Red 'publisher's rules' yesterday. Now I understand why we have so many awful books. It's like video games - publishers give their money only to 'reliable' projects. And under 'reliable' they understand 'people will buy it for sure'. There's a problem - the publishers think that people will buy only 'good old'-themed books. You know, about heroic alpha-males and women with big tits. That's why they kill any 'unusual' book authors send to them. There's a risk that people won't understand it and won't buy it. That's what they think, and that's why we read the 'same book' over and over again. Yes, it has different titles and covers, but inside it's the good old 'they'll definitely buy it' stuff.
More than that - many 'young authors' happily support this approach. 'Yeah, if ya wanna be rich ya hafta give 'em what they want. Give 'em sex and violence, man'. Oh really. *facepalm*
It's obvious to me that I won't be a writer, because I can't stand this crap.
