Someone recently made a suggestion to me. I was somewhat flattered, but it also seemed a little odd. He said that I should get Avatar published. Now, not for nothing, but I see several problems with this.
Subject matter aside, who would buy something in print that they could get for free on the net?
I mean, I know that there are folks who like the story, but considering what it would cost to get it published somewhere like Cafepress, would people really pay $30 for it?
Then, there’s the subject matter. Oh, they have XXX books there for sale, but I rather doubt they contain some of the types of characters that Avatar has. And if you’ll recall my rants on how the religious right has taken over America, I just don’t think that anyplace would publish this story.
However, there is a story I’ve been meaning to follow up. Office Games.
I wonder if folks would be really upset with me if I published the follow up on that story, rather than putting it on the net 🙂 Hmmm. Something to think about…
