"Thanks so much for your insights.  The thing I find most difficult is the learning curves of everything publishing-related.  The writing is the fun ; the self-fulfilling aspect of the creativity.  Worrying about how and where to…"

"To echo what has already been said, I too am a Kindle publisher and found the process easy.  I am about 10K words from completing Book Two in a steampunk trilogy and waiting to make the jump to Createspace or put any serious money into…"

"You're welcome. Check out this post. There are a lot of resources for self publishers out there, including groups that will tell you which PODs to avoid. I tend to stay away from the groups that charge for membership. Good luck and good…"

"Thank you Milton!  This is exactly the sort of feed-back I was hoping for.  It's kind of scary how many of the Indie "companies" are actually just scammers preying on us starry-eyed(?) authors."

"I self-publish on Kindle, and I would have to agree with Blimprider that Amazon try to make it easy to put your books on there. What is harder, though, is promoting your work. I still have not crcked that, so don't expect high sales if you take…"

Introduce yourself!
Hi, I am a retired Grandpa with 3 great grandkids. (they're Great, not me, I'm just Grandpa). I have been writing stories for my kids since they were young and now I am writing for my grand kids. for the first time in my life I am looking seriously at having my stories published. I have so many lined up in my mind that I should have been writing all my life instead of working. I live in a seaside town on Vancouver Island off Canada's west coast.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
I hope to share information and ideas about writing and publishing. To give and get encouragement and support. Maybe share some laughs about our mutual obsession.
How did you hear about us?
The organization was mentioned in a newspaper article. It sounded like a delightful and interesting group to be included in.
