Happy first day of spring, my fellow werewolf lovers, 
          I am mostly leaving WP after last weeks discoveries, I just can't do it anymore. So Read Cora Now! the International Wildflower Pack comment inspired Clayton fanfiction called Cora is moving off this platform to protect it from plagiarist book thieves and malware mirror sites. I will not have my fellow #IWP Wildflowers put at risk. I asked our Queen and have her permission but I may be changing three names slightly to protect her trademark.  I don't have to because it is a fan fiction but I wanted to know how you feel about it.  @inter_wildflowerpack @wattywolves @whiskeyqueenn 
          Thank you for sharing the love of wolves, Mama Magie

@PenumbraMine It's so sad that things have devolved into this. We had such a close knit community and slowly, very slowly, I've seen it disappear. I wish you well and always consider you a friend .... God Bless

The Huntsman of Adamos, Book 4: A Huntsman's Horror launches today and I am so happy! 
          https://www.amazon.com/Huntsmans-Horror.../dp/B08RNVR9GR
          
          And my Launch Day video on my YouTube channel 
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gO1Nvlz9Wws
          The Huntsman Lord of Adamos watched his Sealed One purposely let herself be captured by the Umbracruor Mages of Xelusia. Her forever death would be Yurieth’s greatest horror after realizing he loves her more than his honor. But no one knows Fluer discovered the secret behind her real origin. Facts hidden for millenniums by the games of oracles. She now hates the House of Adamos for the truth she gleaned.
          Masquerading as a Dark Oracle, Lady Fleur no longer needs Yurieth’s love to power her magic, she has the Darkness. Her life and soul in trade for the power to maintain the distant future’s victory. The Cataclysm War will happen as it did happen because Fleur will do anything necessary to keep the timeline intact.
          Determined to stop her self-sacrifice, Yurieth hopes to rescue Fleur before she succumbs to the madness that affects all who are indwelled by the Cruorlena entity, but will she let him?
          
          And this makes the fifth of my #HoldMyCoffee2021 10 in 12 months goal! Woah-oh, Halfway there!

More bad news: as of 2 months ago the Vietnamese mirror site Truyen is back under the moniker Truyen4U. 
          Yes, it is showing All of Wattpad.  
          DO NOT go to this site unless you have the highest level of virus and malware protection. The Truyen4U site was flagged and blocked by my software as it attempted to upload malware to my laptop three times in less than five minutes.  This is the third time in four years Truyen has done this. They are thieves and making ad revenue on your words along with harboring ill intent toward everyone who uses their site by uploading malware and stealing P.I.. 
          Sorry Wattpaders, I love the community of readers and fellow writers but without security, there can be no trust. I had hoped things would change under Naver, but with the same people running the offices the change was in name only.  I am taking my 2M words elsewhere. If you want to read the rest of the story, I am PenumbraMine or M.M. Ward on other platforms.

@PenumbraMine Well, at-least this is mirror site, right? Did you have any luck with the apps? I did raise a ticket with Apple app store and reported them. Managed to do the same with google store too.

The problems continue, Volcano Ebooks and NovelBee  (both owned by Wang XiaoYi) may have your #books.  I do NOT recommend anyone sign up for these, they are surveillance apps that want access to all contacts and info on your phone. It is time like these that make me mad that I live 17 miles from a cellular network but I do not know if I would be willing to approve these apps to be active on a phone. 
          It is just so frustrating. WP knows admitted they had a massive data breech last summer. They claimed it was just user names and emails. However a few years ago they had a breech which included unpublished chapters so we knew the whole database had been cloned.  Since I can't see the apps on my laptop I am uncertain if they are mirror sites or actual clones of WP but some have reported there are stories under different usernames than on wattpad and that would make it outright theft. 
          Stay Vigilant, fellow writers.

@PenumbraMine  So, so sorry you are having to go through this again. Your writing style is so good that these thieves recognize the value, thus you pay the price for being so good. I'm truly sorry this is happening again.

I’m glad I removed the things I plan on traditionally publishing someday. Wattpad just keeps getting worse and worse when it comes to the pirating of their content.
