{pout} I like gerunds (well, casting a quick mental eye over my work makes it clear even to me that I do) But then, grammar was never a strong suit with me... nor spelling, nor - now I think about it - punctuation... oh dear :)

On the bright side, as long as the story's good, everything else is fixable, right? :)

Rachelle Gardner's is a nice balm to rejection, and Jenn Laughran's is informative. "I'm Outraged!" was--fascinating. I tend to think the FTC will be interested in such projects; I can envision this sort of thing becoming more common.

Re: 'I'm Outraged'

I agree. Product placement is one thing, but infomercials are quite another, especially if they're done in a deceptive way.
