I finally knocked one off the bucket list and published my novel to Amazon Kindle! After having issues with what would have been my editor I said screw it and just did it all myself.

 

It's about a oddball group of performers and their daily life shenanigans as they go to a performers convention. One of the characters is dealing with an eating disorder but it's not the main plots of the book.

 

If anyone wants to check it out it can be purchased here:

 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B098895F98

 

I can't believe I did it!

Congrats! I just finished writing my memoir and self publishing is an Avenue I’m considering but I’m not sure yet. Good on you!

Well done, that's truly amazing.
Could you tell me how you did it???
I've been writing children's stories (for ages 4-8) since I was 15 and would love to publish them, I'm also currently writing a historical fiction book (servants, lords, ladies etc)

I made a profile on kdp.amazon.com and just followed the tutorial, I used their art for a book cover and whipped up a summary.

I say go for it, it's super easy! I'm not sure how it would work for children's books with illustrations though, you'd have to play with the editing tool

Does it cost money?

Nope they take a fee from your royalties when you start selling.
