Hello John,

How are you? Remember me? I have returned here with the hope of resuming my writing and would really appreciate all the shelf life I can get for my books. I will return the favour.

Cheers
Naan

I want to thank everyone for their concern. Meant a lot. I hope everyone will let me know if they think they're dying so I can return the sentiments. Please don't respond to this cause then I'll have to respond and you'll feel obligated to respond back and it'll all be a pain in the ass for everybody and you'll wish I really had died.

Hello John,

I sent the below message recently. Just wondered if you were in a position to respond yet? Happy to reciprocate.

Hope you are well. Maybe you would like to try out my new satire, Doghouse Blues. Here is an endorsement:

I was attracted to Doghouse Blues from the pitch alone because it was so very different. There are so many budding writers out there who want to earn the same sort of money as J K Rowling by writing exactly the same kind of book and , to be frank, I am getting a bit tired of it.
This, on the other hand, struck me as being an original piece of work. The product of a lively mind and written by someone who is an excellent observer of the real world out there and who knows how to translate his observations into print. Just the right amount of dialogue, which carries the story along well.
I have not read the complete book (yet) but have dipped into it fairly freely to see if the momentum is maintained. It certainly is.
Philip John

Looking forward to reading your comments on the Doghouse Blues webpage.

All the best,

Clive

Hi John, I'm reading through books on the site, I got to you and nothings posted. Any chance you can take a look at mine and let me know when and if yours is up and I will be first in the queue?
Kind Regards

Hello, my name is James Revino. I am the author of ‘Hollow.’ I was wondering if you might be able to take a look at my work and tell me what you think, good and bad. Any critique would be much appreciated, it is the best way to improve. Of course, if you wanted to back it, that would be great as well. Have a good day, and thanks for your time.

John , you are one of the prolific reviewers here at authonomy, I'd appreciate it if you could have a look at a few passages of a very early draft of my play, Six Day, and leave your valuable pointers. Ankur

Hey, John, how are you?
I'm glad to see you've been published. You may not remember me, but I was pretty active on authonomy some years ago, before i retired my account. I've spent all this time working on edits of my old stories and writing new ones. The book which i have uploaded now has been through a complete transformation since the last time you read it. Could you spare some time, when you get the chance, and let me know what you think?

Hi. After I lost my son this year, I felt I had to write the story of my life. So much happened, I believe almost everybody can have something in common with me, good or bad. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Thank you

Hi John,

May I tempt you to read an unusual travelogue, “The Forest of Vulcanus” - my account as a UN peacekeeper in Africa? Your honest comments are welcomed.
Link is as below.
Best regards,

I bloody well hope not! Got lots more words in me. :)

Edit: misunderstood your comment. You were meaning backers. I read it in far more morose terms about it not being my last book. Doh!

Elsie W wrote 579 days ago   

Thanks, you're my first backer! x

"The Prince and the Singularity – A Circular Tale" is a book with one big advantage, one only needs to read the first 40 lines to know whether one is going to like the story or not. If after the first 40 lines you're not hooked, no need to bother reading the rest.

Since you have a gold-medal book on your shelf, leaving it there after that will no longer help your user ranking.
If you are looking for a new potential gold-medal book to put on your shelf within this month or next, please consider my novel called Solian Chronicles: Pluto Genesis. It is a positive Science Fiction novel of the near future that has gotten some very good reviews. Thank you for your consideration and I hope you have a good day.
