My first Paul Jacobson Geezer-lit Mystery, Retirement Homes Are Murder, is now available on Kindle at
The process was relatively painless given the guidance I received from fellow authors Sunny Frasier and Jon Baxley. After getting started at I followed the directions and converted my Word manuscript to html (using Save As and specifying Save As Type as Web). After this conversion, I uploaded the document and added all the information requested from Amazon. The only big decision I had to make was on the price. I ended up pricing it at $4.99 which Amazon discounted to $3.99. Three days later, my book appeared on Kindle. Since then I’ve joined a number of Kindle Forums and began posting notices on:,,,9.0.html,, and Also, I have been tracking messages from people who have downloaded a sample and have purchased the book. Quite a process.
