We woke up to a nasty surprise today- an email from All Romance Ebooks alerting all that they would be shuttering their doors after December 31st. Hopefully, if you’ve purchased books from them, you received it in time to download copies of all your books, so that you don’t lose them.
But three days ain’t a lot of time. Maybe some of you won’t have gotten the email until it was too late. Or maybe the site kept crashing, and you never managed to get through. What they did was really crappy on a lot of levels, and it’s understandable for readers and authors ALIKE to be fuming over the crappy treatment. (What they did to authors is a whole ‘nother story. But this isn’t about that.)
Anyways, for those of you who purchased my books from ARE, but are unable to download them in time, email me at KatiedeLong.firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of the book, and your preferred file format in the subject line. I’ll provide a free copy to replace it. You, the reader, shouldn’t have to bear losing your book collections because of an etailer’s business mistakes.
