How do you feel when you find out a site has pirated your book and is providing free copies to those who frequent their page?
I used to tell other authors that I never minded this happening because I was also giving away thousands of free books myself. It was a way to get new readers and a promotional device most of us used from time to time. Therefore, these people were just helping me spread the word about my work.
There were many who didn’t agree with me on this principle – that the most important tool an author has is exposure. In fact, many were downright fierce about protecting their rights, their income, and I believe, resenting that they were being cheated.
So I kept my thoughts to myself when they complained on the loops and stayed out of the arguments.
Then I read this post by Tim Grahl. It explained exactly what I had tried to share, but much better than I ever could. So take a moment and read his explanation. It might make more sense to you put in this way.
I will add one last thought. I have had notices from Amazon that they found my work, which supposed to be exclusive to Select, elsewhere on the internet. When this did happen, it was annoying and worrying. Both times, I was able to write to the pirating website, asking them to take down my work and then send the copy of my words to Amazon. It seemed to be all they needed, and I heard no more. Truthfully, I suspect that Amazon is aware of these pirating places and realizes, that in some cases, there is no way for an author to know about them or to contact the people. It made me worry less when I realized this.

***My book, Big Girls Don’t Cry, is one that I truly enjoyed writing. I guess I sympathise with my heroine, Remi, and her battle to get in shape, to lose those extra pounds most of us carry. But heck – who would suspect that it would backfire on her once she looks beautiful??
Big Girls Don’t Cry – Because no one is listening!
Remi Calder is a slightly chubby but satisfied woman who believes she has everything she desires—until she sees Eadan Fleming for the first time. The fact that he hires her to redecorate his apartment presents many opportunities for her to spend time with the man, and she’s in heaven. Wanting to make herself more attractive in order to catch his eye, she decides she needs to change her appearance. Pairing up with a neighbouring teen who’s in the pits of despair from her bullying peers, they share their struggles to lose the excess weight that makes them both so unhappy. After all her efforts, will he notice?
Eadan Fleming is taken with the gentle genius and gorgeous spirit of his new designer. He’s looking forward to spending time with a woman who cares more about sharing a wonderful meal with her escort than worrying about her thin shape. Deciding that the stunning beauties he’s spent his last few years trying to understand are a thing in the past, he happily makes the choice that his next woman will be nicely rounded—and Remi Calder fits his dream woman perfectly.
