Remembering to breathe – more on the journey

Okay for the first time in all the testing we have something besides a normal result unfortunately, it’s a blood test for the antigens produced by some tumours like the ones in pancreatic cancer. It’s not high enough to be a red flag with buzzers and horn alarms but it isn’t normal. The doctor wants to do that one in another 3 months. ( 3 months sounds better than 90 days) I’m still waiting for the results from the arts and crafts project I had to do at work. I hate the waiting.

My doctor says since it isn’t wildly high I shouldn’t worry and he’ll do the test again in 90 days. Meanwhile I’m telling myself to breathe.

Warning! Book Thief – Make Sure Someone Else isn’t Profiting off Your Book

Do not trust this site:

http://www.urbookdownload.com One of my author clients just informed me that her book was illegally downloaded by this online company. If you have a book in the marketplace make sure these guys aren’t taking your hard-earned money! If they are, go immediately to your writer’s union/guild/club (e.g. SFWA, RWA, etc.) and they will help you fight this! If you have DRM (Digital Rights Management) then get it working for you. MJ

I have been hearing from a LOT recently that more SCAM BOOK SITES are appearing online in ever increasing numbers…

What can YOU do about it?

If you are an author and YOUR book(s) are being offered without your permission – issue DMCA Notices (SEE BELOW FIRST)

If you are a readerPLEASE DO NOT USE THESE SITES!

It may be tempting to get books FOR FREE or at greatly reduced prices but…

They may be a click farm looking for your email

and you will be infected with a virus.

*****

AUTHORS – VERY IMPORTANT!!!

DO NOT SEND THE OFFENDING SITE A DIRECT NOTICE.

If they are on Facebook – Use Facebook’s reporting form to remove their link source from Facebook’s server.

My attorney warns me not to click on them, but to send a form letter to their server.

You can find out their server here:
