Protip, selfpub advocates. Free from me to you.
Whenever you make a post likening traditional publishing’s relationship with its authors to either, a) and abusive marriage, b) a harem, c) the r-word-no-not-that-one-you-know-which-one-I-mean, or d) some variant thereof?
Every time you do that, a tradpub author sells a book.
Seriously. Stop it. Sexual abuse and domestic violence are not appropriate “colour” for your whining about New York. (And don’t think I don’t notice that it’s almost always male selfpub advocates who make these statements, either.)
