And the winner is…

October 17, 2013

If the walls could talkA love affair with the arts. But not ideas. Books are published, given awards, and then seen no more. There is no discussion about ideas. Nor even discussion about the books themselves. When I first started writing I was told that mainstream couldn’t sell. You had to write genre fiction. Crime, science fiction, romance, horror, erotica etc. That was where you could make a career. What I have seen amongst writers and artists as a whole is what they seek is some vague laurel leaf. It would make Mark Twain snicker. Awards should be given to those books that sell the most. At the least, it would make some kind of sense.

(I find this little rant confusing. Are you against awards or pretense? Clean this up and bring it back to me tomorrow.)
