Copyright Infringement is Against the Law Worldwide!
I can’t believe I’m having to do this. Take time away from writing to attend to someone who is stealing content from my blogs (Reluctant Medium at Large and Parallel Universe at Large) and posting them in another country. Copyright Infringement is against the law worldwide. Please respect all the time and hard work that goes into anyone’s blog and DO NOT STEAL!
“The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes the act of circumventing an access control, whether or not there is actual infringement of copyright itself. In addition, the DMCA heightens the penalties for copyright infringement on the Internet.” Wikipedia.org
WIPO was created in 1967 “to encourage creative activity, to promote the protection of intellectual property throughout the world.” Wikipedia.org
A Crime Fiction Tour of the Nation
Reported by G G Collins
Welcome to a country of mystery, mayhem and murder. Thirty-one mystery writers from all over the US joined forces to wreak havoc. It’s a virtual mystery candy store with everything from Cozy to Procedural to Paranormal. North, south, east or west; we’ve got you covered. No region was spared from the grip of terror.
And the really big news? It will be FREE! Free to try new, known and emerging authors. Edited by Kristen Elise, PhD.
More clues are forthcoming.

Call for Excerpts: Murder, USA and Murder, International
Hello, Murder Lab Community! This is a special invitation/call to action for authors.
I’m putting together an anthology of sorts. In contrast to a true anthology, which implies a collection of short stories, this is actually going to be a collection of excerpts from published, full-length novels–sort of like a compilation of Amazon “Look Inside” features from similarly-themed novels, all in one nifty little, e-mailable, downloadable, linkable, social media promotable package. . .

Working to Finish “Lemurian Medium”
I’m going to take time to finish my next book in the Reluctant Medium series. I’ve set a deadline for completion. If something quick comes to mind, I’ll stop in and make a post. And of course, there’s always spam to clean off. Please bear with me as I knuckle down and get this book completed.
Writing the Reluctant Medium at Large blog is a delight and I will be back–I hope to announce the second book is done!
I’ll probably be making one more post to Parallel Universe at Large. That would give me 10 posts on the new blog. Much more to come on that front too. Thanks for your patience and as always for stopping by and saying “hello.”
