Hi Everyone,

This isn’t a post about a story.  It’s not really an update to my plagiarism throwdown either.

But it’s something really important that affects all of us in the fan fiction community.  When this whole thing went down with my work being stolen, I was totally adrift.  Everyone had an opinion about my rights and what I was able to do or not do, and I can tell you right now that 95% of those people–though well-intentioned–were way off base.

It really frightened me that, as creators, none of us seemed to know how to protect ourselves, should someone come along, read our stories, like what they see, and simply take it, tweak, slap it between two covers and sell it for their own gain.  Lots of people voiced that I’m not a real author since I’m “infringing” on the AB and CH copyrights.  Several said that, sure…

BOO!

Fanfiction by Bertie Bott

I scared you, didn’t I???

Updates for BOTH stories to be up during the weekend, but I wanted to remind everyone about the Halloween writing contest. Just 8 days left to submit and I’m looking forward to being too scared to get a drink of water in the middle of the night! Please share this post to help spread the word and for those of you who have already submitted, go ahead and use the banner below to tease your readers – it’s fun, trust me 😉

Happy haunting!
