Julie’s Been Working For The Drug Squad

julie's been working for the drug squad
Julie’s Been Working For The Drug Squad by the Clash is a favorite song for many people of a certain age. Did you know it was inspired by Operation Julie? It’s something I often forget to mention when discussing my own undercover cop memoir Undercover: Operation Julie – The Inside Story. The lyrics of Julie’s Been Working […]The post Julie’s Been Working For The Drug Squad appeared first on Stephen Bentley.Original link

Another Cogent Argument To Go Wide: Amazon Imprints

amazon imprints
It dawned on me some time ago that the very existence of Amazon imprints was counter-productive to an indie author who publishes on Amazon through KDP (and I include those who still have books with CreateSpace). For those who don’t know Amazon Imprints are books published by Amazon. The authors receive 30% royalties as opposed […]The post Another Cogent Argument To Go Wide: Amazon Imprints appeared first on Stephen Bentley.Original link

Why Truth is Indeed Stranger Than Fiction

Truth is indeed stranger than fiction
We all know the old saying ‘truth is stranger than fiction.’ The following true story tends to support the saying. It’s ironic I should stumble upon it just as Who The F*ck Am I? is released as an audiobook. That book of mine is the first in a trilogy, a series called Steve Regan Undercover […]The post Why Truth is Indeed Stranger Than Fiction appeared first on Stephen Bentley.Original link

Queen Victoria and I Are Not Amused!

queen victoria and i are not amused
Amazon have been at it again. So, both Queen Victoria and I are not amused. I have now developed a virtual shrug of the shoulders when I notice a review of any of my books has been deleted. I have come to the conclusion there is nothing to be done. I can’t identify the review. […]The post Queen Victoria and I Are Not Amused! appeared first on Stephen Bentley.Original link

An American View of Operation Julie – Britain’s Biggest Drug Bust

an American view of Operation Julie - Britain's biggest drug bust
It always intrigues me to read an American view of Operation Julie – Britain’s biggest drug bust.

The blogger reviews as Valerity on Amazon and Goodreads as well as […]The post An American View of Operation Julie – Britain’s Biggest Drug Bust appeared first on Stephen Bentley.Original link

Spot the Difference: KDP & CreateSpace Teething Problem?

KDP & CreateSpace teething problem
I hope it is a KDP & CreateSpace teething problem. My first encounter with KDP Customer Service in connection with paperbacks does not augur well. I cannot imagine my problem would have arisen under the old CreateSpace regime. Time will tell. At the moment I look upon the ‘Customer Service’ part of KDP as somewhat […]The post Spot the Difference: KDP & CreateSpace Teething Problem? appeared first on Stephen Bentley.Original link
