The New Death and others.
I've recently put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's mostly fantasy short stories. My influences include:

J.R.R. Tolkien
Terry Pratchett
Ursula K. Le Guin
HP Lovecraft
Robert E. Howard
Clark Ashton Smith
Lord Dunsany

It's 99c from either Amazon (kindle only) or Smashwords (variety of formats).

Or, if you want a free copy, you can write a review on your blog or any relevant forum. Let me know your contact email, where you'll put the review, and what file format you prefer.

You can also download samples from both Amazon and Smashwords.

They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.
But I'm going to, and I reckon your book is shit.

If your insult is
that my book is only as good as the cover picture, then you just failed at insults.

I could,
but I don't want to.

you see, this is what makes you a stupid cunt
That's a perfectly reasonable request not to post a massive picture on a text based board which people often look at while at work.

Why would you reply like a petulant child?

I bet it's great.

Oh yeah email me a copy and I'll do a review for you on offtopic.
Just to let you know I am brutally honest and won't be swayed into writing a good review by bribes to my paypal account (details on request)

If you're really going to write a review, in a separate thread to this one,
then gaz me your email and what file format you want.

Please get rid of the image.
And don't push your products here again. Thanks.

It's weird isn't it? It's not the first time I've seen it happen on here.
"If you like my lies on Qotw you'll love my self published lies you have to pay for"

Yep. Could be (a bit) worse though - could be something written by SpankyHanky.

But people
do love what I write on QOTW. That's why I keep getting on the 'best of' page.

He got a roasting last time he did this.
So he's either really forgetful or monumentally arrogant.

complete cock-end gets my vote.
Be a shame if he pissed people off enough for them to write negative reviews on Amazon, not that I condone or would do such a things you understand.

I did the last time I bothered to vote.
I see no reason to change my voting habits.

It would be a real shame if anyone did that.
shame it takes reviews 48 hours to appear on Amazon
(, Thu 29 Sep 2011, 16:19, Reply)
You'd have to buy a copy to write a review
so...

actually, it would destroy me if anyone did that. Please don't.

If by 'monumentally arrogant'
you mean 'isn't swayed by fear of impotent internet tantrums', then yes, I'm monumentally arrogant.
(, Thu 29 Sep 2011, 18:09, Reply)
No tantrum here, chief
I just find your drumming for business distasteful. Especially since, in my opinion, you're no good at what you're selling.

I can't remember anyone here saying anything positive about it, yet here you are, certain that you're good enough. That insinuates arrogance.
(, Thu 29 Sep 2011, 19:56, Reply)
are you basing that opinion
on the QOTW responses that keep winning, the short stories that keep getting published, or the book you refuse to read?
(, Fri 30 Sep 2011, 7:56, Reply)
The stuff, of yours, that I have read, that I think is shit.
I also think a lot of other published stuff is shit. The fact that your stuff gets published doesn't stop me from thinking it's shit. The legions of chick lit getting published all the time backs me up on this one. Stuff that gets published isn't automatically of any literary worth.

Neither is yours.

Cock right off.
With those influences it should be right up my street, but you have ensured I will never, ever read anything you write.

ever.
(, Thu 29 Sep 2011, 16:09, Reply)
Isn't threatening not to read something
that "should be right up your street" a bit like threatening to cut your own fingers off?
(, Thu 29 Sep 2011, 18:05, Reply)
Nope, it's refusing to give you money because I think your a cock.
There are already more books in the world than I can ever read, even if we limit it to the one's I'd like. I'll give my money to someone who does not spam and act like a knobber.

Going by the way you write
I'm surprised there are any books in the world you can read.

Terry Pratchett is a shit, Alzheimer's cunt.
Hopefully he will influence you by giving you an incurable degenerative disease.

I'm pretty sure
that neither Alzheimer's nor insults work how you think they work.

If you don't like TP,

so your insult,
not to Terry Pratchett, but to me, is that Terry Pratchett has Alzheimer's?

That's...that's not how you do that.

I'd say
'can do better', but maybe you can't.
(, Thu 29 Sep 2011, 18:12, Reply)
Maybe I can't
but if someone asked me to remove the image I had posted I would respect their wishes - something you seem unwilling to do with your image.

This surprises me as you've participated on this site for quite a while, so I'd expect you to respect a largely un-written but mainly adhered to "rule" to abide by the wishes of the majority.

The reason why I'm in no mood to be conciliatory
is left as an exercise for the reader.

I think it's pretty clear why, you've got your knickers in a twist because you're trying to advertise
On a board where the overwhelming response has been that your work isn't very good, and yet you persist.

If I'd made that picture
I, too, would be eager to remove it.
(, Fri 30 Sep 2011, 7:55, Reply)
You've not got a comeback to the point i've made twice now
that by refusing to remove the huge image on the main board, you're simply being a petulant fool.

Oh, and winning QOTW isn't exactly hard, I wouldn't judge your writing standards by that.

You're that hilarious pun writer
They're mercifully short though, I'll give you that.
