feygan: (Batgirl)

So a writer wrote a slam book about a reviewer and the Internet blew up all over Andrea Smith and her multiple (MULTIPLE! Like 12-dozen) identities -- pen names, sock puppet accounts, Twitter and Facebook identities, etc.

The low down: A reviewer named Baba wrote this review => <= after being shocked (and horrified) to find that Andrea Smith (and I think her co-author Eva Lenoir is her too) wrote a whole book that turned her into a man that ends up in an mm relationship with an author.


Yeah, that's what I said. But here's a copy of the screen cap taken before the blurb changed:

If you can't see the image, here's the blurb transcript: "Two dominant males, two worthy adversaries, in a business that takes no prisoners, will soon learn that fate refuses to be ignored...

My name is Babu, and I'm a reviewer--no scratch that, I'm a living god in the review world. I have my own column and I have no filter, and for that, my flock of humble followers are forever grateful. I have zero tolerance for the weak-minded attention seekers, nor do I have respect for the self-proclaimed geniuses of the Indie world. My advice to all Indie authors is to never break the cardinal rule in this business. Ever.

My name is L. Blackburn and I'm an Indie author. My genius was loved and worshiped throughout the literary world, until one self-righteous reviewer tried to obliterate my career. It seems I broke some fucking "cardinal rule," and now I'm paying the price for it. But I don't plan on going down without a fight.

After all, when a predator goes after your cub, it's time to go for the throat--and maybe more... much more.

Please note: This book is multi-genre; it is a parody of sorts, and not intended in any way to demean or degrade either reviewers or authors--because we love them both! It is M/M, sexually charged, and the characters are endearing and humorous--there is a sprinkle of angst as well!

Sexual content. M/M - Graphic Sexual Situations

Call me kooky, but this whole situation seems ridiculous, weird, and way beyond the pale.
