If you like m/m romance, try Louis J. Harris' Stars Fall. <3 it.

No point I Byrne, this thread was started by someone to spam their own book a few years ago but they then deleted the OP. It resurfaces every now and again with someone spamming though.

When you say 'a great self published book' give us a clue of your tastes. One man's meat and all that. I have read a couple of SPs which should have been snapped up by a traditional publishing house.

I so agree.

Because nobody goes there! Mwah ha hahrgh!

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!

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.

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

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

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

That's the point of a forum isn't it? A bit of frivvle...

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.

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

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

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

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Mar 2013, 21:03:42 GMT
Is the neg brigade having a go at you?

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

Posted on 20 Mar 2013, 20:57:55 GMT
Mwah ha ha ha hargh... me thinks the 'translation' is probably more interesting than the book.

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Mar 2013, 20:55:31 GMT
gille liath says:
Well...I took a few liberties to make it more idiomatic. :)

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Mar 2013, 20:51:13 GMT
Anita says:
Hmmm... if that is word-for-word translation, English language looks a bit redundant...

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.'

Never knew you speak (read? write?) Polish - ?

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Mar 2013, 20:01:22 GMT
gille liath says:
Absolutely. In the words of his biography's blurb, 'angielski snookerzysta, mistrz Å?wiata z 2002 roku.' I couldn't have put it better.

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

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.
