Crazy Town, Revisited

Some of you may recall that a few months ago an author created a major stir on Goodreads and Twitter because of less-than-stellar reviews she received for her book. Due to all the hoopla, I went to Amazon and got a copy for free via Kindle Unlimited. As I was reading the book, I tweeted various quotes. Then I wrote up my review, and that was that.

This week I received a notice from Twitter about removing the Tweets because the author filed a complaint against me. No big deal, they can be removed. In a blog post, however, she made a serious accusation that is not true and I want to address it.

She accuses me of somehow tampering with her book and claims that is how I was able to post the whole thing on Twitter.


First of all, I in no way tampered with the book file - I don't even know how that would be possible. I was reading the book on my Kindle because I got the it from KINDLE UNLIMITED, and I used this neat feature on my phone where I talk and it types what I am saying - that is how I tweeted various quotes. Secondly, I did not post anywhere even close to the whole book. That would be completely pointless. I posted quotes as I was reading - much like a reviewer uses quotes in their reviews. 

I considered not addressing this at all, but I am not about to have someone straight-up lying about something I did not do. You may draw your own conclusions about who the author is but please keep it to yourselves. I do not wish to give this any further attention beyond this post and will delete any comments that name her or the book.

Thank you,


  1. When will her nonsense threats stop???

    1. Girrrrrrrrrrl, who knows?! I am just happy to have the truth out there and alive on the Internet, even if no one but us sees it. I know how I got the book (KU) and I know how I tweeted quotes from it (using this fancy fingers on my hands). Ain't nobody got time for nonsense.

  2. I am sorry that you are having to deal with this!
