Good news! The pirated copies of The Cyber Chronicles - Queen of Arlin, and Slave Empire - Prophecy, have been taken down on Amazon.com. Although the staff at Amazon did not respond to my emails regarding this matter, the message evidently got through this time. I'd like to thank everyone who sent emails or made comments on the site, which undoubtedly led to the pirated books being removed.
These books are both available for free on Smashwords.com and it's a sad day when pirates try to make money out of other people's work. A special thanks to Tracy Falbe, who went the extra mile to email Amazon and added reviews warning people about the books being pirated copies. Thanks Tracy! Visit Tracy's site http://www.falbepublishing.com/braveluck/index.html and get a free copy of the first book of her epic fantasy series Union of Renegades.
I hope one day my books will be available on Amazon, but at the moment Smashwords has a technical difficulty with this. Other news is I have now published the rest of The Cyber Chronicles series, Book IV, Cyborg, Book V, Overlord, Book VI, Warrior Breed, Book VII, Sabre, Book VIII, Scorpion Lord and Book IX, Precipice, and they're available on Smashwords.com. You can find them all here: http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/TCSouthwell. They should be distributed to the other retailers within the next few weeks.
I am now working on Book VII of the Demon Lord series, which is tentatively titled Beast God.
