And I thought I could tick off an author. I ain't seen nuttin' yet.

Start here. Then go here. Good God. Now for the offending blog post here. And her Amazon review here that I believe is outside the TOS. Look at how many times she's taken it down and reposted it to remove comments here.

It's crazy in the comments on the author's blog. I swear she's talking with herself.

Ok I just lost a whole hour reading all the posts dealing with this.  I kept seeing this book pop up the last month or so and actually thought about reading it because I liked the cover so much.  Forget that and I personally thank the Gods that as a blogger I have never been zeroed in on by a deranged author for a less than favorable review.  Poor Wendy!

All the days of our lives....

This Vanity author has reposted her Amazon review several times since 5/28. I wasn't watching it until today, but twice since she's received a comment (rather innocuous comment I might add), the review is taken down and reposted to removed the comment. You can see the tally of deleted reviews here.
