That was how Jack Benny introduced himself to Ed Sullivan's radio audience 85 years ago, before he got his weekly program. If it was good enough for him, it's good enough for me to steal the line.

Hi

Thanks for starting this group Walton and any others involved. I look forward to meeting fellow authors and learning more about self-publishing.

Hello, I am Noreen Snyder. I want to thank Walton for creating this forum. I don't post much; just read a lot on Createspace when I have a chance. Our website is http://garryandnoreensnyder.wixsite.com/poetry

Our poetry book is Two Hearts in One.

Finally joined today! Thank you, Walton, for taking the idea of a new forum and running with it. I'm in the midst of convention season and have been on the road too much to be able to do this myself. It's a breath of fresh air: spam free, and with a great team of fellow moderators.

[INTRODUCTION]
Good morning all,
Thank you Walton, for creating this forum. I get claustrophobic looking at the spam stream in CS, and at the risk of being banned, I still report some of it every day. This is a much better way to use my time!

I am ShariR on the CS forum - would have been consistent and created the same username here, but it didn't occur to me at the time. I have published 2 memoirs, and now I am working on a cookbook and a novel, and I do projects for small businesses 'on the side' - mostly QuickBooks or writing manuals. I am definitely not a graphic designer. At all. I continue to learn from you all. Walton, I have several of your answers printed to PDF for future reference, and appreciated your freebie doc links that you posted yesterday.

Refreshing spam-free environment.
Thanks again!
Shari
