Mailbag: Prepping comics for Kindle Direct Publishing
Q: I know you are putting your work up on Amazon, and I was hope you’d do a post about your process and what tools you use etc. Specifically, I’m interested in:
• Creating Landscape pages (which seemed to be a problem for Amazon, or Graphicly) – I notice you chose Portrait, even though landscape would have been better suited to your strips, why?
• Using HTML and hyperlinks (join my mailing list/visit my site/ buy the next book)
Filesize fees and how this effects an artist’s cut (which seems uncool considering they’re pushing an HD platform)… What file sizes are possible?
• If it’s possible to hit old Kindles and Fires with one file? How?
• How did you achieve the background colour and heading you have on your comic? My comic (which you can download from Amazon) has white around it which looks terrible.
