I Feel Like Such a Dummy!

Lately I've been reading about all these writers putting their older books (and some their brand new ones) on Kindle. I remember I book I have that might do well on Kindle.

I found the place, read the directions and couldn't make head or tail out of them. Must be my aging brain. I'd already found a cover artist so didn't want to back out yet. One of my e-mail friends who I actually met once offered her husband's expertise to convert the book. He did but told me I need to take out some tabs. How do you do that?

He gave me some other instructions and I began to get a headache. Sweet soul has offered to do it all for me. Of course I'm going to pay him for his work.

Wonder if I'll recoup what I put out to do this?

Now I know why I have two publishers for my mystery series.

Is there anyone else out there who gets stymied by all this stuff?

Marilyn Meredith aka F. M. Meredith

This one was free for awhile and is still for some Amazon customers. I'm afraid I don't understand any of this. I talked Oak Tree Press into trying this out and though there were a lot of free downloads it hasn't resulted in any wonderful sales for this book or any of the previous ones. Yes, I did do a lot promotion, but I guess I don't have the magic formula.


  1. How nice to have such options...proving you are no dummy, Marilyn! (PS: I'd be stymied, too).

  2. With all the books you kick out and all the promotion you do, you are far from a dummy!
