Do participants have to meet all of the requirements listed? I'm not finding the link you mentioned in my preferences. I'm guessing its because I am not contributing financially, which is too bad. I wish I could.. .

I self published Allsville Emerging with a company out of Houston Tx, Strategic Publishing Company. Self published Christian Running, and co-authored book called About Wholeness, using BookWhirl publishing, Green Bay, Wisconsin . All three were once on Amazon, but not now. Good chance they could still be ordered from the respective vanity presses.
Thanks for creating this forum. I'll look into the possibility of submitting the info to order these books.

I like it but it's a pity each entry doesn't come with it's own comment section.
In addition to what IndianRoads contributed, we don't allow comments on that Forum because it would bump threads. Eventually someone would abuse that and just keep bumping their books. Better to deal with that problem before it occurs. :)

However, I'd encourage people to start threads about the books in other areas. I'd had an idea that could happen in Reviews, but possibly people want to ask questions and initiate discussion before reading a book. Maybe we need to create a space for that to happen. I could actually see some conversations of that type being on topic in Writing Discussion ... things like "What led you to that idea" or "Why did you decide to use this style". There could be some real value in discussion about finished product over WIPs.

That's an EXCELLENT idea!
 
I gotta say, the published books page is very well thought out; possibly the best one I've seen at any writing forums. Having it as a catalog type selection so people can't abuse it by bumps is a great idea. And the overall layout and presentation is top-notch, it looks like a professional online bookstore. Whoever put the work in to create it, you deserve a big pat on the back for a job well done.

Thank Jim (vranger) and Darren especially for that - a lot of it was their idea. And of course none of it would have come together without Gumby, Pip, and Velo. I'm pleased and excited beyond measure with what they created.
