Hello from author based in Beijing
« on: June 14, 2018, 12:34:14 AM »
Hello to all here. I am totally new to Kboards, recommended by reading "Let's Get Digital" of David Caughran, I have read his books many times trying to learn more about self-publishing. I am a Belgian living in Beijing China and already published one book "Toxic Capitalism" (environmental issues). The publishing of that book was not such a happy experience. I am right now finishing book no. 2, a collection of jokes (presently looking for cover design). I now use Scrivener to write books. I have a Kindle and also read e-books on my iPhone. I hope this site can help me more in the "wilderness" of self-publishing. Book no. 3 is in the making, a political manifesto. I also run several websites, one about my books is damulu.com

Welcome to KBoards!

Probably the best thing to do is to ask for recommendattikns from your fellow authors in the Writers' Caf.  Start a thread there about what you are looking for in a cover designer.
