"I try not to listen, but I hear you."

Mille fois merci, M. l'insomnie.

Very short entry. The beginning of my ongoing penance for having allowed The Drowning Girl: A Memoir to languish back in the spring. Oh, I know. The damage is done. But guilt is a very powerful motivator.

Again, what I said yesterday: The audiobook of The Drowning Girl: A Memoir, is superb. Direct from Neil Gaiman presents, via Audible, and Suzy Jackson does a great job. Oh, and people often ask me where and how they should purchase my books so that I will best benefit from the sale, and usually, I reply that it doesn't much matter (used copies aside). But I get 50% of all audiobook sales on The Drowning Girl: A Memoir, for what it's worth. So, everyone wins.

Also, the novel seems to have pissed off some dude with a very tiny dick. The guy who labeled it "Androphobic, pretentious crap." Maybe I owe him an apology, for foisting my "lesbic manure" off on unsuspecting and insecure males. Unless the "review" was written by a woman, which would be interesting, I admit. Okay, so if it was written by a woman, I apologize to the woman with the very tiny dick. There. My good deed for the day is done.

Androphobically Yours,
Aunt Beast

I am enjoying the Audible version of The Drowning Girl as much as the one for The Red Tree in that the voices in my head match those of the narrators chosen. Your books deserve no less than the perfect voices, in my (fannish) opinion.

Well, now all I need is about 25,000 other people who enjoy it....

I had to look up androphobic. I'm rather disappointed it has nothing to do with the irrational fear of androids.

For what it's worth, I loved The Drowning Girl, and I do my best to recommend it to anyone who will listen.

Now, I will admit, I am misanthropic.

Now, I will admit, I am misanthropic.

And also, likely, misandrophic.

Well, at least somebody else says that TDG isn't for the simple-minded. That's something.

'Lesbic manure' sounds like a character in a Tom Wolfe novel. Seriously, what rock do they all live under?

You and your lesbosity! Your lesbianic habits!
