The Lure of Easy Money in Publishing By: L. Avery Brown

Important Post

Hello, Serious Writers.

I know I've not been around a lot but I do pop in from time to time to see what's going on. Also, I like to clean up the main thread line where people post promotions and advertisements. Typically, I do this by informing the person who issued the post <why> the post has been deleted while letting them know that they are more than welcomed to repost in the proper thread.

And that, as they say, is that.... Show more


I read it. It looks very futural. And yet...who knows. It might be the future. Or simply a way to post and get hacked. As you said...need to wait to see where this leads to.
Personally. ..I feel that it's another way to be controlled by 'Big Brother'. First of all, using bitcoin... Show more


The future is wonderful...and scary.

No, you are correct in both assumptions. But not the paranoid part.

First, Bitcoin IS a way to get around not only the US government's way to collect taxes but also a way to get around the taxes imposed on digital purchases within certain US states and municipalities. As well as... Show more

Hello, my name is Ryan Church. I have created a website called A website whose sole purpose is to search out and publish the very best fiction currently being written today. I believe that my site could one day revolutionize the world of publishing. Now, I am sure you think this is, shall we say, unrealistic. Fair enough, but I still believe it. I don’t expect to become the only destination... Show more

Important Post

Lots of people have posted questions here about the best way to get our books out there in terms of marketing, self-publishing, etc. In recent months I've gotten emails and calls from people purporting to be companies that really liked my book (right - I've published more than one) and would love to "work with" me to get it into mainstream distribution. Others said they'd love to republish my book on a better platform,... Show more

YouTube Writing Scams are nothing new. Bogus agents, useless marketing schemes, and vanity publishers abound. Here are the 2019 twists on the old scams.

Good morning everyone,
I’ve just found this website and delighted to connect with writers of different interests and stories to share.
Writing has always been the most satisfying activity as long as the topic is regarding anything else but me “a pencil and a paper have always intimidated me “ :)
I have now the luxury of time and content in order to finally write about where I used to work and it will all be in a light and... Show more


Anthologies of humorous anecdotes are a major part of the literary vernacular, so yes - that would be a wonderful and refreshing addition to the posts here.

One of the groups I belong to prohibits promoting our own books. I just want to know if any such prohibition exists here.

Only here, where you posted your question. There's a thread posted right above this comment called "Promotions and Advertising" where you can definitely promote your books. Sadly, a lot of people continue to disregard that thread and post their ads in this section. Thank you so... Show more

Hello everybody !
I just drew my own cover for a book that I want to publish once I'll finish it but I really want to know what you think aboutit .
If it is too childish
If it would attack your attention in a libraries and etc...
The book is gonna bee for readers from 12 and up
Thank you !
You'll find the cover as my profile pic

jake wilhelm

This looks like it will be a good book cover. If you still have doubts, try to look at over covers for the books in your customer's age group, they'll give you an idea of what artists are doing in the genre. Google books in your market, and even go to the public library and have a look.

Thatnk you very much for your advise I did that and I found out that my cover does look a little cheldish as it doesn't have the effect I wanted but I made another one and is exactly what I needed.
