We are now taking pre-orders for book # 6. The book is just waiting for some edits which were having issues but should hopefully be online by the end of the month. I am taking orders for the book at a sale price (not sure whether we will keep this price or not). You can buy them online @ 4 Paws Games and Publishing
I can't tell you how excited I am right now. For the first time ever, Freckles and I have our first ISBN (published through 4 Paws Games and Publishing). Up until now, we have used CreateSpace's assigned ones. For those who don't know, CreateSpace is in the U.S so this is a Canadian ISBN. I will eventually be taking down other books (retiring them) so that they have a new Canadian ISBN as well under the same publisher. Book 6 will be online within the next week if we are lucky. I will not be ordering books until next month, however I will be taking pre-orders.
I know Freckles' books have been out 3 times a year normally but with a new business going and new books, I think we will be slowing down to 2 for now.
We also have a new editor so books 1 - 5 will be edited as well in time and should look even better than before.
In the meantime, we are just waiting for the last of the edits and for our new ISBNs to come in. Once we have that all in, book 6 will be launching online. We will be taking pre-orders for it as well from the website. You will be able to purchase them off of Amazon.com or here for a signed copy. The next book will begin to be worked on as soon as we can.
Here is a bit of an update on what has happened so far:
1. My image (their pillowcase) has been removed from VintageSh0p's Amazon.com store.
2. They sent me this unbelievable letter:
Dear Vickianne Caswell,
Sincerely sorry for the trouble brought to you.
In fact, we've just opened the online store and we've got this photo from online, which is the most popular style in these years. We have no idea about this copyright is belong to you until got your message. Sorry again for this inconvenience brought to you.
And now, we had deleted the product from all catalog and will never use the photo any more. Please forgive us this unintentionally mistake.
We will pay more attention on this matter. Thanks for your kindly reminding.
So why don't I believe it?
1. My copyright that they downloaded was on the one side of their pillowcase.
2. I found out many other images have been taken without permission too by other artists.
3. These artists are all on Zazzle.
While I appreciate the image being removed and yes you better darn well not use the image again VintageSh0p, you lie. You knew the copyright was there because you downloaded that too. You kept taking from the same website and from different artists. Nice try but I will keep watching you.
It has recently come to my attention that one of my products on Zazzles (as well as other works belonging to other people) have been used without my permission on a product for sale on Amazon.com. I contacted the company but they didn't seem to concerned with my complaint as they are still selling my work on their products. I have contacted a few of the #artists, #Amazon & #Zazzle but I am not sure what they intend to do about it. I will keep you updated. Here is the link for VintageSh0p:

We have been taking books offline so that 4 Paws Games and Publishing could place their logo on the back of our books as well as go through it. As each one is completed, we have removed and then added them back online for sale. Amazon.com takes a few days but has book 3 online now (the others are all still there as we have yet to take them offline temporarily). Smashwords has the e-book online however it may be a little before it is listed once more on places such as Barnes & Noble so please be patient. We will be sure to keep you updated as the books go down and then back online. Thank you for your patience!
