A sock puppet, in the modern literary world, is an author who adopts a fake persona with which to write glowing testimonials about their books on Amazon and other book review sites. Worse still, they write derogatory reviews of their main competition’s works and give them one star ratings! (This is an adult author thing. We children’s authors are far too nice to do such things!)
However, during my fabulous week at the Hull, Big Malarkey Festival, I made a Dragon, Sock Puppet and it keeps talking to me from it’s little lair in a corner of my studio.
“Tell’em!” it whispers.”Tell’em about your dragon trilogy books!”
I always do as I’m told, so here we are – I’m telling you about my dragon books and giving you links to Amazon below. Not blatant marketing at all, just making a Sock Puppet happy!
