The weirdest thing happened to me today. I was on my book twitter and I tweeted that I finished a debut novel by one author and then was gonna read a debut novel by another author. Decided to tag both authors. Lo and behold not just a few seconds later, I was blocked on Twitter by the author whose book I was going to read next. I had been scrolling through her profile right before I tweeted (to double check if I spelled her book's title correctly) and was not blocked. Less than ten seconds (my tweet had a "9s" timestamp on it on my feed) I was blocked.
What the flying fuck? It's your debut novel and you're blocking someone who wants to give you money and read your book.
I thought maybe she was one of the authors who hates fan tagging but she has retweeted other people saying they were reading/had read her book. So nope.
I thought maybe there was something she didn't like about my account. Nothing offensive, my last tweets were about cancelling Kindle Unlimited, my profile info just said I was into books and true crime podcasts. So... I don't think so?
My last thought is that she had a beef with the other author I tagged (who did not respond and did not block me).
But still. What the ever loving fuck. I'm definitely not buying her book now. Screw that noise.
