As a side note, that soft thud you hear in the background? That's just me banging my head softly against my keyboard in frustration. Pay it no attention to it and perhaps it'll go away.
First uploaded Pole Dance to Kindle after finding out that Smashwords doesn't support adding your book to Kindle. Really? Uhm, you're kidding, right?
No, they most seriously are NOT. But (and here's the kicker...wait for it...) you have to not only load your book separately, but it has completely different formatting than Smashwords. *insert dull thuds, here*
So I looked and searched, played and prayed until I finally, FINALLY found Amy McDaniel's Kindle Formatting Formula who saved me. Can't, seriously, can not thank her and her inexpensive e-book enough for giving me step by step instructions on how to do this sh...uhm...stuff on my own.
That was only the first portion of my frustration but, then again, I'm a girlie-girl so we don't just bang our heads against the keyboard for one measly thing. The second layer was over Dex and Leila's story. Honest to goodness, if I'd had a way to get my hands around Dex's neck, I would've strangled him. Let me phrase this right.
This. Story. Consumed. Me.
Every waking moment, and even a few dream moments as well, had me in the clutches of Dex and his mind consciousness stream that made me want to lose my ever loving mind. Dex didn't care about plot, story structure, char development or scenes. He couldn't care less about word choice, verb choice and freaking forget point of view. All the man seemed to know was that I was supposed to do some kind of transcription regarding the story of him and Leila.
Got the last bits of the story tonight...or as I glance at the clock, this morning.
Hope to be uploading both new Pole Dance and Hieroglyphix/Book one to Amazon first thing tomorrow.
That is, if the dull echoing thud doesn't keep me awake.
And I thought, but please PLEASE don't remind me of this later, that writing would be fun.
