Links to Member Web-Pages

          Here is where you can find out about the life, interests, and books of our members. Just click on the name of the person to visit their Member Web-Page.  We encourage all members to contribute a biography and other information so we can better find common interests and share information. That is what this organization is all about.

          Books by individuals in Spokane Authors and Self-Publishers cover a wide range of topics, ideas, and genres.  Members and others are encouraged to purchase and read works by our fellow members, and to write and submit a review for inclusion on our “Book Review” page.

          If a name is underlined and highlighted in blue, there is a member web-page for that person.

If your name isn’t underlined and highlighted, it is time to start writing!  Please submit your biography, head shot, book information, and other pertinent information via email to our Webmaster, Dave McChesney or at  (Click here for more information about a Member Web-Page)


          We have provided Amazon ASINs for members’ books on Amazon and/or Kindle.  It is the ten digit numerical or alpha-numeric number accompanying each book on the member’s web-page.  Include it in the URL for Amazon/Kindle and it will take you direct to the listing for that book.  For example: (In this case, “B008TXC332” is the ASIN.) If it is alpha-numeric you will end up on the Kindle listing.  If it is completely numeric (example, “0595475442” you will end up at the paperback or hardback listing for the book.  In many cases you will be able to navigate to the alternate listing if available, and in some cases we have provided both.  You may not need the “www” and you may be able to shorten “amazon” to “amzn”
