  1. Hi Debby,
    As you know, I am interested in publishing a book this year. I had heard good things about the Amazon Kindle program. I will be sure to keep your post to review when the time comes. Lately there have been criticisms about the program. Thanks to you and your guest author for the heads up.


    1. Hi Janice. I’d highly recommend publishing with Amazon. As you know, there will always be criticism for one thing or another. It’s a matter of learning the ins and outs and what part of the program is best suited to your needs. Amazon is the best platform for all new Indie publishers. 🙂


  2. Very helpful – once again!

    Incidentally, I am not receiving email notifications from blogs I subscribe to so have contacted WP about the problem. They said problem would be addressed in 24-72 hours. We’ll see! ;-/


  3. Very interesting article. I’m glad that Kindle is taking steps to ensure that self-publishing books are in good shape before publishing. Although I still recommend that everyone publishing a book use a professional editor. Thanks for sharing! 😀 xx
