Miron: Mariupol's Baby

By rah | rah | 14 Aug 2023

One of the things that got me interested in crypto was the desire to earn passive income and while i still am hodling (for that is all I am doing for the time being) I am also looking at other ways to increase my passive income and one of the alternatives is through writing.

Through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) it now couldn't be easier and once the manuscript is written it can be online and ready to go within a couple of hours, even if their policy requests that the author waits for up to 72 hours. What makes it easier too is that a writer simply has to upload to KDP a .docx (Word Document) and a .jpeg image (so long as it meets the size an quality requirements). There is no need to mess about with EPUB or MOBI formats or mess about with images.

The uploading process and preparation of the KDP form literally takes minutes.

And so with this I uploaded and released my first KDP project earlier in the year and now I have just uploaded my second one.


Here is a summary of the context of the story - also available on Amazon.

The birth of a baby is one of the most exciting events that a parent can ever experience. The sudden arrival after months of preparation, and in some cases years of trying, marks a new start, a beginning and a new adventure for baby and parents alike.
In February 2022 Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine and soon besieged the Black Sea port of Mariupol. In the middle of the siege was one couple who were probably no different to countless others around them. They were just a regular couple celebrating and looking forward to the birth of their first child.
This is their story.


If you are a UK Amazon Prime user can you please download it for FREE(even if you don't read it) and I would appreciate, for those of you who do read it, a rating on the Amazon Website to improve it's visibility. I guess there is a similar scheme for all Amazon Worldwide users, but i cannot vouch for this so have a look anyway.I get a tiny royalty from Amazon's worldwide fund and while each royalty adds up to very little as the saying goes "from small acorns grow..."

It all helps and if you like my writing please consider having a look at my first book THE PORTAL.

Of course if you feel like it feel free to "buy" it, but I am not asking for nor expecting that.

Each "book" will only take 10 to 15 minutes to read.

The key to successful living is Passive Income and every little helps. My apologies if this seems spamish but I firmly believe that we are all here to help each other out and if it costs nothing then why not.

Stay safe and well my friends.
