Holidays: Gifts of eBooks and Stealing!
Today is a PSA as posted by Author C.M. Johnson. I could have written something similar, but when someone says it perfectly, why try to improve it?
"With the Holiday season starting, I'm sure the number of giveaways will be increasing - and so will the instances of piracy.
Gifted books - Free ebooks used as prizes, SHOULD come to you from Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, or other well known companies.
IF a BLOG or BLOGGER is offering to send you an ARC (advanced reader copy), Epub, Mobi, or other 'converted' file, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE question them or message the author directly. No one but the author or their PA (personal assistant) should have access to files like that and it's a HUGE red flag.
And, while an author may sometimes use ARCs as prizes, advance copies are not to be shared, they are given to blogs/bloggers to read and prepare reviews ahead of the release - not to be passed on as prizes. This is not helpful to us - it's stealing." —C.M. Johnson
