Just means you’re old. Or busy.
Can you believe it’s Monday already? Where does the time go?
Not much to report on this fine Monday Morning in TMSOLAND, but here are a few tidbits you might be interested in.
Everyone likes filling out survey forms, right? Right. Right? Come on, it’ll only take ya 10 to 15 minutes. It only took me five, but then again, I have nothing to report!
Michael J. Sullivan, fantasy author extraordinaire and author of the popular series The Riyria Revelations, has created a survey for you. He aims to gather information about the salaries writers and/or authors can be expected to earn in whatever publishing scenario you might have going on. The survey is completely anonymously, and he’ll be providing the raw results to whomever asks. Check it out and spread the word.
Those Pesky Boogers
No, not the ones up your nose. Those things on the page. The warts and zits you never see until your masterpiece makes its debut before the largest audience ever. You know, typos. (How many can you count in this post?)
Well, it seems folks are talking about them more than usual, and it is not just because we live in a better Amercia (typo intended!). Is it because everyone wants to be a writer? Maybe. When reading, does it bother you to see typos? Check out J. W. Manus’ post on the matter and join the conversation.
The Robots Are Coming!
I’m embarrassed to say, I didn’t know. Can you blame me? I’m a Kindleholic. The App, that is. Forgive me. (Note to self: must get Stanza back on my iPhone.)
But, if you’re not tied to your Kindle at the hip, new and growing publisher, Angry Robot Books, has just announced a merging of the minds. They’ve joined forces with independent publishing houses Anarchy Books and Infinity Plus to offer even more genre-related ebooks on The Robot Trading Co (RTC) website.
And, they want more. If you know of independent genre publishers with ebooks to sell, send them over to the RTC’s FAQ page, where they can find information on how to submit to the RTC.
Until later, slow down.
