One of the cool things about blogging is tracking how people arrive at your blog. To get here people have typed “anne calhoun” into a search engine, or “liberating lacey” or “mortgage broker sex” (who knew?) orÂ “sexy romantic slave” (I don’t want to know).
They’ve also typed things like “liberating lacey free download” and, horrifyingly, “going too far by jennifer echols + free download”.
People, I’m appalled. If you find my book available for free somewhere on the internet and you download it, you’re stealing both from me and from my publisher. That’s wrong, and perhaps more important, it’s bad karma. Same thing goes for downloading music. You want artists of any kind to keep producing the art you want to read or listen to or look at? Buy it. I buy your services as a cable installer or a programmer or a barista or a lawyer. Buy mine as a writer (or Jennifer Echols’…and trust me, her book is well worth the $8.40 you’ll pay for it on amazon or similar).
That is all.
