Diane, right now I think the best you can do inside a Kindle reader is link to the video that goes to an external site. Of course you can upload videos to your Author Central Profile too. Maybe there is a way and I’d like to know too. If there isn’t a way today, there should be a way soon.

Fred, I think it depends on who it is for and how they normally ask for material like that. Are you thinking of contacting publishers or agents?
