Mystalic on Can you publish a book through a company if you have already self-published it through Amazon? -
"This is poor advice in my opinion for a few reasons: 1) You can only sell book rights piecemeal when you have leverage. You're Tina Fey or James Patterson? You can do what you want! But a first-time author with no audience? Holding back rights is very unrealistic. 2) None of the big publishers want a book that's already out. It is so so rare. It kills their sales and potential leverage in marketing and media." - Ben Parr

RT @meghann: at least this is officially the worst first half in Bears history and I'm not just overreacting.
Stopped watching the Packers vs. Junior Varsity Practice Squad game. There’s only so much abuse a person can take.
Welp, it’s time to root for the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Bears just are no match for the Packers. This makes me depressed.
