Me VS Amazon: Round Three

So I received a response from Amazon about the paperback version of Taken.

Yet another form letter.

Here is what they keep sending me, regardless of what I write:

This Ryan L dude is always the one who writes me…although I seriously doubt it’s anyone named Ryan, or even remotely an American. I say this because the few responses that weren’t form letters were in broken, barely understandable English.

Outsourcing makes me so hostile, especially when shit like this results. I mean, the audiobook version is accepting auditions through Amazon, the ebook version is selling through Amazon, but the paperback… 😫


I’ve had a strange day today. Not bad, just strange. A little over-emotional, but mainly just quiet and reflective. And wanting to write. Badly. But I was at work, so I couldn’t, and that sent me through several rounds of severe emo’ness.

Tomorrow, though… 😈
