Welcome FreeSoul :)

Posted by FreeSoul1 Mar 14, 2018

Hello everyone,

My name is FreeSoul, I'm French and I'm here to seek information and share mines. I am not an author yet but I wrote a self-help book and will soon be publishing it. I feel like there is absoutely no-one here writing about self-help, but am I wrong ?
Anyways, I'm more than happy to surf on this platform and grow my skills.

Hello - I am new here

Posted by djgw Mar 11, 2018

I have noodled on my book for a few years.  I have decided to get it out to see if there is any interest.  I (like everyone here) think it's pretty good.  But, I find I am a better writer than I am a publisher.  I am new to this....any tips or advise would be greatly appreciated.

This is my first book and what have I learned? That writing is an arduous task. It demands your full attention. It begins to take priority over other people and events happening around you. No one, absolutely no one will take the time to read your work and offer a candid and objective opinion. I thank God for my editor, George, who was interested and patient to a fault. I can see why people become reclusive to write. I chose to get out of bed at 4:30 AM and work until I'm out of coffee or things to say. Writing this book has been cathartic for me. But there is a lot left unsaid too.


I am a 63 year-old retired lawyer and former Assistant Attorney General living in Dallas. I spent six years on USAF active duty, almost all of it at Whiteman Air Force Base in Western Missouri. I was trained as a medic and EMT and spent most of my time assigned to the WAFB Hospital Emergency Room.


I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. Later, I attended law school at the Uniersity of Michigan, the Western Campus formerly Thomas M. Cooley Law School. I passed the bar examination on my first attempt and began my legal career in private practice handling civil litigation and criminal defense cases. I entered public service in the United States Territory of American Samoa as an Assistant Attorney General and later as General Counsel for LBJ Tropical Medical Center. If your geography's rusty, American Samoa is the only United States Territory in the Southern hemisphere. It lies about 2,500 miles South of Hawaii. The largest and main Island is Tutuila with its deep harbour and what's known as the "rainmaker" mountain. The people of American Samoa are warm and friendly. It's everthing you'd expect from a tropical island in the Souh Pacific. Eventually, we returned stateside when I secured a position as an Assisitant Attorney General for the State of Vermont. My wife and I were fortunate to live in two incredibly beautiful places, back-to-back.


My wife and I were married in 1974. We have two adult children living nearby. We have been blessed with two grand children.


My book is the true story of what happened to my friend and I when we took a two night camping trip to Devils Den State Park in Northern Arkansas. We witnessed a UFO the size of a five story office buiding. It was an enormous triangular shaped craft that hovered about 30 feet over the floor of the meadow below.  We were terrified. Peering through a flap in our tent we saw a dozen or more small figures. What I first thought to be children. I whispered to my friend, "What in god's name are children doing so deep ..." He cut me off, "Man, those ain't little kids."  Then I understood.


The book provides as much detail as I can recall regarding the incident. Much of it from memories recalled under hypnosis, my own memories and notes and drawings made from late 1977 through 1979.  We returned from our trip severly dehtdrated and badly sunburned. It's worth noting that the sunburn we suffered covered every inch f our bodies.  The soles of my feet were sunburned. My friend and I were both harshly interrogated by Special Agens from the USAF's Office of Special Investigations or "OSI," who mistakenly believed I had photographed this thing. God I wish I had. The event was followed by 18 to 24 months of horrific nightmares. The kind of nightmare that I woke from screaming. It was my wife's idea to begin a journal and record the dreams and sketch the iages I had in my mnd. By 1980 we were through and wanted nothing to do with UFOs. Over the years it became a habit to record the nightmares as they occured. That material was invaluable in writing this book.


For fear of losing job and standing in the legal community, I remained silent for 40 years. That all changed in 2012. After a fall I went to an emergency room for treatment The Physician Assistant who treated me took a total of eight shots of my right thigh and knee. She asked if I suffered a shrapnel wound or any other kind of past misadvnture that coud account for a piece of metal in my thigh. I told her I never left the States during my term of service and, "No, I had never been in an automobile accident or injured my leg in any way." She summoned a radiologist. He arrived shortly and looked over my films apparently unimpressed. He said, I'd like to examine your knee to find the point of entry." I was unclear, "Doctor what do you mean when you say "point of entry?"  He explained, "For this bit of metal almot 2 inches deep in my thigh there must be a scar." He examined my leg, eventually killing the overhead lights to examine my knee with a hand-held black light. There is no scar.

I am Daniella1, and the author of the above title. I have always loved writing. I started writing my book when I was 27 years old after a horrible first encounter with my biological father. I have wanted to tell my story for years. It has been my dream to share my story with the hope of helping others that have had unstable childhoods, and have suffered for reasons beyond their control. After my divorce, I picked up where I left off many years ago and finally finished the book.  It has been a challenge, but I have learned many things. It has been a rewarding experience. I look forward to corresponding and sharing information with other authors.

I've been in publishing 37 years.  Wrote or packaged 19 books which have sold 5 million copies.  Have 2 books currently on Kindle, one of which is doing well and the other I'm working on.  Consider myself a near expert in understanding Amazon categories.


Am just finishing writing a jokebook for CreateSpace, and have NO IDEA what to do to get it formatted and to get a cover.  Would like to hire someone, hopefully someone wonderful and not too expensive!  If you have anyone to recommend, I'd certainly be grateful.

Hi all,


I've been publishing on CreateSpace for the past six years, both my own books and those of clients.


As a small (tiny) independent, I'm acutely aware of the costs that some companies charge to publish books for the self-published.


I offer a select, competitively-priced, full spectrum service for those wishing to be self-published.


Visit for further information.


I would be delighted to discuss your project with you.

brazilfroggy books

Posted by froggyman Jan 29, 2018

I am a writer of children books.  I have always been involved with drawing, painting, and illustrations.  I alos was raised in southern Louisiana where I became very familiar with the many characters that appear in my Froggy books.  After much trial and error, along with the encouragement from a few friends and acquaintances I was able to create my first book, entitled "Froggy:  The Beginning."  It is a story about a little frog who was rescued and raised by a kind stranger after a violent flood swept her away from her mom and siblings.  The setting is in an imaginary location in the Manchac, Louisiana area which I named the "Kooterville Swamp."  Her story continues in the books that follow.  Suitable for young children and adults who like to read to their children.  Large print with color illustrations.

Hello all! My name is Leah and I am currently a college student. I am here for a very specific reason. It has been my dream to publish a memoir; I am a severely bipolar teen attending a top 15 university. I feel my story would be an inspiration to others because I have an almost storybook life story.


Does anyone know any resources for help writing a memoir? I spoke to a successful author and he said that I should start a journal but past that, is there anything else I should do?

Knowledge of God

Posted by Isaiah613 Jan 19, 2018

As My Journey in Knowing God has progressed over the years, I am finding out more and more information that is not only relateable but necessary in bringing others into the revelation that Jesus Christ is the only way to our Heavenly Father, Jehovah. In the beginning He created us, both male and female to not just populate the earth, but to become His children and live in His Kingdom using His principles to increase the blessings on our lives. First, you must be born again to begin your own Journey in Knowing God. I take my walk with the Lord very seriously and I believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. His voice in the earth is to be heard as He communicates with us to enjoy our fellowship with Him and develop our relationship with Him to know who He is. The names of Jehovah are many, but there is only one Godhead. Each name was given to Him by the Israelites in the Old Testament who were the chosen of His Kingdom and went through the wilderness to come into the promised land. Through this 40 year journey which originally should have only taken 11 days, however the children of Israel were disobedient many times and the promises were delayed, but never denied. I know for myself, we learn through disobedience, not on purpose but to find out who God is and what is expected of us as the people of God, representing His Kingdom for others to know Him also. It is important to understand that when you become a child of God, there are ways to please the Father and ways to find yourself that whatever you have done can be turned into a blessing instead of a curse as we repent and ask our Heavenly Father for forgiveness which will mature us. We are to be the salt of the earth meaning we are to be the ones He has chosen to make known that there is a God in heaven and He created us to glorify through our worship and our praise to our Creator. He is Holy and we are the holy people of God to become a holy nation. It is time for the church to wake up out of the sleep we have been in and become the chosen of the Most High to help prepare others as we ourselves are prepared for our soon coming King, Jesus Christ.

I have a beautiful line of Christian greeting cards, called, Magnificent Cards by Rebecca/Facebook. Please view them and purchase them for they are anointed of God to bless, encourage and enrich your lives by giving or receiving a card from my distinct line. You can find me also at The Rose Garden Prayer & Bible Study for Women on Facebook. Blessings!
