My First Self-Published Ebook...get it free!
« on: August 07, 2012, 06:38:16 AM »
Well, I done it, dagnabbit.

I created an eBook on Smashwords.

Inspired by my indie friends, I created an eBook containing a selection of previously published short stories and made a fancy cover on it...and I hope you'll pick up a copy.

There is a coupon for a free copy on my blog http://ash-krafton.blogspot.com/2012/08/a-present-for-my-blog-subscribers.html that you can use on Smashwords...or, you can wait a little while and wait until the retailers start distribution. (The coupon is only good for Smashies, though.)

Hope to hear some feedback from you indie pubbing pros here...how did I do?

 cheers!

Way to go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:  I'll definitely check it out.

BTW, you're lucky you gave up DAYS a while back. They're off the air for the two weeks of Olympics and I'm going thru withdrawal.  :no:

It's not pretty. Then again, more time to write... :up:

As in, "Like sands through the hourglass, these are the Days of Our Lives..." 

??? 

Love your cover. 
Did you create that yourself? 
If so, how?  Do they give you access to graphics? 

Sorry if these questions are dumb.   :huh:

I did the cover myself.  :)

The photograph is my own...this crazy door is in the next town over and it has fascinated me since the day I first saw it. I shot it on my phone and cropped/filtered it using a free photo app. Then I plugged it into Photoshop and ... Well, you see it.

I had first looked at free photo sites but the licensing language is a little confusing...you can use the photos on blogs but nothing you want to sell, I think. So, I did my own so I wouldn't have to worry a out lawsuits.
