Kindling Interest In an Historical Book

A while back, I got interested in an 1817 memoir of William Sampson, an Irish Protestant lawyer exiled to America for his support of Irish Catholics. I bought a copy and carefully typed it up, but then what? Publishing is expensive and time-consuming, and this was never going to be a best seller.

Now, however, eBooks makes it pretty easy to give this into "print". I am experimenting with making it available for Kindle downloads, and if this works, I may try some other formats. I don't know whether this will actually sell any copies, but it's an interesting experiment!
