Then they try to convince you to read their books. It seems that the self published author’s main sales strategy is;

Spam them.

Hope they’ll a) buy your book and b) love your book.

Hence the direct messages out of the blue that went;

 I replied to both, as soon as I see a video of the bleach drinking I’ll be checking out the book.
