Which indie publishers have you used and been satisfied with? I am looking for a change and could use some feedback.

This is a fascinating way to do it. In California I would have to get a merchant's license. Is there anything else you had to do to declare yourself as your own publishing company?

Introduce Yourself  - 
Hi! I'm Susan H. McIntyre. I'm a partially housebound author with multiple chronic illness and an absurd sense of humor. I have over 30 years experience writing, but this is the first time I am writing for myself. I am the author of Orphan Dreams (plain-talk poetry) and Living in the Theater of the Absurd: Chronic Illness (creative non-fiction with a serious purpose of fighting the victim mentality). I am working on finding my personal writing voice,and the next book will express more of the faith that has gotten me through the impossible.

I am planning my next poetry book. If you have read Orphan Dreams, could you please let me know if you have a favorite. I will be including a "best of Orphan Dreams" section based on reader feedback.

I want to write about the role of faith in living a contented life despite medical limitations. Do you think this would be more effective as a fiction novel or as a non-fiction account? My brain is caught in tubular thoughts on this - going round and round. What is your opinion? I want it to be clearly Christian, but I don't want it to feel dry or "preachy" to the reader. What do you think?

This is one I am thinking of writing. Currently I have written a contemporary poetry book and a creative non-fiction book on living with chronic illness. Although I am currently working on a poetry anthology, I am thinking about where to go next in my writing.

I'm making snowball cookies, traditional Swedish pepparkakor (spice cookies) and spritzar (a/k/a spritz). If I have time I will also make traditional Armenian boorma (a rolled version of paklava).
