I figured out the way to get books published on Amazon for that reason. [to get the fear/frustration out of not understanding the process out of the way, and also to try to give bragging rights to older family members. Worked for some, not for others]
The ones it didn’t work for? It was the wrong kind of books and I’m not promoting them properly. [in short, they saw through my guise].
Give me something and you can be my co-author, or i’ll be the publisher and you the sole author (if that’s possible with the Amazon setup – I don’t know – I’m sure I can remember the process of getting it up there; I just had to run it through a few programs to get it to work in the Kindle format.
Maybe you can just collect everything you wrote on G+ for example, one per page or something. I did that for my 2nd book, that took me 45 minutes to collect the information and shove it up there. The first one took 1.5 hrs. [I was trying for speed]
