    Good point

    I thought so.

    I just took a quick look at the e-publisher where I had my book of poetry for sale

    It is free to have them sell an e-book. They accept the book as a pdf file and send it out as an executable file. It would be available in both PC and Mac formats

    example - a 100 page e-book could sell for about 10$ US. Of that $10 the author (in this case JWD) would get $7 US for every book sold. Not bad

    To get a POD book (print on demand) it costs a setup fee of 199$ US plus $18/per year for posting it on their site. POD books only pay 35- 50% of the book cost to the author

    Personally I would prefer to stay with the e-book instead of having to deal with doling out money

    We retain copyright of the book and can pull it off the site any time we want

    I had no problems with this e-publisher before. I only used the e-book offer and did not use POD. Once a month they sent my a royalty check if the amount of the check was $10 or more. And they were honest about it.

    Now that is only one e-publisher. I know people who use others and I have an anthology book coming out before xmas (I only wrote one story in it and am not in charge of the marketing for it)

    How about "Apostafood for the Soul", or "Dining with Apostates".


    Blu -

    Will the recipes be named according to attributes or perceptions of the poster they're associated with? For example, would mine be named "Demonised Fluffy Cat Leg Of Lamb" or "Hairy Bearded Bastard Mutton Chops"?

    Sounds like a great idea to me! I am not a very good family has been known to hide when I put food on the table... But, I will be first in line to buy one, I can use all the help I can get!

    Terrible cooking does not run in my Grandma was runner up in the Pillsbury 9th Grand National Bake-Off. She had a recipe in the Grand National Recipe Booklet that they was for a cake called..."Cocorama Cake"...I personally don't like coconut, so I have never made it myself. Grandma would be ashamed.

    Here is a picture of her with Ronald Reagan, actor, before he became President of the United States.

    wow what a nice piece of family history Mrs Shakita

    Stephanus I think we might have to stick to more traditional names so people can find them LOL

    "What else do you suppose we need

    Dingo asked, eager for some of his
    gooey brewy, yummy chewy wombat stew!
