I'm not sorry...

So let me start off by saying I have the most amazing group of readers, ya'll seriously are so amazing. You have no idea what your continued support means to me. Now this post may get me on authors behaving badly list, but I am not sorry. So why write it you ask/ because I have to say this, I have to get it off my chest.
 The definition of fiction is as follows Fiction is the form of any work that deals, in part or in whole, with information or events that are not real, but rather, imaginary and theoretical—that is, invented by the author. source Wikipedia

Now that said when I started writing my Black Rebel Riders' MC Series I had not read one biker/MC book not one. I didn't know there was a guide I had to follow that I had to do certain things to write a biker book. What am I talking about? The past few days I have been getting called out for changing terms normally used in biker books. I didn't know it was mandatory. So what I call church-choir, prospects-potentials, old lady's-top bitch.  It was what I wanted. I am an artist, my stories are my art, and I'm not sorry. I knew people would complain but to discount the story for it is ridiculous. I didn't want to write a carbon copy of all the other biker books, I'm not knocking them because I have read some amazing ones now. But I wanted mine to be different I don't want to be like everyone else. I have my own story to tell, if I didn't I would be writing fan-fiction. And hey there is nothing wrong with that either, but this is my series, my story and if I want it to be different that's okay. So no I won't change the terminology to please a few people and no I'm not sorry. Peace love and hair grease or some shit, that is all :)
