Winner of the 2002 Man Booker Prize for Fiction Pi Patel is an unusual boy. The son of a zookeeper, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior, a fervent love of stories, and practices not only his native Hinduism, but also Christianity and Islam. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes. The ship sinks. Pi finds himself alone in a lifeboat, his only companions a hyena, an orangutan, a wounded zebra, and Richard Parker, a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon the tiger has dispatched all but Pi, whose fear, knowledge, and cunning allow him to coexist with Richard Parker for 227 days lost at sea. When they finally reach the coast of Mexico, Richard Parker flees to the jungle, never to be seen again. The Japanese authorities who interrogate Pi refuse to believe his story and press him to tell them "the truth." After hours of coercion, Pi tells a second story, a story much less fantastical, much more conventional-but is it more true? Life of Pi is at once a realistic, rousing adventure and a meta-tale of survival that explores the redemptive power of storytelling and the transformative nature of fiction. It's a story, as one character puts it, to make you believe in God.

Less than 0,1% of all the authors alive today can make a living from their books. Much less than that, really know what is going on inside the publishing industry, simply because they lack the necessary amount of books, and research tools, to do studies and comparisons that allow reaching such deep, complex and hidden, but also still extremely obscure, level. I published 230 books and created my own publishing company to fightback this system, once I realized what was happening, and how certain companies were controlling, and even manipulating the whole market in their favor and in favor of the authors and books they wished to promote. And it might seem like a lost battle, a fight of David against Golias, but it did allow me to position myself among those top 0,1%, while putting nearly all of my titles classified as bestsellers among many different distributors. The irony in what I’m telling you, is that most authors have attacked me for saying the truth online, while thousands of many others kept silent, afraid that if they said something, their image and their sales would somehow be affected. And yet, “I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate but apathy” (Dr. Leo Buscaglia). This widespread cowardice, made me realize that most authors aren’t really authors, but just writers, people that think their self-esteem can be built from writing and publishing a book, whatever the quality of such book might be. They even seem to get surprised when they can’t see copies, as if readers were obliged to buy crap just because the author wants to make some sales. But “it is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities” (J.K. Rowling). Very few people inside the publishing industry know how it works, and those are the few that can fight it at the top level, and survive, despite all the odds against them. Among many, Smashwords certainly deserves our praise, for the immense investment they have put in fighting against giants like Amazon, in any way they can, after diplomacy and cooperation seem to fail. In this book, you won’t find words against anyone or any company, but the raw truth, of what is really going on with the publishing world. As what I wrote here is a reflection of my personal struggle for nearly 10 years, to make a living as the successful author I am today, it reveals everything that I found about the book market, when at war with it, when using everything I know and at my disposal, to research, analyze replies to my complains, and measure what is really happening. And even though many things written here can’t be precisely proven, because it’s obviously impossible to investigate them, as in any other research, you can make your own conclusions by analyzing the data provided, and the obvious logic presented, as some things are so obvious that only someone that doesn’t want to see the truth won’t, as a fact, see it. Hopefully, these pages will shed some light on everyone that can contribute to make the world of publishing books much more realistic that what it really is, as we, the insiders, may know that almost all the bestselling lists out there are a total bullshit, but nearly none of the readers, the outsiders, knows it. This battle isn’t currently balancing the market towards those who deserve the biggest share, but towards the sharks that control it. And so, may this truth empower readers, either they are authors, publishers, or readers. Because, “in any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing” (Theodore Roosevelt).

I’m Mags McAllister, and my cat is a ghost. Well, sort of. It’s a long story. All you really need to know is that, thanks to said cat, I can now see the spirits of people long past. They bring me the mysteries surrounding their death and expect me to solve them. But you can’t exactly do a quick Google search to learn more about small-town events that happened more than a century ago. Apparently you help one wayward specter and more will start appearing at the foot of your bed in the middle of the night. Uh-huh, I’m creeped out, too. ​​​​​​​ This time, a Victorian-era gentleman named Patrick is in need of my assistance. Now what could he possibly want? I guess there’s only one way to find out…
