And, yes, those people who will not mention or promote my books while I've always promoted theirs? Guess what? Yes, I'm now getting them asking me if I'd promote their attendance and tables at some of these events?
I've made it abundantly clear that too many people have had a free ride on me for too long -decades in some cases. This has to be a two-way deal or nothing. I have to make a living, too,m so they want to get all prima donna about it well, I'm not going to bed crying.
JUST DO NOT ASK.
