibre via docx is the best format to upload to Amazon KDP too. They convert it perfectly to whatever formats are needed, including KFX with advanced features.
