Hey, my name is T. Demarco Harris. I've written two books. One actually made it to the #1 Hot New Release on Amazon. Self publishing has been very rewarding. The key is finding the right self publishing company. I am a Christian author and would love to share my overall self publishing experience. Take care.

+Nathan Lowell Nathan you bring up a good point. I've worked with two services and one had some serious issues. So educating writers is a good cause to pursue. Thanks.

Hullo, all! My name is Derek and after years and years of writing I have taken the plunge into self publishing this year.

My first product was an RPG (The Dig) based on a novel I wrote some time ago. That novel (Homes) will be published this summer. Stoked to talk about the experience of self publishing with you all.

hello everyone,

I'm writing my first book and looking to develop a fan base of people interested. I'm an engineer and look to include that in my writing style. Is there a possibility of posting my first chapter and seeing if people are interested? Let me know.

Writing a contemporary romance series and two standalone erotic titles that I plan to self publish.  Look forward to any tips the community can offer.  Would love to connect to other romance or erotica writers who would like to brainstorm or commiserate.

Thanks Sybille for your opinion as well. Not being childish, and I'm pretty good at taking criticism. If you read the comments, I recognized the need to update my profile, which I did. After doing so, I was still "advised" that nowhere on my profile did I display my links, which was incorrect. There's a difference in defending yourself against untruths and throwing a tantrum, as your post insinuates that I did. Again, we can either be adults, or we can resort to name calling, like children do.

Oh, and I sincerely appreciate your notation of the first link in my first response being misspelled. It's correct on my Google+ page, which was the initial reason behind this post. Enjoy your day!

Hello All,
I followed +C.S. McClellan  and +Lissa Johnston over here from our Google+ for Writers group, and wow, have I already learned a lot from the comments and advice you've given other new members! 

I write space opera (a science fiction sub-genre) and just self-pubbed the novella I wrote years ago for the Writers of the Future contest. It serves as a prequel to the upcoming novels set in the same universe.

I'm using it as a "reader magnet" to try to build my list so I hopefully have people interested in the first novel when it comes out later this year. Any ideas or advice on that would be wonderful!

I went in and changed my About page here on G+ based on what several of you told some of the other new people; any advice or suggestions would be gratefully accepted.

Interestingly, I am a fan of one of the moderators, +Nathan Lowell and didn't realize that's who it was. I loved Quarter Share and have been meaning to go back and get the rest. :-) 

Anyway, I'm looking forward to being a member and hope to have useful things to share, as I'm always reading up on self-pub topics and ideas.

Hello group members,

I began my publishing journey over two years ago when my high school age daughter finished her novel. After considering some publishing options, I decided to tackle the project myself. Then a year later...her friend also had written a couple of novels...not yet published....

I've made some mistakes and learned quite a bit...I hope to share with others and save them time and expense in publishing their works.

The  B.S. in Management Information Science degree I finished in my mid-forties has been helpful. Technology related to creating, editing, publishing and marketing ebooks and paperbacks is my passion.

I'm looking forward to interacting with and learning from you.

Say Hi! Introductions here  - 
 
Greetings, all! I'm participating in Rachel Thompson's 30 Day Marketing Challenge. Recently we were tasked with setting up a brand profile on Google+ to help our SEO rankings. I had set one up long ago but honestly had forgotten about it. I've been hitting up G+ more often recently, but from my personal profile. So today's the day! I'm reviving activity on my brand profile and trying to figure out which writing communities work with the brand rather than the personal profile.

I have several children's NF books traditionally published, and just tried my hand at self-pubbing a middle grade fiction book last summer. Love self-pubbing so much - really enjoying the process although I'm not seeing a lot of sales yet. But I am the soul of patience and willing to learn. Glad to be here and look forward to meeting you all.

+Nathan Lowell Genius comment and very insightful - this is the question I should be asking myself before writing each future post. Fortunately the one post I was referring to did have a direct connection to my latest book, but many of my other posts are tangential at best.

Hi all,

I've just joined the community and am new to this Google+ thing. I'm looking to self-publish a couple of children's books (eventually) and am currently researching how I go about it.

Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for self-publishing companies I should include in my research?

Thanks!

I have a question on my habit of writing and Motivation
I tend to write stream of conscience, do any..many others here do?
Did you grow out of it?

If that is the way it feels right to you then it is right. And there is always the editing step to get those pesky punctuations nailed down. Don't try to force yourself to write in a way that doesn't feel right for you, but when it comes to the editing step keep the reader in mind and prune and polish until your words shine.
