Hey Everyone,

Thought I'd stop by and say hi. I'm from Western Oregon. I was born and raised in Western Washington up near Canada. I've got a book near complete and three more in the works. Hope to hang out with all of you and learn as much as I can.

Hello Everyone,

We are a new service and we thought we would introduce ourselves and get more information about what authors are looking for in their ghostwriter.

We started as industry insiders and we have gathered a wonderful team of seasoned writers and editors. Our team goal is to facilitate communication between our writers and the client so that when the author receives their word, they see their vision come to life.

It goes without saying that we would love for you to visit our website and keep an eye out for our blog. Our main goal here though is to engage in conversations with authors and publishers in order to learn more about their needs and goals and what they currently aren't able to find in ghostwriting services.

We look forward to joining the conversation.

Best,
Creative Thoughts Unlimited

Greetings, Greetings fellow writing confrere's...My name is Robin and I am gradually returning back to writing in which I love and do everyday. Whether it is through letter or on pieces of paper. My son has moved out and on and now I am cracking my knuckles and getting back to a schedule of writing and reading to help pursue my writing endeavor. I seek guidance and constructive criticism's which will help ameliorate my craft and help me ineluctably become a published author on the NYT List..I say Dream Big or don't Dream at ALL!!!!! I look forward too, EVERYTHING!!!

Hi everyone,
I came on board to post a page for critique but then thought perhaps, instead of diving in, I should get to know everyone first.

I have 2 books in the pipeline: one is the very difficult fantasy I have pursued for the past 4 years through myriad life changes - in 2014 I launched a major re-write of it (turned the book on its head, actually) and am about 3/4 of the way through. It is the hardest thing I have ever done and if it ever sees the light of day, I will be tickled to no end.

The second is a young adult novel, finished several years ago, pitched, rejected, and awaiting a small rewrite, after which I might try self-publishing it.

I wish all the writers here the best of luck, want to say thanks to Nathan for creating a forum for us, and look forward to interacting.
:P

Hello:

I'm haunted souls and I'm from Toronto, Canada. I earn my living as a writer and instructional designer. I've been blessed to publish a few short stories, some poetry, and one MG novel in magical realism - The Bridge of Haunted Souls. I just completed my first literary novel entitled Prairie's Edge. Look forward to meeting people here.

hello all, not sure I have the correct link for a new post, but my name is Bob. since I was once in the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam, I incorporated that number (101) with "Bob" and since I am not intellectually sharp as some added "basic" to come up with basicbob101 as my handly, kinda like an introductory college course label.

any way I am about 60 miles SW of Houston (poor Astros, very bad games the last 3!). have a few basic literary style questions to ask, what would be the proper thread? thanxz to all. :D

Howdy do all. My name is Shane Lassetter and I am a new author. I have self-published a geeks vs zombies book. The series is called OUTLAST and the first book is Geeks Will Gather. This one only emcompasses the first six days of a more realistic apocalypse and it is currently set in south Texas; Lake Jackson and Corpus Christi. My version involves a virus that cooks the brain within an hour and a half. These 'zombies' are still human without humanity. Set back to base animal instincts of eating, drinking, sleeping, killing, and sex. To 99% of them you are a threat or food. I am currently trying to hit every book store that will have me in my extended area and attending comic cons.
My second book, Veterans Affairs, is currently done and edited, awaiting my cover art. It is about a moral assassin, John Parks, that writes travel books. Too many people on this earth deserve to die and he does what our in-justice system doesn't. He has friends that help and even takes on an occasional government job. The one thing he always does is vet the contract though. This sometimes leads to his helping instead of killing. Something some officials don't like. Ah! The life of someone with a sense of morality.
I am 31,000 words into my second zombie book with two others around the 2,000 mark that I periodically go to. I need help with social media and advertising if anyone has suggestions. I am currently trying to find a 16yr old girl to help me but it's hard to do without looking like a pervert.
