Reading A Kindle Book Without A Kindle

Today I made my first Kindle book purchase from Amazon. I always thought one needed a Kindle to buy books in this way, but after doing a bit of research this morning, I was able to download a book straight to my MacBook.

Intrigued by a post written by Suzanne Anderson who comments at GOTJ from time to time, I went in search of her book, Mrs. Tuesday’s Departure which she talked about over at her place today.  She recently decided that self-publishing by way of Kindle was the quickest way to get her book in front of readers. It is an interesting possibility for many writers and one I had not considered until today.

I plan on doing some more of my own research, but I may be a bit slow in getting back to it as I will be busy reading Suzanne’s new book.

Big congrats to Suzanne and good luck on this new adventure. She will be talking more about self-publishing in the days to come and you can follow her discovery and progress here.

  1. OMG Elizabeth! Thank you! that means so much to me! I will be posting more articles this week about the whole process of self-publishing. It’s been quite an adventure and there are a lot of resources out there. I’m really looking forward to learning more about the marketing side of it.

  2. I think Suzanne has achieved so much with this book. It wasn’t a case of ‘slow and steady wins the race’, but ‘steady as she goes, wins the race’ many of us say, “Oh, I’d love to write abook one day,” but that’s as far as it ever gets? Suzanne sat down and wrote and wrote and wrote…and here she is, a published book out there in the public domain.

    And she is a bit of a fiend for cooking as well 🙂

    • I am reading her book now and really enjoying it. I’m about a six chapters in and it’s very visual which is always a good indicator of a story that works for me. Plus … that shrimp recipe she posted rocks. I’ve made it twice already with great results.
