I know I’m not the first to come out and publicly support Jane in her fight against the lawsuit being pursued by Ellora’s Cave against her for reporting items that are being reported via multiple outlets. I cannot help but think about the old adage – Where there is smoke there is fire….
This lawsuit speaks to me as a decision made in desperation and in order to spark fear from those who would speak out against Ellora’s Cave. Kudos to those who have publicly spoken about their experiences with this house and I hope they get a resolution that favors them. To those who are caught up in this mess and publish via other platforms…
Please feel free to reach out to me… I’m happy to help publicize you in any way as long as it isn’t an Ellora’s Cave title.
I’m going to state this…
At this point in time… I will not support any title that is being published by Ellora’s Cave. I’m sorry that it had to come to this but with your actions against Dear Author you have this blogger adamantly opposed to your house. While I want to support the authors whose livelihoods you have harmed as a result of this stupidity I cannot in good conscience provide any of my dollars to your coffers.
I also will not support any of the authors who have publicly celebrated this action by Ellora’s Cave against Jane. While you might not like her or her site publicly celebrating the attack of a blogger that has done so much to assist those who have been plagiarized. You might also consider that an action like this made by a publishing house against someone reporting items that are in the public domain could quite as easily come against you one day. Did you also consider that perhaps some of the funds being used by Ellora’s Cave to bring this lawsuit to being might be from funds they owe the authors, editors and others who are caught up in this fiasco??? Probably not… My guess is you didn’t think at all before you gloated. Well, I and others noticed and trust me… we are very happily going to avoid your work in the future.
Again, I know my site isn’t as large as the many that have come out against this action by Ellora’s Cave but I can’t stay silent.
