Default Introduction


Hello, I'm new to this forum. I've written two historical novels, one set during World War II, the other during the mid-Sixties. Both have a global range. I've no idea how to get published, or even readers.

Why do you want to publish them?

Oh. I see. Well you will simply need to be patient and await his reply.

This guy posted and then nada.

I wonder if he is off someplace writing his third historical novel.
I suppose something like that would take most of one's time.

Xerxes
"...me, I like to read the works for those whom I've conversed with first as it brings their works to life as it were..." smiled the goblin who felt the easiest way to get readers for one's books was to turn one's books into audiobooks and upload them to youtube, restarting "...it might mean that you have to offer the first book as bait there, but if they like that first book there then they might buy the sequel if linked...", not that the goblin himself cared for books much, yes he did read them still, only that he seemed increasingly alone in doing so, just everyone else seemed online instead, only the audiobooks held their readership because they alone could be played in the background while one drove somewhere or did the housework or whatever, before concluding "...whoops, sorry I guess none of this really has anything to do with welcoming you as should be in a welcome then...", so in order to make amends the goblin simply drew a circle in the air to reveal a coffee-table, and upon it only the finest filtered coffee, cream and sugar, and a whole plateload of homemade biscuits too, before turning to Xerxes, asking "...now you'll join us won't you, I mean more folks read casual posts than most anything else, and all you have to do is make a name for yourself by what you write for them here, yet it's not "what you write" for them, but "what you keep on writing" for them as a constant, that keeps them reading you still...", in fact the goblin couldn't be more inviting even if he knew he was offering a treadmill in disguise

Always a pawn, never a rook.

*sigh*
