Well, not robbed but stolen from. I was doing a search and found one of my copyrighted stories that I sell on Amazon on a site. Now normally I could write to the site and show them the work is copyrighted and needs to be taken down but for one, it’s a foreign site and the other reason I didn’t write them is that I cannot find the contact information. It’s similar to Pinterest but yeah, foreign. My entire story is uploaded into a pdf for anyone to read and what is ir0nic (or whatever since I always say it’s ironic and it’s not – kind of like the Alanis Morissette song) is that my copyright is still on the page.
They stole the whole thing including the wording about copyright. <sigh> I won’t say where or how I found it so no one else reads it for free but there it was/is. 😦
I once had an entire blog post stolen from me. It was a post I made that happened to start trending and showed up on Google as one of the top searches. I wrote to them (they were a foreign site too) and they changed it to reflect that it was my post and linked to me. I can’t seem to do that with this site and not sure what to do. It’s late so I’ll think on it more once I have a clear, unfatigued head. ‘
Maybe I should steal their soul like I stole this meme.
I have Peaceable Kingdom for free starting the 26th and running for three days. Since this story is rather extreme or some might find it offensive, it’ll be interesting if I get any negative reviews or comments. However, I think that the sample should give an idea of what it’s like. It’s just one paragraph but that paragraph has that one word that some hate so we’ll see how it goes. If you haven’t read it, now is your chance. 🙂 Just head over to Amazon tomorrow and pick it up at no charge. Just click here Peaceable Kingdom
I thought I’d try out the KDP Select promo where you offer an e-book or story free for a few days. I put Make a Wish up today and it’s already showing this:
- Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,026 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)
#9 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Short Stories
I told my husband I was #9 and he said that’s great. I said, I’m even above Rikki Tikki Tavi and he said, I can’t have that, I love that book. LOL I agree, it was one of my favorites growing up. Anyway, let’s hope this gets me some new readers that buy my other short stories too. 🙂
