In Coldest Type: Crack Addiction in American Publishing

As someone who is writing a novel and trying to procure a publisher, I find this post both very timely and very depressing.

Thanks for your insights. Hopefully the publishing industry will change some of these practices, but it doesn't sound likely.

Luckily, by the time I get around to getting a novel finished -- or compiling enough of my shorter stuff to make up a book -- "text" will be temporarily projected onto the "readers" retina by way of a some nano device, or else it will be downloaded and then inscribed directly onto the cerebral cortex using an Apple iBrain.

Oh my stars and garters! I just caught you in a typo which would not be noteworthy except for the topic of this post:

"but its down to 5 copies at Amazon so click now."

I LOVE pointing this stuff out, but only because I'm a jerk.

As far as the post itself goes, I can only say that's it's probably a good thing I'm too damn lazy to write all those novels I want to write.

Your blog still rocks the Casbah.

Thank you for the introduction of the book. It's a book I will definitely purchase.

I appreciate the fact that you've worked on it.

Had any chocolate chip cookies to go with a drink (like milk or silk if you're not tolerant of milk) and a good book lately? :-D
