Voting

Tanya is right ON!

Roseylinns Reflections

When it comes to the mid-term elections, since the 1840’s, voter turn out is usually low.  The mid-terms seem to lack the pizzazz of a presidential election year.  Voting however is very important to any democracy regardless of what offices, and measures, are on the ballot.  It is the way the voice of the people gets heard.  Don’t like a proposed legislation? Then vote against it.  Like a certain candidate? Then vote for that person.  Want to complain about how a measure could have not passed? Then vote.  Want to brag about how a candidate got elected?  Then vote.  The key word being; vote.

In Oregon and Washington there is really no reason not to vote.  Those are the only two states in the US that are 100% vote by mail.  Ballots have already been mailed to residents in those states.  Even if you are waiting to fill in the ballot…

Book Piracy is EVIL

Pirates Traditional

I have a VERY SERIOUS concern to share and ask for your help with.

There is a website STEALING from at least 15 (confirmed) of my favorite authors. Romance, Mystery, Science Fiction, Fantasy, no genre seems immune. Big authors and little, well established and independent… it is HORRID.

That is right. STEALING. I am talking PIRACY people.

They are stealing intellectual property, income, and devaluing the hard work these authors put in to entertain us.

DISGUSTING.

How?
They are selling books without an author’s permission or knowledge.

So far I know for sure (confirmed via author) that more than15 of MY authors are definitely being cheated along with dozens more that friends on other Street Teams have contacted. I am not done yet either…

So PLEASE… I want you to NOT buy from this site. (Hello – that would be SO WRONG)

I also request that you look up any authors that you are on a street team for or just plain love or respect… and if they are on this site; let them know too.

Send them a PM please. You do not know how some sheeple will react to a buy link… we do not need to make the problem worse by getting the pirates customers now do we?

This piracy is wrong, it is CRIMINAL, and it is mean. Let’s stop them!

If you care about your authors and their ability to AFFORD to continue to provide us with the quality and consistency of entertainment; don’t buy from PIRATES and do report them!

That’s my rant.
