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.

Oh, I see how busy you have become and for such a great cause for writers. I applaud you, Rick -

*clap clap clap clap clap* - even if you aren't asking for applause one speck.

Thanks, Charles!

Sometime early next year we'll see the results, Kathryn.

If we're successful, it means writers across the country can follow this method and deal a blow to plagiarizing publishers without having to go bankrupt trying to protect their works!
