First, I want to thank all the people who answered some questions I had involving Kindle Direct and self-publishing as a whole. I've thought about it, and I have a novella sitting on my desktop that's collecting dust and I've decided I wanted to share it with people. As a writer, my main goal is to get people to read what I write, so I feel that this will at least help develop a platform of sorts. I'm still planning on doing the traditional publishing route as well (waiting to hear back from agents) but this particular story of mine was created out of a more personal place, so I feel people can connect with it more,


I'm not sure when, but I'm shooting for it to be available by the end of next month.


So how about you guys? Got any eBooks or kindle direct releases?

Through trials comes triumph.

Sounds good. But don't forget the marketing. That's often the hardest part and the element that many of us -- most, perhaps -- don't do enough of to capture attention. And it's an ongoing thing.
