Update on the IILAA

Blogger has been giving me fits for the last three days. It takes hours to access my blog and updating it has been a nightmare.

Anyway, I got an email from Sherrill Quinn saying that the IILAA website was down and contained a snotty message saying "kiss my ass."

Before I could access it, apparently that message was removed from the IILAA home page and replaced with another saying, "I am currently working on the site . . . Thanks for visiting!"

Looks like the members of the IILAA are rethinking their strategy. I suspect we'll see them pop up again in a few months with another name for their association.

Of course, there's always the old Martha Ivery strategy. She simply announced her own death and reinvented herself as Kelly O'Donnell. She then went right back to contacting "Martha's" old clients.

It's nice to see writers taking care of their own. If we would band together to call attention to "red flags" for newbies, we could save a lot of people a lot of grief.

Grrr.

Yeah, I can't send e-mail.

I know there are untold numbers of people who don't want to send e-mail, but I'm not one of them.

Ever since Comcast sold to Time Warner...

Well, I need to get back to waiting 3 hours for a service person to pick up the phone.
