BBA: Miscellany & Minutae

The swell of BBA activity behind the idea that someone has the nerve to not like their books is starting to look like a tidal wave bordering upon ELE.  One of the reasons for this is the that other  SPAs (self-published authors) and even traditionally published ones don’t seem to be speaking up against this behavior.  It’s the idea of policing yourselves, and the lack of other authors calling out their comrades to check this behavior is what’s acerbating the issues.  Peer pressure would go a long way here.  So to that end, here’s a few shining examples of authors who should check themselves before they wreck themselves, and some of their comrades who’ve told them so.

Thank you, John Scalzi.
