Comment on Why Brilliant Books is offering refunds to customers who purchased Go Set A Watchman by Iola http://www.thepassivevoice.com/08/2015/why-brilliant-books-is-offering-refunds-to-customers-who-purchased-go-set-a-watchman/#comment-317603 Wed, 05 Aug 2015 08:00:46 +0000 http://www.thepassivevoice.com/?p=64250#comment-317603 I saw Grey was on sale on Kindle for 99c last week, so it’s obviously not doing the “keeping afloat” job as well as predicted.

Oh, dear. How sad. Never mind.

A. I lounge on a couch and eat chocolate truffles. My reward after I finish writing for the day.
Hugh: Thanks for another insightful article. You always tell it like it is.

Comment on Improving Traditional Publishing by Smart Debut Author http://www.thepassivevoice.com/08/2015/improving-traditional-publishing/#comment-317598 Wed, 05 Aug 2015 04:16:05 +0000 http://www.thepassivevoice.com/?p=64267#comment-317598 Not at all — I bet you nailed the reply-to perfectly. But when one deletes a post, I think all replies threaded directly below it get bumped up to the top level.

G’s a super-valuable contributor here — I wonder if he or she is the same person as gniz on Konrath’s site.

I was sort of pontificating a bit. Something I’ve been thinking about when reading all the puppy stuff.

I think I shall delete. It was a bit too much. G doesn’t deserve that.

EDIT: Oopse. Looks like I screwed up the ‘reply to’ indentations. I made a rambling post about the mind set of trolls that was unfair to G and I deleted it. Obviously I’m still working out this internet thing. :-(

The way I read it, G was just chuckling at an Anonymous callout that mischaracterized his/her usual thought-provoking commentary, followed by a reference to him/her categorically crying in his/her beer.

Can’t say as I’ve noticed any difference with other drinks.

I’d definitely give that a try…

I know more than you? Well, yeah, that’s just me being honest…
