First steps – frustrating, but signs of future success February 5, 2012

After a fair ammount of frustration, I’ve finally taken a few steps toward understanding the most basic of steps of publishing an e-book for the Kindle Fire. Both were existing scripts and both were different genre.

The first, a short story, was nearly successful the initial time through. Minor changes – spacing between lines and paragraphs most notably – were made to the format imported from my word processor. The output, acceptable to my eye, was shared with friends and colleagues.

The second, a ten-page stage play was neither a direct or immediate success. The format, standard page layout for engaging a cast and crew, did not do well for reading electronically. Although not yet successful, a lesson was learned: different forms on respective printed pages seem to require different characteristics for the Kindle Fire and, presumably, other e-books.

Let the lessons continue.
