I see an author post a laundry list of things I can do to help them and their career.
I read, a lot. I review very frequently. I talk to people on social media and recommend books nearly every single day. Quite simply, I don't have the time or $$ to read every single book I'd like to.
I don't memorize release dates or have spread sheets. I use Twitter and FB to help me out with new releases. I get paid every two weeks like a lot of folks here in the US. Usually one check goes to rent - the other for various bills and expenses. I don't always have $ on hand to purchase a book the minute it releases.
I don't have a lot of shelf space either. (Actually the space I have now is quite luxurious, but it won't always be this way) Purchasing e-books has helped immensely with this problem.
I get very annoyed when I see those lists because honestly - I do everything in my somewhat feeble power to make sure an author I like gets promoted, or heard & recommended. When I see those lists, it makes me feel like I'm not doing enough. Like I could be doing more. And then I don't feel like helping anymore.
I'm not your bitch. Or worker bee. I'm not a means to an end for you to achieve success. That's how those posts come across. (This comes courtesy from a traditionally pubbed author)
