Piercing the Fold on iPod, iPad through Kindle App

I have always used my Kindle Fire rather than iPad or iPhone for reading. But, I wanted to see how easy the process of uploading the Kindle App from the Apple Store actually was. Super easy!! Just needed to make sure I linked my Amazon account to the Kindle App once downloaded. When I purchased Piercing the Fold on the iPad for my husband to read, all I had to do is designate which device I wanted it to go to. That was it! I uploaded Piercing the Fold to my iphone as well to see how it looked. Thought it would be difficult to see the words. Not so! You can change the font to suit your visual needs. It is truly amazing what these Apps can do!

On another note, I am having the Kindle version of Piercing the Fold's formatting revised to flow better. As a reader, it is bothersome to have a chapter start mid-page; HTML stuff that I know very little about. I'm hoping for it to be resolved within a couple of weeks.

Happy Independence Day, PIERCING THE FOLD as an Independent Author

It is surreal. Piercing the Fold has been released as my first independently published novel. It is available on venessakimball.net for paperback! And, as of this morning, it is available on Kindle for $2.99!.
It has been a long road. One that I enjoyed every minute of. I have received such support from my family and dear friends.
I have to reflect on the fact that it is Independence Day! Happy 4th of July!
Independence reaches so deeply in each of us. Today, it personally reaches me as an Indpenedent Author. The fact that I am able, with the help of entities in the US, to independently reach through promotion, publication, and word of mouth, thousands of people with my written word is surreal! To know the written word is banned STILL in so many countries around our world is mind-boggling to me.
I am a very proud woman today...elated!
I so hope you enjoy your read of Piercing the Fold. The characters have lived in my mind for just over 2 years. And, half of their story isn't even completely told yet. (Yes, book 2 is being drafted)
It plays in my mind like a movie! Yes, sounds cliche, but very true! Thank God for blessing writers with good imaginations and a passion for sharing their imaginations, right!
Enjoy, enjoy. Get lost in the book:).
Do check out the trailer for the release, right here on the blog.
Happy 4th and be safe!

24 hours until the release!

Quick update, as I wait for homemade spaghetti pie for finish for family dinner :).
Piercing the Fold will be uploaded and ready to purchase on Kindle and Amazon tomorrow evening! Turned out to be longer than I had expected; rounding out at 562 pages. If you can tackle the Harry Potter sized books, this will be perfect!
Have posted the 24 hour marker book trailer on this site. Happy viewing!
