TIPS AND BRAGS 14.9.14

Hey…WILL YOU HELP ME ON SORTING OUT 100 OR SO POEMS/WORKS THAT I CAN COMPILE IN ONE/MULTIPLE EBOOKS?

No, you wont have to pick 100 of my works that you wont mind buying as an ebook, only few will be enough, as they will vary from one friend to the other i will get my hundred.

Apart from that, can you suggest how many should be compiled together for one book and how much will I name as price?

puhleeeeeeez…

Fourth story : Gateway to hell- I keep forgetting to add its URL but hey, if anyone is going there, which I dont think is because I dont see any votes spilling there 🙂 but in case you do you will be able to find the story if you can access one of the stories.

Sorry for the misinformation, You will have to become a member before you read the stories, or else it will be a hunting ground for plagiarists i believe. So, if you love to read stories you can join, if you want to write stories and get them tested by “no nonsense” writers join, if you love to spend your extra money with poor, hungry writers join!

I cant earn a dime from there at present but will love to have your votes, as many as you can give after joining 🙂

SMASHWORDS BULLETIN

After initial testing and downloading their guideline to get the ebook ready for being published I gave up! It is impossible to follow that guideline. I am not an expert in formatting such things.

Spending 40 dollars to get a book published… well its a tough game for me. So if I can manage to handle their formatting demands then it is ok or else sorry for me. 🙂

in case you are in smashwords, or you are interested to take a peek, here is my interview-

POTHI.COM

I have opened the gmail account, joined the bandwagon but it seemed i will have to either create my ebook and publish it there or forget the entire waste of time.

The ebook building services they are referring are run by their own administrators, tried to build one but it refused to accept images after repeated efforts.

Thus it’s fate hangs there in my book.

Can anyone suggest a good site from where a novice can develop own ebook with lots of illustrations? without paying money, sorry, dont ask an unemployed woman for money. have a heart!

    • that will be a priceless help Geneviene. I have heard it from so many friends and strangers that my poems should get published, that is why i am audacious enough to think about self publishing, that will give me the liberty of picking up the poems i love and the ones that my friends love… and see if they truly can win hearts!

      hope you are feeling better now and pray that it is not hurting. I remember more than one occasion when i went sliding down the stairs- they were really painful on the bones.

      take care.
      love.

      • Trisha, i hope this project is going well. Since i don’t know the first thing about poetry, i hesitate to make any suggestions. However, i encourage you with all my might, because your work really is lovely.
        The beauty of self publishing is being able to do it YOUR way. So i say, follow your heart and use the ones you feel guided to use, or the ones you like best. You know much more about it than do i.
        I look forward to seeing the final result! Hugs!
        (Oh, yes, i’m doing better. Thank you for asking. The ankle is painful, but it will take some time. The bruised ribs are better — only hurt when i reach for things. I was lucky!) 🙂

      • Thanks a million times Geneviene, I will then try the self publishing, will make a book of haiku+seven and another one of free form poems. Can I ask another favor? Will I be arrogant enough to add my own illustrations, that is just pick the ones I like alongwith my own illustrations or skip the illustrations?

        Yes you were lucky but even then that was really not nice! wicked stairs! Being an expert in the field I know you are ignoring the pain, hope it will get better ASAP and am glad that it is not winter! Thank God!

        take care.
        lots of love.

  1. Hi Sharmishthah. Would love to help and select a couple of stories. Just tell me in which links?
    (You have so many site, I get lost…)
    Take care
    Brian

  2. Hi Trisha. So sorry for the delayed reply re the illustrations. Personally I adore your art & think it would be lovely if you can use them! However, I gather the formatting is more difficult. So it all depends on how much of a challenge you want. It is all so much work… but it can give much satisfaction. Huge hug!

I LOVE TO READ AND RETURN COMMENTS. SOME OF MY READERS DONT LEAVE URL, IF THEY START LEAVING URL I WILL JUST LOVE TO READ THEIR WORKS TOO.
