For the past several months Serena Williams has been trying very carefully to promote her book in well-planned TV appearances, through blogs and Twitter. However, yesterday she ruined all her months of hard work in a couple of minutes. Yesterday, before her semi-final match against Kim Clijsters she wrote: “I would like to thank everyone that purchased, “On the Line!” I am on the NYT bestsellers list as number 23! I am honored & very thankful.”
My guess is, that her book sales numbers will be going down. I wonder if people who were planning to buy her book would now change their mind after the “foot fault” incident? Or maybe more people will be intrigued now to buy and read her book? What do you think?
