This may seem like a rant, but I am disappointed with Smashwords’ vetting process and have closed my account. When I uploaded revised files and covers to update the books on the premium catalog, I suddenly started getting “modification” requests to comply with whatever their guidelines are. They talked about formatting having been corrupted, the font size being “incorrect” for the Normal designation in my files, and other issues which I could not see. Yet, when I examined my files for the “corruption” they discussed I found nothing wrong. Also, since I did not put a link on any chapter 1 in the ToC, they told me I had to put a link there even if chapter 1 is the first item in the file after the ToC. I checked these files several times before I simply gave up on them.
