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.

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

Hi,


I have been using CreateSpace since I first thought about creating a book in 2012.  What a wonderful opportunity they provide.  Not only do they offer us guidance about creating a cover, they offer us the opportunity to print and make a reasonable quality book at a very, very, minimal cost.  Then they connect us to the mammoth sales opportunities offered by Amazon.com and offer us a community to discuss with.  What could be better?  A publisher liked one of my ideas (Have You Seen My Daddy's 18 Wheeler?) but only wanted to offer me a self-publishing contract.  It made me feel vindicated, but I had to tell him "Thanks, but No Thanks ".


But, to describe me, I retired from full-time civil engineering in April, 2014.  I designed highways and by-ways, as well as other infrastructure improvements, I inspected their construction, I raised two wonderful daughters, and was an active Rotarian for more than 20 years.  Now my wife and I travel, I take lots of photographs, I constantly read and am beginning to cook, I provide some part-time civil engineering to a very select group of clients, and I write, write, write.  I love it .

 

Now I an spending time taking pictures of 18 Wheelers, contacting the owners to gain their approval, arranging them into a series of children's travel books, and trying to market them.  I titled them "Have You Seen My Daddy's 18 Wheeler?" (one book with 176 pictures and a story about what Daddy experiences) and "Have You Seen My 18 Wheeler?" (12 books with 19 pictures and area for recording information about the sighting).

 

I also make presentations to high school and college students who are considering civil engineering as their field of study - it is amazing how many of them really have no concrete idea about what we, as civil engineers, do for infrastructure construction.  I titled two different books "Russell Builds a Bridge" and "Russell Widens a Road".  And then, after my younger brother passed away, I created a biographical history about our mother for her grandchildren.  I titled it "What Did He Tell Her?" because the married life she lead as the wife of a share-cropping Iowa farmer did not fit with the New York City childhood she had before that marriage.  I thought it was a pretty unique story.

 

So, if you would preview, make comments about, and/or offer condolences about the books and my ideas, I would appreciate it.  If you want my input about your projects, please let me know what you are working on and how to find it and I will return the favor.

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

Need feedback

Posted by moonbeam7 Apr 18, 2017

I'm trying to improve my description for my book Unraveled. Would appreciate any and all feedback.

Alyson Pierce believed she was like any other seventeen year old girl. She wasn't. She believed her mother died giving birth, but Alyson was never born. Everything she knew was a lie. Betrayed by her "father", she sets out on a quest to find the truth. Instead, she finds a world where the distinction between right and wrong isn't always clear and the truth she seeks could be deadly.

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 wonderful folks,

 

I am relatively new to writing, having penned just two nonfiction books. With my first book, "If life is a game, THEN PLAY TO WIN!!!"I quickly realized that it takes way more than enthusiasm to produce a bestseller.

 

I have just penned my second and I am brimming with jolts of positive energy. It is called "The Fundamental Paradox: The Universe, Science and Religion", it falls into two sub-genres- Science/Philosophy and Religion (Religion and Science). It's available on amazon.com and other online retailers. https://www.amazon.com/Fundamental-Paradox-Universe-Science-Religion/dp/153559215X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478458119&sr=8-1&keywords=onyeka+uzoma+md

 

I really need marketing tips from more experienced writers, it would be an honor to hear from those who have successfully walked down this pathway.

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.
