Let Go of My Arm, Link

One: Does congress really express itself at a tenth-grade level? Only if you believe NPR and one study’s reliance on a flawed testing method that doesn’t take into account the content of what is spoken, but, rather, only sentence length.

Two: Ye self-published beware: Get that chip off your shoulder about not being traditionally published because it ain’t doing you any good. The best takeaway:

Most readers, by and large, don’t care a white who publishes you. They haven’t heard of 90% of the imprints out there anyway. They’re not going to read you because you wear your self-publishing badge with excessive pride. They just want to know if your book is good.


This all dovetails with what David Gaughran writes in his self-published book Let’s Get Digital: How to Self-Publish and Why You Should.
