So here's the thing. People steal. People torrent ebooks, music, tv shows, and movies because they believe they have the right to do so. It's going to happen and because often these sites are hosted in countries with incredibly lax standards regarding the intellectual property rights of others -- they get away with it.

It's going to happen and I can't focus on it because it would just lead to me being discouraged and fill me up with so much anger that I have no room for anything else. So I've reported the torrent thing to my publisher and they'll send a take down notice that will probably be ignored. You see, these sites they don't face any sort of legal consequences for their actions.

My only real recourse as a writer is to rely on good, honest people to not steal from me. There probably isn't a book published on the market today that hasn't been pirated by some asshole who places no value on the work of the creator. They don't value the time or the creativity of the author and absolutely nothing is going to change that mindset.

Just remember if you're tempted to download something off the internet for free when you know you shouldn't -- you're disrespecting the work that many people put into producing it.

You're slapping writers, actors, directors, AND the people who purchased it legimately in the face every single time you pirate something.

Check out the awesome ebook covers [ profile] fanarts_series made for me. I'll be making the ebooks for these 2 stories this week sometime. :-) In other news, I've upgraded the chat room on my site to a paid feature to allow for up to 75 chatters at once, at least this way I'll be able to get into my own dang chatroom on a regular basis. You can disable the chat if you're not interested in clicking on the first section on the right. You'll see a little "gear" icon -- this will allow you to turn the chat off if you aren't interested. Only logged in members can even see the chatroom so you can always log out when you're reading all fan fiction on the site is available to public except for the ebook section, forums, and chat -- that I restrict to keep my bandwidth reasonable. On the ebook front -- I currently offer: PDF, LIT, ePub, and PRC (kindle) -- is there a format out there that I'm missing that you'd like to see for download? I'd rather not provide an RTF or a .txt file but other than that I have Calibre and I will make books with a mighty click of my mouse!
