Although that is a picture of the mixed mystery meat we’ve all had at one time or another, I’m talking about online spam, or advertising that becomes a nuisance, kind of like me at a party after a couple drinks.
A group of people, writers, who are probably all really nice people, often transform from these nice people into evil werewolf spammers under the light of a
full moon new book release. As you may know, yesterday I released my first book in 3 1/2 years and it was published by an actual publisher! As you can imagine, I’m pretty excited about this and want to please my publisher by having a lot of people read my book so that he invites me back to write another.
I realize that the blogosphere is at least 50% writers who are all telling you to buy their books,
but you should buy mine because it’s way better than theirs. but I don’t want to become that werewolf spammer that forces people to avoid their blog because it becomes about nothing other than their book.
So, I’m going to ask you, my wonderful readers of many years, if I get a little too spammy, to feel free to tap me on the shoulder in the form of a comment or e-mail and say, Phil, dial it down a notch on the book promo. Just write the funny stuff you usually do and the readers will come.
Have a great Sunday everyone! (buy my book!) ~Phil
