Does anyone have any experience publishing for kindle? If so, does anyone have thoughts on which format to use when transferring content? I've read Word is by and large the most popular choice however it appears I'm not as technologically inclined as I wish I were. All of the instructions I've read for it, appear complicated and frustrating to say the least.
Is there a third party site/program out there that might make this process easier ? If I were to pay someone to do it for me, who would I be calling ?
Also, any thoughts on pen names? It appears that many people find choosing differing pen names for each genre to be the wisest course of action. Why? Is using a male or female name going to effect the persons perception of the material that much ? I'm also wondering if it would be better to go with a more generic name opposed to anything off beat from the norm. I know this question is vague but any thoughts on pen names in addition to the uploading quandary I'm having would be very much appreciated!!
Any thoughts, insight, or sharing of experience you might have had can be posted right here . Thank you in advance! >.<
