I recently read that the author of Fifty Shades of Grey self published online and is obviously now a multimillionaire.  I am thinking of doing this with my friend's book and investing in her as it were, does anyone have any experience?

yes but you can control it and decide the book price, the audience, everything.

OMG Wannabe 54 did you go ahead?  I have been wanting to do this for ages like WayneM says we all have a book in us!  I didn't know that the 50 Shades lady did it that way!

Do you know what I decided to do, I decided to start a Blog to ease myself in and not get so scared about the whole thing

What a brilliant idea I hadn't thought og that

everyuone is doing it nowadays and it is so easy to do.  I just set one up on my social media

23 September at 22:28 - by  wannabe54

ah so you write on your social media?

24 September at 08:50 - by EdiWalker

No I used a blog website free, then I post about the blog all the time on my social media and put extracts on it to see if people like it.  It helps you to see if your style of writing suits the peublic domain.

I see but the thing is my book is fictional not descriptive?

28 September at 20:07 - by EdiWalker

It doesn't matter though?  As long as you get into the spirit of writing, then your blog can be fictional, you just need to let your readers know then of course you can build up a following, this is what I am doing, so when I release my book I have a ready made audience who will download it.
