    I Wrote A Book!

    I mentioned in my last blog post (which was back in December, omg!) that I have a couple of books being published this year! The first one came out on Monday!! It's called Inside Darkness and it's about a humanitarian aid worker struggling with PTSD and an Asian American journalist who encounters systemic racism. It's dark and gritty and angsty; the sex is fast but the emotions are slow burn (I stole that last part from a reviewer, hehe). It's hard to believe that I am officially a Published Author (TM). There was no party, no cake, no one handing me a big cheque. Just some nice people sending me congratulations messages on social media and a friend took me out to lunch. From the outside, being an author looks so glamorous, but at the end of the day it's a job just like any other: finish one project and move on to the next! Still, I'm super proud of myself for having chased after this dream and having accomplished it. I have another book coming out in July and a couple where I'm waiting to hear from the publisher, and still more waiting to be written on my laptop. Big thank you to everyone here who read my early stories and gave me such encouragement to keep going! I couldn't have done it without you! If you would like more information about my book, you can find it on my website: http://www.hudsonlin.com/book/inside-darkness/
  8. Update: the same person who was posting my stories on Wattpad is now posting Stepping Out in AO3... argh. Unfortunately, AO3's DMCA takedown process doesn't seem as streamlined as Wattpad, so it might be harder to get the story removed.

      I've reported them on AO3, and hopefully they'll take it down. Other than that... *shrug*

      I hope they are not trying to take credit for your work. If they are it may be possible to find a lawyer that would send something out probono. Not really much help, but people like that will not stop until they are stopped.  my hopes are in your corner!!!

      Yeah, they were taking credit for my work 😡 Luckily AO3 seems to work quickly. I sent them a complaint this morning and they've already responded and taken down the story. Yay!

    Yeah, Erik was kind of picking fight, maybe without realizing it. And the whole leaving New York thing is a weird mental game that doesn't always make much sense! 😊

    Hahaha, it's not a fun activity! 😅
  12. GAH. I'm so angry. Just found out that someone has stolen all three of my stories (Stepping Out in Faith, Between the Push and Pull, and Embracing the Tension), changed the titles, character names, bastardized my writing and then posted them as their own on Wattpad. 

     

    I suppose this was bound to happen sooner or later. Perhaps it's a sign that my writing is good enough that someone wants to plagiarize me? Can't help feeling violated though. Not just because of the work I've put in and the work my editor has put in, but it's like they've violated the sanctity of the story itself. 

     

    I've already reported this to Wattpad, but not sure if anything is going to be done. GAH!!!

      I'm sorry this happened to you. I've had it happen to me several times, and it's a huge violation every time. And Wattpad's policy about plagiarism SUCKS, which is probably why so many of the disgusting creeps post there. You must issue a DMCA notice on Wattpad for your stories, and they will remove those in a fairly reasonable, but they rarely, if ever, ban the plagiarists. They just blithely let them continue stealing, even if you show the other stories in their account are stolen as well, unless the authors issue DMCA notices. It's totally messed up!

      I’m so sorry this happened to you, HB. How did you find out?

      Thanks @Cia! I reported one story and Wattpad took it down quickly. But when I went to report the other two, I couldn't find the user anymore. Not sure if they cancelled their account or many changed their name so I can't find them...  

       

      @Lisa A reader was kind enough to message me and let me know.

    Haha, yes, they can "work" very hard on making a Nathaniel, but I'm not sure how successful those attempts will be! Thank you!!!

    Chapter 11

    Thank you so much!! I really do consider this their happily ever after. Whether they'll eventually get married or whether they'll have kids still up in the air, but that doesn't mean they won't still be happy together for the rest of their lives!
