If you didn't know, I've asked for my stories to be withdrawn from Trestle Press. There's no point explaining why as it's all over the internet.
Obviously it's a set back in my quest for world domination, but that's what life's all about isn't it. The short story formally known as Das Slap will become a novella at some future point. The other one, A Life in Rags, I will be putting up for free when I work out how to make something free on Amazon.
My only hope is this whole thing doesn't put off other small publishers from attempting to enter e-book and niche markets. The reputation of indie, small and self publishing was bad enough without this, and I think the major publishers have just been given a big stick to beat us with.
Anyway, life goes on and lessons have been more than learnt.
