...just hours after I wrote this post, iTunes took down the offending Smashwords ebooks. lol. Coincidence? Maybe.... Anyway, if you were one of the customers who received a faulty ebook of Severed from iTunes, read on...
Soooo....something's totally screwy with Smashwords and iTunes. My books aren't even supposed to be on iTunes right now and I've struggled for weeks to get them down. Smashwords isn't responding to my queries, which doesn't help at all.
Somehow Severed got messed up on iTunes (which I can't figure out how it happened, but something's not right the with the interior files). People are asking for refunds in the review section, which I would happily authorize - if anyone in power would respond to my pleas for help.
So, for now, don't buy my books on iTunes. I'm trying to sever my iTunes distribution through Smashwords. Once that happens, I will be able to control everything on my own as a qualified distributor directly through iTunes.
No one ever said self-publishing wasn't filled with minefields. But hey, I'm working my butt off to get the problems fixed.
Anyone buy a copy of Severed on iTunes and receive the wrong product?
Drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org - I'll work with you to solve it.
