Some great reading I’ve been doing lately that’s really made me think.
Freedom not to choose is a faith worth believing in – discussion of Britain as a state-religion-less society. Not sure I agree 100% (I mean, their anthem is still literally God Save The Queen), but it’s definitely an interesting concept.
Welcome to The Matrix: You Work for FREE & There IS No Payday – For writers, the first in a series of posts about why working for ‘exposure’ is madness, unless you’re in control of said exposure. Some nuggets in here even for people who think they already have a handle on the concept of exposure.
Hundreds of mysterious stone ‘gate’s found in Saudi Arabia’s desert – Google Earth reveals structures some 2000 – 9000 years old, and we basically have no idea at this point what they were used for. IDK about you, but this smacks of plot bunnies to me 😉
Book Review for All The Crooked Saints – I’m hanging out to read this one since Maggie Stiefvater is one of my favourite authors, but I want to wait until I have guaranteed uninterrupted time – which means it might not be for another 5 weeks when school lets out. In the meantime, I’m satiating myself with reviews.
Has the Smart-Phone Destroyed A Generation? – a long read but definitely interesting. A balanced discussion of the psychological effects, both positive and negative, that we are seeing in the rising generations who have been born essentially with a smart screen in their hands.
Pricing Silliness and Learning A Lesson – another one for authors on how pricing seems to be working in 2017, which is quite a bit different to how it worked three years ago. This one has prompted a revamp of Inkprint Press’s pricing policies, which is good for you guys, because many of my paperbacks are now significantly cheaper 😉
