Series: Stand Alone
Genre: Humorous Fiction
Publisher:  Christina Escamilla Publishing
Release Date: June 27 2014
Edition/Formats Available In: eBook & Print
Have you ever wondered why popular books keep giving us the same tired plot lines over and over again?
Peter sure does.
He has a theory that there are simply no more original ideas left in the world. To prove his hunch right, he makes a bet with his best friend, Andy. Together, along with the girl of his dreams and his best friend’s wife, they set out on a zany adventure that includes escaping the clutches of an illegal street racing crew, a terrorist attempt, one creepy morgue attendant, and a near death experience at the wheel of a well-known celebrity.
Will Peter find out why all of the words went away or will this unlikely foursome just prove he is a terrible writer?

“Bear with me.  So we have no ideas, well, no new ideas. But we’re not alone.  Look up some movie show times, what will you see?  Sequel, sequel, sequel, prequel, remake, remake, reboot.  Maybe there’s something new out, but it’s probably based off a book or popular series.  And those are based off some other idea that’s already been done before.  It’s just one crappy merry-go-round of the same couple of ideas over and over again.” At a pause of silence I continue, “Do you know what that means?”

“Yeah, that we have to come up with something that doesn’t suck.”

Alexis Sanchez Punya Gaya yang Mirip Dengan Ian Wright

Agen Bola Terpercaya indo11.com melaporkan, Permainan Alexis Sanchez dianggap begitu mirip dengan legenda Arsenal, Ian Wright. Demikian menurut pendapat yang dilontarkan oleh mantan pemain Manchester City, Trevor Sinclair.

Sinclair, yang membuat total 560 penampilan di Premier League selama 19 tahun karirnya, percaya ada banyak kesamaan di antara dua pemain tersebut.

"Alexis Sanchez terlihat amat fit, namun ia harus terus mengasah stamina, terutama untuk bermain di liga yang amat cepat seperti Premier League. Namun saya yakin ia akan cocok di dalam tim," tutur Sinclair.

"Ia mengingatkan saya pada Ian Wright. Tingginya juga hampir mirip, selain itu sikapnya juga tak jauh beda. Ia tidak akan membiarkan pemain bertahan manapun tenang saat menghadapinya," pungkasnya.

Sanchez belum lama ini membantu Arsenal jadi juara Community Shield dengan mengalahkan Manchester City.

Turkish Airlines Bisa Jadi Sponsor Chelsea Usai Samsung

Agen Bola Terpercaya indo11.com melaporkan, Turkish Airlines dipercaya tengah menjadi kandidat kuat untuk menggantikan Samsung sebagai sponsor utama Chelsea musim depan. Kontrak perusahaan asal Korea Selatan tersebut dilaporkan akan berakhir di akhir musim kompetisi ini.

Maskapai penerbangan ketiga di Eropa, Turkish Airlines, sebelumnya sudah mengikat kerja sama dengan beberapa klub top Eropa lainnya seperti Manchester United, Barcelona, dan juga Timnas Turki.

Kesepakatan dengan Turkish Airlines dikabarkan akan memberi Chelsea dana segar senilai 18 juta poundsterling per tahun. Namun Samsung diyakini akan menunggu kiprah The Blues di Liga Champions sebelum menindaklanjuti kerja sama mereka dengan tim asuhan Jose Mourinho tersebut.
