Right, let's try again, shall we..?

April 19, 2015

Thought I'd give you an update on my previous blog entry about me and that other McGee.  No response from Simon & Schuster, so I've sent them yet another message via their US site, which is the main culprit.



Right, let's try again, shall we...?   Maybe it'll be third time lucky. Maybe someone actually bothers to read these e-mails.

Good Morning.

I would like to point out a fundamental error on your website: simonandschuster.com

Page URL:http://authors.simonandschuster.com/James-Mcgee/9702

I came upon the error a few weeks ago and have e-mailed both you and your UK division in the forlorn hope that someone might bother to respond.

The URL above refers to your site page referencing your author James Mcgee (your spelling).

First point: your author's surname is McGee. Spot the difference?  Upper Case 'G' anyone..?   

If that isn't bad enough, his correct name is actually shown on the cover of the book below, 'Main Justice', co-written by Brian Duffy.

It's Jim McGee. Not James McGee.

It's a trifle worrying when you can't even spell the name of your own author.

Could you do me a favour and address the cock up and amend the page to reflect the correct information?

I came across the page from the Google link:

James Mcgee | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

That intrigued me so I took a look out of curiosity.


I know this comes across as a rant - which it is - but it could be confusing to readers who are searching for either me or Jim McGee.

Bad enough that we both have to compete with that damned tennis player..!

Thanks for your assistance.


Yours frustratingly,

James McGee
(HarperCollins author)
