I routinely Google my name and the name of my book to check for reviews that might have been posted without my knowledge. A few weeks ago and again this morning, I received a Google alert that I and another fellow author were mentioned in two blogs that critizised authors for conducting virtual book tours. Niether of us were contacted to ensure that the information they posted was accurate.
I tried to post a comment this morning to one of them, but as yet, it has not been approved by the blog author--I'm not surprised.
I posted my comment to the article including links to the two sites in my blog, http://mstephens-musings.blogspot.com for anyone interested in reading it.
I'm sure this type of thing has happened to others. Just wanted to share.
