The language used by the author was completely rude and inappropriate, complete with profanities. The author was obviously very upset, and out of patience with "bloggers [who] think they can do whatever they want f**k whoever else." I don't really understand why, at all.
Let me show you what I'm talking about:
If you had a hard time reading the email, here's what it said:
"To whoever you are,
My name is [blank] I'm the author of [blank] and I just saw the cover of my book [blank] on your Facebook. I didn't ask you to put it there. I think it's inexcusable for you to think you can just take my sh*t and post them wherever like that. I didn't give you permission and I want you to remove it immediately. That's stealing. You're stealing my work and I will report you. I hate how you bloggers think you can just do whatever you want f**k whoever else. This is my livelihood you're f**king with and that's just bullsh*t. I'm giving you until this afternoon to take my book cover and all the links off everywhere you shared it or I will get a lawyer.
This is your only warning.
[Name is Blacked Out]"
I've seen this happen before, plenty of times, and I just don't understand it. For the authors out there - would you/have you reacted like this to seeing your book shared/promoted somewhere? Fellow bloggers, have you had something like this happen to you? Let us know in the comments below - I'm curious!
