“The Lotus of Fire” and “Petals of Fire Lotus”

This lovely author and artist was one of the first people to communicate with me willingly and givingly on my blog, who gave me a leg up into being read by a lot of others too, I think. So I’m paying forward and in the spirit of authors helping one another, passing on her recent success to you, dear reader.

I haven’t read the books yet and so cannot vouch for content but from her blog and comments I think you can expect something heart lifting and a little bit dear within the world (as in precious, not expensive, Australians among you.)

But also, she’s generously sharing how easy it is to get your book together and published by a platform. And she is talented enough to illustrate her own books, although I think that is the wrong verb and implies the wrong format.

Poems and paintings. Sounds like beauty to me.

Thanks Teagan for telling me about createspace, it is amazing!

Now why I love createspace?

I by mistake clicked their paid service and a lady named Laura contacted me, without creating a single fuss (when I told her that I dont have any money) she gave me a list of links that I followed and here is my book!

They give you doc/pdf formats – all you have to do is follow it- dont try any experiments, and remember if you have any picture its dpi should be above 300 (resolution). Then once it is done they give you a reviewer that spoonfeeds you about your slips and necessary correction.

They supply you covers- you have to open their online cover builder and choose or supply your own cover in their format.

They allow you six platforms including kindle for free.

They totally guide you as best as anyone can!…
