My Local Big City Paper Hates Me

My local big city paper will mention me in lists--articles about events that involve a number of writers whose names are listed in a paragraph. And once years ago I got a little article in the middle of a page in local edition. But the paper will not review my books or give me any kind of traditional coverage in the Arts section of the paper.

A couple of weeks ago, I sent material to the Calendar section--the Calendar--regarding the bookstore appearance I'm making day after tomorrow. Of course, they didn't run it. They had hardly anything in the "readings" section of the Calendar this week. It's not like they were overwhelmed with material and had to drop something to make space.

I swear, I couldn't get an obit published in that rag. And the paper charges for those. I'm leaving instructions for my heirs. If my obit doesn't run, you get your money back.

This game is very interesting and as long as you know the Scions Of Fate gold you will love it and you will go to play this game every day. Instead in this game you will not complain it and you will only want to earn the SOF gold to make yourself become strong. sometimes you can also go to earn the Scions Of Fate money with your friends, because if you play the game with your friends you can be strong more easily. I know every player wants to get more and more cheap SOF gold to become strong. So you can buy sof gold and then you can equipment yourself with the weapons.
