LET'S PRETEND is on sale! #RomCom #Romance #Bestseller #NewRelease

First let me say Yay! Let's Pretend is live and on sale at Amazon. And then let me say, yayyyyy, Let's Pretend is FINALLY live. You wouldn't believe the hassle I've had to get this rom-com available for purchase.

First, I mistakenly uploaded the wrong version of the book, only to realize when the file was in the KDP review process and I had no way of righting the mistake until the book published. I waited anxiously for the book to go live so I could quickly upload the correct file, all the while praying that no one bought the book before I fixed the faux pas. I waited...and waited...and waited for the book to go live. 

Finally, I got an email from KDP apologizing for some glitch that meant the email they sent me earlier in the day didn't actually deliver, so they were going to re-send. 

Would you believe they wanted me to prove that Let's Pretend is my own work and that I'm not infringing on someone else's copyright?? Of course Let's Pretend is my own work! Stunned, I had to think for a second as to how I could possibly prove the MS is mine. Then I remembered my Reversion emails from TWRP giving me back my rights. I emailed KDP immediately, and included my TWRP reversion email for Let's Pretend

I didn't hear back from them, but the book went live a couple of hours later. I can only surmise that somehow when TWRP pulled my books, after they gave me back my rights, Amazon didn't fully delete the info and Let's Pretend got flagged because of it--who knows?

I have no idea what I would have done without my TWRP Reversion email. Has this happened to you? How did you prove the copyright was yours? Does anyone have any wise suggestions on how to deal with this in the future? I'd love to hear your views.

Let's Pretend is available from Amazon now.

NEW Re-released Rom-Com:

"WARNING: Some scenes will leave you breathless!" —Teresa Blue, author of Man of Her Dreams.

True love needs no pretence

When A&E trauma surgeon, Dr. Isobel Murphy, married sexy Irish firefighter, Lucas Delaney, she knew it was going to be forever. Unfortunately, she didn’t realise forever would only last five short years. 

Keeping her failed marriage from her family seems like a piece of cake, until her grandmother calls a family gathering and Belle suspects she’s about to announce a critical illness. Making excuses for Luc’s absence, she flies home to Connecticut. Then delicious Lucas arrives for the three-day get-together and Belle knows things are going to get dicey. Especially since he still has the power to make her heart miss a beat, and her stomach bottom out. 

When Belle asks him to pretend they’re still deeply in love, Luc doesn’t have a problem. He sees an opportunity to reclaim the love of his life. And he goes all out to remind Belle how it used to be between them, before long work hours and clashing schedules invaded their marriage. What he needs to know though, is, once the pretence is over, will Belle be applying for her decree absolute? Or will they be renewing wedding vows?

  1. Sounds like a the headache, Monique! But your swift thinking saved the day by finding that revsion letter. Good for you and I'm going to take time and make save file for even sold manuscripts.


  2. Hi, Tere,

    Great idea. I have no clue what I would have produced to show copyright ownership otherwise. It's always best to keep records no matter how tedious it seems.

  3. I too self-published a previously published book through KDP. Lucky, I didn't have to prove that I had the copyrights to my novel, but I had the email ready to email them, which gave me back my rights... just in case.

    And yeah, I don't think they get rid of anything. When my book went live there was all the old reviews still there from before.


  4. Hi, Janice,

    I hope I never have to deal with that again. You are right, all of my reviews came back. For some, that can be a good or bad thing.

  5. So sorry to hear how much trouble you had. I hope it is all smooth sailing for you from now on! As to maintaining copyright, I once heard long ago to mail your drafts to yourself and leave the letters unopened. Now I email stuff to myself. It's quick, it's easy, and you don't need to know IT jargon to explain to someone what's yours. :-D

  6. Hi, Lora,

    Thanks for visiting! Great idea, I do the same, just need to file them properly :D. I didn't think of using emailed MS as proof, though. Thanks!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I greatly appreciate it! :) :)
