The Fat Jew Controversy
As a writer, plagiarism is a thing that concerns me. I worry about straight up theft of my words, my ideas. Sharing is one thing, but removing the creator's name and acting like you wrote it? Created it? Nope. Watching to see how this all plays out. Most interested in the potential for consequences or will we as a society be all, "meh." Update: He responds.

Seriously, she's awesome. As an author I can only hope to create a world so deep and realistic that we can talk about it for years and years and not have covered it all.
Pricing Your E-Book
Cut me some slack if you know all this. I'm a newbie and still absorbing it all. I found this interesting since it's more than just, "see what others in your genre do." That's in there, but the word count and page count thing were pretty interesting.
Data and Books
I cringed a little reading this. I get it, our society now has new and improved ways to track readers and books and engagement and so on. But I'm an old codger and I don't like it. I need to read more about this and kind of sit with it I guess. Would you ever let data dictate how you write?
This is an old one, but I came across it this week doing e-book research. I love novel length work, but making money sounds good, too. I really liked the idea of writing a couple of short stories as back story to the current novel project. Next question: where to get that critiqued?
I think this is awesome.
