Another fake book. This one is still live here – note the author name Jule Owen Mean Time Books does not link to my Author Central Page. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08SJFL1W7
Update – 19th Dec 2020 – fake copies as seen below seem to have been removed by Amazon. Please keep an eye out for new ones and let me know if you see them.
Amazon’s process for author’s getting pirated books (and probably other copyrighted material) taken down off their marketplace is currently frustrating, completely non-transparent, time-consuming and takes days (it took me over 10 days to get this one taken down). Please make sure you are buying a genuine book from me rather than a pirate. Get in touch if you are not sure.

There are fake copies of The Boy Who Fell from the Sky being sold on Amazon marketplace. This copy is not being sold by me, so if you buy a copy you are paying someone who has illegally copied my book and is profiting from it. You are also being ripped off – paying way too much money. The book looks like this
You can get a real copy for free. What’s more, it is better formatted with a nice cover. Links to the official US and UK copies here
Amazon was notified on 7th December but has yet to remove it (it’s now 18th December).
Official versions of my books are listed on Author’s Central in the US and the UK.
Mindful that it’s Christmas, I didn’t want you (readers) to think it was some cool new version that I had published. It’s not. It’s the book you probably already read that’s been copied, badly formated and republished using an account not associated with me.
