I was recently sent an invitation to the Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference. I am happy to promote the event to anyone interested and I note that many erotic romance epublishers are already listed as attending.
Will I be there? Frankly, no. I am very bah-humbug about the phenomenon of members of a community paying money (in this case a $20 fee) to have access to each other through free-to-use venues like Ning. The joy of the internet is that most of these people are easy to find online for free.
And the one large publisher represented, Simon & Schuster, is on my naughty list for having a shocking record when it comes to author exploitation (rights grabs etc). (As for Lori Perkins, no comment).
But if anyone here is going, I would encourage you to send me a guest post about how it goes. I am probably just being too goddam cynical. Mid-American winters have that effect on me....
