I couldn’t have said it better

This article sums up something I have been trying to say for a very long time. In the past three years more people have stolen my work than have bought it. To all those who are so put out about me not releasing the final book in the SEAL Team series, I’ve tried to explain before, maybe this will do a better job. And while you’re reading, try to imagine your employer asking you to work for free, or not paying you for the work you’ve done. For those of you who don’t get it, who will continue to STEAL I sincerely hope you reap what you sew.

  1. That article was a HUGE eye opener!! 4 million pirated books in a year is insane & not all of those books were from authors whose names are easily recognized as NY Times best selling authors. There was independent authors doing these books on their own, case in point Jordan & some people think it’s OK to steal their work? Completely insane!!
    I’m nowhere near perfect or an angel but I couldn’t steal something someone put a lot of hard work & time & themselves into & feel OK with myself stealing their hard work. If you don’t want to buy a book when it first comes out because of the price wait a bit & the price will drop,or go to the library & borrow it or see if it’s on Kindle unlimited. Don’t steal someone else’s work & think it’s just this once I’ll do it they won’t miss the money from 1 book. You don’t know what they make on those books & honestly it’s none of your business Pay for the damn book!!
    I hope the business of pirating books stops for all authors but especially the independent authors like Jordan!!
    Thanks for the link to the article Jordan it was really eye opening on how many books are pirated.

  2. I love all your books and I am sorry all this happens to you. I buy all my books if I want them I buy them and I always want yours. That is why I have an Amazon card lol

  3. CANT STAND THIEVES!!! I BUY EVERYTHING I READ… PERIOD!!!
    IT IS PRODUCED THROUGH THE HARD WORK OF ANOTHER PERSON AND IS AS DESERVING OF PAYMENT AS ANYONE ELSE THAT WORKS TO PROVANY SERVICE!!!

  4. I completely understand.. I would pay full price for any of your books. Whether from you personally or from a store like Barnes and noble… I really hope that eventually you would finish the deal series I’m doing to know how it ends. I hope people understand what your trying to convey in this msg
