Just a forewarning... I'm going to unpublish my novels from the smashwords catalogue on Monday 9th Jan '12. This means my books will no longer be available on ebook stores such as Barnes & Noble etc that smashwords distribute to. There are a number of reasons why I'm no longer publishing through smashwords, the biggest being the piracy issues. I'm considering having my own ebook store where readers can download epubs of my novels for their nook but until then my books will only be available through kindle. I know it's a pain in the behind but until Barnes & Noble change their policy and allow non-US residents to publish through pubIt! I won't have my ebooks available in epub (unless you're a reviewer).
I'm giving the heads up over the weekend and would really appreciate you guys spreading the word so that readers who have downloaded books 1 and 2 in a series can download book 3 while it's still available in epub - I'm thinking of those folks who have been reading Warriors of Ankh in particular because book 3 has just come out.... so if you have a Nook and you've been waiting on Shades of Blood to hit BN you can download it now for Nook in epub from Smashwords instead - http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/111333
The situation isn't ideal, I know, and I'm hoping to have a system all in place by the end of April. In the meantime the books are of course available for kindle (and remember, you don't need a kindle device to download and read kindle books... you can download onto your computer).
So... they'll be unpublished from Monday 9th Jan.
