I just spent the better part of my day sparring with Yahoo and hosting the Excerpt O Rama day at the EC Reader Board.
Dude, that was really a lot of fun. We had a shitload of excerpts and prizes and it kept hopping even when yahoo wouldn’t let me on the damned board for several hours so I had to post blind.
In August we’re doing a De-lurk day and we hope to do other things to get more folks to the board and posting, authors and readers both. I have to say I was bowled over by the level of participation from authors who sent me excerpts and donated prizes.
And well, EC readers are just the best. How can I complain about people who spend their days goofin off and hanging out for LM days?
I want to say all of this because well, it’s true but also to point out that this is the kind of thing that’s the norm. Not fights, not a divide, but this fun and celebration.
Here’s the KNOCK IT OFF PORTION OF OUR PROGRAM:
Knock it off. That is all. This can’t go anywhere postive for any of us. Just stop it now before sides start forming and it goes wrong for everyone, readers and authors alike.
