The Goodreads Gang: Bullies In Action

In this day and age when everybody wants proof of this and proof of that, I have uncovered two amazing wevsites/blogs that have had my back right from the start of all of this bullying being applied to me by what I like to call, The Goodreads gang.

Proof positve of hypocrissy in action and REAL evidence of who the REAL bullies are in the saga of my situation and ultimate banning from Goodreads.

Also, proof that Goodreads manager, Patrick Brown, really does endorse this group of bullies and their vile tactics against me. What is amazing to me, these two sites seem to know exactly who to look at and who the main players are in this most unfortunate situation that I find myself in. Leading me to believe that for these people, I was not their first rodeo. (In other words, they must have had done this before to other authors.) I mean, how else would they know where to find so much information and know who to watch?

These two websites are: STGR and Goodreads Follies. To these two sites I say, thanks for having my back and for helping me to bring out my side of the story and presenting evidence / proof of what is really going on.

Please check out these links to see the truth. Thank you guys for sticking with me on this. I have a professional team behind me. Now, here are the links. Enjoy! LOL (Take that, Goodreads Gang)

  2. I have walked away. These people sent me the links of their story. They put all of this together without me. They have been following this right from the get go. I had no idea until this morning. They went to so much trouble to expose the truth, the least I could do was post their links. As for me? I am back to blogging as usual. But am I going to go in search of evidence? No. Am I going to go and read all of these people'a posts as they talk about me? No? But it feels good to know that I have some real professional "go-getters" watching my back.

  3. So let's be honest. You suck. And you're whining because you got a shitty review. And now you will get even more shitty reviews because you are reaching Nickolaus Pacione levels of delusion.

    You're this month's flavor. Next month a new delusional douche bag will come and you'll be forgotten.

    1. No, I am not "whinning" as you put it because I got a shitty review. I am "whinning", as you put it, because I got NO review or INTERVIEW after I was approached by bloggers who offered me these things in exchange for a FREE copy of my book(s) on the basis that I would recieve those thigs and then they broke their promise after I gave them their FREE read.

      I did get a somewhat bad review on my first book, Children Of The Flower Power by my first ever reviewer, but it was based on bad grammer. As it turned out, I had inadvertantly published my "un-edited" version by mistake and her review brought that to my attention. I was so grateful, I gave her a free copy of my second book. (Her review is still there.)

      I have no problem with a bad review. In fact, I learn more from a bad review than a good one. A bad one, if honest, tells me as a writer what I need to do to improve. Not to mention the fact that I am not writing for the money. I don't need it. I enjoy writing songs more. And also, I can't recall one time when I ever chased after a reviewer. I only accepted offers from anyone who asked me if I wanted to be reviewed. The cold hard fact is, it doesn't matter to me.

      But thanks for your ignorant comment, Marlowe. It only goes to show what you (and all of your bully friends) don't know.

    2. As for next months delusional douche bag, let me guess, your gang of thugs are working up another plan to do this to another unsuspecting author?

      At least by being forgotten, you would have had to been known. At least I was a "flavor of the week" ... You have never even been that much yet in the abyss that is your life.

  4. Autumn, I don't know why you keep posting that silly comment three times now in what, a half hour? Talk about being stalked. Your comment makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever. But alas, now when you try to post it, it will go into the spam folder and I won't confuse it with the other comments. But keep trying, because when the time is right, I will post all of them to show how many times you tried to post it. Which means everyone will see how pathetic you are in not only the comment itself, but how many times you came to my blog to post it. Even when you know I am not going to allow that dribbling nonsense.

    It is nothing but incoherent jibber-jabber.

  5. It's funny to me how I am called a stalker. These people who claim that I am a stalker have posted God knows what on their websites, blogs, Twitter, facebook, Flkr, Tmblr, Linkedin, you name it. Hundreds of them, maybe thousands. And I have yet to go and make any kind of comment in response. Mostly because, I don't really care what they say, excpet to maybe get a laugh or two when I need it.

    And then there is me. Here at my blog, my personal space, and these people constantly coming here and posting all the dang time and on Love Hate Poetry. LOL So I thought it would be nice if I posted the definition of stalking for everyone, so we can better grasp what is going on here.

    1. The proof is all over my blog and you won't find one comment from me anywhere on their blogs. Well, maybe one. Maybe. (I think I left one for somebody on Sunday night, but that was it.)

  6. No, you won't post on those sites yourself. You send teenage girls to do it for you.

  7. Have you finished your research into A Cupcake and a Latte? Seems you are able to walk away and yet unable to issue the apology due to her!

    1. Who has the time? I have got so much going on right now. So many ANON's and so little time. I am too busy right now reading all of these amazing stories about me all over the internet that my friends screen-shoot and send to me.

      Just as soon as I can find some time, I wouldlove to go back in and check that out.

    4. OMFG! Who *are* you people??? I may not have been around enough lately, but I know I was here before all of YOU. Most of you are just foul-mouthed, out of control, and have NOTHING IF VALUE TO CONTRIBUTE. Been out of your cages long?

    1. Another satisfied customer. LOL As for my books, I sold 957 last week thanks to you and your buddies. So obviously, I hope you keep it going. If what you guys are doing means I sell books, then great. That is a happy bonus.

      You are tough hiding behind ANON, aren't you? LOL

    2. Anon;

      I know that you're angry because I am too. Obviously this entire situation is not ideal and I do think Carroll is the one in the wrong in this situation. If he hadn't threatened to post a list because (he claims) he was trying to get back at some young girl he was dating, then people wouldn't have gotten into this in the first place.

      He did not show adult or professional behavior, but calling him a "hippy faggot" is way out of line. My best friend is gay and that sort of talk really is not necessary.

      BTW, Carroll, I am not on your side. I don't believe in name calling, but I still believe you were in the wrong.

    3. I was not trying to get back at anyone. I never claimed that. In the beginning, this list was not even going to include her. I only added her to the list because she got all fo you fired up and sent you people after me. This is where all of you lose your credibility.

      You think you know what this is all about, but the truth is, you don't know. And all you people are about is censorship. You bloggers want the right to talk about authors (The Lucy Story) but then when it comes to an author shariing his ordeal with bloggers, you try to say it is over some girl or aboyt a bad review and you're wrong, wrong, wrong. But you can say that to ignorant people because they can't get past their own hate.

  10. I have been keeping up with this quietly ever since it started last Friday. Here is what I see: All of these people posting things all over the internet about Carroll Bryant and now, Ira. All I see Carroll and Ira doing is posting about what these other people are posting about them. It seems to me that if you people would simply leave Carroll and Ira alone, and stop posting about them, then Carroll and Ira would have nothing to post about you guys. I also have to say that by you people coming to both of their blogs, you are instigating a fight. What you people are doing is in fact the definition of stalking, and perhaps bullying, that Carroll so warmly provided in his comment up top. That is what I see.

  11. That's what we've been trying to say for like ages!
    Carroll didn't start this. Those other people did. And even when he repetedly asked them to stop, they continued. So we continue. It's a circle. They keep the fight up. We keep fighting back. They stop? We stop too.
    We don't want this. But it seems they do..

  12. Carroll, I honestly have no idea of what to say. I have never seen anything like this before, and it saddens me. I don't understand any of it and I am sorry to see so much cruelty among authors and reviewers who are supposed to be professionals. This past week I made the decision to start doing more promoting on Goodreads, but after all of this, I think I'm done and will no longer be posting anything there. Any site that lets so much much unprofessional garbage play out, allowing the language and so much spitefulness linger without any moderation, is not a place I want to be. So, Carroll, I'm sorry for the way things have gone and I know, as my relatives used to say, it will all come out in the wash. Take care:-)

    1. Thanks for that last comment Jewel. I did not post it in here because I didn't want these people to see that link. But I will look into that. :D

  13. Take care,Jewel. I'm sorry that you, and so many others, had to be exposed to this kind of brutality. As I have stated to STGR and Goodreads Follies, and soon, two more websites that are interested in covering this cruelty towards me, the one thing I am grateful for is that this is hapening to me and not to an author who relies on their royalties to feed their family.

    On the other hand, their attempts to hurt my book sales has backfired. In fact, it has (and is) doing the complete opposite. There are so many people outside of Goodreads and this situation who read, and these people who are bullying me are in the one percentile of the reading population.

    Be that as it may, I hope you pop in to say hello from time to time. But you, nor anybody, should ever give up your dreams of writing, and cetainly never let people like these take those dreams away from you.

    All my best to you, Jewel.

  14. I had too many AIDS carriers one star my books without reading them and endorse the books written by faggots. I was thrown off goodreads because my fat cunt of an ex-fiancee was stirring up hardcore internet drama. I had some prick take over my goodreads page and pass me off as a fag author who wrote abook called Fifty Shades Of Gay. I get angry at the faggots willing to take a ripe shit on my publications without reading them. Especially the filthy slut Mary Sangiovanni saying I am in a hell of my own making saying I suck as an author when I sold my work to magazines.

  15. But Nicky, you're insane. You're paranoid and delusional. You think you're important and you're not. And you're extremely obsessed with violent sex/rape, gay sex, anal, bestiality, and necrophilia. There is nothing in your post that, I imagine, would make Carroll want to associate with you.
