Hi, I'm Ella Shawn

Posted by EllaEnchanted Apr 11, 2018

Good evening fellow authors.  This is my first time on one of the CreateSpace communities.  I'm a new romance writer and I'm waiting on my proof copy of my first book.  I would by lying if I said I wasn't a lot nervous and a bit overwhelmed by all of this.  I've been trying to set up my platform, come up with my brand and learn how to become an internet marketing genious all while working on the second book in the series.

 

I guess you could say I'm an over-achiever, but really aren't all of us who dare to write and share our books with the world?  I am looking forward to connecting with others who share my passion for writing and learning.  I hope to give as good as I get.

 

I am looking for people to read and write reveiws of my novel on my Goodreads and Amazon page... if I could just figure out how to get my pages set up.  If you're interested in reading and reveiwing for me, please email me or respond to my post.

Melody Writes

Posted by bayoumel Mar 28, 2018

I've got quite a few poems edited and most in hardcopy, but all, digitally.  This is my first inkling that there is even a self-publishing service on Amazon or anywhere that makes it possible for those who have not submitted work elsewhere to just get it out there.  I live in Portland, Oregon and I am originally from Los Angeles where I raised my two sons to their passions.  I have wanted to start a WordPress Blog in the past and could not move forward due to ALL of the tech stuff........I have Aspergers, and don't really have the ability to make sense of how to do that end of things.  I can write.......pictures make ALOT of sense to me  :-)    I'm fearful that even in this scenario, I will be taking time and energy to gather some material together and then will not be able to make sense of how to set it up with a "cover" and all the various little things that to me..........are NOT art. 

 

IS this POSSIBLE to be unskilled at that part of things.....are the prompts given here, enough?  And what happens to material I put in a book here?  Is copyright an issue?  Can I use this material in something larger somewhere else at some point? 

 

 


I need to have instructions practically spelled out for me.   But, really, I CAN write  :-)        

 

 

Nice to connect,

Melody

Applied Wisdom by StoweMan

Posted by StoweMan Mar 3, 2018

Greetings fellow scribes!  I am excited to be onboard this wonderful site! I am new to the site and have just completed ordering the proof for my first CreateSpace project, called "Miracle Baby - Minister Man".  What does the title make you think or feel?  Does the title intrigue you or no?

Thanks in advance!

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.

Hey Everybody! Myname is Sasha and I am the owner of Virtuous Queens Publishig. I have been writing on and off for years, and havefinally completed my first book! 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
