I've published either as author or editor 24 books or so. Just a few titles: Breaking Through the Clouds (Pruett, 2005), Colorado River Reader (University of Utah Press, 2000), Critical Perspectives on Native American Fiction (Three Continents Press, 1993, 1997), Deep Woods (Syracuse University Press, 1996), Clearing of the Mist (Dustbooks, 1979)....... etc etc.
Four on HubPages, a fifth privately entitled "If", two others ready to publish this year.
The four on HubPages: "Can You Find It...The Original Church of Jesus Christ", "Snowpuff and Bolo, The Story of Mrs. Santa's Dog", "The Curious Tale of Curious Quentin Quail", and "Biography: Once Upon A Throne (Parts I-V)" The two in process are a collection of poems, and an adventure/thriller. More on those later. Another is started on HubPages: "Zanadura - 2 Leagues" with only the first chapter setting the scene.
Curious? Do you publish one chapter per hub?
Not usually. Zanadura is a departure from what I normally write and I wanted to see what Hubbers might think of it.
Great projects. Hope you do some sales on all of these books!
I have published one ebook on smashwords.com. It was easy to do, but I have only sold 14 books. It is hard to get any promotion going without money. I mostly used my facebook to get what sales I did. But it is still there waiting for some movie director or book agent to discover and maybe I will make money then!
Dah! The title of my book is "Flute and Fire"!
Yes, I've been told also that writing the book is the easy part! LOL! I'm in the process of sending mine out a few book reviewers. I also joined a group in my area called Author! Author! on meetup.com Authors network and offer marketing tips.
Congratulations on publishing your ebook! I hope you have been discovered and that sales have increased.
I have published two ebooks - Those Youthful Days; Its Different Now, one paperback - Motherless Children and Other Stories; one ebook soon to be published. I have edited and published on behalf of my daughters -Life Love and Laughter by Jamesa J Fabien; From "What! No Cheese? to What Might Have Been by Jenel J Fabien; Lighter Days and Brighter Moments by Jenel and Jamesa Fabien. Soon to be published, Memories, Magic and Marshmallows by Jamesa J Fabien. What about you starsstream, are you into books as well? If so maybe we could read each other's books.
Just one, A Distant Calling. It is both a hardcopy book and an ebook. Adventure romance, G-rated.
I just published a self-help relationship advice book through Amazon's CreateSpace titled
"My Cat Won't Bark! (A Relationship Epiphany)". I have an idea for another one but I will probably wait a year before writing it. As one person once told me, "writing the book is the easy part". It's the selling or rather the promoting the book that separates best sellers from the bargain basement. My book is available in both paperback and Kindle version.
I am so glad you told us about this book you wrote. "My Cat Won't Bark".
I agree with dashingscorpio: writing the book is the easy part. When it comes to marketing a book and keeping it alive you're in it for the long haul.
Starstream, You never stated whether or not you published a book yourself. Have you? If so what is the title?. This was a good question you asked. I think I will post a hub regarding my self-publishing experience to date. :-)
I haven't published any books, but I pubslih short stories in here. I have six novels and hoping to publish them here. The titles are Paddy Moore, Pamela the Country Girl, The Last of the WarLord and many more.........
You could read some of my short stories, articles, poems and crafts.
Yes, I have published one e-book. It's called...Boricua....A Puerto Rican love story which is available on Amazon. Publishing an e-book is free if you know what to do. It is a lot of work but in the long run---Rewarding!
I self-published my book "Fear of Writing" in 2000, with a second edition in 2003. I was very shy when my book was first released . . . finding myriad ways to get my book into the hands of writers who would use my method helped me come out of my hermit crab shell. I have met a lot of wonderful people, made new friends and gained many new skills, all because of being an author.

Which is more important for a self published author, physical or ebook copies?Both have advantages: ebooks aren't limited by stock or location and are generally cheaper. Physical books can sit on the shelves of local bookstores and can be handed to interested parties who aren't tech-savvy. But,...

So I've worked on my novel for the past 3 years, finally buckled down and finished it this year. Just recently published it on Amazon Kindle, and I'm so very excited about it. The thing is, I don't know how to promote myself in the best way. And I don't have a ton of $$$ to spend on website design...

How much is too much to pay for a Kindle book?I buy and read a lot of digital books. One thing that really irks me is when the price of them is similar to or even higher than the physical version. I have also seen new, self-published authors put pretty high prices on their debut novels ($9.99 and...

Who here is interested in starting a discussion group for those of us caught up in promoting our books? Self-published, indie-published or traditionally published, all authors need to self-promote. Let's share our experience. Let's work together.
