Pet Peeves of the Author World
By RaeBeth McGee-Buda

You have written a book, put it through the extensive steps of editing and formatting, and send it off to publication. Easy, right! Not so much. Then, you enter the world of publication and this is where it all changes. Today, I will be sharing some of the pet peeves I have within the author world, which is after your book has been released.

I have been a published author for the past year and I’ve noticed several things, which tend to drive me absolutely crazy!! The first is the fact that some authors seem to be competing with other authors. We as authors are not in competition. We are to support one another and help each other out. No one author is better than another is.

The next thing is the massive amounts of free books and giveaways. Yes, these are nice. But when everyone is offering a free book or massive giveaways, readers expect this from all authors. Don’t get me wrong.. It’s awesome to see things given away and it’s fun to have the giveaways. However, when authors do nothing but giveaways in return for reviews or promotion, I think it is a bit over board. Do not get me wrong, I am not talking about offering giveaways to street teams. Those who actively promote the authors deserve something in return.

The last one is where certain people, who help promote authors, take favoritism. They refuse to promote certain authors and only stick to certain ones. When a person does this, their only spamming their friends with the same authors. I personally feel that as both a blogger and an author, it is best to reach out to new authors and help promote them. This gives those on your friend’s list new authors to find and enjoy, and it helps you learn of new authors.

Inclosing, I think the author world need to redefine it. Authors have the power to change it if they come together.



 Author Bio

Best Selling Author, RaeBeth McGee-Buda is resides in a tiny valley at the ridges of the Application Mountains in Fairchance, Pennsylvania, with her husband and daughter, her dog, Cody, and her newest family addition, Romeow her pure white cat.

She has been writing in some form her entire life, but loving young sister, Audra McGee noticed her talent, and gave her the reassurance she needed to start her writing career. After many months of deliberation, RaeBeth decided to trust her sister’s word and expand her short story into what we all know and love as
The Silenced Series.

RaeBeth is a mother to an angel in Heaven...Miss Dakota, whom she honored in
Saying Goodbye without Saying Hello. Her goals for her books are to inspire and give hope. She is a Christian author, who firmly believes in God and incorporates her faith into some of her work.




Here is more on her three published works!




What are others saying about Silenced?



"There are too few books out there about this subject matter. This book makes it easy for the young teenager to read that they are not alone. They are not the only ones out there fighting this affliction. Highly recommended."


I have never had a book draw me in and fill me with that connection.”

I applaud the author's bravery in bringing to light a few things that are so easily swept under the rug. Depression and cutting. There really is not enough information out there and more teens and young adults have these issues than most people know. I hope that this series will help someone having these issues and show them that they can seek help.”

What are others saying about Silenced 2: The Overtaking?



I recommend this to anyone reader who loves Christian suspicion or just wants to read for fun.”

This is an amazing story that hooks you in from the beginning and sends you on an emotional roller coaster. You can relate to these characters on a personal level, which to me makes the book a masterpiece.”

SILENCED 2: The Overtaking is a story of healing, forgiveness, and overcoming those things that seek to pull us down, and most of all it is story of HOPE!”

What are others saying about Saying Goodbye without Saying Hello?

"Saying Goodbye Without Saying Hello is a poignant read that shares the journey of the author her experience of a wonderful pregnancy ending abruptly with an unexpected turn; how her baby becomes an angel. This page-turning true story touched my heart as I learned how Mrs. Buda shares just how fragile life is.”



Rae Beth’s story is heart wrenching and the fact that she shares it with us shows the strength and determination this woman has.” 


I loved this book! She was so detailed in the raw emotions she felt in going through this very tragic event. I would recommend this book be given to parents who are going through losing their baby in this way. She is very detailed with her thoughts and emotions, I think anyone experiencing something like this, or knowing someone who is would benefit from reading this book.”

Thank you so much Raebeth for being on my blog. You have some good peeves in the Author World. Mine with authors as well is the competition. I think authors are suppose to build other authors up and not down. When authors try to compete with other authors to be the best in the genre or the best writer overall it takes away from the joy. Or at least that is what I think. I wish you success in your writing career, and hope you continue writing and giving us all stories to read. 
If any of you have any questions or comments leave them and Raebeth will check them out.
