ScribD … good or bad?

ScribD has several listings of books on their site. People can upload content, anywhere from a few pages to entire novels.  I’ve noticed a few authors using it to upload a chapter or two of their latest work.  I decided to see if this marketing technique would work and uploaded the first 2 chapters of Moonlight Hero, Moonlight Protector, and Magnolia Magick to the ScribD database.  We’ll see if sales increase any from the extra exposure.  I made sure the files were available in PDF only and included links to sites where the full novel could be purchased.

In addition, it seems that Authors and Publishers can use the ScribD store to sell their books directly on ScribD, less 20% commission the site charges.  So if sales are slow and you’re looking for a new site to try, you might check them out.
