Audrey Driscoll This is my first post to the group, so bear with my blunders.
Has anyone paid attention to the book categories (e.g. Fiction -- Thriller -- Action and adventure) their Smashwords books have at the various retailer sites, but specifically B&N? Many books get only one category at B&N, even if they have 2 on Smashwords. But not all. Some Smashwords books appear in 3 or more categories. My questions to Smashwords support about this weren't really answered; they just say "You get only one category." BTW, I notice that D2D books seem consistently to get several categories at B&N. This is an important matter for findability, so I'm wondering if anyone else has dealt with it.

J.A. Marlow (jamarlow) | 7 comments I switched one of my books to D2D so far and I've noticed the same thing. Better categories, and it seems to populate over better. The book appears to be getting better visibility. I plan to switch a few more over in the future. We'll see if that was a one-time thing, or if it's consistent.
