Heroscapers that are published authors

Well, It's come to my attention that we don't have a thread for this, and in the current dearth of news I thought it might be neat to have a thread for those of us here who are published authors... just in case some of our fellow members want to read our stuff or just for networking purposes.

Those of you in the industry know that "published" can be a touchy word. So, if your work is available to the public, post it here, but I'll keep this first page updated with ISBN-applied, available from major booksellers books here.

Please post links to your works, be they scholarly works, journal articles, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, Lulu.com, ebooks, or sermons. I'll try to keep the first post updated when I can.

General Fiction/Non-Fiction:

RageAngel (aka Paul Nowak)
The Way of the Christian Samurai (or read it free here)
Guerrilla Apologetics for Catholics
Guerrilla Apologetics for Life Issues
The Inconvenient Adventures of Uncle Chestnut

Mossman (aka David Wood)
Dourado
Cibola

Pumpkin King (aka Peter King)
The Stranger (short fiction)

ewabbie's wife (aka Barbara Littner David)
Cincinnati Trips with Kids (with photos by ewabbie)


Technical, Academic, and Specialized Writers:

Ryougabot
Foundations 3 (textbook)
Foundations 4 (textbook)

Ollie (aka M.A. Ollis)
Some cyclic solutions to the three table
Oberwolfach problem
(PDF, Academic Paper)

loborocket
Autodesk Manuals & Tutorials
Contributor to Mastering Revit Architecture 2010

Riggler (aka Todd Twilley)
Various News Reports

SuperflyTNT
Technical papers and Whitepapers

jbbnsmith
Various articles on biochemical engineering

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

In 2001 I co-authored a paper that was in
Bulk Solids Handling

I authored a chapter in Foundations 3 - The practical Resource for total Dust and Material Control
ISBN 0-9717121-0-7

I then was one of the 5 main authors of the Foundations 4
book
ISBN 978-0-9717121-1-9
Both Foundations books are textbooks used in the bulk solids industry

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

Cool! I didn't know we had a few authors here! I'm going to have to recommend Mossman's book to my mom, as she loves the Dirk Pitt novels.

And I was looking over the reviews on your Christian Samurai book, Rage, and you got some idiots leaving reviews! I wanted to report him for not knowing what a samurai, or a Christian was, but I don't have an account....

Good stuff, guys!

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

If by "published author" you mean, "an amateur fiction writer who scribbled something that just so happened to make its way onto a small online horror publication, where he got paid five dollars for it," then yes, I'm a published author.

Here's a link to the small bit of fiction I wrote. Keep in mind this is basically my copy of the story, but online; it's not officially "on the website" quite yet.

These actually just came back from the printer...I have a copy in my hand...That is such a bizarre feeling. Kudos to anyone else who has had the patience to endure the process.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

Not the most exciting piece of work, but you asked for scholarly contributions. Among my papers, this one has the advantages of being available online and needing probably the fewest prerequisites to read: an undergrad course in graph theory or combinatorics should be plenty; one in discrete math might do if you happened to hit the right topics. And, like most authors, I'm willing to talk (and talk and talk) about it if you have questions.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

My work does not have an ISBN number or anyhting, but I do work as a "writer" professionally. I work on the team that writes tutorials and help files for Autodesk AEC software products. The manuals I have contributed mostly to are Revit Architecture 2009 Tutorials, Revit Architecture 2009 Help files, Revit Architecture Families Guide.

Since others have posted download links here is mine:

Though you really would have no reason to look at this stuff unless you are trying to learn how to use Revit Architecture.

Update to my original post. I am now going to be an "official" published author. The author of this book contacted me this week to be a contributor and help him complete this book.

http://www.paulaubin.com/mastering_r...cture_2010.php

It already has a publishing agreement. I signed a contract stating I WILL be credited in the preface and the sections I write.

Perhaps not the most exciting to those outside the world of Architectural software but it IS a big thing for me. Especially since the author came looking for ME to be a contributor.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

Wow, I didn't realize we had so many authors on 'Scapers!
I'm hoping to eventually write a fantasy novel, always been a fan of the genre, and I read nearly constantly so I figured, hey, might as well have a shot at it. Still in the opening chapters of it.
Kudos to all writers, be it novels, studies, or anything in between, what you guys and gals do is definitly not easy!

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

The heroscapers.com Collected Works, is shaping up to be quite a varied read! I'm sure we can get a publisher interested...
