So... I'm spamming LJ today

Unfriend me. I deserve it.

On scalzifeed, John Scalzi links to a post about how hard it is to blurb a novel[1].

Can I just say: Thank God I didn't read this last week? Even though the post itself is not terribly serious, I was so twitchy and uncomfortable with emailing authors to ask them to read/possibly blurb Harvest of Fire that it would have made me nauseous. [2]


[1] What does it say about me that my first thought upon opening that blog post was "She's using her shift key! I can read her blog now." ?

[2] For the record, everyone I asked said "yes" except one, and I'm not sure I had his correct email address.
