Beware A Book Scam

It was brought to my attention that there is a bookseller selling copies of my Thomas Hill book on and other Amazon sites. The seller claims that they are new copies. I would just like to make it clear that I have never heard of this bookseller before and I have no record of supplying them with any copies of the book. This has been explained to Amazon who is now investigating if the seller is falsely describing second hand copies as new or is selling a pirate edition of the book.
Part of the scam is the greatly inflated price of the book. The seller is charging $51.97 when the retail price is actually $16.50.
The seller has a website where it is claimed that they sell unusual titles on behalf of publishers; so I’ll just repeat, as a publisher, I’ve never heard of this bookseller before.
Until it is discovered who is behind the anonymous website, the books that were to be published this month and in March will now be delayed. It’s along shot that the book is being pirated but until it is confirmed it is not I don’t want to risk two more potentially being treated the same.

Website Working Again

The webhost techno boffins sorted out the problems with my webiste. I wasn't even able to access the website emails for a while.
Hopefully, everything should be working normally. Those who have sent messages using the contact form on the contact page or direclty to the website email address will now start to receive replies. I'd like to thank Beatrice Thomas for dealing with most of the website matters; she will be doing so from now on in order to allow me to get on with other things.

Web Host Problems

Just to let people know that my web host is having technical problems (whatever that means) regarding some of the websites it hosts, including mine. For that reason, while they sort out whatever the problem is, my web site will be unavailable at times. I don't know how long they will take. Hopefully not too long.
