About The Aristocracy

APIAS is the autonomous collective (heh) of 5 young professionals born of many years of pent up sports-rage, commentary, passion and despair for and to our favorite teams…

It’s a website.

    I thought you and your readers might be interested in my latest novel, How to Rig the NCAA Basketball Championship for Fun and Profit. This enovel will change the way you view college basketball.

    The book concerns a rogue ref who plans to rig the biggest game of them all. Think it can’t be done? Well, think again. Stanley Osborne, a big-time veteran referee, has the plan to do it. As revenge for all who had savaged his reffing abilities and honesty; the fans, the media, his conference, the NCAA. To escape a dead-end job and his shallow, abusive wife. And to make money. Lots and lots of money.

    If you would like to review the book for your readers, I’d be pleased to provide a complimentary copy, publish your review on my web site with a link to your site and provide space if you would like to make any additional comments.

    For more information, the complimentary review copy (a pdf file emailed to you) or an author interview, please e-mail me at james@jameswolfebooks.com or call 815-963-8383.

    Thanks in advance,

    James Wolfe

    I have a couple of questions about your blog:

    1) Is it OK with you if I spread some link love and link to your blog? I think my visitors would like your blog.

    2) I noticed on your blog that you link to other blogs… do you think its possible for you to link to my blog myairshoes.com?

    Please let me know what you think. Thanks for your time.
