Sharmini Jesudas (sharjesu) For any publishers looking for a hidden gem,

Might I suggest a book that I found in the Amazon bargain bin

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A4FO160/

Dream Caster by Najeev Raj Nadarajah

It's a definite ★★★★★ novel

I read it about 2 months ago when it was just released, and I'm surprised to see a book this good not doing well in terms of sales.

If you're in search of a hidden gem, I thought maybe you can take a look at this one.

Mindy (Boyer) Larson | 2 comments Good Afternoon,
My name is Mindy Larson. I am the self published author of This Morning I Woke Up Dead. This Morning I Woke Up Dead I am seeking a publisher in hopes of increasing my exposure and sales, however things are going quite well and I've had some success going at it alone. I am humbled, honored, and very proud of my novel, as it has received a lot of great reviews and positive remarks! I'd be happy to send out an epub file, or PDF file, or an actual hardback copy of the book if anyone is interested. Thanks for your time and consideration, I look forward to hearing back from you.

Sincerely,
Mindy Larson

Khara Robinson | 15 comments Hello,

I am a self published author and would love to get published. I need help spreading the word and getting my book out there to th public. Here is the link to my book: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_sab...


message 13: by E.J. (new)

E.J. Jackson (elainejenny) | 2 comments I wonder if anyone here has had experience of Authorhouse? I made an initial enquiry some months ago when I was thinking that I might self-publish (book is still a WiP) and have had umpteen emails and phone calls from them since, and feel a little harrassed... I'd be interested to hear other people's experience with them, since at the moment it feels like 'hard sell' and that is a big turn-off for me... but perhaps I'm wrong. I don't want to write them off if I do go the self-publish route, if they provide a good service. Recommendation goes a long way...


message 14: by Khara (new)

Khara Robinson | 15 comments Thank you so much for the insight. This buisness is very hard to break into. I started with the Amazon self punlishing also because the other self publishing houses cost a lot of money. so, hopefully with a lot of hard work and perserverance things will work out.


message 15: by Khara (new)

Khara Robinson | 15 comments I did the the same with Authorhouse. They called and emailed me all the time. I had to finally tell them I'm not in a financial postion to come aboard at this time, but if anything should change I would let them know. Haven't heard from them since. Hope that helps.

Toni Seger | 25 comments This is an interview I did with Virtual Writers about my satiric trilogy which is available on Amazon.

BTW, it's good to see an original ebook publisher ready to take more of a risk for less commercial fiction. I'm going to look into that.

This is an open call for an anthology of short romantic fiction which takes place in a super hero universe; at least one of the love interests has to be a superhero or villain. Any story containing copyrighted characters is not permitted (Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Psylocke, etc.) but fanfiction which has been edited to be a stand-alone story with original characters is acceptable. All gender pairings, sub-genre, and content rating are accepted for this book, but the main theme has to be romance. The word limit is a 15,000 word maximum with no minimum word count.

$30 for accepted stories and $100 for accepted cover art.

message 21: by Christy (new)

Christy Stewart (christyleighstewart) | 3 comments This is an open call for "No Place for Us"; an anthology of short romantic fiction which takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Any story containing copyrighted characters is not permitted, but fanfic which has been edited to be a stand-alone story with original characters is acceptable. All gender pairings, sub-genre, and content rating are accepted for this book, but the main theme has to be romance. The word limit is a 15,000 word maximum with no minimum word count.

Dystopia is arguably the most socially critical genre of fiction and despite a resurgence of popularity we have seen very little depictions of marginalized people; that's why our latest project at GMP is a post-apocalyptic anthology. We're looking for stories about people that we see too little of: People of color, disabled people, and LGBTQIA+ peoples.

Authors will retain the copyright to their work, receive $30.00USD for accepted works, and receive a free paperback copy of the book upon publication. Authors from all over the world and from any age group (under the age of 18 is accepted) are invited to submit their stories. The submission deadline is January 31, 2015.

Please email all submissions in Word format to submissions@goodmourningpublishing.com. Feel free to email any questions to the same address.
