31 days of five minutes Free Writing: Day 2: Excitement

31 Days logo - 2015


Friday five minute free write

I started writing Flash Fiction in January. After writing many of these short pieces I decided to try my hand at putting them together into an e-book. The construction and putting it together was not an easy task. At first I had to ask some Tim Bank friends to proofread the pieces. They helped me immensely. My english isn’t that good at times because it is not my home tongue.

I did a lot of reading on how to publish an e-book. The changing of font, spaces ,headings were all new things to me. Formatting the whole book was a big job. I even did my own cover.

Well, I am proud of myself.

My book went live on October 1 and I have already sold one copy .

  2. Jy moet die skakel van die boek in jou kantlyn plaas met ‘n foto dan sal mense makliker gaan kyk


    1. Sug, ja, sal nog daarby kom. Moet eers weer soektog doen om dit te doen. Omdat ek by “select” deel is gaan hul nie my prentjie wys nie omdat net Amazon die publikasiereg het op oomblik.

      1. Jy moet juis Amazon adverteer?

  4. Wow, congratulations! Is the link to your book on your blog anywhere so that people can see where to get a copy?


    1. Thank you. My previous post has the link. Here is the link http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0160P17VE


      1. Thank you! Have you considered making the book available on Kindle Unlimited? Then it would be free for people to download for people who have subscribed to KU, you’d still get some royalties, and more people might see/review it?


        1. I am still new! Kindle Unlimited is not available in NZ. How do I make it available on KU?


          1. I’m not sure, if KU isn’t available in NZ, will see what I can find out.


            1. Thanks a lot much appreciated!


              1. Hi, as far as I can see, if a book is entered in Kindle Select, that will also make it available for Kindle Unlimited. But I realise that Kindle Select wouldn’t be everyone’s choice as I believe it means you can only sell it via Amazon. Hope that helps. Kindle Select is a setting that you choose on your KDP dashboard when you upload or amend a previously uploaded book.


                1. Thanks for coming back to me again I really appreciate it. I also had a look and saw that under select it is free in the library for prime. I picked select and 35% royalty because it can go to most countries. It is also only 90 days and then I can change it.
