I Uploaded My E-book to Amazon Kindle This Morning!

Have you been wanting to add an ebook to Amazon so you can tap into the Kindle market to create an additional income stream that will generate additional cash flow?

OK, I have delayed uploading my 90 page ebook manuscript to Amazon Kindle, but finally decided to give it a try this morning. If you have ever tried to upload your ebook to Amazon, or other ebook sales site such as Smashwords or Create Space,  you know there can be frustrating formatting requirements and issues. Like CreateSpace and Smashwords, Amazon also had its own unique manuscript format requires. It was a bit of a nightmare for a while. I spent hours formatting my manuscript to get it just right for acceptance to each site. But now, at last, Amazon has gotten around those problems! Amazon no longer requires specific formatting exclusively but accepts a variety of manuscript formats! I uploaded my ebook, The Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions, this morning in less than 15 minutes! My ebook will be available to buyers in 12-24 hours.
