    Created by David Parsons, Sinnful aims to help give a global platform to Erotic & Romance writers and artists – both new and emerging, and more established writers and artists.
    http://www.authoramp.com/2014/11/sin...mance-writers/
    I couldn't find any info about David Parsons, but a W Parsons lives in Sinnful's post code area (L5J1C8, according to Facebook).

    Seriously, people who are incapable of setting up a website and proofreading their copy probably shouldn't be in the publishing business. One of the Sinnful Ebooks I found on Amazon was at least readable, the other didn't have a Look Inside feature...but here's an extract from it I found on Smashwords:

    Skating backwards and dancing around to the music, Katia Cruz 26 years of age ends her performance in the middle of the ice with her right arm under her chin and her legs spread eagle. She just skated the skate of her life but there are many more to come in the qualifying stages of the World Championship of Figure Skating. With many twist and turns in her free program the hopes of qualifying in a great position for the next stage is good. Katia with a big white smile wearing a red dress with diamond sparkles on it. Wearing red skates, with her shoulder length black hair free flowing and not tied back. With a C cup in bust she is very perky.
    Sinnful Ebooks is a division of DA Media, whatever that is.

    I also wonder if Sinnful obtained permission to use the image featured in their logo, as it turns up here:

    The poor English of Sinnful's Facebook and Twitter, particularly the Unnecessary Capital Letters and chronic shortage of commas, is very similar to that of the book I quoted above. I'd be surprised if this was just a coincidence, given that it was Sinnful's first release.

    Oh, and how's this for a dubious claim:

    He/she ran out of characters at that point but we can complete the sentence - "...made from Sinnful E books."

    The person behind Sinnful also seems to be behind another Mississauga-based business, "Fast and Forever Blankets", who are the lucky recipients of a shout-out on Sinnful's Twitter.

    Mmm...where have I seen that distinctive spelling error before?

    This may well be the first time anyone has combined the careers of erotica writer and knitter of woolly blankets.
