I was convinced it was a joke of some sort, no?

I don't think so. And what's particularly amusing about it is that it's now *all over the internet*, so what the petulant author presumably thought was a safe vent on a little-read blog has quite probably destroyed her entire career - and deservedly so if her attitude and her writing are anything to go by.

For me that's the sad part, deserved or not. Oh internet...

...to say nothing of her spelling and grammar.

Huh. Crazy.

Fandom Wank will have to clean their claws on this one. They love that shit.

It's a slow motion car wreck, that's what it is...

Why be sad about it? She brought this on herself with her thin skin and boorish attitude. Face it, Lady. Not everyone's going to like your work, and when you tell an audience to fuck off, then that's all she wrote.

There is a positive review of it on Amazon:

When I first approached The Greek Seaman I'll admit I was a bit apprehensive, but soon I was lapping it up! In fact I loved it so much that I polished it off in an evening. Now my mission is to get all my friends to share my taste for The Greek Seaman. I think it's worth paying for!

That's pretty funny. Was this posted after the blog hubbub?

That chick is awesome! I can't believe her balls in that thread. I bet she's great in bed.

The book sounds exactly like the shit in lit that I have not liked over the past 20 years... story wise that is. The grammer errors aren't a big deal to me, if they can seem intentional but judging from her posts I assume it's not intentional. It also seems like she is actually angry and not just having fun with her posts. Such a shame. An author trolling a review of their self-published book could be really entertaining. Unfortunately she is not entertaining, and she is not trolling.

I still think she'd be good in bed though, with all that fire and passion. Just don't critisize her mid orgasm. But that goes for all women (people even).

HAHA. That was hilarious. She was pretty tenacious I've give her that.

I don't think it's real. It looks like one of the better publicity stunts I've seen in a long time. The comment thread reminds me a ton of the Bonsai kitten internet hoax years ago.

I just can't reconcile how a writer instantly attacks one of her readers. And then how a WRITER can only bring herself to write fuck you on several occasions instead of writing about her viewpoint. No way, doesn't add up. Great publicity stunt.

No, not great; unless your definition of great also includes "TO BACKFIRE HORRIBLY."

i don't think there is such thing as bad publicity tho. I mean everyone is talking about her and this blog.

Both have benefited tremendously. obviously, she shouldn't write books anymore but with this type of publicity, she could leverage it by doing other stuff. She should sell out and try to get on the next celebrity apprentice or whatever.
