Hokay Team -
It looks like Kindle is the way to go with this self-publishing thing. I just downloaded the freeware - you can do it too; that way you can read the novel as I crank it out, chapter by chapter.
The entire project is starting to come together and I might actually post the first chapter this weekend - "God willing and the river don't rise."
A question I fired out to my cabal of writer friends & family (I come from a family of writers): "Should I write my novel in the 1st person or 3d person? Conrad wrote Heart of Darkness in the 1st person; MacLean wrote Where Eagles Dare in the 3d person- which is best for my work?"
More details to follow as I get my head around the techie side of this project.
Thanks all of you for all of your support -
