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

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.

This is my first book. I've written a beginners handbook about Bitcoin - the digital currency. I'm just getting started editing my manuscript using the editing services of CS.

 

I'm looking for tips on editing, distribution and marketing. Im doing Amazon Kindle and paperback. I expect release in 60 days or so.

 

I'm also looking for reviewers.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thank you.

It was cheaper to drive.

the couple said it was cheaper to drive to your town for the book than to buy it directly from the company.

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.

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.

Brain Waves

Posted by howaboutpinhead Sep 26, 2016

When you have been around for a while, you will have seen more than a few declarations touting wondrous breakthroughs for turbocharging your brain function. Given the pervasive allure of improved mental capacity, these various claims usually resonate with the general public. After all, who wouldn't want to be able to bend a spoon by just looking at it.   

 

As many of you have come to know, howaboutpinhead is all about supporting the independent author community. In keeping with that recently stated goal, it seemed appropriate to share with you the little trick I use to boost my brain wave activity.   

 

First find a quiet place, preferably a dark quiet place. Then concentrate on the left or right side of your head. It doesn't matter which side you choose first. Next, think of the matter inside that side of your cranium as a semi-fluid and visualize moving it all to the other side of your head. Then perform the same function in reverse. I find it is most effective to repeat this four or five times. If you are doing it right, you will actually perceive a little spark in your closed eyes. No kidding, this really happens. At least it happens to me.  (Caution: Be sure to alternate left and right.)   

 

You will find that this exercise really does work, but you need to be careful with what the process might dredge up. Last time I performed the procedure I remembered Dialogue One from my first year Spanish textbook and my seventh grade locker combination.   

 

This is sadly the last of my eclectic blogs for the time being. The next few will be focused on flogging my upcoming book "Heiding Fortunes, Feinding Truths", which is nearly ready to publish. So I will now revert to "Flogging through Blogging". In contrast to my prior books, this upcoming title will not rely on humor to deliver its message. Good thing I have conditioned you to a profound absence of humor through continued exposure to my previous blogs.   

 

Of course, my first two books are still available for the scant few of you who have yet to purchase your copy. Be advised, I am considering a cover change for "The Other Side of the Kneeler". Something more funeral home appropriate perhaps. So you might want to act now, as the current version will someday be cherished as a collector's edition. There is no such modification currently planned for "Tempest's Arc". Should that change, you will be notified accordingly.   

 

BTW, before you put too much stock in my brain enhancer, be advised, yesterday I wasn't able to locate my car keys.

I felt it appropriate to extend my gratitude. ~ thanks all!!!
