Quite boring, really. Have faffed about with computers since the mid-80s, have worked as a network engineer, unix sysadmin and (occasionally) developer.

comment Fan Fiction: a crutch or a good start?
I'd probably say "original" instead of "real", but, yeah.

comment Can I self-publish, and how much would it cost?
@QuickerSnarkerBacker From what I understand, "not much". Their primary selling-market is the authors who they vanity-publish, to whom they will sell copies they can then give or sell on. There may be books printed and ware-housed, but in general vanity publishing is more full of "don't go there" than not.

I wasn't entirely sure before posting the question, but I suspect there's enough differences in "signals shady" that I thought it better to post this question as well (I am aware of the other question, being the one who posted it).

revised Could I reach the level of good writing style as non-native language speaker?
Ooops, missed two crucials words, Hannu wrote the book in English, of course.
