Good news for independent authors. EBook community Wattpad has partnered with eBook publishing and distribution platform Smashwords. Both services are free for authors, who can use Wattpad to build a community and Smashwords to self-publish and sell works.
Under the terms of the agreement, Wattpad and Smashwords will cross-promote each other and they will integrate services.
Wattpad gets about 10 million visits a month, which could mean a pretty big audience for an indie writer.
