Smashwords Published Books

When I first started out I was on the Kindle Direct platform and found it too restrictive since Amazon frowns on you advertising your books on both Amazon and any other web site. Seems to me the more publicity a book gets the more chances there are of people buying it. It was ridiculous of them since you had to go to the Amazon site to buy the books.

So I tried out Smashwords for several years. Has it been better? In a way, and then in a way it isn’t so hot either. In the past year or year and a half they seem to have stopped pushing the books at all. Latest cheery email from Smashwords told me I’d earned a whopping 89 cents. Barely enough to cover the cost of the electricity needed to open the email.

Where to now? Several other place, back to Amazon sans KDP, Ingram Spark and finally into the iBooks ocean without actually owning a Mac computer.


Below are the books still for sale on Smashwords along with the buy buttons.

The QSL Book

The QSL Book

eBook: $1.99

To begin with, it isn’t so much about the QSL card as it is about the whole QSL process. I was surprised to learn that some hams haven’t a clue when it comes to sending or requesting QSL confirmation of a QSO. And it doesn’t seem to matter whether it is done digitally or the traditional paper QSL card.

Controversial Subjects: And What The Holy Bible Says About Them (Dr. Gene Pritchard Book 1)

Controversial Subjects: And What The Holy Bible Says About Them (Dr. Gene Pritchard Book 1)

eBook: $2.99

Today’s preacher seems to preach on subjects that put butts in seats and give their congregations warm fuzzy feelings. Meanwhile, they neglect their flock by avoiding some of the subject people need to grow closer to the Lord. People need to hear about these difficult subjects, especially when it’s a part of their daily lives. Many of these controversial subjects are stumbling points for people in a congregation, and it’s a pastor’s responsibility to teach them about them.

Preachers who avoid subjects their flock may have problems with doing them great harm, spiritually speaking. These controversial, yet important, topics were included in the Bible for a reason, and a preacher risks become nothing more than a hireling by avoiding them in their weekly sermons.

Biblical Teachings of Dr. Gene Pritchard

Biblical Teachings of Dr. Gene Pritchard

eBook: $2.99

Adversity, Christology, Fasting, The Miracles of Jesus Christ, Soul-Winning.
Adversity, better known as why bad things happen to good people is, is used by God to draw us into a closer relationship with Him.
Christology, a brief but interesting look at the life of Jesus. Many professing Christians discount the Old Testament because they feel Jesus isn’t mentioned there. This text alone disproves that theory.
Fasting, more than a way to lose weight although Doctor Pritchard does go into detail about his own mastery of obesity using biblical fasting.
The miracles of Jesus have been covered by a good many pastors, authors and so forth. This sermon brings some interesting insights into the issue.
Soul-winning, a popular name for evangelism. As Doctor Pritchard has taught over the years: you can get someone saved until you get them lost.
