Smashwords Direct alpha testing underway. We’re preparing to launch Smashwords Direct, our direct .epub upload option. One year ago in my 2011 annual year-in-review over at the Smashwords Blog, we made a commitment to launch SWD in the second half of 2012. We’re working to fulfill that commitment. We’re nearing completion of a beta version of SWD. The first iteration will enable those of you with professionally designed .epub files to replace your current Smashwords-generated .epub with another .epub. It’ll also allow authors to upload .epub files instead of Word .doc files.
Link to the rest at Smashwords and thanks to Mary for the tip.
