Thanks! I'm glad to have found this website and looking forward to posting some of my poetry. Threw numerous hours of searching I found the site. I am really looking forward to new advice and meeting good people who would be glad to help me. If you have any advice I'm a young aspiring poet that will absorb anything that may be helpful. Thank you hope to hear from you soon.
Many thanks for the welcome! I was actually searching for ways to reach out and help the sales of my novels and this came up. I signed up immediately after seeing that there was so much going on that would not only help with sales but would help with my writing and the process of it all together.
Hi, thanks for the welcome. My first book is a young adult fiction. Its called the Pact. Yeah, I found out after it was published that there is another one out there, but to behonest it couldn't be called anything else anyway. https://www.createspace.com/3560279 I liked the characters so much that I wrote 6 more in the series (we'll young adults grow up, don't they) and in the process of a seventh. I've writen another young adult fixtion and am half way through a police drama. Since there is nothing but commercials on TV I find I've been writing to kill some time. I came across authors.com when i was looking for a way to advertise my work. I signe up in hopes of finding tips on how to get it out there. Also I'm basically a shy person and find it hard to talk to other and even try and explain my book to others. Hopefully this site can help me get over that also.
Perhaps now that April 27 has long gone, we will have time to get back with the groups...it is have been a struggle here as of late...of course another book or two has been published and if you would like to check them out they are all on Amazon.com under my name Thomas J Ault, or you can find me on Createspace.com as well.....then there is the http://thomasault.webs.com....Hope to have you on board on that site too.
I am really interested in finding an agent who will take on a self-published author. I am published with PublishAmerica and I know that I have made a horrible mistake in doing this but ... hey ... what is an author to do when she doesn't have an agent on her side to help her with all of the "hidden phrases" in the contract. I live with in a "stone's throw" of Richmond, Va. If you have any suggestions, I would really appreciate. I have published 3 books with PA and have a 4th one ready to go but do not know what to do with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In other words ... HELP!!!! Thank you, Drue"Dee" Miller
Thank you for the warm welcome! Everyone has been very nice and welcoming. I stumbled across Authors.com in my research. I am a recent self-published author of the mystery-crime novel Trained To Kill - A Detective Oliver Rousseau Novel. I am in the process of writing two other books, How To Publish A Book In 5 Days (which is really a "How To" manual), and Unsuspecting - the 2nd book in the Oliver Rousseau series. Authors.com provided me with research for my "How To" manual. One of the points I make in the manual is asking other published authors to read and write a review on a newly published author's book. Reviews are critical for self-published author's success (and any author, really), and a great place to begin the review journey is here, where so many authors are available. I make mention of Authors.com in my manual and what a great place it is for authors to connect. I honestly cannot say enough good things about the wealth of information available here. So much knowledge and experience for beginners, and the veteran writers, too. I think of Authors.com as a place for sharing.
thanks for the question kay,but i joined wanting to meet and interact with fellow authors also am willing to learn more from other people fascinated by books like me aint this the right place to meet new friends and share ideas on writing?Is this the right place to meet new books and bookmen kay?
Thanks for the welcome. I'm the world worst social networker so I'm having trouble keeping up with the different sites and groups I've recently joined. I'll make my way over to that thread you suggested asap.
Hello, thank you for the welcoming. I heard about Authors.com through and email from the Author Cynthia Townley (Trained to Kill-A Oliver Rousseau Novel, How to Publish a Book in 5 Days, and Unsuspecting TBR; all of which are ebooks). I work with her in helping promote and edit her ebooks. I am currently looking for bloggers to read and post reviews on Trained to Kill and I found this site to be full of book lovers of all kinds!! If you or someone you know would be interested in reading Trained to Kill, please contact me and I would be happy to give access to a free download of the novel. Her ebooks are available at Amazon.com, B&N.com and Smashwords.com. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you again for the welcoming to this site!!
Hi, Kay! Nice to meet you! I am always interested in doing giveaways and you know, as a publisher, I'll take jsut about any review I can get for my authors. Please let me know the details and we'll get something going right away! Comfort Publishing also has a Publisher's page on Goodreads.com and we run several giveaways there as well!
Hi! I will find out about the state wide competition some time in the next couple of months and the Writer's Digest competition for short stories and poetry won't be until late next summer. I am excited about them. For me, it isn't about winning, (although that would be nice!) it's more about just entering. That's just a huge step for me in itself. Kinda like joining this site. :)
