Dear Writer, Rejected: Thanks for your blog, which I recently discovered. When I received the press release below — not once, but twice — I thought of LROD. I know nothing about this writer or his book, but I hope the misspellings in the release ("tiles and tribulations"?) are intentional somehow. Just for fun, I blogged about it and stuck in a shoutout to you here. Anyway, thanks again, and maybe I'll contribute a rejection (one of the ones I get, not the ones I give to people who mistakenly send our paper fiction) one of these days.
Okay, take a deep breath, here comes the most amazing press release ever released into the wild (the subject line alone exhausts me):

Unbelievably, I was fed up with the byzantine quest of trying to get a book published. So, I (Stephen Markley) decided to cut to the chase and simply write a hyperkinetic, high-concept memoir about trying to publish a book — Publish This Book, (that book to be precise) out March 2010.
