Wiley Responds and Friday Funnies

STATUS: Where has the morning gone? Eek.

What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? HEY GOOD LOOKIN’ by Hank Williams

Today Wiley issued a press release asserting the Authors Guild is in error.

Any Bloomberg authors want to weigh in anonymously and comment, feel free.

And to kick off the weekend, the Bronte Sisters Power Dolls (courtesy of my client Laurence)! Bless youtube. Where would I be without them? Enjoy!

    HAHAHAHAHA! I’ve seen that video posted before, but this was the first time I had a chance to watch it. HILARIOUS.

    Thanks.

    Reading that press release almost reminds me of someone arguing “did not” when confronted with an accusation, but not going into any more detail than that.

    You know, when someone counters specific charges with “nuh uh,” it’s just not believable.

    The AG said that Wiley changed e-book royalties from cover price to net receipts. It would be nice to say, “No, we didn’t,” or “We did, but we drastically bumped up the royalty rate in compensation.”

    “We don’t think so” is just a dumb, unbelievable response.

    God I love youtube too – except when I catch myself after wasting a couple of hours watching vids instead of sleeping or writing or doing something else essential!

    This though was one of the funniest things I’ve seen! must repost. Thanks for sharing!
