Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

End book embargo to Cuba

Reblogged from Olga Godim:

Mark Coker of Smashwords wrote this post on his blog about ending the Cuban embargo in the area of books and publishing. He started a petition to that effect, and the post contains a link to it, alongside some other interesting links. He also sent a mass email to everyone who ever published through Smashwords, informing us all of what's going on. I wanted to share this piece of news.
