            What is Smashword?
              • Re: Free Smashword titles

                Marked, Soul Guardians Book 1  To promote the release of my second book, Marked is now free on Barnes & Noble and on Smashwords.





                Sixteen year-old Kara Nightingale’s ordinary life is suddenly turned upside-down when she dies in a freak accident, and she wakes up in a strange new world with a new career—as a rookie for the Guardian Angel Legion. Kara hurtles towards dangerous missions with the help of her Petty Officer and friend, David.

                But when she discovers a Mark on her leg, the entire Legion accuses her of being a Demon spy. Angels are dying, and David begins to pull away from her. Can Kara prove her innocence as she becomes the Legion’s only hope?

                It’s going to take a miracle to save the Legion, and Kara’s luck has just run out...

                    OK, I am going to ask a very stupid question, but oh well...


                    I get that there is a 'free' thread and Doug and others try to use that to highlight books that perhaps are not usually free but are offered as special books for a limited period.  And I see comments that they are books from publishers.


                    I also get there are 'smashwords' titles that number in the thousands, and thus we want to keep the lists seperate.


                    BUT BUT BUT here is my question


                    What exactly then is Smashword?  are they books that are written solely for the intent to be free?  who is writting these books?  I know it is super subjective but as a whole are they quality books?


                    I guess overall I am confused about what is smashword, and how it differs if you will from a 'normal' book.
