Sorry it did not work out, Neil. 
Wow!! I wrote earlier this week there was one final chance to adopt Xavier.  That hope fell through. Here is the story well told by Miser Mom.

Is there a top-100 list of sorts out there that shows who the most influential writers are by country of origina? I was wondering who's influencing the individual nations and on what subject?

Say Hi! Introductions here  - 
 
Hello there. Looks like an interesting group. I have four self-published books and getting ready to publish another this month or next. Used CreateSpace for all and I've been pretty pleased with the whole process. I am looking forward to reading some of the posts and hopefully learning from others' experiences.

Hello. New community member here. Just wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I have four books out. The latest book, The Sheltering Country, was published Feb 22, 2014. Last year, my nonfiction book, Hezekiah Rasco: Child of Woe -- Man of Sorrow, a fiction book titled Brothers Such As These, and a Kindle e-book titled The Oppressor Project all went public. I'm looking forward to reading the posts here. This appears to be a very lively group.

A while back I came across this section in the Kansas City Star's site and thought I would share it. It is for submitting press releases. You will want to read the guidelines for submissions after signing up. I didn't find it in time to put out the release for my latest book, but I will be using it for the next one. I hope it helps. http://pressreleases.kcstar.com/register/

Questions, questions, questions: Is it possible to make a slow ascent into outer space? And, if so, would that slowly ascending ship encounter the problems with friction that rapid ascension creates or suffer some other issues? I mean, how hard is it to transition from one part of the earth's atmosphere and the space that surrounds it? These are the questions that challenge me tonight. Anyone have responses? Science behind this?

Thank you all so much for sharing your knowledge on these topics, and for the links for further reading. Each new piece of information helps me refine this concept a bit further. 

The ship I have in mind would be quite strong, perhaps virtually indestructible, but not entirely so. Flawed vehicles offer a weath of opportunities for dramatic scenes.

So, the launch window won't be much of a concern, but weather might play a part. Interesting.  I'll definitely give some reading time to the topic of space elevators. I've heard the term but don't know much about them.

I've been considering purchasing a banner ad to run, but I'm not entirely sure how that works for pricing and how are the ads targeted to a specific group as opposed to just going out into the wider realm?

Thank you all. Your insights and experiences are very valuable. Drew, I browsed fiverr a bit but found myself more skeptical than accepting. I can do the graphic for the banner with no problem.

Melanie may be right about their effectiveness. Typically I ignore ads on most pages I visit unless something is very dramatic. And I have FlashBlocker installed to keep my system from getting bogged down by video ads that put a drain on it. 

Belinda and Kim, I'll check out the links you shared. Thank you. There are so many pages out there you can spend half your life just researching them.  I don't have a marketing plan, so I will definitely give the blog a good read to see what I need to do there.

Hello. I'm looking for a community where I can learn more about sci-fi fantasy writing. A concept has been sloshing about in my imagination and I believe it may prove to be a viable one. It has been a few years since I read extensively in this genre. I grew up a fan of this type of writing, but somehow got away from it. Based on the few posts I've read so far, this appeares to be a spirited group where I can learn some dos and don'ts to help me take the concept from thoughts to publishable formt.

Also +Susan Cronk if you like listening to podcasts, I highly recommend Writing Excuses, Hide and Create, and Speculate! These three podcasts help me continually learn about writing in our genre.

I recently downloaded about 10,000 pages of .pdf files for reading as research on the new book on the history of Arkoe. My eyeballs ache just thinking about reading through it all. But my brain is ready for the challenge. The book is shaping up, but I'm thinking it's not going to make the 2013 publication deadline I originally set. The railroad research alone is a challenge.

Introduction

I am an avid writer, and reader of books both fiction and non.  I enjoy reading historical biographies, particularly, and I am fortunate to work in a field that allows me to help, in some small part, in preserving history for future generations. 

I enjoy traveling, both day trips and distant jaunts, and I enjoy talking with people.  My life can be very hectic at times, so opportunities for pursuing hobbies is limited. 

I am a Christian, trying every day to live life more abundantly in and obedient to Christ.

This is a wonderful place for visitors and researchers. There are many fascinating exhibits and the staff are wonderfully helpful. I utilized the archived information there and tapped the staff knowledge to help me in researching pictures and books for my nonfiction book. They were very helpful in locating materials, and also made recommendations about additional resources outside of the museum's collections.
