I got an email today from a writer hoping to interest me in her erotic paranormal novel. I requested that my name be removed from this mailing list. We’ll see if my request is granted.
I know that my email was harvested during the recent Austen Extravaganza. Being a good little troop, I went almost daily to various Austen-related websites and left comments to encourage other authors. I remember being put off by this author’s post and her book, but left a nebulous response. This author also tried to pitch her novel on the Austen Author’s Facebook page. Her post was removed. The AuAu page is for the authors and their readers. This gal is a marketing machine, I must say.
Be careful when you leave comment on blogs. I think from now on, even in the Austenworld, I’m going to make up an email address.
Take care–Susan Kaye
