Piracy

Well, I guess you could say, I've "arrived."

I came across a Tweet yesterday that posted a link to a free download of "The Beast Call."
Although I'm pleased as punch that people want to read my book, I am a little chagrined at the fact people are downloading it for free.

It's 99 cents people.
Splurge!

Oh, well.
I'd like to make my fair share and buy a gumball - which is about how much I make every time someone buys it.
Don't you want to contribute to my continued dental decay?
No?

A good friend recommended I look at the positive side.
I'm so "wildly popular" I'm being pirated!
Oh goody.

I'm about to go on a quest to see if I can't find free downloads of "Shut Up" too.
Since "Shut Up" is priced higher, I'm actually able to buy a whole sandwich when someone buys that book.

The Soapbox:
Free downloads of books are like free downloads of music.
Someone gets cheated.
It's not good karma, and not good for the arts in general.

Alright, I'm putting my soapbox away, for now.


SUPPORT THE ARTS - DON'T STEAL IT!

Ok, done - I promise.

JUST DON'T!

Shutting up now.
