The Diet Cola Scenario

Hi fellow traders

One of the reasons I have been off-line somewhat lately is that I have finished my first novel - "The Diet Cola Scenario". It's now available on Amazon:
Amazon.com: The Diet Cola Scenario (9781453669389): Ross Cossins: Books

Ross Cossins is my nom-de-plume.

The novel is a biotechnology thriller about the unforeseen consequences of developing a biological agent used to eliminate cocaine, and involves the first female Prime Minister (yes really - it's a coincidence that we now actually have one - I wrote most of the book 5-10 years ago), the US President and his relationship with the PM, Australian scientists, investigative journalists, and leaders of a powerful Mexican cocaine cartel.

I don't expect any of you buy traders to buy my novel, but if you are tempted you may also post a Customer Review on Amazon.

Cheers,
Nano

That's awesome, nano. Quite an accomplishment, I'm sure you are very proud!

I've considered writing some trading books. I would be interested in learning more about the "behind the scenes" or "the making of" the book, if you wish to share some tidbits.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

Ross Cossins is my nom-de-plume.

So if Ross Cossins is your nom-de-plume does that mean Nano Biotech is your real name

Well, several of my friends read it over the past year as proof readers and all said they really enjoyed it. Comments like "it's a high-tech novel but the plot is scary because it is so plausible" were common.

So I do recommend it on that basis, but only others can really judge it.

Cheers,
Nano

Sure, I can put a short story together how I did it as it is relatively easy to get a book published these days and not expensive other than the time it takes to write, edit and proof it.

Actually I do disclose my real name in the book in my short bio.
