M. K. Theodoratus, Fantasy Writer, blogs about the books she reads--mostly fantasy and mystery authors whose books catch her eye and keep her interest. Nothing so formal as a book review, just chats about what she liked. Theodoratus also mutters about her own writing progress or ... lack of it.

Writer Rip-Offs and More Pleasant Topics

So ... you've written your book The edits are done.  What's going to happen next?  Chances are you you're going to get ripped off -- one way or another. And no. It's just not my permission saying so.

The IndieReader posted a guest blog by Coral Russell: Ripping Off Authors: Let Us Count the Ways.

End of Public Announcement.

Think I'm neck deep in edits for There Be Demons
My tongue is sticking out
My face is turning blue

Was surprised when that rhymed. Don't think of myself as a poet though I've been known to write Bad Haiku on occasion.Even have a draft of a novel hidden in my laptop ... if it got transferred. I'm finding some stuff didn't in spite of the sales person's promises.

Have some "guilty pleasures" I want to blog about ... but the next week has my nose to the grindstone. [Do you think it'll get smaller? Maybe neat and dainty. .... Nah.]

Am posting this so people will know where I'm hiding the coming week. Somehow I've got 20 chapters to edit. Don't think I'm going to do it. 

Maybe it's a good thing I don't have an agent.
They'd starve if they depended on me to eat and pay the rent, etc.
