Arrow New Book: Soliciting Stories

I'm writing a book on casino advantage play tactics (of all varieties). I'm posting to see if anyone has an advantage play story or two he would be interested in sharing in the book. The criteria I'm looking for are funny and/or educational. PM if interested.

Just saw this post. Good luck with the book. I would help but I might write a similar book if I ever get bored. I think I have enough stories of my own. Would be more funny than educational. Perhaps JJ could ghost write for me.

Get out of here; you're not writing a book. Just ship those stories my way, and they're guaranteed to get into print!

[ ] With your obvious magnetic personality you should have no problem soliciting stories from a wide network of friends, contacts, and other colleagues.

Probably going with CreateSpace, or maybe Lulu. It seems that authors get a tremendously higher cut with them than with traditional publishers.

So you want us to type up stories so you can create a PDF to sell on Lulu. They are guaranteed to get into print on your home printer.

For years you have failed to write something significant here. Now online poker is closed and you have appointed yourself editor and publisher. Wow.

It would be EPUB if it were an ebook, not a PDF. But, CreateSpace makes actual books, not just ebooks. In fact, if you wanted to publish an ebook with Amazon, the Kindle Store is generally a better bet than CreateSpace. Lulu can go either way.

Something tells me you don't have any actual casino advantage play stories anyway. I'm not looking for stories about teaching university students.

Read my old posts at BJ21. But this is your book, and you haven't posted any interesting stories. Don't knock universities - it's time for you to take a writing class.
