I have noticed that most authors who try to sell there merchandise claim that there is always a “death threat” against them. Could t this just be a good advertisemnent angle for sales?
Generally I would say it is or is twisting the truth of the matter by taking more trollish messages seriously or using past things that happened and not updating to current stuff. I think most of it dies down after a while and you just get the drunk Christian redneck shit posting more than anything.
Right. It seems redundant to see the same thing time after time
You can always count on drunk redneck shit posting and just say you choose to interrupt it in x fashion by taking it seriously. It builds hype and marketing usually for the more edgy audience willing to shill out for anything like that without a second thought. Leads to more ideological and edgy language in otherwise good works than I would prefer but I also tend to be towards the more clear cut objective side of explaining things obviously. So personal taste there.
