I’ve posted a bunch of things about this, but I’m going to say it again.
Authors: I know I have followers who never like or comment here, but who read. And that’s great.
However, then I get authors who contact me for reviews, and others who contact me to ask something else related to books, but the problem is that I don’t see the messages until weeks later.
I said something similar in my last post. I’ve been overseas, had people contact me to ask if they can meet for coffee in Paris or somewhere, and I haven’t seen the messages until weeks after I returned home!
If you want a review or just have a question, you can contact me through Goodreads (I do say there that I’m not accepting review books at the moment, but it isn’t always the case), or by leaving a comment on one of my three blogs (HERE, HERE and HERE), or by getting to me through one of my two Pinterest accounts (just comment under any picture). If you want to be more private, just ask, and I’m pretty much okay with giving my email address to anyone.
Facebook is a write-off for me. I’ve just unfriended a whole lot of people I’ve known for twenty-five years because they were all supporting the “istandwithrussia” hashtag (it’s mostly Obama haters, but hating Obama doesn’t mean you have to support Putin, the modern-day Hitler!). It was the last straw for me. Seeing people I liked, supporting Vladimir Putin, knowing I was Ukrainian… I actually cried, and I almost never cry – not even when I dislocated my knee and broke my arm at exactly the same time!
I don’t visit Facebook anymore. I’ve logged my mother’s computer onto my account so SHE can access news from family and mutual friends. If someone “likes” your post, it’s almost always my mother, not me.
I’m SO lucky I actually saw the Facebook message from the cat-rescuer who took our gorgeous, pregnant stray cat!
I’m in the process of unlinking my Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts from my other accounts. I deleted my Tumblr account on Friday night.
Whatever you do, do NOT be offended if you don’t hear back from me. The only times I don’t reply are when I’ve not seen your message!
