Paper Pirates Possibility

#BookPirating Print copies of your books being sold on #ebay,
For my fellow authors who follow me, my readers who support me, all I will say is, thank you for your support, we are working together, and we are #authorshelpingauthors! To those who are in on this shameful scheme to make money off of other authors’ hard work, we ARE on to you and we will work together to protect our work and help each other! We are united!

The thing that’s got me wondering is that they’re both being offered on ebay too as paper books. I stopped looking after four different sellers there. (Click on pics to see them bigger)
