10 - Book 3 is finally out!

Originally posted by atemu_girl at 10 - Book 3 is finally out!
There's no way of telling just where the dice will fall. Neverfound, $0.99 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008N6VU7A


As you can tell from the above tagline, book 3 of Seven Masks, Neverfound, is now out, and only $0.99 in the Kindle store, or FREE to borrow if you're an Amazon Prime member.

Neverfound details the ongoing struggle to find the origins of Mahaj Prime so she can finally be shut down. But with the Empire hot on their heels, the rebels are facing a race against time. But as they get closer and closer to discovering the origins of the aged mother computer, they soon find out that things might not be as they seem.

Happy reading, and please, feel free to spread the word!

Please repost this? I have never begged for one of my posts to be boosted. I am just so worried for my friends and want you to know.

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox news confirms this:

Edit: I'm also going to add that PeerBlock might be another program to look into. You can download it here.

That’s right! To celebrate Neverblood’s release, it’s going to be free for the next 5 days, from the 21st to the 25th of THIS month only! So if you’re in the market for a sequel with plenty of action (and a little bit of danger on the side), go grab yourself a copy right here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006ZSVAM8 And let your friends know!

7 - It's here, it's here!

Neverblood, book 2 of Seven Masks, is now LIVE on Kindle for just $0.99! If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can read it right now for free. Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006ZSVAM8 *so excited*

I’ve decided to make Neverend just $0.99 from now on, at which price it’s going to stay. Why? Because a lot of other authors are marketing their ebooks at 99c, and it doesn’t appear to have done them much harm. And ever since the free promo I ran a few days ago, I feel more confident I can finally break into the paid market! Neverend’s rank has certainly improved since the promo: #85,635 Paid in Kindle Store, which is a hell of a lot better than the 500k ranking it had after the promo finished! So, I’ve dropped the price, and that’s where it’s going to stay, ALL the time :D You can get on it right here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EAZFXI And please, spread the word! The more, the merrier!

5 - Itsy bitsy teeny reminder!

Just a quick reminder for you lovely people: Neverend is FREE for download ($0!) until the 15th (12am Pacific Standard Time), after which it will revert to its FULL price. You can pick up a free download right on over at this little link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EAZFXI And if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow Neverend through the Kindle Owners Lending Library at any time, and it won't cost you a cent! BUT, the $0 price only lasts for two more days, so get on it while you can! (and maybe spread the word? *kitten eyes*) Many thanks, and enjoy the read!

SOPA needs to be stopped before it gets passed. YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr are the main sites which will be shut down if this law is passed. And the entire WORLD is going to suffer! I'm doing my part by posting this so everyone can see it. Please do the same, and make sure as many people as possible see this so they can get SOPA stopped. Thank you in advance!

86 - SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

Originally posted by darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)


Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.


This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.


It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

I saw this over at aztec's journal, so I figured I'd do my bit as well. Here's my offer here. Please spread this around, and check the comm out at qldfloodauction. I think this is a really good way to get some money raised, not to mention that it's something close to my own heart, being Aussie (and Victoria, where I live, is facing its own series of floods, including a possibility of the Maribyrnong River breaking its banks!).

Pimp, spread, and get more people in on this. Anything at all will be welcomed, be it fanfiction, handmade goods, the like :)

Edit: Fixed. Apparently I accidentally linked to aztec's offer instead of mine. Hopefully it should be fixed now @_@
