New Friend

Oh look, someone has just friended me on LJ. How nice!

Gosh, this person must be popular; he has 774 other friends.

Hold on a minute- only 35 of his other friends have friended him back.

And that's because he's not a person at all, but a vanity publishing outfit.

A vanity publishing outfit whose copywriter writes English as if it were a second language and thinks "voila" is spelled "viola".

And whose publishing triumphs include a "passionate novel" about Arabian horses called Tails Carried High.
