It’s been all over the intertubes, that that are these writing mafias that exist of mean girls who intend to crush the writing careers of competitors. They do stuff like tell their editors not to buy a book from writer X and refuse to do blurbs for writer Y. Well, contrary to all the fine people who say that’s nonsense (I’m looking at you Scalzi!) I’m here to tell you right now that there IS such as thing as a writing mafia.
Here’s a picture of the leader of one of these writer mafias:
Yes. You read it here first. I am a mafia Donna. I admit it. My mafiosa is called La Cosa Chocolate but sometimes we’re called The Chocolate Mafia. I did mean to say we. Because there are members besides me, too. They joined on Twitter last night, though I had to sic my enforcers, @emmapetersen and my
Indonesian Malaysian muscle @arzai on one of them. We’re a ruthless band and @younglibrarian caved like a little girl.
What does La Cosa Chocolate do?
We create chocolate mayhem wherever possible. Some of us write. Some of us read. Some of us read AND write. You wanna be a chocolate goomba, you gotta PROVE your chocolate love. Right now, we’re planning on wreaking havoc at RWA, except for @younglibrarian, who isn’t going, but who has promised to misstamp some library cards. So watch out.
