Book Piracy Update

When my publishers copyright department checked out the site advertising free downloads of The Lady's Slipper, they discovered that the site is hosted in Moldavia and registered in Russia. It appears to be a malware site used to infect unsuspecting visitors machines rather than a genuine book download site i.e. there is no copyright infringement.
However, what that does mean is that anyone trying to download the book for free may end up with a nasty surprise! Ho ho ho.


  1. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    For the first time ever, as an IT professional, I love malware.

  2. As my Mum used to say when we were kids 'cheating comes to proving'!!!

  3. Thanks for stopping by, guess I won't be trying to download your books for free then after all!!
