Having read numerous articles and everyone's helpful advice I've decided to put my backlist on Amazon.
The physical part of converting my work was not as difficult as I'd feared. Amazon issued very issue to follow instructions and I didn't actually reach the 'head banging' stage as I thought I might. I am not the most techie person in the world and that is why I've lagged behind everyone else.
Having said that, my progress has been delayed. Going back over my earlier works has made me realise how much my writing has changed since I started doing pocket novels. The earlier works I've had to seriously re-write in certain places. I rather rushed into the first two but now I am on my third one I can see it will form a major part of my year's work to convert them.
Some of my work doesn't flow too well and although the stories are only a few years old they have become dated. In the modern world of technology I suppose that it inevitable but it suprised me. I think it's a very good exercise to get out some of your older work and look at it. You realise you are in danger of repeating phrases, plots, even names. It exercises new writing muscles and of course reading the stories with a fresh eye after a long break away gives you a different perspective.
