BRAGBOARD AND TIPS 20.8.14

Hey…WILL YOU HELP ME ON SORTING OUT 100 OR SO POEMS/WORKS THAT I CAN COMPILE IN ONE/MULTIPLE EBOOKS?

No, you wont have to pick 100 of my works that you wont mind buying as an ebook, only few will be enough, as they will vary from one friend to the other i will get my hundred.

Apart from that, can you suggest how many should be compiled together for one book and how much will I name as price?

puhleeeeeeez…

Sorry for the misinformation, You will have to become a member before you read the stories, or else it will be a hunting ground for plagiarists i believe. So, if you love to read stories you can join, if you want to write stories and get them tested by “no nonsense” writers join, if you love to spend your extra money with poor, hungry writers join!

I cant earn a dime from there at present but will love to have your votes, as many as you can give after joining :)

SMASHWORDS BULLETIN

After initial testing and downloading their guideline to get the ebook ready for being published I gave up! It is impossible to follow that guideline. I am not an expert in formatting such things.

Spending 40 dollars to get a book published… well its a tough game for me. So if I can manage to handle their formatting demands then it is ok or else sorry for me. :)

in case you are in smashwords, or you are interested to take a peek, here is my interview-

POTHI.COM

Now, the bad news at the end, I had an account in another ebook publishing site, pothi.com, they used to accept word files and convert them into ebooks without any fuss. Unfortunately back then I was not planning on ebooks, right now, I am quite certain to publish my poems as ebooks and see if they can win hearts…. so I tried to create a new account with them, they told me that they have sent me the password in my email id, heaven only knows which email id, because i did not get it.

Adamantly I went back and requested them for a new password- they again repeated the same message, password sent to your email id… ha and ha.

finally i contacted their support desk.

you know the answer…

LATEST NEWS:

Well their support desk responded and asked me to open a gmail account and open an account through that… will think about that.

Thursday Blog 14.8.14

Lot of my friends all over the social medias express their bewilderment over methodical hacking. I am a very ordinary person, without anything to steal from, yet, just because I picked up sword against the muck of the society I have been facing it for years.

They just have to sniff it out that I am trying something and they show up there, my passwords keep changing, accounts get inaccessible, mails dont show up, phonecalls dont reach, smses dont come… lately they have lost the mojo or after the government change their funds must have gone down so i can feel their net loosening. Even then, someone hacked into my smashword account right after i shared my interview in facebook and wordpress.

Those who are scared of hacking should know one thing, you cant stop them, if they are determined they will hack into your account.

All you can do is keep a close eye on your accounts, for every discrepancy and ask others if they are going through these too. If not they report to the website admin.

Recently a news was published in the local newspapers here, about a government (I have forgotten which country) has sold these spywares after developing them with public money to open market, so this is what I will call make a man buy a stick and then break his legs with that stick!

so, privacy on this hi-tech world is the greatest illusion. Better be careful about your hard earned money and creations.
