Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer ‘Nathan Smith:
“How consciously do readers ‘vote with their dollar’? By which I mean I try very hard to purchase and pre-order LGBTIQA and AoC authors, #ownvoices, etc.?”
I’m gonna expand Nathan’s topic scope a bit. I’d also like to ask, do you withhold your purchases from authors who you think have acted badly? Someone notoriously anti gay, for instance? Someone who has plagiarized in the past? Someone who has acted badly at cons? Or is the quality of the writing the most important thing?
No name calling or calling out here please – we’re speaking in general terms only.
