A traditionally published author on my friendslist here at LJ has been posting twice a day–and the posts always include a big photo of his/her (I’m not telling) latest novel’s cover. It was nice to see the cover the first couple of times. Yes, I know your book is coming out. Nice photo. But by the third or fourth time, I found myself paging past that damn rainbowy pic pretty quickly. Now it seems it has been ten or fifteen times, and *BOOM* I have lost patience. I can’t stand to look at that cover EVER AGAIN.
It would have been sufficient to mention the dang book a couple of times and then start just putting a link (I suppose) at the end of the post where I could click or ignore.
A Word To The Wise Is Enough.
For that matter . . . ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
