New author in the block
« on: May 18, 2017, 11:03:15 AM »
Greetings everyone.
My name is Steve (Stepan actually, but I found the hard way that a native English speaker will never pronounce it right, neither when bribed, nor when tortured  :) So may it be Steve).
To say I am glad that I found KB would be an understatement. It is like a book loving religion, I would never believe such a nice place can exist in the real world.
I have few books on Amazon (, a home page ( with some freebies and a blog ( Please be nice and leave (positive) reviews and/or likes in Social Networks :)

Speaking of the blog: I wanted, for a long time, to run a comprehensive self-publishing experiment. Well, I have started it exactly one month ago, and keep documenting everything in my blog. The idea is to do at least something, every day. Maybe you'll find it interesting. I discovered to my surprise, that if indeed, at least something is done daily, a lot can be achieved in a month.

Good luck to all of you and long live to Amazon.

I believe that self-publishing works better than an obsolete "traditional" approach. Simply because you do it for yourself and you will not cut corners, screw nails and hammer screws.
In my blog, a "sample self-publishing project" is being documented as I do it: please visit.
