Bonds of Earth in Italian!

Apr. 6th, 2016 | 09:24 am

For those of you who speak Italian (or those who want to learn!), Bonds of Earth has been translated into Italian and will be published by Triskell Edizioni on April 25! Here's a sneak peek at the beautiful cover:

In other news, I haven't disappeared! Writing has been a bit slow lately, but I'm hoping 2016 is going to be an inspiring year. :) Thanks again to all who've supported Bonds of Earth along the way!

A note to fellow authors

Dec. 7th, 2012 | 01:14 pm

If you are an LGBT author, this post may be of interest to you: the LiveJournal user maia_hie is illegally distributing books from various authors and publishers. I had previously reported this person on a prior platform because Bonds of Earth was one of the books hosted on the site. That does not seem to be the case here, but I have responded to them here just the same. Zie is also distributing books through a locked site here; I have no idea if Bonds of Earth is one of the books that have been made available.

On the subject of illegal downloads in general: basically, my opinion is that there's not much that can be done about them. When electronic material is so easy to get and pass around, it's going to be passed around. Do illegal downloads affect sales of my book? I'm sure they do. If I was in this for the money, though, I wouldn't be doing it. The money is not the issue. However, the increased recognition of LGBT-themed books is something I feel strongly about, and I can't help but feel saddened and angry when a person who clearly enjoys these books feels that distributing them illegally is okay. Guess what? When you do this, you hurt sales of these books you profess to enjoy. That hurts the (mostly) small presses who take a chance on publishing them, and in the long run, that means fewer LGBT books for you and your friends to enjoy. It's a lose-lose situation.

The only thing I can ask is that if you enjoy LGBT books and are planning to distribute them illegally, please think twice. And if you receive a book from a friend or through a download, please consider buying a copy legally. It's the only way we're going to see LGBT fiction get the recognition and respect it deserves.
