Spam sucks...but book releases, cover reveals and a winner does not!

Let me count the ways that I hate spam! I thought I was doing a pretty good job of filtering it out, but NOOOOO, I was mistaken. Does anyone have any tips on how I can get rid of the crap? That would be ever so great:)


In other news...and this is good stuff, one of my writer friends has had a book release and another had her cover reveal so I just wanted to give them a quick shout out!

Brenda Drake's birthday is today...so a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! For a present she is revealing the cover of her book, LIBRARY JUMPERS! Check it out...And go visit her blog and tell her how awesome it is if you get a chance:) 



Yesterday was a big day for Kelley Lynn! Her debut novel, FRACTION OF STONE was released. Woot woot!!!! Check it out and stop by her blog to give her a big wuzz up!



And finally we have a winner for the copy of The Carnelian Legacy!!! Congrats S. T. Lakata!!! I just sent you an email:)

I can't wait for Brenda's book. I'm salivating over that cover. Her MC must be a kick** kind of girl.
And congrats to Kelley and Fraction of Stone releasing!

I have no great spam solutions. I use gmail (minimizes spam) and have a "junk account" that I use if I'm buying something or have to sign up for something and I don't want those emails bogging down my "real" account.

Kelley Lynn said...

I stopped getting spam completely when I stopped taking unregistered comments.

Congrats to the new authors. Very exciting.

Thank you for the shout out, Deana! And congrats to Kelley! As far as spam goes, I had to block anonymous user to get rid of mine. o.O

Let me know if you find any helpful Spam suggustions! Super irked b/c wordpress started automatically running ads at the end of my blogs this past week . . . unless I start paying. Ugh! I just don't have any disposable income left:-( But yay for book birthdays, and a post from you! Am seriously missing me some Parenthood!! <3

The spam seems to have ratcheted up on Blogger. I went back in and made it so any post over 7 days old has to be moderated, that's at least keeping body parts from being all over my comments section. I still have to go back in and mark them as spam. If it gets really bad, I may switch it to 1 or 2 days.

And congrats to Kelley and Brenda!

Yay! So excited for new books!! And I'm doing the same thing Jaye is for Spam ... every comment on posts over 7 days old I've set to require moderation. If the problem persists, I might make it fewer days, or like Brenda, go no "anonymous" comments allowed
