Greetings and Blessing, poets, writers, readers, and friends. I am Nabraska, a poet here who is in need of help. I wanted to find a publisher, or person who knows about self-publishing online. I have like three volumes of poetry that is copy-written and ready for print. The problem lies in that I would like to self-publish these volumes through my website, but I do not know how to get them into a pdf file that can be controlled by me. And when I mean control, I mean managed, produced, and sold through my site www.nabraskapoet.com. I would not mind getting published by a company or individual, but I'm trying to save on the paper cost--color, ink, number of copies, etc. I know with Adobe PDF files this would not be the hassle because the file could be there, and people could just click download, put in the credit card number and start reading and flipping through the pictures. So if there is anyone who is in this community, please help a brother out with some information, or some kind of business proposel that would be beneficial to both parties involved. Thank you for your support

Hello Nebaska,

Doing this yourself is not very difficult at all.

If you can lay out your poems in MS word, you are half way there.
There are a number of programs that will convert that to PDF for you.

Then you need to upload it somewhere, so it will be available for download.

You can start with Paypal as a way to collect money.

Need more assistance,

kelvin

Give me a call.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
