In Blog

Hello Friends and fellow writers,

I’m wondering if any of you have ever had a bunch of people suddenly comment on your blog because a teacher assigned your book and they were told they could get extra credit if you commented back? This just happened to me this week and it was somewhat disconcerting. One girl got progressively nastier and nastier, telling me that if I didn’t respond she would blame me for not getting into the college of her choice. A few others were more polite. Someone else called me a “doushe” (their spelling, obviously). I’ve removed the comment feature from the post but hate to have to do that considering most days I have really nice comments from regular readers.

Laurie, I think maybe you had this problem once? If so, how did you deal with it? I’m grateful for any advice you guys might have.

Thanks!
