A while back, there were a couple of publishers expressing interest in having YSaC do a book. Of course, this is back when you could sneeze on the internet and someone would want to publish it in dead tree form. Sadly, nothing ever came of that, and these days Dan and I frequently come across blog-to-books in the get-these-the-hell-out-of-our-store bins and say to each other, “Really? Really? CatsLickingFrogsWearingPartyHats.com got a book, and we didn’t? Really?”
It’s just as well, though, because long-term readers will remember that one of the problems the publishers assessed with our site was that it was too eclectic. The major kiss of death, though, was that it was too intellectual. One potential publisher pointed to a post in which we described French Prudential as the Maginot Line of furniture and decided that we were too esoteric for their needs. Then Google decided we were porn* and it was basically all over but the opera.
But not to worry! I can apparently get a job writing a book for Ms. 10 star license holder. Our market domination will not be thwarted! The fact that she is multiple women will really help with distributions in malls — she can cover more of them at once! We’ll be on Oprah’s bestseller list in no time, I can feel it.
*Seriously, it was that post that made Google decide we were a porn site.
