Ya, I'd Rather Not Tell the Rest of the Story

In case you're wondering why I haven't posted any more of my novel, The Generation, on my blog, it's because of copyright infringements and people stealing my work. I know that may sound harsh, but believe it or not I've already had someone copy another work of mine and claim it as theirs. And believe me every time I see my work with their name on it, it really ticks me off beyond words.

Unfortunately, as a lawyer has told me, there's not really anything I can do since I never had a copyright protection put on it and the original work is written with no way of verifying the dates. I can verify that I wrote it when I was a senior in H.S., but doesn't do me much good now.

So as far as The Generation is concerned, I'm learning by my mistakes and taking a family member's advice this time around. I can tell you this much, I have been adding more to the novel and hopefully it will be complete before the next 10
