Hi everyone! I'm Filipa Silva, a portuguese author and have been published by one of the main publishing houses in Portugal. Since my publisher opted to not translate it to English, I hired a professional translator and launched in Amazon:). It's exciting!

I'm here because of "Let's get digital, how to self publish and why you should" by David Gaughran. If you have any doubt about the level of disruption that e-books and self publishing will bring to the industry over the next 3-5 years, think again. Great read for any author and/or ebook device owner.

From the first glimpses, I'm sure I'll have some interesting debates/ suggestions about how a non-english author can make it in the US/UK ebook markets.

Just getting started:)

Merry Xmas!

Hi Filipa,

Welcome! I hope you make a lot of new friends here! :)
Nice to meet you, Filipa. David Gaughran is a great help for new writers. Have you read his historical novel about the war for South American independence?

I've interviewed him a couple of times on my blog if you want to take a look.

Good luck with your books.
Welcome Filipa.
Glad you found your way to the KB.
Hope you find friends here.
