To assess just how much illegal downloading is hurting me personally, I went onto one of the websites mentioned in the Publishers Weekly article 4shared. I found over ninety files available, in a variety of languages, including the entire Jane Rizzoli series. The site tells you how many times the files have been downloaded, and at least 4, copies in English have been downloaded.
Charley Davidson is back! And she's drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the part-human, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hellbent on murder when the devil's son just won't give up?

It's a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.
After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure. Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn.
To save all of the worlds, they'll first need to stay alive. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Prince Rhy was wounded, and since the nefarious Dane twins of White London fell, and four months since the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift--back into Black London. Now, restless after having given up his smuggling habit, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks as she always meant to do.
As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games--an extravagant international competition of magic meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries--a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port. And while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life.
After all, a shadow that was gone in the night will reappear in the morning. But the balance of magic is ever perilous, and for one city to flourish, another London must fall.
The precarious equilibrium among four Londons has reached its breaking point. Once brimming with the red vivacity of magic, darkness casts a shadow over the Maresh Empire, leaving a space for another London to rise.
And in the wake of tragedy, can Arnes survive? Lila Bard, once a commonplace - but never common - thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry. And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay. Boa Hancock pinned post 2 Sep And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they find themselves with something that could be used to make the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: Expand text… Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to protect the boy no matter what the cost.
But who will protect them from a boy who is fire touched? In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which.
Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will.
Mercy's next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a bus for a vampire. Expand text… This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night.
And Mercy's connection to those things is about to get her into some serious hot water In return, the average law-abiding, solid citizen has little to worry about from the things that go bump in the night. Sometimes I wish I was an average citizen Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places-and in dark ones.
Alana Fairchild,Jimmy Manton: Isis Oracle
And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind. But this new vampire is hardly ordinary-and neither is the demon inside of him.
I curled my upper lip so she could get a good look at my sharp teeth. I might only weigh thirty or so pounds in my coyote shape, but I was a predator Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape - but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.
Mercy's loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can't decide between the two she cares for, Sam and Adam may make the choice for her By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shapeshifter with some unique talents, Mercy has often found herself having to maintain a tenuous harmony between the human and the not so human. This time she may get more than she bargained for. Marsilia, the local Vampire Queen, has learned that Mercy crossed her by slaying a member of her clan—and she's out for blood.
But since Mercy is protected from direct reprisal by the werewolf pack and her close relationship with its sexy Alpha , it won't be Mercy's blood Marsilia is after.
It'll be her friends'. But she is about to learn that while some secrets are dangerous whose who seek them are just plain deadly Mercy is smart enough to realize that when it comes to the magical fae, the less you know, the better. But you can't always get what you want. When she attempts to return a powerful fae she previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secrets - and the fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands.
And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side - leaving Mercy to cover for him lest his own father declare Samuel's life forfeit. All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she may not have many more And she's never known any others of her kind. Until now. As Mercy comes to terms with this new information, an evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River.
Something deadly is coming, facts are thin on the ground and Mercy feels ill at ease. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman - the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack - has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy's life.
But on the edges of humanity, a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can't reach Adam - or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They've all been abducted. Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. But she fears Adam's disappearance may be related to the political battle the werewolves have been fighting to gain acceptance from the public - and that he and the pack are in serious danger.
Outmatches and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely. Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

Nicole Elya Aug 31, at So does desire… Expand text… Ana Cordona has been a strong leader for the lupine shifters who survived after all the males and most of the females in her pack were mysteriously poisoned.
As tough as she is, with no Alpha male, the pack is vulnerable to the devious shifter Taggart, who wants to claim both their ranch and Ana as his own. The minute Connor sees Ana again, it reawakens a raw hunger. He must have her for his bondmate—his wolf cries out for it.
But his human side knows he must proceed with caution because of their complicated past. If he is to truly have her body and soul, he must go beyond his burning desire and win back her heart. Whatever it takes, he is determined not to leave her side again.
But Taggart and his rival pack are not their only enemies. A human element in town is targeting shifters. Liam knows the human beauty is his intended mate the moment he sees her, but December is far too strong-willed to accept his protection. December, whose brother is the town sheriff, has every reason to mistrust shifters after one killed her youngest sibling. When a radical hate group targets all humans known to sympathize with paranormal beings, December is attacked in her bookstore.
Reluctantly, she turns to the only one who can help her: And he is going to take her to places within herself she never knew existed. Surviving for centuries, powerful lupine shifter Jayce Kazan managed to stay away from humans until he met Kat Saburova and was consumed by the need to protect her. But while Jayce shared his passion with the human seer, he refused to make her his bondmate—a refusal that caused the end of their relationship.
A year later, an attack that left Kat near death has resulted in another lupine shifter turning her. And as Jayce struggles to protect Kat from her own worst instincts and convince her to rekindle their love, the extremists who almost killed her are looking to finish the job… Avenger's Heat 4 To truly have her, he must free her from her dark secret… Enforcer Erin Flynn has dedicated her life to protecting her kind.
But keeping her heart safe from Noah Campbell, the smoking-hot shifter who saved her life last year, is more difficult.
When Erin is sent to investigate the disappearances of pregnant shifters in New Orleans, Erin and Noah find themselves involved in a mystery more sinister than anyone expected. And as Erin delves further into the crimes, chilling information about her own past is revealed.
Regarding digital promotion, I guess the industry has to get more inventive. The internet is here. Rikke, authorized e-book sales allow sharing the file with a total of five users, so you can indeed share your file with a limited number of friends and family. The problem with piracy is that one person buys the e-book or copies it illegally and can give it away to potentially limitless numbers of people.
When your product is handed out free to millions, there is no way for the publisher to stay in business.
Or the author, for that matter. That said, I did get The Surgeon as a stripped book. I actually rebought the book later and most of the subsequent books. I think music is also different from books. Playing live is an option, merchandising, and live recordings or DVDs. Books are a different animal. I believe technology will be eventually part of the options and become commonplace. Interesting times we live in. Technology is a two-way street because with technology comes marketing that was never possible a little over a decade ago.
Case in point: Your book, The Surgeon, is currently being offered for free download by Scribd, http: Scribd will remove pirated books if requested. There are relatively few people who read enough titles per year to warrant owning an electronic reading device. People who love books do need the experience of having an actual book in their hands, open up the world that enfolds between the front and the back cover.
Or if I only want 2 songs from a CD or 2 stories from an anthology. If the owner offers free samples, go for it. Lots do. But if you take something that is NOT offered, you are stealing. That the technology exists to make theft easy does not make it right. It also helps authors if the libraries have a high demand for their titles when they are deciding how many copies to purchase when a new book is released. I understand how the figures might seem shocking, but the fact is that you are a well known author, making a living off your writing.
I wonder how easy it would be to download the work of lesser-known writers? Sarah Weinman tweeted last week: I understand the anxiety over free downloads. Writers have to look at how they can sell their product and make a living. At the same time Congress and other governments have made a hash of the Constitution regarding copyrights.
Do you really need your copyright for 70 years after your death? None of that excuses piracy, but we need to look at how writers and artists are going to make a living in a world not ruled by monopolistic movie studios, record studios, and publishers. Truly effective anti-online-piracy measures may end up backfiring by scaring off legitimate customers.
The New York Times experiment in charging for their online content will probably not help their bottom line much, just result in reduced market share. It will be worth watching. At the same time the NY Times is extraordinarily unfair to its freelancers. I agree with EC, its stealing and is wrong. I love to sit on my bed or a nice comfy spot in my home while reading a book from one of my favorite authors.
I only hope that my fav writters find a way to even want to keep publishing…. It steals from everyone. In fact, since one of the biggest challenges for new authors is publicity, the spreading knowledge of their book is a good thing.
Many writers give away a lot of their writing to make enough of a name for themselves that they can sell something. I am in no way trying to say that piracy is right or that people should be happy about any sales they might lose.
The flaw in your economic argument, though, becomes clear when we consider the library. If every single library in the country had all your books, prominently displayed on the front counter, free to borrow, free to share… would that help or hinder your sales?
Even better than being on Oprah. The difference is that libraries actually did pay for the book in their collection — and each copy can only be loaned out one at a time, with the book having a limited lifespan because of the durability of paper.
But ebooks on pirated sites are available to a limitless audience. One pirate can hand out the book to a million readers, forever. In tiny Rhode Island, there are often 40 or 50 copies of a popular title. Within days, it had been downloaded for free , times. And unlike pirated downloads, library loans DO inspire people to purchase books.
I frequently take books out of the library as a means of trying new writers. And from time to time I hear from people who now read and purchase MY books after having picked up one in a library. For the publisher, closer to a million. They could publish quite a few midlist or new authors for that kind of change. I find a lot of this bewildering. In fact, a lot of the paperback crime novels I processed were second-hand, already bought and read by half a dozen people before they got to the library.
Then checked out maybe fifty to a hundred times, and then withdrawn and sold again at the library book sale or a charity shop, to be read further. All that reading and it was purchased just the once. His books were heavily pirated because they were already heavily popular. In any case, thanks for bringing the subject to light, Tess.
When we took my son to college orientation, the dean asked how many people downloaded music and video from shareware sites such as he named a couple of popular ones. Just about every hand in the room went up. He explained that the colleger server was heavily firewalled against such sites and warned the kids that that illegal downloads would be punished with suspension. Two things struck me: You seem to be assuming that people who download bestsellers will purchase other books.
But if the cultural norm is shifting toward an expectation is that any created work you want should be free for the taking, why should any distinction be made between bestselling books and new authors?
The consumer who sees no difference between checking a book out of the library and downloading it from a shareware site is not thinking beyond his use of that book.
I love that everyone here is sharing their opinions. And I think you underestimate the necessity of a book to a poor person. I can tell you, from experience, that it is somewhat less miserable to starve when one has a book for company. A book can also be a welcome distraction when sleeping in the car, or on a park bench. Sometimes, if given the choice between soup and a book, I would have to deliberate over which of my organs has been the most deficient in nutrition before I could choose.
Her best bet is to look at the mass market paperbacks, which sometimes drift closer to her budget. But oh, those new releases — that one, the long-anticipated release from her favourite author!
Aaaargh. Pirates! - Tess Gerritsen
Eventually, while the in-store cafe makes her hungry, she finds a paperback she might like to own. To a lot of people this is a pittance.
That book, that little window of escape, shrinks in her hand. In the end though, she puts the book back. But the importance of leaving it behind as she exits the bookstore stays with her for a while afterward.
This is not a thief. This is not a spoiled brat, or an ignorant teenager, or any other stereotype of an online pirate.
But I can certainly understand why some people do. Books are, like every other form of entertainment, but perhaps more tragically so — prohibitively expensive for a lot of people. My neighborhood library is where I learned to love books as a child, and where I discovered so many fictional friends. I have donated paperback copies of my books to several homeless shelters around the country, because I agree with you that books are food for the soul. And I wish there were a public library accessible to every person in the country.
I also write in probably the hottest e-book industry: It is also very much a part of this business. My point is that in the beginning, when I first realized there were people out there, in the wide open internet, who were passing around copies of my books FOR FREE — or worse charging people to get copies sure, for pennies on the dollar, but… I was absolutely devastated.
So, I started tracking sellers down, filing complaints, et al. Out of that came things like DRM which can be cracked in about a microsecond, a lot of good that did and limits on legitimate e-copies. Great ideas, which in my mind, have failed epically. When complaining and badgering and yelling became a full time job, instead of writing and raising my children, I knew I had to pair down all the searching, etc I was doing to find sites that had pirated copies of my work.
So, I started to really focus on the people doing the uploading, especially if I found them on more than one pirate site. And I sent them letters with notice of copyright infringement, etc, etc. Of those who did, some asked what the big deal was, some told be to blow off for lack of a cleaner euphemism to use, LOL. I asked the ones who seemed less likely to send me a hard-drive-wiping virus why they were sharing my book. Most of these people had no clue who I was.
