Greetings and welcome to my website!

I am L.A. Webber and I am an author! Well, kind of. I’ve had a poem or two published. Mostly in one of those books that offer to print you ‘if you qualify’, in some sort of anthology which is available for purchase from them along with certificates, a plaque or trophy, if you choose to purchase that also...you get the picture.

At present, I have one book finished, one in progress and one collecting dust on the shelf. I have numerous short stories and poems here and there. What I don’t have is a lot of money to spend on paying others to print up books for me. I don’t have the type of personality where I can take a crate of self-published books and hawk them to my family, friends, neighbors and strangers. I don’t have money for an agent and after a few rejection notices I figured that maybe I should just write for pleasure and keep my day job. That was years ago.

Recently, I was thinking that maybe I should try again. It occurred to me that nowadays, people sell books online. Seemed like a good idea. I checked around for a few good spots and found some nice ones. But I noticed something. They’re all very crowded. How do you get noticed on a website with 10,000+ other authors? I’ve seen sites where you get special consideration if you pay extra to join their gold club or become a platinum or diamond member. That’s nice if you can do that, but what if you can’t? What if your book isn’t listed on Amazon? What if you don’t have your own website? What if you just want to put your work up for sale on a good site with a reasonable price? What if you want to be where there is enough room to get noticed? What if you could get paid directly from that website, from your own page on that website? What if you could keep 100% of your profits?

What if I built that website for you? Mind you, I’m no computer whiz. I took some classes, studied up and found out that my programming skills are...well, not that great. But I was convinced that this could be done. It might take a while, but I could do it.

That book that I have finished already? I did it the old fashioned way, on a typewriter. Yeah, it was that long ago. It will be awhile before it’s ready to put up here. But, what about the rest of you out there that have your stuff all ready to go? I have friends that write. I know people that write poetry and short stories and plays and novels and movie scripts. What about them? What about you? What do you want in a website that is there to do one thing, help you sell your work?

I want you to be able to sell what you have, the way it is. I want you to be able to sell your stories. I think your PhD dissertation should sell. I think that there are millions of people out there that will buy your graphic novel and your manga, comic books and comic strips. I think that that really great poem you wrote would make a great poster. Your short stories are worth at least a dollar to thousands of people. I’ve seen some good stuff out there and it’s not on the bookshelves of Border’s or Barnes and Noble and it isn’t offered by them online. More and more people are looking to the internet to find works of art that can’t be found anywhere else.

There are great stories out there that deserve to be seen. There are stories that aren’t so great but there’s a line, a phrase, a chapter or setting in them that just strikes people with a thought that stays with them for the rest of their lives.

That’s what writing is all about. Connecting with the human word in ways that other arts can not through use of spacing, spelling, turning a phrase, typing the feel of it, feeling the energy of the written word as a power unto itself! I wanted a place where that could be felt, where people as readers and writers – artists- could meet and connect and relate. A place where they could share their thoughts and feelings, their perceptions, in order to create more...better...deeper...a place where such relationships could evolve into a force of greater perception and higher understanding....This is what Authorsmark.com is all about, being a place where authors of all types can make their mark upon the world.

I AM determined to make this a great experience for all involved. As time goes by and if enough people are interested, a forum can be added on for authors to keep in better touch with their readers. There is also a plan in place for readers and authors to be able to share their thoughts on what they want to see in the works that they desire. Plot suggestions, philosophies, theories, story lines, suggestions and services desired and available would all be a part of this open club experience. Advertisement of the site will be offline as well as online and will grow as the site grows. I will do everything possible to give you an opportunity to be seen. If you can let them know that you are at Authorsmark.com, I can make sure that they know where Authorsmark.com is.

Thank you for being here and for being a part of this experience!

Sincerely,

I AM

L.A.Webber – Author And Owner of Authorsmark.com
