Seems Legit.

There is a phenomenon in which some skeevy lowlife steals a title and often a manuscript from a published book and re-publishes them on Amazon in his own account, trying to fool readers into buying his “edition” of the story and stealing royalties from the author.

Most of the time, though, they do a better job of matching a more plausible cover.


Note that Laura Dower has written many books on her own and isn’t the one behind this; the doaty nyaff is stealing her work, too.

I’ve informed Amazon and it should be corrected (read: removed) soon. But at least we got a good chuckle out of it. Kitsune-Mochi‘s actual cover is somewhat less bejeweled.
