Is it just me, or is there a lag in sales reporting today? No new sales or borrows posted since last night on my book, which is highly unusual.

I "outed" the guy stealing and "lending" Kindle E-books,

for 50 or 25% on the dollar.

What's the story, there, Mike4128? Was this a pirate with a website? Or was he doing it on Amazon?

I've demanded a couple of websites claiming to have my book take it down, although from what I hear, some of them don't really have the books--they are just luring unsuspecting deal-seekers into downloading viruses, that they then have to pay to remove. And I don't know if the reporting had done any good.

I was selling right-at/very-close-to 10/day this month--was at 196 last night, on the 20th, but nothing at all today, except a couple copies in the U.K. Must be the heat.

Cold in Bay Area today. Wife was going to take ferry to San Francisco and Sausalito but it was too damn cold. Maybe 55 degrees or so with a wind chill factor from the fog.

My son in law is from Arkansas. I found a home here in Goldilocks territory. (Not too hot, not too cold)

I don't know where you live in Arkansas, but my experience here in NWA was a morning of rain followed by a pleasantly cooler and less humid afternoon. It's been lovely.

Always nicer up there in NWA. I'm in Arkadelphia, down in SW corner, which often seems to have the highest temp in the state.
