Selling in Kindle format on Amazon.com

I was amazed how easy it is to sell my books through Amazon. They have a very easy to understand help page and you can have your books uploaded very quickly. First you have to create an account…go here Kindle Direct Publishing.

The most time consuming part was learning how to format my books for digital publishing, but once again, Amazon’s help page was very easy to follow. I downloaded (free) the Mobipocket ebook creator and followed the directions from Amazon. It only took me about 30 minutes to convert my print manuscript to digital format. The key thing to remember is that you need to add Page Breaks…just hitting the Enter key isn’t going to cut it.

If you need any help, give me a shout!

Here are my new Kindle books:

$2.99The Caver King $2.99

$4.99Rock of Ages $4.99

$2.99God’s To Do List $2.99

About Karen Y. Hamilton

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.
