Hi peeps. I need some help, I hope you guys are willing. One of my biggest fears has happened and it couldn’t have happened at a worse time either.
Someone has stolen the storyline of Save Me and published it two months before I was set to.
There’s no copy and pasting, but the characters include a widow who lost her child and has been basically locked away from people for two years until she meets a tall, blonde, crystal-eyed sweetheart who saves her. And wouldn’t you know? He has a little sister who’s a lesbian too.
I’m devastated, angry, and everything in between. Not only is this story dear to my heart, it was a labor of love from start to finish, but I have recently spent quite a lot of time and money preparing it for publishing. If I go ahead and publish on schedule without taking a stand against this person, I’m the one who’s going to look like the thief.
Most, if not all of you have read this fic and left me so many wonderful comments, and I’ll forever be grateful for all of it, but I need you one more time. Because it’s a fanfic and published on the internet I have very shaky legal grounds. Our stuff can be, and is, easily stolen. We have to fight back in other ways. I need those of you that have read Save Me to contact me please, if you’re willing to help.
I’ve already contacted this person and, of course, she denied it, then threatened legal action against me. Go figure.
Thank you guys, love you all!
