The agreement includes two components. First, Smashwords will distribute its more than 11,000 Smashwords eBooks through the Diesel eBook Store beginning August 25th.
For the second part of the agreement, Smashwords will power the new Diesel Publishing Portal, where indie authors, and publishers with less than 100 published titles, can self publish their books to Diesel.
Books published through the new Diesel Publishing Platform are sold in Diesel, as well as other Smashwords retailer partners.
Authors and publishers who use Smashwords to publish their eBooks to the Diesel store will earn 60% of the retail price, which they can set themselves.
