Discuss and talk about any general topic.
I've written a book which is essentially a dating checklist for men.
Who wants to give me an honest and fair review? Send me a private message and I'll send you the PDF. It's about 12,000 words and will take roughly an hour or so to read.
Any negatives? Anything I could change or fix or improve?
Yes I got it. I'm making changes now. Check your inbox in a minute as I have some questions.
Haha, yes I was actually think about you when I started this thread. Just send me a pm with your email address and I'll send you the PDF. I think you'll like it.
Because of the nature of my book, I'm a bit worried about falling foul of their rules on what is considered offensive or unacceptable. But David Icke says all sorts os things about famous people and he makes lots of very serious accusations, but his books are on amazon, even though from what I read in amazon's rules, I would have thought that practially all of his books would be banned.
My book is a bit critical of women at times, so I wonder if it's within the rules or not.
Does anyone know what the deal is with that?
As long as it's not outright offensive (hate speech, etc.), you should be fine: https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A2TOZW0SV7IR1U
Anyone else? Come on, who else wants to look at my book and give their opinion?
Right, you lot, my book is finished and it's on Amazon. Check it out : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K5ZHTCW
If you want a free copy I'll send one to you if you write me a review.

Thanks. I followed all of your advice. I changed Ok to OK, I added commas whereas before I wouldn't have (i.e. "watch out, she's" or, "watch out, she'll"), and I read every sentence and made lots of corrections (i.e. splitting up a sentence into 2 if it was too long). I didn't hire a proofreader, I just did it myself, but I do think I've done a reasonable job. I was pretty ruthless. I also used Ginger to spot a lot of errors that the regular spell check on Libreoffice didn't catch. When I read through the whole thing I couldn't find a single typo or spelling mistake. And I did it all from start to finish in 25 days, including the learning curve, reading loads of books and articles, etc. I'm feeling so much relief now.
The only thing that concerns me slightly is the fact that although dating in itself is a big market, there are very few books out there that are of the same nature as mine. At least for men. So I'm not sure what's going to happen.
The two categories that I chose are : motivational / self help and relationships (that may not be the exact wording). And I tested a few keywords, and it's not too bad. I'm on the 1st or 2nd position for some of them, but in others I'm nowhere.
My book is free on Amazon for 1 day.
