Smashwords.com

Seeing as Amazon Kindle aren't really cutting the mustard, I've added the three books of "The Eternal Watchtower" Trilogy to Smashwords.com. The real advantage to this site over Amazon is that the conversion process from print layout to electronic layout of the book content is precise (Once you've got to grips with the specific formatting niceties!)... they tell you where you've screwed up on the formatting, and allow you to resubmit when corrected, without any of Amazon's annoyances.
They provide an in-depth, downloadable PDF formatting and style guide which is a damn sight better that Amazon's "Upload it and see what happens" system. The conversion system also generates a comprehensive selection of reader formats (Nine different... not just .mobi for Kindle,) which obviously means a wider market.
They also provide a free ISBN, and distribute  to the Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Sony Reader Store, Kobo and the Diesel eBook Store.

We'll see how it goes!
