Please don’t take the ideas in my books and adapt them for a Scandinavian porn magazine (without paying me as creative consultant).
Please don’t grab my books and make them walk the plank (neither print books nor e-books do well in the briny).
I am totally down with the idea that pirating can increase an author’s readership, so, if you must illegally download my books, I would like you to:
1) Go to one of the many official online sources of my books (links can be found at the TDA Bookstore) and write a review.
2) Give the link of the TDA Bookstore to your friends and advise them to buy the book (rather than linking them to the pirated copy).
3) Buy a copy of the book and donate it to a reading programme.
4) In general terms, I would like all readers who do access pirated books to commit to buying one book for every pirated book that they read. (I understand that many people download massive floods that may contain hundreds of books; personally I don’t think that they count until the book has been read.)
Whatever you do, READ and encourage other people to READ!
