Thanks to Nook2Android, I can now dual boot perfectly. I can also buy Kindle content totally by accident. Yay! Like I want a digital book that costs $15.37. I would blame my fingers but I was on the PC so I can't explain how it happened.
I cannot figure how to get books into Aldiko, I sideloaded content onto the chip, but it doesn't see it.
I can't download apps from the Marketplace. I suppose like most things computer, I'll figure it out eventually. Or not. The whole point was to be able to access the Kindle store and I've demonstrated I can do that.
I am intrigued by the process of my new book. It started with let's call it a logline as you would describe a movie. It sounded great/cool/current. Then I began writing. As a military man would say "No battle plan ever survives first contact with the enemy."
I know people who plan a story out fully before they write a word. I've worked with them and saw them do it.
I can't. I get lead, or lead astray. Situations, bright and shiny, come up and glow with unexpected promise. I follow the siren song. And 50 pages later I realize this is not where I started.
That's why I always stunk when trying to convince agents or editors I could get to the end in one piece. They insist on having things planned out and I don't write like that.
Amazon is opening up India. Well that's good because that's where the support is. Kidding, somewhat, since I did talk to Amazon India about 30 min ago to cancel that accidental purchase. He might have been called Sean for support purposes but I know his name was Raj or similar. I hope many Indians are willing to read English not Hindi because I'm not having my books translated. Not that Indian children would be expected to read my horse books. I actually have no idea what the book market is like in India but this just reinforces the point that we're in a global marketplace and tradpub/legacy publishing is behind the times while Jeff Bezos races forward.
I love this image. I was making tabouleh for lunch and putting the stems to the side. When I looked over there, it looked so great, I had to take a photo of it.
