TIME FOR A GOOD OLD RANT!
I don't like links in direct messages on Facebook or Twitter, ESPECIALLY AFTER A PERSON HAS JUST 'BEFRIENDED' ME!
The second awful thing was to ask me, 'what do you write?'
Use your eyes, are you so self-absorbed in your overly aggressive sales pitch that you actually haven't bothered to see all the books I have out there?! They're on my facebook profile and author page and twitter.
Poor you! Maybe you thought by moving too much, fingers, head--you would get whiplash. Or is it possible you broke your fingers so you can't use a keyboard to google anything?
I think not because you were able to type and be pushy.
You have the nerve to ask for someone's 'friendship' and then flog your books! Ugh!
Major no, no as it results in instant unfriending.
Get real, pushy people. Market like the rest of us. Don't be disrespectful and use people. You turn off professional writers and I would think obliterate any chance of a sale.
My advice is to be professional, have respect for yourself and others.
You won't do it a second time to me, that's for sure.
And no, I won't share your link. That's a given.
