ABOUT THIS SITE
This is home to Toni Graeme's three self published books and a lot more. Just started in June 2015 so there is a long way to go with constant additions from viewers and myself.
There is an information and tips page for writers. Please feel free to pass this website URL along to others you think may
be interested and send email your questions.
Readers suggestions will be posted from time to time so do use the submitform on the contact page to share with other writers - seriously or in humour.
Writers can support each other in the development of writing skills, offer to review someone's book or share publicity and distribution ideas appropriate to the genre.
There were more self published books printed in 2008 than those printed by traditional publishing houses.
There is a start on list of self published authors who are now famous on the Writer's page. Many like Charles Dickens had their works published in tabloids or magazines, and perhaps collected later for a book, but they are not considered self published.
“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”
