Help Support the Awards

One of the reasons I run the awards is as a way to help support other authors as well as cover artists and trailer producers. However I also view is a partial alternative to traditional promotion methods. I choose to put my time into helping others rather than just helping myself but as an author I http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifstill need to raise awareness.

I just wanted to pass along this great review from Long and Short Rhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifeviews for my novel, The Gender Divide.

http://longandshortreviews.blogspot.com/2011/02/gender-divide-by-david-boultbee.html

If you are a science fiction / romance fan or know one, check out The Gender Divide or my novella Venus Inferno. Both are available for the Kindle, as well as a variety of other ebook formats.

Cheers and thanks

David

Title: Lost Technologies of the Great Pyramid

Trailer Producer: Steven Myers
Genre: New Age
Links:
http://www.thepump.org/

Description:
Transcending the fables and misinformation of modern Egyptology, this book provides a detailed description of how the Great Pyramid was really built! New discoveries of lost technologies used to build this massive wonder are the focus of this book! Independent researcher, lecturer and author, Steven Myers explains what really happened as the Great Pyramid was built. He describes the fascinating and unique building process from the initial surveying, all the way to the placement of the capstone! The Original Builders were geniuses who possessed advanced understanding which they used to develop sophisticated technology. Using these advanced technologies they were able to create the wonder we call the Great Pyramid. Extensively illustrated, this book describes how the massive stones were moved from the quarries and set in place with extreme precision. Using the lost technologies described in this book, the Great Pyramid was assembled effortlessly without the unworkable notion of a gigantic ramp. This book also examines modern Egyptology's unprovable explanations of how the Great Pyramid was built and offers a fresh and exciting alternative! Steven Myers feels that the Great Pyramid is not just an irrelevant ancient structure. He contends that the Great Pyramid was built using advanced technologies which need to be redeveloped in our modern age. The most important aspect of this book is the contention that these ancient, but highly advanced technologies, can vastly improve our modern but very troubled world!
