What's Happening

Our fellow Litopian Barbara has been having trouble getting into the colony over the last couple of days. Anyone else having similar problems? Or has she been sent to the naughty chair on her own?
Please accept this public apology to Katie-Ellen. I'm trying not to go crazy over this, but I'm not doing a very good job.
Feeling mighty sorry for myself. According to the physiotherapist who looked at my new x-rays, Lumbar decompression surgery is the only treatment. He also didn't hold up much hope for my neck, and my doctor tut-tutted when she looked at xrays of my hands and recommended a surgeon.
Can't believe what I'm seeing on television, Notre Dame is burning. Just dreadful. :(
It looks like an author would have to sell at least 500 EUR of product or subscriptions per year to make a webstore worthwhile, but if a group of authors with similar audiences teamed up.. how would such authors find one another?
I was told that the Amazon POD prices are too high for India, so I looked into POD prices at pothi, an Indian POD company and for a book that Amazon charges 5.50 to print, they will do in bulk for <1.60 and individually for 3.20. For authors who want to sell to Indians through a webstore, this is important info. It might also be a good way to improve margins when selling locally.
