I am very new at all of this so I know that I am doing absolutely horrible at all of this. Please forgive my errors and

give me the benefit of the doubt.  I am really "dumb" on a computer and only know how to answer mail and write books.  Thank you.  Drue "Dee" Miller

Hi, Scribbler:

Nice to meet you, too.  This site is the best forum that I have ever associated myself with.  I have been on quite a few ... Authorsden ... for an example ... but it is nothing like this one.  My congrats to whoever started this one!!!  I will, also, look forward to getting to know you better.

Dee, that's such a lovely compliment about! I'm sure all the regulars and the admin will be delighted to see that. The best way to give back is to invite others along, like you did with Theophenie, and interact with other members. It keeps things lively and it's nice to take a minute to comment on someone's blog or forum post. It really does help keep the true sense of community spirit, of us pulling together to help each other, alive. :) That's what I do anyway. :)

Thank you, Kay Elizabeth:

That's such a nice thing that you said to me, too.  I have taken Matt's advice ... if he is "on board", too, and contacted I am so leary of publishers now that I am, almost, afraid to go to anyone.  I've be burned by and now PA.  Like the old saying: "burn me once ..,. shame on you ... burn me twice ... shame on me." Okay ... I've been burned twice.  I just don't know where to go or what to do next.  I'm not young anymore, I'm 66 but I love to write.  My 4th book is finished, "Road Show" a mystery/suspense, and I am well into the sequel to "Nightmares Come From Dreams" and "Rose of Thorns'.  My  daughter, Theophenie, the one who does my covers, calls it the "Dream Series". I will tell you why: the first book "Nightmares", was called "Dreams Are Made of  Nightmares" (published by iUniverse) but when I went with PA they made me change it to "Nightmares" and they did the cover (which I did not want them to do) but they did it anyway.  Also, the books all started as a real dream in real life.  I was pregnant with my oldest daughter (Denise) and had the first dream that started the whole thing.  I know how to write and anyone who has read my books say they are really good.  I have no problem writing,  I do not use outlines ... I just sit down at my computer and write.  I don't know how I do this.  I know there are a lot of people out there who do it the same way ... guess I am just lucky. The books in between the "Dreams Series" are mystery/suspense novels that are written the same way.  One is published ... "Here Kitty, Kitty" and the new one that is ready to go with cover from Theophenie is called "Road Show". That's the story of my life.

Createspace is a very great selfpublishing avenue, once you have your rights reverted back to you from PA, you'll be able to upload your books onto Amazon Kindle as well at no cost to you. Your able to set the price you'd like you can make up to 70% royalties. Or 35% percent depending on the cost you set for them. Your kindles will also be place on Amazon UK and Amazon Germany at no cost to you as well. Createspace will have your paperback listed on Amazon within a week after you upload your PDF file and Book Cover. You can find fantastic royalty free clip art for your cover on line at no cost or very little. Createspace offers differant size tinplates to use for your book as well 6by9 etc.. 

If you chose to purchase extended distribution it's only $39.00 per title this will make your book available for brick and mortar stores who choose to purchase it as well as other online stores as well. A sweet deal really. A lot less out of pocket expense for you the author. Hope this helps. But I'm pretty sure you have to get your rights reverted back to you, or Pa could come after you for breach of contract. Which my contract with them was for seven years. So I bought my book rights back and I'm now free and clear from PA. And they can no longer publish my books or sale them. Just the ones they had before I bought back my rights. But at their prices they won't make a dime off of them anyway! LOL

Have you looked into by-passing publishers in general? Just publishing the book yourself. You do not need a company to publish your novels, it is possible to do it yourself.....

She sure can use her covers, just copy and paste to their tin plate I used the 6 by 9 tin plate on my books.
