Forgive me for crowing, but... WAAAHOOOOO!!!!
It took me - no joke - two weeks to figure out how to format & post my sci fi short story 'Trades' to Smashwords. Getting a cover done just about killed me, because I have NO clue what i'm doing with graphics. I finally succeeded only because so many other people pitched in and helped me out. FINALLY got it to post around 10;00 last night.
AND SOMEBODY JUST BOUGHT THE FIRST DOWNLOAD!!!!!
Can you tell I'm thrilled? DO check the story out (You can browse the first 10% of 'Trades' without buying). The link is https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/369461
