YOU HAVE TO GIVE YOUR READERS WHAT THEY WANT

YOU HAVE TO GIVE YOUR READERS WHAT THEY WANT

After an exhausting 2-hour phone call with KDP this afternoon I finally managed to submit Coffee-Drunk or Blind for the Kindle edition! You can find it here. You have to give the readers what they want and everyone wants an e-book.

With my first book, Crossing The Line, the Kindle publishing was easy-peasy – if I’m remembering correctly. I just uploaded the files, hit submit, and Ziiip-Ziiiip…it was a done deal.

Now CDB was a whole different story. The cover didn’t want to upload. The interior file didn’t want to accept my pictures – yes! there are pictures in this book! – and the technology to get this all done was waaaaaaaay above my head. Arrg!

The guys over at KDP were very patient with this technology-impaired person. Believe me though, if it ever has to be done again, I’ll need more help. My brain did not retain all that changing of formats, saving to desktop, and zipping files.

If you are ready for a feel-good book, or just want to take a peek into five years of someone’s life, here’s a book for you. One of my earlier readers said it was like reading the pages of a diary. I will say, it made my kids cry. They were good tears though and now they have all those memories, and even some pictures, in writing to share with their children.

To be honest with you, this is one of those books that say, “Pick me up…touch me…smell me…read me.”

It’s my new coffee table book. So if you feel the same way I do about some physical books, you can find the print version here.

Don’t forget to leave your review on Amazon when you’ve finished reading. Thanks for all your support!
