Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

Boycott*

I'm going on a boycott. Never again will Bowdlerize & Nadir get any money from me. This nationwide chain had the audacity to refuse to order several books for me.

I almost understood their refusal to order a POD book. Almost. When they refused to order some books from authors that were through a publishing house, I flipped. I was told that since their warehouse was out-of-stock that they were not going to order more. Why? Because they only will order in bulk.

I don't give a rat's patootie. I'm the customer and I am always right when I'm the customer. Especially when I am willing to pay in advance. Yes, yes, I realize that they must turn a profit. (Border's has ordered POD and out-0f-stock items for me.) Since when do they get to tell me that I can't buy something? That I should read Mr. I. N. Fodump or Mrs. C. C. Plot because they are "much better authors." Bullshit. Remember America? I choose. Not Mrs. Logup Theass.

I have this nasty habit of buying books authored by not-so-well-known or unknown writers. What can I say? I like broad horizons. I like shiny new books. I like being able to say that I have almost as many authors in my humble collection as I do books. Period. Remember it's my money.
