Recently, Smashwords, the largest distributor of independent eBooks, announced they had renegotiated their contracts with Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and Sony to follow the agency model instead of the wholesale model. When Amazon launched the Kindle a few years ago, they used the wholesale model which meant the publisher sold the book at a discount to Amazon, then Amazon would sell that book for whatever price they chose to consumers, usually at a loss. When Apple launched their iPad, they popularized
DAMON DANE'S RAGNAROK
Here ended the Book of Endings, the final book in the epic that was the Holy Tome.
Filled with a sense of foreboding, Gothia raised his eyes and looked at Stargard, haunted by a fear that they were standing on the brink of an apocalyptic cataclysm, and that a horrifying darkness would soon sweep down over them all.
‘For good or for ill, you and I have been born into the Dark Ages,’ Stargard said, ‘the Third Age,

Another night, another blanket
Early morning, because it really can be the best time of the day
Even the reindeer can't get out
If you compare with the same shot from yesterday you'll see how much more we got
Work closed, had to drive home in this.
A suddenly alien looking back garden
Think they'll trade cars for huskies?
Trees with snow on are mesmirising to look at.

I hear Republicans constantly complaining about the entitlements that our government has created for our citizens ruining America. They state their desire to cut these programs. My answer is that I will be willing to give up my entitlement when they are willing to give up theirs.
The GOP talks very loudly about unemployment, social security, and Medicare, but you hardly hear anything about golden parachutes or bonus payouts whether the company succeeds or fails. They are all
Why is it that every time I try to print something, it always. Always. ALWAYS. Involves rebooting the damn computer, failing twice to purge the thing that 'won't print' from the printer which somehow doesn't disappear unless you shut down the computer (restart is technically the same thing, yet it doesn't work) and then, after all that, the original thing prints?
Why is that?
Well, Minnesota got hit with the fifth biggest snow event in history on Friday-Saturday.
I've finally gotten us cleared out as of nine pm Sunday. ANd I had to use the wheelbarrow to haul snow to the front yard since the driveways with the neighbor are against each other. Only five wheelbarrow loads needed and you can still see the wheelbarrow molded hunks in the front snowbanks.
Very happy that the snow started Friday after we were all home and I had time to buy formula.
"They" say that without goals, we don't know whether we've gotten where we want to go. Having a goal of "finish The Wayfarer King" seems overwhelming, so I've decided to chunk it into smaller, more manageable goals. First goal: write 200 words per day, starting... today! I was going to type tomorrow, but why wait? Second goal: finish the first draft by... Feb 14! I think I can do that. Pretty sure. After that, I'll have a better idea where I want to go with the story, so the

Hello SFFWorld and SF fans,
I've been a science fiction fan my whole life, starting at a very early age with movies and then spreading to books. As an outspoken teenager, I started writing songs and became vocalist in the early 90s. My job and my hobbies have revolved around the SF/Fantasy world over the past 7+ years, and after starting work on AKTIYA in 2006, the first installment (The Ignition Sequence) is now available. We filmed a live-action trailer, which can be viewed at

Astronomy pictures always give me that sense of being shown how small I am in the scale of things, and the latest pic from NASA is one of my favourites.
And to think that this is just one....
The detail on this image is brilliant, too.
Hope you're as impressed as I am!
DAMON DANE'S RAGNAROK
Then the darkrons marched out into the world once again. Their realm of Gehenna was sealed off from Xanadu by the Dragonís Back Mountains, but their slithering scouts discovered three hidden Shadowgates where they could pass through that mighty range. The first of these lay far to the north, through the Caves of Shadow and into the mines of Endoth Deep, beneath the frozen mountains of Ursa. The second Shadowgate was to follow the melting glacier down through

Well, I'm probably the last man alive to read Flashforward, but it was worth the wait. The ending was certainly a bit fantastic, but I enjoyed it. Right up my alley.
