In association with the Argentino family, and for the benefit of the My Sisters’ Place women’s shelter, I am thrilled to be publishing tomorrow, May 10, the ebook JUSTICE DENIED: The Untold Story of Nancy Argentino’s Death in Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka’s Motel Room. This is on the 30th anniversary of the infamous incident outside Allentown, Pennsylvania, for which I and many others believe Snuka at least should have been indicted for involuntary manslaughter.
JUSTICE DENIED is the sixth ebook I have published. The other five went through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing technical system without incident. But an ironic problem arose today when I uploaded the content to KDP: I got a message back requesting more copyright information. It seems that KDP computer review algorithms detected that some of the material in the book was published elsewhere online.
What’s ironic is that this is all my own registered copyrighted material. But so many pirated versions of my original 1992 article about the case are floating around that KDP’s faceless screener apparently detected possible “infringements” by me of what it doesn’t realize are themselves the infringers!
I emailed the requested information back to Amazon, and my hope is that this will all be straightened out Friday morning. But there’s no one to talk to on the phone about the problem. KDP is a wonderful do-it-yourself tool for authors, but the downside is the publisher impersonality you have to work through in a scenario like this.
ANYWAY … The PDF version of the ebook is available right now. Readers who either don’t have Kindle-compatible devices or don’t want to wait through this little delay are advised to send $2.99, via PayPal, to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get you your copy of JUSTICE DENIED by email attachment.
