Name Change  

Due to some... er, legal papers that arrived on my door, I have had to change the title of the short stor CSFTS - And All That Crap.

I am amused more than anything.  Simon would be as well.

I admit that at the time I didn't give the title much thought and really didn't think that anybody searching for one of those fin CSFT books would think my humble story was part of the official franchise.

But you live and learn.  Within 48 hours it should be showing under its brand spanking new name Just Like Florence Nightingale.  I really hope that Flo's rellies don't come after me next.  Or that any old dears download it thinking it is a new biography of that sainted nurse.

So, if your stories on your kindle change all of a sudden, you know why.  And I repeat, not a new story - just a new title.

As a vegetarian, Sean doesn't eat chicken soup anyway.  If he goes for the canned variety he sticks to Campbells Rich Tomato.

I figured that might be the one, when you mentioned it on Twitter, but I'm just surprised that it's taken them that long to do anything.

But at least you got to just change the title and keep the work up. :)

Well, it hadn't actually been that long on Amazon, which was where they most likely saw it. Or, someone maybe complained to them.

So weird. I've never read one of their books although my kid got one for Christmas from her religious aunt and uncle. I have a feeling it will go unread as well. LOL

What can ya do? *shrug*

I really don't know why anyone would want to read them.

But then again, they would probably say that about my stuff ;)

*snorts* You had me a bit worried when you first mentioned the issue, so I'm happy it turned out you could easily solve their problem. Now it's kind of funny;) LOVE the new title!

Thanks! I was more amused than anything, but if it had gotten more intense I probably would have started stressing.

Man, it's so silly that they would even put so much energy into the whole thing, isn't that phrase used ALL THE TIME anyway? Either way, I do love the new title... Am now tempted to go look at my Kindle to see if it changed!

Mine didn't change, I wonder if you have to do something manually?

This is so ridiculous. As they probably paid more to serve those papers then you you most likely made the jokes kinda on them.

Of course instead of just using a similar title you should have just copied the text/theme of one of their books and add kinky sex, then you would have been the author of the year.

Yeah, just like what they're doing to the poor classics at the moment. Man, that burns my heart.

You could've gone with Chicken Pot Pie for the Soul...And All That Crap. HeeHee

I think they probably still would have ceased and desisted ;)
