It just won’t go away. The #lendink debacle continues. In a recent post, I apologized for my own misinformation and asked for understanding from the mob threatening authors who were misinformed. I am flattered that my lil’ ‘ol blog seems to carry any weight Judging by my stats, I still don’t think I really have that many facebook or twitter or blog followers. However, an apology is an apology. Fascinating how one can write it in black and white and yet it is still not accepted. The written word is read in the frame of mind of the reader. Anger begets anger. When I am wrong, I am wrong. At this point, after much more information has surfaced, it is clear that I jumped to conclusions about my own book, FLYING SOLO, being included in the books on LendInk. I sought information from the owner of that site, Dale Porter. I received no return emails from him. I asked author groups, bloggers, and fellow writers. The rage of angels ensued. If I was a party to that, mea culpa.
I wrote a blog about piracy, which does exist. It appears that LendInk is a legitimate site. My apologies to LendInk if I was misinformed. My sincerest mea culpa for including LendInk at all the my post. Clear and simple. Let’s all move forward now.
Humility has been extended. Let’s show some courtesy and dignity amidst our community. End the slamming. Let’s all be kind, but vigilant. #showthelove4authors
