    WN is dead, killed by WN lifers who can't write. WN does not even take anymore members. They are afraid they will get more like the lifers.

    I think the real James North is tied to a chair near this guy's computer, watching while he posts his bank statements online, claiming them as proof of his own writing success. I wonder what happened? Did a real writer steal his girlfriend or kill his dog and now he hates them all?

    Prestigious or not the publishers are sure gung-ho enough about it.

    Whoopee.

    And they're not letting anybody out, either. So, James, it appears that you're stuck here.

    (And that's bad news for the rest of us.)

    The Wild Rose is an e-press. The vast majority of nominees for this poll are e-pubbed.

    Marcel, why did you put a question mark after that sentence? You merely declared your thoughts about the matter.

    (A former poster used to do that a lot.)

    So does Harper Collins and you don't see them raving about this poll. Now that would carry some weight.

    ETA I have had 2 people ask me to vote for their books in the P&E poll--one person I knew, one I didn't. Just today someone asked me on FB to vote for his book in the Best Books of December Goodreads poll. I'm sure he spammed everyone, not just me. The quality of the book doesn't matter in these polls, it's getting enough of your friends to vote for you whether or not they've read the book.
