Here is my favorite William Carlos Williams poem.

London writer and anthologist Mitzi Szereto is the woman behind such naughty reads as Erotic Fairy Tales: a Romp Through the Classics and Wicked: Sexy Tales of Legendary Lovers, as well as the author of several best-selling erotic novels under the name M. S. Valentine. But she also has a wickedly funny blog that regularly pokes fun at the publishing world and the writing life. This week’s topic, “This Time Next Year We’ll Be Millionaires!” is about the whopping $30 dollars in Amazon’s Kindle books royalties she’s accrued since publishing on the electronic reader platform and its possibility as an alternative venue for legit writers in a tough market.
