Can I e-publish one short story as an entity? 5 pages with cover design?

Did you search under the e-publishing forum of this site for info. on that?

I have no idea, but I'll bet you can find your answers there.

Sure you can!

It's actually not a bad idea cuz it'll give you a chance (heh) to wrestle through the process without a great deal at stake.

I recommend you do it solely on Smashwords - they've got a very good how-to instructional program for formatting and all that.

It shouldn't cost you one dime, even if it does cost you a bit of sanity.Posted Image

Even if it's just something basic-- a picture with the title and your name-- it's to your benefit.

And they are phasing out allowing no covers (if I read their stuff correctly. I need a nap.)
