Takedown request

We've just had to file another takedown request with Nakido to try to get 'Dear Mr. President' (sic), 'Aloes', and 'Fool's Errand' removed from their site. Since this is the second time we've had to do this for Adam's book - and one of the most aggravating aspects is the way they've mangled its name - we are not unduly hopeful, but we'll do our best.

We double-checked our other authors and titles, but only these three seem to be involved. Clearly, however, we will have to keep an eye on Nakido in the future.

We had intended to post a plaintive lament about the lack of reviews today, but the foregoing has taken the wind out of our sales*** a bit. Not only that, but when we realise how overcrowded the eBook romance market is - whether gay or straight - we're astonished that anything ever gets reviewed at all. We were very lucky early in our publishing career, we got a lot of attention from reviewers. Now this has fallen off steeply, but we're assured that it's the same for everyone. It's disappointing, of course, and we wish there was a solution.

However it makes us grateful for the reviews we do get, and even more so for the faithful customers who return time and time again to buy our books. We thought it was probably about time we mentioned that again!

*** sails! That's just embarrassing!
