Kris Austin, the CEO of Draft2Digital, discusses D2D's recent acquisition of Smashwords. We discuss the companies' similar philosophies, and how the combination of their different strengths will create better tools for indy authors. We discuss Smashwords’ authors biggest concerns—regarding money and the Meatgrinder—and how the path forward will address those concerns. And we discuss what steps authors don’t need to take to prepare for the transition. Kris also provides an update on the D2D Print beta, including the last piece of functionality he wants to finalize before a full rollout, and a comparison of how D2D Print compares with IngramSpark, now and into the future.
