Random Publishing on the Kindle

Yet another way to subtract time from one’s life:

http://www.amazon.com/Two-Coastal-Flowers-California-Landscapes/dp/B001VH7PXQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237490258&sr=8-1

Yep, that’s my first book ever.  Published.  On Amazon. By Amazon, actually.  It was a test, but an interesting one.  I just opened Microsoft Word, dragged and dropped a couple flower pictures, saved it, and uploaded it.  Ta-da!  A two-page book.

I’d already signed up with the Amazon Kindle publishing service here:

It’s a dollar because that’s the minimum price I could set.  Or rather, I set it to $1.00 and Amazon repriced it to $.80, for reasons I don’t understand.
