A Note of Caution…

Posted on: December 6, 2008

Just to demonstrate that I’m big enough to be able to backtrack on things I’ve said, and daft enough to say things that may need a backtrack.

In a post entitled ‘Six Degrees of Separation’  I suggested that a viral e-mail would be a good way of publicising your book. I voiced that on a writer’s forum and someone rightly raised the question of SPAM and the law. I checked it out with Jane Smith at ‘How Publishing Really Works’ and it appears that, yes, this could lead you into problems. By all means tell your friends about your book by e-mail, get them to recommend you to their contacts, but do not send loads of unsolicited e-mails to people who don’t want them- or you could end up with a hefty fine…


… or even behind bars.
