Added new book - "Forced Mate Rowena Cherry"Reported Twitter account: NancyWrebb
Description of Infringement: I am the author of Forced Mate. NancyWrebb is directing Twitter users to wiredshelf.com which is a pirate site (Russian, I think) which posts illegal copies of copyrighted works without the permission of copyright owners, and ignores DMCA notices. wiredshelf.com has been infringing my copyright for months. Has ignored 4 takedown notices. Is allegedly a scam charging "subscriptions" then misusing credit card info. My copyrighted books are being published and distributed illegally.
Type of infringing material: n/a

Anything else?(optional): In my opinion this NancyWrebb account does nothing but post book titles to encourage innocent Twitter users to click through to the scam/pirate site. This is not a legal library, and they do not have permission to profit from my works

Twitter Trust & Safety
You may not find the Tweet "Added new book - "Forced Mate Rowena Cherry" objectionable in itself. You should look at the entire profile to comprehend what is going on here. Where was my book added? Why does this user post that she added my book? Look at the url at the top of her page. The live link goes to the Russian/Chinese pirate site wiredshelf.com which is no "library". Forced Mate by Rowena Cherry is not available as an ebook from anyone except myself. I have not sold a copy to these people, I have not signed any contract with any "library" for this book.By the way, Twitter likes to threaten and silence righteous copyright owners by warning them that
