Have yourself a great time. While I'm here, I may as well share some amusing tidbits.
LOLOLOL at a spamming "promotional group" that sent me ebooks without my requesting them, only to become silent once I reviewed some of those ebooks these two weeks. Have they realized what they have gotten themselves into?
Interesting link at POD People.
Oh, and while we're talking about traditional publishing, seriously, some people should stop getting so anal about the phrase "traditional publishing". You know who you are. Just because PublishAmerica described themselves that way does not mean that anyone who uses that phrase is an evil scumbag. Stop projecting your own issues on innocent bystanders and come up with a better (more user-friendly) phrase to replace that one while you're at it. If not, go take your lighters and popcorns and shove them up... er, go torch some Christmas trees.
We need a new blog or a website in the community. Seriously. I think we need a dynamic new voice that says something different, even if that something is not what we'd like to hear. The current scene feels rather... stagnant, shall we say, with the same things being rehashed, the same echo chamber effect taking place in the comments, and even the same people showing up everywhere. Or is there a super secret romance haunt that I am not aware of?
