About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on

  1. I’ve gotten these emails from Amazon for several months. It’s not worth it. Also, if you go with KDP for the paperback, you have to agree to never use Create Space again–at least for that particular book. I don’t like “never” in a contract. Plus, the cost of the book is much more through KDP than through Create Space. I can order my own books for a fraction of the cost (but have to pay shipping) that allows me to make a decent profit. Not so through KDP. I say no to this “service.” And I don’t know any authors who have gone this route.

    • My research led me to the same conclusions. I wish CreateSpace had a site where you could search for books. I intend on using that medium too. This is just another way for Amazon to make money off of struggling writers. 😀

  2. Thank you for sharing Colleen. Very informative. ☺☺
