Glitter: NEVER.

Last night I came across an article on Publisher’s Weekly; a writer was all up in arms because publishers appear to have stuffed literature into slutty outfits and given them all bad stripper names. That’s a metaphor. Metaphors are like, really old.

I’ve been researching iconic book covers as part of getting ready to be ready. Classic literature, like timeless art, style, design and music, supersede novelty by refusing to settle for cheap tricks.

What’s a cheap trick?

Don’t you mean who? Ugh. Never mind.
