What is the worst thing you have ever thrown up?

Re: Social Networking - does it really work?

I would say so far the answer is "yes" And here is why. I have sold 207 copies of my self published book in 6 weeks. I asked anyone who has purchased a copy if they would take 2 minutes out of there life and post a short blurb of what they thought about the story (Good or Bad) on my facebook group p...

Re: New publishing services for POD authors -- CompletelyNovel

Re: Agenting needs to evolve

I don't think it was ever intended to be a secret that it's 15% of both advances and royalties--I always say 15% of an author's income or something along those lines, but I guess I can see how that might read ambiguously.

Re: What is your most favorite Broadway musical song?

I also like a few songs from Avenue Q...

The internet is for porn
If you were gay
It sucks to be me
