Dealing with authors who have PAs is so damn exhausting. Personal Assistants. The PAs have a very “My client is the most important person in the universe” attitude.

I can't imagine ever becoming so successful in writing as to ever need a personal assistant.

I would love to have a personal assistant who is devoted to me. How could that not be great? "Jeeves, another iced tea, please. This one has grown warm."

Good. Those things are expensive and they cut off the circulation to your brain.

I can imagine it. Come to think of it, I might write a story about it.

I have two. One for sci-fi stuff another for romance. The romance one's at over 1K subscribers, the sci-fi one at a little over 200.

It'll be in an anthology on Amazon on March 15th. It's already up for pre-order.

I also finally finished my quiz related to Power. What's Your Power?

Cool. Too bad I didn't know about that one. I'm sure I could write some Leprechaun Porn.

At last! My chance to write Lepreporn! Thank you!

They mention a contract, but they don't outline the terms. Is it the standard first rights thing?
