I have found The Rise of Heretics posted on a couple of websites without my permission. Worst off, they are advertising them as ‘free’, taking away what little profits I earn. But these freebie sites are not what they seem. They’re actually phishing sites looking for your personal information. They’re even targeting the authors with a page of what to send if there’s an ‘infringement’, asking for information that would allow them to steal intellectual property.
As of this moment The Rise of Heretics (not the revision) is available on Amazon ONLY. If you see it anywhere else, then it’s a SCAM.
Also, if you have an e-book for sale on Amazon or any other legitimate store, your book is likely listed on these phishing sites. DON’T PANIC. Just inform everyone you know that it’s a scam. There’s no proof they actually have the story unless you click on the download links, and by then it would be too late to realize that they’re trying to plant malware on your machine.
And while I’m on here, might as well do a status report. Book 1 of the new Heretics revision is a chapter away from completion. After that I need to wake up my betas and get the correcting done. Thanks for your patience!
