First of all, please take some care in answering these questions. We really do consider them when approving membership. Thanks! What genre(s) of books do you write?

Motorsports and Aviation. articles and books, current events and history.

Is it (are they) ready to self-publish now? (Either a new book, or a traditionally-published book that you now own the copyright to).

New book is Making it FASTER. Received a stunning review in Autoweek and more big news is coming soon.

Do you have any experience self-publishing? If yes, what tools, technologies, services, have you used?

Yes, my new book "Making it FASTER" was self-published. Createspace using their book distribution including Barnes & Noble as well as using them for Kindle. Using the other e-formats available for sales were nothing but an exercise in futility or worse.

Have you published traditionally? If so, please describe.

Motorcycle Grand Prix Racers, the American Heroes pub. 2010 by Motorbooks, foreword by Alan Cathcart.

Do you have any expertise to offer this group - editing, book design, web design, SEO, social media marketing, ebook formatting, etc.)?

My experience is from working with editors and publishers.

Introduction

What Norm D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Probably the most valuable 90 minutes I spend in any week when this meetup occurs.
