Brickbats and bouquets

My thanks to the lovely and highly talented Mari Evers for finding a few more typos in Every Move You Make, and for making me laugh with her funny comments on the text – all this while recovering from eye surgery!

(If you missed the announcement about this new novella – the sequel to Unnatural Selection – then you’ll find more information, including a 50% off voucher, here.)

And brickbats to the loathsome James Austen for continuing to harrass, abuse and threaten a critical reviewer of his book. [ETA: Screen cap here] Way to show your arse, Mr Austen. Apparently he’s getting a lot of support for his nonsense on his whiny GoodReads blog (or so he says) from other authors. Since he’s deleting comments critical of him, there’s no way of telling who has spoken up against him. You might want to note who those idiot supporters are, because any author who supports the abuse of reviewers is not someone you should waste your money on.

    God, he’s a pretentious and whiny little shit, isn’t he? The combination is lethal. How does one get that obtuse? There has to be a course one can take to achieve that degree of proficiency at it.

    • He’s not obtuse. He’s not even unusual. He’s not even the *worst*.

      In fact, he is utterly banal in his mediocrity :)

        The whining is at such a high pitch I imagine dogs perk up in his neighborhood every time he turns on his computer.

        Come to think of it, I bet that’s a huge problem in Louise’s hood as well, too.

        He’s not even a tiny bit right. There’s no fragment of right there. Usually you can find a tiny piece of it in every argument. But his whining is grandiose and more imaginative than anything else about him.
