Will using my own book in a hub 'Write and Publish your first book' amount to self promotion?
My book, 'The People of the Land' is scheduled for publication on 3/12, and will shortly afterwards be available on amazon and Barnes and Noble among other outlets, in both hard copy and ebook.
The series of 3 hubs - General, Fiction, and Non-fiction - will be solely and exclusively concerned with relating my experiences from conception to publication. However, I have the impression that some hubs could be disallowed if they are thought to promote the writer's work.
Africanus-Congratulations to you! I understand your concern, but technically, each time we post a new hub and ask for our followers to read it we are promoting our own work. Right? I've seen many hubbers advertise their book within their profile. As for overly promoting, I don't have a published work yet, however, I would put it in a hub and add other unbiased material to it to balance it.
Additionally, there are other hubbers who have written work and I would suggest contacting them for their experience: VietnamVet; Bobbirant; Saddlerider1; Eiddwenna; SunnieDay are a few that come to my mind.
And, finally, when in doubt ask the hubber team and if they don't have the answer do it and see what comes out of it. There is more than one way to reach your goal. Good luck
I think you can because there is an optional box to tick, that asks if the Hub is Commercial when you are preparing your Hub. I promote ebooks on some of my Hubs, but as Denise advised - you can contact the Hub Team.
Ps. I just remembered - Pete Maida is a Hubber I have known for over 2 years. At the end of all his Hubs, he always puts his Books from Amazon. Just checked it now and it's still there. Check his latest Hub http://petemaida.hubpages.com/hub/Socia … -the-Young

What is the shortest amount of time it ever took you to write a Hub?Did that Hub receive a score of at least 80 - 85?

I really have not notice necessarily having a higher scoring hub when using my own photos even though I know they are good quality photos. I think it really is more about the article apparently after doing dozens and...

Can I publish a book using my own hub material?

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't find the answer. If I have written on HubPages am I allowed to publish that hub on another site? I may alter it a little to make it shorter, but it would basically be the...

Dear hub pages. I got on my account today only to find my blogs about my movie's kickstarter <link snipped> and my rant about kickstarter have been deleted (or removed) by hub pages. So now you guys are going to...
