    You are welcome to follow along as my own publishing company works the magic of marketing my self-published books toward the mainstream with inevitable detours along the way.  It will be interesting and exciting. (This one is 558 pages, self-edited, covers self-designed, and worth the efforts because I learned a lot.  As with foreign languages, the next one will be easier having done the last one.
    We don't write them just for family and to see the extra copies sitting on a shelf somewhere.
    Best wishes to all Hubbers traveling the same road and other routes to getting their own book sales.

    Congrats!  I'm starting my fifth self-published book and like you, I've learned a great deal along the way.  Would I have more sales if I'd gone the professional editor route?  Possibly?  But I've watched other authors dole out the big bucks and have no more sales than me to show for their investment.  There is so much help out there.  The publishing world has really changed.

    I must give credit where credit is due.  A couple of hubbers here at HP have generously served as editors for me on my last two books, and I can't imagine better suggestions and keener eyes than they have.  Can't thank them enough!

      It's always, always good to give credit where credit is due, and you've done it nicely here.
      I think it's a rip that an SAN costs 174 dollars for a company to send me a number.  Free speech?  Hardly free, is it!
