message 1: by Audra (new)

Audra Watts (audrasbookblabbing) | 19 comments I applied to be a librarian a couple weeks ago and have not been accepted. I really want this and tried to reapply, but it won't let me. The first time I applied, I didn't put a really good reason and have something much better to say, now.

What do I do?

Thanks!

Oh, I didn't realize that. Thank you!

No, I don't. I am self-publishing a book with my friend if that is what you mean.

Audra Watts (audrasbookblabbing) | 19 comments I’m sorry if my sentences are cut off. I’m not sure if the site is messing up or it’s just my phone messing up.

I don't know if that makes much difference. Thing is there were bad experiences in the past with publishers (and authors) having full librarian rights (edits against Goodreads policy and such). But I'm not staff, so who knows :)

No, they aren't cut off on my end :)

That's so sad! I hate it when people abuse things and ruin it for the rest of us.
