The winners of the Bare Bone Dig Your Own Grave contest should be announced today and I’m anxiously awaiting the results. Actually I already know the winners but you don’t so you should be the one in suspense! The results will be posted here: http://www.myspace.com/bareboneantho whenever they’re posted.
I love the internet and I love to hate it. There’s no way we could have RDSP if it wasn’t for the internet, or at least no one would know about it. However, sometimes it feels like screaming at the top of your lungs all the time and no one even blinks. Trying to spread the word about all these great authors can really wear you down. There’s more legwork in this word-of-mouth advertising than the name suggests.
That’s why I really appreciated this comment that a reviewer made to me in an email, “You are definitely the most passionate and professional of the smaller presses that I’ve dealt with. I love that you’re not afraid to take on uncategorizable books with powerful writing and find them good homes.”
