quote 2017-04-23 20:00
And it sounds so easy in the stories, even when it’s not. Even when there are millions of obstacles, heroes know exactly what to do. There is always a way out. But the problem with real life is, there is not. And storytellers, you know what their problem is? There are millions of worlds in their heads. They know magic, and love, and hatred, and they have a metaphor for every feeling you can imagine. As tellers, they are fantastic. But when they become characters, it changes completely.

The Storyteller by Andrea Tomić

quote 2014-05-04 17:29
...If the only way that this 'feature" will not reload the books that I do not want to add to goodreads is by adding those books to goodreads, than there is no choice is there?...

From a goodreads post about new "add your amazon books" feature (which is actually just in testing stage for feedback group members).  For full thread and this comment see https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1784558-add-your-amazon-books-live-for-feedback-group-members-us-canada-austr?comment=97892783&page=3#comment_9789278

 

(Personally I pull in amazon books two ways -- put books on an amazon wishlist and use that url to import via goodreads MyBooks>Import or pull amazon purchases into Shelfari, export to csv file, then import csv file to goodreads.)

quote 2014-03-07 11:23
"... what often happens in these situations is that the author in question, who feels personally attacked ...sort of combines all of the individual critical voices together and calls “bully,” not because there is a repeated pattern of victimization, but because more than one reader criticizes the author’s commercial product..."

quote 2014-03-04 20:48
"To reiterate: Amazon is not your friend. Its job is not to be your friend."

The quote comes from this post, "Diversify Your Publishing." by Chuck Wending. I thought the piece would be of interest to some folks here, especially those of you who are "small" authors. Click the link to read the full post. By the way, the quote, applies to pretty much anyone who interacts with Amazon somehow, whether authors, readers, librarians, publishers, so on.
