The Book that publishers won’t touch – “Finding Myself in China” – is now on sale

Please join us in combatting Google’s Intentional Monopolizing Interference in non-monetized (no ads) websites such as this, by sharing this post on your social media platforms.

R.P. Bendedek has been publishing individual stories about life’s events in China since 2004. In 2007 he began writing a book to explain why he fell in love with China and how he came to change his attitudes towards life and politics.

He began publishing chapters from that work at Magic City Morning Star in 2010.

Over the next five years he continued adding to that story and constantly revised the book.

At the beginning of 2016 BenDedek discovered that he could not get his book published because as a ‘non-fiction’ book, the American book publishing industry’s virtual “monopoly publisher” ¹ would not touch it lest they end up on the wrong end of a lawsuit.

In addition to the excerpts from Finding Myself in China, BenDedek has provided a page of footnote links from the book that readers may investigate prior to buying the book.

‘Finding Myself in China: A Politically Incorrect Story’ cannot be published as a hardcopy book.

In publishing from the KingsCalendar Website this book is sidestepping the Google e-book platform (which I believe would publish it at perhaps $5 and take 50% of sales for their trouble plus another 30% to satisfy American Tax Laws).

I have been informed that Google operates immorally, opportunistically and prejudicially against websites (including KingsCalendar) which refuse to be a party to the Google Advertising Empire. What they do apparently is ensure that only a small percentage of site articles become available in search engines. For instance, every time my monthly unique hits reaches a certain level, the site suffers an immediate 70% drop in monthly hits. It then takes time to build up again as new articles are added and listed in search engines, and then when hits reach the predetermined limit, it happens again and I immediately lose 70% of monthly hits.

And so I ask you dear readers – should you purchase this book and like it – to assist me to combat the monopolies who control the advertising world, by recommending this book on all of your social media sites.

Without your assistance, this book will never become known.

Thank you

¹ Today most books are published via self-publishing companies, but most of these are controlled by one American company which is in league with some famous traditional publishing companies. This monopoly’s behavior via the front companies is quite despicable and plays on the ignorance and stupidity of aspiring authors – BUT they do save traditional publishers a lot of time and money. They also allow book advertising on sites such as with those site profit margins being taken from author royalties.

If a book proves itself to be a winner, a traditional publisher will step in and offer a new contract to the author. This is permitted in the original self-publishing contract BUT that author’s book continues to be sold by the original publishing company brand name for one year – AND nowhere is it stated that the author gets any money from those sales. See How much in royalties do book authors get paid?
