Not All Authors Self-Promote

I just finished KJ Parker’s The Hammer. It’s an excellent book, like all of the six or seven Parker novel’s I’ve read: lucid, smart and coldly human. Parker seems to be doing well — a book a year, roughly, all selling well if not “best,” with an enthusiastic fan base and great reviews.

And here’s the thing: Parker does no promotion whatsoever. No social networking — no twitter, no facebook, no G+, no nothing. There’s a webpage, with effectively zero content. This is Parker’s bio, in full:

K.J. Parker is a pseudonym.

Good for him! Or her.

I wish I could do my self-promotion that way.
