View from study (sunny)

At least I don't write as badly as this woman

coneycat linked to this and then to this...

Oh, dear. Initially I felt some sympathy for the woman. Her web site made it sound like she was having fun with her novels and if she wants to self publish via Lulu, then why shouldn't she?

But then I read on further. Oh, dear! Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear...

If they accepted self-published novels for the bad sex awards, she sweep the board!

Also, I know it's cruel to mock, but if she will advertise the novel and encourage people to buy it, what can she expect?

Nothing I write has ever, ever been as bad as that. I feel strangely encouraged!
