Today I was made aware that this novel is available for purchase on Amazon, under a different title, sold someone other than myself.

That's right folks; someone has copied my novel, changed a few of the character names and the title, and is selling it on Amazon. I in no way authorized this. I am not the one selling it. Someone else has stolen it, and is profiting from my work.

I am in the process of doing everything I can to fix this problem.

Of Proud Spirits and Losses at Night is my novel. The copy available on FictionPress is the third draft. I was in the process of editing and re-writing, so naturally, this is incredibly devastating to me.

This novel will remain on FictionPress until I have finished dealing with this issue. After that point, it will be permanently removed.

For everyone who has read and replied, thank you. It means the world to me. I hate that I'm going to have to leave FictionPress on such a sour note.

To everyone who has stories posted here, be careful. I didn't think this would happen to me. And it did. Don't assume it can't happen to you. It can. There are lots of people out there willing to steal to make a quick buck.

I wish all those of you who stay here the best of luck. I hope none of you know what it's like to get an email like the one I got today.
