I Am So Sorry
Really, I am. But after finding out about the amount of work being plagiarized from FictionPress daily, I'm leaving.
I do this with a very heavy heart. FictionPress has always been a great support base and I've really enjoyed my time here. I was even planning on splitting up my stories and posting them under another pseudonym to create some order among my many genres and styles throughout time. But, alas, that will not be happening. Instead I'm taking down most of my work. I will do what some other authors have done and leave the first chapters to use the time stamp, should I ever find my writing has been plagiarized. It hasn't happened yet, at least not in a way that I could trace it, but I'm not going to wait till it does. I'm not going to wait until someone takes credit for my babies. Not by a long shot.
I will be back, no doubt about it. Once I find an online medium I feel I can safely use I will let you know via another update. In the meantime, you can check for updates of Forsaken and Dead End on my InkPop profile, under lailashka. Check out the rest of the site, it's pretty fun, and there is some great writers on there.
I hope you're not too disappointed. If you need to be mad at someone, feel free to hate all plagiarists. Support anti-plagiarism communities and if you spot someone plagiarizing report it immediately.
As for the silver lining, well, when I start posting again, I'll hopefully have worked over most of my old stuff and brought things up to standard.
Thank you all for your years of support.
