Cats And Dogs

My short stories have transferred from Smashwords to the ibookstore and translated the ‘teen fiction’ category to ‘children’s stories’.  When I look at the downloads I find that in the ‘customers also bought’ section are books for young children.  Of course, this means I get some seriously low stars and negative comments, and quite rightly so.  A seven-year old doesn’t want to read a book on abandonment or death.  Consequently I have decided to change the category to adult but am slightly wary as I wonder if the category will translate as something more than I intended! 

I shall of course be contacting Smashwords to investigate this problem, but with the translation problem we may end up with category changed to, oh, I don’t know, dogs?

So watch this space fellow bloggers and if you’ve found a solution I’d love to know.

About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
