Kindle Stuff

Hey Everyone,

I made a great find last night. Ok, actually it was at about 3AM on Sunday morning, but the point is that, as some of you know, I have been working on putting Henry Wood into Kindle form. I wrote tonight's blog about the PC and Apple versions of the Kindle reader.

There are lots and lots of talented people here on Lumber Jocks. I am sure that some of you have thought about compiling your blog posts into a book, and the more I learn about it, the more excited I get. The one problem I see is that there are lots of people who don't have a Kindle. So now it is possible for anyone with a computer to get a reader and download books.

I know that many people here like reading, or you wouldn't be here, because there are lots of words. So if you want to play with the Kindle on your computer, feel free to check out my blog today. Or if you prefer, I will just give you the links to the site, so you can download your own Kindle reader.

2) Kindle for PC: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=kcp_pc_mkt_lnd?docId=1000426311
3) Kindle for Apple: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&ref_=amb_link_272409822_2&docId=1000464931

Ok, I am off to see if there are any good books on woodworking. If not, well I am sure we can write some. :)

Brian,

I am an avid Kindle user but am also a book publisher so I am always learning new things about the publishing business. I had been considering publishing to Kindle format when I ran into Smashwords. I know, the name may scare you off but it is an excellent publishing tool that you might consider for your purposes. It allows you to publish a book in one format and then they convert it to multiple formats, including Kindle, making your book available to most users even as a pdf for their computer. You might want to check it out.

I have done a terrible job...

Hello All,

I have been writing a lot, but have done a terrible job of updating LJ. I haven't done much on woodworking though, so I haven't been around. The Henry Wood is coming along, in fact, I just posted chapter 64. So that means there are about 19 more chapters, if you haven't been checking my site daily. I believe the last one was 45.

I think most people from LJ who have been reading Henry Wood, do stop in daily, so I haven't felt like clogging up the blog posts with my daily links.

I do appreciate everyone's support and encouragement, as it has made writing fun. The novel is nearly done and when it is, I will do a rewrite and polish it up a bit. I have also decided to rewrite the 1st Henry Wood, add another 18K words, fill it out some, and get move it from novella to novel.

Thanks again for reading my drivel,

Brian
