I posted this information on another site. This is the response I got from one of the writers there:
"This is the same writer who supposedly sold off stories from asstr.org and a few other sex story sites. Some of us on asstr received emails about a few months ago, and the person allegedly was not given any penalty because they didn't sell the books under their own name.
They had used "kindle" because an actual book didn't need to be printed. It was available through a download like it is now.
Whichever writers are affected need to contact amazon.com immediately because copies have already been sold of those books."

While I am not ashamed of my writing, or anything that I may post on a forum, my friends and family would crap if they knew. For that reason, my identity is the one thing I hide. Other than that, I am open, and don't lie. Why do that? It's much too hard to keep up with and cover.
As far as others, I've been lied to, stalked, threatened. It's been handled different ways on different sites. It's my own fault, because I trusted that others were being as honest as I was. You just never know.
Topic RUMPLATIONS: Honky Tonk and Cyber Bar

Just so you know:
Our very own Algol, has just posted a "Quickie Sex" story, A CHANCE ENCOUNTER . (there's also a link on his sig line) It's a short, hot, read and includes a redhead. What more could anyone want?
ELJS, one of my "friends" and a very good writer, has posted, ELAINE . It's his first try at BDSM. And while he doesn't care about votes, he sent out a PM saying he'd appreciate comments.
Anytime you post a new story or poem, let us know. Putting a notice on the PUMPLATIONS bulletin board isn't blowing your own horn or bragging but just, "Telling it like it is."
While I very much appreciate the "plug" for my story, and you are correct, I don't really care about the votes, I like getting comments that will help me grow as a writer, I have just one small objection. EJLS is a woman, not a man - wait - looking down at my chest, seeing significant cleavage, and not feeling a package between my legs - yes, I am indeed a woman.
Topic Play the field or Fuck Buddy

If I were ever to do that, I would say fuck buddy, simply because it implies a friendship and history. Playing the field is too dangerous.
Topic Favorite Acronyms

CRS - Can't remember shit
On the golf course - PGA - pretty God awful or USGA - you suck, go again
Topic Ladies, what do you look for in a man?

First and foremost - intelligence. The mind is the most erotic part of the body. If you can't put together a cohesive sentence, why would I want to spend time with you. Second - wit. I want you to make me laugh. Tease me and let me tease you. Third - kindess. I want to see you treat people with respect. Physical turn-on's? Not as important, but cleanliness comes to mind.

The Tongue is good, but my "heart" belongs to my rabbit-style vibes. My gf's swear by their Hitachi Magic Wands. I think that may be my next purchase.
