I'd love you all, dear authonomy, to take a look at WHO is backing this book:
It's clear the guy toiled hard creating so many sock puppets all these years, and now he's pushing the book towards the editor's desk.
I wonder if it's fair to the those writers who spent hours, days and months trying to reach the desk.
Any thoughts? Posted: 17/06/2012 07:15:28Last Edit: 17/06/2012 12:44:50 by fatum
The thing is, I used to back this book, but not anymore. Posted: 17/06/2012 07:17:44
Yep. My thought is, why would anyone give a shit? <nolink></nolink>I think the 94 writers positioned before 47 M think differently! Posted: 17/06/2012 07:19:28

Probably. Some people think there's a god. Doesn't answer my question. Posted: 17/06/2012 07:21:00
Wow, that is insane. Posted: 17/06/2012 07:22:12
You used to back the book but not anymore. So you thought it was good but now it isn't? Posted: 17/06/2012 07:23:18
The beginning was good, but why back a loser who can't do it the proper way, huh? Posted: 17/06/2012 07:24:48

I read the first chapter and found the subject matter distasteful. Skimmed through a couple of others and found more of the same. Ergh. I would never buy it, so won't back it.
I did look at some of the many faceless backers – no avis, no friends, no books, no messages or comments, and just that one book on their shelves. Clearly getting to the ED is of paramount importance to the author. But from what I've seen, that prize is meaningless.
As I wrote in my coment, the HC review will be interesting.

The whole point is that being here has no meaning and no value. If he can write, he could probably get his book published anyway. This is a playground to keep wannabes off publishers' backs. Cheat or play fair, the whole process is just an illusion.
I tend to think that only reading people's books if they read yours is equally ludicrous, but it seems the norm.
