you wrote a book, that's nice. real authors don't plug the shit out of themselves. that is what publishers are for. it is a bit classier. just a tip.

If you can't have faith in yourself, how can anyone else? There's nothing wrong or not classy about plugging yourself. Besides, he's sharing reviews that other people have written because most of the people who read this stuff are anxious to read his book and want to hear about how great it is. Besides, he wrote the damn thing...I figure that gives him the right to spread the word more than anyone else. What book have you written?

Thanks for the tip, Todd. I don't know if you have ever met a "real author," but if you do know any, I suggest you tell him/her/them your theory about "classy" book promotion, i.e., leaving the plugging entirely to the publisher. My prediction: they will laugh, and laugh.

I had a long post about how Stephen King still has to work the talkshow circuit and pimps the hell out of his projects on his website, but it became ugly and Todd. Snap!

NEver take advide from a guy who names himself after third-rate Sienfeld characters. (i.e. TODD GACK)

That's the second time I've seen you called 'legendary'. It just makes me think of you dressed up like Tom Cruise in Legend.
