Self Publish for FREE

You read the title right.  You can self publish for Free.  www.amazon.com has made it simple and easy.  All it takes from you is determantion.  It is not hard.  It is not high tech.

I publish a short story every month.  www.amazon.com/author/sharonleejohnson

I have paid for my book covers.  I have also used the kindle cover converter.  Cover cost me nothing.
www.amazon.com/dp/B00GYTBQ7M

I learned to format my files.  It is easier than you think.  Amazon has a book on how to format your files. and the book is FREE .

Beware of websites who offer to do the services for a fee.  You can do it on your own. 

Go to www.kdp.amazon.com browse the website and see what they have to offer.  All my e-books are published on amazon.

Something else to remember.  An E-Book does not have to be 50,000 words or 100,000 words.  It can be a few at 5,000 words. 

You can write a 5,000 word short story, create a cover from the kindle website, format the file and upload the file.  FREE

I do this once a month.

It did take me awhile to learn to format, but once I jumped that hurdle, nothing is stopping me now. 

What are you waiting for?

Some people might talk you out of doing this.  Some people might call this a hobby.  Don't listen to anyone who is negative.  This is your dream.  This is for you.

Have any questions???  Ask.  I will do my best to help you. I am doing this blog to help others see their dream become a reality.

Just Write!

Want to be a Published Author?

1.  Write.

If you don't write, you will never get published.  I know that may sound simple.  I know you have heard that before.  It is the only thing you need to get publish.  You need a story to publish.

I had a hard time writing 100 words a day.  I then started writing everyday, even if it was one word or one sentence or 1,000 words.  I discovered the more I wrote, the easier it was to write.  Like anything else, it takes practice.

I now write everyday.  In longhand or on the computer.  I write wherever or whenever.  In the car, waiting for a doctor appointment, at work, on my breaks.  I carry a notebook everywhere I go. 

My goal was to be a published writer and that is what I am.  That is what I am doing.  So can you.  What is stopping you from seeing your dream become a reality?  It is you.  You are the only one stopping you.

Amazon has made it simple and easy to get publish.  www.kdp.amazon.com   Look around their website and see what it is all about. 

Yes, it will take some time.

Yes, you will have to learn something new.

Yes you can do it.
