Yes, I know there are posts older than that on the site but that’s because I shamelessly moved them here from my other, older blog when I first started to separate my seller life from my fiction writer life. It was September 30th, 2008 when I started this sometimes angry, usually funny and always ranting little blog about selling, publis...

Daniel Tell me something, Hillary.

Do you think we are going to have a Hillary for president?
