A New Year's Proposal, Congrats Kat!!! Yasmine Galenorn books meet Dutch Harbor/Unalaska, And A way to Crush Literary Piracy!!

Well it FINALLY HAPPENED!!!
Todd Proposed to Katherine on New Year's Eve!!
Read more over at http://capesarichefsalon.blogspot.com/ . Stop by and Congragulate her!!


So Northwestern Fans, Did you know you have among your ranks a famous Writer?
http://yasmine-galenorn.blogspot.com/


I have been reading her novels for a few years now. If you have not, head to your favorite bookstore or to Barnes and Nobles Online where CB orders from. http://search.barnesandnoble.com/BookSearch/results.asp?TTL=&ATH=yasmine+galenorn&WRD=&PRU=ALL&FMT=ALL&PDF=Y&grade=ALL&CID=ALL&z=y&SearchBooks.x=0&SearchBooks.y=0

If you like Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance Yasmine will soon turn into one of your favorite authors. Have I ever steered you guys wrong yet?
If you follow me on Twitter they you might have noticed in the past day or so Yasmine Galenorm http://twitter.com/yasminegalenorn and Laurell K Hamilton http://blog.laurellkhamilton.org/index.php/site/index/ talking alot about literary piracy.

Just as the Authors have Contracts with their Publishers , wherein responsibilities and duties are outlined, we the Readers also have a "Contract" with the Authors. We have Certain Responsibilities to our authors. These Responsibilities include Always buying the book, NEVER DOWNLOADING IT FOR FREE!!! That is as much of a theft as if you went up and took a painters Painting or a Hip Hop Song from the singer. It is just like stealing a movie, shoplifiting, Or taking the Last Can of Mountain Dew without putting another case in the fridge to cool Down. (Ok, that Last one is a CB Hot Button, probably not that much of an issue for others)
If You can not afford the Book, Go to the library.
We also have to spread the message to our fellow readers that this is not an acceptable practice.
Finally, in order to really Help out we need to get more readers to our authors. Tell a Friend! Heck, Tell 9.................
.....Katherine from City Council and the Salon..........
...Hilda from the Front Desk of the Hotel...........
.......Adrian our bookeeper who got to reading a particular racy passage..........
.....The Fabulous Ms Veda still recovering from her cold..........
........Laura the Safeway Bakery Manager...........
.......Jess at the Airport.................
.....Sherri from FCA (Who Swears she has not been in my blog yet but I know she has somewhere. Everyone help me look!!)..........

.....and Finally Our Breakfast waitresses!!

Have a favorite Author Or Book? Tell a Friend. Lets make sure we can enjoy our favorite authors for years to come. Remember, Only YOU can stop Literary Piracy!!

CB I don't recall seeing Sherry in your blog but I could be wrong...you are definately right about stealing books....I will have to introduce my daughter to Yasmine definately her genre.....

Thank you for the reminder CB. I'm not sure yet how to "download" a book, except on Audible, which I always pay for, but I imagine people have figured out how to do it for free. As a House Concert presenter, I fully believe that artists (either musicians or writers) work very hard at developing their art and deserve to be well paid for their job skills. If we hope to enjoy wonderful art in the future, we will work hard to ensure that the artists can make a good living at their vocation.

Thank you so much for your very creative pictures and your writing.

Lori said...

OK, so I don't understand - famous writer? Is she a NW fan or maybe she blogs on the NW website? I think I've been gone too long from here -LOL! As far a literary piracy - just the same as music piracy. These artists work hard for their talents and $$ - and downloading on the internet is just down right wrong! My daughter often wonders why I still buy CD's but then she listens to them and understands why I buy them - not just to "purchase" the one hit that is currently out there. Support your favorite artists!

What a fun surprise to be scrolling through and up pops cousin Sherrie...have to say, don't recall seeing her on here before...but I know she "hides" alot. >;-)
Thank you for the recommendations in literature...if I ever get through the stack of books at my bedside, I'll revisit your suggestions!!
Take care!

It was extremely interesting for me to read that blog. Thanx for it. I like such themes and everything connected to this matter. I definitely want to read a bit more soon.

Great blog I love reading Yasmine Galenorn's books. I believe you should pay for things not pirate them. There is way too much piracy going on these days it is a shame.
