Smashwords Now Updates Readers on New Titles

By Dianna Dilworth 

Self-publishing site Smashwords has created a new feature to help connect authors and readers  called Smashwords Alerts.

Essentially readers can sign up to get alerts if their favorite authors have a new work available. Readers who previously “favorited” an author on the site will get updates from the writers. Here is more from the Smashwords blog:

To track an author, readers simply visit any author profile page at Smashwords and click the button labeled, “Subscribe to Author Alerts.”  When the author releases a new book, readers will receive an alert.

Readers can manage subscriptions here.
