A is for Amazon
Without Amazon, my book idea would be just that: an idea.
April 1, 2014: I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge again this year, this is the first entry.
I had an entirely different post planned out, all about how Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing helped me create this book and all that (and I will post that information and process in more detail later on), but it’s 9:30 PM, I just got home from a class, my kids should be asleep, well, I guess it is spring break, but my 10-year old came down and showed me the illustration he’s been working on for the book.
He finally has the bug to get him to follow through on what he said he wanted to do since we started this book project: be the illustrator. I think he just liked the title. In fact, he’s even listed in the credits as the illustrator, but, ahem, the book doesn’t actually have any illustrations.
Now that the book was published today and we showed him how it appeared in the Amazon store and all that, I think he now believes. He came downstairs with his drawing of the three tunnels (from chapter 8), and he was so excited to get it into the book.
This KDP is turning into something larger than I … believed.
