    Yeah, so I wrote a book about cars and stuff at the age of 14, and I'm pretty proud of it, so I figured to just make a quick post about it here. And since it is in german (currently working on an english version) anyways, I might just continue this is german.

    Ich will hier gar keine Zeit verschwenden und die Handlung großartig zusammenfassen, weil sowieso alles auf der Amazon-Page steht. Ich bitte euch nur, wenigstens den Link anzuklicken und sich kurz das Werk anzuschauen, in das ich über ein Jahr gesteckt habe. Das kein Flehen von wegen "bitte kauft es!!1!". Die jedoch, die sich entscheiden, es zu kaufen, bitte ich sehr herzlich darum entweder auf Amazon oder hier eine kurze Bewertung zurückzulassen, und mir ehrlich zu sagen, was ihr davon haltet. Ohne Mitleid, ich will eine ehrliche Kritik um meine Werke in der Zukunft zu verbessern. Also, die Links sind unten, und frohe Weihnachten!

    eBook

    Paperback

    Never mind the low-quality covers, I uploaded the wrong files by mistake and the new ones aren't showing up yet

    [QUOTE = "FS16, post: 759956, member: 97051"] Yeah, so I wrote a book about cars and stuff at the age of 14, and I'm pretty proud of it, so I figured to just make a quick post about it here. And since it is in english (currently working on an english version) anyways, I might just continue this is german.

    I do not want to waste any time here and sum up the plot great, because everything is on the Amazon page anyway. I'm just asking you to at least click on the link and take a quick look at the work I've been putting in for more than a year. That's no plea for "please buy it !! 1!". However, those who decide to buy it, I would like to either leave on Amazon or here a short review, and to tell me honestly, what you think about it. Without pity, I want an honest review to improve my works in the future. So, the links are down, and Merry Christmas!

    It looks cool, I would buy it if it was in English. From the google translated description, it doesn't sound cringy like every other fiction about cars seems to be.
    My quotes don't seem to work right now?

    Seems like a good book, sadly, I don't understand much German besides English looking words...

    Now I forgot to mention that I find most books terribly boring and don't read much because of my lack of attention span. I genuinely want to read your book and it sounds interesting. So its off to a great start.

    A German letter that I think you pronounce like 's', but I may be wrong.

    Anyway, I'd probably be interested in reading the book too once it's in English. Just out of curiosity, I've never read any books like this before. What sorta stuff is in one? (Aside from 'cars and stuff' obviously)

    The so called "sharp s", used to replace "ss" (fe. ich sass-> ich saß = I sat) if the vocal before it is pronounced longer (fe. ich aß (=I ate) is pronounced ich aas, while ich esse (=I am eating) is pronounced, well, esse). The ß is slowly fading away though with the new german spelling rules about years ago drastically reducing its appearance.

    This is what it looks like in English, I used Google Translate.

    I don't want to waste any time here and summarize the storyline, because everything is on the Amazon page anyway. I just ask you to at least click on the link and briefly look at the work in which I have been stuck for over a year. That no supplication of ways "Please buy it!! 1! ". However, those who decide to buy it, I kindly ask you to leave either on Amazon or here a short review, and tell me honestly what you think of it. Without pity, I want an honest critique to improve my works in the future. So, the links are down, and Merry Christmas!

    With the english version coming, I'll be looking for some native speaker to just look over it and point out any mistakes. If you have any interest, just hit me up at fvonscher@gmail.com - nothing definite though, I just want to see if anyone would do it and then decide if I really need it. Thanks!

    Right, if there is still any interest in this, my website is now online, and there thas been a big price cut. So if that massive 5€ price tag held you off, now might be the time to buy...
