Stories I've stolen

Today I'm over at Sommer Marsden's blog, talking about the poor innocent fairytales I co-opted into Named and Shamed.  

Heh. I am so bad.


You can now buy the e-version of Named and Shamed for kindle - but these versions come WITHOUT interior illustrations by John LaChatte, I'm afraid.

Amazon US : Amazon UK

The uncensored, illustrated e-version is however available from
and will soon be available via Waterstones.

I'm curious why you decided not to have the illustrated version on Kindle? I made the same choice with Mummy's Girl, but it was a gut feeling and not based on anything.

Other than that, it is yummy so far. :)

It wasn't my decision!

This was something Sweetmeats have done, and I think it has to do with a real sense of wariness about Amazon and its sudden urges toward censorship. For example, they don't like nipples or genitals on covers, and have deleted books for that (seemingly at random, because for example I bought Brian Tarsis' "City of Dreams" off Amazon, and that has boobs right out there). The powers that be are MUCH more inclined to censor images than text, and we're all pretty sure that the next Paypal-esque attack on erotica will be aimed at graphic novels. To start with, anyway.
