Tuesday's post:

Long Haired Freaky People Need Not Apply

Talk of bad haircuts and characterization.

Is characterization-via-hair lazy, or tapping into something more archetypical?

Yesterday, John Locke was announced as the eight author to sell 1 million Kindle e-books, and the first self-publisher. On the same day, he released a new book, How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months!

I bought the book, and read it. It might not be what you think. Here's my take:

One of the many things that fascinate me about digital publishing are the new possibilities afforded to writers. Traditionally, publishing has been wary of all sorts of stuff – short novels, short stories, longer novels, novellas, and poetry.

However, the rise of digital publishing combined with the ability of the author to go direct to retailers such as Amazon (or even sell direct to the reader) has opened up new possibilities for writers.

Today, I got a chance to speak to digital poet and fantasy novelist Stephen Drennon, who is enjoying this new freedom to experiment with all kinds of things.

Seriously, people. Follow that link. It's 9:47 am and for some obscure reason (3 hours of sleep, I'll bet) I'm crying. I blame you, Sommer. :P
