I tried to report it, after being tipped off by a mutual friend, but FB wouldn't let me, since you and I are not FB friends. I hope this gets resolved. Not cool at all.

Good questions, Bob! Personally, I find most awards programs to be a pretty big racket, which is why I prefer to DO work for my clients, and not spend time nominating my projects for awards.

Great post from Barb. You're so right. Storytelling can be very effective, but falls flat when you're not believable.

Hmm. Apparently on Livefyre it's still Remembrance/Veterans' Day.

I agree it was out of line to refer to the candidate in this way. THAT BEING SAID, I really do believe that one's tone of voice and manner of speaking are not quite as important as the content, but VERY close. I have a hard time taking seriously anyone who speaks with a vocal fry or uptalk. Know, like, what I mean???
Great post, Shel. Isn't evolution fun? When I first saw an ad for an iPod a few years ago, I thought it was ridiculous. WHY on earth would I want to listen to music like THAT? Now I not only do so, but have also been producing podcasts for more than 5 years. And so too will my book-consumption evolve. Today, I am much more comfortable reading fiction on a screen. With nonfiction and business books, I often want to write notes, which are not easy to do on screen. I love your idea about contacting the author. Especially with self-publishing, this is more feasible today. (By the way, I adored that Bryson book, but did read it the old-school way, which was the only format available just a few years ago!)

I agree that the editor is clueless, the writer was treated badly, and the apology was hollow. However, let's keep in mind that Cooks Source is a very small regional publication. I doubt they have a PR team or even a crisis policy. After all, they can't even afford an apostrophe.
