Is it true that I need to take creative writing classes before I will be able to write a book?

My opinion is no. Write what you feel /want /need, but if classes will give you confidence, go for it.

Hi Gigi,

If you're not worried about DRM, then a PDF of the ebook file would be fine to send to whomever you're donating it too. Unless you're trying to offer the file for free through Amazon...?

Anybody know how to donate an ebook that my publisher has done about my book TALON, COME FLY WITH ME? It is available by as ebbok and kindle, but i don't know how to donate free book samples from there for Bobbie.
Anyone know? would be much appreciated.

I find it amazing how a story seems to take on a life of its own. Once the juices start flowing it just happens. I learned the hard way as a new writter that you can have a very good story but get in to big of a hurry. I am now in the process of rewriting my published book, "The Tower." I have been writing almost two years and have learned so much. When I began I thought writing was easy but the longer I have written the dumber I relized I was. I didn't know enough to even ask the right questions. My writing and publishing has been a wonderful learning experience.

Bookmarks are a way I attract kids, using them as collectable with a different Guardian featured for that book. Here is the bookmark for #4 - A Question of Sovereignty.

I was pleased to discover that going with the CreateSpace Pro Plan with expanded distribution channels, B&N and other bookstores can order my books through Ingram and Baker & Taylor just like a traditional publish. In fact, I have a book signing at a local B&N for ALL 3 of my books June 18th.

Thanks for the info.

It isn't true but sometimes advised. For some it really helps but to be honest, when I tried taking a class, it really messed with my writing. I find that writing and more writing and reading and more reading, makes me a better writer. Follow your own heart on that. Sometimes listening to others messes up things.
