Remember the Goodreads fanfic debaucle? Well, another site is now doing it. I just found 13 of my stories listed over on ebooks-tree.com, a for-profit site where I neither uploaded them nor authorized anyone else to do so.
I have a very clear statement that says I do not want my works or translations published on any platform other than AO3, for various reasons, yet this seems to have been completely ignored.
They make revenue off your work via ads and if you want to see any reviews which have been left on it, they want you to create an account with TzarMedia for access.“Access Required.You need to create an account to gain permission to access unlimited downloads & streaming.“
“Take advantage of our special promotional offer to gain unlimited access for 5 days for free.”
Which, gee, that last line sounds like they’re charging for access to your works, too.
If you write fanfic, please check the site for your own works, Google for your name and the ebooks-tree site.
I just wrote them a letter requesting that they be removed. I guess we’ll see what happens.

This is not a comprehensive list – please check the site for your works.
Please reblog/signal boost this so as many authors as possible know about it.
UGGGHHHH signal boost. I’ll try to email them today too.
Six of mine are on here, too. Click their DCMA link and it tells you the lengthy process you must go through to get it removed. Ugh.
There are twelve of my stories on this site. I’m not okay with this, and am writing up a complaint to submit to the site owners right now. (Trin, Cate, Jenn, some of your work is on here as well.)
Do not upload copies of any of my fanfic anywhere online. I do not give permission for my work to be archived anywhere other than my own AO3 account and my personal journalling accounts.
Fucking hell, I’m on there too.
WTF. Two of my stories are on that site.
