Publishing Contract signed - Novella Published & Now Available on Kindle!

A few weeks ago I signed a publishing contract for a contemporary romance, which I'm delighted about, but it won't be published until July 2012. 

In the meantime I've celebrated with "Her Favoured Captain" a historical novella, now available as a Kindle e-book.  

It took a while to get around to posting this historical novella to Amazon but it's there now!

The problem lay with the book trailer: getting it to function as best I could and with the music helping to set the scenes. I never thought book trailers would be seen as so important for e-books. But, I guess all the stops have to be pulled in utilisation of every marketing tool available, especially for something that sits within a virtual book store.

I'm one of those people that's willing to give anything a try, see bottom of post for end result.

Also, formatting for Kindle is no picnic. I'd class Kindle formatting nothing less than a hair-pulling experience. Nevertheless, I cracked it to what I think is as good as perfection given that Kindle automatically (annoyingly) indented first line of first paragraph to every darn chapter. 

Anyhoo, the link to "Her Favoured Captain" at Amazon: see top left side-bar.
