Dear Ms. MaryJanice Davidson:
So I was at the Half Price Bookstore yesterday and was browsing through the $1.00 bin. There was a romance book there proclaiming to be by New York Times Bestselling Author so and so (see I can’t even remember her name today). I looked at the copyright date: 1980s. Hadn’t ever heard of the author. She obviously still isn’t a) writing or b) writing books on the NYT list. I hope she saved up some royalty money from those heydays because she certainly isn’t still making money on the writing gig today.
Moral of the story. Don’t be so bloody cocky (I don’t think I need to say which comment, but just in case: 109 posted on 05/14 at 12:00 PM by MaryJanice Davidson). This effen stupid reader who can’t read will still be buying books and pretending to read in 10 years. Will you still be pretending to write?
