This review is from: Levverzat Wat (Kindle Edition)A stupid book something a child of 10 might write. It's a one sided view (rant) Of a pathetic augment.
Thank goodness this isn't the norm of indie authors publishing books on kindle. Steve Roach is doing indie authors no favours writing a story like this which seems to the object of the story It's a misery book a poor old me book depressing and childish.
Have brought previous books from this author which I enjoyed won't be getting any more

I'm sorry you feel that way, Karen.
It is indeed a stupid book, but a necessary one. This 'pathetic' argument is actually an attempt by one of the UK's top authors to wreck my own writing career. I'm sorry that you feel it's inappropriate for me to stick up for myself.
If you take the time to actually read the book, you'll see that it's actually an accurate reflection of events, and one in which I freely admit my own shortcomings. On a wider note, it is a study of an issue that is relevant to all indie authors, not just myself. A good portion of the book looks at the issue via the bigger picture. If you read and understand the book, you will actually see that I am trying to do ALL indie writers a favour.
Again, I'm sorry if this book has upset you, but there are legitimate reasons for its existence.
If you do not want to buy any further work by an author you've previously enjoyed, I can't affect that decision. I do quite clearly state that this book should not be considered a part of my canon. It was a last ditch attempt to get SL off my back, and if he agrees to leave me alone, the book will immediately be withdrawn from further distribution.
EDITED for clarity.
