    I am a one time self-published author, intending to be more than one time published. Learned lots about the foray into self publishing the first.

    Have any of you guys/girls ever been published? Would be interested in sharing experiences with someone who has similar tastes in football teams.

    Reply to this thread or drop me a PM. Thanks for reading

    Hopefully this isn't too self-serving :)

    I had some of my travel articles published years ago. Plus, I won two playwriting contests and had my plays performed in Denver.

    I've been published in professional journals and magazines only. I would like to publish a novel, or better yet a textbook (cash cow).

    I've been trying to write a novel for years without a lot of success. Kudos to you guys who have succeeded in getting published with anything. Tough business.

    I barely have enough patience to read a book, much less write one!

    I wrote some game reports for a football paper for 3-4 years before it closed down when the internet took over as the main source of sports news.

    Interesting stuff drives you to continue reading!

    Actually, when I was young. I couldn't ready novels. I couldn't make it through the first 2-3 chapters before I was so bored, I would never pick up the book again.

    That finally changed when I tried to read Dean Koontz's book Intensity. That book grabbed me and I read the entire thing in one night. I'm thankful for that, because that allowed me to know that sometimes it's worth waiting for (or wading through the first few chapters) to find you've got a really great book to read!

    I think the biggest novel I've ever read is The Stand.
