Had a fairly uneventful weekend. I won't say quiet or relaxing, because that's seldom the case. So, I'll take uneventful.
There is much drama in writing circles about Pay Pal forcing third party carriers to pull works they deemed immoral. While I agree with Pay Pal in theory (I wouldn't want to read books about incest, bestiality, rape, etc), I don't like the idea of what is essentially a bank or payment processing center deciding what is and isn't available for sale. Because -- first incest, bestiality and rape ... next it'll be something I do read or write. In fact, they're even required "pseudo-incest" books be pulled. This is sex between non-blood related family (i.e. step-father and daughter; step-uncle, niece) and I had this idea for a step-brother / sister story, so I guess I *am* impacted since I can't publish it at Smashwords.
Anyone know of another reliable payment processing company?
If you want to read more about it (and all about the (now former) treasurer of the Kiss of Death chapter of RWA caught plagiarizing, or the scuttlebutt about Dreamspinner Press and fan fic that may or may not be copied), go to Dear Author's post here.
DD is off this week, and we don't have a lot of plans. I am going to get her hair cut on Wednesday, and mine trimmed ... it's *almost* long enough for Locks of Love, but the ends (THE ENDS!) they are so damaged, I'm going to have 1/2" or so snipped off. Yeah, it'll take me a little longer to donate, but I can't stand how it looks.
Hope your weekend was happy!
