Coming Attractions For April

This is "Anything Goes April" - Because I have been on vacation, not a lot got done. I have also been too busy to be getting online much these days. I have a lot going on in the "real world" LOL. In fact, I may not even play fantasy football this year because I am so busy. I would like to tell you some of what is going on, but I'm not at liberty to disclose this information at this time. LOL Anyhow, this is what I have put together thus far for April 2013. But as you know, there may be surprise posts popping up any day. Some of my posts here are planned in advance, and some are spur of the moment.


April 1st 2013 - "Bully Recap: The Character Of A Bully"


Taking a look at the bullies and the hate trail they leave behind.


April 8th, 2013 - "Tired Of Bryant: Bryant Is Tired Of You Bullies"


Things Carroll Bryant is tired of.


April 12th, 2013 - "Democrats versus Republicans"


What happened after the Clinton administration? It's been all uphill ever since.


April 17th, 2013 - "Gun Control: Why I Own A Gun"


There is a specific reason why I own a gun, and only one reason why I own a gun. That reason just may shock you. Then again, if you have been paying attention to what is going on in America, maybe you won't be very surprised at all.


April 22nd, 2013 - "Obesity: Why You Are Fat"


If you listen to NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and people like him, then you deserve all the communism and socialism you get in your diet. There are only two possible reasons he would try and ban 32 ounce soda cups: 1) He is plain stupid and really thinks that junk-food and sugar-drinks are making people fat or 2) He is a communist liar, and he just wants government to force people to make better choices as per "their opinion". Trust me, junk food and 32 ounce soft-drinks are not making you fat. Not to worry, I will tell you what it is that is putting all of that junk in your trunk.

Jude Henderson (In Her Own Words)

Today, I am going to share some messages from Jude. These are screenshots of her own words. Back when I decided I was going to end our – whatever you wanna call it – relationship where emailing was concerned the first time because I was at my wits end with her odd behavior, she sent me this message.

My few trips to California wasn’t all business. She and I had many pow-wows. It was a hot and cold relationship perhaps from both sides. But when you’re sitting around in a strange place waiting to go back home, and everything is quiet, messages like these would brighten an otherwise dark moment in time.

Then there were the times I got strange ones from her. Feeling that there was always more to the story where she was concerned, I shared a few thoughts, and this was her response. The irony of this message was that I never mentioned “The guy next door.” - Or accused her of ever cheating on me.  Yet this is what she sent one night.

And then there were conversations where we would discuss her coming to America and going to college here. But she was proud of her scholarship, and rightly so, but still, her ways always confused me. One minute, she wanted to go to college in the States and the next, she didn’t. I couldn’t keep up with her many changing moods.


But as we see-sawed back and forth between our many changing emotions – she would always use threats of suicide to try and manipulate me to give in to her wishes and wants. This is a prime example of it. And this is what I got tired of. Who wants to be with someone, even in friendship, if all they want to do is talk about how they want to kill themselves? But soon, those threats no longer worked. It only made me angry when she made them.


I look back on these things and wonder, how – or why – did everything go to hell like it did? I may never get the answer to that. I tried everything in my power to be a friend to her. It just wasn’t enough. She didn’t want to be friends in public, and I didn’t want to be friends in private. But why she had to go and befriend my new friend and blog partner just to manipulate her into allowing Jude to be an admin on our shared blog, I’ll never know. I’ll never know what demon took her over and made her think that I would be okay with that.

It didn’t have to be like this.

Jude Henderson Banned For Pornography

Recently, I received an email letting me know that Jude Henderson's blog was banned by public libraries for pornography. I thought this to be somewhat ironic. (Inside joke) And perhaps a bit funny. I don't know. Anyhow, the other day I stopped into the library with a friend and thought to check it out for myself. So I did. And sure enough, I got onto one of their computers and started going to various blogs, mine included. Of the blogs I visited, only hers was banned for pornography. Check it out for yourself.

What does this mean? I don't know. I just thought it was funny. Hey, we can do that here on the Looking Glass from time to time. It's okay to have a little fun now and then.

I'm Carroll Bryant ... and this is the Looking Glass.

Things We learned:

* Jude Henderson Book blog "In Between" is banned by public libraries for "pornography"

* Carroll likes having fun every now and then

Patrick Brown And Black Mail?

So, I stumbled onto this comment on STGRB website where someone asked the question: “Why does Patrick Brown allow bullying?” This person featured my attack as a primary example. But then from that one question did another arise: “Do these bullies have something on Patrick Brown?” Or better yet, “Is he being blackmailed?” Here is a screenshot of it.

Of course I am going to subscribe to the notion that he isn’t. But you have to admit, it’s a reasonable question to ask. I mean, why does he allow that sort of activity to go on, on Goodreads? I guess you could place that question in the same drawer as the one that asks: “Why did Patrick Brown and Otis Chandler allow sexually explicit role-playing to go on for so long before addressing it AFTER my article was released?”

You see, if you allow yourself to try and answer the role-playing question, then perhaps that might lead you to the bullying question. I already know my answer. THE BOTTOM LINE!

Yes, that’s right folks, the oldest reason in the world, money. You see, Patrick knows that these bullies have nothing to do all day. For the most part, they stay glued in their chairs and on the internet. They have no life outside of Goodreads. They don’t golf, bowl, they can’t write or do anything artistic for the most part, and simply put, I doubt they have anyone who gives two shits about them in the real world. That or, they are just lonely, disgruntled and angry people full of rage, jealousy and hate. Maybe they hate their lives. Who knows?

But Patrick knows this. He also knows that when these bullies attack, many people come to witness it. Take for example my attack. In a 48 hour period, my blog on GR had over 75,000 views! How much revenue did Goodreads collect for that weekend? The fact remains, these bullies are obsessed and addicted to drama that they themselves start. And when they do their thing, attacking authors, they and their bully gang from the hate group “Badly Behaving Authors” located on Goodreads and Amazon Forums Boards, will gather and prey and give GR much needed “clicks” of the mouse, which in turn, generates the revenue and moves them (GR) up the Alexa Rankings. This is why he allows these ToS violations to occur repeatedly.

You see, the bullies do most of the responding to their own drama and wars that they start. Take for example, Ade and Belle. These two know how to start drama. These shots of their “book review” and the comments that follow are a clear cut example of how Patrick Brown and Otis Chandler allow these violations to continue without consequences to the people who posted them. I want you to take a look at them and then scroll back up to the ToS and ask yourself, “Are these violations of the ToS?” And if you think so, then ask yourself, “Why doesn’t Patrick Brown or Otis Chandler do anything about it?”

Then I guess you can come to your own conclusion.

And of course, some comments made in these reviews that have absolutely nothing to do with the book. In this next shot, I am called a racist, but then notice how Ade responds to it, saying – “I like how STGRB says that they're trying to stop the bullies, but their own followers/members name-call and make racist statements.”

Really Ade? GR is trying to stop the bullies? Like yourself and Belle and the rest of you who responded on these comments? Talk about hypocrisy. And how could you dare call me a GR bully? I'm not a member of GR anymore. (Not even undercover - Or am I?) Don’t believe me? Read for yourself.

And next we get to see Belle ask the question of what I could be hiding, after saying that I have a problem with “chubby” girls. (Which I don’t. Because if I did, I would have never even bothered giving Jude a second look in the beginning.) But we will soon see more of the bullies and their fascination with me and my looks. They claim I am “hiding” but the truth is, they don’t know where to look to find my “pictures”. And this drives them crazy! LOL But still, when Jude does a video, why does she cover up her body? Why don’t she film her entire body? What is she hiding? Maybe you bullies could ask her this since you’re good friends with her and everything. The same goes for her pictures. It is always head shots, no body.

But I am not here to focus on that, I am here today to show you repeated violations of the Goodreads ToS and to ask ourselves, “Why does Patrick Brown and Otis Chandler permit these violations to occur? Maybe that is a question you can ask them someday. I wouldn’t hold my breath for an answer though. Just saying. Anyhow, in no specific order, here are your violations. Enjoy.

And in that last one, Zoe realizes that she “mis-read” a quote from one of my books where she cried foul on my part, claiming that “I” said that I wanted to rape a girl. In truth, the character from the book mentioned “raping a girl of a character flaw” – not an actual physical rape. But Zoe screamed “Rapist” at me and now she realizes HER mistake, but did she ever apologize to me for it? Nope! And she never will either because bullies don’t apologize for anything. But by God, those badly behaving authors sure do have to apologize damn it!

Are we seeing the picture here? Good! Now, let’s see some more shots of GR ToS violations.

As for that last one, really Ade? You tried to “convince” your friend of “your” opinion? What? You don’t like for your friends to be able to think for themselves? Really?

(Please consult my page “Traits of a Cyber Bully”)

And how can we forget the “fake reviews”? These are reviews given when the reviewer fails to either even read the book, or just reads the first free chapter offered by some of the E-book sites. Here is a couple examples of that. One by “Coaxial” and one by “Martha D.” (As for Martha, I offered her a chance to just prove to me that she “owns” the Ebook by just posting the first line of chapter three. She didn’t because she couldn’t. She couldn’t because she doesn’t own it. She never read it.) I busted her and now she is all upset about it. As for “Coaxial”? Well, he or she speaks for him or herself with the many comments he or she leaves all over the place in these bully attacks. You can read those comments on my GR author page (book reviews) or go to STGRB whenever they mention another attack on an author and chances are, you’ll get to read some of Coaxial’s stupid and hateful comments.

Ade's review of "Year Of The Cat" (Click on comments and read for yourself how bullies behave)

Belle's review of "Year Of The Cat" ..... Coaxial's review of "Year Of The Cat"

Martha D's review of "Year Of The Cat"

This is her blog. Perhaps you could go there and let her know that she shouldn't be reviewing books that she never even read. (Funny how none of the bullies likes any of the books of the authors they target. Really? There are singers I don't care for, but I enjoy their music. Anyhow, here is Martha's link. You may as well go there and give her the views, after all, that's the only reason she chimed in with her two cents, to get more page views. Confessions of a Bibliophile

And here is a link to the hate group on Goodreads called Badly Behaving Authors. They are the literary worlds "Judges, Jury, and Executioners" of author careers and they get to decide what books are good or bad. They are the rulers of the GR universe. Patrick Brown may be the "community manager", but these people are the real ones in charge around there. Make no mistake about that!

The question is, WHY? What do these people have on Patrick Brown, if anything, that prevents him from enforcing the Goodreads ToS?

I’m Carroll Bryant …. And this is The Looking Glass

Things we learned today:
* Goodreads HAS a ToS (Terms of Service)
* Patrick Brown is community manager
* Patrick Brown doesn't enforce the GR ToS
* The members of the hate group BBA run the show
* Ade, Belle, Coaxial and Martha D are 100 percent bullies
* Ade, Belle, Coaxial and Martha D are liars!
* Coaxial and Martha D reviews books they never even read!
* Zoe admits misreading my quote
* Zoe never apologizes for "libeling" me by wrongfully saying that "I" wanted to rape a girl
* Zoe is a bully and a liar!
* The bullies aren't too bright
* Patrick Brown "might" be getting blackmailed by the BBA group
* Goodreads ToS would make good toilet paper (You know, since it's meaningless and never gets enforced anyway)

Sad Times At GenX High

Well, these are some sad days for the bully blogger currently known as GenX. It seems like her brand of crap wasn't enough to feed her readers so she enlisted the help of some neighborhood thugs, Ash The Bastard and some pimple faced mascot named Edward Blake.

Ash wrote this amazing article about .... well actually, I got lost in what her freaking point was (is) but she did spell most of the words she used correctly so, that's always a plus!

Anyhow, her and Edward wrote their articles and it was same old "Blah, blah, blah, STGRB, blah, blah, blah, Carroll Bryant, blah, blah, blah, *Tears* and blah."

Okay, you're right, I have to come up with something new. Anyhow, here is another example of them spinning their web of lies and speculation. (and stalking my blogs) They post a screenshot of me saying I was going on vacation. Really? That's news? WTF?

As you can read, they "uncovered" (using their collective investigative skills) my trip to California. In the process, they assume I am going to meet up with Athena. (I don't know Melissa) Anyhow, Ash says I am going there to pursue my "acting dreams". Well, first of all, I don't have acting dreams nor do I "want" to be a movie star. Nowhere on my blog will you see me saying I want to be a "movie star". (But again, proof doesn't mean anything to GenX and her thug bullies) But yes, I am going there to go on a few auditions. Nothing fancy, mind you, just going to have a little fun. Why? Well, simply put, because I can. I have the time. Anyhow, prior to arriving in San Diego, I am going to hang out with some family in Vegas. Why? Because I can. I have the time.

As for meeting up with Athena, I'm shocked they would even suggest that. After all, aren't they the ones who say "Carroll likes them young?" LOL Then obviously, if they believed that, then they would know that Athena, while a very nice lady, is too old for me. So Ash, make up our minds, do I like them young or do I like them more mature and married? Pick one and stick with it.

So is this how far you have sunk GenX? To saying that Athena and I should be together? Is this payback for me saying that you and John would make a good couple? So you get Ash to do your dirty work now? LOL And this new monkey, Edward? So let me get this straight, you have run out of new ideas for your fictional writing that now you're stealing all of my ideas? Didn't you steal one of my ideas already? I'm pretty sure I documented that in my post Carroll Bryant Lies when you said that I mentioned in one of my interviews that "I wanted to be a porn star" when I was 14? That was for posting the John Green tweet, wasn't it? Trying that old "sex scandal" trick against me. Kind of back-fired though, didn't it? And now Ash is trying the old "They would be good together" trick? One question GenX, Ash and Edward, are you going to make this a common habit? Stealing my material? LOL (Just asking)

Anyhow, Ash mentions that I like to doc-drop. Really Ash? I do? Where? Show us all where I doc dropped anyone. You can't, can you? Why? Because I never did it. Do you people ever tire of telling lies? (Just asking)

Here, let me show everyone the bully version of me doc dropping.

If you notice, Anon at the bottom writes a dialogue about it. But obviously, GenX has yet to produce any evidence on any of my blogs or anywhere else that I doc-dropped anybody. Or even threatened to. Why? Because it never happened. You can't prove it if it never happened. Now check out how I prove that GenX doc-drops.

See the difference? I provide a screenshot where GenX and her goons don't. Now that is how it's done! LOL

Now of course they will whine and cry that it was "public" information, but still, to go to the trouble to find it and then post it is still questionable character, wouldn't you agree?

So this is the type of people who hang out at the GenXpose blog. Just a bunch of monkeys with way too much fecal matter to throw around and no evidence to back up their "Blah, blah, blah's."

And this will probably be the theme for Gen's new blog "Carroll Bryant Lies". I got fifty dollars that says it will - any takers? LOL Hey, GenX, Ash, John and Edward - this could be your next big "investigative" report - 'Carroll Bryant Gambles Online!' - LOL And it will only take about the same amount of time as all your other "big" news stories about me and STGRB, which is what? Like five minutes? Ten maybe? Fifteen tops? LOL

Oh, and Ash also claims in her "big" story that she went online at Goodreads to search for those role play groups. You know the ones, the ones that Patrick Brown and his staff raced like firefighters to a chemical fire just to get rid of them. Hide them. Delete them. Whatever. Yeah, Ash didn't find any. That must mean they never did exist. Hhhmm, then why would Patrick rush so fast and hard to hide and delete them and change GR policy if they never existed? You see, hate makes you stupid. And these bullies over at GenXpose and Carroll Bryant Lies, they are about as stupid as stupid can possibly get. But .... you didn't need me to tell you that, did you?

My apologies.

Chin up Ash, and Edward and ... the rest .... someday, you'll be able to write big people posts just like me. And better yet, you'll be able to do it without lying!

Yeah, I'm sorry, I over did it. No, you won't be able to do it without lying. It's in your blood by now.

I'm Carroll Bryant ... and this is The Looking Glass. 
Things We Learned Today:
* Ash and Edward wanna be grown up bloggers someday
* Ash likes to lie
* Still no evidence of Carroll "doc-dropping"
* There is evidence that shows GenX doc-drops
* Carroll wants to be a movie star
* Yeah, that statement above was sarcasm again ^
* Carroll is going to California, but not to meet up with Athena
* GenX and her bully friends steal ideas from Carroll (Twice so far!)
* Lying is in their (bullies) blood
* The same old "Blah, blah, blah" by GenX and friends is getting pretty old

* Ash thinks it's big news that I go on vacation

Jude Henderson Email Test

Okay everyone, let's get serious here. No, I mean it. Let's really get serious here. By now, everyone is probably aware of this famous "email" that Jude posted back before my attack which was mentioned repeatedly during my attack on Goodreads and ever since. It's an email which I allegedly wrote her telling her to go kill herself.

Now, I have never seen this email so I can't very well say with 100 percent assurance that I wrote it. It may not even state in the email that I wanted her to die or kill herself, that could just be embellished by the bullies or even an outright lie. I mean, let's face it, the bullies do lie a lot and have been caught at it on multiple times. For instance, the Zoe comment on Goodreads where she claimed I said I wanted to "rape" a girl in a quote which in truth, was a quote in a book made by a character in the book and had nothing at all to do with an actual physical rape of a girl.

Another good example of catching a bully in a lie came recently with GenX who said she wasn't Amanda Welling and well, we know that turned out to be a lie.

I even had some bullies tell me it couldn't be fake when I suggested that possibility once. They said you can't fake emails.

Really? Okay then, let's put that theory to the test, shall we?

In the screenshot below, you will see an email - an actual email that Jude sent me one day. I did one thing to this email, and that is - I whited out her and mine email addresses. You will notice the white gap above her message. That was the area where our email addresses were. (I didn't think it would be nice of me to give her email out to the world)

However, the message she sent me is real. (Or is it?) This is the question you have to answer. Keeping in mind that if an email can't be "doctored" or "altered" then it would make this email real and true. Then again, if it is fake, then that would open the door to the possibility that the email Jude Henderson showed all of her bully friends (which led to my being attacked) could have been "doctored" or "altered".

Making any sense here? Good. Let's continue.

Now, also keep in mind that I am not a computer genius by any means, however, Jude Henderson is going to college to learn how to do all of this fancy stuff with computers and design and .... you know ... all that good jazz. So, no matter how good or bad I am with my limited skills - Jude is clearly a thousand times better with her skills.

So, I ask you. I ask you all. (Mostly the bullies) is this email message an actual message that Jude wrote me? ..... Or did I alter it?

You be the judge.

I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is The Looking Glass.
If you would like to leave your answer in comments, feel free to do so.
*** Is this email message from Jude REAL or FAKE? *** 
The answer when I return from my vacation. But again, feel free to guess. (Just don't be too surprised with the answer)

The Legend Of Carroll Bryant

Back in July of 2012, when I was first attacked, there was a lot of crap going on. For those who missed it, I wrote a blog on Goodreads (then later posted on my original blog) where I talked about my experience with some book reviewers, and placed them on a “list.” My claim was that I had been “approached” by some reviewers who offered me their “services” in the form of a book review and / or an interview on their blog in exchange for a free read. Which I delivered, and they did not.

 Consider this: These promises were made in August/September of 2011. And broken by October / November of the same year. I did not post my list until July of 2012. And I didn’t post the list to just “get back” at these people. The truth is, I would have never made that post if it weren’t for one small thing. That Jude wouldn’t have “stalked” me on one of my shared blogs. (Which I talk about here in this post called Emails With Jude )

The fact is, I had let it go. I was moving on. Then Jude befriended my blog partner just so she could “sneak” onto our shared blog under the guise of “design” issues just so she could get back at me for blocking her months earlier from emailing me by leaving links to “her” (Jude’s) blogs. She also requested that my friend “not” tell me about it. To keep their little “friendship” a secret.


I see. (And I’m the stalker?)
After the “BULLY” attack on me on the website,, several people took to their trusty blogs to write about the incident. Just a word of note: Not one of them ever contacted me for “my side” of the story. Thus, without proof or evidence, they went ahead and took the liberty to write about my incident based on “Jude Henderson’s” side of everything. (We’ll be getting to her soon enough. Doesn’t the anticipation of it all drive you nuts? LOL)
Anyhow, we are going to take a look at some more “irresponsible” reporting of a story by amateur bloggers and why they should NOT give up their day jobs. This inside look will raise the question: Are these people bullies? Bully supporters? Or are they just trying to rustle up some fame for themselves? Or could it be they just wanted to defend their friend?
Maybe we’ll find out by the end of this report.

Special note: I consider myself an amateur blogger too, so you know …  but before I would rush to “judgment” on anybody, even I would know to try and get the other person’s side of a personal relationship story. Even I know the golden rule of “He Said, She Said”.  To this date: None of these people have ever contacted me in an attempt to get that other side. The result? Irresponsible reporting.

I understand that when it’s a girl versus a guy - It’s easy to side with the girl. To assume “she” was the victim of stalking, bullying and harassment. But as we will see by Jude’s own words and actions, she was the one stalking, bullying and harassing me. She was the one who had a “crush” on me. All I ever wanted was friendship.

  So let’s just go to this issue first, people blogging about me irresponsibly. I will start it out with this screenshot at bookish, (Evie Seo) who did a post about me then removed it. Permanently? I don’t know.

For whatever reason, it is gone now. Maybe it will make another appearance later. Who knows?
Anyhow, I assure you, it wasn’t kind. Nor are the ones I will be showing you later. While I do appreciate Bookish for taking it down, I condemn her for ever having posted it in the first place. But I sure would like to know why she took it down.
Another blogger who took initiative to get themselves involved and post some irresponsible words and very misleading information was “The Runaway Pen”. (I see the irony of her blog title)

She (T.L. Shreffler) starts her post out hypocritically to begin with, stating: “I try to avoid drama at all costs.” - Really? Is this why you decided to “write’ a post about someone you don’t even know to begin with? To avoid “drama”? And someone you don’t know anything about? You know, to “avoid” drama?
Moving on ……
Then she proceeds to say: “But as I cruised through my favorite book blogs this morning, I ran across a “change in reviewing policy” by Bookish. (How coincidental?) She then says: “Basically this “guy” Carroll Bryant (or is it a girl? Still confused) sent out a bunch of books expecting reviews. S/he claimed the books didn’t get reviewed as promised several after several months of waiting. S/he then went crazy and sent an evil, nasty email to a teenage book blogger telling her to go kill herself and other mean things. You can read more about it on Evie’s “Bookish” blog.” You can read it here for yourself on this screenshot.

First of all, “The Runaway pen”, I did not “send” out a bunch of books “expecting” reviews on a whim. I don’t practice that kind of behavior. You will be hard pressed to find anyone to whom I ever “asked” for them to review any of my books. These people “approached” me. There is a big difference. When YOU approach someone and “make” them a deal, and that other person holds up their end of the bargain, then YOU best damn well hold up your end also. (I also like how us authors are expected to be “professional” where-as these bloggers feel like they don’t have to be. Word up: If you expect others to be professional, try being one yourself.)
I did not go crazy with an evil email over any of these people “stealing” from me. That email in which Jude showed everyone is an email - more likely - from when she used her threats of “suicide” once too many times towards me in our long standing friendship, and thousands of emails we sent back and forth. While I have never seen this email, I can’t even rightly say I even wrote it. But I do recall once when she threatened to kill herself  (yet again) when I mentioned that I was intending to block her from emailing me once. When she sent me that “I’m gonna kill myself” email, I pretty much got angry with her. I guess I should have been more understanding, but there is only so many “threats” of suicide one can take from somebody and I just grew weary of it and simply put, called her bluff. Obviously, she didn’t go through with it. Obviously, it was a bluff. Sometimes, you have to use tough love with some people and that was my “tough” love response to her: To “go ahead and kill herself” if that’s what she wanted to do. But again, I was very angry about it because I cared about her deeply at that time as a friend, and it hurt me deeply that she would say something like that (again!) after I had repeatedly told her how much it hurt me when she would say it. She used that threat of suicide as weapon to try and get me to behave the way she wanted me to behave. Hence: One of the reasons why I wanted to block her from emailing me.
So “The Runaway Pen” - You got it so wrong! But that’s what happens when you decide to join in with the drama, (you claim you don’t want to be a part of in the first place - LIAR!)  and form alliances with bullies and haters.
The she goes on to make a little list of her own. Rules for “authors” I imagine. Just like a bully, she wants to put “authors” in their place. First of all, who the hell is she to give anyone advice? She can’t even get a story straight. Anyhow, here is the screenshot.

Here is the list: 1) Not begging for reviews like a starving orphan. - (Well, first of all Evie, I don’t beg for reviews period!)
2) Not responding to bad reviews like a rabid animal. (Secondly, Evie, I never responded to a “bad” review.)
3) Not “making” a ridiculous list of book bloggers who “don’t do their job” - (You mean, like your ridiculous list of advice for Indie authors?) And yes, I stand behind the list. I think us authors owe it to one another to “out” the ones who steal from us. Some authors can’t afford to be “taken” by bad reviewers. They can’t afford to just give away free reads (books) and get nothing in return. Perhaps if YOU and YOUR bully friends were to learn this, you would understand why some authors have a problem with reviewers. If you’re going to deal with “professionals” then you might want to try and act like one in return.
4) Not initiating or instigating internet drama. (Like when you and your bully pals at “Badly behaving Authors” group on Goodreads and Amazon Forum Boards do? And oh, by posting your stupid, irresponsible and misleading blog post?) Wait! What am I saying? You already stated that you didn’t want to be a part of the drama.
Okay, here is a question:  How do these self - proclaimed “amateur” bloggers come up with the nerve to even start giving advice to authors about anything? And why would anyone in their right mind even listen to them? That’s what I would like to know. For self-proclaimed amateurs, they sure do offer up a lot of professional advice.
Evie Seo - You lose! You don’t know what the hell you are talking about, and I doubt you ever will. But it is irresponsible “reporting” in my eyes. Or is it just that she is a bully? Or is it she just wants more followers? (As this screenshot might suggest)

I’ll let you people decide. But it is apparent that Evie got all of her “knowledge” from reading a blog, and not from any actual effort on her part to get the ‘real” story or the truth. Yeah, I agree, AMATUERISH! But that’s we are in the end, aren’t we? Just a bunch of amateur bloggers. (Myself included) However, at least I try to get the truth through screenshots and links. And present them as evidence. (Like I am doing now.) Wouldn’t it be good if these bullies did the same?
Moving on ….
Then “Book Goggles” gets into the action. She tries to be neutral, but if she really wanted to write something about the issue, she would have contacted me to get my side of it. But did she? No! That would be too difficult. To actually have to consult with someone who was a victim of a bully attack and get their side of it all. Like I said, she “tries” to come off as neutral. She claims I was mad or something. I was never mad at these reviewers, just very disappointed that they made me an offer then backed out just because of their friend, Jude. I was also just bewildered by the unsuspecting attack against me that was organized for a few days in advance. And how do I know this? Because I posted my “List” blog on GR on a Monday and hardly got any views (About 35) until that following Friday, at around 3:30 pm. From there, and up until I got banned on that Sunday afternoon, I had over 75,000 views and over 1000 comments. It took me and two friends to sign in on my account and start deleting it all. (Well, at least we know these bullies don’t stay in their spaces. But hell, we all knew that already, didn’t we?)

I even posted a comment where in it, I made myself available for her to ask me questions to get the real truth. Did she? I’ll let you figure that one out. Here is the shot.

And then someone with the blog “The Rex Files” decides to make themselves a name off of me. And like the rest of them, gets the story completely inaccurate. (While trying to be neutral) I like when these bullies “attempt” in being neutral. But you can read them like a …. book?

His blog subtitle reads: “A sounding board for my forays into writing speculative fiction” Well Rex, you got that right. Your “article” about me was about as fiction as it gets. One look at his 33 members list might tell the truth as to why he wanted to throw in his two cents. (And two cents is about all his story is worth, if that.)

He mentions that I was working hard to build my “standing” on Goodreads. That’s right, Rex, I was. I was very active. I did have a lot of fans in a very short amount of time. But you use page eight of “Lucy’s” story about being “stalked” as your so called “evidence” of what went down? Really? You take the word of bullies and liars and presto! You got your truth? And from Absolute Write? The biggest bully/lying organization on the internet? Really?
Okay then …..
Anyhow, I will use those very same comments to prove my side of it.

I didn’t post several blogs about reviewers stealing from me, Rex, I wrote one. Last time I checked, one was not “several”. Anyhow, another of your ’inaccuracies’ is when you mention that I gathered up some supporters. I never did any such thing. And I certainly didn’t gather up anyone at STGRB because at  that time, I didn’t know who they were. And nobody “advised” me I was going about it the incorrect way. So far, your “evidence” gathering of the truth sucks dude.
And then I see you got “Jude’s” side of the story, but not mine? A little one-sided wouldn’t you say? And it wasn’t false “photo’s” (plural) either. It was just one photo. (Singular) But I already explained about that. And she used the word smitten? Well, if her only reason for being my friend in the beginning was because of that photo, seems to me Jude is a little shallow. Agreed? (But we’ll continue with Jude later in this post)
You used the word “courted” her. Really? Did she tell you that? Your reliable source? I wouldn’t call being friends with someone counts as “courting”, but way to spin it there Rex. (Like I said, they “try” to come off neutral.)
I flew to Mexico and she refused me? Did she say that to you? Well, had you bothered to ask me, you would find out that “she” didn’t refuse me at all. But how would you know this? Look at your “source”. By the way, I didn’t fly to Mexico, I flew to California.
I stalked and harassed her? Again, she told you this? So I guess her posting shit up in her group on Goodreads first doesn’t count as harassing me? And I guess her befriending my friend and sweet talking my friend to make her an admin on one of our shared blogs doesn’t constitute as “stalking”? It seems to me she says a lot without proof where as I can show you proof of it being the other way around. Now, who do you think people will believe? You, her and all her bully friends who have no proof, or me, with the proof? Yeah, think about that one Rex.
Then I see you mention that she did post images of emails she claims I sent. However, she posted them before the weekend of my attack. When the people came to attack me that weekend, they were mentioning something about those emails. So before I got banned, she had already posted those emails. I bet she never posted the emails she sent in response or prior did she? I bet she didn’t post the whole entire conversation between us, did she? Of course not, that would put everything in too much of a context. Do you see the manipulation of the truth process here folks?
I never said my list was posted under false pretense. That is an outright lie on your behalf Rex. I also never confirmed any story. You are so full of shit dude, I can’t even begin to express how much of a liar you are. And you sir, are a liar!
I also did not demand anybody take down anything. I merely offered a truce. You are some piece of work Rex. No wonder your fan base is so small. Everyone knows you’re a liar. (And a bully) And the bookshelves that my books were placed under after the attack were not done so by readers, but by bullies. Big difference because bullies don’t read. I also see you failed to mention the libelous words posted about me and the threats made by your friends. And the fact that these so called readers rated and reviewed my book without reading it and even in their reviews, libel me left and right with vulgarity. Oh yeah, I see you left that stuff out.

My story does affect all authors. It’s what can happen to them if they get targeted by the Goodreads bullies. But I say, no author should fear these people or you, Rex. People should stand up to you and your bully friends. And your “fake” reporting of events. You are a laughing stalk Rex, and you probably always will be. But the next time you want to do a real story on someone, you might want to get both sides of it. Otherwise, you’re just a bully adding to the pile.
Speaking of adding to the pile, here is Young Adult Novel Reader adding on to it.

She uses me as a primary reference to authors being “unprofessional” just because I got swindled by some reviewers and stalked by an immature girl. I guess if being honest and outraged over people stealing from you and breaking promises - that’s being unprofessional. Forget about the people who are stealing and breaking promises, that is okay I guess. Good to know this person’s idea of professionalism. Here is a news flash - authors aren’t ruining the book reviewer business, bad book reviewers are ruining it. Or should I say, irresponsible book reviewers and bloggers? And like the rest, could she just be trying to get some attention with her irresponsible post? Check out her followers list and you decide.

Now, let’s take a look at those comments on page eight of Lucy’s “stalker” story, shall we? We will start with Jude talking about me stalking her - of course she fails to mention that time when SHE befriended my friend and asked her to not say anything about it to me and sweet talking my friend, a year younger than Jude, to let her onto our share blog as an admin. Funny how she leaves that out of her comments. (And I’m the stalker?) And of course she only did this to get back at me for blocking her from emailing me. Let’s take a look at that comment shall we?

In this next shot, Jude talks about that it has been 9 months after she and her friends bailed out from their promises to me. And yes Jude, you were number one. You weren’t originally going to be on the list but after you sent your friends after me, and they gathered up their friends and so on and so on, I decided you earned it to be on that list. But remember Jude, the only reason I posted that list was to get back at you for sneaking on my shared blog through my friend and co-blogger. Remember that? Remember when you did that? Of course you do, but again, in this next shot, you somehow fail to mention this.

Now, here is Jude admitting the truth. That she HAD a crush on me. Check it out.

Now here she is later using sarcasm - contradicting the very words she spoke in the previous screenshot. See for yourself.

Also notice in the above screenshot, in true bully fashion, how she accuses me of being “Jennifer” without any evidence to support this claim. This is how these bullies operate. They say things that aren’t true and that they themselves can’t prove, but say them anyway just to spread the lie. You know, to plant that seed.
I just want to take a little timeout here to try and understand something - Jude is an 18 year old adult and she is still having “crushes”? And because of this crush (like a 13 year old girl would have), she loves my book, wants to review it on her blog and give me an interview - then when the crush is over, my book is no longer good? I don’t get my interview? Or book review? And all of her friends who came to me with their offer, back out too? And I’m suppose to believe that this is co-incidence?  Meanwhile, I am just being / trying to be her friend yet Rex (of the Rex Files - remember him?) says that I am “courting” her and in his much thorough report about me (and talking to Jude) her “crush” never came up? Nor her successful attempt of stalking me on my shared blog after befriending my friend in secret? Really? And I am the stalker?
So far, the proof points in a different direction, doesn’t it? Then to top it all off, Jude makes a sarcastic remark about her “crush” for me as if to insinuate that there was never really a crush to begin with, completely back-stepping her previous comment when she stated she had a crush on me. Well, it was obvious she had a crush on me, but this is why I insisted in the beginning that we just be friends. I wasn’t trying to “court” her, as Rex calls it. Trust me on this, there were other “friends” of mine that I would have “courted” who are better looking than her and have much nicer bodies too. But I never “courted” anyone. And I never have nor ever would court an underage girl, no matter how close her birthday is to 18. Only when you reach 18 would I even consider courting anyone. And even then, I doubt I would because I don’t need to meet a GF online. But even if I were, she would have to be at least18 period. And even then, just friends unless I am in the area and they want to meet. Then we could start talking about courting.
Did I have fond feelings for Jude at the time? Yes! I had very deep feelings for her at that time. Most of it out of sorrow because of her cutting and bad relationship with her father and her threats via email at me of suicide. That was very disturbing, and because of that, I did have strong feelings for her. But even after I revealed myself to her and explained that picture, funny how her crush still didn’t go away for a few more months. And funny she would still stalk me several months later on my shared blog. Maybe she is jealous of my friendship with my friend. Who knows?
And here is a shot of a comment made by some girl called “Alisha-Dear Constant Reader” who seems to be worried about Ira and mine friendship. And Kara sharing the same sentiments.

Not to worry Alisha or Kara, my friend and I are doing just fine with our friendship. In fact, the friendship I have with her is the one I thought I would have with Jude. However, unlike Jude, my friend doesn’t have daddy issues, or cutting issues, nor does she go around sleeping with guys twice her age. She is very stable in her life for the most part, and is far from being a basket-case. Simply put, my friend isn’t a psychotic bully with bully friends.

Then in this next shot, we have Archer, who likes to bully 13 year old girls. He is talking like he knows something when in truth, as you’ll see by his remark, he knows nothing. Like the rest of the bullies, he is as clueless as clueless can be. He thinks I complained about a bad or negative review. And that simply wasn’t the case. Check it out.

Then there is this comment by Jude, actually admitting she refused to review my book. But Jude, you’re wrong, I didn’t post “The List” because you backed out of your promise like a 12 year old kid, nor did I post it because your friends backed out too – I posted it because you “stalked” me on my own blog and you manipulated a 17 year old girl to do it. You used my friend to try and get to me. That was your mistake! Your choice! And your own doing! That was the action you did which propelled me to post “The List”. The fact that you and your friends “stole” from me is just that, a fact, and even if I didn’t want a reason other than that, I have every right in the world to let other authors know about what happened to me. And you manipulated my friend to get to me just like you manipulated an email which you and I both know was taken out of context. I called your bluff on a threat of suicide just because I told you I was going to block you from emailing me because I had enough of your crazy ways.

And in this next shot, we have Sandra mentioning about this “alleged” crush that Jude had for me. We already seen the shot in which Jude came clean on that then later, mentioned it sarcastically and now, so does Sandra. Well Sandra, I think we can put that little lie to rest, Jude did have a crush on me. Her own words, not mine. And just like Alicia Silverstone in the movie, “The Crush”, she stalked me religiously. That’s what crushes makes people do, makes them crazy. Or at least, brings it out. Jude was crazy from her descriptions to me about her childhood. If they were even true at all. I know now how Jude likes to play the “sympathy whore”.

Through it all, we see on the day of my attack, how these people spread their gossip, lies and hate all around. How they worked together with these lies to get me banned because, and this is important, they (being the members of the hate group “Badly Behaving Authors” on goodreads and Amazon Forum Boards) are the judges, jury and executioners of authors that they deem to be “badly behaving”. Who do they think they are? The Justice League?
Anyhow, I think we dispelled a lot of rumors and exposed some lies that Jude and her bully friends spread around like applesauce. 
I’m Carroll Bryant …. And this is The Looking Glass.
Things we learned today:
* Jude did indeed show off some emails that I supposedly written to her
* These emails did cause quite a stir and resulted in my being attacked
* Those emails were taken out of context (just as Jude planned)
* Jude is friends with the bullies
* Jude admits she “had” a crush on me
* Jude later back-tracked and sarcastically mentioned “she had a crush on me”
* Sandra must have missed Jude’s confession about the crush because she “sarcastically” mentions it as well
* Archer thinks it’s about me complaining about negative reviews (which is wrong)
* Alisha and Kara are concerned about my friend
* My friend and I have a great and wonderful friendship
* My friend is not a psychotic nut with issues
* My friend isn’t a stalker
* My friend doesn’t have any friends who are bullies
* Jude could be jealous of mine and my friends friendship
* The bullies still say a lot but have nothing to show that supports their claims

* The Rex Files is WRONG! And a laughing stock of a blog

Rex Jameson is a LIAR and a BULLY
