I woke up yesterday morning to a Google alert about a company that claimed to be offering a PDF of my book, BITE INTO BLOODSUCKERS.
You know, the book that isn’t out yet? The book that no-one except my publisher, my co-author, the printer, and myself should have a PDF of?
There’s nothing like a little e-piracy to jump-start your week, you know? UGH.
So, I forwarded the email to my publisher, Fitzhenry & Whiteside, so that they can look into it and send whatever legal letters they need to send. If you ever find yourself in this situation, ALWAYS LET YOUR PUBLISHER KNOW. Also let your AGENT know, if you have an agent. They can tell you if you need to do anything and what that “anything” should be, and also, it’s just good for everyone involved to know about all the things going on with your book.
ANYWAY. My publisher is looking into it.
BUT GUESS WHAT ELSE MY PUBLISHER SAID?
They said that my author copies are on their way to me! And THEY SENT PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE!

My book is real! And it is book-shaped!
So, my week is pretty much made. How is your week going?
