    "JD" commented on Squidge's Blog "Pandering to male readers?".
    Readingwise I can go any way - male-by-a-male, female-by-female, and any mix-and-match thereof - but I tend to write female characters. Why? I honestly don't know. I was raised in a house of women, have two daughters, many female friends and just ...

      Athelstone This is the "custom" 403 notification with a Writer's Workshop background? The way that the Cloud displays these messages is part of the Cloud's own programming and not necessarily a genuine internet error. Might be worth having a word with the WW

    JD I love the email spammer names. Addison Berrington? Sherman Kerns. Autumn Bradberry, for God's sake?! Who wouldn't want to read a book about them? Some sound like pen names: "I Miss You" by Kalani Farrell tops the readers' charts. "Experiments In Bed" makes Booker shortlist for newcomer Brielle Creighton. "Xenical" by Hershel Banks to be made into screenplay starring Shia LeBoeuf.

      JD Thanks! I kyboshed the "test group" request as I am probably going to delete it; there's nothing in there other than me testing formatting, if that is ok? :)

      newbie author Ooo! Yes, it's OK by me. I thought it might be for testing your work, ie the book you are working on. Silly me.
