    Well HubPages friends, I finally wrote my book, "Seasons Change, So Can You." smile While surfing the Net, I saw it in a Barnes and Nobles ad. By the way I acknowledged HubPages in the acknowledgement section.

    That's great, fastfreta-- I've been wondering where you went.  Now I know you have been busy. Welcome back!

    That's great! I've got two tiny ebooks on Kindle, and "heavier" ebooks in the works. It's almost surreal to know you actually have a book out in the world that people will see and read for years to come. I wish you much success!

    Thanks guys! I also noticed that's it's translated into several languages. I saw French, German, Malaysia, Chinese, I think   Russian. I did Google Books, and checked under Indie books. Now let's hope I can make money, smile

      Congratulations!  Now you need to write a Hub about publishing your book.

        Thanks Writer Fox. I've started one, but my computer won't cooperate. It's doing some crazy jumping around thing, and it interupts my flow. Just waiting until I get it fixed or  a new one.

          I hate computer problems!  I really do hope you write a Hub about your publishing experience.  Who did the translations for you?

          1. fastfreta profile image75
            fastfretaposted 4 years agoin reply to this

            The publishers did it. I Published with LifeRich, a division of Readers Digest. By the way it is Print On Demand.

              Wow, that's a big investment to make.  I assumed you had published  free through Smashwords or Amazon or Lulu, but what you've done is a really big step.   I hope it does well for you.

                Oh no, my investment was not that big at all, nowhere near what it might seem. I didn't go for the big package. I actually see a return on my investment within the first month.
