Slight success

Firstly, thank you to everyone for your kind and supportive messages you have been sending me. It's reassuring that there are such sweet people in the world - because heck knows I do wonder these days. But the messages I've received have really bucked me up, so I really can't express how grateful I am. And saying 'bucked up' reminds me of a quote from the Terry Pratchett book, Guards, Guards, which always makes me smile: “They felt, in fact, tremendously bucked-up... which was definitely several letters of the alphabet away from how they normally felt.”

I hadn't planned on sending out a new message quite so soon after the last, but I've had some success in that the stories that @cherrybirdie was plagiarising on have all been removed, and the account that person was using deleted.

I'd like to say removed them, but no, they haven't done anything - the person who has been stealing them deleted their account after I posted a message on the site stating the stories were stolen. Though, if you do google the name @cherrybirdie you can actually still see some of the book covers the person had been using for my work - there are pictures of A Bite Before Dying and The Bear and the Unicorn on Google. Seriously - they created their own book covers for my work!

I don't hold out much hope of taking any action against this person, as all you have to do is give an e-mail when you sign up. Though, I will be submitting a complaint, asking them to apologize and to explain how they are going to make sure this doesn't happen again.

Take care
