I%u2019m interested in getting PR support to generate media coverage for a recently published book and its associated web-site.

I have written and self-published, Secret Habits of Successful Bastards, a self-help style book that explores how being a self-serving, tough, ruthless and unpredictable bastard brings wealth and personal success and that, rather than being hated for exhibiting such behaviour, the person is usually held in high regard and has a great life.

Secret Habits of Successful Bastards is largely tongue-in-cheek, but combines serious perspectives and messages with humorous anecdotal examples of famous real-life bastards to create a viewpoint that challenges readers%u2019 thinking. They will often be amused, sometimes shocked and occasionally confused; but always enlightened at how tough the real world is and what must be done to win in the battle for personal success.

I have built a web-site supporting the book,, where people can measure how much of a bastard someone and play an interactive game called %u2018Bastards%u2019 Bingo.%u2019

I am looking for media coverage in the UK, in newspapers and magazines and on the radio and TV. My book is widely stocked, internationally, in on-line bookstores and by the major UK book wholesalers.

I%u2019d like to see what action is generated without it costing me an arm and a leg. Investment will depend upon how much coverage can be created and he impact on sales. I would be willing to enter into a risk/reward relationship with a scale of fees linked to sales or similar.

Best regards,

Adrian Maile

I am in Bangalore at the moment, the UK on Saturday and Cyprus on Sunday for a fortnight, so send me an e-mail because Indian phone systems are dire and mobiles don%u2019t work on aeroplanes ;-).

I have a web-site that nicely explains the book and what it is all about. It is searchable on Google books and
