I missed my chance to wish you all a Merry Christmas, although I was certainly thinking of my entire circle of family, friends, and followers in wishing everyone a blessed and peaceful Christmas Day. So, here I am to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! May it be our best ever.
I had to share this, it was so cute.
In the store today there was a young woman and her kids standing behind me, the in-house radio station began playing “Jingle Bell Rock“. The little girl blurts out in an almost panicked voice, “Jingle Bell! MOM! Who’s Jingle? I thought her name was Tinker!”
May all your Christmas Season discoveries be this innocent. 🙂
I heard from Kristen Hope Mazzola, author of Crashing Back Down that her novel, and dozens of other books, also written by indie authors are available on a piracy site. Folks, this is a crime! The creators of these works do not get paid from these sales. It is a copyright infringement to use anyone’s material for commercial gain if you have no rights to do so.
It is very sad to see that these unscrupulous persons are alive and well in cyberspace. Please do not purchase books, or anything else for that matter unless you are sure that the site offering these goods is authorized to handle the product. It is generally best to order from the author’s site or somewhere such as amazon.com.
If you are an indie author, do a search for your book to see if it appears anywhere other than where you posted it for sale. One author reportedly found her novel on 20 different sites. Don’t let common thieves ruin the holidays for these hard-working authors!
