re-blog: How NOT to Gain Readers & Influence Bloggers

Indie authors….this is mandatory reading. There’s a fine line between marketing your eBook and stalking!

I’m an Indie author. Proud of it. Loving the fact I was able to quit my day job and write full time. I work hard at marketing my eBooks but I try not to be an ass about hawking my novels every 15 minutes. I hate it when Twitter and FB are gorged with repeated attempts at self promotion by a single author.  I understand why they do it but it doesn’t make me like it any better.

That being said, the blog link above makes me shudder. The guy Meg writes about gives all Indie authors a bad name!
