I am getting closer and closer to actually being able to publish Curveball Year Three. Almost. Almost. Almost.


"Original Pre-made covers" they said.

What they _didn't_ say was that the "premade" part was on Shutterstock and you can find the damn image all over the internet, including on another Kindle book obviously being sold.

So... well, I feel dumb. But at least I figured it out before I published with the cover.

Now to find a Plan B

Oh it's even better.

It's already being used as a cover on another author's series.

Honestly, I should have used more due diligence than I did. I mean, shame on me for that. When you swim in the shark-infested waters of self-publishing you should always assume you are the chum.


@ubersoft Good thing you caught that before you went to press! o.o

Yes, all in all it's a lot less messy finding out now instead of later. :-/
