New link for self-published authors

Hi, all.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Just came across this link on facebook for anyone who has self-published a book.  It could be another way to network.

December's Meeting

From Bill:

Since December's meeting will be on December 20, it was discussed that we should meet at the usual location and then proceed to a local establishment for food and refreshments.  So just bring your appetites.

November 15th Meeting

From:  Bill

We had another good meeting last night with 12 people in attendance. We started off by having four readers read their short stories or poems.

Bill started it off by reading B I G O T which is not what it sounds like it would be.  BIGOT was the top of the line in secrets during World War II.

Rich read  Victorian Christmas Tree which was published in his book.

Alice read Breeding Ground, Journey Back, The Adversary, Emergent, and Wasteland.

Helen read An Ode to the Computer which was published in 1985 when everybody in business had to learn to use a new tool.

Todd read one of his blog entries on how to downsize so that everything you own has to fit in a compact car to make the cross-country journey from CA to WV.

After the readings, we met our newest member, Chris Berhalter, who had his first book published in August.  The book is Heir to the Throne and is published by Aberdeen Bay Publishers.  He had it published without knowing anything about the business of getting a book published.

Meeting on Monday

Meeting is at 7pm on Mon. Nov. 15 at Books a Million. Try to bring a friend for some free entertainment and shopping. FORWARD THIS EMAIL AND ADVISE ON FACEBOOK. Send me email address of those who want to be on the list.

Listed readers who will read original material include.Bill Orkoskey, Jomana Krupinski, Rich Knoblich, Alice hemgra, Joanie Murray Todd Foose, Emily, Andy Fred Conners. Not everyone will have time to read. Please limit reading to 5-6 minutes. don't have to read the entire piece, nothing wrong with a cliffhanger.

I'll have NO signups for DEC. The meeting is scheduled for Dec. 20, mighty close to Christmas. It was suggested we gather at Books a Million then as a group we go someplace (restaurant?) for shop talk and hot cocoa, wine, or beer. I support this suggestion but am open to further ideas.
