So in case you’ve been hiding from the internet, you might not know that a blogger got sued for using an image on her blog. Even though she immediately took it down when asked, even though she was unaware it was copyrighted. She still got sued.
As an author, of course I’m sensitive to the idea of copyright law, and stuff like that. But with Google Images, it’s so easy to find the perfect image to go along with the blog. I guess I figured that I don’t post my books so people can easily grab it online without paying for it, and so I figured photographers would do the same to protect their work.
So, if you wander through my older posts, you’ll notice that several of them don’t make sense any more, because the images are gone. It makes me sad, but what can I do? I don’t want a silly LOLcat to hurl me into a lawsuit that I can’t afford.
So from now on, my posts may look a little more “bland”.
Sucks, but I’m not willing to risk it anymore.
Wow, has it been an AWESOME couple of days!
First of all, INDELIBLY INTIMATE released on Thursday, and has been getting some pretty nice reviews! Check out Belle’s Book Blog and the 5-star review they gave! Click the logo below for the whole review.
Don’t have a copy yet? Swing by the Ellora’s Cave website and snag one!
THEN, I got an email from The Romance Reviews that DEAR ADDI has been chosen as a Top Pick!! Woohoo! Two five-star reviews in two days??? What the heck have I done lately??

So what can I do, I thought, to share with the wonderful universe? Repay a little of that great karma?
Why, ManCandy, of course.
Yes. You’re welcome.
I’m over at the beauteous Sidney Bristol’s blog today, telling the story of my first tattoo and giving away a copy of INDELIBLY INTIMATE!!
Come see me over there.
Okay, so I’ve been on vacation for the last seven days. With my husband and my parents. What a long, strange trip it’s been.
No, no, it was good, just really long. And I’m beat, because I had to do ALL. THE. DRIVING.
The mountains are frightening to some people.
So, the upshot is, I completely forgot I had an upcoming release. INDELIBLY INTIMATE came out yesterday. Woohoo!!!
And today is my birthday. I spent about four hours of it driving home.
So, while husband fetches me some takeout Chinese for my birthday dinner, who wants to win a free copy?
Leave me a haiku or a limerick below. I’ll leave this open until Monday at 8:00pm EST, and then my favorite will get a free ebook copy of INDELIBLY INTIMATE.
And come on guys, be creative. It IS my birthday.
