My book is being pirated — am I bothered? No.… Help yourself.

Yesterday someone pointed out to me that my kids book, Johnny Nothing, is available to download for free on some dodgy website. This has happened to me a few times with other books in the past but it’s a first for Johnny Nothing.

Am I bovvered? Not at all. Let them have it. Let them read it. Let them hopefully tell people about it who will also download it. Who knows whose hands it might fall into?

There are so many reasons why I cannot and will not start bleating on about people downloading my book. Probably the chief one is hypocrisy. And whilst I am not overjoyed that people are stealing my work without paying for it (believe me, I’d much rather get paid) I’m not going to waste my time trying to stop it.

So here’s the dodgy link: http://caupewinnepin1961.wordpress.com/2011/12/24/johnny-nothing-by-ian-probert-download-pdf-book/

It’s a bit of a scam because you have to sign up to download, which I have not done. Maybe you will. Alternatively, Here’s the links if you do want to get the book legitimately and buy me a beer in the process:
