It’s a fact of life that eventually the book you worked super hard on to write is going to end up on some jackhole’s site just giving away the pdf for free.
To call it frustrating would be a gross understatement.
By now, every reader knows the deal: Pirating books take away royalties from authors, it sucks, etc. and so on. But hey, I’m broke, unemployed, and trying to get disability. I haven’t purchased a book since, wow it’s been a while. And I LOVE M/M stories and am a fool for audiobooks.
For me, that means reading free stories, and in some cases, not reading at all. Given that I can’t read while I have a work in progress, this has been quite doable.
For others who are low in the cash department, I understand the temptation. Just, for crying out loud, if you must, don’t get the books from these shitty sites. Some of them are spoofs, some just want your info, some pdf files may just be viruses in disguise, and they just suck. Ask a fellow reader who purchased the book, if you absolutely must. Sure I’ll be missing a royalty, but again, I’m broke and I understand and I’d rather miss one royalty and maybe gain a reader that might buy one of my books when they have the cash than…a lot of them thanks to these shitty sites.
If you can actually afford to buy a book, and pirate it anyway…then I’m kinda hoping that pdf is a virus.
So, the other reason why I have a You Tube channel is because I get together with some romance loving friends twice a month and we talk about some of the hottest books. We’re doing an episode tonight, featuring a fan fave, Damon Suede’s Hot Head! We do this live over Google Hangouts, so please feel free to join us on YouTube and leave comments (we’ll respond on air) and if you can’t join us live, the vid will be uploaded to YouTube the moment we’re done!
Tonight, 8:30CST/9:30EST! See you then!
Now for something completely different:
Tonight, we’re getting naughty times two tonight with two BDSM books tonight on Happily Ever After. In ten minutes (that 8:30 CST/9:30 EST), we’ll be covering Giving an Inch and A Perfect Solution. Come join us!
