This article is over 6 years old Indecent exposure … Fantasy author Terry Goodkind has publicly castigated a pirate of his ebook Wizard hero Richard Rahl smites wrongdoers with his Sword of Truth. His creator, the bestselling fantasy author Terry Goodkind, turned to Facebook to name and shame a fan who pirated a digital version of his latest novel, The First Confessor.
Goodkind, whose epic Sword of Truth fantasy series has sold 25m copies around the world, according to its publisher Tortook the unusual move of deciding to self-publish The First Confessor: The Legend of Magda Searus as an ebook exclusive. Goodkind was outraged, and decided to name one of the pirates on his Facebook pageposting the perpetrator's details — including a photo — and prompting an onslaught of online fury against him.
Not even for someone that is emphatically trying to reach out to people that might consider pirating our hard work? Can't be bothered to read and consider our note on piracy in the front of the book?
We hope the price of fame is worth the cost of your infamy. The pirate "took it upon himself to exploit and freely share our work for all of this last year. In response, we decided to share what had been his work from last night," wrote Goodkind. We exposed someone that claimed to be a fan, a reader of books, had accessibility to the books, had every incentive to purchase and support them, but instead chose not only to disregard the work, the values within it, and our own personal pleas.
In being transparent with everyone here about what it has taken to get this book delivered to readers and to enable this story to be told, piracy is an inevitable chapter of that tale still being written.
Goodkind's approach — a more aggressive tactic than that taken by the novelist Lloyd Shepherd, who engaged on a forum with book pirates earlier this year — drew both praise and censure from readers. Others, however, were concerned about a "mob mentality" and called it "highly dubious" and "vigilantism".Jul 01, · Download Popular Ebook In The Club Download / Read: Home › Books › Ringside Seat to a Revolution: An Underground Cultural History of El Paso and Ju rez: Ringside Seat to a Revolution: An Underground Cultural History of El Paso and Ju rez: Miracles From the Vault More Than 90 Life Saving, Award Winning 'Underground Cures'[Health & Alternative Medicine][Health Science Institute] Uploaded by prakash Miracles From the Vault More Than 90 Life Saving, Award Winning 'Underground Cures.
