Quill and Feather Pub [Public] / Re: 50+ words a day...no matter what!

Important question since I'm avoiding writing today. What's bigger an ROUS or a womp rat?


Probably a womp rat, but I wouldn't want to mess with either species up close.   :icon_eek:

Dan, picture the older pilot chanting, "Stay on target," as they're coming up on the wombat-sized widget that they have to blow on the Death Star. Besides, 3k is pretty good. :)


It's not impossible.  I used to bulls-eye womp rats in my T-16 back home.  They're not much more than two meters.

@David

Oh, actually that is the point. By changing the price you ended up with two groups of costumers with two different prices at the same time. So different people would pay different prices but that is the thing that's not allowed to happen when your book is price-bound.

What you could do is to have one price only for pre-orders. So when costumers want to have the lower price they would have to pre-order it. Once the book is published, it would sell with Price B (the higher one).

There is an oversupply of good writers.

Maybe, but when I watch new movies and TV-series...
Remakes, reboots, remakes, reboots, reboots' remakes, remakes' reboots...
And many of them are much worse than originals...

Good screenplay writers are a bit different from good genre fiction writers (what I really meant when I talked about an oversupply). Also, the decision as to what to produce, rather than the actual script, is almost never within the purview of the writer. A raft of people other than the writer make all those decisions, except in the unusual case where the writer has more control, such as with Babylon 5, where JMS wrote and controlled nearly everything. That's unusual, though. Most of the time, the screenplay writers are repeatedly clubbed into the boxes the directors and producers want them in--to my knowledge.

Is Denzil/Dalton a successful trad pubbed author who was trying to go hybrid? Did Mallory think no one in trad pub would notice a (semi)self-pubbed ebook?

As far as I know Sarah Dalton started self-publishing YA and then moved into psychological thrillers where she had tremendous success, so this wouldn't have been a case of subbing the manuscript. She made a brief comment about this in a FB group and the thought was that he might have seen the book after she published it and used the published book as the basis for his own. This would've been at a time when her other psychological thriller was in the top 20 on Amazon so highly visible.
