My second novel in the Scott Tucker series was just published. After much consideration I decided to publish using Amazon's KDP process. I thought I would have some issues formatting my manuscript into the Kindle format, but it went rather smoothly.
Hopefully this link will show you what the novel is about - Scent of Gardenia
Congratulations! I'm going the same way with "The Boss of Hampton Beach." I want paper too so I've been advised to first format & put up on Create Space & once in paper form they will format & put on Kindle for $69. Does this make sense? How was the formatting process? I'm pretty sure I'll have to hire a formatter; I have little patience.
By the way, my hometown is Woburn, MA and I now live in Danvers.
