Well, I know it sounds funny -
I ain’t in it for a pile of dimes.
I just want a best-seller,
Wanna see it in the New York Times.
Want a best-seller, yeah.
I’m gonna be an Overnight Sensation.
Thanks, and perhaps apologies, to:
And if you wonder what on Earth I’m talking about [...]
Contracts for my epic fantasy novel THE DINOSAUR LORDS have arrived from Tor. Now I have the read them!
Quick – don’t think of a rhinoceros!
Especially not, Gods forbid, a purple one.
Yeah, it’s trite. Also true. It’s hard.

First, though: enjoy the swell cartoon above, courtesy of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Thanks to haikubica for turning me onto SMBC when [...]
