    I just published my first book thanks to so many on HubPages who were inspirations and supporters.  It was exciting and scary, but I did it!!!!!!

    Well Rgraf, if you come up with any great ideas please post it on here and let me know.  I've got two books I need to market.  Hey, I've just got an idea!  Why can't Hubpages set up an online shop on here, where hubbers who've published can offer their books for sale as ebooks or paperback copies.  Ebooks would be easy to set up and paperback copies would be linked to Amazon.  Maybe other hubbers can also sell editing and proofreading services!

    GM, have set up a separate request for this in this forum.  maybe if a whole lot of hubbers reply positively and show they support it, then it can be done!

    I read the description of your book on the website and it sounds great for kids.  My niece and nephew would love something like that.  Congrats RGraf!

      Dear Uninvited Writer (though you are always invited smile),
      I'm not adverse to a few reviews from fellow hubbers.  Anyone of my fellow hubbers that are established who would be willing to review it on their various blogs, I would consider sending a copy to.

    Wow.  Cool!  What was it on, RGraf?  I know you from your frugal living hubs...

    The book is a children's book (though most of the adults who read it enjoy it, too) about a mouse at the Last Supper watching the events.  It is a religious book though not overtly so.  I originally had it published here at HubPages.  The one who did the illustrations (a dear friend) loved the fact that I never mention any names or such and yet the story follows the original one.
