Sorry if that is not good enough for you.
All I can I say is that it's the handful like you that makes me want to pull up stakes at times. That is what Hal did......He did not want people like you to have CTE.
But I am not pulling up.
I plan on doing free clinics for the remainder of my heathy life.
I am going to publish endless CTE free videos if I have the support for them not just personal texts or emails but only if the desire for more is shown right here on this forum.
That's the cost......vocal support on this forum will drive what the quantity of my videos submissions.
The support can start anytime as I'm beginning to grow weary that there may be little support. If it's wanted I want to hear the noise!

You need not worry about whether I am being ripped off or not. My first estimate or projection over 2 years ago was $28 G for a multi thousand book deal. The 40G is a projected increase only.

I question your knowledge about book publishing as you did not ask whether my book is B/W or color or the number of copies in that figure as that's all relevant. I am working with a professional company and not just some copier company.

What's a company name that you recommend?

A good publisher will pay you for the right to sell your book. Not the other way around.

I make no assumptions about certain types of publishers. But judging by the $40K price, and size of your book, I'd guess it's going to be a hard cover with full-color interior, and you'll have to buy X amount of copies up front. Nowadays there are some very good and reputable POD outfits (print on demand). Lulu offers a wide range of formating options and worldwide distribution. As the author you retain full creative and publication rights. No contract. No lock to buy X amount of books. More and more authors are choosing this route because it's smart. If the book takes off and becomes a best seller, a traditional publisher will gladly pick it up and make an offer package, plus an advance for any future works in progress if any, and all at ZERO cost to the author. When it's good, everybody wins. When it's unknown, or risky, only the smart/slick publisher wins.

I want to see more. Your youtube videos are very good.
I will buy your book and I think you're really on to something with your CTE.
Just ignore the troublemakers...they're in every poolroom.
The moderator said to report them and that's what I do, every time there's hostility.

Cte pro one! - Today, 02:30 AM

Since I joined AZb, maybe even before, I searched after all aiming systems there is, wanted to learn them all and then choose the right one for me, and I finally managed to do just that.

There were a lot of great people here that helped me tremendously with that, like Ekkes (SEE system/SAMBA), SpiderWebComm (Dave), Stan, mohrt, Bob Nunley, Scott Rohleder, Neil, Garry Williams, psouvaridis etc., I'm sorry if I forgot about someone, I owe you all so much that it is hard to explain in words.

My choice came down to CTE PRO ONE, and it was definately not because it worked instantly, many of the ppl mentioned can vouche for that, I certainly bored them with my constant questions and pleads for help and I certainly put a lot of time, sweat and effort in every system to be sure that my final conclusion is the right one because I'm a perfecionist.

When I finally decided on CTE PRO ONE it was slow and hard at the beginning but then suddenly stuff started to hit me one by one, first the visuals, then the manual pivoting, then my visual center, and then finally the sweeps and their corresponding CB centers, then it really started to get easy, fun and very emotional for me, because I worked at it for a long time.

Finally now I can say that there was nothing wrong with the instruction Stan or anyone else gave to me with regard to CTE or any other aiming system, it was all me, but I live in Bosnia (Europe) and there is no instructors in my country that could've helped me, so that is why it took so long, but if I listened closely to everything it could have been quicker.

I'll just give one example that was my last hurdle that I overcame to achieve proficiency in CTE, Stan clearly explains in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDOnLiDh-dg) that you can pick the visuals and sweep with whatever point between your eyes you want BUT then you have to sweep with that point AND get your CUE UNDER that point, but that one should use his visual center (that is strongest).
I knew that I had to pick up the lines with my visual center which is the left corner of my right eye, I watched this video and forgot about it because I THOUGHT I was already doing that, BUT I WAS NOT! I did pick the lines up with that point on my face and thought that I came down in full stance with that visual center in mind BUT I WAS NOT!

When I started to go down to CCB while keeping that point of my eye focused on the task and get my cue under that point - everything came together, now I can do it whatever possible way I want to, manual pivot, sweep or as I now do it - just see the visuals and get down directly on the shotline, I'm playing the best pool of my life and really enjoying it.

Was it Stans fault that he had a support video for this which I looked and overlooked - definately NO, it was MY FAULT!

I finally can say that I don't need any help anymore and don't have any questions that need to be answered, but for the life of me CAN'T WAIT FOR THE VIDEOS AND BOOK TO SEE HOW CAN THIS POSSIBLY GET ANY EASIER AND BETTER!?!

Again, thank you all very much, you have my support for the remainder of my life, and not just you but everyone I mentioned that helped me on my way, I got something out of everyone and their unselfish help!

Here's how it's going to work Lou. When you and Dan White send in your orders for Stan's book with either a credit card payment or whatever else is chosen, it's going to be red flagged and I will pay Stan the $70 not to send it to the both of you. I'll even go double the money to him so he doesn't lose revenue.

There will probably be a few others that I'll add to the list because we ALL know how you'll take one or two words out of each chapter to spin, twist, and obfuscate the meaning just as you have for the last 20 years and take it into the next 20 years.

I want to assure everyone that I not dealing with a smart/slick publisher. I have done homework. I know exactly how pool fits into the mindset of publishing companies. I am under no illusion that a company can only be classified as good If they are willing to find my project. CTE is in a niche type category and I know and I think most of you understand that as well. I have a great publishing company that is run by an extremely super group of people. There may be nasty publishing companies out there but the company that I am working with is not one of them.

My daughter just received a book contract and her book will go to Barnes and Noble as well as to Target. She gets 10% per book and that is about the average royalty . I can't stand that kind of action with CTE but I am thrilled for my daughter and her deal.

Lastly, I want a real book that I can be proud of for entering into the LOC. I want this work to be around for hundreds of years!

I will be just fine with my decisions.

One last tidbit......$40G with color for my book, forget it, as color would likely double or even triple the cost and that's at a minimum.

And keep reporting them because they're doing it constantly with baiting tactics and then reporting it to the mods themselves. Maybe one time your report will stick.

But they are very wily creatures who do everything possible to post within the rules with no name calling and some other tricks of their trade.

What I can't understand is how this negative crew, tribe, gang or whatever else they might be referred to can come on here day in and day out with numerous posts attacking either the CTE process, Stan, or users in the way it's done.

Can you imagine a Smith & Wesson forum, Ruger, Sig Sauer having negative members coming in daily over a 20 year period to do nothing but pick apart any one of those guns over and over again when they don't own one or have any intention of using them?

It wouldn't last 2 DAYS before the other members blistered them and the moderators banned their a*ses for life.

Isn't it somewhat mind boggling how the negative harassment on one subject can be allowed for the number of years that is has from the same individuals with no reprisal at all?

But watch, I'll probably get warned or banned for making this post myself. I'm not coated with "Teflon".

Like I said, I make no assumptions about publishers. But typically a publisher pays the author for the right to sell his or her book. They do all the leg work as far as promoting and selling the book. The author isn't required to purchase 2000 copies or 3000 or whatever. The pool instructional genre is probably an exception, as it's not the hottest market.

Most traditional publishers offer 7-10% royalties, so 10 would be great. Self-publishing provides 50 to 80 %. And the POD industry is booming. Self-published books are no different than traditional published books, with one exception: The middle man is cut out of the equation, allowing the author to retain full rights and better compensation for their work.
