I Don’t Know

I don’t know how much e-books should cost.  I’ve read arguments for sliding-scale prices.  I know lots of people don’t want to pay over a certain price.  I don’t have an answer.

I don’t know whether Macmillan’s agency agreement would be better for authors and readers than some other approach.

I don’t know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop.

I don’t know whether people are going to love Snow Queen.

I don’t know where I get my ideas.

I don’t know when I’ll be able to post the cover art to Red Hood’s Revenge [B&N | Mysterious Galaxy | Amazon].

I don’t know how long I have before my son stops running up to hug me when I come home from work.

I don’t know if my home has adequate weaponry to protect my family against the zombie uprising.

I don’t know whether I should set Snow Queen revisions aside for a week so I can write up and pitch a new series to DAW.

I don’t know why “Single Ladies” won a Grammy.  (But I think it had something to do with the Chipmunks movie.)

I don’t know why I’m so incredibly bad with names and faces.

I don’t know how Randall Munroe does it.

I don’t know how single parents balance work, kids, and sanity.

I don’t know why the catfish in our aquarium keep dying.

I don’t know why religion is ever worth killing for.

I don’t know if I should create a fan page on Facebook.

I don’t know whether an anime-style Snoopy fighting cat-ninjas would be awesome or terrifying.  ETA: socchan brings the awesome here.

I don’t know where this post came from.  I guess I just thought the Internet would be a slightly better place if people were willing to admit they didn’t know things from time to time.

That was my thought, leave the personal/family stuff on your own page, and be able to direct your fans to a page that contains links to all your other stuff. Like a consolidation if you will of your work and where to get it.

I don't post too much family stuff anyway. Had a bad experience with someone telling me my then 5-year-old daughter was hot. Family stuff got locked down tight from that day onward.

But the fan page certainly might work better as the more centralized Jim Book Resource on Facebook...

Wow.. That had to be terrifying...

I look forward to seeing more of your stuff whatever it's on!

More icky than scary. I tracked the guy's IP address, and he was in Australia, so there wasn't any real threat. But it was a reminder that even though 99% of the folks who hang out at my blog are wonderful people, it only takes that 1%...

Oh, yes, never put something on the internet that you would object to seeing on the front page of the New York Times.

Oh ew, EW! Oh, I'm sorry.
