"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane
Over and over and over again people are told what type of behavior is considered professional.
Today I got two abusive emails from an author because there is a flaw in Death in Common.
I missed it going over the proofs. So now I guess I am damned forever for my stupidity. The page numbers were set too close to the bottom so as not to crowd the poems and they vanished due to the page cropping by the printer.
I will not and will never put up with abusiveness from an author.
Writers are a dime a dozen and easily replaced.
EDITED TO ADD: THERE ARE NOW SEVEN EMAILS.
