*****Then there's the most appalling thing I've seen in a long time the Clean Reader App
A day later after reading the post above and a lot of posts about that app I read the ones below and can't help feeling happy about it. I mean how is it okay to change an artist's work? Could someone get away with changing the words of a song? Would musicians stand for that? Then there's painters and sculptors. How about someone chips off or paints over what offends them on a work of art?
Yay for Smashwords. I'd already pulled my catalogue from Page Foundry, because NO, people don't get to change what I write.
Another down to earth post about the app is from Indie author Tammy Smith.

Just want to say this, please do not buy my books and use this app on them. It's a breach of copyright to change the words I've written, had edited, and published by reputable publishers.
*****In an effort to determine if I should write in a different sub genre of romance this week, I searched out what appear to be the best stats on what sub genre has sold best. The article uses 2014 figures naturally, and it will be interesting to see if this changes when figures are reviewed next year for 2015.
Article: from Romance Writers of America
From the article (go read the rest it's good info)
Looks like I need to stop writing paranormal romance
So April dawned and I received the latest blog post from Mark Coker of Smashwords.............
I have to admit for the first half of this post I believed it and then ... I thought greedy Amazon isn't going to have spent the huge amounts of money it would take to do this LOL Skipped to the end to discover it's a an April fool joke from the very clever Mark Coker, even so, I hope no millionaire wizard software writer reads it.
