Self-publishing is an amazing innovation that’s revolutionizing the publishing industry — and how we read. It can also make it quite hard to find a good book, as we’re inundated with new titles every. single. day. Enter our feature: Your Next Favorite Book, where we’ll preview some of the most popular titles about to be released from self-publishing platform Smashwords. This way, you’ll know ahead of time what you’ll want to be reading ASAP. Sound good?
This month, we’ve also got an awesome mega giveaway at the end of the post — so be sure to read on!
