Is there such thing as "kangtao" or surewin tips?

I have seen alot of people debating overrepparttar issues of this "kangtao" or surewin tips.In actual fact there"IS" however very few.But why does it fails us when it is is because some of these so called kangtao are "false information" released byrepparttar 105805 smaller bookmakers themselves to balance their balance sheet.for instance EPL match Arsenal vs Chelsea alot of people taking arsenal resulting in imbalance onrepparttar 105806 amount wagered on chelsea and these smaller bookmakers with nowhere to dump their excessive bets they will releasedrepparttar 105807 so called "kangtao" to entice ignorant punters to bet on chelsea to balance up their balance sheets.

Why are there so many "kangtao" or surewin tips for sales ?

I was bewildered why would any one give away a surewin tips at such low rate where they could earn 10 of thousands with it themselves? put youself in his shoes would you??? i must admit there are opportunites in soccerbetting and i would call that an edge with a "higher chances of winning" but to call them a surewin tips is an overated statement unless you are one ofrepparttar 105808 bribed key players or bribed key officials there is still a certainty of losing.

Live matches

Live matches are often 2 strong team faces each other and they are most likely to be telecast throughoutrepparttar 105809 world.why?it is because a lot of people likes to bet on sports that they are able to view live especially those recreation punters who gets real kick watching their favourites team play and also big-time soccer punters who bet 30K-50K per match.There isrepparttar 105810 jalan bet or live betting bet andrepparttar 105811 half-time bet which make it more interesting and more variety for punters to bet.These live matches are matches whererepparttar 105812 bookmakers makes lots of money throughrepparttar 105813 vigourish and fixed match.My advise to fresh punters is to bet small betting on live matches and focus more on those non-telecast match.Why? sincerepparttar 105814 non-telecast matches recieved little publicityrepparttar 105815 bookmakers doesn't mind feeding those new fresh punterse as they knew eventuallyrepparttar 105816 money would go back to them as time goes by due to human nature GREED.

How could you tell whether you Bookmaker/runner is trustworthy or dubious?

It is hard to differentiate as it is only by betting over a period of time before you could tell.but common signs includes setting a "high minimum bet" for instance minimum $5k.unlessrepparttar 105817 person is really someone whom you known for a very long time and you feel you could trust him chances are when you win he is no-where to be found.common flimsy excuses given includes bookie run away or bookie got arrested.Another common sign is they only open a few matches for punters to bet.come to think about it if he is really a bookmaker why should he restrictrepparttar 105818 no. of matches available for bets chances are those arerepparttar 105819 games he is confident of and would accept all those bets which is opossing him.

Publish Anything: The Saga of a PublishAmerica Author

Publish Anything: The Saga of a PublishAmerica Author By Lisa Maliga

My story is that an author who’d done online writing for such dot gones as Themestream, Written By Me, and The Vines, someone trying hard to have fiction, poetry and nonfiction in print for real, recommended PublishAmerica. She claimed it was a traditional book publisher. I was struck with their slogan, “We treat writersrepparttar old fashioned way – we pay them.” Wasn’t that what publishers were supposed to do?

But since my novel was just sitting onrepparttar 105804 DiskUs Publishing site and doing nothing but supplying me with enough money to buy a pair of skate laces every three months, I thought maybe it would have a better chance over at PublishAmerica where it would be available as a trade size paperback both on and off-line.

So this author, Ellen Du Bois, had a big thing on her Geocities site about books being available in brick & mortar bookstores & they’d have ISBN numbers and be online and all that stuff. Also had her full size book cover up so I sat there for 5 minutes waiting forrepparttar 105805 damn thing to appear. Not impressive, but she liked it. Ellen was a cheerleader for her book and sent reviews from a weekly community rag and she bulk e-mailed several pieces of correspondence during those heady days when her book was in prerelease, then release stage inrepparttar 105806 summer of ’03. I broke down and bought a copy from Amazon – took almost 3 weeks to get. And I struggled to read all 176 pages. Tripe. Clichés abounded. Spelling/grammatical errors weren’t there at least. Butrepparttar 105807 writing was thin. The story moved too quickly. The main character wasrepparttar 105808 most realistic as it was most likely based onrepparttar 105809 author. The dialogue was okay. The descriptions were minimal. Had there been a real editor,repparttar 105810 book could’ve been very good. I wrote to Ellen and told herrepparttar 105811 positive things aboutrepparttar 105812 story, avoidingrepparttar 105813 negativities. She’d been an online correspondent for almost two years, yet after I didn’t review her book on and Barnes & Noble she didn’t contact me. Almost a year later she sent me another e-mail – to promote a book of her poetry. I was just someone to sell a book to and she was only interested inrepparttar 105814 sale and hopefully a glowing write up.

A Future PublishAmerica Author Since I’d already signedrepparttar 105815 contract with PublishAmerica, I wanted to cancel it after reading that trash. Now my book would be affiliated with a company that put out just about any piece of writing that came its way. I wasn’t expecting much what with my dealings withrepparttar 105816 extinct eNovel and RJ’s eBooks, along with a tiny eBook publisher named Crafts Across America where I wasn’t paid monthly as promised. And my novel and short story collection languished at DiskUs, home ofrepparttar 105817 alleged Number One Best selling eBook author of all time, Leta Nolan Childers.

PublishAmerica sent me an author’s questionnaire where they asked for basic biographical information; cover art suggestions, and a long list of people who might want to read my forthcoming novel.

“Please prepare a list (names, and addresses,) of people who know you well enough to be interested in your success as a writer: personal friends, colleagues, relatives, etc., to receive a book announcement…Please limit your list and your labels to a maximum of 100 contacts. Also, please do not include businesses or organizations of any kind, including bookstores, media contacts, or government organizations. Include friends and associates only.”

The editing process of my manuscript took two weeks overrepparttar 105818 Christmas holidays. I was able to ascertain thatrepparttar 105819 first few pages had been read as some minor alterations had been made, but no changes followed for another 50 or so pages. One ofrepparttar 105820 errors that occurred was clearlyrepparttar 105821 result of a spellchecker onrepparttar 105822 part of PublishAmerica as a question mark appeared afterrepparttar 105823 end of a statement. I’d read of real authors receiving instructions to change chapters, alter endings, delete numerous pages, in other words, really struggle to rewrite a book. Why so much effort? Names. Reputation. The publisher wanted to put their name onrepparttar 105824 best quality book that they had invested in. The author wanted a book that was saleable but also well written and something they were proud of. PublishAmerica’s editing comprised neither ideal as all they did was putrepparttar 105825 computer program’s spelling/grammar checker into action.

My two free author’s copies arrived in early March and it was nice to see my trade paperback book in print sans a cheesy cover and stapled spine. ‘North of Sunset’ actually had decent looking stock cover art of a few silhouetted palm trees, a noticeable font, and a spine whererepparttar 105826 book title, publisher and author’s name was apparent. It would look good on bookstore shelves, I imagined.

Reviews – What Reviews? What was Publish America doing to make sure my book was reviewed? Nothing. I decided to contact local daily and weekly newspapers by e-mailing a press release. The only responses I got were two e-mail autoresponders announcingrepparttar 105827 editors were on vacation.

I spent $40 on copies of my book’s galley and mailed them to three national newspapers andrepparttar 105828 Library Journal magazine. Then I phoned a book reviewer atrepparttar 105829 ‘San Diego Union-Tribune’ and asked if he’d be interested in reviewing my book but before I could even describe what it was about, he asked who my publisher was. I told him. “We don’t review books by that publisher,” he stated.

I called allrepparttar 105830 local bookstores and spoke torepparttar 105831 managers and/ or community relations people about my book, including a couple of stores who were physically located onrepparttar 105832 street I’d written about. An independent bookstore owner told me that since PA didn’t have a return policy she was unable to stock my novel. Another said that I could sell my book on consignment. The chain stores of Borders and Barnes & Noble said my book would be available through Ingram if anyone chose to order it.

Tried getting PublishAmerica to send review copies out and it took them weeks to do so. Had to call and make sure on two occasions thatrepparttar 105833 books had been mailed. Maybe quoting one of their enthusiastic promoters onrepparttar 105834 message board, a guy with a natural genius for marketing andrepparttar 105835 budget to back it up, got three books sent to reviewers.

Then I sent my book to Piers Anthony, noted sci-fi and fantasy author of more than 100 books. I’d been in touch with him since 2000 when I alerted him torepparttar 105836 fact that eNovel was a rip-off. Althoughrepparttar 105837 action in his books usually took place in alternate time periods/universes, he didn’t mind reading a mainstream Hollywood novel. He did so. "North of Sunset by Lisa Maliga. She'srepparttar 105838 one listed in my Survey as I'm a Published Novelist Ha Ha! Ha!, a pertinent warning for starry-eyed aspiring writers. Her web site is worth checking similarly; she tells it as it is. If you took a few decades off my age and changed my gender,repparttar 105839 result might resemble Lisa. North of Sunset is fun, about a Hollywood producer and his temporary secretary, showing a good deal of what I presume is reality. It is written withrepparttar 105840 omniscient viewpoint, which I dislike, but it held my interest regardless. "
