the man’s got a point…

all i can say is i can’t wait to have these kinds of problems…

“What really burns me, though, is hearing the constant plea to support independent bookstores, while those same independents don’t support writers from independent publishers, i.e., me. I’ve had two independents in town tell me point blank that they will not carry my books. Why? I don’t know. It can’t be because of the critical response, which was positive for both, especially The Contortionist’s Handbook. It can’t be due to sales. Though I’m light years from being a household name, the Handbook is the living definition of that business buzzword du jour, “long tail.” It continues to move in small but steady increments, slowly gathering a wider and wider audience.”
