I'm sorry that there was no new and exciting post today. :-(
I have been feeling a tad overwhelmed, mostly due to my own obsession with reading and my greed to read every potentially good book that I can find.
Anyway, I try very hard to post on time and it irritates me that I signed up for a post for today and the promotional group that I signed up with did not send the information, did not respond when I inquired about it numerous times and thinking back never sent me a confirmation or denial of my being involved.Grrr!
I think it is only fair that people promoting authors and signing people up for tours and such should be respectful of the time that we bloggers spend to get the post set up, scheduled and promoted on social media.
I understand that there are gremlins that eat emails but multiple emails? That is obviously rudeness or laziness. If the tour was canceled an email should have been sent out. If my chosen date was not needed, an email should have been sent out. When someone repeatedly tries to contact you even if I had sent it to the wrong group (which I did not!) the right thing to do would be to email them back and clear up the confusion.
Am I wrong? Is it suddenly okay to just blow off the people that help you promote?
I'm sorry but they expect me to have my post up on time is it not fair of me to expect them to let me know the details one way or the other?
Any thoughts? Have you had any problems with this kind of thing?
I work with many different promoters to offer a wide variety of genres, giveaways, and authors. I do everything in my power to keep them straight including marking the possible dates off on my calender and labeling which group the post is for. I don't think that I am asking to much to expect a confirmation about said possible scheduled dates or a response when I have questions. I know that they are busy too and I try not to bother them unless it pertains to them but I just can't find any justification for them to ignore multiple emails from me.
Sorry for the rant but I am overly frustrated and felt the need to share.
I'm just wondering why asking for human decency is apparently expecting too much.
