PostSubject: Hello, all   Sun Jun 28, 2009 12:34 pm

I wrote a long intro yesterday that disappeared into cyberspace. This is probably because I'm a techno-moron, and all things electronic hate me. But I persevere.

I'm a California journalist who published two comic novels in the UK with maverick publisher Babash-Ryan (now, alas, defunct.) I believe the books are still available through liquidators and are available on amazon.co.uk: Food of Love (2003) and The Best Revenge (2005) I also wrote a regular column for INkwell Newswatch from 2002-2008, when Writers Digest named it one of the top 101 writing sites on the Web.

I'm now updating those columns and posting them on my blog. Lots of useful info about the publishing industry, both in the UK and the US, most of which I learned the the hard (embarrassing) way.

You can learn from my mistakes at http://annerallen.blogspot.com/
