I believe you can publish yourself on Google. A friend of mine has written his life story as a warning against drug taking and I keep telling him to publish it. I'll have to follow that up again. It needs proof reading and editing.
Thank you! Good for you, geekesse! I've been struggling with the Writers' handbook but find information overload there! Having submitted to several publishers, I started trying to get an agent, but nobody interested in me! So I'm going down the self-publishing road and even that is a minefield. I'll try your 2 suggestions Manhattan, I'd forgotten about Mslexia. I need a little more help than simply self-publishing on Google. Although I might work my way round to that eventually. Thanks again.
