As always, a great collection of posts. Thanks, Jon. You always catch things I miss, and send me to them.

Hehe,I sent it via Jig. Hasn't he passed it on to you?

I thought you made an excellent point. In all the excitement of the launch of this or that E-reader, it's easy to forget that most folks will probably never use (much less own) one - whether because of money or personal preference.

Thanks for sharing, Julie :)

I thought it was clever, but I try not to include any posts which include the 'f' word.

Call me a prude, but I don't think it's needed in blog entries where writers are writing about writing (if that makes sense).

LOL, I didn't even notice honestly. And I can understand that.

Oooo! So many about ebooks. I'm considering asking for a Kindle for my birthday. I'm just not sure I want one!

Yeah, it's fair to say that, ever since I got that E-book contract, I'm finding electronic publishing a much more interesting subject :)

I imagine it must be! Ooh...and the only way I'm going to get to read Fur-face is if I have an e-reader, huh??

I'm still trying to get a print contract, and the E-book version won't be out until late next year, so there's plenty of time to make a decision :)

Woohooo small sparkles to spare your eyes!

That would be so awesome!

Wendy Delmater, our head Editor at Abyss & Apex, has a possibly-useful editorial this week on Writing Other Genders:

I think the Amazon faux pas had t a lot to do with the number of E-book related posts made this week :)
