How do I fill out the title info when publishing my book on Amazon KDP

What information do I put into Amazon KDP when I'm uploading my webcomic book?

First what I need to do is I need to download the book that I created in google docs. I download it as a docx file. I don't know why they added the "x" to the Microsoft word documents file extension?

Then I go over to Amazon KDP and I choose "create a book".

I choose to create it as a paperback.

The first step is adding:

  • the author info 
  • a description of the book


That information will be used for the Amazon page where the book is going to be sold.

Then I also need to choose a category for the book on Amazon.

Amazon KDP only lets you choose two categories. 

I just added two categories that are sub-sections under comics and graphic novels. I chose non-fiction and general. I choose that because these comics I make are actually true! So it is non-fiction.

I made a video talking more about this and the whole process of making my webcomic book. You can check that out on the site here! Making a Webcomic Book on Amazon - Part 3

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca

Travel coffee - A silly Horsey Headface comic

There is a character I was messing around with a while back that I called "Horsey Headface" . How it started I was originally messing around with this as an idea for a children's book character. I drew it as a kid dressed in a cowboy getup in the vector program Inkscape in an old '60s children's book style. But then I decided to give it a horsehead. Horsey Headface Children's book idea But truthfully, by the time I was done, I didn't really do anything with it and felt like drawing it all out in a vector program took too long. Drawing it more cartoon-like I felt like trying to make the character goofier. So I was trying different cartoon-like styles. I drew this version of Horsey Headface tap dancing on the  Google Keep app  on my phone. Horsey Headface sketch from my phone I kinda felt like I would enjoy drawing the character this way a little more. Also, it wouldn't take me as long to do. I thought maybe I could even animate it so I drew a version o
