On Pirating Fiction

I'm working on a number of short projects right now; the next story in the alphabet series of anthologies, an ebook and audio release of "Grandmother Mælkevejen's Belly", a second edition of The Ruin of Beltany Ring and a possible science fiction and fantasy collection in the spring. I'm still a small player in the writing community, but it occurs to me that some of these short projects and the bigger projects that follow might find themselves on free download sites in the months to come.

That's okay.

There are a ton of reasons why people download free fiction, and it doesn't matter to me which reason motivates someone to download my work. It matters to me that it found a home. That's why I write the stuff to begin with. So download it, fill up your hard drive, your e-reader and your iPod. Give it a spin and see if it sticks. And if at some point you feel inclined and have the financial means to do so, buy me a cuppa for my trouble. I've put a donation box right on the home page of my web site.

Happy reading, everybody!
