  2. Great post. I think one other issue that the lesfic community has that, I assume, mainstream authors/publishers don’t have is that readers are very close to the authors. We’re a tiny community, really, and we can see this clearly when an author’s work – not the author as a person but the work – is criticized. The reviewer/blogger/reader/whomever is many time swarmed by that author’s fans. Sometimes, they’re incited by the author, which I think is a terrible thing.

    I have to admit that I’ve not read any of your work – but I’ll see about correcting that situation.

  3. I appreciated your comments. After all, your blog, your opinions. Art is always a subjective area where there can never really be a best or worse. Sadly, like so many other things, publishing is a market driven area. Statistically we know that commercial fiction(esp. romance)makes it possible for publishers to put out literary fiction.

    Even the healthiest diet includes potato chips, on occasion.

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    • Ah – Barrett – there are good quality, real potato chips and there are also really crap extruded potato-style substance chips … as an argument that doesn’t stack up!

    • Very good points. You’re right. I just wish the market was driven by more intelligent readers. 🙂 I always get accused of being elitist when I say things like that, but I’m big on education and intelligence, and I’m afraid, not very tolerant of ignorance and shallowness. It shows perhaps a little too much sometimes. Thanks for your comment!

  4. The levels of irony here are making me feel quite rusty…but then you write “9 out of 10 of them were awful” and I have to wonder whether you are being too too generous???

    • sometimes it does seem that’s generous, but i wanted to give myself a little padding from raging bitch status. LOL
