Sandra Giles meint:
No need, just come on over to the UK MOA forum. A lot of us talk over there all the time. Plus my email isn't working properly. Whenever I send a message it asks me if I really want to leave the page and then vanishes. Stupid thing.

Maybe it would be better to move our "discourse" off of Amazon altogether.

You can reach me -- if you like -- at RRBrklyn(at)aol(dot)com

Sandra Giles meint:
My original point was that I can't find anywhere to converse with anyone in English, and wanted to. I can't do that on MOA, though apparently it's not possible to do it anywhere else, either.

Sandra, Russel, I wish you'd relocate your discurse on the MAO Forum.
it's there for that.

Thanks very much for offering to add a sample. Yes, there are two reviews in the U. K. But in the interests of full disclosure, one of them was written by my publisher, Tim Roux.

I moved 54 copies last week (in the U. K.) -- largely thanks to a freebie promotion I did in conjunction with a PEACE DAY blitz. We'll see whether any of them results in an additional review.

In any case, think of "Trompe-l'oeil" (if you think of it at all) as an antidote to "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- a book I'd rather not comment on.

Can I eventually return the favor?

Oh, and by the way...why are you showing up on the Amazon.de boards and not on the Amazon.uk boards?

Sandra Giles meint:
My TBR list is very long at the moment, as writing takes up most of my free time, but I'll add a sample to my kindle :-) You have two reviews in the UK and both are good.
I have no objections to delayed conversations. Some of the ones on the UK forum are so fast that I can't keep up!

Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 18.08.2012 03:44:55 GMT+02:00

Oops. I just realized you're in the U. K. and not in dear old Deutschland.

Forgive me. (In any case, I believe the link is the same. All of the present reviews are at the Amazon U.S. site. No one's reading my books in the U. K. -- or if they are, they're not reviewing.)


Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 18.08.2012 03:40:48 GMT+02:00

I'm not sure I'd be the most ideal conversational partner (given the difference between our two time zones). But if it's an occasional exchange you're looking for, I may be your man.

And if you're looking for something (I modestly suggest) at tad more interesting and more carefully written than FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, may I suggest the book below?

Sandra Giles meint:
Dankeschön :-)
Apologies, that's about it for me with German, though I can ask whether I can go to the toilet. Our language lessons here are terrible at best.
I can't actually find anyone who has discussions over on MOA. They all drop links and scarper. On the UK site we talk, albeit most of it is utter nonsense.

someguy meint:
Hi! Not trying to stir the pot or cause any trouble, but just wanted to lend another perspective to the discussion. I've released some books on amazon, and I can say from experience trying to promote in the MOA pages that they are pretty much completely useless. The only people who go there are the authors looking to promote, no prospective readers. I know it doesn't work with authors spamming in the reader forums, it ruins them. I kind of wish Amazon would come up with a solution, like maybe if you purchase an indie author's work after linking to it through a post in the MOA's page, then you can buy it at a discounted price(maybe 10% off). Something that would give readers a reason to go to the MOA forums, so that the authors would have a way to promote their works without spamming or anything like that. Just an idea.

Hi Sandra,
We also have a MOA site: http://www.amazon.de/forum/englische%20b%C3%BCcher/ref=cm_cd_et_jump?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx2TF31S5NO2I73&cdPage=8&cdThread=Tx13PG83NBEZPDN#CustomerDiscussionsLPIT

Sandra Giles meint:
Apologies on behalf of other writers. I keep my promotions to the MOA forum, and even then it's rare for me to post. My sales aren't helped by posting in places where readers barely venture.
I find the site a little hard to navigate, so can anyone help me as to where I can join in with discussions that are in English? We have many over on the UK site where writers and readers alike talk to one another about whatever springs to mind, but I can't find anything of the sorts over here. It's a shame, because my sale here are better than those in the UK, so it would be nice to get involved. I tried setting up a thread on MOA, but conversation died out. Oh, and sorry for rambling!

Okay, Leser-Kumpels,

Keine Eigenwerbung. Wenn man überhaupt ein Interesse daran hat 'the King's English' zu lesen, bitte ich Sie darum, TROMPE-l'OEIL nachzuschauen. Das Buch ist hier in Amazon de -- ich aber nicht. (Mein Computer und ich? Wir sind in Brooklyn, New York, USA.) Es und dessen Preis werden ab Mittwoch und über 48 Stünden auf umsonst/Null gesetzt.

Leben Sie und lesen Sie wohl! Ich danke Ihnen herzlichst.

Carma Chan meint:
I am certain that if the peeps of a movie star who wrote a book posted a promo here, it would be a different story. It is interesting that most people do not know the name of the person who wrote their favorite movie. Most writers hate publicity anyway, which is why they are so bad at it.

yes it is my real name
and I live in Tarzana, California (home of the creator of Tarzan:)

tiriko meint:
Da schubs ich doch gerne mit.
Eben wegen dieser Eigenwerbungen schau ich nur noch selten in die Foren.
Vielen Dank sista A. Übrigens mir gings bezüglich "Frühstücksfleich" wie Englisches Buch - zum Kringeln.
Macht weiter so.

Okay, and another one from me cause I found an interesting discussion, bout 250 entrys and more than two third are just author-spam-phleghm or worse. I found just a 10% worth reading, if I could like I would...

Seem to me they are just not interested in (their) readers.

Und nochmal Bump!
I am astonished about the lack of respect many self-proclaimed writers show towards us and our intellect. Don't they realize, they're harming themselves?

You are right, it is worse than ever. How can this be? I never ever imagined writers -- of all the people in the world! -- to be able to diminish my fun in talking about books.

*tired bump*
