Delighted to have you join us the Novelist group. You might jump in by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. I’ll look forward to chatting with you!

For your electronic format...go to Smashwords.com and look at their sample to determine how to format. You can use the same format, just change "Smashwords" to "Kindle" on Amazon's Kindle. Both are free to upload. Price above $2.99 on Kindle...
