The Journal, Tuesday, November 7

Hey Folks,

A mild morning for a change, at the cusp of 50°. If I took a photo straight up at the moon in the high mist, it would make a great horror or romance cover. Funny how those two genres can be so closley related in the images they invoke. Or maybe it isn’t.

Well, self-publishing platform and distributor Pronoun is shutting down. See “Epilogue” at https://pronoun.com/. I never got around to using them because of the extremely condescending language on their interface.

However, in other news, my preferred distributor, Draft2Digital, now distributes to Amazon. I am in hebben. For the announcement, please see https://www.draft2digital.com/blog/draft2digital-now-distributes-to-amazon/.

So Pronoun, who famously distributed works to Amazon, shut down yesterday, and then D2D, who previously distributed works to all the big-name players EXCEPT Amazon, began distributing to Amazon today. Hmmm.

Now I’m waiting for the announcement that McMillan bought D2D. (I hope it doesn’t come.)

Had to run a repair on my Office 365 today to make it work. Sure have had a lot of weird stuff happen recently. Ugh.

Back tomorrow.
