I fucking hate Smashwords

Smashwords is a very good concept, but the site itself fucking blows.

Its style guide is obtuse, confusing and useless; their idiot “meatgrinder” is a piece of shit which rejects things for idiot reasons that have nothing to do with the limitations of modern eReaders; the site is obnoxious to navigate, and I could probably go on from here but I shan’t.

The day I can I’m dropping their idiot fucking piece of shit arses and directly publishing this stuff on my own. Ignore all other advice I might have given recommending them.

That said Stolen Time is for sale now, sort of, it’s only available through their crap store until I can get done arguing with their idiotic submission system. And THEN I get to hope it doesn’t spend several months with its thumb up its arse before finally putting the book into eBook stores like it has done to more than a couple authors already.

Edit:  Until I can sort out that argument with their idiot software it is NOT for sale on their stupid store either.  Why?  Because the guy behind this garbage has a background in PR, not coding, from what I understand.  Needless to say the resulting document is completely insane.  I’ll get it polished up and have a buy now link eventually.
