Got an email from an author last night, pretty much demanding that I review his book.
He asked 1 question (do you still review books?) and not a please or thank you in sight! I ask that authors email me with the synopsis of their books first then if I'm interested I'll let them know.
This author emailed their book to me and included a shortened link to their books page. I don't know about you, but I don't click on shortened links outside Twitter because they don't need to be shortened and could be a link to a virus!
I'll review the book, but it will just have to wait its turn until I've read the 5 other books I've already got waiting for me. It takes 5 seconds to type 'please' and another 5 seconds to type 'thank you' but this author was so overly self confident that he forgot to be polite and follow instructions!
I'm doing you a favour after all, so you want to get on the good side of me!
