Rick was carrying me on his shoulder like a bag of potatoes. Lethargic but conscious, I noticed he headed straight for the little shed at the back of his house. After he unlocked the door and walked in, he dropped me carelessly. My head hit the floor with brutal force almost knocking me out. With... Read more of this blog post »

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post that has me this angry. There’s a piece in the Marine Corps Gazette entitled “Why Women Do Not Belong in the US Infantry” by CPT Lauren F. Serrano. I’d link to it here but it’s behind a paywall.

Why This Bestselling Author Decided To Start Self-Publishing «Mi rendo conto che alcuni scrittori vogliono l’autorevolezza data da un editore. Vi prego, lasciatevi dire da chi l’ha avuta che l’unica autorevolezza che conta è quella data dai lettori. È il punto in cui il mercato incontra il piacere della narrazione. Anche libri di minor interesse, quelli c...

a fisherman on whom I dined

First of all, I wouldn’t be a fan of being called a “B List Author” either. It seems like an outrageous thing for a publisher to tell anyone. But keep in mind, it’s just one obviously jaded editor on one day.

They pop up on forums asking what’s to stop someone who reads their story from taking it and publishing it as their own. Other people usually tell them to stop worrying about it, it’s very unlikely!
