    Post your published books!

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by Kain, Jun 18, 2006.

    Are you a published writer and have a book that is available for purchase? List it here! Tell us, show us! Make it known! And if you like (and the site alllows) post a link to where we can buy it (either form the supposed upcoming bookstore or from amazon.com).

    So anyway, share your masterpieces.

    Well, I wish I could reply with some excellent novel I've created, but unfortunately, that's not the case quite yet.

    I have had some fictional work (poetry) published in 2 or 3 online magazines and done some freelance content writing on the web, but that's about it.

    I actually posted a computer help article on articlecity.com I believe. A few days later an editor from a magazine contacted me about using the free article in the publication. It wasn't much, but it was pretty nice to see something I wrote being mass printed.

    To date, I've only had one short story published on an ezine. I've got another two being published this month. But no novel. And I haven't even attempted a novel yet, as I don't want to waste my time. I'm sticking to short stories for the time being, learn my craft that way. I might attempt a novel once I'm at a respectable standard in my writing.

    Wise words Peter, short stories are the only thing for me at the moment.

    As said, wise words. This bit stood out to me. Basically, you're right. Writing is an investment, and you don't get the return unless you invest wisely. It's difficult.

    I'm not published yet but I am in the process of writing a fantasy novel right now and hoping to get published, but that's as close as I have gotten so far.

    Which one are you talking about? I have a couple in the making at the same time. I have a romance, and a few fantasy stories. The one I have the most progression on is Blade the Dragon Warrior (I want to change the name but my editor ((my best friend)) doesn't want me to.). It's about a young man named Seth who lives in a small town called Mrae Fortifur in the land of Quar. He learns that varders are after him, sent by the Dark Lord, and he must flee for his life. Upon the dying request of his friend he goes to Mrae Ludar where the Council of Dragons is and his tale starts there. ((that's the stuff that I'm keeping the same from my original version)) Blade is the name of a legendary hero who fought in a war long ago, and it is the name the warrior got from his dragon when she died from battle (but her name was in an ancient language that was long forgotten).

    That good enough? :p

    Cool. I've never been a fan of self-publishing, but if it works for you, great.

    Congrats Sedalia, your work looks very interesting! Have many copies been sold?

    And Congrats Peter, JimmyLane and Jackal! Jackal I've heard Lulu is pretty good, have you had many sales?

    Any of you make enough to be able to live off of your writing?

    I had a short story that was going to be published in an Ezine which never got going. Other than that, nothing.... nothing submitted, nothing published!

    Hi, all,

    I have three unrhymed poetry e-books and chapbooks and two rhymed poetry e-books and chapbooks up at
    http://thereadersretreat.com/Suzan_Wiener_free_poetry.html Their titles are: "The Essence of Love," Vol. I, II, III and "Poetry for Everyone" Vol. I and II.

    It's a great bookstore website to advertise your books and free to advertise your books too! Hope you'll have a chance to stop by.

    I'm what you can call "semi-published" with a poem I wrote off the cuff a few months ago. I don't yet know of any writing skill I may have so I have thrown it out to see what the experience will teach me.

    I'll know some more about it comes January 2007.

    Sedalia, I think 20,000 books is impressive. What kind of book is it?
