A reader has tipped me to the news that the FictFact service has shut down. (Thanks, Eric!) The company sent the following notice to users:
We recently lost our primary source of income, Amazon Associate sales. Due to a minor error on our part, we unknowingly had in infraction of their terms. We tried to appeal after we corrected the issue, but was not successful and they terminated our account. Over the years, we have had donations from our wonderful supporters, but it is not enough to cover our operating costs. We are extremely sad to have to close down the site after almost 10 years. Thank you for all your support over the years!!
Please login to download your book data as a CSV file before July 1, 2019.
I will confess that I have never heard of the site, but apparently it helped readers keep track of the release of new books in a series or by a specific author.
That sounds like something you can do with Amazon or Goodreads, doesn’t it?
