Look at the cover of the book you almost didn't get
I have finished it, edited it,
and even added a short story at the end for lagniappe
with a section for Readers' Discussion and Enjoyment.
(I thought I might encourage readers who have a book club or new readers to form a new club with my suggestions.)
Two Reasons Why You Almost Never Got
to Read This Book:
to Read This Book:
1.) My Createspace formatter fell off the face of the earth.
I do not know of any others besides one in Thailand! And he does not do covers anymore.
Google seems to be coy about giving me straight answers about where I might find any formatters.
THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS looked like it wasn't going to be seen in paperback either.
I was afraid my formatter has encountered ill health, accident, or death. I emailed and Facebooked but no reply.
Google would not tell me anything either.
I needed the IMF or at least Rebecca Furguson!
She probably wouldn't be able to find my formatter either, but I would be in much better spirits!
I have since found out that my formatter was away on a work-vacation for a week where they did not have internet. Whew!
But Rebecca if you still want to visit, I am still willing!
2.) MY BOOKS HAVE BEEN PIRATED!
Googling for my formatter's name plus the subject obituary, I found nothing.
On a lark, I Googled my name. I got a few links to posts I have written, and then ...
I found a link to a page where you could download FOR FREE all versions of my print books with the images of their covers!!
Do you want to search free download Her Bones are in the Badlands By Roland D Yeomans or free read online? If yes you visit a website that really true. If you want to download this ebook, i provide downloads as a pdf, kindle, word, txt, ppt, rar and zip.
Obviously, English is not the native tongue of this author!
Now, a few months ago, every one of my Kindle books were bought and returned within an hour of purchase.
It took a month for my entire library on Amazon to be bought and so returned.
And after that, the sales of my Kindle books dried up to ZERO!
It didn't take a genius to deduce that my books had been pirated.
I contacted Amazon whereupon they obliviously replied that their return policy was a customer service.
I replied that this particular reader had serviced my books for his. No reply to that.
I decided to do only print and audio books from now on.
NOW, it looked like the versions of my print books had been pirated!
(All the cover images were from my print books!)
I would give you the link to the page but I have found some dangers to those pages:
The majority of these sites don’t actually have your book.
Some are designed to install viruses and malware when you click on the “download” button.
Others are an attempt to steal credit card information when you sign up to open an account.
Some are web crawler sites (also known as spider sites).
They’re designed to crawl around the web and looks for entries for a search engine index.
So not only are those pirates hurting me, but they are using my books to hurt my readers!
This pirating almost made me quit writing altogether.
But Sandra thumped me on the forehead with thumb and forefinger, saying it was free advertising.
What do you think about pirating?
