So...

If you didn't know, I've asked for my stories to be withdrawn from Trestle Press.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.

Great stuff, Charlie - put that whole Trestle Press nonsense behind you and forge ahead with your plans. Good luck! :)

(Oh - and I love the new cover, obviously. ;p)

Thanks Jools. It's time to get back on with it, as they say.
