Anyone who has followed Greg over the years already knows what a great writer he is. His talent, positive attitude, and perseverance will carry him to unexplored heights. Let his example serve us all as a source of inspiration.
Yesterday, I ordered my copy through createspace and it arrived today, even though I did not ask for overnight shipping. Link to eStore: https://www.createspace.com/3816684 Amazon and Barnes and Noble will have the book available shortly, in both Kindle and hard copy.
I never get tired of saying what a great community Hubpages is. We support and encourage each other to continue down this uncertain path of creativity. I wish you much luck, Greg. Let Destiny do its thing, and hopefully we'll still see you around once you are famous!
Now, you will excuse me... I'm going back to my reading. I can't put this book down, seriously!
I also self published with createspace. Seriously, though, I sell far more ebooks than I do on createspace. Actually, I've only sold one on createspace, but have lost count on what I've sold through nook and kindle.
Through Kindle Direct Publishing or some other? Just curious. I had a friend who has done this, and this is what made me want to pull my books out of the e-closet and publish them. He's done several e-books on KDP for .99 each and they do quite well.
Mine should be on B&N as well. I was originally planning to wait until all the distribution channels were up to announce, but I have this awesome cheerleader who planted the seed I should just go for it! Likely within the week it should have the remaining distribution channels, including Kindle.
Sophia, do you publish under your name, or some other? I'll look you up.
Klara is just an incredible friend and cheerleader! What can I say? Thank you for the support. I've been keeping my head down, not realizing launching this into the ether is probably a significant event.
I too love the sense of community on HP; thank you all for being so supportive!
Congradulations, gerg. As I've just recently discovered your writing, I'll be looking at more of you hubs soon. I'm happy for your success and dream of a day when I can get my books out there. Your an inspiration to many of us here on the hub. Will check out your hub about your novel right away.
Well, you know how it is, TK. If I beam, then you beam, then Greg beams, Habee beams, and we end up looking like a Christmas tree, with beaming all over the place! I have faith that you'll be next. I know it's in the works, or should I say out the door already? You need to give me the details. I want to hear all about it.
Gerg, who would have thought that spending time alone with you would be so much fun! Lol It's definitely you... it reads like you! I might have to get another copy as a collector's item with your signature and dedication, of course! I'm estimating finishing it by Monday or Tuesday the latest. Wonderful... wonderful... wonderful! What a plot! BRAVO, my friend! I'm so proud of you!!!
