I just saw a Press Release touting a new book on timeshare authored by someone who claims to be an industry expert.
Having authored or co-authored three books myself, I was curious to see what this book was all about and who the author was.
My first clue that something was not quite right came when I saw books about everything BUT timeshare on the site including a book on dating! Then, when I finally found the book on timeshare, I was instructe to "click on (name of author)" to find out more. Weird, but OK.
I had to first go through a lengthy preamble by someone who also claims to be an industry expert. Expert except for the fact timeshare was in quotes as if it were a strange word of some sort.
Obviously, this guy has some good PR...he got himself mentioned in an industry trade magazine that I have yet to crack...but a timeshare expert? I don't think so.
