Smashwords Allows Assetless Ebook Preorders

Smashwords now allows authors and publishers to establish a preorder option for their titles before their final manuscripts and covers are uploaded to the platform. With assetless preorders, Smashwords users can list their titles for preorder from major ebook retailers up to 12 months in advance of the official on-sale date.

According to Mark Coker, the company’s founder, “ebooks born as preorders at Smashwords earned more than triple the earnings of books that were simply uploaded the day of release” in the past year.

For more information, read the blog post.
