Sorry authors, this ain’t Las Vegas. If you’ve picked up the most recent edition of RT’s magazine, there is a little piece about authors behaving badly on the internet. Told in broad, but descriptive terms, the article poses three examples:
- A Bestselling Author asking for bank statements of an ebook publisher
- A “fanged” author referring to the stupidity of readers
- A popular author angry about the commentary over grammatical errors in books
Guess the reading world is smaller than we suppose or the internet has longer arms than we suppose. One or the other.
