It's been a while since you posted, so hope you'll stop by and see this answer.
Pirating is a problem. For us newbies, it can be our downfall. We work like dogs to come up with a marketable product only to be ripped off by folks who think EVERYTHING should be free on the web.
I've come across a program by Mike Chen that holds considerable promise. It was actually recommended to me by another author who's work was prirated. He applied it and has stopped the problem.
Now, the bad news is that it's a monthly service which you pay for. The good news is that even if it only saves you a few books, it's paid for itself. The even better news is that Mike has also set up an affiliate program.
To me, that makes the whole thing a win-win situation.
I'll share the information by e-mail to avoid any rules violations as I'm new here.
