A Hubber Had A Book Published

    I understand that you are not supposed to self promote on Hub, but someone in management said it would be alright. Hopefully my book will inspire other Hubbers to write their own book. Hub can get known as, "the site where writers are born!" But I digress to my book.

    It is a story that my beloved father told me three times, in my teens, twenties and just past thirty. I recanted the story to him when I was about thirty-five. He couldn't believe I had rememered it, word for word. With a partner, a three-four minute story was embellished  inth two hundred and twelve.

    The story is about a cousin in NYC, in the early 1930's. She was a young innocent high school girl preparing to graduate. In those days most girl's wanted to marry, have kids and be a good homemaker. What happened to her was amazing. the book is filled with romance, adventure, deception, a cure and much more.

    "EYES OF EMERALD" can be found at  https://www.createspace.com/3490120

    Thank you,
    Harvey

      Congratulations Harvey.  I will indeed look for your book.  Is it available in all local book stores ? I too am attempting to write one as well as join the Hub society ( as much for inspiration as anything else. ) I can only imagine my own jubilation at such news.  If it ever gets released the title of my book is HONKY TONK WOMAN ( Yep, just like The Stone's song.)  Again congrats'

      Hi Harvey,
      I just published a book, too. And I thought you could not self-promote, so I haven't written anything on my hub.  I just published a children's book: "The Three Betty Goats Griff" It is on Amazon.com and will soon be available to book stores and libraries. Anyway, it is exciting to be published. Now the work of marketing .. . .

      Petra, That is a good idea, I haven't thought of that. I do ask anyone to write a review if they wish. I have no fear, except that I edited it with my partner. Neither of us were great English students. I will remember what you wrote. H

      Life, You cutie, I am thinking about making it a movie. I' ve already written ten, and my new agent will market them when the book settles down. As a writer I can only ask if they will see you, but I will push. Send me your tapes, you never know. rite me personally, and I'll give you my address. H

      Are you doing well? I do pray you are.

      arrow, Everyone needs a push. If I can do it, you can. My teachers always told me I couldn't write well; were they correct?

      Please see above, the book is now on Kindle.

      I loved writing it. H

        Harvey Stelmanposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Maddie, Thank you very much. I am glad to be recognized by the management of Hub, as well as being allowed to self promote. I would have written my Hub, and Forum differently had I been sure I would be permitted to post these.

        Had I written it differently, I'm sure I would have attracted a larger following.
        So it may have been my fault. If any of my movies are produced; would I be allowed to write that also? H
