Birth of an E-book

Buy me for a dollar!

After repeated failure to upload the comic book version of "The Monkey and the Ghost Ship" to the Amazon/Kindle store, I backed up one technical level and e-published the storybook from whence it spewed. As it turns out, Kindle Direct Publishing is much more tolerant of text files than of graphics. Still, I managed to include a cover (above) and a few illustrations.

With minimal effort, the book can be read on almost any device. I do not own a Kindle, but I downloaded the Kindle App to my iPhone and can now reap colossal rewards. Another cool bonus is that you can get quite a few classic books for free—I got "The Three Musketeers" and "The Mysterious Stranger," even though I prefer not to read on a tiny screen. Good backup entertainment for when I get stuck in waiting rooms or fall down a well.

No reviews yet—I gave the book file away to most of the people who would ever have bothered to review it, and I'm not sure if the site will take reviews from people who have not bought it.
