Ivanhine, over at Ann Somerville’s blog.
I am pretty much an outsider and an occasional reader of DA. I don’t belong to, nor am I represented by any publishers involved in any of the discussions to which you took part. In fact, the only somewhat direct contact I have is that my epublisher got a positive review from you at Uniquely Pleasurable a short time back for another author’s work (not mine.) I don’t know your work very well, except for what is put out on the net, but there is a long history of comments, blog posts, and self-disclosures here from which any casual observer can draw a conclusion. And here is what I see, for what it is worth, and you can take it or leave it.
If you want to read any more, you have to wonder over there, because I simply don’t have time to post excerpts right now.
I have to tell you though, this was my favourite bit from the rather long, but wonderfully articulate comment:
Didn’t you understand that you can’t shit in the same place you eat?
Methinks the answer to that is a resounding, no.
Edited to add:
Apparently AS deleted the relevant post, so the links will be broken. Shame, because Ivanhine’s comments were rather splendid.
