    So an old friend of mine who was a career criminal has decided to turn his life around and become a writer. Believe it or not he is a pretty good writer. If you like true crime goodfellas Casino you will like his stuff. Not too gritty actually very well written for an amateur writer.

    Write now he is on a site that I think eventually publishes based on how many upboats (upvotes sorry too much time on reddit) he gets.

    Can someone toss me some ideas on how to get him more upvotes? The thing is people have to sign up and read the pages to vote. The publisher isn't dumb.

    This is a bit beyond what I normally do (getting backlinks by any means necessary) so any advice is appreciated.

    I imagine social bookmarking highly targeted of perhaps forum posts would help?

    If anyone wants to check out his stuff

    Not as much violence in his book so far. I get the feeling he will get to that in due time but might be having a hard time.. letting it out?

    anyone have any thoughts about how to get people to this site without getting him tossed off the site? Press release maybe? I started to think global forum post from an xrumer provider but..definite ban from his site right?
