Submitted to Amazon KDP

I finished reviewing my final draft, found and fixed a few problems, then submitted it to Amazon KDP 8-1-20. Pretty easy process so far. Fun that they asked for my bank account info so they can send me royalties. For the paperback version, they wanted Word document converted to PDF, then uploaded. I am not done because I still need to submit a cover. For the Kindle version, they say Word is better than PDF so I uploaded that. While I am not done, at least they had a Kindle (MOBI) version I could download and see what it looks like on a PC version of Kindle. It's not as nice as the print version, but will try to see if I can fix it up. At least it is readable and the images and margins came through well. Anyway, a real milestone.
