Blog Spamming

This takes some chutzpah. S.G. Kiner is trying to promote her self-published book by spamming the comment sections of blogs all over the Internet. Take, for instance, this comment that she left on author Laura Caldwell's post at The Outfit:

"The Hong Kong Connection" is a legal thriller about a gutsy female attorney who takes on high ranking International officials. It's a taut, rollercoaster of a ride from New York to Palm Beach to Washington D.C. to Hong Kong. The plot is expertly woven, the characters persuasive, and the dialogue snappy and spot on.

This comment, of course, had absolutely nothing to do with the subject of Laura's post. It is, however, an example of inappropriate and stupid behavior by an aspiring author. First Kiner was dumb enough to fall for the Strategic Publishing scam (the latest incarnation of Robert Fletcher's infamous Writers Literary Agency). Now Kiner is compounding that mistake by ineptly trying to leach readers off of another author. The only thing she's succeeded in promoting is her own rudeness and ineptitude.

  1. “The only thing she’s succeeded in promoting is her own rudeness and ineptitude.”
    And that’s a good thing, isn’t it? Saves us the trouble.

  2. I caught this as I was moderating comments and did not post it, of course. It certainly had the opposite effect with me than what she wanted. Thanks for bringing it to the attention of a larger audience.

  3. comments like that get deleted on my blog… you can go over and check to make sure I’m not lying if you’d like… heh heh

  4. Do you mean she actually posted a review of her own book on the website of a bestselling author? Wow! I think Laura Caldwell should post a suggestion on this interloper’s site that she should refer to Emily Post.
