"I want to perform an unnatural act."

- Lenny Bruce



"I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don't like anything in the mainstream and they don't like me."

- Bill Hicks



"I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."

-George Carlin



"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

- John Lennon

REBLOG: Is STGRB celebrating kobo no longer carrying indie authors?

Reblogged from here: http://donealrice.booklikes.com/post/613927/post

 

I'm just now seeing that like W.H. Smith, kobo is now also pulling indie books from their website.  Starting with a blog post from http://krazykiwi.booklikes.com/post/613364/kobo-now-pulling-self-pubbed-books-until-further-notice

 

Hurray for bba's and STGRB authors everywhere -- no one will ever bully you again with negative reviews or evil shelf/collection/wishlist names on those sites (and any bookseller or other sites using kobo for ebook distribution/data). You should now all feel safer ... now if you can just get goodreads and the 73 wannabe sites I found to stop allowing indie books or to stop reviewing, shelving and rating you negatively you will have won quite a victory. Yes, you have done the proverbial "throw out the baby with the bath water" and can rest free of any reviewer threats while you bask in your new 1-star ratings that successfully move your books up goodreads feature and search-result lists. I look forward to seeing the screenshots of your celebrations being shared about. You must all be so proud!

 

To the 99.99999% of the other indie authors, I am truly saddened for the opportunities those speshul snowflakes have lost you.
