Well I have gone and done it! I have published a selection of poetry on KDP Select and await the boom in sales I have yet to see with my novels. Or not as the case may be. There aren't any illustrations but that was because I became seriously disenchanted with the process of placing them on the page to make them tie in with the appropriate verses.
The rules of KDP are such that this slim volume is available only through Amazon. As with all of us writers I would appreciate any feedback, or comment that you may wish to make.
