Authors Behaving Like Knobheads... Part Two Million and One...
Lucinda Campbell whoever you are, you’re a f*cktard.
"Hmmm? Sounds to me like someone can dish out the criticism, but she can't take it. And don't worry. You'll never get another one of my books. I only sent it to you because everyone else in my writer's group was doing it. I guess if they all jumped off of a bridge, I'd go too...Oh, and BTW, how did you know that "Lucinda" was "L.K. Campbell"? Very interesting!!!"
This was to Mrs Giggles, who replies with:
"Lucinda, please stop. You're embarrassing yourself. Your email address shows up as "email@example.com" so I don't think it's rocket science to make that connection."
Talk about fuckwittery of the highest order.
This comment here by Jax (yet another member of The Romance Divas) was the one that nearly made me piss myself laughing:
"It's one thing to attack me, but another thing to attack my site. I think you're just intimidated that our reviews are better and more accurate. In fact, we have a rather huge staff and we have editors to make sure there are inconsistencies in data.
If we make an error, we're quick to adjust it. We're also quoted in many NY published romances, but I don't see your reviews in any books. We don't need to bash to get our point across. I'm a reviewer and I can guarantee that I check my facts. I'm not here to complain, but since you took it that way, that's your problem."
Lord, God, save me from narcissistic arseholes who think their shit don’t smell.
Of course authors will quote them, they are Harriet Klausner-type reviewers who think that every book written is the best thing since sliced bread. They’re that particularly funky breed of reviewer, who have never read a bad book. Evah.
Mrs G didn’t actually attack them, or anybody else. They kinda came out of the woodwork, in that scary Rabid Fangirly way that creeps me out.
That Lucinda chick kept harping on about how cowardly Mrs G was and that she should out herself. WTF? Where the fuck has she been? Outer effing Mongolia?
I tell you, their fuckwittery was awe-inspiring.
Mrs G had this to say in response to Jax’s comment:
"Where did all that "you're just jealous!" thing come from? Give me a break. If I care about being quoted by authors, I'd be doing reviews from Romantic Times."
Nice one-liner dude.
Kristen, also another member of the Divas weighs in with her particular brand of fucktardiness:
"Oh honey, that's the best decision you've ever made. You wouldn't fit in at Romance Divas. See, RD is one of the most supportive sites online. We don't tear each other down or pick each other to pieces just for a good bit of snark. You'd be bored silly. Or shunned completely. You know, something like that. Ciao, darling!"
Jesus, I tell ya, if it was raining brains, some of these amoebas wouldn’t even get wet.
(Sorry Mrs G, but the devil on my shoulder made me do it. *g*)
Right, I’m off to bed, it’s been a loooong day.
