I told people before that anyone could write a story, but not everyone could be an author. We all want to be successful at it, some of us can even have some of the best stories out of five, but no one would ever know, because we don't have a tittle. We're not established and no one knows our name... Read more of this blog post »

Joy Zelig Joy Zelig's blog:
My policy has long been to publish separate vignettes, then "the full trilogy," then, usually a paperback version of the trils.

The vignettes would be $2.99--other prices extrapolated from there.

It's been made clear to me that this was too much for too little.

So . . . I've taken down everything... Read more of this blog post »

Women!
Don't toss your bras
At musical concerts
Fling those books
Of poetry
You spent time writing
Revealing your agony
Of love and life and fantasy
That rarely, if ever, comes true
Toss that lacy, black book
Of rhythmic suffering
Or toss that hard-living
Denim tome
Of your broken heart and home
