Smashwords Tools

Smashwords is an ebook distributer. They take our books and get them out to all major retailers such as Apple (iTunes), Barnes and Noble, Sony etc. (Basically everybody except Amazon).

We have developed a few tools to push Smashwords and to promote our books. We share them with everybody here. Most of them are Open Source.

Please note:
These tools are not developed or maintained by Smashwords.
We give them away for free but ask that you don’t misuse them. Be sensible please.
