As I'm predominently a short story writer, I'm accustomed to relatively short magazine submission turn-around times. I also write novels, but I've no patience for the long waits involved with finding an agent, submitting novels to same, waiting until they get forwarded to publishers, waiting for acceptances, and then waiting for publication. Gosh, it can take years. Now though, with e-publishing (via Amazon and Barnes and Nobles), one can get a novel into 'publication' immediately. And, since a number of high-profile writers have taken this route, the stigma of self-publishing is fast vanishing. The downside is that much of the e-pubbed work out there isn't very good--and there's a lot of it. So the focus of the game is to get noticed. This, I am in the process of learning. As for the mechanics of e-publishing on Kindles and Nooks, it is relatively painless. I've put together something of a 'cookbook' that I use to convert from MS-Word to publication-ready documents.
