Hi, How you All doing?

 

Let me introduce myself to you, I'm a first-time Author, from Manchester England, This is the first ever Blog I've ever done - hope I get it right!  Anyway, I'm a busy Mother of 5 and have written a Series of 'Epic Fantasy Adventure Books' readership age (18+).  I'm shattered, to say the least, have any of you got any suggestions as to possible Marketing avenues I could consider.  I released Part one last month just weeks before Christmas and am looking forward to getting the first money I've earned later this month, after not earning a single penny since 2009. Yes, I'm sure it's been really hard for many of you too, trying to finish up your books and get the visions of your mind out there for all to read. Hope you'll enjoy mine 'AGES OF RAEKWON - Awakenings Arousal the Peoples Story'.  I never anticipated how hard it would be to follow through with the promotion or get people, to take me seriously. The saying              'do not judge a book by its cover', seems to also apply to them looking at me.  So, please tell me how you're finding it all, I'd love to hear your...Stories!

 

Best,

Clio-Mystery

Good afternoon.

 

My name is Andy and I just published my first book (Insomniacs, We). It a is a volume of poetry featuring poems written over the course of the last decade. I've been writing seriously since 2005, but didn't really have a focus for my writing until the Recession hit. I am very much interested in learning from the more seasoned writers here how to promote a book. I was so focus on the craft that I never learned the other end of self-publishing.

 

I hope to hear from some of you soon, as well as check out your work too.

 

Thanks.

MATRIX

Posted by BooksRUs Oct 5, 2017

What to do when your best friend has done the unthinkable turning your whole world into chaos? Leaving you to take the heat of his actions which makes you question everything you believed in.

 

Come be part of a time when the Angels fell from the very presence of God Himself, into a world of despair. This is the story of the ones who were undecided.

 

Also in Book 3 of the series: The Chilling Spine Series, SCI-FIED! Is a short story based on this book Matrix. To understand the characters in this story, it is advised to read the Matrix story in there first.

SOUND THE TRUMPETS

Posted by NOWTESTAMENT Oct 5, 2017

        This book is Jesus & the Holy Spirits 7 year communication

with me to introduce Gods language. I've never written a book so

this has been a real adventure. Jesus says this begins the "Now

Testament". Talking with God the Father and all the heavenly host

is now available. One of the problems I foresee; is overcoming the

religious dogma prevelent in todays world.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to create space for all their great help in publishing my books. After 50 in 5 years,I am taking a break. Of course, the books will always be there and I have to thank readers, whose great imaginations add so much to the stories. Where would authors be without the amazing readers whose imaginations take books to a new level. The great feedback, whether in person or in reviews, is what keeps writings struggling to put those words to paper. I am amazed by each person who reads one of my stories and thankful to all for the great support in the last five years. My health is bad,with a degenerating spine and arthritis, I have decided my writing long hand is over. So, maybe some day I will try using anohter dragon for the books. The last one I had got a little crazy and I slayed the thing. Mostly this post is a thank you to create space, readers and supporters. You made my dreams come true. A feat I never thought possible when I began. If you are a writer, good luck! If you are a reader, bless you and thanks. P.S. Winn

I'm trying to find a way to publish two short books. The pdfs for these books are on my computer desktop. Is there a way for me to drag the pdfs onto a platform here in create space and have an editor look at the books?

 

Thanks,

Henry Etta.

Hello, new Sci-Fi writer

Posted by Blackie_Chan Apr 16, 2017

Hello, everyone, my name is Justin Pyfrom and I'm a lover of all things Science Fiction and Video Games. I've been a lover of storywriting since I was in grad school and it followed me until I got my Bachelor's in Game Simulation and Programming. But, after a few failed projects, my best mate reminded me that EVERYBODY knows how to design a game but where I really shine is telling a compelling story and creating intriquing characters. With that, I was convinced to do what I really love and write stories that "bend minds". I'm hoping that I do them proud and learn more about myself in the process.

 

Please, any and all feedback is greatly appricated.

Just Landed ^i^

Posted by Ariael Dec 13, 2016

Hi. I'm Ariael.   I don't know why I am using a pseudonym. I usually don't do that but I am going with it. \

I have written and edited 10 Chapters of my most recent book. A fellow author told me about Create Space

for publishing. I am giving it a try.

Only one day of working with the program and I already have had to contact support.

First of all I don't use pdf files. Never have and probably never will. I am 56 years old and I don't want to learn a

new writing program!! Sometimes I think I should go back to my trusty IBM word processor and write a book

and submit it--on paper!! I would like that. Unfortunatelty that is not the world we live in.

So, as a writer who desires to be published, I journey on trying to learn new things all in an effort to get my book

out there for the readers it is intended to reach.

So, I don't do pdf files. Mine is in a docx format. So when I select the file and save it, it appears to be working. Then it

says I have 5 errors and I cannot edit the document. The only way I see to edit it is to go back to my original document and

make the changes and then reupload it. I was under the impression that I could upload and then edit, even finish the book

in create space.

I must be wrong or I can't figure it out.

I seriously don't know why I am writing this blog. I doubt anyone will read it and if they do they probably won't help. Ohm what a terrible attitude I

have about social media. lol

Anyway, I contacted tech support and await their answer.

I also want to upload my own pic for the cover but it is not in pdf either. It, of course, is a jpeg!! Why does everything have to be so complicated?? Good Grief!

Thanks for reading--I am going to read and try to learn to navigate this site. Here goes....

I usually don't complain this much in one post. lol

Hi, CreatSpace Friends

Posted by seasonedman Nov 21, 2016

Hi,

 

My name is Bob Whitney and live in Fleming Island, FL (for now).  I was fortunate to meet a man 23 years ago that changed my life.  His name was Dean Portinga; he passed away at age 89 January 1, 2016.  He was a spiritual man who attained a Doctorate of Theology along with a Doctorate in Philosophy.

 

He was the only person I knew for 23 years that I never once heard critisize, complain, or condemn anyone or anything.

 

Dean discovered early in his career that his life's purpose was to uncover how though and consciousness determained every aspect of our lives.  He discovered that answer after 60 years of research and we are releasing his first book, "A New Understanding of the Ten Commandments" on November 24th.

 

Thousands of people have taken his courses and heard him speak while on tour with Earl Nightengale (who called him ''the professor") and others of reknown.

 

My issue is with how to deal with the Author's page.  I only have one other book to publish along with hundreds of articles I discovered while going through his computer and files after his death.  Dean cared little for fame or money and never got around to publishing his material.  How do I make the Author's Page viable when there is no more content coming?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Bob

In the next few weeks I will be publishing my third work of fiction, "Heiding Fortunes, Feinding Truths", A Tale of Two Richards. The novel is dedicated to "Independent Authors Everywhere". This dedication was chosen because I believe the story touches the very soul that motivates many of us to take the time to do what we do.      

 

The work merges two accounts. The first, a Dickensian view of the world of wealth, poverty, inheritance and deception, featuring the life story of Richard Heiding. Its companion tale highlights Richard Feinding in a modern day treatise on the value of honesty, candid expression and truthful communication. The narratives are linked by the evolution of the clandestine enterprise which both men eventually serve.  The message for today; the proliferation of unbiased views that encourage people to think for themselves can elevate society to reach its full potential and make for a better world.      

 

The following is an excerpt in which Richard Feinding defends the value of his life's work: ..."Then of course, as with any message, unless you are just howling into the wind, someone must hear it. Perhaps it is the respect offered the newly deceased that cracks the door to that listening. That tiny window when people discharge their skepticism, allowing a transient passage for ideas to flow unencumbered, free from the harassing gauntlet of opinionated garble that can drown out honest communications. Call it a beachhead. Call it a base camp. It amounts to a miniscule fissure in an intractable boulder of granite. A fracture where a single seed is dropped by a passing winged courier. That seed will grow. Over time the roots will transform the boulder. Look around you James. You are a witness to all the benefit that this practice has brought to the world. Please don't ask me to qualify the value of the result further, by requiring me to find better words to define it."        

 

A few days before publishing, I will share the jacket cover blurb with you. I am hoping to get comments from any and all interest parties.            https://www.amazon.com/author/johnlack

I am a new author as of 2015. I was born in BountifuUtahuah and raised in Boardman Oregon. I finish my last year of High School in Chehalis WA. I know live in Olympia, WA. I use self-publish publishers to published my first children phonic adventure for ages 0-adult. ABC, 123, Color Animal KId. My second published book genre us adventure western fantasy sci-fi for ages 8-adult. Boys Adventures Through the Wild West; Ghost Town Adventures. I am in working progress of getting my third book published genre is children adventure fantasy for ages 0 to an adult. The Little Boys Beach Adventures; Little Boys Treasure Hunt Adventures. I am a student going on my 3rd year at a university. I am majoring in screenwriting BA.

 

When i write stories I feel like I'm walking with the characters in the books. I am always looking for new opportunities to find a writers job in freelancing or ghost writers. I am also looking for a writers grant to help me with the funds of my books to promote them for the audience to recognize my books. My goal is to have my books transformed into film.
