Two observations about the book biz this week:
1. It's difficult to feel sorry for writers who are
a) miserable while in Hawaii
b) miserable while on publisher-funded book tours
c) miserable while "cranking out" a single book per year that will get more publicity, backing and print runs than an average midlist author's entire backlist received.
2. Writing synopses and pitching them to other, miserable writers' editors is more productive, not to mention more lucrative, than writing impolitic online rants.
Floor is open for questions: what's on your mind this week?
