I generally don’t voice opinions on the more political events that happen in the blogosphere, but I do want to discuss this “authors commenting on reviews” topic a little bit. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers putting up an “Authors Welcome” post. Those posts made me think more thoroughly about how I feel about this blog.
You are totally welcome to comment on a book review to disagree with me, just don’t be a jerk.
I don’t care if you are the author of the book, rabid fan, or just someone who had a different opinion than me. As long as you aren’t a jerk, we’re all good. As long as you are willing to agree to disagree, we’re all good. Sound good? Oh and just so we’re clear, being condescending about anyone’s personal opinions and experiences (including other commenters!) is a jerk move.
And now back to our regularly scheduled program!
