I did a thing…

Somewhere between these two is my sweet spot…

I spent my precious writing time tonight designing some new logos. I like the one in the middle.

He doesn’t use the word, but two things are clear, he’s talking about misandry, and he doesn’t hate women… http://m.wired.com/geekdad/2012/06/brave-is-bad-storytelling/

more reasons for self publishing…

i wouldn’t sneeze at the offer of a $50k advance…but that would be a mighty large pay cut…even for me…

Conveying news of latest rejection, agent mentions we’ll be lucky to get $50,000; explains, “Publishers aren’t overpaying anymore. They know they’ll just break even if they pay $50,000 and sell 20,000 copies in hardcover, which few books ever do.”

I realize if I’m “overpaid” I’ll earn $50,000 minus $7,500 agent commission. That’s $42,500 for three years’ work.

either way, this is a pretty devastating look at how authors get treated by the publishing business…and just another piece of evidence as to why i think self-publishing is a better option…
