Wednesday Wandering - Piracy

I attended a retreat this past weekend and got a lot of work done. Kevin J. Anderson (of Star Wars, Dune, etc. fame) was the author in residence. 

Kevin mentioned how sales impact whether a series will ever be finished.

That made me think of a discussion in a Facebook group where they were getting hold of ARCs that they then sold. 

It, in turn, reminded me of this article by Maggie Stiefvater about a test she did with fake ARCs to show how piracy impacted her sales. 

I'd heard that piracy doesn't really hurt us. This kind of blew my mind. It's compelling and freaking scary. 

If you haven't read this yet, you'll want to.

IWSG - November 2017

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Last weekend I wrote THE END on the first draft of Against the Magic, my Victorian time travel book. Today, I'm starting NaNo and I'm writing the book that will be part of the Destination Love series. I needed these reminders:

Are you doing NaNo?
