George Eccles lived in Russia and Central Asia for ten years during the tumultuous period that followed the breakup of the Soviet Union. As a Moscow-based partner in one of the major financial services firms, his work brought him into regular contact with the murky world of real life oligarchs as they struggled to get to grips with the fallout of Yeltsin's controversial 'loans for shares' scheme. He now lives in the South of France.
Author of The Oligarch: A Thriller - synopsis below:
The action of the book starts just after the controversial election for a third term of a Russian President amid widespread protests and allegations of vote rigging, and is set in Moscow, Ingushetia (Chechnya’s neighbour), and Tyndersk, an Siberian mining town inside the Arctic Circle and geographically cut off from the rest of Russia. The Russian President is determined to destroy the oligarchs before they destroy him. When the global economic meltdown decimates their wealth, the President seizes this chance to demolish their power base. His greatest opponent - Anton Blok, owner of the mighty Tyndersk Kombinat – has a secret agenda and faces far more than just financial ruin as his empire threatens to fall apart, and the President knows that his old enemy will stop at nothing to avoid catastrophe. With battlelines drawn, he turns to Alex Leksin, an ex MI6 investigator of Russian descent, to thwart Blok's plans. Against the challenge of hostile Arctic conditions, Leksin must tread a dangerous path through a labyrinth of corruption, terrorism and obfuscation until the exciting and unexpected denouement takes place in Russia’s northernmost seaport.
'The Oligarch: A Thriller' is available in English from Amazon (UK, US, France), Apple iTunes (UK, US, France), Barnes & Noble and Kobo. It is currently in the process of being added to the Amazon Canada site.
Hi, I came across your blog, and I thought you would be the perfect person to contact.
My name is Jay Siva, the founder of EZBuyButton.com, an easy 'buy book' widget for authors. I'm contacting you today because I think you and your readers would love to know about the EZBuyButton widget I've created.
It is the most advanced 'buy now' widget for selling books. I make it free for authors and publishers, worldwide, to quickly and easily create and use our EZBuyButton widget to place on their website or blog to immediately increase the sales of their books, especially if their books are listed for sale in more than one retail store. I made it super easy, with just a few clicks they just copy & paste a piece of code onto their website/blog, and they're done.
The widget allows website visitors to select which device they'd like to use to read the author's book, and then select their preferred retail store that they'd like to purchase the book from. It also geolocates the visitor's location and will send the visitor to the correct country specific retail store so that they can buy the author's book. The widget is also fully customizable, and the author will have access to detailed real-time statistics of the use of their widget.
I would like to invite you to visit my website, and try out the EZBuyButton widget. I hope you find that my widget will be useful to you and your readers, including all the authors, literary agents, and publishers you're in contact with.

Hi George and welcome to book blogs. I am a fairly new member as well, but have found the community to be very warm and welcoming. Everyone seems willing to help each other.
I started a new group called Philanthropy 101 - It is a group for bloggers, authors, readers, and reviewers who contribute to charity or who are giving back in some way to make our communities better. If you are making a difference or have ideas that can help others make a difference, please stop by and share. Since the group is just getting started, we could use all the help we can get. http://bookblogs.ning.com/group/philanthropy-101
I just released my debut novel, Atomic Summer - THREE friends, TWO secrets, ONE lie, and the summer that changed their lives. While the book doesn’t deal with cancer issues, I am donating 100% of my royalties to cancer causes. I didn’t write the book to make money, I wrote it to ‘be read’. So I am giving back to make a difference.
I am so glad you have come to join us! It can be a bit overwhelming around here at first, Don't hesitate to ask questions- At least until you get your bearings! I am more then happy to help!
