I'm a 40 something amateur writer with a half dozen original stories and collections available at Amazon… and Smashwords… and entirely too much fanfic based on Peta Hewitt's Terinu webcomic.

FYI Llama badges shall be ignored.

Current Residence: Columbia, MD
deviantWEAR sizing preference: Large
Favourite genre of music: Rock & Roll
Operating System: Windows XL
MP3 player of choice: Phillips
Skin of choice: The one keeping all my organs inside my body
Personal Quote: "Do we have any idea what to do for dinner?"
Summary: Either a very meh month or a very good month, depending very highly on the Kindle Lending Library. Apparently it's enough of a thing now that it's comprising half my sales, but I don't know how much I'll be getting out of it until I get my next payment. There's a fair argument that the thing to do is write a lot of 99 cent stories rather than longer, more expesive works to maximise the payments from Amazon, at least until they change things to keep people from gaming the system.

In other news, David Dorse now has the audiobook copy of CotRV, so he'll be getting to work on that shortly.

Things to Do: Must write many short stories. I suspect serials are going to be become very popular on KDP soon. Also need to get ready to hand out patron rewards from my Kickstarter thing.

I was wondering how you publish your stories.

I have a novella I wrote for NaNoWriMo (not here, but rough draft on my FA).

It's dirt simple if you go through Amazon's Kindle Direct Program. Once you create a profile generally all you need is a well edited draft in Word format, and some cover art. The cover art is generally what causes me the most trouble.

Another publishing alternative I use is Smashwords, but their sales reach isn't as great as Amazon's, and the formatting required to publish is much more finicky.

That's okay, the little LED ones the Groupmind provided just aren't the same...
