How Fluff and Puff Handle File Sharing Sites


There’s always talk about file sharing sites where readers find downloads of authors’ books. What they don’t realize, and sadly, some don’t care, is that these sites are illegal since it’s copyright infringement and in the end hurts the author.
I always wondered what Fluff and Puff would do if they wanted to make sure romance writer witch Thea’s books didn’t have that problem. This is why I like having the guys on my side.

“Very cool,” Fluff crooned, using his ears to tap the computer keys. “Think it will work?”
“Krebs did the basics. We’re just making it better.” Puff read off computer code that had more than a smidge of magick to it while Fluff typed away. “Okay, type all and then hit enter.”
“Yes!” The slippers grinned as they slapped high fives with their ears and sat back to enjoy the show.

“Perfect! I love file sharing sites,” the woman crooned as she clicked on the download button.
She looked up at her friend. “This is Thea James’ latest hardcover book, no less. I’ll make a copy for you.”
“Thanks! I found her first book. I haven’t read that one.” Her friend was busy on her laptop as she was on another book file sharing site preparing to download a book file. “I wish I’d known about these sites a long time ago. I sure would have saved a lot of money.”
The first woman frowned and stared at her computer as the screen abruptly turned red.Bad bad bad! Much safer to just buy the book, because then your computer wouldn’t melt. Now to work on the site itself. Love, Fluff and Puff.
“Oh my God!” She shrieked as she jumped away from her computer that slowly and steadily melted into a metallic puddle.
"Eek!” The other woman dropped her laptop onto the floor where it also was dissolving at a rapid rate.
They stood back and stared at what used to be their computers then looked at each other with a combination of shock and horror.
“Who’s Fluff and Puff?’

    Think Lucy and Ethel at the chocolate factory. That would be Fluff and Puff but a million times worse.
