This post isn’t about me. It’s about my friends who are having anxiety attacks because of piracy. Friends who are thinking of quitting because the piracy is out of control. Friends who depend on book sales to have a roof over their head and food on their tables. Friends who wish they could depend on books to give them a roof over their head and food on their tables. It could be friends who self-published, or friends who are traditionally published. It doesn’t matter.
I hate piracy with a thriving passion. So much so I did all the math (which I also hate), to show you the breakdown of time and energy spent, and the cost of stealing. The numbers used in terms of hours spent is very very very low, and in reality, the number is probably double that. And still.
Please share this post. But mostly, please don’t steal books.
And in honour of World Book Day here is a Shelfie…

If Hollywood won’t make a Wonder Woman movie, the Internet will just keep making kickass Wonder Woman fan films.

I happen to know Rileah (the WW in this fan film) and she is so wonderful and amazing.
Honestly she would be a fantastic casting choice for an actual Wonder Woman movie too.
The last time a girl called Alice came here from your world, she brought down the whole House of Cards. Oh, yeah. Made quite an impression.
A picture I’ve had in my files for awhile. Decided to finish it.
Looks like a merrow…
