    I think Rollin taught us the importance of - "Don't plagiarize."

    Self publishing is the quickest way to go. You can publish one copy orone million copies. Check out Writers Digest. There are tons of websites to peruse information.

    Shot 410 thanks for the info. I didn't know where to start. Its not for me I'm just trying to help out another person Who is a good writer but has not taken it any farther. Now that he has been out of work for quite sometime and cannot pay his bills I thought he should submit some of his work. I have read his stuff and he is very good.

    Bus gun I hope I didn't offend you. But to call someone a theif. I wouldn't want to think you would infradig.

    b12,

    It sounds like your friend might be better off seeking a publisher rather than self publishing his material. There are costs involved with publishing a book. How much depends on what the he wants to publish.

    If you like, call me and we can talk about publishing: (920)464-0124

    Thanks, I will pass this on to him. I think he just needs to be pointed in the right direction and given some confidence. Bill
