Girls On Fire: I have ventured into the art of publishing on Amazon KDP with short stories: Lawd!

14 Jan

Though I still am publishing my novels through Bellebooks/Bell Bridge books, I wanted to branch out and try out self-publishing on Amazon’s KDP program. And, the best way to do that for me is with my short stories.

These are very short stories and the blurby thang on Amazon will be: “On your lunch hour? Sitting in a waiting room? Need just one little story before you go to sleep? Then download one of Kathryn Magendie’s very short stories, between 3,000 and 6,000 words. ”

So, the very first short story, at about 4600 words, is up, live, on sale! Girls On Fire – and I’m nervous and excited and pleased with how easy it is to do, and of course that’s the terrifying part of it, as well. Lawd! I hope you will consider short story reading to your kindles *smiling warmly at y’all*

I splurged a little on the artwork – choosing the same artist for a series of short stories I’ll publish: Katarzyna Bruniewska-gierczak. These watercolors are beautiful and compelling.

    Wowowow! on the covers. I love the artwork. I am not even gonna try to pronounce the artists’s name – Wha? I think Vanna needs to buy her a vowel. :)
    Good for you, Kat!

    The covers are wonderful! I don’t have a Kindle … might need to get one, even though I already have a B&N Nook.
