People will say anything when they want something from you.
When people are promoting books, many will of course be very nice to people who they want to promote their books, give them a reference.
This happened recently. Gushing niceness, compliments and then when they have what they want, and don’t need you anymore….very little.
And the little you asked them if they could do for you …. forgotten, ignored, doesn’t materialise.
It’s okay, I learned my lesson.
I’m still learning lessons.
Humanity never fails to disappoint.
