Kindle Instant eBook Previewer

My fellow writer’s group member and friend, Jenny Roman, recently published an ebook on Amazon, a collection of short stories called ‘The Camel in the Garden’. Here is an interesting blog post she wrote which many of you may also find helpful.

Most of us are familiar with the ‘Look Inside’ feature on Amazon, where you can preview the first few pages of an eBook before buying. It’s a great idea – after all, in a bookshop you’d look at the cover, read the blurb, and then the next thing you’re likely to do is flick to the first page and read a paragraph or two to get a feel for the author’s style, and judge whether or not the story might appeal to you.

        One of these days I’ll figure it out. I know that some books you have to pay for but there is some way to also down load from the free archives.
