"Dominique Millette's disturbing blog about women being expected to be sexually available at co-ed busines functions does indeed provide another reason why women may be reluctant to network in those settings--self-preservation. Sarah Glazer"

"hmmm, I had work stolen by a reputable zine when I was only 11. I cried and fussed to my father who wisely said: they like your work enough to steal it. You must have talent. So when we are copied, we can choose how we view it I guess. I am happy…"

B. Lynn Goodwin commented on the blog post 'Steal My Book?'

Steal My Book?

Posted on February 27, 2010 at 9:58am 14 Comments

Should I let you steal my work? More and more, that’s a question most writers will face.



Take a writer who said “Yes” with astounding results ...



In 1999, the agent for Brazilian author Paulo Coelho returned from Russia with bad news. Coehlho's novel “The Alchemist” had sold fewer than 3,000 copies and the publisher had decided to discontinue publication.



A second Russian language publisher was found but the republication was held up by supply… Continue

No More Faux Beauvoir

Posted on December 15, 2009 at 10:30am 5 Comments

If you’ve read that feminist classic, “The Second Sex,” in English, you’ve been reading a faulty translation that distorted Simone de Beauvoir’s message. Now you can finally read a new translation that is far more faithful to the French author’s original intent—the fruit of a long struggle by feminist scholars.



The new translation, by Americans Constance Borde and Sheila Malovany-Chevallier, has just been… Continue

Anything They Can Do We Can Do Better

Posted on November 16, 2009 at 2:30pm 5 Comments

I’m devoting my blog today to the She Writes Day of Action, which, as many of you already know, is aimed at amassing a list of all the superlative books written by women authors this year. I found it surprisingly easy to come up with some great books written by women in 2009. (Surprising only because most of my favorite books were written before 1940.)



The Day of Action came about when Kamy Wicoff, the fearless founder of the women writers' website She Writes, protested…

Does Content Want to Be Free?

Posted on October 16, 2009 at 10:34am 1 Comment

It was a shock to hear my favorite tabloid being hawked for nothing on the streets of London this week. The Evening Standard is the first quality newspaper in London to become officially and (presumably permanently) free.



“The Evening Standard is now free; Keep on walking,” shouted one purveyor to rush hour commuters dashing for the Tube, who would no longer have to pause for even a second to dig out 50 pence (80 cents) from their pocket.



According to media… Continue

Quick Hit: Sudden Death for Big Library in the Sky

Posted on September 25, 2009 at 10:19am 0 Comments

So the Google book search deal to create the biggest-yet library-cum-bookstore in the sky is officially moribund—at least in its present form. Yesterday, the judge charged with approving the deal for Google’s online e-book offerings gave the settlement parties more time to renegotiate the terms in order to take into account the objections… Continue

Sarah, do you have your own blog outside of this Ning. I'd love to share what you're saying about the Google Library.
