I’m so furious about this that I’m blogging direct from my phone.
I got an email at ‘theviewfrommykindle’ and at this blog saying that if I didn’t retract the review of (book) that they would post a retaliatory one star review on *everything* I ever publish.
Extortion is wrong – but the way I look at it – if this author does this, I can send the email onto the review sites to let them know.
My advice? If an author tries to extort you, keep the emails and inform the ‘official’ organisation if they carry through.
