Office Hours: Should parents be criminally responsible for a child who kills? https://robertreich.substack.com/p/office-hours-what-responsibility?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=mastodon

@rbreich

it's not hard

anyone who supplies a murderer with a weapon should be criminally responsible for their part in the crime

if somebody else gave the kid a gun & helped make sure the kid was at school to use it, wouldn't you want them prosecuted?

parents aren't a special protected class who can do as they please

i don't know why this is even a question

The Many Colored Land by Julian May.... from back in 1982.

How is it?

@bookstodon

@peachfront@toot.community avatar

@Da_Gut @bookstodon

i was extremely upset, it did not have an ending & i vowed ( a vow I kept) never to read this author again

i don't even remember what happened, just the author's name & how cheated i felt

a hard cover book should have a f'n ending

we're not talking some indie author who has to break up their book into a 6-book series because Amazon won't pay fair royalties on any book over $10, we're talking the f'n 1980s...

peachfront ,
@peachfront@toot.community avatar

@templetongate @Da_Gut @bookstodon

all i can say is i remember nothing about Julian May except much hyped out of nowhere & then Book #1 ends with, "to find out what happens to Elizabeth, buy another book"

screw that

we know that stuff going in now but books are $3.99 ebooks a pop not hardback trad pub releases...

what this author consented to (without objection as far as i know) was refusing to provide readers with the whole story for what was a good bit of money then

peachfront ,
@peachfront@toot.community avatar

@templetongate @Da_Gut @bookstodon

ha never got that far but figure
people into Tolkien knew what they were getting, some of the Boomers (the generation immediately before mine) were a bit pushy about him

maybe Julian May is famous now but at the time this author was out of nowhere yet couldn't be bothered to write an ending better than, "buy the next book to see what happens" -- disgraceful by the expectations of the day & honestly a betrayal of the reader's trust

peachfront ,
@peachfront@toot.community avatar

@templetongate @Da_Gut @bookstodon

Series with undisclosed cliffies were not the default for hardcover books in the 80s & if you were there you know it

also

The 1980s were well after the decline of the magazines when it could be assumed everybody read their critics or even knew they existed

it was dirty dealing that memorably disappointed me & no doubt others-- our library didn't continue w/ the series

Reader should be warned, now has been warned, my job here is done

Some of this will mainly make sense to indie authors, but my publisher got a BookBub deal for Something Deadly on Desert Drive. I went from fewer than fifty ratings to 150 in a week! And I basically retained my star rating. I also hit at least #2 in free Cozy Mystery and #2 in free Women Sleuths in the Kindle Store. (I wasn't checking constantly.)

Neil Gaiman ( @neilhimself when he's posting here - which isn't often) is one of my favorite authors, and I'm usually in awe of just about everything he does. It was a cinch, then, that I picked up Unnatural Creatures, an arrangement of short stories that he picked out. So far, all of the stories are good.

Republicans already have a plan to rapidly privatize Medicare if Trump wins.

Short Stories.

Love ‘em, hate ‘em, somewhere in the middle?

Years ago one of my dear friends (who is a huge bookworm) and I were talking. She told me she hated short stories. I can’t remember why or if she even told me a reason. This conversation has stuck with me, because I struggle with them- why? I have no idea. I have tried different tactics to overcome this. I am s l o w l y reading one now, but I don’t gravitate toward it (not the one pictured, but it’s one I really want to read if I can ever get there).

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

lots of people tell me they hate em, esp. romance readers-- i get the idea that a lot of it is about the rather snappy abrupt endings you often get & the fact that the writer has to leave more about creating the world of the short story in the reader's mind, which apparently strikes some readers as a cheat

i like to read them myself but as a self publisher i rarely write them since my readers want novels or series

I have a question for I've been thinking about writing
in line with the genres I already write. However, I write for fun and for my "happy place", I'm wondering if there has to be a murder in a cozy mystery or if I could deal with other crimes and if they can be written without all the frenetic/zany side characters? Is that a different mystery subgenre?

Thoughts appreciated.

@bookstodon

peachfront ,
@peachfront@toot.community avatar

@KitMuse @bookstodon

the usual caveat> write what YOU like but just don't label as cozy when it doesn't meet the reader's expectations for a cozy

we expect the cozy to have a murder solved by an amateur who encounters quirky characters along the way

there are other subgenres to choose from if you don't like those conventions

example: the caper> a jewel or art heist can eschew murder & the ensemble can have different skills instead of "quirks"

or someone else just said, historical mystery

Do you really need a press release for your book? Here's just one reason:

"If you Google your book title, you will probably notice Amazon and other big retailers first; your publisher and your own website can appear later. Having a press release can boost this rank in search queries."

3 people in my bookclub really enjoy reading erotica. To each their own, it’s simply not my thing. My question, & I don’t want to come across as condescending, are there any books of this genre that are well-written? I get there will be a lot of gratuitous stuff, but is that all there is to these books? Years ago, another bookclub I was in read the 1st book in the Sleeping Beauty series by Anne Rice (she wrote these under a different name) & I couldn’t finish it, I thought it was ridiculous.

Any insight?

@Likewise @bookstodon

of course there's well written erotica

over the top writing was Rice's brand>while few would argue she was a great prose stylist, she's a likely one for book clubs because she was a best seller

IMHO erotica doesn't always lend itself well to book clubs or recommending to others because it isn't enough for the writing to be good, the sexual escalation has to tickle your particular erotic fantasies, which are wildly different & personal

    This yellow-bellied sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) is looking up, perhaps he sees a better spot. I think this is a young male because there are the beginnings of a red spot under his beak. You can clearly see why it is called yellow bellied.

    "The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker is the only woodpecker in eastern North America that is completely migratory. Although a few individuals remain throughout much of the winter in the southern part of the breeding range, most head farther south, going as far south as Panama. Females tend to migrate farther south than do males." - allaboutbirds.org
