    I wrote a book that may be of interest to some people on this board. I advertised it before, I think, but I cannot find the old thread. In any event, I would like to get permission to share it so I can get some reviews on Amazon...maybe a couple shares on social media?

    It is a short book. I am not looking to pay anyone to influence a good review. Brutal honesty is best.

    What's it about? I've been known to read a book or two.

    It is called THE SEARCH FOR THE WARRIOR'S PATH, and it is about a general overview of the wild and whacky world of martial arts.

    If you're selling the book, then you need to pony up a few bucks for advertising.
    The simple way is to become a supporting member. There's a link at the bottom of every page.

    I'm not selling it...not here anyway. I was looking to give out free copies to get reviews on Amazon.

    That's still selling it.
    You can offer free copies here (and if you want reviews, I think that is an excellent idea, and would happily review your book myself), but without any link or advertising for the commercial side of it.
    Or, you can become a supporting member (which costs something like $20 or $25 a year...) and post a link to Amazon.

    Right, but when you said "if you are looking to sell it..." and then directed me to being a supporting member, I thought you were saying if I wanted to sell it HERE, which is not the case.

    Can we attach documents via private messages here? If so, I can send a PDF of the book to you that way. If not, I need a way to get it to you.

    I apologize for not being clear.

    I do not think there is a way to send attachments through the message system here.
    I would suggest that those wishing to provide reviews contact you via the messaging system and provide you with their email address (please do not post personal email addresses in public) and you can send them the PDF that way.

    I just wanted to say thank you to any and all on here who ordered this book, especially if you wind up posting a review.
