Hi there! This is a wake up call to everyone reading this here blog.
I’ve been blogging here about
Hitler Amazon, but I get the feeling I haven’t made the message clear.
The ebook market has changed. but we all have it in us to be strong and take responsibility.
Today, for instance, I woke up around 8:30 or so, and lay in bed feeling the horrible ache in my arm. The dystonia-affected arm.
But, I knew I had things to do, and I focused on doing them.
That included clearing out more crap, as part of this project. Ha ha ha … #iamfoolish
Let me tell you, I’m finding gold in there. I’m also realizing just how stupid I really was.
So … authors and readers, please stay strong. Don’t let
Hitler Amazon become the only publisher.
As consumers, readers need to make the right choices, too. All I’m asking is that readers make sustainable choices, so authors can run their businesses sustainably.
Otherwise, there will be no other choices, and authors will be reduced to sweatshop workers on Amazon’s mid-list.
Yeah. Some authors are more equal than others. Ha ha ha …
That’s why I’ll be using crowdsourcing to distribute print editions of all my Sam McRae mysteries.
Along with all the other retailers, including Amazon, Amazon UK, B&N/Nook, Smashwords, et al., So, I’m giving readers the maximum choice of where and how to buy my books, regardless of device they own.
BTW, I wrote more words today on my young adult novel. Awesome!
And I spent time on my porch talking to my husband. I wanted to use the time to be with him, instead of constantly at my computer
despite my tortured hand.
He thinks I look pale. Well, maybe I should get out more.
Okay, maybe a little pale, but I’m happy. And that’s what counts.
We also talked about how we used to go camping. He thinks we’ll probably never go again, just because of this.
That hand looks sooo terrible, people don’t even notice how I’m clenching my toes. Constantly. Fun!
So … I told my husband not to give up on the idea of camping. I think I can do it. We’ll see. I hope we go.
In fact, after we got back from our trip, I got to thinking about products that could be developed to ease travel for
the disabled differently abled impaired gimps like me. Ha ha ha …
The project could be funded through crowdsourcing.
Well … it’s an idea, anyway. And that’s where all great things start. Am I right?
On that note, here’s some cool stuff from the Interwebs:
Knock, knock, motherfuckers! Ha ha ha …
Brava! Go for the gold.
Remember this? Ha ha ha … #iamfoolish
Wa-a-ay more than Columbo.
Is this like The Accidental Tourist? Ha ha ha …
There, I’ve said it. Ha ha ha …
Ha ha ha … Sorry, Alec Guinness, but that was too good to pass up.
So … more songs? Why not. Sing while you can and dance, too.
I’ll sleep when I’m dead.

And thank you,
Hitler Amazon for making it so easy to sell ebooks in the UK. But there’s Kobo now, isn’t there?
And I found Paul through this blog.
And my husband totally prefers me to Ann Coulter. Ha ha ha …
