You may or may not be aware of the issues surrounding The Story Siren and plagiarism over the last few weeks. I'm not going to repeat the whole situation - if you're unaware of what I'm talking about, Reading With Martini's post about her own thoughts with links to all the posts that supply the necessary information about the situation.
Having read everything, I have made a decision. As a community, honesty and fairness is hugely important to us, and I am so against plagiarism. Seeing the evidence that the victims have shared, I don't condone what has happened and no longer feel comfortable associating my blog with The Story Siren. So I have decided to boycott.
This means several things. I no longer follow The Story Siren on any social networks. I no longer follow The Story Siren by GFC or any other means. I will no longer be taking part in the Debut Author Challenge. All references to the challenge have been removed from my blog, and I am in the process of having my link removed from the participants list. I will continue to post about the books I receive each week, but I will no longer be taking part in In My Mailbox. And finally, I will no longer be visiting The Story Siren.
This aim of this post to inform you of the changes that are now in effect, and so you are aware of my position on plagiarism. It's unacceptable, and I cannot support anyone who does plagiarise.
