Going Kindle

Well, I've gone and done it. Tales From Under The Bridge is now available on Kindle. I was going to wait until I could sort out an ITIN for the US IRS. An ITIN is, simply speaking, a tax number so that you use to let the people paying you royalties not to withhold 30% of them for the IRS. In order to get an ITIN you need to fill in paperwork and send it off with a letter from whoever is paying your royalties. Then send that number to them so they can legal pay you the full amount.

It all seems quite straight forward but it means waiting until I am eligible to get a letter from Smashwords. Amazon, as far as I can tell, just flat out refuse to give anyone a letter at all. It's all a bit daunting to be honest and I'd much rather be writing stories than filling out forms.

In any case, I decided to just go for it and put the book on Amazon anyway.

Now I just need to finish off preparing the first novel for publication. It may seem as though I'm rushing ahead with it, but I have three in a series already written, with the plot for a fourth stewing away in my head. The first is almost ready, the second in the process of being edited and the third is a finished first  draft.

I estimate about a month before the first is released, and will pop out updates as I go.
