Reality Revisions

It really doesn't help when the cardinals in Rome elect a pope whose life story matches that of the major bad guy in your novel.

  1. Your bad guy is Cliff from CHEERS?

  2. Ah yes, another curve ball...

    Wanted to take the time to say thanks for all the straight talk about the industry. Not many folks in the industry seem all that willing to be honest about it. I suppose its fear of some kind of backlash from saying anything negative. The cards are stacked against us writers so heavily that I believe many of us are scared. Scared for our books, for our careers and for our income (if any). Kind of puts the light out in the tower of truth.

    You keep that light burning for all of us that are still struggling with the beginning of things. Thanks for that.

    Cheers,

  6. Hey, you think that's bad, I've got a short satire circulating which paints the former Cardinal Ratzinger in a less than favorable light. I keep expecting an elite squad of Swiss Guard to spirit me away any day now, never to be seen again...
