Publishing on Kindle

I published my anthology of computer stories on Amazon Kindle this morning. It is 173 pages long and there are 16 short stories. It was remarkably easy.

I formatted the stories using word and a 6×9 template that I downloaded from a website. I went to a free font site and got some snazzy science fiction fonts for the headings and the title.

It took me 4 days to re-read and edit all the stories and then format them in MS word.

I have Adobe Pro that can create PDF files, so I used that to create the PDF.

I then went to and filled out the forms and uploaded my book.

The book is under review, now.

I had an urge to sell it cheap – there is a 99¢ option, but, counter to what you may think, pricing a book high on Amazon does not hurt your sales, and may enhance them. I chose $8.97 because it is less than the max $9.99, and it sounds a little like the book is on sale.

I will put a link all over my pages when it through the review process.

I am working on Amazon’s CreateSpace to have hard copies of the book, but I am stuck on the cover. I need an afternoon so I can put together my art ideas. Then, watch out, all of my friends will be getting my book for Christmas instead of a bottle of wine.

I am now starting to collect all of my weird tales in a word document to see if I have enough to do another anthology. Then I’ll put all of my Space Opera together.


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
