2014 Flashback #HaleNo

Screenshot of an author's take on the now-with-publishing-deal-to-crow-about-the-stalking writer who stalked a reviewer in real life at home and at work.  (not naming to avoid promoting or improving search engine standings but shows in screenshot).

 

 

 


As if, somehow, stalking is not doing harm. As if confronting someone could never lead to harm. As if the victim deciding to retreat from reviewing is not harm.

Silencing harms. Stalking harms. Being made afraid is harm. Victim did not set out to make writer's life miserable -- as if that excuses stalking; victim reviewed writer's book.

Publisher's response about Stalker's book..

...in effect that we should all read it before judging.

 

(Source: http://www.bustle.com/p/author-kathleen-hale-admitted-to-stalking-a-goodreads-user-now-she-has-a-book-deal-about-it-15649240 , last paragraph)

 

Huh? WTF? Are they offering refunds if after reading it we still think the stalker detailing their crime in this book is a stalker?

 

What a load of marketing to get people to buy the book.

 

Next paycheck I'm making another donation of the book's price to http://victimsofcrime.org/about-us/support-our-work  -- mentioning the #HaleNo hashtag and in honor of Blythe.

 

I'm only boycotting this book.  I refuse to blame all of publisher Grove's authors for this stalker crap.

I made this tweet today.

 

I almost never use Twitter other than during Deweys 24 Hour Readathon.  But #HaleNo is worth a look.

*sigh* #HALENO
Kathleen Hale Is a Crazy Stalker - Kathleen Hale

I don't have the words.

 

Author related to a big five publisher now publishing the tale of successfully stalking a goodreads reviewer.  Well defended by the publisher in previous instances and previous bland, badly written tomes I disliked even before all the drama.  No way I'd feel any different about this one and no way do I want to add to her profit.  $23 for hardcover sounds like trying to grab the money quickly in case any legal troubles or blowback happen.

 

If unfamiliar with the criminal history -- 

 

Yes, I know. Possible Streisand effect and increased visibility by posting about this.  But, past experience says KH will blow up around the blogosphere anyway.  She's big on friction marketing plus usually has an extraordinary amount of marketing from the publisher..
