Make money by publishing a book

Updated on May 28, 2008

Writers did you know you can publish your own books, books in print and e-books. Thanks to the World Wide Web publishing your work whether it is the greatest novel you've ever written or a how Easy tools online give a aspiring writer ways to get their words to the public with out having to wait and wait for responses from publisher.

I have been a long time poet and over the years have had great reviews about my poem but..........when I found out just how difficult it can be to get published, especially for a poet I decided I wasn't even going to try. Now with the wonderful world at the tips of my fingers my first book of poetry will soon be available.

It didn't take long to put my stuff together and get a photo cover, the only problem was converting my files to a PDF file, but eventually I found an easy way. After up loading my stuff and purchasing the proof I am almost ready to share my poems with the coming weeks I will add a link to view or purchase my book.
