Published my own novel

    Since I have graduated from college with no prospects of finding employment, I took a chance and started writing. Writing was just an escape, a place where I could find some sanity while the government hands out billions of dollars to corrupt banks and American companies like Coca-Cola build factories in China and give foreigners jobs meanwhile more Americans continue to be laid off from work. Needless to say, my writing became my refuge and eventually before I knew it, my work was forming itself into a novel. I have several chapters available as hubs to read on my profile - check them out if you like. I decided to self-publish my work instead of waiting around for someone else to decide if my work was great or not. Copies are available on Amazon

      Good for you, publishing your own book. I did the same and have done so also with my co-author. It's a great experience. Now, for the promotion!
      Good luck with your writing!

    I read your post and thought "That's what I should do." You should write a hub on how to self-publish. I have writings in the works and would love advice on how to self-publish.

    That is so wonderful!  I had thought of self-publishing, but I thought it would be too much work trying to market. I did read a bit of information on it and you earn more when you self-publish.  I would like to know the process.  It might be better than waiting for an agent to pick you up.

    If you want to sell the book it might help to tell us what the title is....
