I have a Kindle and I buy loads of e-books. Like many of you, I often download books to support fellow authors, even if said book is outside my area of interest. The backlog of e-books I own is, well, it's embarrassing. Amazon sometimes informs me that a new version of an e-book is available. "Significant editorial changes have been made," the notifications usually say. The frequency of these has been increasing, but I rarely take them up on it. The reason I don't is twofold. Partly, I don't want to lose the original version of the book, and the update is apparently an either-or proposition. If they'd give me the updated copy and also let me keep the first, I'd be more inclined to accept. The other reason I decline is on principle.

IWSG November - Sticks and Stones

This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post for Nov ember. Alex's awesome co-hosts for Nov ember are: LG Keltner, Donna Hole,   Lisa Buie-Collard   and SL Hennessy!   Please stop by their blogs and say thank you.  I'm a member of a small writer's group that provides accountability and encouragement for each of its members to reach his or her goal. One way we motivate each other is to email weekly quotes to the group on our assigned day.  This was the one I shared last week. Maybe it will encourage you.
