Young authors?

Any out there? I'm seventeen and it seems that people are a little bit wither wary or judgemental of us (an observation, not a judgement, I don't claim to speak for everyone, just the people I've personally encountered!) I just wondered what are your thoughts... or are you one and what experieces have you had? Personally I've gotten a bit of a hard time but that's just how things have fallen out for me... perhaps people have been really sympathetic to you? Either way I thought it would be an…

Please help my cluelessness- ISBN numbers

Hello all,

Excuse my cluelessness but I'm self publishing my book in August through Blurb first and then going from there, but my formatter/editor and general handler of things I don't understand was talking to me about ISBN numbers... Now I understand that I need to pay around £126 for one!? I'm a student and recently lost my job and haven't found another one, so I can't exactly afford it right now. We have a plan but can somebody out there please explain the ISBN thing to me because…

In desperate need of help for EPQ novel!

Greetings , all! I'm writing a book for my Extended Project Qualification and I was wondering if any of you would be so kind as to give me your opinion on an excert. This is only from the first draft, so it's not perfect. It's a steampunk adventure about a girl who runs away on a pirate airship and finds herself in all kinds of strange situations! Just so you know, if you leave a comment here it could end up in my essay and presentation, but nothing more than that.…

A little advice?

Has anybody heard of these and would you recommend taking a look? I only stumbled across them through a link on deviantART, and being something of a new author, I don't quite know where to trust with my book, I'm very protective you see! Anyway, here's the link:…

Yay or Nay???

A little experiment of mine although it's a bit rough and could use some editing when I grab the chance... should I carry on?

Publishing. Tell me straight.

Hi all.

I was wondering how any of you writers went about publishing. You see, I've been browsing the Publishing houses myself and getting frustrated. I don't want to self publish/publish on kindle. As snobby as it sounds and as much as I love my kindle, I wanna make it a physical book. Also, I can't afford an agent, and loads of publishing houses don't take unsolicited submissions (which is really annoying)

 

 I just wanna know staright....like, publishing for dummies.…

Need some help again...

Hi all! I have a huge favour to ask of any of you if you have some spare time on your hands.

I have written a book, and I'm in the final stages of editing for grammar mistakes etc. I realised that I want to carry on the series (the second book is in progress at the moment), and as Dead Night is set in the year 1899, I think going too far into the 1900's will kill the atmosphere. So basically, I need an opinion; it is possible for me to drag the entire timeline back ten or twenty years…

Dead Night (unpublished)

Hi all!

I wonder if anyone would like to help me out? I'm fairly new here, and I've recently written a book (it's not a great paving slab of a thing, and is still in progress) and I'm thinking of perhaps trying to get published. The problem is, I don't really have an exact audience. I asked around my friends, and my best friend said that it was most likely a book for (particularly mad) teenagers, and another of them said it could be anything depending on how you thought about it…
