    Greetings!

    Hello, everyone! I come in peace, and I'm anxious to learn.

    I've self-published two books thus far (one of them doing extremely well, the other not impressing anyone but I'm at least happy with it), and I have several more in the pipeline. I'm looking forward to learning from this group and sharing great progress together.

    Nice to meet you all!

    Welcome, welcome!

    Congrats on the success on the book that's doing well. More importantly, (as long as your bills are getting paid) It's always wonderful when you the author are happy with your work!

    Looking forward to seeing you around the threads!
    I have a horror story on SYW Come put red lines through it!

    You can't... start to delete a word so you can change it to a different word but then keep the first letter of the old word...
    it will eventually eat the new word's soul and turn it into an evil, undead word-zombie...
