    I also imagine you need a certain amount of content and do you need to pay for the publishing? I remember someone on the spectrum, Talmer Shockley, said getting his book (The Love-Shy Survival Guide) published cost him his life savings and he sadly disappeared never to be heard from again. I sometimes think about creating enough short stories and seeing if I could get them published in a collection.

    Different places have different prices, but Amazon is free. And I don't think there's a minimum amount of content required, at least for Amazon. That's unfortunate that he spent his life savings. I wonder how he did it.

    Congratulations!

    A good children's story for you could be The Curious Case of Benjamin Duckin's.
    As I remember your duck kept getting younger and younger.
    OK, go ahead and say it, bad joke. ;)

    Anyone living in Florida has probably had a lot of experience with the Palmetto Bug roach.
    I first encountered them when I moved here at age 21.
    Woke up in the night to one biting my neck. Vampire roach?
    They bite, they fly, they stink and carry salmonella.
    Just to let people know.

    They are jokingly called the state bird of Florida!

    Could I buy one any where else? don't buy anything from Amazon,id like to get it as I support a UK campaign for assisted death and could tell them about it, in the UK the law would be for terminal illness only.

    You could buy the Ebook from Kindle. That's separate from Amazon, right?
