Everybodys got an ax to grind...
was interesting. Evidently the heirs of author A.A. Milne and illustrator E. H. Shepard are suing Disney for royalties due on the licensing of the Pooh characters. To the tune of $2 billion in damages! Talks broke down so now it’s on to federal court. Disney, BTW, supposedly makes $1 billion annually hawking Pooh products.
Got the ARC for Blood Drive yesterday. The interesting thing is, there’s no cover art, just a plain cover with the name of the book, etc etc. After the debacle we went through over the long hair issue, I don’t know what to think. And I’m almost afraid to ask. So I guess I’ll just hope for the best when the book comes out. But in the meantime, I used an outfit called Iconix
to do a business card. Worked with a designer named Kelley Cowan. I am very impressed with the results. What do think?
And last but not least, Happy Birthday to fellow critiquer and all around good guy, Jeff Shelby.
