Just had my hand figuratively slapped....twice.
My first infractions was when I picked a winner for a release day contest, and being the fair-minded soul that I am, I let random.org pick the winner. And my winner happened to be another author.
Up popped a comment that she wasn't eligible; this contest was for 'readers and new people'. So I guess my efforts to win any of the prizes are in vain?
My 2nd infraction was a conversation on on one of my posts. One of the other authors was curious about my world building, and I guess our conversation went a bit over my time. I'm sorry; for the first 15 minutes of 'my time', I had to deal with people still commenting on other threads, so *blows raspberry*
Okay, that's a bit childish.
A PM popped up, asking me if she and I would take our conversation elsewhere. No big deal, right? In fact, I needed to get off so I can go get ink for the printer.
No, what stung is the fact I got my fingers slapped twice within the span of five minutes.
Now you know why I don't throw release parties on social media.
