You're not allowed to promote your own books in this forum. You need to do it in "Meet Our Authors". If Amazon sees your post they'll delete it.

Not to mention that many people have Do not buy lists for self promoters. I suggest removing your post before you get added to these lists and the next time, check the forum rules before promoting. :)

If the way you wrote your post is any indication of the writing in your book, I'll pass.

Wow. Published in paper form 10 years ago. One 1-star review.

Please.

If that is your understanding of what "promoting" is, you are destined for disappointment.

Sophistry won't win you readers on most Amazon fora. In fact, such childishness will most likely put you on many people's "Never Buy List."

I know you are now on mine.

EtA: In case you don't recognize the term: Sophistry - a subtle, tricky, superficially plausible, but generally fallacious method of reasoning

You ARE promoting your book by Amazon's definition, or any definition. Perhaps u should have read the guidelines--instead of assuming you're a speshul exception.

Cassie Anne says:
You ~are~ promoting your book. Listing the title, with or without a hyperlink is self-promotion. And arguing with readers - your potential customers - is an odd marketing strategy.

You're welcome to post in this forum as a reader/customer, but self promotion is limited to the Meet Our Authors forum. Link at lower left.

You also posted the name of your book, and a link is not necessary to be considered self-promo. You were not ONLY stating that you like the kindle; you apparently had ulterior motives. Please stop. Here is the ONLY place you can self promo:

Way to completely deflect the problem - FAIL.

You violate the rules but call us haters. Yep. There is no way that you could possibly write anything I'd want to read.

God knows I don't like reading your posts which prove you cannot construct an argument. Therefore, you cannot construct a plausible plot or use words with any desirable effect.

Yep - "Never Buy List" again proves valuable.

More self-promoting? And, seriously, hate? WTF are you even talking about? Oh, and the word is "than," not "then."

You and your self-published, self-promoted crap are on now in the top spot of my Do Not Buy, Do Not Download Even Free lists. Nice job!

What is with this? <I would NEVER talk (bleep) about another self-published author. I'm a better person then that. :P >

Does she think we are writers or something? Does she even KNOW what forum she is using?

To borrow your term: WTF?

That's her "book"? Bwahahahahahahaha

Cassie Anne says:
Sweetie, "haters" doesn't mean what you think it means. Neither does "demean." Neither does "then."

Do you have a Kindle? You should read and use the included dictionary.

Bless your heart.

I am not a self-published author; I am a reader. I love the written word and love when those words are written with style and grace. Authors--self or traditionally published--who do that are better THAN those who don't.

There was no hate in Kris's post. She/He, like everyone else is entitled to their opinion of your efforts.

The fact that YOU responded the way you did, affects whether I or anyone else would even consider purchasing your book. As I stated earlier, you are getting yourself added to the Do Not Buy lists of a large number of people with your post and your attitude.
