But why is my Karma so low?
« Reply #240 on: June 17, 2008, 08:50:27 AM »

Okay, I get why I'm a "cub" (new to the forum, fewer posts, right :-\). 

But why is my karma so low?  At least it isn't zero now, but I'd really rather have good karma  :(

Karma goes up one point when somebody clicks "applaud" on one of your messages.  Most of the time few of us think much about the applaud-smite-karma foolishness, but sometimes it happens.  Hardly anybody ever "smites," which would lower karma, but applause happens occasionally.  As for such matters as "cub," "ink-stained wretch," etc. I think they just represent a mechanical commentary on how many  postings one has made.

Hope I'm doing this post right. I was on the forum but have been away a couple years. Still working on refining my novel "School of Lies."

Just rejoined this group. At least I think this is the group I belonged to a few years ago (the Zott board) My first book, L.A. Heat was published by Alyson Books in 2006. I just revised and reissued it in e-book format available in Mobibook or Kindle editions. I love the way e-books can give new life to out of print books.

Delighted to have you with us again.  Very belated congratulations on "L.A. Heat", and on the new your revised format.  Hope "School of Lies" is going well.

Hi, I'm Cameron Cay.  I posted over on the Medical questions forum and was asked to introduce myself over here.  I'm a multipublished author (35 books) who is in the process of switching from genre fiction to suspense.  I live in Texas and have been writing for eighteen years.  If you're reading this and you're a doctor, please jump over to the medical forum and help me out with a plot problem!  Thanks, Cameorn

I hope it's a mystery.  Have you been writing other stuff?
