    Hi Folks,i am quite new to Hubpage but so far so good bcos i find it quite interesting here,i don't actually know if most folks know of my existence but here i am.

    I am Rossi Mobis and i am so pleased to be here so common guys help me out.

    I have quite a collection of poems,songs and short stories in my wallet,carefully written by me and most were inspired by my everyday life event and the environment.As a matter of fact, i don't know how to make this work but i want to get some of my stories and others works together in one hard cover so is it possible to have about ten short stories,couple of poems,songs and one two other notes about any issue published in one booklet?

    Will this be a kind of magazine,story book or inspirational book?

    How do i go about this?
    I will be glad if someone find it pleasing to help me out.A piece of my poem is right here below.


    Daddy told me a story of the prodigal son
    He also told me a story of David
    One day, Mummy told me about king Solomon
    In school,our teacher told us the story of Sampson
    I heard about Jesus from the preacher
    Their stories were so sweet that i always want to hear one.

    One day i had a dream and was terrified
    I was a little boy learning from my elders
    But in my dream,i saw a man gladdened on white regalia
    He had blood stains all over him and people were mocking him
    He looked weak and sober
    He looked thirsty and helpless
    He was crying a big cross

    I stood from afar and watched the crowd despise him
    They were beating,spiting and hitting him
    Some were throwing dirt at him
    I felt sorry for him but could not help him
    They got near a mountain and stopped
    Everyone was chanting down at him
    Then someone threw a spear at him

    I felt the pain in my heart so i cried for this man
    They nailed him to the cross and left him to die
    I looked up and saw the blue sky turn Grey
    The sun slipped away and it became cloudy
    I wished i could save or help this man
    So i knelt down and prayed to God
    Because i remembered all the stories i heard

    Then i saw a shinning face that looked like that of a man
    I could not look at it because it was very bright
    There was a crown on his head so i thought it was GOD
    Help this man i pleaded but this image i saw which was God like

    Turned away
    Abandoned me
    Tears in Heaven
    Tears of the Angels

    I watched this man die so i woke up terrified
    I told Daddy my dream
    I told mummy my dream
    I told teacher my dream
    I told the preacher my dream
    It became my story

    They all told me that it was the Savior and he died for me.
    He gave his all that i might wake and tell my story
    He died that i might live to write this today
    He rose from death that i might be free from bondage
    He gave his all and carried the cross for my salvation
    He suffered for you and me

    I saw the Savior
    He died for you and me
    He gave his all that we will be saved
    Praise be to God our God.

      Hi, I write poetry and short stories often too and have wondered the same thing. There are sites that list publishers and you can visit their sites and email them some of your work etc. and they'll probably let you know if they are interested in you. I heard that Amazon has a publishing feature? But I couldn't confirm that. I'm hoping to get at least a reasonable number of people to know who I am before I attempt publication or I'll make a huge loss. Sorry I couldn't help more! In fact I am in almost the same position as you...

    Hi Rossi and Welcome! Glad to meet you. You have 26 hubs in only 9 days, wow! You're off to a great start. I will keep watch for the answers because I don't know them and I want to know, too.

    Read my hub, Confessions of an Indie Writer, to get complete details on having a book created on a shoestring budget. I believe that Lulu may even create hard backs, but I'm not sure. Promoting the book is yet another issue. jael

    If you want to gather your writing in a hardbound book I suggest going with lulu (lulu.com). They allow you to publish paperback and hardcover books (also downloads). And it is free to publish with them, which is awesome. I've done a number of books with lulu and they did not disappoint me.
