I wonder what this means for authors who have the same books on smash words and Scribd and what part of sales that smash words an Scribd keep. I'm also wondering how their automated system will be able to know that I am the author of pieces that they import from smash words and delete from Scribd. I am waiting and seeing who this deal benefits.
