Force Majeure

"Force Majeure" is another of my eBook short stories sold to bring in money to fight plagiarism anywhere, anytime by publishers who sell our work without authorization.  It's the story of a new technology gone very, very bad...

My short story "Haints" is now available through Kindle.  As with "Electrocuting the Clowns,"  all proceeds will go towards getting acts of plagiarizing for profit to be treated as Consumer Fraud.

Electrocuting the Clowns- The Boyer Free Edition

Yes, it's the David Boyer-Free Edition.  All proceeds from sales of this eBook Boyer-Free edition will go toward fighting plagiarizing publishers.

"Electrocuting the Clowns" was the story Boyer plagiarized from me and then had nominated for a Stoker Award- even though he'd stolen the story!  But we're making progress in the fight.

Not only has the Horror Writers Association written to Deputy Attorney General Tom Irons to prosecute Boyer under Consumer Fraud Laws and the National Writers Union spearheaded this weekend a new letter writing campaign to the Indiana Attorney General's Office, Consumer Fraud Division, but Brian Keene has brought this matter to the attention of thousands of writers who have then been contacting the Indiana AG.

So in the meantime I've begun publishing "Boyer-Free" editions of my short stories on Kindle to help  collect money to continue the fight against plagiarizing publishers.  Every dime goes to pay the lawyers and researchers who are helping us fight these creeps.

Consider buying these stories a donation to fight literary cancer.

Is Amazon Guilty of Consumer Fraud?

MySpace Tracker

I like Amazon.  Love them, in fact.  But can someone tell me their corporate address in case Consumer Fraud Charges need to be filed against them?

We know they're the world's largest lovable book store.  Great prices.  Great inventory.  But guess what?  Now they're a publisher, too.

They publish books.

Many fine authors publish via Amazon.

Guess who else they publish? 

David Boyer, the sleazy plagiarist operating out of Vincennes, IN.

So if you're a writer, and David Boyer under one of his many aliases steals your stuff and publishes it for profit through Amazon, is Amazon guilty, too?  They know he's a plagiarist and have yanked some of his plagiarized works off their internet shelves.  But when he sends them a book like "Shadow Dolls" or "Mystery Indiana," they publish them without checking to see if they're plagarized.

So I ask you, if they know he's a plagiarist because they've had to take down some of his books, and they publish his new books without checking to see if they're plagiarized, are they now accomplices?

If they don't take a stand against David Boyer the Vincennes, IN plagiarist, is it because they don't mind making money off of stolen works?

Does this make them guilty of Consumer Fraud?
