    redrider6612: The Amazon promo on your profile page is still not right, it doesn't show your book.
    July 26, 2013 at 7:46PM

beccabootie123: Finally my book is now on amazon for purchase thank you to all at FS and enjoy.
July 18, 2013 at 2:45PM
    redrider6612: You need to fix the Amazon promo for your book on your profile page, it doesn't show your book.

    William Walz: Congratulations. I hope it does well.

beccabootie123: Well I got the final proof for my book and ordered the publishing will be ready for order or digital download from in 7-10 days. hard chemo rounds so marketing will have to wait till next month, I would appreciate it if you order it and enjoy it to pass the word.

beccabootie123: just approved the final markup of my book it should hit the shelves in two weeks. what a process it has been maddening at times. be aware with createspace they do not offer the trim size that is typical paperback 4x5 or thereabouts if anyone is going to that process. they will let you have that size but then for some reason they will not market it on their site. don't know why. my best to all. adele neb how are you

    alexgeorge: Adele, that's awesome!

    Good luck with publishing,

    May 12, 2013 at 2:24PM

beccabootie123: well my book is done, its gone through two edits and now someone is just doing a final read through to see if it flows. I hope so. I hope to get it to publisher on monday or tuesday of this week. they say it should be released four weeks after since the editing is done. I hope I am well enough to market, have set up a signing at career day for the local nursing college from which I graduated. but of late chemo has been kicking my butt. I will let everyone know when it is released, I acknowledge fs website in the dedication. Adele beccabootie

    mermaids: Hi fellow nurse! I am following your advice and will begin to write some nursing stories to send to you. Today I had a bad morning at work and then the lights went on in my head! I wasn't having a bad morning, I was having a day of work to write about. Talk to you soon. Elaine

    beccabootie123: if you would like alittle extra something to read I can send another excerpt to you! trying to finish but I keep adding then lose where I left off. I put things in a folder I call final completed book now I have four of those folders. after a while it gets hard to keep it straight. advice: put your stuff in a binder from the get go to keep it all straight. have a hoppy easter. adele

beccabootie123: I found out its the certificate you choose that awards more points.
March 11, 2013 at 10:19AM
    redrider6612: "Reader's Pick of the Week" also adds points. But who cares about points? You can't spend points. All they do is push you up the reviewing ranks, and the reviewing ranks are worthless.
    March 11, 2013 at 11:02AM

beccabootie123: how do you offer more points for a writing that you post
March 9, 2013 at 1:29PM
    Debra White: I have been wondering the same thing! Thanks for asking! x
    March 9, 2013 at 2:57PM
    nor84: Nobody cares about points, which are offered by the certificates. So, buy a certificate when you post your work and add a few member cent pumps to increase the member dollar payout to the reviewer. We do care about member dollars.

beccabootie123: thank you to all who have commented on my chapter, I will take the instruction and add alittle more embellishment.

beccabootie123: Just for my own information: is there a possibility that once I publish my book through author house that I will not make a penny? do you suggest another publisher?
all feedback appreciated
February 21, 2013 at 5:12PM
    redrider6612: Authorhouse is notorious for failing to pay royalties. Run their name with the word "scam" and you will find numerous items.
    February 21, 2013 at 5:49PM
    nor84: Do your homework regarding any publisher. Check Preditors and Editors website before signing up. Query the publisher name with the word scam.

    If you self-publish with ANYBODY, it's probable you won't make your money back unless you work to promote your book.
    February 21, 2013 at 6:28PM
    unimatrix001: The golden rule of publishing is "money flows to the author," which means the author should not pay a publisher to have thier work published.
    If you are going to self publish, then you have to really do your homework. One successful self publisher I know, ensures sales through libraries.
    Talk to writers who self publish if that is the route you want to take. Don't talk to publishers or agents. Writers who have been successful is the only honest source.
    Conventions are good places to meeting successful writers, as they will be there holding panels and promoting their work.

    Danicm: I self published on createspace. You get a portion of your list price, but they do pay you.. and it was so easy, that I was able to do it;)
    February 25, 2013 at 11:12AM
    vapros: I'm reluctant to go into this. The publisher you mentioned - is this one of the vanity presses, where you have to pay to have your book published? If so, your chances are not good, as a lot of them don't offer the services an author needs. They don't do your editing, or even your proofreading, and no promotion to speak of. All they do is print and bind. I hope this is not what you are facing, but for many, many writers, this is the only way they will ever see their work in print. Good luck.

    Rmocruz: I self-published a poetry collection seven years ago
    through Authorhouse.
    It was not successful.
    I do not wish to discourage you.
    You must be in a financial position
    To afford to promote it, especially
    if is your first book and you are unknown.
    Sincerely, Rich.
