E-Book Piracy May Change the Future of RiverHouse Publishing’s Releases

Let me vent for a while, ladies, if you don’t mind.  I spent many months, weeks, days, hours on my work.  So, it pains me to no end when I see that readers purchase my book and then post it on illegal forums, even against 17 U.S.C. § 512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”).  Why a person would want to first pirate another person’s personal work, then pawn if off for free.  Needless to say, I’ve already contacted the FBI and my lawyers.  This upsets me very much and provides to me the understanding of that double-edged sword of technology.  While I have loved the Kindle, Nook and PDF capabilities, I’m not sure that it’s worth being the victim of other people’s inconsiderate and costly behavior. 

What are your thoughts? Have any of you ever experienced this with your own work or have you ever pirated? 

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Thursday, July 15—Latrivia Nelson, Dmitry’s Closet. Urban Fiction and Interracial Romance readers nationwide immediately flocked to the bestselling multicultural phenomenon released in January of 2010, Dmitry’s Closet, a racy action-adventure about a Russian mobster and an African-American virginal heroine battling for their love in the Southern city of Memphis, Tennessee. Author Latrivia S. Nelson sat on internet bestseller lists across the country for over 4 weeks as people talked about the fusion of two popular but distinct genres. Now Nelson is dropping the second book in the Medlov Crime Family Series, Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen on July 5, 2010 and fans nationwide are excited.

Introducing the Cover of My Newest Book – Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen

Let me be the first to say how proud I am of Kandace Tuggle,  our exclusive designer at RiverHouse Publishing, LLC for her fabulous work on the new cover for the much anticipated Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen book from the Medlov Crime Family Series.  We had a great conference call with the girls a few days back, where I told them that this would be coming.  Now, here it is as promised.

For me, when I see the cover, I know that the entire book is almost complete.  I always save the cover until the end to make sure that it really encompasses what the story is all about – mostly because I tend to deviate.

So, ladies, here it is.  We also have the site (www.dmitrysroyalflush.com)  , Twitter (HisRoyalFlush) and very soon Facebook. I hope  that you all are having a great day.  And don’t forget the drop date of July 5th.  More information will be coming out in the next few days.

Talk to you soon.

Xoxo and all that jazz,

Latrivia S. Nelson


For Dmitry and Royal Medlov, money doesn’t equal happiness.  Forced to leave Memphis, TN and flee to Prague after a brutal mafia war, the couple nestled into the countryside to raise their daughter, Anya, and lead a safe, quiet life.   But when Dmitry’s son, Anatoly, shows up with an offer he can’t refuse, Dmitry is forced to go back to the life he left as boss of the most feared criminal organization in world.  Consequently, the deal could not only destroy the Medlov Crime Family but also Dmitry and Royal.     

 Royal hasn’t been the same since she was attacked three years ago.  Where she used to be a sweet, innocent girl, she’s now a jaded, bitter woman, who can’t be coddled by riches and luxury.  However, a reality check is in store for the pre-Madonna when Anya’s new teacher shows up with her sights set on stealing Dmitry, and Ivan’s old ally shows up with sights on killing him.  Can Royal save them all?  Will she?

With a family in such turmoil, the only way to survive is to stick together.  Read the gripping tale of a marriage strong enough to stand the test of time as Dmitry realizes that he has the best cards in the house as long as has a Royal Flush.

Dmitry’s Closet is now available at Barnes & Noble

We all love to go to the bookstore.  My favorite outings includes going to our local B&N and hanging out with my husband for hours going through the shelves looking for awesome new books.  I am so pleased to announce to everyone nationwide that Barnes & Noble now carries Dmitry’s Closet on their website and for a limited time, they are offering everyone the member price of $9.35. 

What this means is if you (1) have a B&N card and only order your books through them, (2) want to call and have Dmitry’s Closet delivered to your favorite (B&N) store or (3) want to tell a friend where to order the book, you can now do so!

Our next step with Barnes & Noble is to get the book on shelves.  This may take a while, however, stay prayerful with us that this happens.  Spread the word to everyone!

And thanks so much for your support.  We are still on Amazon’s Bestseller List for Mulitcultural books for the 4th weekend in a row.

Xoxo and that jazz,

Latrivia S. Nelson
