Barnes and Noble

Like Amazon, Barnes and Noble have their good points and bad points.

Right now, I LOVE the fact that their pre-order price for Legacy is only $8.76.

I'm NOT so thrilled with the fact that they've listed Spencer Hill Press as the AUTHOR of Adversary, which explains why I haven't seen it on my author page. I've got an email in to the corrections people, so we'll see what happens.

UPDATE: they've listed me as the author now (yay!), but it hasn't made its way through the system to my author page.

Finally, I came across this quote a few weeks ago, then saw it somewhere else, and now can't recall either source (although that lack of recall may be partially due to the fact that I'm writing this at 2:47 a.m.).

"Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."
– E.L. Doctorow

I'm considering embroidering it on a pillow--in my copious spare time.

Thanks X and Lua! I'm cautiously optimistic.
