Becoming a Smashwords Affiliate
Did you know you don't have to be an author to earn money from ebooks?
We, and many other authors, sell our e-books at Smashwords too. Would you like to become an affiliate and earn 35% commission on our book sales there? You'll need a Smashwords account which is easy to set up here. You'll also have to register as an affiliate. Check out how to do that here.
Once you've done that you'll be given a Smashwords ScreenName. You simply append the text, "?ref=yourScreenName" at the end of any Smashwords book web address and paste that link in your social media pages, web pages etc. Add a description or recommendation if you wish.
Smashwords makes affiliate payments by PayPal but won't make payments until you've earned at least $25.00.
Here's the links to our books at Smashwords. Don't forget to add that ?ref=… bit at the end:
