I've heard back from and scheduled FOUR out of the ten NY authors I contacted over two weeks ago. I figure I have two options:

1. Email them again and beg. This bothers me because I'm doing them a service, not the other way around.
2. Give up and concentrate on the indie authors, who are much more responsive.

*whine, moan, bitch, complain* LOL

Or, you could say screw it to the ones you HAVE contacted and contact others?

and remember I have 4 more authors to add to the list.

Quick question- about how long should we give before we follow up with second emails about the features? I've been waiting on responses from authors for a month now and haven't heard anything.

Has anyone else had trouble getting the "NY" authors to respond? Out of ten queries I sent out over a week ago, I've only had 3 reply back. Do these people actually want to be promoted?

I guess I'm more confused than grumpy. However, I feel like I'm wasting a LOT of energy on folks who just don't give a rat's patoot.

Hey girl! Yeah, I sent out a couple of emails last week and so far I've only heard from four. Still waiting on six to reply. :-) Working on a schedule in the mean time. If it helps, I've sent them a tweet about my e-mail. Maybe you can do that? or FB?

I've heard back from less than half of the NY authors I contacted. Oh well...their loss is the indie authors' gain!

Okay! Sorry that I'm posting my list of authors now, but the end of my semester was insane, and then the holidays were equally insane. All are unconfirmed, unless otherwise noted.

Two of my NY authors had to drop out for personal reasons, so I have to update my list and find new NY Spotlight authors. The list on here still has them listed, so I don't know if there are any other authors who have had to drop out as well. Am I missing the updated list? I am a bit tired... and stressed... and crazy (ok, that one's not entirely new).

MamaKitty: Great question! I didn't know anyone had dropped out. I hadn't received a reply from a couple authors, but know it's a busy time, so I was laying low. I don't want to pester folks that aren't coming.
