Barnes and Noble Hecate's Own

UPDATE 4/15: Hecate's Own is no longer on the B&N site. I'm hoping that means they're resolving the issue with the bad file. Hope it's done soon!

UPDATE 4/15, Pt. 2: I hear the file has been fixed, and the book is now available for download. The link from my website works again.
So. I've gotten some emails telling me that people have bought the Barnes and Noble version of Hecate's Own, only to find that they haven't received a sexy witch shifter, but instead... 14 pages of poetry. Apparently bad poetry, from the numerous complaints I've gotten.

My publisher is are aware of it and is trying to fix it. They're in contact with Barnes and Noble, hoping to get it resolved as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, you can always purchase through Samhain (@samhainpub) and side-load it onto your device.

Here are Samhain's instructions on how to side-load a book if you want to go that route:


EPUB and PDF files both work on Nook, but we recommend EPUB when you have them. eBooks you load won’t appear in the cover slide show or the main ebook menu. They are in the My Documents section. Just like Kindle, you plug in the Nook with the USB cord. Open the Nook drive/folder and drag-n-drop your books into the My Documents folder within.

I am one of those poor soul waiting for Barnes and Noble to get this book back again. I went to read it and imagine my surprise when it was a sample of something that really wasn't worth reading in the first place... Thanks for letting us know that this issue is getting the attention it deserves.
