Archer's Asylum

I'm a big bloke (7ft tall) and I am forever reading. This will mostly be my thoughts as I am reading and possibly a review or two. You may know me as Archer.


I am basically a lurker. My life revolves around my wife, my cats, Books, and entertainment.


I'm working on building and setting up a forge and I'm generally one of those people who can be found causing or in the middle of mischief somewhere...

Authors being rude to booksellers

This is a really interesting list of things authors should never do when dealing with a bookseller.  Apparently, they're not just snotty to readers, but to the people who sell their books, too.  You know, the two groups of people which help them make money?


Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!


(This is from 2009, but I still thought it was a wonderful -- albeit in a bad way? -- insight into the BBA mind.)
