Cyber Bullies

The reason I have posted this article in its entirety is to once again show that the trolls are out there. They come on many shapes and sizes male and female. For whatever reason they love to find authors and tear them down. It is not about an objective book review, it is about how to destroy another person. Even some “authors” have been known to do this as well. I find it very sad that those very trolls who spend their lives spewing things could better spend their lives living their own dream and not trying to destroy someone else’s. They also expect authors to sit idly by and not rebut their review, to remain passive and just “get over it.”

That is what bullies do. One can give an honest review as to why they did not care of a particular book- it doesn’t mean that someone else won’t. They do not have to make it personal nor do they have to go on and on and on in a rant. There is a difference in a professional review and an unprofessional review. The professional review simply states, I read the book- I did or did not care for it- The unprofessional review has to attack the author, the characters and the story line. It becomes character assassination of the author.

Reading with an open mind is not something the cyber bullies do. They feel it makes them look bigger than life to “bring down” someone else. What are they missing in their life? What do they lack that they feel they must drag others into their abyss?
Many if not all of these cyber bullies don’t even read the book. They read the synopsis and go from there. Seriously – a synopsis is just that a small window to let someone know if the book my be to their liking. It is not justification for a smear campaign.

As authors we have worked hard and long to make our dreams real. We have walked many miles, written many pages and taken many hits to get where we are. We will not longer sit back and be attacked by trolls. Yes, that is what they are. In their minds they are “getting one up” on authors who have been a success. If they have a right to which they do to spout their evil, their hate and their venom, we also have that same right to defend our craft. Sadly they do not wear that shoe well.
Instead of wasting their time tearing down they would be better served by making their own dreams real. Someone told me that they “understood my feelings were hurt”- That could not be farther from the truth. My feelings are not part of this – it has nothing to do with feelings. It has to do with the fact that I will now long tolerate bullying. I will no longer sit back while someone else tries to destroy my craft or another author’s craft. Bullies are really cowards who hide behind aliases and false statements because that is all they have to call their own. This is sad so very sad. I will continue to rebut the bullies of this world. If that shoe does not fit then maybe they should stop wearing it.

Anne Rice Examiner

April 28, 2014
Anne Rice, iconic author of “The Vampire Chronicles”, “The Lives of the Mayfair Witches” and “The Wolf Gift Chronicles” is well known for her strong opinions on everything from the Catholic Church, to women’s rights to the state of the publishing business today.

On a daily basis, the over one million followers of her widely popular Facebook page have read her posts and offered their own opinions on these and a variety of other subjects.

As of late, one of her most passionate topics has been the proliferation of the online reviewer and how everyday people can influence readers and writers with both their positive and negative reviews.

These reviews by ordinary individuals can be a blessing or curse to the fledgling independent author trying to make a name for themselves as a writer. It is a phenomenon of the social-media age in which we live and one that shows no sign of slowing down.

As a great proponent of the indie-author, Mrs. Rice, whose new novel “Prince Lestat” is scheduled for publication on October 28th, 2014, has graciously agreed to answer some questions on this subject as well as, the pressure a writer feels from their fans and criticism of a writer’s motives.

As always, her answers are honest, thought provoking and more than worthy of further discussion.

Here is Anne Rice:

1 – Why do you believe authors are often criticized for their motives when writing a particular book more than other creative people (i.e. she only did it for the money, she was contractually obligated, etc.)?

Yes, I do think authors are the target of some very specific criticisms that other creative artists do not receive. And it’s puzzled me for years. When readers become disenchanted with an author, when they find a new book unsatisfactory, some have a tendency to slam the author saying “he wrote it for the money,” or “he wrote it to fulfill a contract” or even “he’s insulted his fans and shows he doesn’t care.” And no, you never really hear this kind of criticism thrown at opera singers, actors, directors, painters and the like. I cannot say why this happens. Perhaps it is because we are the most accessible of all creative artists, and many readers have discovered this. A stinging and hateful criticism of Barbra Streisand may never be read by her; but many authors do read their reviews, and reviewers know this and know that they can draw blood with these sorts of insults. Another reason however has to do with something deeper: a kind of suspicion that surrounds the idea of the writer, a suspicion that does not surround creative people in highly institutionalized art forms. Actors, directors, opera singers, dancers — all these people work in collaborative art forms with hierarchies of people in control and their work comes before the public in highly structured venues — plays, movies, etc. Even painters are presented through famous museums and galleries. —- But we writers do it all on our own; we create our books individually and they come to the public free of any sort of institutional framework. True, we have publishers, but it’s not the same as an actor appearing in a movie that involves producers, directors, musicians, and studio money and PR people. We are pretty much the lone creators and presenters of our books. —– So there is a kind of suspicion of us, and sometimes even a resentment, and kind of “what makes you think you’re good enough to be a writer?” mentality that can stalk us right through our careers. In other words, we do what we do privately and somewhat mysteriously, and when it doesn’t suit, doesn’t entertain, we can be slammed for being corrupt from the core. —– That’s about as well as I can explain it right now. It’s a question I’ve been pondering all my life. Why do we get so much hostility from the disappointed reader? Why do we get so many insults? In time perhaps I can figure it out a little more.

2 – Do you believe writers are influenced to some extent by the demands of their readers and that it’s possible, for some, to produce upon demand when pressured? Can that type of situation produce a good book?

Yes. I think all authors are influenced by the demands of their readers. The big question is how to respond to those demands and what to do when you receive wildly conflicting demands and there is absolutely no consensus amongst your readers as to what they actually want or don’t want. The author has to be sensitive to what he or she can learn from the readers, but the author has to dig down deep in the heart and come up with the book the author believes to be the best response to everything he or she has learned —- In other words, no matter what one group of readers might say, or how much another group might disagree, the writer has to write the best book he or she can write. And that is really what ALL the fans want: that you do your best. Readers can tell you wildly conflicting things. I remember once a journalist telling me that “the internet had declared ‘Queen of the Damned’ a failure.” Was I to believe that? Was I supposed to respond to it? The book was No.1 at the time on the New York Times list. It was receiving some of the best reviews I’d ever received. Readers at the signings seemed to love it. Another time a young woman called my home and told me “We don’t like ‘Queen of the Damned.’ We don’t like all those other characters. We want Louis and Lestat.” Was I supposed to cater to that demand? — Was I to take these comments as truly reflective of the success or failure of “Queen of the Damned?” You listen to your readers, you care about them, you don’t want to disappoint them, but you must again and again return to your own deepest values, obsessions and concerns and produce the book that you think is the best. It’s not easy. If you look on Amazon, you’ll see there is no consensus whatsoever among our readers as to which is my best book; every single book I’ve written has been called a bad book, a failure, and sometimes even “the worst book ever published.” You take note. You reflect. Then you go back to what drives you to write and you steer a course that feels right for you.

3 – With an ongoing debate about the power of negative reviews and the very real possibility of black-listing authors for defending themselves, do you think there is anything an indie author can do to defend themselves?

Indie authors today need to be aware of what they’re facing. The internet has changed reviewing. A person ten years ago might have said, “I enjoyed the book, but not all that much. I don’t know why. But I’ll try the author again if he writes another. “Today that person goes on line and says, “I am giving this book one star because I feel plotting and characterization was poor, and I did not like the characters, I felt the heroine was a ‘Mary Sue’ and I can’t stand that kind of character, and there was too much description, and I found a typo on page 263 etc.” Does this help the author? Probably not at all. Does it help other customers? Very likely no, because for all its “details,” it’s entirely subjective and not particularly expressive of why the reader didn’t have a good time with the book. So indie authors have to keep a cool head with the new internet hobbyist criticism. Just realize that the book didn’t do what you wanted it to do for that reader, and move on. As for the roving gangs of gangster bullies on Amazon and Goodreads, they will remain a fact of life for indie authors until websites begin to clean out these people. Ignore them. That is really all you can do. On Amazon you can report attacks that are vitriolic and obviously involve gang related negative voting, but the management does not regularly apply its guidelines. Again, move on. Keep writing, keep working. Learn what you can and ignore the rest. Be assured there are people working on solving the gangster bully problem and maybe someday they will be successful. There has never been any justice in the world of book reviewing. And it has never been clear whether book reviewing benefits anyone but the reviewer. Word of mouth is what sells books and always has, lots of readers ignore reviews and wisely so, and the author’s greatest strength is his or her ability to keep writing, keep working, keep getting the work out there.

4- You have often mentioned that a substantive review (pro or con) can be immensely helpful to any author. In what way?

First off, let’s remind ourselves: reviews aren’t written for authors. They’re written for other readers or book customers. That being said, an author can certainly learn from a substantive review. I’ve been surprised often by substantive reviews, to discover how much some aspects of a book mattered to readers, aspects that I didn’t think too much about when writing. After all, when you’re writing, you’re thinking of everything! You have to think of everything. And the substantive review can confirm that you succeeded in many ways, but also surprise you with an enthusiastic riff on something you might have thought was insignificant. Readers come to book with a wide range of expectations. Some want characters. Some want story. Some want heavy action. Others want emotional passages. Some love description. If they take the time in a review to tell you how their expectations were met or not met, it can be very helpful.

5 – Are you, at all, concerned about the public’s reaction to Prince Lestat and why?

Of course. How could I not be? But there’s nothing I can do about the public’s reaction. I wrote the best book I could, the book I saw and felt, and wanted to write. There’s nothing I can add to that.

6 – What do you think authors like Hemingway, Austen, Dickens, Kerouac and other greats would have thought about anyone being able to review their books, press a button and have millions of people read it instantly?

Most writers, as far as I know, are brutally sensitive to reviews, and can be harmed by them, and they learn early on to protect themselves from reviews in a number of ways. Some simply don’t read reviews — ever. I’m not sure what the authors you mention would have thought of the internet age. I suspect most would have sealed themselves off from the voices that could block and hurt. The internet is a jungle. There are gangs of “readers” who enjoy nothing more than trashing authors, and they roam from site to site doing that. They think it’s fun. It’s better for writers if they ignore that kind of thing. Myself, I do read my reviews, and I do learn from them and learn from the experience. But I wouldn’t advise any other writer to do that. It’s too risky. It’s a personal choice.

7 – Do you think authors (as a group) do enough to support each other or defend themselves as well as indie authors?

In the past, writers didn’t do much as a group to support themselves and other writers. We were all loners. There were organizations, yes, but each writer was really on his own out there. Today, however there are more convivial organizations for Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers, and the like, and these authors come together, make friends, and do support one another, and I think that is wonderful. After all we aren’t in competition with one another really. We’re in competition with ourselves. There is plenty of room on the Best Sellers Lists of the world for a great number of authors to enjoy success. When it comes to supporting the indie author, well, I do see authors giving support, and I see indies coming together to share experience, and give one another pointers and suggestions. I think it’s great. —— The main thing is this: there are no rules in the world of authors and readers. There are many ways to succeed, and many ways to get the support you need as you pursue your life as a writer. It’s a great life really. No other art form offers such freedom and flexibility, so many ways to succeed, and involves so little expense. Setting out to be a film director is a nightmare by comparison. Studying all your life to be a ballet dancer involves no end of expense, travel, sacrifice. But a writer with a laptop can create a novel at the kitchen table that will eventually win her fame and fortune. It’s a great life, a great profession. True, the nasty internet gangsters are making life miserable for authors right now, and it’s ugly and unjust. But the freedom of the indie author to publish on his or her own handily makes up for that. When the literary story of this age is told, many authors will have a place in it. The internet gangsters will be utterly forgotten except as collective garbage. And we all from time to time have to avoid and step over garbage, don’t we?

Spewing Hate and Discontent

I have been pondering a question for a while now and that question is this “Why do people who spew hate and discontent feel they can not or will not sign their real names?”

I have found this to be true on many things I read whether it is books reviews on my books or reviews on other authors books. I have found it to be true on newspaper articles, and News station articles. Those who have core beliefs if they agree or not will sign their name. It is the trolls those people who spend their entire life hiding behind the name anonymous or some other insane alias to spout their venom.

First and foremost I have never seen anyone who has named their child anonymous or something like book reviewer aficionado or Likes books, or any other of the silly alias that cowards hide behind. When I am reading book reviews or comments on news articles that are signed with this signature I simply pass them over. They are not worth my time or effort.

My feeling is this, if someone believes in what they are saying that is truly believes then it would stand to reason they would want credit for it. However, if they are just putting down words for their own self validation, then it stands to reason they do not want the world to know who they are. Why you might ask. The only answer I can come up with is this. They know they have nothing to back up what they are saying. Sure it might be their opinion- however, even opinions need something to validate it. Not just well that is the way I feel or think. My question is why? I really want to know. I might still disagree but at least that person has given me a valid statement as to why they feel the way they do – That I can respect. However, to hide behind some silly alias because it makes one look good while they are spewing venom only makes that person look small and petty.

You might not like the way I write it might not be your cup of tea. Okay, I can live with that. There are some authors that I do not read because it is not my cup of tea.

It might be someone else’s cup of tea. If you read one of my books for the first time and you find it is not your cup of tea just say it. But put your real name on it. However, do not rip the book apart simply because it did not fit your agenda. That is not only childish it is unprofessional. Those people I will take to task every time. It is those people who presume to know me- to know what I was thinking when I put pen to paper. It is those people who live in an narrow minded world. Who refuse to see anything except through blinders. They read in a vacuum- they comprehend in a vacuum and they live in a vacuum. Therefore, any reviews they put out there is in a vacuum.

However, that being said, never ever would I post a review filled with venom.I would find something that I enjoyed. When I was 13 years old I read the Russian Classics. War and Peace and Anna Karina the length of those books alone would intimidate an adult- they were filled with description after description after description bordering on boredom. Yet, I read them. They were filled with Russian History things I never knew, things that later I studied in high school and because I had read those books the history made more sense to me. Would I wade through them again, probably not. However, if I did a review on those two books, they would receive a very good review. One has to remember when reading books a couple of things, the time period the book written, the language of the day, the attitude of the author that is the passion that author had for the subject he or she is writing about and most of all the research that any author worth their craft puts into a book before they ever write the first line.

For some troll to rip it apart and in many cases personally rip apart the author someone they do not know – have never met and probably never will meet is so petty and self depreciating. And to add to that using a alias just shows they have no moral compass no dreams and no goals.

So please, do me a favor, if my books are not your cup of tea just say so. I am a big girl with a thick skin. However, if you do not use your real name I will call you out. I do not suffer fools or stupidity at all. Oh and one last thing- if all of your reviews on other authors books are nasty yes you will get called out. It tells me that you have an agenda. And not one that is favorable to you.

A Kind Word Turneth Away Wrath!

“Actually you can judge a book by its cover, especially if it’s Black Bed Sheets. I know that you think that you are being brave or something when you publish my words verbatim and then pull an “I know you are, what am I?” but I am both a writer and a publisher. My short stories have been published in Shock Totem, Big Pulp and Lamplight.

Of course, neither accusation that you hurl at me matters since they don’t mitigate the fact that BBS is making books with ugly covers and can’t even be bothered to pay the writers. I made the criticism as a fellow publisher and if BBS wants to take umbrage that is perfectly within the rights of BBS.

The second accusation is just weird. Books are products. You can bitch and moan all you want about what I say about them, but at the end of the day, you aren’t going to sell ugly ass books like the ones put out by Black Bed Sheets. The potential readers understand – maybe not overtly, but implicitly – that a company that can’t take the time to design a cover that doesn’t look like utter shit is also a company that can’t be bothered to pay the writers, find decent writers, edit the books, copy edit the books or do anything but whine and bitch when they are criticized. This is why BBS will be just another publisher at a micro-horror convention trading books.

But congratulations for getting this one on the second page of my google search. I almost forgot about this meshuggas. I am currently busy promoting King David & The Spiders from Mars – the Amazon page is like so you can see what a decent cover looks like. Also, it’s blurbed by Poppy Z. Brite. I hear he’s pretty popular among horror writers.. Seems like a cool guy. Stories by the poetry editors at Strange Horizons too.

“Never judge a book by it’s cover” is figurative. When you take it literally, you run into problems.”

This was the second comment that fell into my in box this morning which pertained to a blog I wrote titled https://indieauthoryvonnemason.com/2013/12/08/never-judge-a-book-by-its-cover/

Mr. Lieder just couldn’t help himself. After he finished his rambling he just had to add the fact that he was promoting his work. Well I went and did what I do best I did a background on Mr. Lieder- those of you who know me know I hunt people in my spare time. In this case it was not that hard to do. Mr. Lieder has left a trail of hate and discontent all over the net. He wants to bash Black Bed Sheet book for their covers when after researching his so called publishing house I have to say some of his covers leave quite a bit to be desired especially 41qc6OHGRuL._SY344_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_BO1,204,203,200_

I have no clue why he hates Black Bed Sheet Books so much. The only reason that comes to mind is that BBS is a very successful publishing house and sadly Mr. Lieder’s does not appear to be.

When he makes this statement “The second accusation is just weird. Books are products. You can bitch and moan all you want about what I say about them, but at the end of the day, you aren’t going to sell ugly ass books like the ones put out by Black Bed Sheets. The potential readers understand – maybe not overtly, but implicitly – that a company that can’t take the time to design a cover that doesn’t look like utter shit is also a company that can’t be bothered to pay the writers, find decent writers, edit the books, copy edit the books or do anything but whine and bitch when they are criticized. This is why BBS will be just another publisher at a micro-horror convention trading books.” it makes me wonder who his sources are- where he got his information and can he back up his blather.

He tries to justify his credibility by letting me where he has been published. My reply to that is so what? If one continues to create a negative Public Relations persona one will soon be forgotten. Mr. Lieder’s pages are full of hate and discontent and it doesn’t matter the subject matter. If it is not about him it is not worthy. As I ran my background I found the source of his hate and discontent and it comes from within himself. He even admits it on his journal page. http://marlowe1.livejournal.com/

I find this sad for a couple of reasons the most important is that he understands he may have a problem but yet he goes out of his way to not change it. Second he is a talented man and yet he spends his time and energy wasting that talent on spewing venom and hate.

In a comment on another blog I had posted he proceeded to inform me of what a vile and evil creature I was and that I would die alone and unloved. When I read that I felt such sadness for this person. It sounds as if he is describing himself and yet when he looks in the mirror he refuses to change.

Any one that knows me knows that I defend those I care about and I care about the owner of Black Bed Sheets- he is one of my dearest friends in this cut throat industry. Sadly Mr. Lieder does not appear to have those kinds of loyalties. He is missing something in his life- be it self confidence, self love or good friends or all three. The best I can hope for him is that he will see he is cheating himself on so many levels- He is not hurting us at all we know who we are and what we are about. We do not have to draw negative attention to ourselves to succeed – we have already succeeded by being kind. So Mr. Lieder- my prayer for you is this. May you find the goodness that is in your soul- may you learn that people are not out to get you- may you understand we all are living on this planet and may you learn to love and like yourself warts and all. Then and only then will you learn to love others. I will continue to pray for you- no matter how much you hate it.

And just as an after thought I am very glad that I was able to boost your ratings. See good does come from adversity

I Just Want to Say Thank You!

The last two days have been interesting to say the least.  With that said I want to say a big thank you to several groups of people. First thank you to all of you who have stood by me while dealing with someone who for lack of a better work has an agenda. This person has gone to everyone of my books on Amazon and made statements that relate to the books in no way what so ever. Second she contacted other reviewers who posted reviews on my books. I did a rebuttal  as is my right, to my site. This person was hoping to start a firestorm of  I don’t know what.  The only thing it has done is drive up my numbers for my site. Thank you for that.

For those of you who think differently – understand this is my site, I pay for it. I choose or not choose the content. If I choose to post a rebuttal to a review again that is my right. You exercised your right to write the review in the first place. It was my choice to post my rebuttal here.  The only difference is I also choose to use my name. My philosophy is if you have the balls to post a review then at least have the balls to post your name and not stand behind initials, a made up name or the ever popular anonymous. When I see that I see someone that has something to hide.

As I have stated before I do not write any of my books especially my true crime like any other writer. It is not for everyone. That being said, if you don’t like it- fine get your money back. But understand- that if I don’t appreciate your take on it – I also have the right to state it. One person just told me that basically deal with it. No, I don’t think so. Opinions are two way streets- everyone has one. I am entitled to mine just as you are entitled to yours.  So don’t whine to me or blast me when I do a rebuttal. You put yourself out there when you posted your review.

The messages I have received, the stuff that has been posted on Amazon the last two days is childish and has absolutely nothing to do with my craft. For someone to post what was posted and to try to stir up a firestorm is almost laughable.

Those of us who write for a living know how hard it is. We know what it takes to make it. I have been threatened by the best. Believe me this isn’t it. I will continue to write and sell books. I will continue to have readers.

Those who continue their quest of destruction – you only hurt yourself. The last I heard this is still America. I still have the right to post my opinion. If you can not stand the heat please stay out of my kitchen.  If a review is posted that I take issue with I will continue to rebutt it. Get over it. Sending me nasty messages, trying to post ugly comments and going to other people will not change that. But please keep trying the more you hit this site the more it goes up thank you.

To those of you who know me know that I do not suffer fools lightly. I have no patience for them and I refuse to attend to their behavior. When it comes to those things that I am passionate about and feel strongly about I will fight to the death for them. You also know that I am usually very tolerant. You also know that when I have had enough. I am almost to that point.

Today I received a note from a publisher who was appalled at this person’s behavior. I am sure  that if this publisher had seen everything they would still be shaking their head.

That being said, I guess I have finally arrived. I have a stalker- not the first time. My second husband taught me well. He was the best at stalking. This stalker is trying to engage others to that level. Do yourselves a big favor don’t be drawn into her web. You all are better than that. Understand you have your opinion I have mine. Deal with it. That is pretty much what you have said to me.

I will continue to post what I  choose on this site as I said before it is my site. I pay for it. Just as you will continue to do whatever it is you do.

This is my public service announcement you are now free to move about the country.

Once Again For Those Who Didn’t Get it the First Time!!!

Okay general public for those of you who did not and I repeat did not get it the first time I am once again revisiting this subject. The subject is this. “Everyone thinks they are a Critic.”  I know I know this should by now be a dead issue, but unfortunately it keeps rising from the dead sort of like the Zombie Apocalypse. So one more time here goes.

I am human. I know that is a stunning revelation. Most people including my children think I can leap tall buildings in a single bound. At one time I could but age and arthritis has stopped that. Anyway, back to I am human. Read that sentence again. “I AM HUMAN!” Commit it memory. While I strive to rise to perfection it just is not going to happen not for anyone no matter how OCD we are. That goes for anything we do, keeping house, working in the public and yes even writing. Even editors miss things, believe me I have seen it time and time again (including traditional houses ). It happens deal with it or stop reading. By the way have you read any newspapers lately? Not only do they have misspelled words, most journalist can not put a coherent sentence together. Not only that but the entire article makes no sense. Okay enough that back to me. I know it is always about me!

My books are best sellers and award winners! They are well written and well done. Not withstanding the human element. I work hard to make sure they are not only entertaining but informative. My true crimes are not written in a sanitized and spoonfed way. They are hard core and raw. There is a reason for them being written in that vein.   I want the reader to feel the victims. IF you can’t handle it just say so. Don’t act like the book is not well written. That cheapens the victims. Remember it is not about you!  If you want sanitized read Ann Rule!

I do not put table of contents in my true crimes simply because it is not a reference book. Seriously that is what one reader complained about in Silent Scream. To add insult to injury they didn’t have the balls to contact me, yes I have an author page on Amazon, they contacted Amazon. I would rather that person return the kindle book, I don’t need or want that type of reader. If you wish to critique my work fine, but have the balls to do it to me not behind my back. That will cause me to send out the legions of flying monkeys.

I have been reading books since before I started to school way back before most of my readers were a twinkle in their daddy’s eye. I have read some books that I could barely get through, but never not once did I publicly criticize. The reason is simple that author spent many days and nights on their craft and just because it was not my cup of tea didn’t mean that it was not worthy of print.

I have read many books published by traditional houses where there were so many misspelled words and bad grammar  that I felt like I needed a red pencil just to get through it. However, that did not take away from the story. If  you as a reader are spending all of your time looking for errors then maybe you need to be an English teacher not a reader.

For those of you who are authors you understand where I am coming from, writing is not for sissies nor is it for those who cannot walk those miles. For those of you who have never written a lick but tell anyone who will listen, “I can write better than that.” – I have a challenge for you. Stop talking and do it. Anyone can say it but not everyone can do it.

Last but not least, if you want to be a critic- then you first must learn to be an author!

Now back to your regularly schedule program!
