Well, I guess that the Hourlings, my writing group, and by extension, myself, have achieved a new badge of honor in the world of publishing. We’ve been pirated.
And, no, I’m not going to say where, or provide the URL. I refuse to give bad actors any free advertising.
Anyway, the Hourlings publishes a new anthology just about every year. The first three anthologies in the image above were found on a pirate site, where they could be downloaded for free. The books have since been taken down after a DMCA complaint was filed.
You know you’ve arrived when pirates find it worthwhile to steal your work.
