Is Amazon Going To Allow You To Publish 'A Series?'

I was attempting to see where Amazon is hiding our Vella material, so I looked over in my KDP directory to see if they had tucked it into my list of books. Nope, it's not there, BUT... I saw this: Create a series: Click the link on the left to enter details for a new series. Learn more. Now I know... Sign in to see full entry.

Vella Project

I'm working on segments for my Vella project, an Amazon based platform, titled 'Dealing With Grief,' where I address the things I have learned in a lifetime as a paramedic and then an ER nurse. The purpose of this segment will be crystal clear to some people, but the rest of you can learn from this... Sign in to see full entry.

Vella Part Two

My hand is beginning to realize that the medicine is kicking in, and I was able to get the second chapter of 'Dealing With Grief' uploaded. I also forgot to tell you yesterday that they (Amazon) allow readers to read the first three segments/chapters of your new story at no cost to them. I... Sign in to see full entry.

More On Vella

Yeah, I should be in bed, but our big dog jumped into bed with me (his intention was to lay beside me 'lovely,') but he landed dead center on my bladder, and after that, I just hadda get up!

Vella - Part One

I am in the process of adding my first 'Vella' story. I think I named this series, 'Dealing With Grief.' I'll find out soon enough when I finish the first chapter. I am adding these things as I go, so they might sound a bit disjointed. The first thing they ask you to provide is your chosen pen name... Sign in to see full entry.

I almost put this in a response to Corbin, but decided it would get more 'eyes' by posting it here. I have always allowed people to borrow my books without paying for them, but I gets spit in return. If my normal 'profit' (after Amazon gets their 1.59) is $1.19, I will get 19 cents if someone reads... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't tell my wife, but I have to start paying more attention to my writing for a bit. I love the 'torrid' love affair that we have, but if the girl wants to make more money after she wears me out and I am gone, I need to get busy elsewhere. I have to finish an alarming number of projects that are... Sign in to see full entry.

Using A Pen Name

While I have never used a pen name since I started writing 'for a living,' I have used them before. As I posted on Twitter when my friend, Harmony Kent of Cornwall in the UK, posted this link, Interesting. I see this as my wife begins to contemplate the use of a pen name. Thank you, Harmony.

Something to think about. Three simple sentences, the basis of a new story: The accusation was false. The hatred was real. The consequences were terrifying, but there he was, in cuffs, waiting to be taken before a judge. Sign in to see full entry.

Besides the story that I have 'taken on' about the man in my neighborhood who broke the addiction to meth, I have found another man who spent eleven years in prison for dealing meth, grass, and illegally obtained Xanax and other medications. I've been 'interviewing' them both, and these have the... Sign in to see full entry.
