Hi, everyone! I'm new to the forum.  8) Glad I found it! I just self-published my very first book and I noticed you can share things like that in this particular thread so here we go:

Evil comes in many forms. It can hide in the people you think you know or the places you call home, as well as within you. This collection of nine short stories showcases the worst of humans (and nonhumans) with some dark humor for good measure. From demons and murderers to a bizarre experiment and a journey through Hell itself, The Vixen’s Scream drags us through the underbelly of our world. And not everyone makes it out alive.

Available in Kindle and paperback format! http://www.amazon.com/author/franmaglione

Writers' Cafe / Re: Take Amazon up on offer to do Createspace book?

I used Createspace to make a print version before I even made a Kindle version of my book. I know too many people who still just love holding a book in their hands (myself included). I found the process easy and I was very pleased with the end product. I happen to be engaged to a designer so having my cover done was no problem, but they do offer detailed specifications on how it should be done in order to look right. Aside from that it's just a matter of using a Word template they provide. However, my book has no illustrations. I don't believe that having few illustrations would be more noticeable in a print version. In fact, I think it would showcase them better. And I agree with the point that children like holding and flipping through an actual book with their grubby little hands.   :P

Hi! First-time poster here. I've been a diehard book reader up until just a couple of months ago when I decided to finally get a Kindle. I was reading Stephen King's "Nightmares and Dreamscapes" one night, and as the massive tome was slowly crushing my lungs I realized there had to be a better way to read in bed (i.e., the book is large, I tells ya).
