Lots of stuff happened in publishing this week (and I really wish some of it was an April Fools' joke). I'm not going to bore you with repeating it, but the following links are worth checking out:
Dorchester is allegedly selling books they do not have the rights to and apparently refuse to stop. Horror author Brian Keene called for a Dorchester boycott last week. This week, thriller author Stacy Dittrich made a public call for authors screwed over by Dorchester to contact her about a class-action suit she's putting together.
The fabulous Nina Cordoba and her God of Rock and Roll, Software Architecture, and Programming have put together an easy-to-understand guide for formatting your manuscript file for the Amazon Kindle and the B&N Nook.
NWHRWA president and pirate goupie, Jenn Bray-Weber posted her thoughts on public meltdowns and dog piling over at Musetracks.
And author/guru J. A. Konrath is selling his technothriller Origin for $0.99 as a experiment. Joe plans to donate $500 to First Book, a very worthwhile charity, if fans help him break the Kindle Top 100.
And just one little tidbit I thought was rather poignant.
Remember, kids: Friends don't let friends respond to reviews in a public forum. EVAH!
