I’m happy to announce that, as promised, the full source code for “I Write Like” is available under the ISC-like license (in short: do whatever you like, just mention the author).
IWL is written in Racket programming language. Happy hacking!

LA Times blogger Carolyn Kellogg wrote an article called “Independent author John Locke joins Amazon’s million-Kindle-seller club, but at what cost?” which includes ignorant claims such as:
“Locke makes less money with his 99-cent gambit than he would selling the same number of books with a traditional publisher.”
Are you sure he’d sell the same number of books? Why didn’t he price his books at $100 then?
Dear Carolyn, may I point you to this very useful article on Wikipedia: Supply and demand. Look at the curve. Read the explanation. I’m sure what you learn from it will improve your future articles and prevent you from writing bogus claims.

Amanda Hocking is 27 years old. She has 9 self-published books to her name, and sells 100,000+ copies of those ebooks per month.
If a writer of prose knows enough of what he is writing about he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them. The dignity of movement of an ice-berg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water. A writer who omits things because he does not know them only makes hollow places in his writing.
