The average person can read 4 or 5 times faster than someone can talk, esp. if they're trying to explain something. Is there a book for this presentation?

Adele Celeste says:

This video is almost the same as the first tutorial in the series.

It is comical to think that people are NEVER going fight for a cause online (political or religious) or have a bad day or have a bad experience with a company. It will be online, because that is life. I agree that you should be positive whenever possible, but we are human beings and we should not try to be fake.

You need to be honest above all. I sincerely hope that book reviewers and product reviewers are not lying if they say something is good. You should not be encouraging people to be positive at the expense of the truth. I refuse to give positive views about negative experiences I have had. I do not want to build my career on deceit. We need truthful reviews!

I want to thank Mark for everything, including my resurgence of optimism out of a hopeless feeling because of problems with the paper industry approach to publishing. It's also very refreshing to be in touch with a real person, and who is offering so much to me, to help me. I cannot express my appreciation adequately. Thank you, Mark!.

Thank you so much for this video! It opened my eyes to what Smashwords is about. I appreciate the video's practicality and honesty. It doesn't sound like so many of the overnight success promises I've seen on other self-publishing websites. I'm planning on using Smashwords as soon as my book is ready, hopefully in a few weeks!

Is SMASHWORDS only for people in the United States? I have just written my memoirs, and would like to consider the company because of this video. Can you let me know.

Siegfried Walther says:

What impresses me about Mark Coker is that he is not into making a money at someone else's expense. His idea is to help is authors become better at what they do, which, in the longer term, will make more money for his authors. When that happens, he will also will profit. It's about a partnership where everyone benefits!!

Farook Maricar says:

Thanks much Mark. Great information to put me pointed in the right direction. Look forward to putting them to good use…
