E-novel nets author lots of free time 

More intrigue about a self-published digital novel we mentioned a few weeks ago.

"Accountable to None," by a writer with the pseudonym Ashley Fontainne, stirred up a bit of interest when it hit Kindle with a breezy tale of intrigue and evil in an accounting firm in a Southern city.

It's fiction, people, fiction. Particularly that stuff about rape and all. But as it happens, it wasn't long before people were noting a few minor similarities between people in the book and real people in Little Rock. We reported that here. (Doesn't every workplace have a workaholic, a controlling manager, an office politician, a male chauvinist, a striving bombshell?) Anyway, next thing you know the author was called in for a meeting with an unhappy boss.

The book was even pulled from the Amazon list for a time for revisions. But now it's back, on both Kindle and Nook, the Barnes and Noble digital reader. We can tell you that the author is free to work full-time on her fiction, no longer employed in the accounting field.

  • 'Circuit breaker' legal

    When we first asked Gov. Mike Beebe about the "circuit breaker" idea out of Arizona (automatically opting out of Medicaid expansion if the feds reduce the matching rates in the future), he said it was fine but noted that states can already opt out at any time, an assurance he got in writing from the feds.

  • Church goes to school in Conway

    An interesting controversy is brewing in Conway Public Schools, periodically a scene of discord as more liberal constituents object to the heavy dose of religion that powerful local churches have tried to inject into the schools, particularly in sex education short on science and long on abstinence.
