James A Bresco writes on,Frank Clement-Lorford,Author of,Alexis Soyer.The First Celebrity Chef.

The First Celebrity Chef.

I think it's safe to say that Frank decided to write about Alexis Soyer for several reasons; the foremost being that, he was at one time, married to Alexis Soyer's great, great Granddaughter and, having a vested interest, Frank began his research into Alexis Soyer in the late 1990s. It wasn't long before Frank discovered that very little was known about Alexis Soyer, even by his own family. The second reason, I believe was, that due to a sense of fairness, Frank decided that Alexis Soyer, a French Chef of the Victorian period; who was to become the most celebrated Chef of the era, deserved better, and set out to write Alexis Soyer's Biography. It took many years of research and, a great deal of patience; due in part, to the many erroneous statements written about Soyer over the years, and sadly, much of Alexis' story remains untold, mainly because it was impossible to find supporting evidence for certain events. However, realising that writing about characters like; Alexis Soyer, were very rare, he continued, until finally, the manuscript was finished and, published with Amazon Kindle on September the 6th, 2011.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
