There's a website called Share Term Papers. Apparently, they are also sharing lots of books, including the PDF galley of my not-yet-released book The Raft. And plenty of other people's books. Yes, they have an Author Opt Out list. But that only applies to the general boards, and they do whatever they want on the private boards. Someone was nice enough to alert me to this and took screen shots of The Raft being offered to anyone who wants it. Did I mention the book isn't even published yet?  The board I managed to get on was requesting, and getting, books by Lauren Myracle and others. The Lauren Myracle book had been downloaded 45 times. Wow. That can't be legal, can it? Please share this with whomever you think might want to know they may be a victim. Because there isn't another name for it, is there?
An addendum: The ARC of my book has been downloaded 61 times. Half my family has not even read the book yet!

April Henry I got a Google Alert that someone was soliciting Girl, Stolen on there. That kind of thing burns my britches.

Macmillan has a piracy department. I could give you the email for reports.
