Another Day, Another Form-letter

I just received another form-letter. I am annoyed.

I know that everyone starting out at any profession can get frustrated.

I can, to some extent, understand that editors may see this as a most cost effective answer to actually doing their jobs.

This may sound a little harsh, but the form-letter is an insult to authors.

Space Marines

My name is Christopher Geoffries. Until recently, I worked as an archaeologist/anthropologist in South Asia. A bit of a breakdown and a diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome.

I needed a new gig or I wasn’t going to be able to by the ramen.

The only thing I have published, so far, is a single haiku. I am working HARD to become proficient at my new profession.

I was shocked and dismayed to read of Games Workshop's attack on our shared cultural heritage. They are attempting to steal our very words.

'space marines' indeed.

In protest, I have put together a little 100,000+ novel about space marines. I call it Chris's Space Marine Extravaganza! It is available at Smashwords here for free.
