I just wanted to let you all know that THE LADY'S FATE, is now available on Smashwords.
If I've learned nothing else from this experience of self-publishing it's how to format for every single type of e-reader available. With the time change, I was up at the ungodly hour of 4 am, and with nothing to do, I decided to try and upload to Smashwords. Which I did, but it kept bouncing back to me saying that my file was too big. So I had to "strip it". Which means, I had to take out ALL the formatting.
ALL the formatting. And then reformat the entire document. It took me all day Sunday. 4 am to 4 pm. I kid you not. 12 hours. I had to learn a bunch of new techniques and then re-upload the document. But by 6 pm it was "pending" with no glitches. So I was a happy girl when I went to bed last night.
Hah! And I though the learning curve for the Kindle was hard. That was a cake walk compared to yesterday.
But now I know how to do it. And yes, I am very proud of myself. I never, ever thought in a zillion years, that I would ever know how to do things with a computer that would end up becoming a book. A published book at that.
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
