Synopsis updated. Slight tweaks to appeal more to readers. Final touches are being put in place.

Marquis “Move Out” Mariolis had huge aspirations of using his athletic ability to change his life leaving behind his mischievous ways as a teen. With the help of his high school coach, Move Out began to mature into a distinguished young man. His entire life changed when a lie brought his world to a crashing halt. Although the truth eventually prevailed, the damage done to his life and goals set him on a new path. Obtaining influential guidance from those who learned from past mistakes, Move Out adapted to his new journey. As an adult, he developed even larger goals to ensure the youth from his community didn’t follow criminal ways. He sought to make a difference in his community and the world. Marquis built a hidden empire without the help of his extremely successful friends to offer them full deniability. His plan was to use the resources from his empire to witness his goals come to fruition. Move Out's ultimate goal was centered around getting the underprivileged to the upper echelon of motorcycle racing. While striving to make a difference, him and his five closest friends lived like tomorrow would never arrive. Throughout his journey, Move Out learned the best-laid plans can go awry even with the best intentions in mind.

You know, I am starting to appreciate people, especially people who I have limited contact with, more and more.

I'm getting feedback as people get into the book or they finally finish it. Being honest with myself as always, as well as the community, a bulk of the feedback is good, some is neutral, and there are some criticism points. For one, people say they can see the engineer in me coming through the book, and although it's not a horrible thing, it doesn't offer the smootest read as some seasoned writers.

On another note, people seem to enjoy the story line. I have been told that the characters are well developed, but somethings are a little different than the traditional format. I was told this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just not the norm.

I have been asked when is the sequel coming by a few, and one written review called the book a diamond in the rough.

For a first time novelist, I guess that isn't too bad.

One other thing, I did notice that reviews and outlooks toward characters' personality and the dialogue varied between people's sex/race/hobbies/lifestyle choices. This shows how some people think alike while others may have a different line of thinking even when these individuals don't know each other from a can of paint.

A quick update.

The book is doing well. I'm also starting to get more feedback from people.

Can you sell it through Amazon so those of us outside the USA might stand a chance of getting a copy
Actually, I may have a solution for international shipping for a lot cheaper than what it's currently listed for. I'll update international shipping prices either today or tomorrow as soon as I confirm it.

My apologies on the getting the pricing updated. I have what the new pricing should be, but I just have to get the weight confirmed.

There's no excuses in business, but I will ask for you all to pray for me. The delay was caused by a Ford F-150 plowing into the back on me this week. Between going to the hospital, and taking care of other matters in regard to the accident, my weekly schedule/plans were altered.

Working on printing another 100. I'm shocked how these things are flying out. Two reviews posted so far.

Okay. So, many people have been inquiring about a second book. Oh, when's the next one coming? Are you going to write a second one? You have to follow this up with another book! Will there be a sequel?

I've been pondering, thinking, and plotting. I've received some great feedback, and I've been thinking about what people would like to see transpire. I have some twists for your @ss coming in the next one. I'm about to start punching the keys for the second one - literally.

I've finally dropped back into the forum due to my hectic lifestyle and this is the first thread I came searching.

Congratulations on completing the book! It's definitely an accomplishment and I find the most difficult thing about having a book is its promotion. Hopefully it will sell to your expectations and beyond.

I just published my third book and am trying to get myself to actually start working on promoting them a bit more seriously. It's just difficult finding the time.

Congrats on your third book. That's a serious accomplishment. I don't have to tell you as you already know.

I've actually started working on the sequel by demand, and in the interim, I'm trying to get more copies out there. The promotion/marketing can be a little difficult at times, but it's worth it when copies get sold to strangers. One gets to experience first hand their hard work paying off. My biggest disappointment is when so many people who I thought would support, didn't, and that's even after they said they would. Such as life/business. It's all good though.

Thanks for chimming in, and feel free to PM a link to your book(s).

Get your copy today and start reading it. The anticipated sequel is just about half way complete. Make sure you read the book before the movie hits the big screen. I'm telling you, you need to read this. For those who love to see their portfolios rise because of the stock market, love knee and elbow dragging around a banked decresaing or increasing radius turn, smart-sexy-successful women on motorcycles (handsome-sucessful men for the ladies), good food, beer, and lots of fun, you need to read this book. It was written just for YOU!
