Always keen to show that I am at the forefront of technology ;-), a little while ago I thought I would try my hand at an ebook. Writing it took a bit of time, but ebooks can be any length, so my book is quite short - only 16,000 words. The actual process of publishing it on Amazon was amazingly easy - it took about 30 minutes and was very simple. Now my book on Kafka - a short, hopefully readable, fun and interesting take on his work - is on amazon and available across the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B014PHZT8Q It's not really a money-making venture, so I priced the ebook at 99p! What's more I did an initial free period, so today it is free if anyone is interested and wants to download it. So if anyone ever wanted to have a go at writing something, I can definitely recommend it. As long as you have got something to say, getting it out there is really easy!!
