Badly behaving authors

They're out there! Hopefully not in here...

A new group has been set up on Goodreads, designed to name and shame naughty authors. I think such groups are a GOOD THING. Poor behaviour gives indie authors a terrible reputation, and that makes me sad. I hope that the BBA group on Goodreads will work as a sort of clean up operation, and hopefully becomes renowned enough for new authors to hear about it and learn from the mistakes of others.

If you've ever had an author write abrasive comments all over your reviews, had fans descend upon you for disliking their hero's work or discovered that an author is writing their own 5-star reviews you can now have a moan about it.

The group is here
