Happy Valentines Day!

So the new book is still going well, I’m up to 22,857 words so far and things are progressing nicely.  The only thing is I keep going back and forth on the main character’s name.  I had him at first as Rand Cooper and I was happy with that when it was set in the south.  When I changed the location to California I switched it to Nick and now I can’t decide which I like better!

I finally wrapped up my fanfic Wake Me When the Sun Goes Down!  It came in at a whopping 47 chapters!  I’m sad to see it go, it really turned into an epic tale, but at the same time I’m happy to move on to something new!  I’ll probably be starting up the next fic in a week or two so I can get a little more done on the book before I start.

Something strange came to my attention on fanfic.net the other day, I found out that someone had literally copied and pasted my work, added a bit to the end and called it their own!  I know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but come on!  I reported her and sent her a note demanding that she take it down immediately which she did.  She had the nerve to tell me that she thought she had my permission! 

Pretty much her inquiry went:  Hey are you gong to complete this story? Because I think it is a base for a lot of good branches and if you wont complete it, others can gladly.
Anyways LOVE your writing…..

my reponse: I really hope to get back to this one at some point, but I keep running out of time! as always, so many projects, so little time to write!

So… where exactly did it say she could copy my work and not give me credit?  I wouldn’t have cared if she took the basic concept and rewritten it, lord knows I don’t own the market on crossover ideas, but damn… it was disconcerting to see my work under someone else’s name.  She even changed the POV from third person to 1st when she started writing without batting an eye.  Strange…

So, how is your week going?
