It has come to my attention that once again my work is being sold illegally in the form of a biography of Grand Duchess Elizabeth, which I wrote seven or eight years ago and for which I alone hold the copyright. About two years ago, a lawyer wrote on my behalf to the seller of the book, informing him that I am the copyright holder and he has no right to sell this work. Consequently, it is being sold illegally and, anyone purchasing it from the Eurohistory site or any other outlet can be deemed to be in possession of stolen property. Other book retail outlets have been informed of this.
Apart from the legal implications, I would recommend that anyone wishing to read my interpretation of the Grand Duchess’ life, would do far better to read the novel: Most Beautiful Princess. This book is contains all the information from the biography but also delves more deeply into the characters. What is more, the illegally sold biography is poorly put together, with disjointed fonts and binding which falls apart very easily and is not worth the high price which the seller is charging for it. It would be far more sensible to purchase Most Beautiful Princess, which has a proper ISBN and barcode, better binding and is about twelve dollars less expensive, and which is also available on Kindle, Nook and Apple iplayer!
More brightly, I am happy to announce that the second book of the trilogy, Shattered Crowns: The Sacrifice, is now available in paperback as well as Kindle.
