Friday fuds.

There must be a "Pain of Death" injunction for Hunger Games, since I know they've already had a "premiere" and there have been no reviews. What are they afraid of?

But, like I said, I'm not going to speculate anymore.

It's not like I'm not going to go see it.

(O.K. they are starting to trickle out. Mostly positive.)


Cash mobs? Descending on small businesses?


Hey, good idea! I wonder who we could target? Let see...a small business, maybe in downtown Bend, selling nice things.

Who could we pick?

Someone who sells fun stuff, or good stuff (like books -- books are good, right?)

So.....who should we descend upon?

Ah, hem.


When I finished my manuscript of I'M ONLY HUMAN, I still hadn't read about 5 chapters at writer's group. Since then, I've read 2 of those chapters, and they pretty much shredded them.

Methinks I've still got work to do.


I have assembled a huge book order.

I've been very patient over the last 2.5 months, ordering only moderate amounts of books.

Almost all the books on the order are either books I have already sold before or books I'm pretty positive I can sell in the future. I always try to add a classic author, who I then keep in stock. This time, it's Saul Bellow, and adding to Dostoevsky.

Bringing in all the Terry Goodkind books, some more of the Patrick O'Brien books, and so on.

I think it's working.
