I'm about ready to publish with you.  I'm loading the files etc.  I don't notice an offer to preview the book before I actually commit to the publishing.  Any advice?  Thanks.

Excellent video!!Excellent! Mark explains everything to a detail!! Wish I knew about Smashwords before going exclusive with KDP SELECT which did not bring me much visibility to a more diverse pool of readers! Loved Mark's take on Marketing! Have a listen! Just excellent!
