Today the goodly gents discuss trilogy and serial promotion and marketing, reviews for trilogies, and what defines a “trilogy.”
Also, the boys discuss Kevin’s recent experience with theft and plagiarism – he had his book stolen and reposted under a different Amazon account. Kevin tells the horror story and what he did to resolve it. He also shared an article that claims Amazon will actually recompense the original author for this stuff. Nick throws in this gem (affiliate link): Ice Station Wolfenstein, a clear and blatant ripoff by a guy named “Preston W. Child” (I know, right?!) of a lot of well-known authors and books in that genre.
They also tackle an important technical ebook issue – how to make graphs, charts, illustrations, and images appear nicely in an ebook format.

Plagiarism has been a fashion nowadays. It’s seriously a damage to our creativities when you see someone has just copied your ideas and content and are being praised and even extracting money from ebook store like Amazon. It’s really good thing that Amazon has taken a step to compensate the author for this. I have faced some similar issues when I published my article on fibre2fashion.
