The Kindle Advantage and Disadvantage
I've become a fan of Kindle Direct Publishing. One of its features is a constant updating of what books have sold. Last month How to Write Your Novel in Nine Weeks was my top one (of six books) but so far this month it's been My Great-grandfather Turns 12 Today.
A disadvantage of self-publishing is it's all you. It isn't just the writing and editing. It's the cover and protional description and, truth be told, figuring out how to actually get your book up there. It took me more than a few tries to figure out how to get the cover art to show up. I took a lot of specific notes after my first success. If you're having trouble with that, just drop me a line.
