Authors behaving badly

| E:541

Lately, a number of authors who have high profiles have been doing some less than awesome things online. We thought we'd address what to do, as a reader, when authors you've previously supported turn out to be not great human beings. We also discuss the concept of book reviews and how to take star ratings with a grain of salt, and make a plea to readers to do a little research before diving into books you think might be problematic. We'll get back to regularly scheduled book recommending next week but we'd love your thoughts on this episode in the reviews or just send us a message.
