Hi Steve. I can vouch for The Whaler - it's a great story. Good luck and nice to see you back again.

Gotcha! I've only just started using Twitter (I'm a granny!) but I like to tell people about good books.

I find your news about Twitter abuse by Mr Leather astounding. Steve, you really should keep abreast of legal developments about Internet abuse. Although an allegedly grey area, there is increasing recognition, legally, that the rights of the potentially abused are protected. This now includes a number of forms of harassment. Don't be fooled into believing that you are being given any personal favour by an individual on the basis of moral decency. Check the legal position and ask yourself what the reason could be for any apparent turnaround.

Steve, it really is a sad fact of life that some decent people are there to be eaten. The predatory shark is ever present...

Well I was working on the basis of Steve being happy with the outcome, but... Yes I agree with you Bookie.

Aside from that I found it really creepy! Also amusing I suppose that the man who constantly spouts that anyone who dares disagree with his views is a troll, or is somebody else, has created a dummy account specifically to create false twitter reviews of his own books!!

Bookie says:
I agree Diane, but nothing happens without a reason.

There have been three recent legal cases which have clarified grey areas about harassment and Internet bullying. Those cases have confirmed that it is not ok to be offensive and defamatory ie libellous on a public forum.

If I go off and set up a twitter account as someone else, is that ok? Of course not. It is a deception. As we well know, some people are truly desperate and may be more deserving of sympathy...
False reviews of his own books? How sad and desperate is that? Watching
With interest .

I wasn't suggesting you should pursue any legal route Steve. I was making a more general observation about the possibility of less than altruistic motivation. It is neither here nor there and the main thing is that you can continue with your writing with good heart. I truly hope you have the success you wish for. Good luck.

SL has been on and off the forum lately, so can leave that issue and his reasons to him. Yes, agree though Bookie - this should be back to Steve.

I grabbed The Whaler a while ago and thought it was really good. Highly recommended

The Whaler

Edit - oh, and Steve - did you look into getting yours onto paperback? There are lots of print on demand services now and could give a whole new audience?
