    Anybody in the forum published or in the process of writing a book or something that they want to publish? I've been writing the story of my life and would like to get it published or at least looked at. What must I do to accomplish this goal? Can someone point me in the right direction?

    There is this website called, "google." If you need to find something, just type: www.google.com into your browser's address bar. When the google page comes up, you type what you are looking for into the space provided.

    It works shockingly well.

    Steve, you can self-publish a book yourself. My wife wrote a book and tried to go the old traditional route, but kept getting turned down. She went to Authorhouse Publishing. For about $500, you will see yourself in print. You will get a Library of Congess listing and see yourself on Amazon.com and Borders.com. The catch is this does not include getting an agent and promoting it. She tried to do everything herself, and we have had four cases of unsold books sitting around the house for a few years now.

    You just have to love TB's funny side. My question was directed at the people in this forum, so's I could see if any of my buds had first hand experience in this arena. The same way I would ask you first about riding those KTM's than researching it on the internet.
