I was going to blog about Net Neutrality but I got home late from a couple’s baby shower where everyone drank but the mother to be. There’s some kind of cruelty in that. My Net Neutrality piece is in pieces and not fit for public consumption and I lack the perspicacity to blog with any intelligence.
Dear Author is offering up an ad space for Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Auction. It is a one day auction taking place on May 17, 2008. We are aren’t doing ads, we are just doing it for this charity event (and the winner of DA BWAHA) so it is a unique opportunity.
- Amazon readers are still being harassed. Steve Hedge, who just surpassed the 1600 reviewer mark, got the Reba Belle treatment in that all his comments were deleted and he can no longer post reviews. It’s completely unfair.

The romance v. porn debate is going on at Karen Knows Best.
- A new publisher warning is Kira Takenouchi who formed Yaoi House. I’ll post more information tomorrow.
P.S. Happy Mother’s Day
