The Doldrums

Hi there Type M fans. I have absolutely no idea what to write today, so I'm dipping in to my fund of comics that deal with the book industry. I hope you enjoy it. And I promise to think ALL WEEK about a truly great, eye-opening and memorable topic for next week's blog!

Funnily enough .... I was at a book signing and someone asked a fellow author to sign the leather cover of her Kindle!

Just heard yesterday of a new app that allows an author to do exactly that - put a 'signature' on someone's kindle version! Will seek out the source.

Told you all this was a topical cartoon. I'm waiting to hear from Margaret Atwood to tell us all about her LongPen (or whatever it's called). The whole world is changing, isn't it?

Glad my meagre offering has generated a few responses!

Loved this, Rick.
The cartoon strip I have on my pinboard shows Snoopy at his typewriter. 'Gentlemen, Regarding the recent rejection slip you sent me. I think there must have been a misunderstanding. What I really wanted was for you to publish my manuscript and send me fifty thousand dollars. Didn't you realise that?'
So glad you reminded us of the brilliance of catoonists.
