Back-Dooring Amazon

Anybody who has worked with me knows I know how to back-door the system (thank you, U.S. Army).

If all us POD or direct-publisher authors go on Amazon, and in the reviews point out which ones make US money and which ones only make collectors money, sooner or later Amazon will cordon those off automatically.

I WON't do this is I no longer have the books - but BUY FROM THE AUTHOR FIRST. 

This isn't to run the collectors out of business. It's to make sure the authors get paid first. In the long run, this can only be good for the collectors, because the authors will be able to produce more books to sell.

It's Legal Now

Of course, we have a New Freedom up here in Washington State, so the Logo has been changed to reflect the law. However, even our friend See See knows that - while comics are for everybody - not everything is.

We haven't got a liquor license for the convention, unlike San Jose's Alternative Press Expo. Going to be really buckling down to negotiations soon, so it MIGHT be in a motel or bed-and-breakfast or art gallery or in my yard. You're grown-ups, and so are the property owners.

We have lovely long beaches and woods. It's part of the charm of the convention.
