Attention Robocallers, I Already Voted, Please Die Now

I think they're both about to achieve Super Saiyan.

A damn good interview with Erika Moen went up the other day, and you should watch it (part 1, part 2) because she (that would be Moen) tells a story that needed to be told. It’s a story about a printing company (which she graciously does not name, but is not Transcontinental, about which Moen has nothing to say but good things) that screwed her (again, Moen) sideways on the first printing of her book.

This leads to certain questions that you should ask your printer, including, After accepting my book, will individual employees that decide they don’t like my content be able to veto actually printing the damn thing? and If you have to shift this to a Canadian plant so that I can make deadline, and it costs more because of your actions, will you be holding my books hostage until I pay more than we originally contracted for? The whole thing is good, but that section (near the end of part one) is crucial.

  • Aw, poo. Looks like I missed something for a few weeks now. See, the “fold” of the Planet Karen website falls right below the comic (on my monitor, at least), so I hadn’t seen the newspost that falls below the fold. Seems like the long-awaited first PK book is now available, and I hadn’t known, so I am very late in sharing this news with you. Sorry. You can go here to buy it (warning: the store uses scary monetary units called “pounds sterling”, which are totally not dollars at all; don’t be nervous, you can still buy the book).

[…] behind me (working from home rules), and to my knowledge, hasn’t been involved in any of the screw-the-creator incidents (cough, the former Quebecor) that have reportedly plagued self-publishers. In fact, the only […]
