POD Girl

Copyright (c) FreeFoto.comTis a sad day on the Good Ship Interweb, me hearties. It looks like POD Girl is tak­ing down the main­sail. Who her? She be a lovely, altru­ist­ic writer who set her­self the task of review­ing POD titles (small pub­lish­er and self-pub­lished books) in the hope of bring the good ones to great­er atten­tion. She had sev­er­al kind words to say about my book, and many more. This from her last post:

But mostly, I am simply burned out. I mean, have you ever looked at my stats? C’mon, 1,600 books in a year? And some lit­er­ary agen­cies don’t get 5,000 quer­ies in a year. It’s too much work for one per­son. Frankly, it’s just too much work, peri­od. It has been a super exper­i­ment, and per­haps the greatest res­ult of it is the list of 65 books on the right-hand side that might nev­er have seen the light of day.

Good job, POD Girl, who­ever you are.

  1. Sad to see her go, but it was a good ser­vice. Glad to have been a part of it myself. I’ll check out your book.

  2. Thanks for your com­ment, Henry. Yeah, it’s a shame, and I wish she’d come out of anonym­ity so I could buy her book!
