Pirating the Wrong Dude

If you don't already know this, David Gaughran is a sweet, generous guy and a terrific author. If you love historical fiction, go read his A Storm Hits Valpraiso. If you're new to indie publishing, I highly recommend his Let's Get Digital and Let's Get Visible.

Recently, some huckster decided pirating a portion of the latter book was a good idea. David's the guy who is pretty much single-handedly taking on scam/vanity-publisher Author Solutions, which was recently sold by Penguin Random House. So he's not the type to roll over when some joker uses his words to phish innocent writers.

Go read what happened to David and the (sometimes hilarious, sometimes head-smacking) fall-out. And stay far, FAR away from IndieWriterSupport!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again--if you're going to cross a line, make sure you know who you're pissing off and be prepared for the consequences.
