Elizabeth, this has really stumped me! Last night, somewhere on the internet I saw this book. and thought it looked interesting. When I saw this post, I thought okay, here it is! lol Please, someone tell us the whole title! I can't remember where I saw this. Goodreads doesn't help with the name of the author. Who the heck is R. Malone?

Thanks Ray, for the link.  Inquiring minds want to know why this author's books are not on PBS????????????

Apparently PBS and Goodreads pull information from different data bases.  Not sure how books get into Goodreads, and unclear as to the accuracy.  If a book is available on Amazon it's usually showing in PBS, or can be pulled into the system with the proper incentive.

Robin - I applaud your efforts at writing and publishing 4 novels must feel great!

But joining PBS for the sole purpose of reaming out someone who gave a bad review of one of your books and then posting a bunch of self- promotion really doesn't encourage me to want to read your stuff.

Hello! No, trust me, it was not a bad review. I can definitely understand that people will not always like my books, lol. She was stating that the company I was published through publishes crappy books, basically. And she called me a "self-publisher", which I am not. She has not read ANY of my books. She merely stated that one book through the same publisher was the "worst book she'd ever seen", but, no, not MY own book. It wasn't  a review, she wrote it not knowing a thing about my books. She based my work on someone else's entirely; highly unfair and inappropriate. No, if you don't wish to purchase my books, that's perfectly fine.

KAYE L.   Hello there! Thank you sooo much for your wonderful post; how nice of you! Yes, the other post was just snarky and mean-spirited, and as I clarified above, it was not a review of any of my books, I promise. Thanks again for your wonderful words of encouragement!! :)

MELANIE D.  Thank you so much for applauding my efforts at writing almost 4 books. I understand your next statement also; but I'd never diss anyone who wrote me an actual, true review of one of my books. Like I said, I know that not everyone would like what I write, or would like all (or any) of my books. Sorry for that misunderstanding.


R. Malone

So  Chasity G.  

who just joined in Sept, and has only 2 posts, both in this thread telling us about a great book and has all sorts of quotes and info about a book that no one else knows about and isn't in the PBS system comes and tells us an upcoming book sounds HAWT. ( and by the way her account is now closed)

then

who also joined in Sept, also only has 3 posts, all in this thread, and whose account is now closed as well comes on and says she read the first chapter and it was great
 
then Ray A. (AngelaRayA84)
who also joined in Sept, also only has 3 posts, all in this thread and whose account is private, comes along with the authors website.

 

Then Robin, the author, hears about somebody dissing her publisher on a thread in a forum that doesn't get a ton of traffic, comes and joins PBS to tell us how we shouldn't judge her publisher by others. 

 

Hmmm.... lots of coincidences.

 

 

I would be more inclined to read an author who joined and said - Hey I just found PBS and the paranormal forum, and I have written a couple of books I think might interest you bunch.  Here is a link to chapter one.  It is a self publ which is why it isn't in the PBS system, but the quality is great and I am really pleased with them....   if anyone wants more info about getting them contact me.

Jennifer -- I am sorry you edited out your opinion.  Never let someone pressure you into not stating what you believe.  I value the opinions of the regulars on this board -- and at over 900 posts and almost a year here, I value yours. 

 

I pm'd Richard about the coincidences of this thread.  Too many for me to swallow personally.  I may be wrong.  Maybe R. Malones fan club all decided to join all on the same day. 

 

Also -- i checked out the reviews on Goodreads and 18 of the 20 who reviewed or rated the chapter joined in Sept 2009 as well - and most do not have any books added to their shelves.

Sorry Robin, I can tell you I won't be reading your book based on your attitude expressed here and the fact that you joined PBS solely to scold Jennifer. Jennifer did NOT diss your book. Her opinion of the publishing house had nothing to do with your book. I really have no idea why you took it so personally.
