Boy, has this been an interesting week in the world of authors.
1. Goodreads deleting shelves without notice to readers amid what I cannot help but feel is an attempt to make women be nice. Seriously. Isn’t Goodreads really kind of a Reddit for Books? I’m sure most people will think I’m way off here, but I think the underpinnings of what’s going on is rooted in
The mostly male participants over at Reddit? Infamous for threads that skirt legality. Hey, boys will be boys! Also, fuck you.
The mostly female participants at Goodreads? You are not being nice. Stop it. <<Deletion of “mean” content>>
I’m not so happy with GR right now.
2. ANOTHER author accused of plagiarism. Put the two sources side-by-side, as several have done, and, wow.
3. David Gilmore doesn’t teach [about] women writers because the only good ones are men. Fuck you David Gilmore.
