ò Kathleen Hale Is a Crazy Stalker » Download by í Kathleen Hale Are you fucking kidding me others have linked and documented all the shit this author did and the fact that this is being published is a joke.
Hell No I rarely blog any, but Kathleen Hale s decision to stalk a reviewer is forever burned into my brain It happened just as I started blogging and I don t think I ll ever forget how her actions silenced a funny, beloved, snarky blogger.
Criminal behavior shouldn t be rewarded with a book deal.
Remember HALENO She stalked a blogger here on GRs for a 1 star review of her book, and showed up at the blogger reviewer s house to confront her, and bragged about the stalking NEVER FORGET Kathleen Hale hasn t learned anything This interview with enrage readers and authors alike She ignores that fact she stalked a reviewer and still blames that reviewer Well I finally found the book that earns the second spot on my Not if you fucking paid me shelf Seriously this woman stalks a reviewer all the way to her house and now she s trying to make money out of it Fuck this book and fuck the publisher who is putting it out in the world Well, If I were the author I would be so happy for the following reasons This book made history as GR s lowest rated bookToo many profiles who gave this 1 star and that means many people to stalk and thus many future book to write People are making shelves exclusively for this book Take mine for example I called it Thank U, Next and it is an exclusive shelf.
I guess we can all say congratulations
From the synopsisIn these six extraordinary essays, Hale proves herself to be an exhilarating new voice whose commentaries on womanhood, obsession, and the Internet are both hilarious and profound There is absolutely NOTHING hilarious nor profound about this author trying to monetize the very real and VERY SCARY fact that she stalked a reviewer online and then SHOWED UP AT THE REVIEWER S HOME simply because they gave her book a one star review Shame on the author And SHAME ON THE PUBLISHER This is setting a disgusting precedent As a reviewer, and simply as a human being, to say I m appalled is a severe understatement For a fuller picture, below are links to some articles regarding the incident.
Words cannot describe my utter fury Blythe deserves better.
Also, I thought it was illegal in America to profit off a crime Hale was never taken to court, but stalking is still a crime.
UPDATE 6 7 19 Someone was kind enough to make a Twitter thread of photos capturing many pages of this book, which I read from there I ain t spending money on this I m not sure if I read the entire thing, but I did read a complete story of the situation involved Kathleen literally stalking a reviewer who gave her book one star And.
it s a fuckin trip I do, however, want to mention that Kathleen cites that she experienced a mental breakdown from this whole ordeal, which I am genuinely sorry happened to her.
BUT, her side of the story very much paints her to be a victim People she mentioned have come forward saying she fabricated the story in her favor and used certain language to make them look much worse than they really were I believe that most
Profiting off of the trama you put a goodreads reviewer through because she rated your terrible book low nope nope how is this getting published FUCK NO.
