Do you remember this daft bird? Yeah, the one who A, couldn’t actually string two coherent sentences together, and B, couldn’t take criticism worth a damn, even though she asked for the critique in the first place.

Well, she’s threatening to sue me. Hey, it has to happen at least once a month, right? Anyway, apparently somebody released her from her straitjacket long enough for her to find a keyboard, and threaten me with legal action.

Okay, so now i am the butt of your joke. I take it then karen you’re another one who has not read my book yet? Question. Why is it you have chosen to be foul mouth about me in public? Can’t you do this in private like it was later stated in one the critiques comments had suggested. I will say this about your “so Called Mrs. Giggles” comments.

So I guess she’d prefer me to be ‘foulmouth about her’  in private? *g*

I think you ought to grow up and stop acting like a child, if you carry on like this there will be a law suit against you. I am one who does take critisim very well but having a person like yourself publicly trying to ridicule me is another thing entirely. Be sure to NOTE THIS YOU WILL BE HEARING FROM MY LAWYER IF YOU GO ANY FURTHER WITH THIS NONE SENSE.

I wonder how old she is? I’d be surprised if she was over ten years old. She doesn’t seem very self-aware does she?  Hey, at least she spelt ‘lawyer’ correctly, right? That’s impressive, surely?

Anyway, she’s also quite keen to sue Capo, from C’um Hither Global:

Capo Have you had permission from Myself (Lisa Charlton) to any of the work i have done? Answer is that NO you haven’t. I am suing you for copy right theft.

Regards

Lisa Charlton

Say it with me folks, What. A. Fucktard.

    Ooh, goodie, I’m the first one! What. A. Fucktard.

    Unlike most of these peeps, I actually have a lawyer. I told him about a couple of these threats over lunch. Cracked him right up.

  • I suppose this would be a fine example of how NOT to be if you ever wish to be taken seriously as a novelist. :)

    As we all know, everyone needs to start somewhere and learning curves are much steeper for some. Regardless, with hard work, determination and an eye to accepting criticism in the spirit it was intended – as an opportunity to learn and grow – even those with the Mt. Everest of learning curves can improve and have an solid shot of making it in the industry.

    Unfortunately for Ms. Charlton her learning curve will require crawling out of Valles Marineris with both feet firmly lodged in her mouth.

  • What made me smile when I saw her comment to Capo last night was she is threatening to sue over her blurb. Something that is available to the public anyway.

  • I am absolutely stunned by Ms. Charlton’s ignorance of this business. I’m not sure calling her names will do anything except entice her into making a bigger fool of herself.

    Then again, I would love to be a fly on her lawyer’s wall if or when she tries to start these lawsuits. I can see Ms. Charlton being laughed out of the office.

    So sad. So very sad.

    Don’t think calling names does much good either. However, I do suggest everybody have their internet lawyer handy. Mine is waiting in the wings.

  • Yeah. Um…

    I’ve always been a big advocate of authors educating themselves about the law. (though I’m not sure I’d call this woman an author) Every author who is serious about their career needs a working knowledge of copyright and defamation, particularly when one plans to go around dishing out threats of legal action.

    I’m not suggesting every author enroll in law school (I wouldn’t wish this hell on anyone, believe me) but you have to know your craft, your industry, and your business, and this is part of it.

    Same person?

    Someone said she lives in England, also. Does anyone know the laws there on this?

    Karen, have you thought about putting together an anti-promo blurb for your blog? You could get some excellent quotes together from emails like this! I also think you have enough threatened “law suits” on your hands that it would now be helpful if you added a sidebar link to “Authors who want to sue me”, like the author’s behaving badly link.

  • I may be wrong (yeah, the shock, I know), but perhaps this person’s entire goal is to be the center of attention, and not to actually write something worth reading.

    I mean, coming back a month after the fact just to throw around meaningless legal threats and complain about the mean blogger? Eerily similar to a certain plagiarist erm con artist victim erm… being who spammed Dear Author for a while.

    I’m going to go off track here. What exactly does ‘spammed’ Dear Author mean? She wasn’t really Lanaia (or whatever)? She just kept yammering even after people said ‘go away’? She was Lanaia and she couldn’t let it go and had to keep beating the same dead horse? All of the above?

    I thought spam was just advertising/junk e-mails.

    I may have to sue you too…you know for having a site that makes me feel like an uninformed twit…

    There’s gotta be a law

  • My mind boggles at the depth of some people’s ignorance. It just does. Beyond that, my reaction is inexpressible, simply because words elude me.

  • I was thinking the same thing about that lawsuit list. LOL, poor Karen. You really need a take a number machine. Or maybe a link to a legal page on why people cannot sue you for quoting them.

    LOL!

    This should be on a tee-shirt.

    Or perhaps she saw the hits to her book page/site/blog/whatever drop and decided to stir up some new traffic by popping in and doing something stupid again to put herself back in the spotlight.

    You never know.

    Negative press is often better than none at all.

  • Sam, sorry about that.

    A few weeks–more than a month, if memory serves–after that thread at D.A. someone identifying herself as LL started posting basically the same comment to various unrelated threads, threatening Jane and D.A. with lawyers and ‘proof’ and other meaningless nonsense. (Most if not all of those comments were deleted, I believe.)

    That is what I meant by “spammed Dear Author.”

    I figure “spam” is internet shorthand for stuff you’d really rather not read.

    If the person had a “personal” issue with you then they should keep it between you two instead of going on blogland posting nonsense.

    You can’t sue someone for their opinion; if that’s the case, it’ll be a whole lot of lawsuits going on keeping attorneys even happier than they are now…lol

    Spamming a board is posting the same thing (or almost same thing) over and over again. Doesn’t have enough engagement to be trolling which is meant to get arise out of someone.
