Write a Book--Together

Animal Person

In " Is This the Future of the Digital Book? " The one that caught my eye as useful for vegans and the animal rights community is: WEBook, a venture-backed start-up in New York, allows people to collaborate on writing books and is working on new ways to let readers give writers real-time feedback on their work. Check out WEBook 's site, where you can read and vote on the writing of others, become a top reviewer like at Amazon, and submit a book to be published.

Becoming Sensitized to Animals in Books

Critter News

Over the years, I've noticed that the role of animals jumps out at me in any book I read. It's a book by Tracy Kidder about Dr. Paul Farmer, an international health advocate who made his name from his work in Haiti and his fight against Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR). While his work is amazing, I personally believe he has a real martyr complex and a huge ego that is carefully hidden in the book, but that's another issue. It's stuck in my mind and tainted the book.

New Book on Animal Rights Activism

Critter News

The most constructive part of the book (and possibly the most shocking to those who are only peripherally familiar with the vegetarian movement and who might therefore expect radicalism) is the authors' discussion of tolerance in all activities.

One guy runs Vegan Outreach and the other is a VP at PETA (they have those?).

"Earthlings" Available as Audio Book

Critter News

For those who can't handle the visuals, now it's available as an audio book. "Earthlings" is a film about animal abuse narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. I've never watched it, but heard it talked about on a vegan podcast. It's supposed to be so intense, it turns people into vegans (Ellen DeGeneres for one.) Earthlings is a feature-length documentary about how dependent human beings are on animals, primarily in five key areas: pets, food, clothing, entertainment and science.

New Book on Ethics of Meat-Eating

Critter News

I'm trying to come up with a book for my book club about animal rights. Sounds pretty powerful. What do I choose? All of them are meat eaters, two because their "doctors" told them they had to eat meat. One is a huge supporter of animal research. I don't want anything too radical and was thinking about Dominion by Matthew Scully. But now we have "Eating Animals,"by Jonathan Safran Foer.

Looking for Books about Animal Experimentation

Critter News

I've finally decided to take the plunge and really learn about animal experimentation. It's a horrible topic and I post news articles about the abuses from time to time. But I want to be able to argue about it intelligently, citing science, not just morals. Apparently, there is a lot of argument out there than animal experimentation is even good for humans. Many times tests fail. A drug may work on an animal, but fail miserably on a human. Or vice versa.

New Book Looks at Humanity's Role in the Next Extinction

Publish Your Own AR Book or Magazine

My clients have always been a combination of experts who already have book deals with large publishers, and entrepreneurs who say Why on Earth would I let them take so much of my potential profits? The latter form a publishing company, get their own block of ISBNs (like Social Security numbers for publications of all kinds), and print and distribute the books themselves (or outsource those parts).

Well, she apparently did such a great job convincing the folks at the Minnesota Book Awards that you can claim to love animals and then send them to slaughter, that not only was she a finalist for their award, but she won it. Did I thank the Loft Literary Center for all its support, or the Friends of the Saint Paul Library for hosting the MN Book Awards?
