Posted in: Authors behaving like twits, reviews
Oh look, another author who can’t take criticism.
The difference is, this author decided to take a potshot at the reviewer’s weight.
Here’s the author’s rant in its entirety, crossing a line that no man should ever cross:
Seriously….you’re just going after me on Twitter and Good Reads now after savaging me on DarkScribe?
what is your problem with me?
the typos are LONG gone and the book has all been re-edited. That verison hasn’t been available for almost a year. I sent you that copy a year ago…you JUST got to it.
enough with the typo thing.
and can you not see that your hyper interest in woman studies and equality are tainting your ability to review a book with an even hand?
Jeesh…if you hate my characters because some are sexist or bigots…what kind of books DO you like?
and for every character you mention that is a “weak woman” or ” idiot cop” there are others to balance them out…yet you don’t even mention them.
You are the first person who has absolutely hated my book. That’s fine. If i wrote a horror novel that EVERYONE liked…i’m doing something wrong.
it’s just that your hate is coming from the wrong places.
anyway…you’ve blasted me enough. Shut up and movo on.
I can’t help but wonder if you’re pissed because the character “Janice” in my book…the one you posted an excerpt about:
“…She needed a man. Hell, maybe if she bothered to drop down below 220 lbs she might find one. That, and she’d have to not talk. Basically she’d have to become an anorexic mute and then she could possibly attract the attention of a blind man with no sense of smell.”
…Hits a little too close to home. Don’t take that out on me.
Others on good reads like my book, even with the old typos (see Monster Librarian member on here- they put Under on thier best of 2009 list…up with many published authors.)
Your opinion is fine….but don’t pretend your hate comes purely from my book….your self loathing is creeping in far more than any typos.
but hey…that’s just my opinion.
how about we both just forget about each other, okay?
Wow, he actually went there.
The self-pubbed author was a chap called Brad Quinn. Somebody needs to tell him that implying that the reviewer reacted negatively to his book because she was a fat cow who couldn’t get a man, is so not the best way to win friends and influence people.
