Novelist ditches publisher at book launch for 'condescending' treatment

Novelist ditches publisher at book launch for 'condescending' treatment

if there is one thing I like about the relationship I share with both my editor and cover artist is respect. It is also the one thing I think many publishing companies lack towards their authors.

In the end, I think the real reason why we writers write in the first place is to earn respect. Money, and fame maybe great if we lack respect then what is the point?

I am guessing I have started something

CW’s ‘The Secret Circle’ Premieres Tonight, Guess The Ratings (Poll) - Ratings | TVbytheNumbers

Maybe its because they have milked the vampire thing dry but ever since I started promoting tales of aradia there has a been a rise in witch propaganda. I like to believe that i came up with the idea first but I think Alan Ball (the creator of true blood) is giving me a real run for the money.
I am glad I was able to turn this into an idea but there are numerous things I have to deal with and I am not looking forward to it.

1. Witchcraft is a religion and religion in addition to politics are the most loaded and likely to shed blood topics ever created.
2. I am hoping the people who practice witchcraft and paganism wont hex me
3. I am also hoping my fellow church members and family wont crucify me.
(In case you are wondering yes I am a Christian. A Lutheran to be precise.)
4. most of all, i am hoping that this will be able to satisfy everyone involved. Meaning getting recognition for me, my cover artist, and my editor.

either way though, I am playing this out but doing it my way. That is what my parents always praise me for, I dont think inside the box. I actually think about the diameters and how I can play off the dimensions.

P.S. yes i have watched this show. it doesnt seem so bad but they never do at first.

My editor and his wife are having a baby!

Yes it is true! My editor Harrison J. Bradlow and his wife Amy Bradlow are expecting a child. The irony is one month ago I asked him if he and his wife had any children. At the time he had said no but he and Amy were hoping that would change soon. Funny how life is huh?
Photo above is their baby! its probably too early to tell but I am hoping it will be a girl! maybe they will name it Aradia. Aradia Bradlow has a pleasant ring to it.

so congrads to my editor Harry and his wife Amy and their future bundle of joy!

Are there too many books?

Some people believe that the reason no one can sell any books is because there is too many. Too many to read or market.

I think that's a pile of crap
