Macmillan shows us how publishing really works.

Via Ron Hogan at Galleycat. Pure awesome. (And 100% true, I swear!)

Why suuuuuuuuure...

How all of this information has escaped my attention until now is a mystery.

Can I get a ride on one of those boats to Switzerland?

can I get one of those lumberjacks? :)

Also, I want that babysitter. Heck with publication, someone's going to buy my clothes for me and take care of my kid? I'm all over that! :D

(word verif: skabous. new disease?)

Ooh, I want a babysitter and someone to buy my clothes for me, too! Actually, can I get an advance on those things now so I'll have more time to write my novel (and look good while I'm doing it)?

And seriously, having the author and editor communicate via Twitter doesn't sound like a half bad idea... Many of us live there anyway.

My God! Now it all makes sense!

That was hilarious.

I'm desperate to watch this, but can't on my dial-up connection. Pah.

And you've stolen the name of my blog for part of your title here. I'm grateful for the plug: but not sure I should associate myself with whatever it is that you're all looking at!

funny! It all makes perfect sense, doesn't it? I liked the low-down on the editor/author relationship... so glad they get to choose the character names!
thanks for sharing this,
Namaste,
