Smashwords announced in a blog post that it has launched a new feature, Smashwords Alerts, that automatically notifies readers of new releases from their favorite authors.
Starting today, readers who have previously “favorited” authors on Smashwords’s platform will receive notifications of new releases.
Tracking an author is fairly simple: readers go to an author’s profile page and click the “Subscribe to Author Alerts” button.
Smashwords currently works with more than 120,000 authors and independent presses, and publishes and distributes more than 400,000 ebooks.
