Paul Stevens In this rollicking memoir author Paul Stevens recounts his efforts to become an ocean going sailor (at 60), a surfer (at 65), and a skier (at 68), by compensating his complete lack of sporting talent with sheer determination. Along the way he gets a new body, and a whole new outlook on life.

Paul Stevens [Important note: This article explores a simple method of making stock exchange profits from statistical arbitrage. This technique worked very well for me for months until I disobeyed some of my own basic rules and I then withdrew this article from Kindle. I want to be honest with you. I now believe that Trading is ultimately a Zero Sum game. In fact I specify this as one of the Sins in my article The 7 Deadly Stock Market Sins. If you don’t agree with me this, and are proving me wrong, and believe you can prove me wrong for as long as you continue to trade in the stock market, then you may wish consider the strategy set out in this article.

Paul Stevens So far I have written about 35 Titles. It’s taken about 12 months. I’ve lost count of how many revisions I’ve made to these books or articles in that time. A lot. And the reason is, each time I reread them I find more errors. Now if you are serious about taking advantage of the amazing self publishing platforms out there you do need to publish clean error free copy. Any book on e-book publishing will stress this. Else it will create a bad impression, one of amateurism and will probably result in reduced interest in your other Titles. But the one thing I have learnt over and over again is that proofreading is actually quite a difficult task. Difficult in that it is actually very difficult to pick up all the errors in your copy. How many times have you read it, sworn it was clean with no errors, only to reread it a few months later and you find another whole batch? I know I have. I’ve been tempted to use professional proofreaders but I have been determined to bootstrap myself up the publishing ladder all on my own efforts. No proofreaders, no cover designers, no editors, no nothing, just me. So when I stumbled on this amazingly effective technique you might say that firstly I am in a position to appreciate its value, and secondly to put a price on it. I would have been prepared to pay a tidy sum for this secret which I could then use effectively for my entire career as a writer. There is going to be many many a time you are going to thank me for this, trust me!

Paul Stevens The conventional wisdom is that you, a writer, must now become a full time marketer, spending endless hours facebooking away, websiting away, blogging away, and twittering way, all in return for what by most standards are very poor returns from self publishing. This Article suggests a technique that liberates you from the above yet is productive in sales terms at the same time.
Paul Stevens If you intend using Microsoft Word to prepare your document this is for you. Now here’s the thing. Word is actually a single computer program. But it is a very complex program with hundreds and hundreds of options and their possible combinations. And what are most of us authors? We probably haven’t had special Word training. No, what we do is to open Word and start typing. Sure we correct errors in spelling and syntax but basically we just default to whatever the current settings are. If you print the page out it looks great, so why shouldn’t it go onto Kindle just like that? In my case the Word document was set up in block format (in which the first word of a paragraph is not indented) and it introduced an extra line after each paragraph and it looked terrible on Kindle…too much white space between paragraphs. Search as I did I could not find an answer anywhere of how to suppress this additional spacing. At this stage I had produced about 12 titles on Kindle. I have had to go back and laboriously delete every additional superfluous line, and then republish the documents. In this short article I am going to give you the #1 secret to perfect formatting on Kindle for a Word document. You can buy a 100 page book or you can solve this issue in the next minute or two. If only I could have bought this article when I started! It’s taken me 10 months to find this out, but that’s maybe because I’m stupid. And what’s more I’ve waded through several books on formatting and never got a 100% answer to this. Well here it is and it’s all you’ll ever really need and it’s all set out in 1000 words. It is Word 2003 specific but the entered values are equally relevant to Word 2007 except that the click sequencing is a bit different.

Paul Stevens If you are or want to be a Kindle Author in some ways writing, editing and proofing your book is the least of your worries. Yes, it’s that blasted cover that is the thorn in your side. Sure you can recruit third parties to do it for you, but that is going to cost you precious $$$. As I’ve remarked in my Proofreading killer guide, I’m determined to bootstrap myself up the Kindle ladder. I’ve made some minor investments in buying images for $5 and I’ve bought a few Kindle How To books, but that’s it, and I’m showing a substantial profit on my investments, looking at it from a business point of view. But until now I too have struggled with this issue of a professional looking cover. They say you don’t judge a book by its cover but unfortunately that’s exactly what happens here in the Kindle world. I’ve tried my own hand at them and they all come out looking unprofessional or even worse, awful. But now I’ve invented an amazingly easy way to create professional covers IN MINUTES and FOR NOTHING once you have familiarized yourself with a few procedures. Of course you can buy kindle books of 100 or 200 pages or more or you can read this 900 word article and get to it without further ado! Well I know what I would do! There is going to be many many a time you are going to thank me for this, trust me!

Paul Stevens With the growing popularity of TV and Movie streaming internet streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Now, cable and satellite providers ( Pay TV) of these shows are increasingly on the back foot as more and more subscribers elect to cut the cord and simply switch completely to streaming. It is currently estimated that 70% of Netflix subscribers are planning to become cord cutters at some point in the future. However the one vice grip the Pay TV operators have on their subscribers is Sport. There are a few channels where sport can be streamed on a monthly subscription basis, but these services are mainly geared to US centric sports. If you are looking for the southern and northern hemisphere rugby union games, such as test matches amongst South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, England, France, Scotland, Ireland and Wales and the Super 15 Tournament outside the gambit of the big Pay TV operators, such as DSTV in South Africa, Sky Sports in the UK, Foxtel in Australia and The Rugby Channel in New Zealand, you are going to battle to see these games.
Paul Stevens Inside the Mind of a National Treasure is a Sci-fi Adventure that might be described as the Big Bang Theory meets Bond, all rolled up into a Forest Gump story. Pulp adventure, Spock, or Indiana Jones fans would like the story.
The story chronicles the development of a boy from Middle America who evolves a sixth sense and becomes the center in efforts to solve a National and Global threat. The threat is a mass psychosis resulting from synthetic and natural telepathic forces on populations and targeted individuals. Charlie’s continual series of adventures include his roles in many of America’s most recent events. The Story starts with the Apollo era and Cuban Missile Crisis, and leads into September 11th, The 2008 Financial Crisis, and modern Military and Banking scenarios. The story connects these events with an underlying theme and closes with Charlie advancing into a new adventure aboard a modern Aircraft Carrier Task Force, and into the global stage. Charlie is recruited as a toddler from a partner of his father’s barber shop. The group he joins is an ancient order, guardians, called the Communicators. Their role is to protect society, and humanity, by an enhanced sixth sense combined with a telepathic-like character. These individuals are chronicled in helping solve the Cuban missile crisis, and this leads into Charlie’s senior roles in more recent crises.
Charlie’s life starts in Middle America and it follows him through university and a Ph.D. in sciences from a leading Ivy League style school. His character continually evolves as he tackles an escalating series of crises, with the escalation of his sixth sense powers. Charlie is trained by a series of mentors; each impart special knowledge to him. Topics range from Karate, Science, the Social Elite, and the Military. Charlie’s character is left one step away from a superhero X-Men and he remains someone a normal person could evolve into. Chapters 1-3 define Charlie’s roots, Chapters 3-8 start the adventure. The story is set in the coastal regions of San Francisco to St. Petersburg FL, with time spent in Rome and Manhattan; it runs about 27,000 words. There is light science as well as Bond style action and adventure.
