Kindle in Motion!

Kindle in Motion is a totally different format than Kindle A\V or Kindle with Audio\Video. Which makes me wonder if KM will fare better.

With little fanfare, Amazon introduced Kindle in Motion in the middle of 2016. Not sure how I missed this rollout, apparently I was lost in space. LOL

After reading a recent post about the new moving ebooks, I decided to do a little research. If you didn’t know, I love research. Hello, GoogleGoogle search Jean's Writing

As usual, I’ve provided more links at the end of this post for your reading pleasure. 

Size is important and the size of Kindle in Motion books range between 200-600mb. And apparently, there is a lot involved in producing a Kindle in Motion ebook other than formatting.

After watching this I saw dollar signs! Cha-ching, going out not coming in. I don’t know about you guys but this technique will most likely price me out of formatting my books with Kindle in Motion.Losing money, money flying away Bitmoji Jean M CogdellThe artwork, in and of itself, is expensive. But, animated artwork is downright prohibitive for most writers. Unless you’ve enjoyed the success of JK Rowling.

Food for thought. An author might cut costs by animating just the cover and not the entire book, but would the reader be disappointed?

Do you think these books are distracting or entertaining? 

Do you think Kindle in Motion will increase sales?

Or do you think the cost will be prohibitive for most writers?

Blog 2 Book in Minutes

Do you want to make a book?

Do you want to preserve your blogs?

highlighting modren communication thru a blogMaybe I’m slower than molasses, because I’m sure everyone and their dog already knows how to do this, but I’m still super stoked. Today I discovered a great website. Blog2print!

For $7.95 I downloaded my blog in a digital book format. Does it look professional and ready to sell on Amazon? No, but now I have this little eBook of all my posts and writings tucked away safe. I mean who knows anything could happen. My blog could get deleted or God forbid the internet could disintegrate.

Their website has several options for soft and hardback books for a little more. You can upload pictures to put on the covers and select which posts to keep.

Check it out, Blog2Print works for WordPress, Blogspot, Tumblr and Typepad. Let me know what you think.

Are you looking for beach books?

Have you made a summer reading list? If not, these three will get you started.

If you have, add these three to your list.

1 Literary, 1 Mystery and 1 YA there’s something for everyone.

I read for pleasure. The last couple of weeks have been pure bliss. Choosing a book, is like choosing a rich dessert. A dessert so yummy that my taste buds tingle and the flavor lingers long after the last bite. A good book is when the words or story stay with me long after I read the last page.

Even books I read for research, I choose with care. Enjoyment is my first priority. Life is too short. This morning I’m sitting on my porch, enjoy in a cool breeze and savoring the last of three books. Books that tingled my mind and left me with the realization I’ve a long way to go before I can stand in the shadow of these writers.

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Summer is here and I know many of you are looking for great books to read. So here they are, three books to keep you turning the pages, and savoring the phrases late into the night.

  • Alice I Have Been: A Novel by Melanie Benjamin, is on sale now for $1.99 (Kindle Edition) Grab this while you can it is normally $15.99

A love story and a literary mystery blending fact and fiction. I surprised myself, enjoying this book as I did. It’s not usually my type of book but the writing is beautiful. Ms. Benjamin captures the passionate spirit of a woman who was truly worthy of her fictional alter ego in a world as captivating as the Wonderland only she could inspire.

For mystery, crime and whodunit readers this Edgar-winning novelist Michael Connelly creates a new hero who is a lot greener but no less believable. This was a fun, nail-biting thriller, with a surprising twist at the end. It’s been years since I read one of Mr. Connelly’s books, but I won’t wait years to read another one.

I finished this book late last night. Although, listed as a YA book, I think Mr. Green writes for all ages. His rich words are musical staying with me long after I turned out the light.

This book is a funny, engaging coming of age book. Mr. Green gives his characters real flesh and blood as few authors can. A beautiful story of growing up, adventure and complicated people. I laughed, grew sad and laughed again.
