Please don’t do this

Don’t self publish.

But if you do self-publish, don’t publish something about “Bradley Bear, Theresa Turtle, and Oliver Owl and the other Forest Friends. [Children] will easily identify with and respond to the characters as they learn important life values such as strength, determination, and perseverance throughout the story.”

[Full dislcosure: Someone who used to work at one of my publishers used to talk about “Timmy the Turtle Needs Therapy” books]

But if you do self-publish a book about Theresa Turtle, please don’t harvest my name from someplace send me an unsolicited email telling me I need to buy it right away and giving me no way to opt out from your mailing list that I never asked to be on.
