So last night, I made a tool of myself. Today: you profit from my being a butthead. Hooray!
Last night I was ticked off and cranky and the icing on my small torte of pissypants was that a book I’ve been wanting to buy, Lorelei James’ All Jacked Up, was unavailable still. The Amazon page says that because I’m in the US, I’m not able to buy the book – and I got all indignant and shoved my head up my ass on Twitter (SO amazing how easy it is to do that! Whee!) and thought the problem resided with Samhain.
Lindsey Faber from Samhain kindly emailed me last night to say the problem is with Amazon (THE DEVIL YOU SAY) and while they’ve made requests that the geographic restrictions be corrected, Amazon has not taken care of it. (It is nice, I must say, to have cranio-rectal impacted company, though Amazon isn’t always my first choice for benchmate).
I apologized on Twitter – and I apologize here, as well. I’m sorry.
And for my humble pie (Mmm, pie), you win!
Samhain is giving away 10 books to 10 winners to make up for the fact that Amazon (and I) are in the penalty box for the time being. Just leave a comment with your preferred geographic location OUTSIDE the US (where you’d be able to buy the digital books you want) and you’re entered to win a copy of one of the currently blocked books from Amazon:
We’ll pick 10 winners, and those chosen will receive a copy of the book of their choice from that list in the format of their choice, all without DRM or geographic restrictions. Ready, set, go – you’ve got 24 hours.
Me? I’d like to be in Spain. Because currently, it’s siesta time there. And I need a nap after this helping of shamefaced humble pie. (Mmm. Pie.)
