I have very vocal followers who do not hesitate to let me know how they feel. Sometime I have to delete a few posts for they get a little carried away with their feelings. 🙂
But Tammy feels that we authors are not only not appreciated but by the standards of other professions we are taken advance of. That we need to revolt. Form a revolution. That in unison, we living writers and the relatives of the deceased ones need to pull all the books in the world and shout: “NO BOOK FOR YOU!!”
And after that, we need to find a leader. An author who is very good at conspiracy theories to weave his magic, someone like Dan Brown to form a secret society to clandestinely seek out every owners of one of our books. Track them, kick in their door bellicose screaming “Give me that *&@ book!” and snatch it from them just as it’s getting good.
Then we take all them them home and build play forts with them in our livingrooms and dare anyone to touch them. Never mind some of us have millions of copies to haul home and may have to buy another house to store them. That’s alright. Our babies are back home where they belongs.
An eerie fog will descend upon the world. We revert to the Dark Ages of the 1980’s. The ghostly whispers of books I-have-not–read can heard everywhere. The world will become spooky and plutoian due all computers, kindles, televisions, and nooks have gone dark or only produce stick-drawn ads. Because all the smashing ad writers, playwriters, music writers, sitcom writers have all joined us in revolt and out of revenge because we aren’t finish you. We elect Stephen King to write a secret gravatar so that every time you search for a book or any written material Cujo jump out barking, snarling, and slobbering in your face.
ROTFLLOL! Ok, Tammy, I’m being very silly about a serious issue. I know you going to get me for this. LOL!
Anyway, everyone that was a nice dream but seriously thus. My adult reply is at the bottom. I truly appreciate your concern. I really do. Forgive my silliness. 🙂
