KDP Select Promo and Imitators (It was bound to happen sooner or later!)

It's been nearly a year since my last post. Truth is, I haven't been doing much to promote my work these days (although there will be a KDP select promo for Text Me, Guido today till Saturday). I've been focussing my efforts on writing two novels that I plan to have published through traditional means. Why have I given up on self-publishing? I guess I will save that explanation for another post. I just wanted to comment on something I noticed recently.

Here's a book that was published on May 30, 2014: http://www.amazon.com/Text-Me-Love-Eli-Shulga-ebook/dp/B00KOWOMOE/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1402984382&sr=1-1&keywords=text+me+love

Sound familiar? Even the cover page is the same concept as Text Me, Guido. Oh well, I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. I wish Eli Shulga the best of luck with his book, and maybe he will have more luck than I've had.
