Re: MODS PLEASE READ THIS POST! I'm moving this to the small press section.

Re: MODS PLEASE READ THIS POST! Speaking as a mod and a small press publisher, I'm doubly offended by the tone of this post.

OVERLORD! That is sorta funny, but.....  Dont hide my responses from the people who attacked my thread. See how many hits it got in two minutes at the main heading? thats because its interesting.  

I am @BookReTweeter on twitter and a founding member of the Independent Authors Network too, so I do more for self pubbed/small press authors than most of you. Dont think they'll turn against me. I am a one of their Champions. Pay attention.

I wasn't going to respond to this again, but now it's just getting silly. None of us were attacking your thread, we merely pointed out that you appeared to have missed a point that is rather obvious to the rest of us, and that this should not be a public argument. Please stop.

Also please stop bragging about groups you're part of as though that makes what you're doing ok; it just makes you come across as arrogant, and is really not helping your cause.

Re: MODS PLEASE READ THIS POST! Perhaps the most entertaining thread in Fantasy-Faction history. And, I must say that I admire your confidence in your own abilities. Sadly, all good things must come to an end.

I would be ashamed of the MODS initial reaction and try to hide it from the main threads if I were you too.  

Congratulations! You've just earned a trip to the naughty corner. You can commiserate with your 92,000 Twitter followers. Next time, it is permanent.

As, you have posted this in the public forum I will respond in the public forum.

First of all, Small Press is defined by Wikipedia (related to US publishers) as a publishing house that makes under $50 million dollars a year and publishes fewer than 10 titles a year.  Unless you are making and publishing more than that, in the US, you are considered a Small Press publisher.  There is nothing wrong with being a small press publisher.  If you look purely at the numbers a company could make $40 million dollars a year and publish 9 books a year and still be considered small press.  That does not make them less successful or the work they publish less important.  But it still means they are small press.

There are lots of people who have their work published in small press houses and there are a lot of people who self-publish their work.  We at Fantasy-Faction feel there is a place for every type of fantasy on our shelves and on our site, which is why we have the Small Press & Self-Published section in the forms and regularly review titles from both types on the main site.

I am very happy that your work is so successful and appreciate that you enjoy posting about it on our site.  But your work is small pressed published and therefore belongs in the small press section.  pornokitsch, who posted above is also a small press publisher.  He posts about his anthologies here all the time, and does so in the appropriate section of the forums.  If you would like to continue posting about your work here, please feel free to do so, but do it in the appropriate places.

Secondly, in this forum we are treat people with respect at all times.  I do not allow people to disrespect our forum members or mods.  It’s rude and uncalled for.

Third, if you have a problem with the way the site is run, you can private message any of the staff and they will discuss the problem with you.  Posting your complaints in the public forum is not professional.  You can’t just put ‘Only Mods Read This’ in the title then expect no one else to respond.  That’s not how the forum works.

Further comments can be private messaged to me, or one of the other mods.  Thank you.

Next time you are bored, don't do something incredibly stupid just to cause some drama/action/death of hordes of innocents.

Re: Shaghai Sparrow by Gaie Sebold Shaghai! Oh bugger! I do some daft mistypes. Was shit filled puss water last week. And when I first joined this forum I didn't get why people were so offended by my review of The Great Hunt till I saw I had used a C not a H.  :-[
