August 15 2008 Fiction Writing Newsletter


Our Mystery Books Editor, Karm, pointed out the really bizarre behaviour of some authors, including gaming the Amazon review system and harrassing reviewers. Frankly, I'm disgusted by what I've spent the morning reading about, although I have to admit that it was very entertaining reading. I've included the links to the most interesting blog posts on the forum.

Here's the article I just had to write after all this:

Professional author behaviour online

Unprofessional behaviour can ruin your reputation as an author. Ensure that you are ready to present the best side of yourself even when you're hidden behind your computer and a seemingly anonymous Internet username.

Here is the thread with the links to the blog posts about the badly behaving authors:

And here is Karm's original post about the situation:

Let us know what you think of this!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
