A great link

During my forced absence from blogging, it looked like some author named Rob Thurman got too excited about her upcoming book and momentarily confused herself with Adam Lambert, urging her fans to buy the book on the release date, telling Canadians that they have to buy TWO COPIES to qualify for some exclusive goodies, and such. I personally find the whole thing pretty amusing, but some people are not amused. But maybe we'll talk about authors who can't outgrow their fanfiction roots another day.

This brings me to some timely links: Stacia Kane as usual gets on her groove and comes up with some really interesting blog entries about the relationship between authors and readers. Go read this one http://www.staciakane.net/2010/03/02/on-sales/ and this one as well http://www.staciakane.net/2010/03/05/libraries/
