Is your book selling on ebay or other sites without your consent? I couldn’t believe it when I checked and found ‘Crossing The Line’ on ebay! Here’s an interesting article from Jo Robinson to get you questioning the possibility of whether your book is out there being sold illegally! Thanks Jo for all this information! ~Elle

  1. This has me so perplexed. You could look at the bright side…someone thought it was worthy enough to steal. After being a victim of identity theft a year ago, nothing surprises me.

    When you self-publish you’re up for grabs I guess. I still say just write…life’s short so do whatever it is you love and try not to worry. Pollyanna
