KDP Piracy Victims May Be Eligible for Compensation – by John Doppler…

Piracy hurts us all….

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

on Self Publishing Advice:

In my discussions with authors who have deal with piracy of their books, a recurring theme is the loss of royalties. Authors rarely see the lost royalties stolen by pirates, counterfeiters, and other copyright violators, and most assume the money is securely in the pockets of the thieves.

But there’s an interesting clause tucked away in the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Terms and Conditions that can turn the tables on that platform’s pirates:

Rainbow Snippets May 4th

Tis a dreary day here in the midwest, but not hot or cold…just right to be indoors and pressing the lapels on my re-do of Bernard. 🙂 Plus loads of other household chores that get forgotten now that hubby is back to work and my job takes 80% of my day. If writing is not your full-time gig, what do you do? I work in accounting.

What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.

This week I’m posting from an up-n-coming re-release. Bernard, Diary of a 46-yr-old Bellhop has been transformed into Bernard’s Diary. I’ve set a release date of June 15th and will tease up to that date.


Bernard Covington, suicidal and not the most-handsome man in the world would be happy to leave the world behind altogether.  That is until he meets Dr. Jack Larson. The physician takes his wounded heart and soul and patches them back together, but is he Mr. Perfect?

Bernard and Jack develop a romance, but soon the tide begins to shift as Jack’s past is revealed and it becomes a game-changer for the couple to deal with.

Will Bernard and Jack have a happy ending or will he succumb to his desire to end it all or will dealing with Jack’s phantoms keep him going? Only Bernard’s diary knows what secrets lurk in his soul…

He flipped to an open page and plucked off the pen that was attached to the outside and clicked the point down.

I can’t hold this in much longer. Jeremy makes me want to explode every time I get near that incredible body of his! He’s such a good customer, tips well, and never has much luggage. I love bringing up room service to him…I wish it were me that was staying behind in the room with him. I have to tell him how I feel; he must suspect something by now. I’d give anything to have a real man in my life for once, just once! Something’s gotta change in a big way or…shit. I’ve just, I’ve got to do this before I fall apart and die a 46-yr-old virgin. Wishing myself luck!

Bernard hopes that his luck with men will change in a big way. Stay tuned to see how that turns out.
