How Many Crooks Steal My Books????

Now here´s a funny story, no, no it isn´t!  I write stories because I enjoy it, I certainly don´t make lots of money at it, it´s probably cost me more than I have earned.  Unfortunately there isn´t some great organisation to give me support, or hundreds of people behind my name. No, from start to finish it´s all my own work so WHY are my books being poached?

There are web pages right across the internet which offer my books on a free download, this isn´t just one site it´s vast numbers of them. If you contact search engines or the sites, you basically get two fingers.  I have contacted Amazons Legal Department who are “strong on copyright” but they will not do anything about it, even though one of the sites is Amazon.ES.

I am not rich I cannot hire armies of lawyers to close down these people and it is impossible to find these criminals.  What I do not understand is this what do they get out of it? after all they are not selling my books just stopping me from selling them.  As for law enforcement departments around the world, please don´t laugh, they do absolutely nothing to protect the copyright.  Theft is theft, the  piracy of cd´s, perfume, fashion accessories is pursued with energy, but write and publish  a story and any one can steal it.

So what do I do?  In the good old days it would be down a dark alley with a sawn off shotgun, not that this has ever happened, but how do you stop a nerd??

Perhaps these free downloads contain trojans or worms that eat away at your personal information, stealing bank details so be careful about getting a free book.

If anyone out there knows how to solve this problem please let me know on

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
