#AUTHORS – STOP POSTING EXTRACTS OF YOUR WORK ONLINE ADVICE…

I’m growing concerned at the number of authors who are publishing extracts of their works – either already published, or Work in Progress – online.

I can understand that their intention is to attract readers to their stories and possibly buy their book(s).

HOWEVER

You REALLY need to know what could happen if you do this…

  1. I’m disappointed in you Ape. Please do not post any future articles without double-checking to whom/what they actually apply and how. Otherwise, you’re just fear-mongering and trying to attract readers via sensationalism, like RARE or BUZZFEED or whatever. You’re better than this.

      • I do not think you are a “Sensationalist,” usually, Chris. That’s the reason that the headline for that article and how misleading it was disappointed me.

        I respect your site and your choices a lot; you are a “key” informant for this indie! So, I engage with you rather than just shake my head and go away.

        Best to you,

        • because I’m not an author or in any way connected to the publishing industry, I can only draw attention to what I read on other reputable blogs Sally – I’m sorry but I get so concerned about how Amazon treat authors that when I see something they’ve done to one, I try to alert everyone else.

          • Okay. Noted. There is a huge difference in the way Amazon “treats” authors who choose Select vs. Direct, and that is the main point of this confusion, today. Bears noting.

            LOL.
