Not a hoax.
Today, due to the misfortune of another author, I discovered a website offering free downloads of my book. While the book is definitely not a best-seller and the royalties have yet to allow me to even think about quitting my day job, it is the principle causing me to guard my intellectual property rights. I have written the contact address of the website (leakbook.info) requesting the immediate removal of my intellectual property.
I will provide a free signed copy of my book, Lifting the Veil on the Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men, to the first person sending an email to me with the link to any other website illegally offering my book for sale, for free viewing , or any other use not consistent with applicable copyright laws.
Thank you for your time and attention,
