TRIPLE THREAT is now available on Amazon!

The heading says it all.  I have finally finished TRIPLE THREAT, the final book in The MaCall Prophecy Trilogy.  Check it out!

It's nearly official.  I am on the final revision of Triple Threat.  I expect to release it on Tuesday, November 19, which will make it available for purchase on Wednesday, November 20.  (I'm currently doing my victory dance.)

This is officially the conclusion of The MaCall Prophecy Trilogy.  

And as much fun as it has been, I'm eager to work on my next project.  I'm delving back into the world of historical romance and will be playing there for a while.  I did enjoy the paranormal, though, and will definitely re-visit it in the future.

Raging...Not Sleeping

I should be asleep right about now, preparing to start my week at my day job.  But on a whim, I decided to do a Google search of one of my book titles.  I wanted to see if anyone had blogged about it or reviewed it on their websites.  I got a bit more than I bargained for.

I found that a person published my entire novel online.  For those who are wondering, yes, this is a copyright infringement.  Simply put, it's theft.

Oddly enough, she listed her own name as the "publisher" on the website but then posted the entire file, including the cover with my name and the copyright page with my name.  So she doesn't seem interested in taking credit for my work.  She apparently just wanted to put it out there for anyone who might be interested in reading it for free.  Illegally.

So I had to file a complaint.

Because that is EXACTLY what I want to do late on a Sunday evening.

I would like to take a moment now to string together a series of my favorite profane phrases, but I've been trying really hard to stay positive throughout this process.  (I chuckle while I read bad reviews over my MiniWheats.  I'm particularly fond of the ones where the reviewer admits that he/she didn't read the book.)  But this makes me seriously furious.  Those of us who are indie authors are genuinely trying to make some money doing something we love.  So for someone to simply undercut us by stealing our work is either a huge and grave oversight or simply super shitty.  See, now I've begun with the profanity.

I must go do some deep breathing exercises so that I can actually get to sleep.  With any luck, the stolen novel will disappear from public domain in the next day or two.  Grr!
