Lacks reliable independent secondary sources to establish notability as required by WP:GNG. Googling turned up nothing useful. Amazon.com lists it as #331,339 in popularity, meaning that it's not at all popular, likely explaining why I could not find a single review of this book anywhere (not even non-RS reader comments.) Further, the article was written by Mikepjones and the book was written by Gordy Jones, suggesting a likely WP:COI. Finally, the article reads like an WP:Advertisement.

  • Delete I'm sure Gordy is a nice guy, but... I looked at the web page, and I think Beavers Pond Press is basically a vanity press. This is a self-published book - a well-promoted one, but I see no sign it has seen much interest. Non-notable.Brianyoumans (talk) 03:49, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment. I was going to suggest that this be redirected to Gordy Jones, but I'm kind of not seeing a lot on his page that says that he's notable. You might want to nominate him in this same AfD for deletion.Tokyogirl79 (talk) 05:00, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete. There's no sources to show that this self-published book is notable in the slightest. Being self-published doesn't automatically mean no notability, but it does mean that it's going to be more likely that it won't have sources.Tokyogirl79 (talk) 05:03, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
