Default Finally, the book you have all been waiting for

Well at last my meisterwerk is complete and in true Middle East fashion I would like to blame several people for the delays in finishing it off:
  • the illustrator who disappeared for three weeks
  • the editor who had a mental breakdown *
  • my company for forcing me to work when I could have been writing
*breakdown unrelated to quality of my prose

Anyhow it is available in both paperback and kindle:
Paperback
Kindle

As I may have described earlier it is a novel set in the Middle East but more about the individual than the region to be fair.

Thanks for all the title suggestions and big thanks to jam25mack who came up with the final title.

Send me a pm and I will send you a free copy on kindle format, and for no extra cost will sign your email up to russian-brides.com.

The only request I have in return is that if you manage to finish it, please review it honestly on Amazon. I am aiming for two markets with this strategy; the so good you must buy it market and the so bad you must buy it market.

Its a story of the rags to riches (and back to rags) transformation of a mediocre football club bought by a bunch of Arabs.

I've just read the first couple of chapters available online and it seems pretty good so far.

I'll send you a pm for a copy as kindly offered.

Cheers.

Thanks, as it happens (regardless of how good or bad it is) it has been one of the hardest things I ever completed. It took a lot of focus to see it through, I have a new respect for actual writers.

It's amazing you did it. I've been trying to write my book for about 2 years, I have about 4 chapters so far. Totally stuck, and also no time. Then I start writing something else instead to try and get going again but it doesn't really work.

I bought it :-) happy to support a fellow writer.

Massive well done on getting it finished; impressive feat.

Very generous of you, I believe your action has moved me from amateur to professional status. Now to retire from messing about with concrete and the like.

Great job mate. I know it is immensely difficult to write a decent set of lines, let alone a book! Congratulations!
