Marcus, good point, more of the previously untold story, or the story that has remained untold (probably for legal reasons) until now.

gille, is he interesting enough for a whole chapter?

Please read Amazon's announcement at the top of the thread - authors are not permitted to promote other than in the Meet our Authors forum.

I received an email from Amazon today with an offer of 6 cans of Spam for 16.90, felt like replying 'no thanks I get more than enough for free in the Fiction Forum!

If building a load of big hotels is interesting enough, why on earth not the man who combines world snooker championship-winning ability with the sensitivity to cover Norman Wisdom's Don't Laugh At Me Cause I'm a Fool? He's the Renaissance Man of tax avoidance (which perhaps makes it surprising that Amazon stock his biography only in Polish, you'd have thought they'd make him a poster boy).

Mind you, he's still not as interesting as Steve Davis.

A bit more interesting than I realised, and who could be as interesting as 'interesting Steve Davis'?

Absolutely. In the words of his biography's blurb, 'angielski snookerzysta, mistrz ?wiata z 2002 roku.' I couldn't have put it better.

You'd be amazed at the languages I can copy & paste.

The approximate meaning of the above is, 'pony-tailed hippy turned Daily Mail-reading baldie Ebdon, 43, fled to Dubai for tax reasons - I mean, because they have great snooker facilities and a beach in the shape of a pineapple stalk - but has since had a better offer from Hungary.'

Hmmm... if that is word-for-word translation, English language looks a bit redundant...

Well...I took a few liberties to make it more idiomatic. :)

Mwah ha ha ha hargh... me thinks the 'translation' is probably more interesting than the book.

Who's got offended about what I said of English language?? :)

Is the neg brigade having a go at you?

Normally I get more attention from them, but this particular post negged does look funny

It makes you stand out from the crowd though - at the moment anyway.

Maybe whoever-it-is thinks we're being too frivolous on the subject of the great Ebbo.

They have come to the wrong place then, we are generally frivolous about most things. No-one is safe from the frivolity of the Forum.

Posted on 20 Mar 2013 21:49:32 GMT
That's the point of a forum isn't it? A bit of frivvle...

A good book that I would recommend is Take Control of your Life. Here is the link to purchase it Take Control of your Life: How to Improve your Life, Confidence & Success and Overcome Stress, Depression and Anxiety

I would advise against *any* self-help rubbish, and especially self-promoted.

Help yourself with it, sir (that's an intentional double entendre, actually)

Do not use these discussion forums to promote your own book. It is both unwelcome and against Amazon rules. From the "Important Announcement from Amazon":

"With the advent of the new (`Meet Our Authors') community, we will no longer allow self-promotional posts in other communities.

Starting on December 15, 2011, all "shameless self-promotion" activity will be limited to the `Meet Our Authors' community."

Put your spam in the "Meet Our Authors" forum. That's what it's for.

Interesting (and possibly appropriate) that this should be recommended within the "Fiction" forum. However, I think most of these self-help books might be better placed in the "Fantasy" section!

In reply to an earlier post on 21 Aug 2013 11:24:52 BDT
Because nobody goes there! Mwah ha hahrgh!

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Aug 2013 09:31:26 BDT
I so agree.
