- The author, hard at work on his novel about the nausee of dog existence.
There isn’t a whole lot I can really add to that headline without putting my fist through my computer (and then on through my stack of books, and then through Mike’s computer). I have nothing against the Hipster Puppies tumblr (in fact, I liked it enough to bring it to your attention around the time it debuted… two months ago). I guess I just thought I’d already come to terms with how ridiculous the world of publishing is, and then this came along to remind me that no, I have not yet come to terms with how ridiculous the world of publishing is…
So, based on what I have learned, I think I have a pretty good idea…
Dear World of Publishing,
I have a great idea for a book: I will print out each page of my novel in a large format, pose each page with an adorable puppy wearing glasses (or a hat, or a cape), take 256 photographs, and then you can publish it as a book of puppy photos. And that will be my novel, published.
Thank you. Please email me.
