    So, according to this blog entry you can freely publish your own books on the Amazon Kindle. You only get 35% of the sale price of the book but how awesome is that?

    :confused2  I think I am going to publish a book on the story of my life. "I go to class. I come home. I read the TF forums. I CUP. I don't know why I find that so funny. I clean up horse crap."


    Wait a min, Twin Twist, why does that girl in your sig only have one boob?

    Wrong answer! :lol 

    I think it's the pattern on her shirt that makes her look like she has one boob.

    About the OP:

    Interesting. But not the best timing ... what, with National Novel Writing Month just now ending. A flood of likely poorly edited work, some of which may be quite good even then (I certainly make no judgments), will not do Amazon any favors.
