(Posting this early as I'm going to be buried in work tomorrow)
One of you anonymous lurkers suggested having a giveaway, and since so many people are now interested in Touched by Venom by Janine Cross, I say let's do one for her book. Maybe we can cook up some new ideas on how to handle situations like these in a positive fashion, too.
In comments to this post, answer this question: Besides ignoring them, what do you think authors should do about snitfests over them and/or their work?
Post your comment before midnight EST on Friday, November 18, 2005. I'll draw ten names from everyone who participates*, and send the winners an unsigned copy of Janine Cross's Touched by Venom PLUS a surprise for being open-minded enough to give it a try. Names of the winners will be posted here at PBW by noon EST on Saturday, November 19, 2005.
*Add-on: Giveaway open to everyone on the planet; doesn't matter if you've won something before here at PBW.
