Wow, this is awesome, I have 2 books already that I self publish but I lost most of one with a computer failure and am back re-copying it and revising at the same time... sounds like this is a far better option than how I did it the first time around.

The online bit is a great idea. I usually scribble in a diary, but then feel too lazy to put it all on the comp. Maybe I should open a gmail document for my scribbling now.

Sounds like a great idea. I wrote two romance novels years ago, but evidently my correct way of writing speach and cliches and all that english (garbage) left me in a tither. So gave it away and wrote booklets. Now I am just writing articles and they are so much less hassle. But I would still love to have my novels published.
