Bring and Brag / Re: My poem got published.

Publishing is only second to the mob in crime.

Just saying.

That said, I still find it a feat to get published ONLINE even.  *shrug*

Looking into options, it costs money to publish an Ebook...

Yes, an Ebook, a fucking PDF file will soak you like $300 from a "self-publishing" company. ;_;

I was reading a site today where they were like, "Watch out for those so-called self-publishing companies that will charge you outrageous fees for your book to barely get noticed. If you pay our DEPOSIT of $899, we will help you attain your goal of becoming a published author!"

I smacked my head into the desk, and went back to Google.

I'm actually having a hard time looking for a publisher right now that doesn't want $800 in their hand RIGHT NOW before even looking at the manuscript of my novel...And it's not even DONE yet! I just want a feel for the industry.

Aneristic Strife:

An internal subconscious conflict in which the orderly (left) side of the mind is conflicting with the desire or need of use of the chaotic (right) side of the mind.

Well a lot of people believed that since the Crusades were a Holy Pilgrimage, that they would be forgiven of all sins among other things. Stephen may have been a bit...unfaithful. Which was normal of course. You didn't love your wives, they were baby factories that you signed a treaty for. You fucked someone else's wife or raped peasant girls for pleasure.

Medieval humor ftw. Wives like that had a lot of nerve though. They weren't allowed to read or write, just pop out kids and order their husbands to an armed pilgrimage.

I think that's why my SCA persona is Italian Renaissance. I couldn't stand the idea of playing the part of a woman kept on a too-tight leash. Not that the Renaissance was much better, but it allowed women to at least become educated and perhaps run a business, and not just the Veronica Franco type of business, (though she was also a very accomplished writer).

I've started reading A Booke of Days again by Stephen J. Rivele. It's a chronicle of a knight during the 1st Crusade and is an actual translation of an existing journal.

No it's not.

I thought it was? The Prologue certainly makes it seem like it is.

Isn't RAW dying last I heard? Like...months left to live or something. His condition got really bad.

Erm, nm, looked it up myself:

From rawilson.com
Here's a quick history of Robert Anton Wilson's scenario. Bob has post-polio syndrome which has severely damaged his legs and weakened his body. He had a hard fall in June of this year which landed him in the hospital. He has since not been able to walk and is thus confined to his bed (overlooking beautiful Monterey Bay fnord), requiring 24 hour care. Due to Bob's acute weakness in June and July, many of his family and friends felt that Bob could go at any time. He has since rallied slowly with up's and down's, and like most things, his condition seems in the maybe state. Bob has no pain, has a hearty appetite, is in steady good, sharp humor and is surrounded by family and friends. Praise Bob! All hail Eris!
