If you are such a connoisseur of literature and can’t find anything good to say about the books written by others than why don’t you get off your self-righteous, high horse and write your own damn novel? Yeah I know, that would take an ounce of courage…Right?...

—found in goodreads public posts (same bunch of ridiculousness from author I'm not wanting to advertise)

Internet Counterattack

Some interesting buzzwords with links.

"…who will ever know? Consumers never tell each other things of this nature, right?


WRONG! If it gets on the Internet, double wrong…"

Hmm...bottom section sounds like restaurant owners respond like BBA to online reviews

If you scroll down this coverage of tv show "Kitchen Nightmares" to the Amy's Baking Company owners who rated their very own section -- much reminds me of the stereotypical badly behaving authors (well, personally, I have not encountered an author who claimed God would smite me for not recognizing their god-given talents although I have seen screenshots of authors threatening to sic religious organizations on a reviewer unless review removed or changed to a 5-star rant).

Really Joe Gazzam?? Bully much? (Sadly, how many reviewers back off from the threats and the drama....)

Here is the review in question 


And here is the  Amazon review: http://www.amazon.com/review/RT2T9UUS...;
(If you go on Amazon.co.uk, you'll see that it's a Verified Purchase.)


So after he posted this (I live in the UK so I'm 5 hours ahead of US time) and then when I woke up, I saw that I had a new message on Goodreads from Joe himself. This is what he sent me:


he is also slamming the guy on twitter

. Here's the conversation he started:



Part of my message from Gavin:

So he says it's cyber-bullying first because I put up a negative review, which is so not fair, I downloaded the book and didn't like it. Am I not allowed to post my thoughts? Then he calls me creepy? Then he lies to the person he is talking to about "ignoring it and not starting a war" when at the same time he posted that tweet he sent me the message on Goodreads threatening a lawsuit. And then calls me a nut job! On a separate tweet he tells his followers to flag 1-star reviews as abuse and "super religious". Like seriously, is he being serious?
