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.

Hi folks I just joined this group my name is Brian. This is probably going to sound stupid. Is there way to determine if a story has merit in telling. I am not referring to fiction but actual events. Cheers

If the story is based on real events, you might to have be careful of how you word it or you might get sued?!

Tiffany Simone the Writer

Say Hi! Introductions here  - 
 
Hello my name is Tiffany. I am passionate about writing stories that touch the heart and evoke human emotions.

I currently live in New York City, am a single parent, and a community activist who mentors underserved at-risk youth. My community service and advocacy work garnered the attention of The New York Yankees in which I received the prestigious “New York Yankees State Farm ‘Go To Bat’ Award”. Between family, work, school, and my community outreach, I always find the time to write and never stop believing that one day I would publish a book that would ultimately end up on the big screens or as a television blockbuster. 1 out of 3 isn’t bad,’ but who knows what the future holds.

I am proud to announce that in 2014, I have wrote and self-published two books:

FALLEN PETALS: THE DECEPTION, THE DECEIT, & THE DAMNED (Ficition)
'TWAS MO' THAN JUST A LI'L CHRISTMAS (Children's Holiday Book)

Currently working on my 2nd novel a suspense-thriller:
LORENDALE'S LAW: FALLEN PETALS AFTERMATH

The moderator said we should get to know each other... so I'm inviting you to pop into my biggest presence, my You Tube channel.  There's a lot of original content there and plenty of clips from my books.  I'm a graphic designer and audiobook narrator, a grandfather and I love to write about philosophy.  I'm looking forward to learning a lot from the folks here - it looks great.

Greetings to my fellow writers!

I'm Danielle. I'm a self-published author (award-winning) and I promise not to pester you guys about buying my books! LOL. I'm thrilled to be included among you guys who take writing and publishing seriously. I love to share what I've learned so I'll be posting writing tips, promotion tips, not to mention questions. I will most likely be posting from my page +Bravebird Books but I wanted to let you know that I am a real person.

Wishing you all the best of luck!

Hi, I'm a self-published 19 year-old who writes revision guides. In the last 9 months since first self-publishing, I have sold over 800 copies of my first title and have now started my own publishing house, with the intention of publishing 4 further titles in the next 3 months. I hope to share what I have learnt while also gaining from others in this community. I am based in the UK, with plans for global expansion... Hopefully... Eventually!

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.

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...

Hi, 
My name is Kelly K. Lavender. Writing, reading, riding horses and training dogs top my list of Favorite Things. Working on my second novel novel now. My first novel earned a bouquet of book awards. I included a picture as it represents my business card, so to speak.

Hi and glad to be here! I just started my adventure in self-publishing in 2014, writing mysteries under the name Laurel Heidtman and romances under the name Lolli Powell. I'm a late bloomer since I didn't start publishing until I was retired from the 9 to 5 life. Retirement was boring; starting a new career as an author is not!
Welcome to my home on the web! I write mysteries and romances--can't make up my mind whether I prefer killers or kisses so I indulge in both! I publish my mysteries under the name Laurel Heidtman and...

Hi everyone,

I have spent the last 30+ years working as a chef all over the place! This has taught me not only a great deal about different foods of the World but also how to make the best of what you have. I have now decided to spend my dotage passing on what I have learned and spend my time cooking, eating and writing about it (or sitting on the settee as my partner calls it!).

I have had one “real” book published and now keep writing and publishing ebooks in the hope that they will be of help to people.

The value of video-trailers and book websites: THE BOY WHO SET FIRE TO THE BIBLE, a new novel.

My fantasy-SF novel "The Boy Who Set Fire to the Bible" is set to hit book outlets in the coming month. A website and video-trailer are in the works and will be available soon—all commentaries on or experience with these marketing tools will be greatly appreciated in providing further direction in their completion.

Teaser topics in the book:
·        Adolf Hitler captures and delivers boy-prodigy unto Satan.
·        Identity of model posing for Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa finally revealed.
·        Unearthly foe duped Jewish and Roman leaders into killing Jesus.

Thank you to Carsten Laqua, author of How Mickey Mouse fell under the Nazis and of Donald Duck…and the duck has become a man, who says of the novel, “Carl delivers Sci-Fi/Fantasy at its best. The plot and subplots blend together splendidly. As a seasoned journalist, I could easily see the novel’s many revelations as powerful newspaper headlines fostering the revaluation of the status quo. Are you up to a leap of the imagination? ”
