Thanks for sending a friend request to this fellow author on Goodreads!"


Well met! I think it is the Kindleboards that brought us together, Beth, the thread there in which people give explicit permission to invite friendship. I'm very hesitant to invite anyone that I know only on Goodreads, for fear of being labeled a spammer.

You may not have received this invitation I've sent to my friend list about twenty minutes ago:

http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/4679...

I've started a group on Goodreads for intellectual conversation. I'm just bored with gatekeepers on Amazon demanding that we dumb down everything to their level, with moderators elsewhere rushing around protecting drive-by shooters who should be put down for their own edification and everyone else's entertainment. Let's have some robust discussion.

ROBUST has no rules, none. Perhaps you won't like everything that happens there. But you'll like the space in which you expand yourself, and perhaps learn a little from others also expanding their personalities. ROBUST, in short, is a throwback to the time when authors and readers were all intellectuals, and together mighty, and fear did not stalk the creators.

Come join me at ROBUST and share the mind-food.

http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/4679...

Pass this invitation on to your social network, blare it abroad on the fora and groups.
