Smashwords.com introduced an e-book gift feature on Christmas Day. This means you can give Blackbirch Woods (and other Smashwords e-books) as a gift by clicking on the "Give as a gift" button at checkout... it will be sent to their e-mail address. The recipient need not have a Smashwords account.
I know, some of you are thinking, why not sell e-books through Amazon? While my book is available on Amazon as a paperback, they maintain propriety over their Kindle format and charge authors to make the book available as an e-book... whereas Smashwords provides the conversion service at no charge (I pay only a small service fee when the book is purchased) AND they provide the book in formats for ALL e-readers-- not just Kindle.
