While many writers and other public figures have thrived on negative publicity, not all of them are equipped to handle it. On their October 25 episode of the Self Publishing Podcast; hosts Johnny B. Truant, Sean Platt, and David Wright, and guest Tucker Max, discuss how haters can propel some authors to fame while driving others away.
When I first started writing, I got virtually no attention from the mainstream media, said Max, author of the popular yet polarizing book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. I had to find ways to manufacture attention.
To this end, Max published a fabricated letter that came off as demeaning towards women and led to about two hundred people protesting during a speech he gave at Ohio State University.
