The nicotine delivery device industry leach onto Twas

Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, November 2, 2012,
In a google alert I discovered that the nicotine pushers are using the media hype of this story to push nicotine delivery devices. They issued a media release that was picked up by at least one paper. " Santa smoking removed from iconic poem after decades, changed to protect children. Leave Santa alone, there are better ways to quit. Do you think history should be changed to protect children ? " Leave Santa Alone. 

This is classic nicotine marketing manipulation. Remember when Central Park wen...

Posted by pamela mccoll on Saturday, August 11, 2012,
I have printed this book in the old fashioned way - by the truck load and I have them in distribution channels across North Smerica the old fashioned way. Yes we printed with FSC paper and vegetable inks.  I met a woman last night at a reception who was a first time publisher who was going to print on demand. It is something I don't know alot about and I wonder how this works out financially for a writer or self publisher.  I find it not impossible but challenging to be a small publisher espe...
