It's my party, and I'll micro-Tweet if I want to (though it's actually called SubTweeting) {ReBlog}

@TezMillerOz often stuff is posted online before the author announces. Please check with the author before blasting info like that.

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano Jun 19

@TezMillerOz this is the fourth or fifth time you've announced one of my titles or release dates before I've had a chance to.

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano Jun 19

@TezMillerOz perhaps wait a month after the info is posted, or ask the author.

@TezMillerOz info that's up that early is usually inaccurate. You should really do the authors the courtesy of letting them announce.

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano 4m

@TezMillerOz I don't think asking you to let authors announce their own news is telling you how to blog, just asking for basic courtesy.

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano 4m

@TezMillerOz no need to micro tweet. I wasn't attacking you. I have seen how info gets leaked and authors panic. A lot goes on backstage.

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano 3m

@TezMillerOz there's an information system in house that sometimes gets leaked to amazon. Someone sees it, announces, panic ensues.

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano 3m

@TezMillerOz I have been on that side and seen other authors to through it. It would just be nice to show some courtesy. That is all.

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano 3m

@TezMillerOz nobody is telling you how to blog, how to review, etc. just to wait for authors to get to share their own news (1/2)

Lauren DeStefano@LaurenDeStefano 2m

@TezMillerOz (2/2) especially when you just said yourself what you're sharing is inaccurate.
