Where Miss Snark vented her wrath on the hapless world of writers and crushed them to sand beneath her T.Rexual heels of stiletto snark. The blog is dark--no further updates after 5/20/2007.
Good Gawd, MS!You've given me 7 different Crap-O-Meter postings to afflict! How is a poor lunatic nitwit like myself to make any decision!You've finally innoculated yourself against me Miss Snark... I'm dithering now... dithering... dithering...JPD (ebbing back towards the dank and musty blog-o-sphere from whence he came...)
Take a chill pill gang. The crap o Meter is just edu-tainment.Submit, read, bleed, learn and laugh. Miss Snark even tells us in her FAQ, she never uses these.Inhale and type: Z-E-NWe shall all live to publish another day.
PLEASE READ:I have really bad news for you all.I just received my author information packet from my publisher and started to fill it out.GUESS WHAT THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT ASKED FOR?"Please write 200 -250 words to help us describe your novel to others"(sound of screaming ... pounding feet...head banging)It never ends...
But Orion, you should be in good shape because you polished your hook for the crap-o-meter? ::ducking and running::I may have to submit several versions...I don't know. Short and sweet, or the full 250?Ah, decisions, decisions. ;)You didn't think they'd hire someone to write the back jacket copy, did you?? LOL
Gads, I swear, I think Miss Snark is in cahoots with my travel agent. I was thrilled to discover I'd be home to submit my hook. Now, I find out if she wants to read the first few pages (750 words) they will have to be submitted by Sunday. I'll be in Jamacia, then Mexico, then the Caman Islands. I won't be home until the 23rd. Banging head against keyboard.CJ
CJ- are your 750 words done? Perhaps find someone who can monitor the blog and send the 750 on your behalf, if it's requested?
Ah, that is the big "IF," huh? If it's requested. I'll see if one of my online friends will do that for me. Thanks,CJ
