Hello! I'm a newbie writer as my main career is music. My current project is a non-fiction self-help book for musicians called "God and Gigs". I'm hoping to gain a lot of insight from other self-publishers about the process. Thankfully I have a couple of friends already in the publishing business but more advice is never bad. Hope to connect with many of you soon!

Hi I'm Gabrielle Bryant, my first book The New Foundation later The Star Atlas, basically predicted the future as an allegory much like 1984 but it was written stream of thought, when I was fourteen. My latest book, which I also self published on LULU is a memoir of my life so far. I'm 26, I've been writing as an outlet since I was young. It helped me recover from schizophrenia, later found to be a misdiagnosis. I love to write and would like to meet new people!

Hi everyone! I just joined this community because I'm looking for 2-3 self published novels for my blog, www.scribblesandscrutiny.com. I do write a little but mostly I do critiques. The novels will be reviewed over the summer for my leisure summer section. Thanks and happy writing!

Hello everyone. I've recently self-published my first book. It's an erotic, m/m novella, intended for mature audiences. So far I think it's been doing great. And who knows, maybe I'll be able to pay the bills with this. It would be great :D
Cheers

Hi everyone, I am a self-published author who is looking at all of the options for both print and digital self-publishing. Boy it's complex! I'm also a pod caster - my podcast aims to give writers (of all persuasions) practical, helpful advice. I am intending to do an episode of self-publishing which will  be reflections from a number of very different people with different objectives, I'll post a lnk in a note here.

Thanks

Hi everybody. I'm new to both social media and self-publishing. I've been writing humor stories (at least I think they're funny :-) ) and publishing them on a blog for the past 4 years. I'm not sure anyone other than my family read my blog, so I've compiled my stories into a book that I want to self-publish. So, I'm feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment as I go through that process while rebranding my blog and trying to create a digital footprint. I'm glad that I found this group and I hope to have a chance to talk to people who are in a similar situation. Thank you.

Hello, I am so excited to have found this group and see so many creative people following a passion and dream. I just self published my first book, after 13 years of doubt and hard work. It is about addiction, recovery and life. It is Fiction, but based off of my life and experience. I am now looking to meet others and to maybe learn more about marketing and even just meet some new people.

I have a way of starting endeavours like this only to get frustrated and abandon ship before anything ever comes of them. I want to start a blog because it's recommended to all self-published authors, so I figure there must be something to it. I dismissed t...

Hi, just to introduce myself. I'm in the UK and turning my hand to writing on the basis of personal experience.  But I'm not here to promote my writing or anything else, just to get some tips and info on self-publishing. My first book didn't bomb, exactly, but neither did it fly. So I'm looking to learn...

No matter what I go looking for I end up with books. I think it's important in the long-term to not get bitter if your projects don't sell like gangbusters. Find something else to do while you're waiting for people to discover you. Go discover yourself.

Hello fellow writers! I found this site through a few different people I know who recommended it or 'liked' it on their sites. I am currently putting the final touches on my first  book that I will be self publishing very soon, I hope! However, there is still much to learn and this community seems full of exciting ideas and helpful hints. Glad to be here =)

Hi, I just joined this community.

I've recently published six short stories on Amazon, and am working on formatting a novel for publication. I am happy that I decided to publish some short stories first, as I learned a few things about the whole process that will help with my novel.

So, hello to fellow writers!

Hi! I decided to publish them individually for now, and plan on publishing a collection in the future.

From what I've read, some people like to purchase individual stories and some like compilations, so I may as well provide the option!

Hi, I've been thinking about getting into cover design, and using my 15 years experience in Photoshop and amateur graphic design in the new growth area of self-publishing. Let me know if you're looking for a professional looking cover, I may be able to make what you need.
