the only time you show up here is to pimp your books.

Sorry Brian.

Hi, Brian. Yes. I want to tell people who might be interested to know about them. I am a writer. This is what I am interested in. I have to 'spread the word' wherever I can. I didn't think anyone minded! I don't want to write about unimportant things, that are just boring.
I could write that I made a rice pudding today. . . how interesting is that?
I do also help the Animal Rescue Centers here in Cyprus with proceeds from my books. This is another reason why I try to promote them. There are so many abandoned dogs and cats here and the rescue centers need all the help they can get. My last book saved 7 dogs and got 6 ferral cats neutered. But if I didn't tell people about my books, they wouldn't sell, and this wouldn't have happened.
Can I ask what you write about? My latest book is based on my life story, that's why I chose to post it on this site.

hi Diane

I didn't mean it to be rude, but this is a community of people sharing their life stories here & reacting to each other, and by default coming her -only- to sell yours makes it seem like yours are worth more than ours.

You can see what I write about by looking at my stories.

If you came in once in a while and encouraged people by commenting or posted a story once in a while then I could understand. There are lots of published authors on here. But they also contribute to the site, interact with people, not just sell their work. I'm sure your work is good, & def for a good cause, but this is also a community of people sharing here, so if you give a little too and i'm guessin people will be more receptive to buying. Lots of really good stories and writers here who aren't asking people to pay to read them. So interact once in a while, don't use us just as a place to sell.

My two cents. Others may disagree.

Hi, Brian

OK, Brian. Point taken.
I have not been on this site for ages!!! I forgot what it was all about to be truthful. I just got a memo to say I've not been on for a while, so I just put a mention of my life story book.

I have been grieving the death of my lovely mum and it has taken me such a long time to 'get back into anything'.

I looked at your site, you seem to be very good at skiing!
My grandson, who is 17 is really into skateboarding. He lives in the UK andI live in Cyprus, so I don't se him!

Good luck and take care! -I will try to get onto this to write things other than about my books. Time has been very short lately, and the publishers are on my back to promote..promote...promote!! I am not good at that, and not 'techie' at all! It's all beyond me. I'm far too old!

That's why I took the liberty of using this site. I thought that was what it was for. - But I understand what you are saying.
Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks Brian

Hi, Brian.
Thank you for bothering to reply to me. I feel that I have inadversantly found a friend, by making a mistake.
You are right about the publishing busines. It's very difficult to get a book published these days, and apart from writing it, I have to edit it, make sure every i is dotted, every t is crossed, all the punctuation is correct etc. etc. Or pay $2000 to have it done. I can't afford that...(And I want the money from sales to go to help the poor neglected animals.)
Then, after all that hard work and dedication; blood, sweat and tears, you have to 'sell' your books!
The days when publshers did all that have gone, especially if you are not a well now writer, or a celeb who probably never wrote a word themselves. Can't imagine Cilla Black, Katie Price, or Susan Boyle writing a whole book! 
I only know how to use Word to write, the rest is all beyond me. But I am trying! Very trying! :-(
I have joined Facebook and try to mention my books there. But it's hit and miss. If nobody knows about them, to look on Amazon, well it has all been a waste of time... And I mean half my life, stuck in a room with my PC!
Thanks for the tip. I will give it a go. Cheers!
