Becasue Leon was my favorite character in this book series; and I was so excited to read from him. Because it deals with what happens after Leon got tortured.
And it is horribl Tortured is a short story set after Birthmarked but before Prized. And it is horrible.
And so sad. But I also loved it, becasue it is real. And I loved Leon's thoughts. I wish to know what really happened to his finger, though. So a bit sad we didn't get to know that. But maybe in the third book; Promised. I need Leon to talk about it. There isn't really much to review in this short story. We get to see Myrna a little. I liked her. She is a great character. Hoping we'll see more of her too. She helps Leon a lot in this book.
I also liked Cho. He seemed sweet. And then there is Leon's step mother. Not sure how I feel about her. Hate her for not doing enough about everything happening with Leon.
But I also sort of liked her. This is an awesome short story; even though it is really short and mostly sad. You make some great points in this article. They are frail, pallid imitations that convey none of the immediacy of the real thing. I have a copy of Prized from a local library right in front of me, and I think that reading it using a computer would be far less enjoyable experience than reading it from the book.
Illicit copying does not deprive the rights-holder of the material itself; rather, it deprives him of revenue. But still, that is merely an issue of semantics. I am with you in spirit, if not in words. Really who is stealing from you? Sounds more like your publisher is exploiting your energy and skills. I love your books and payed full price for them in site — for my Kindle.
I am a big believer in people getting what they deserve, however. I know that God is just and in the end you will be blessed for being honest and they will not.
Thanks so much for writing! I have them both waiting on my Kindle.
Any suggestions? You are an amazing author! I love love love real books. I live in a small town and my library isnt very good at getting books when they are new. Whats sad is that now that borders is gone there is no book store closer then an hour away except for mom and pop places that arent open on the hours that I can make it to them.
I own plus books in paper back. I also own 2 different readers and tons of e-books. I know how easy it is for people to steal books. I think its rude and wrong for people to do it. I think about it like this. If I want to keep reading books by my favorite authors then I best keep downloading them or they are going to have to do another job and not have time to write anymore.
I HATE waiting for things to come in the mail. Im the kind of person that can read a page book in a day and most the time have done it the day I got the book.
I guess thats why borders made me a gold member lol. Caragh I just bought your book and Im super excited to read it!!! I happened to have just gotten done reading Birth marked for the 4th time.
A book is definitely a team effort, so I am absolutely okay with receiving a smaller percentage than my publisher for our books, considering my publisher pays for editing, copyediting, proofreading, cover design, production costs, printing costs, marketing, and distribution.
Incidentally, I actually earn a larger percentage on e-books than traditional ones because there are no paper costs involved, and e-books are a vital option for the visually impaired. We writers and our publishers deserve to be paid fairly, so I appreciate your empathy and your support in denouncing the book pirates. I downloaded your books. Which is it? Attempting to guilt those of us who downloaded your book because we legitimately could not afford it and would never have read it any other way is shameless.
Borrowing the book from a friend and downloading the book leave you with exactly the same thing, nothing. So how can you suggest one but condemn the other? I was a huge fan.
I had your books on my Christmas wish lists because downloading your books initially does not mean I never would have bought them one way or another. It simply means that I do not have the cash to waste downloading books that I may or may not care for. When I download a book that I come to love as I have all of your novels, I do eventually download it one way or another. But I assure you now I will never download anything from you.
For that reason, I truly pity you. ONE year? Who do you think you?
