I am a raging beeeyotch. I don’t really like myself that way. So I’ll probably start downing more again. Strange, but I really thought I’d be more mellow. Maybe it’s just a withdrawal phase?
I’m finishing copyedits/revisions for Demon Bound (new beginning, new ending, various stuff throughout) which I have to mail out Wednesday, so I’m mostly missing from the blogosphere until then. Random stuff:
I found (and finished) High Noon. I brought home Koontz’s The Good Guy from my family reunion, and we’ll see how that works out. Although I love some of Koontz’s stuff (Watchers, Strangers, some others) not all of it is a hit for me.
Please don’t download e-books from piracy sites/message boards. IMO, piracy isn’t about trading/lending books with friends, or even printing out a copy so that your mom can read it. To me, those are fine, because there is a limit to the copies being made. What isn’t fine are those sites where you click on a link and get a file of my book(s) and/or a bundle of other books. Just, don’t. Please remember that if you want to try an author, most have excerpts online, so that you can get a feel for their style/story before you buy (or borrow from a library, or UBS, or whatever). I don’t have any objection to people getting my work for cheap/free through a legitimate distributor of that work. Those piracy sites aren’t legitimate distributors.
I really like Warren Ellis’s explanation of “Where ideas come from.” Although I can’t exactly say the result is the same (although the million nuns sound awesome) the start is: filling your head with all kinds of information, and letting it spark into life. But he says it all so much better.
