Sell Your Body... Sell Your Book

A couple of interesting finds on the net.

First, sex is a billion dollar plus industry. The new anthology, Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boys: Professional Writings on Life, Love, Sex, and Money, gives voice to an industry frequently looked down upon in society (yet ironically utilized so frequently).

Second, publishing is a billion dollar plus industry. A new (to me) website I am enjoying is Pimp My Novel, a blog written by a publishing sales rep, to help novelists (and aspiring ones) see what happens once a publisher acquires your product and how it gets prepped for selling to bookstores and other outlets.

No matter your preferences, prudishness, or politics, everyone needs to make a living... some go conventional and some go unconventional... as in a career in the creative arts!
