Hello everyone,

I'd like to tell you about Sick of Being Me by Sean Egan, which is now available in Kindle format after having first been published to acclaim in paperback in 2003. We've priced the Kindle edition competitively - 99p from the UK amazon site $1.49 from the US site

It's the alternately exhilarating and harrowing story of guitarist Paul Hazelwood, from his childhood on a London council estate where he nurtures his dreams of stardom to his agonising realisation on the cusp of his thirties that talent doesn't necessarily bring success. The book comes with endorsements from Charles R. Cross, author of Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography Of Kurt Cobain, well known rock critic Richie Unterberger, Gary Valentine (formerly of Blondie), Frank Allen (The Searchers) and John Steel and Vic Briggs (The Animals). We're also proud to say that it garnered some remarkable reviews (e.g., "Something of Roddy Doyle's gritty realism in the dialogue.. Harrowing descriptions of junkiedom rival Irving Welsh. A snorting good read." Nigel Williamson, Uncut magazine, December 2003.)

Hope this is of interest to you and look forward to any reaction any of you might have to the book.

Best wishes,

Malcolm chapman

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on Sean's book!

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--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

--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).

--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 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:,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

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