An Update on the Book Situation

Back in February, readers on Archive Of Our Own let me know that two different people had plagiarized Fidele. They published it on Amazon KDP under their own names, and in one instance another (terrible) title. I reported the plagiarism and the books were quickly removed, but it still left me upset and doubting my future as a writer.

I removed Fidele from the site and locked it to registered users only on AO3, and removed the free downloads of my previously-published books. I had high hopes for this experiment, but it never really panned out the way I hoped. The plagiarism only added my feeling of failure.

I had a good long think about what I wanted to do. I’ve always been a storyteller, I knew I wanted to be a writer when I was in elementary school, but no step along the way has been smooth or easy. I’d had plans for Fidele, but after the plagiarism incident it seemed to me I’d need to take drastic measures, and soon.

I looked at various publishing partners for indie writers, and decided to go with Draft2Digital, for its variety of retailers and ease of use. I’ve listed Ebony Angel and Aubade with them so far, and I’m pleased with the results.

I’m currently doing one final rewrite/reformat edit on Fidele. Watch this space for updates. More of my previously published books will also be available by year’s end.
