BTW... there are a LOT of readers who've commented about being frustrated regarding the #kindleunlimited #scamming issues that have come more into public focus thanks to #CopyPasteCris. It's an ongoing issue...much of my info came from Twitter user Nikki. She has screenshots. Isabella Fawn/Marci Fawn on Dirty Discourse posting about selling her backlist and opening stating it had been previously published.
Many go back for months. #KindleUnlimited #scammers @amazon @AmazonKDP Readers even noticed this problem themselves as far back as 2017, if you look at the #hottakes on my blog. They didn't realize it was a buy/sell thing, maybe, but they saw the copying. shilohwalker.com/website/catego…
Some of the 'defenders' of this shitty practice, like my good friend, Bob, claim this is purely honest and ethical.

FYI, if you haven't Bob...this is Bob.

This comment was at KU. Bob has also defend his crappy crap at La Nora's blog & over @SuzanTisdale's blog. Bob Frost defending crap takes on misleading readers when books are repackaged and resold as new with no disclosure.

A heads up to fellow #writers out there, regardless of genre.

You might have heard about #CopyPasteCris. Something that's come to light, or rather been finally spotlighted after some readers & others raised hell that we all need to be aware of AND ACT ON. shilohwalker.com/website/2019/0…
Scammers are buying proliferating on the #KindleUnlimited platform which hurts all authors whether they use @AmazonKDP or not, whether you're traditionally published, with a small press or go the indie route.
These people are literally SELLING & RESELLING manuscripts & copyright only to repackage, recover & release as a brand new book under another author's name (with a shiny, new fake copyright, too). This is deceptive as hell. @AmazonKDP @Amazonhelp has been notified to no avail.

Alright, people...let's play a game.

I'm going to do another #HotTake on the blog in a bit but I'm going to let you see how I collect the info for this. Now bear with me, because some of this requires info gathering which can be slow.

I've laid out a lot of this
beforehand, but once I get down to the nitty gritty, it takes more time.

First... have you checked out the #WTF on Nora Roberts' blog?

It stems from a comment made by one Mr. Frost.
#hottake
Frost, you see, views books as 'assets'. That's it. Commodities to be bought and sold, and readers aren't really even considered.

Those aren't my words. See? MY words are in red. Frost is quite active on the forums at Kboards.

I'm working on three hours of sleep, so probably a good time fire off my election #hottakes 🔥🔥🔥🔥

#Hottake 1: D house performance in 2018 was comparable to GOP performance in 2010 for 2 reasons: overall pop vote margin was about the same and CRUCIALLY, D's had a much bigger majority in 2010 (257 seats!), so were overexposed. A GOP majority of 257 seats woulda lost 60 seats
#Hottake 2: The Democratic party's coalition is bigger than the GOP, BUT the GOP's hardcore, reliable voting base is bigger, and much more spread out across the country. Dems have to turnout lots of different kinds of voters, GOP doesn't really. Which leads to...

A sizzling series of #HOTTAKES: the expected House and Senate party breakdowns are not that surprising and well within the range of the forecasts. It may be a good/bad night for certain candidates, but overall things look pretty much as expected. 1/x
And while the game-changer narratives are already percolating ("Trump caravan comments worked!"), the simple truth is that people's vote intentions haven't changed that much for months 2/x: washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-ca…
Yes, immigration attitudes matter more now than in recent elections (
nytimes.com/2018/11/05/opi…), but that was already true before the caravan. The caravan itself didn't change much per @pete_enns (washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-ca…) 3/x
