I’ve been working and studying and trying to figure out what they called “fixed image” formatting. This is to start putting books with illustrations on the Kindle.
So, I figured out one “path” through this issue, but there are more methods, and I’ve just got to find them and figure them out. Nothing about this computer stuff is easy! And as soon as you figure something out–the technology changes.
Anyway, I built a “test” book. I didn’t want to have an artist create illustrations, and then me screw up and not be able to accomplish the task.
So, here it is! My first children’s book.
It’s available on Kindle for 99 cents. I’m still figuring out this process. I gather that it’s only available on Kindle Fire and machines later than that. Most of my work, I test on an application called Kindle for PC. Well, for some resason, this wasn’t compatible with that, so I had to use the Kindle Cloud.
As I said–tech! Whew!
But, the writing was super fun. The verses make me grin all over.
All the writing is original. I love to do this. I could write children’s books all day long. And this whets my appetite to create art. I know that as soon as I try, I’ll get frustrated, and decide that it’s best to leave art to the real artists. But, anything that promotes creativity is a good thing.
AND…if anyone has any hints on how to further this process–(fixed image formatting), please let me know. I ended up using a template, and thank goodness for that. I couldn’t make any other softwares work, and all the forum suggestions and things are so far over my head. Thank you so much!
Have a lovely day!
