View Full Version : Published and proud

04-23-2005, 06:38 AM
I have just been published for a month now. I guess that I could still be proud even if it was POD. Print on demand was the way that I went and now I need to market the heck out of it. Does anyone have anything to help me?
"From the Mind of Bill Satellite" is the first of at least five volumes and it is my baby. I am shooting for something more in the way of theatrical. I would be honored if anyone would pick my book up and give it a read and a thumbs up. Heck, my own family won't give me any approval.

Jeez, newbies. I bet he/she has never once glanced at this thread again, so they don't know these links are here. I sent them a private message, but they probably don't even know they have such a function. Oh, well, I guess I could move these links to a different spot where someone else might get some use out of them!:hi:
