That’s right, do your dangdest, come up with a the most creatively bad cover letter you can, post it to this Livejournal’s comments sections (No LJ needed, you can login with other services.) and that’s it. Several of last years had me laughing four an hour.

The names have been changed to protect well, no one It was just fun to do. I thought after the delightful weekend battle of the titans, that the publishing industry could use a slightly more amusing bit of nonsense to talk about. Friend: You deal with writers, right?

This is the type of horrifically hard work I have to do. The ladies are the fabulous lady author Julie Cochrane with the dark hair, and the future marine Kate J with the light.

I booked my flight today, I’ll be there for the whole con, and most of the next day. I also managed to get my bio sent in so I may actually have to do some work while there. How many others are going?

I’m pretty sure I mentioned once or twice that I’d be at Ravencon this weekend. I know it says so on my website. Now I just wish real life hadn’t gotten in the way of getting ready for the con until tonight. A well… I’ll be looking at some of the slush this weekend as […]

I have no idea if half of the people i know in the area are here. At this time of the day I only know that I’m here because my name tag said so. There seem to be less people people here than last year, and it also seems slightly better organized, both are acceptable. […]

World Fantasy Con is it’s usual, quietly bustling self, replete with the industries name players. L. E. […]

The first is a link to something every writer, editor, and agent should be required to read yearly. http://ww3.telerama.com/~joseph/cooper/cooper.html The second is a review and critical analysis of a history on American foreign policy since the end of the Cold […]
