All this week at Writers Evolution we are talking about a topic that is near and dear to all of us. Piracy - not the sword-swinging-rescuing-distressed-damsel kind but the act of illegally downloading books kind.
Downloading a book for free instead of paying the $3 or $4 the book is STEALING! Just as walking into Barnes and Noble and steal a book is wrong, so is this.
Authors work hard to create stories that people enjoy, but the fact remains, you expect to get paid at your job, we expect to get paid too. This is our job.
