I think social media is pretty much bunk for writers
I read a good bit of writing business blogs, primarily for indie publishers. I have a RSS feed of about ten people, and add more when they're recommended. It's impossible to read everything form ev...

"Seeing these new authors pump out books like crickets reproducing" -  that made my day.  Personally, I would say that these people are more like parasites than prostitutes.
I suspect that the half-baked books they produce are sold on the first fifty pages with the author hoping that no one ever bothers to read the whole thing.
Nice Essay

My first novel is available for just 99 cents this week--get it while it's hot! Or give it to someone else, I'm fine with both. Just don't NOT buy it, that wouldn't make any sense.

What do you do when you throw out an entire year?
I struggled with the title of this post. A Year in The Trash A Year Wasted Fuck, I Just Wasted a Year Writing a Book I'm Not Going to Publish. The first two aren't exactly accurate. The last one is...

+David Beers I hope that you are right. There is also a trend for the 'whores' to move from series' to serials (promotion of Kindle Singles will only increase this). In which case a distinction may form between the serious writers who stick to the novel format and those who follow trends and switch to shorter fiction. Those interested in writing a good book will continue to make novels, whilst those purely looking for money can serialise their stories (breaking a novel into anything from 5 to 10 parts and seling each for $2.99). In this scenario, the 'whores' make even more money and the quality of complete novels should improve. Eveyone's a winner. Maybe.
