Well, the book is finished, the cover is finished, everything on my Kindle account is up to date, but I can't publish the book.

Let me explain what's going on here:

Everything was going great o the upload page until I got to the bottom where we upload the text file. There's an orange button that says "browse". When you click it, your files come up. You pick your file and click "choose".

Then nothing happens.

When I say nothing happens, I mean that the choose file window disappears and the page is no different. There is no spinner showing that something is uploading, no sign to say that anything has been uploaded, no change to the "browse" button. When you click "save and continue", it says that you need to upload a file - nothing has uploaded.

Oh, you say, the file is probably in the wrong format. You check the list of accepted formats. The one you have the file in is listed, but oh well, you'll just save it again under each of the accepted formats and will continue attempting to upload until one works.

Then nothing happens.

Huh. Maybe I should try using Mozilla instead of Chrome.

Nothing happens.

I'll restart my computer and try all of the above again.

Nothing happens.


Yeah, I don't know what to do here. I haven't found anything close to an answer online (not on Amazon's FAQ, not on Google, nothing). I sent a query to Amazon's Kindle Q&A but they never answer those. I'm genuinely asking you guys if you have any ideas.

You know what y'all need?

You need some sci-fi inspiration on you butts, that's what you need.

DIDN'T HE DO AN AMAZING JOB, FOLKS???
I seriously can't wait to get this published. It'll be rad as fuck.

We were told to choose a hilariously specific fetish, so we went for gay cyberpunk bondage noir. A combo of everything we like in one neat package.

He and I have been working partners for years. He's the other half od Serious Engineering and it wouldn't exist without his extremely important input.

We've also been working all week on our new side business - writing erotica for Amazon Kindle. Apparently if you pump out a quality short book a week and pay attention to trends, you can make quite a handsome living.

We've taken the moniker "Captain Sledgehammer". Subtle, right?

Hello.
I was born in South Candyland under the rule of Queen Frosting. I was raised in a strict Necronomic household by Nigerian parents who died in a freak child-rearing accident that left me alone and homeless at the tender age of thirty-four. After traveling Asia via balloon and sniping those FUCKING MONGOLIAN FUCKERS for ice cream money I started drawing cartoons about a homosexual super villain with a debilitating spinal disease.

I'm allergic to kiwi fruit.
