What I need is a business partner! Then I should start my own publishing house…

This this this this!

Brad Vance Author

Seriously. I need someone who’s not only really really good at stuff I’m not good at, but someone who likes it, actually likes the “running a business” part. (Facebook ads, mailing lists, cultivating prerelease reviews, redoing all the EPUBs to reflect new backmatter links for each outlet, resubmitting them, tracking the updates, tracking expenses, etc.)

Ever heard of Emergenetics? When I contracted at Microsoft, everyone took the test. TL;DR it’s a test that (if you answer truthfully) lets you identify your “work type” and post it on the outside of your cube, so that people who were previously shaking their head at you, can now understand at least a little about why you think and work the way you do.

It’s a pie chart, divided into Blue (rational, mathematical), Red (empathy, emotional intuition), Yellow (creative, rule breaker/ignorer, easily bored with routine tasks) and Green (by the book, enjoys stability, can focus on repetitive work).

About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.

  1. Where can I find this test to take?


    • Nya Rawlyns says:

      In the Handbook for Marginalized Minorities? Dunno, Catherine. All I do know is I’m done with this drama and the mudslinging and willful adherence to messianic quasi-religious expectations.
      I simply refuse to tolerate people intent on creating chasms of discord, who create new pools of alienation and foster the kind of hate and nascent war-mongering rhetoric that does nothing but build walls, not bridges.
