My book Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain is up for pre-order (available worldwide, that's just the UK link) and will be released Monday 24 July 2017!

(so I'd better finish it by then, hey)

Here's the art, by the wondrous Alli Kirkham:

Back cover to follow, when I work out the paperback dimensions and aspect ratio ...

I've just posted a new excerpt, ICOs: Magic Beans and Bubble Machines, in case you ever wanted to know what on earth ICOs were and how they worked.

TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

Is it going to be available in non-Amazon form?
Also, your links are borked. The link to preorder goes to your webpage, while the link to the new excerpt goes to Amazon.

Rather than Smashwords, I'd use Draft2Digital, for some of the reasons Kris Rusch talks about in http://kriswrites.com/2016/09/21/business-musings-good-things/ . I've done my last couple of books through them, and plan at some point to pull my Smashwords ones and re-upload them there.

Yeah, I was the one who recommended Smashwords to him ;)
Five years ago, Smashwords was the best possible option for self-publishing ebooks to non-Amazon stores. However, it hasn't updated anything in about a decade, and Draft2Digital is better on every level.
(In particular, Draft2Digital lets you fill out the US tax stuff online if you're not in the US, and pays you monthly. Smashwords requires endless fuckery with actual paper tax forms for non-US residents, and pays quarterly in arrears)

You can get paid monthly via Smashwords - I think you just have to pick PayPal.

What Draft2Digital, at a glance, visibly lacks is its own storefront. Smashwords is also hella useful because you can use its couponing system to give away freebies or run sales, and because your book is instantly available on its store, instead of taking a bit to propagate to all the stores.
