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.

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

I'm new!!!

Posted by ChelbyT Dec 15, 2017

Good morning!!

 

I just wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Patty, but I use the pen name Chelby Tannon.  I just published my first book "Where In the **** Is Jamestown North Dakota?" in November, and am currently working on the sequel, "Where In the **** Is Roxborough Colorado?"

 

I am learning very quickly that marketing a book is the hardest part of this adventure, and would like some pointers if anyone has anything more to share.  I have advertised on Instagram, Facebook, I have sponsered ads on Amazon, and put myself out there on awesomegang.com and goodreads.com. 

 

I am also learning that no one wants to review your book.  I have begged for reviews from people who have personally contacted me telling me their thoughts about the book.  They all promise, and yet, I only have two.  I get no one thinks about reviewing things that they actually enjoy so I don't harrass anyone but I'm desparate to get more reviews so that not only do I learn from my mistakes, but so that people who click on my book see that more than 2 people read it.

 

Thoughts?

 

Suggestions?

 

I'm wide open to any feedback.

 

Thank you all, I am really enjoying my new found life as a legitimate published author.

The sense of accomplishment is overwhelming to me.  I have raised 4 girls, worked full time, and gone back to college but this first book, is on a level all of its own.  I never want to read it ever again, but I will always protect, cherish, and defend it.  It is mine.

I will be publishing the book in late Septemeber. I am on here to network with other like minded authors to build relationships, and lasting friendships. It is in my plan to start publishing books for other female authors but I am not sure about the legalities and how the authors are to be paid. It is my dream to pblish my own books and help other women shre their stories as well. So if anyone knows what steps i need to take to publish other authors please contact me! I am really excited about that. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi!

You guys havea blessed day!

Hello Everyone . . .

Posted by MusicLover Jul 11, 2017

This is my first message to this community. I am very happy to be here and make friends with writers who have this passion to write and spread messages that will help humanity. I have a history of professional musical performance, mostly classical and Church work, orchestras, chamber music, etc. It was fun while it lasted but now I am older and interests have expanded. I have this urge to write about things that really count in life, like faith in God, etc. I would love to hear from folks who have these things in common and make friends.

First thank you for the suggestion to creat an Author's page, http://www.richardmathews.net

 

Secondly, wanted to quickly note how greatly I've appreciated posts as well as replies which have occurred from Community.

 

Unlike the highly talented, truly outstanding Author's present here, I am only a story teller.

 

Someone looking back on nearly a six decade journey enjoying what time I have left.

 

Finally took your advice posting a half dozen previews to various titiles.

 

In FULL DISCLOURE, all my e-books are offerred for Free quarterly.

 

Createspace and KDP made one of my last dreams come true.

 

As a cancer survivor, I'm just trying to share what I learned.

 

Peace be with you.

 

Semper FI

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
