If you’ve followed me on social media long enough, you’ve likely heard me repeat the words of Neil Gaiman when it comes to piracy: “Piracy is not the enemy of writers. Obscurity is.”
From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children’s books.
I’ve noticed a surge of “piracy” lately, judging by recent interactions with my readers. Check out Nicholas’s full article (the link is below) for why I put “piracy” in quotes. It’s usually not what you think it is. And, if it is what you think it is…so what?

Nat Russo is the Amazon #1 Bestselling Fantasy author of Necromancer Awakening and Necromancer Falling.
Nat was born in New York, raised in Arizona, and has lived just about everywhere in-between. He’s gone from pizza maker, to radio DJ, to Catholic seminarian (in a Benedictine monastery, of all places), to police officer, to software engineer. His career has taken him from central Texas to central Germany, where he worked as a defense contractor for Northrop Grumman. He's spent most of his adult life developing software, playing video games, running a Cub Scout den, gaining/losing weight, and listening to every kind of music under the sun.
Along the way he managed to earn a degree in Philosophy and a black belt in Tang Soo Do.
He currently makes his home in central Texas with his wife, teenager, mischievous beagle, and goofy boxador.
