madison posts on 10/1/2013 11:31:13 AM So is anyone here trying to write a book and is there an author that you read who makes you want to write? I am a fan of female centered mysteries but a friend in a writing group said to write a main character who is male because both men and women will read it that way whereas only women will read a mystery with a female detective. ??

Scout posts on 8/22/2013 10:16:31 AM I am reading that series now (Rubino's, right?) I agree that Kindle bundling, either a single author or anthology style, would be something to consider for backlisted material.

TJ posts on 3/27/2013 7:41:06 AM I just picked up a kindle and tried out a new series - new to me. Anyway what the author did was to take the first 3 books in her out of print series and offer them in one kindle download - three books for the price of one. I thought that was a cool idea and wonder why a lot more authors dont do it - of course a lot of them may want to put up their books separately, but dollarwise this is a good deal.

N Silver posts on 7/26/2012 9:10:11 AM The hobo book sounds a bit like The Big Fix. Was made into a Richard Dreyfuss movie but started out as a novel.
Edmound posts on 4/26/2012 7:45:05 PM "What if someone like Mick Jagger lost everything and ended up hobo. Came across this recently - but could only get the first two chapters. Do you know where I can get the book?" Check amazon , they have everything.. and while you are there, check out some "Emotobooks" - New medium of fiction I just found. They look amazing
Ione posts on 2/16/2012 10:07:24 AM I think most of us at some time think our life story is worth talking about but unless you are going to self publish it and promote it yourself you have to look at it from the view of a publisher who has to put money into the production of your book. They are not even going to say Is This An Interesting Story but only will it sell? And even thats a gamble.
