Be it your favorite or the last one you wrote, just pick a paragraph from your story. Copy/paste it in this thread and tell the readers the genre of the story you took the paragraph from.

Also, let them know what kind of creatures your imagination has created. Are they werewolves, vampires, fairies, elementals or normal humans with a cool story to tell? Whatever they are, share them here.

Quick question: Can I still sell my book even after I've published it for free?
I'd really appreciate an answer.

Absolutely. Just change the setting on your book's page. You could also leave it up for free on BookRix and publish it elsewhere, like through Nook or Kindle.

E.A PETERS

Thanks! I really appreciate it.

judycolella

No problem - hope it helps. ')
