I need this crocodile bookmark in my life! From Mental Floss:     “The Crocomark by Peleg Design resembles the top half of a crocodile, swimming just above the surface of your page-turner, while the rest of the reptile slips inside the book. Lifting the creature up reveals its sharp teeth and claws because, we assume, he’s devouring the story as hungrily as you are. You can get your own Crocomark here.”   3. Beer and pizza always go well together, right? From...

May 18, 2016 by

  Starr Media Second-Assistant Survival Guide 1. Don’t call your hot boss the antichrist to his face. 2. Don’t stare at hot boss’s, um, package or his full sleeve of tattoos. (No. Really. Stop!) 3. Don’t get on the malicious first assistant’s bad side. 4. Don’t forget to memorize the 300-page employee manual. 5. If you value your cashmere, steer clear of boss’s dog. 6. Boss’s dimples are lust-inducing. Do. Not. Give. In. 7. “The elevator ate your clothes” is not a valid excuse for showing up to important meetings half dressed. 8.

WTFckery or Not? You Decide

May 15, 2016 by

Welcome to this week’s unflinching WTFckery!     1. I love hearing about major book deals discussed in the mainstream media, especially highlighting those authors, including debut authors who worked hard to get notice. Did you know it’s even better for these debut authors, per some editors, if an author is attractive and not overweight, which is highlighted in an article at Entertainment Weekly titled: Why publishers are betting big on debut novelists? Below is a section of that article that speaks for itself on why it’s such a WTFckery: “You can’t count on selling a book on the writer’s talent alone—so while factors like being photogenic or savvy with social media won’t make or break a deal, they can definitely sweeten it. “I actually knew very little about [Sweeney] when I bought The...
