SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Ellora's Cave Sues Dear Author and Jane for blog post

Reblogged from Tea, Rain, Book:

I never read a single EC book.


There is no way in Hades I will ever read a single EC book now.


Authors that are siding with EC will be put on my do-not-buy-list. Some authors not with EC are happy that Jane/Dear Author is being sued due to having their books rated less than 5 stars/no fan girl squeeeingg.


Authors who are having major troubles with EC have just had their worst fears confirmed. I am keeping them in my thoughts, as they may be next (one of the items EC wants Jane to reveal is the names of the authors who commented on the blog post - Jane wanted honest answers and experiences, so she let the authors comment anonymously).


Jane will fight this; if she sets up a donation site I will post it and donate what I can afford. The blog post that started this: http://dearauthor.com/ebooks/the-curious-case-of-elloras-cave/


Fuck this shit - Jane wrote her blog post using journalistic integrity and now the rats are running scared.





This is horrible, reprehensible behavior.  Shame on them!
