A new sales venue, emotional writing, plagiarism, women in epic fantasy and awesome feminist cartoons

First of all, I have an announcement: Pegasus Pulp e-books are now available at OmniLit/AllRomance ebooks.

If you need one of the more exotic e-book formats (Palm, Microsoft Reader, Rocket) or are an international reader who wants to avoid the two dollar Amazon surcharge, you may want to look at OmniLit/AllRomance.

Damien Walter has a great post on emotions and writing.

As Smart Bitches, Trashy Books points out, romantic suspense and paranormal romance writer Cynthia Eden has been plagiarized. A fanfic writer calling themselves Misconception76 has taken the words of Cynthia Eden’s novel Deadly Heat, turned it into a piece of Twilight fanfiction by changing the names of the characters to Edward and Bella and posted the whole thing on fanfic.net. However, the self-policing of the fanfiction community seems to have worked, because the story has been taken down.

Juliet McKenna has a great post on the representation of women in epic fantasy at Bad Reputation, a feminist pop culture blog.

Bad Reputation also offers lots of more good stuff, including this appreciation of She-Ra, Princess of Power, He-Man’s much cooler sister.
