To Kindle or not to Kindle...

My Carmine Rojas novella is closing in on done and I am torn about what to do with it when I finish. Aside from the obvious edit and revise...

I do have time to think about it but I still haven't come up with a satisfactory answer. Do I put it right up on Kindle or do I try a small e-publisher? Both have merits. I have heard over and over from small press people that they are making more on Kindle than on print books. I am working on my cover skills (when I have one done I'll post it here :) ) So I think I can give my novella a good presentation on Amazon. There are places that will format it for me and I'm going to search for more Kindle blogs to hopefully promote on.

But I still need help when it comes to promotion. I am better at it than I used to be. I follow a few reviewers out there but I'm not as good as a lot of people and have always found it daunting. I'm not good about talking about myself or my work. I don't have the self-esteem for it.

And darn it. I want to make the $100 it will cost me to format! Of course that $100 may be the decider. I should probably try a small press first then if all else fails Kindle it is!
