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.
