It's that time again. Time for all primetime shows to take their summer hiatus so the stars can rest themselves to start entertaining again in the fall.
And I don't mind.
What I LOATHE, though, is when a director, producer, etc. feels the need to remix previous episodes and call it "new." Definitely one of my television pet peeves. If it says "new", then by God, it better be "new." With NO previously viewed pieces. And if you can't do that, at least be honest.
This is my lovely segue into epilogues and novellas. A rather thin one, but I'm on a roll. *grins*
I recently read where Julia Quinn is selling her epilogues. This, to me, is blatantly ridiculous. But...so is selling a thin book for a thick price. If you're going to sell a novella, then the price should reflect that. And an epilogue belongs in the back of a book. Not with a spine of its own. *irritated*
And novellas that are being sold for way too much...CEASE AND DESIST! Let the price reflect what you're truly paying for. Don't try to take my last dime while peddling your piddly crap.
*telling it like it is* BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Harsh? Perhaps. Okay. Probably. I understand there is a business side. People to pay. A business to run. But for Pete's sake! Don't run off your customers. That novella better be damn good.
And put that flippin' epilogue back in the book. Sheesh.
