You like an author or you stand in line to get an autograph or you just happen to meet one at an author event, panel, etc. and you realize they’re really a pompous jerk. They seem way to enamored with their own persona. Do you stop reading them? Do you just wonder how someone with so little social skills could write insightful works? Does it matter what an author is like in person if they know how to write? Do we divorce ourselves from discourteous behavior or boorishness and appreciate the written word?
What say you????? Thumbs up to the writer or thumbs down.
