creating a book on Amazon - has anyone done this?

creating a book on Amazon - has anyone done this?

I was talking to friends about doing a book with Blurb of some cartoons I've been doing about my kittens. One who is very internet savvy said NO - do it with Amazon and set up an ISBN number and they print on demand and you can also do an ebook.

It sounds better but advice from anyone who has done this would be good



this is one of the pages as an example you can see more if you are interested on fb Life with Kittens

I have a friend who published a children's book that she also illustrated via Amazon and she is very pleased with the results. It's got a very narrow audience, it's about a specific disability, but the sales outnumbered her expectations.

I see sites for creating books and whatever from your art and writing, but I'm not aware of how one does this on Amazon itself. Can you please inform us?

I actually illustrated 2 books for an author about the adventures of her cat. She was quite pleased with the results. Not sure how she's doing now since she was dealing with cancer and treatments. Not sure if she won the war. ☹️
And yes she used Blurb and Amazon.
