FINALLY! MY NEW BOOK!
After 10 drafts and the invention of incredible swear words aimed at Windows 10, HP Laptops, and Microsoft Word (that I paid for but still had intrusive ads to dodge) I uploaded my 10th poetry book. If you follow me, you have probably read all the poems for free on FB, GR, TW and WP but in case you are interested, here is the link for the Kindle edition. The paperback will need a lot of formatting and that will probably entail another 10 drafts
Here’s the link to my new paperback. This book has been a Kindle-only edition since January but I was finally able to publish it in paper. The cost is $5.50 but all of these poems are on Facebook and WordPress so if you follow me, you’ve probably read them 🙂
Hey all, after much suffering the paperback version of my Plastic Lawn Flamingos and Other Poems is now available on Amazon for $5. The kindle version is nice, with lots of color illustrations, but this one has B&W ones. Still, to me, this is like my diary of a particular time. You’ve probably read all my poems anyway on FB and WP. The link is below.
For those of you who self-publish on Amazon, I used their new Beta program that is part of Kindle, rather than Create Space. The interior was much easier to do, but I really dislike my cover. Unfortunately, my phone did not take pictures higher than 1440 resolution and Kindle wants 300 dpi. Mine was much lower so I was limited in what I could use as a cover image. Also, I couldn’t understand a graphics program even if I was teetering on the top of the Rocky Mountains. I’m sure, if you are PhotoShop-savvy, you could figure it out 😀
Here’s my newest kindle book, Plastic Lawn Flamingos & Other Poems. 99 cents (although you’ve probably read all the poems on Facebook or WordPress 🙂 )
Just published a Kindle version of my newest poetry book. They are all the poems I’ve posted on FB and WordPress since July 2016. Will do a paperback on Create Space soon.
For those of you who publish on Kindle, it has changed for the better. I was actually able to do the cover in less than 5 minutes after uploading my own photo. Free. They also have a new program where the Kindle can be used as the paperback (instead of using Create Space) but it is still in the Beta stage and I’m not sure if I want to use it at this time since it seemed like Bowker was the only place to get an ISBN.
Anyway, although I fixed some run-on problems (one poem running into another on some of the pages), it seems I can’t get it straightened out. I think there are minor glitches on Kindle but hey, it’s free to publish, and I’m so grateful to Amazon for this opportunity!
Gotta get away from my computer today…
Here’s a link to the Kindle edition of my new poetry book. They are all my poems in the last year that I have posted on FB & WordPress. The paperback edition will be ready in about a week. Check out the incredible cover that my friend Karen Stephanie Bruton did for this book. She does all my covers and her talent (and patience with my hysteria that comes every time I publish) has become legendary!
Been off of WordPress for a few days but hope to be back and read all your great blogs and poetry 🙂
NEW POETRY BOOK ON KINDLE
(Just my music-related poetry that appears on this site, but the kindle version is 99 cents. Will do a print edition soon. So hyper whenever I publish a book!)
