It’s that time again! I am pleased to announce the Fall 2017 Issue of Nimue’s Grotto. I have gathered up nine stories for you this time, three of them by authors who have not been published before anywhere else. I have also included one of my own stories from Dreams in Transit, my collection of flash fiction stories. Although I don’t normally publish stories that have already been published, I did this time because two of the authors with stories in this issue are my husband and son.
To see the issue, please point your browser to Nimue’s Grotto and enjoy.
What good is copyright if it doesn’t stop people from stealing?
Copyright violation is an awful thing. Someone has taken my book, Dreams in Transit, converted it to a PDF file, and uploaded it to a downloads site for other members to download for free.
How do I know? I have a Google alert defined for my book, Dreams in Transit. Today I got a message with an alert and, when I checked it out, there was a link that turned out to be to a site that is allowing my book to be downloaded for free. I have sent them an email notifying them that it is a copyright violation for them to offer my book for free without my permission. I told them to stop. I doubt it will do much good. Is it worth hiring a lawyer? I’m sure Amazon isn’t going to help.
With the fact that my book has barely sold, I’m wondering how anyone knows about it to be trying to violate my copyright by stealing it.
I will update this post when I see what happens.
