I'm looking for a great new book to read. Iv just finished a new book called Penitent by author steven clarkin. It was an amazing original book but now I need something else to read??? The author doesn't appear to have any other books as far as I can tell but if anyone knows different I would appreciate a heads up

The Raw Shark Texts

Loved this book after it was recommended to me. Well worth a look.

War of Nutrition

:) I read it in it's early stages, and loved it then. Haven't read it again yet but I bet it's even better!

[[ASIN:0956079520 Killing in Time: How Well Do We Know the Ones We Love? (Killing Crimes)]

Hello,
I am certain that this book will be a compelling thriller for you.....evil in the most blessed of lives, subtle and overt themes, multiple points of view, and a mystery that deepens, then complete clarity with crimes that fit within one another. A competent, complex and likeable heroine, and a chance to look at your own life and relationships. I hope that you enjoy it .

Here we go again! The only feedback this warrants is that self-recommendation is usually worthless. Nor is self-promotion welcome or permitted in these threads - apart from within the "Meet Our Authors" forum.

A self reviewer - which normally indicates the book is a big bucket of toss.

Pig Island - This is, by far, the worse book I have ever read. It's nonsense. I only read it because I liked the author and it was recommended by another famous author. Read the customer reviews on this crappy book and then decide if you like it.

Surely people shouldn't be able to recommend their own books? I might write my own boook and give it a jolly good rating!!!!

Mark, no offence: have you just fallen down from the sky? Have a look at some other threads, and you'll see them almost dead with self-promotion plague, with perhaps a handful of idiots still trying to hold against it...

Garscadden says:
But there are traditionally published authors who spam too - and write shill reviews. One who is always going on about selling millions of books, but who has had a number of reviews removed for (using Amazon's term), being "shill reviews"

I don't really care if a spammer is self published or traditionally published - it's still not allowed by Amazon on this forum.

G. M. Dobbs,
whatever the risk to offend you, I think I'll take it. But you are a perfect example of spammers egocentricity. If I say, quote myself, <threads> "almost dead with self-promotion plague", I DO NOT mean YOU by plague. I mean HUNDREDS of spammers, including you, perhaps.

Thanks, if ever I want your book, I'll buy it. I'm not THAT short of money. Alas, I'm MORE THAN THAT short of time
