I realise I may have
had a few digs at made some comments to you in the past about the (very) occasional odd book cover, crappy unusual website construction and over the price ds of books, and then of course there was the whole ménage thing.
Please, please believe me when I say, my Dearest Supplier of Books of all kinds of Genres for all kinds of Folk, I was swept away in the heat of the moment and succumbed to the
Wwave of pressure from my peers.
My humblest apologies for any discomfort caused to you by the antagonism of the many readers who have not the wit to believe in the ultimate fantasy of m/m/f. I’m sure all will soon be forgotten when your new releases become more evenly representative of the different genres.
However, this is not the reason why I write.
No, my darling fiction-issuing Gods/desses, today I have grim tidings.
It is with deep regret I advise I was unable to purchase your latest releases because they were not available through my favoured online bookstore.
Further to this, rumours abound in romance bloglandia that some recent books have been deliberately delayed being sent to online shops and that some have ONLY been sent to one bookstore and not another.
I know, my glorious producer of ebook goodness, I can well imagine the disappointment and deep sorrow you must feel in the face of these types of accusations and assumptions. I myself was absolutely incensed on your behalf.
It should go without saying that in these troubled economic times magnanimous publishing companies such as yourselves are doing everything in your power to ensure your readers continue to buy your books by allowing them to maximise their dollar (sometimes foreign and therefore subject to those dreadful exchange rates) and grant them variety by making releases available through general bookstores.
Indeed, I am Shocked more readers would not realise your marketing experts are sure to tell you that such actions will give you a loyal customer base.
I am also Appalled my fellow readers would not consider the benefits this additional promotion will bring to you and your authors. Alas, not all can be as worldly as you and I.
Unpleasant though it is, I am confident you will take immediate steps to remedy this unfortunate situation.
As always, I wish you many sales, Dear Publisher, and look forward to purchasing the latest releases that appeal to me through the bookstore of my choice.
Yours sincerely, and with the utmost respect,
