Let's start with the most idiotic of the bunch Belle (bellesbookshelf) who so ignorantly says:
"The author has based a character on a teenage girl he is obsessed with. He has used her real name without her permission. If that wasn't bad enough, the quotes in the spoiler tag below show how absolutely disgusting the whole thing is. The only other notable thing is how poor the writing is; the author doesn't even seem to know the meaning of some of the words he uses. It would be funny if it wasn't so disturbing. This book makes me sick."
First of all "Belle" - I did not base a character on a teenage girl. The story idea was originally concieved in the year 2010. Long before I ever became a member of Goodreads. (Plus, my character in the book is of a much slimmer build than the person you are thinking of) The original idea was to have the story take place in Paris, France. However, by the time I decided to write it, my friend at THAT time, Jude, suggested to me to have it take place in Mexico since I was concerned about how well I could translate the French language. She offered to help me with the translation of Spanish and that I wouldn't have to rely on an online translation site. I also explained I already had the character names put together and wanted to get writing on it and didn't think I had the time to go back and search out new character names for it. She then suggested that I could use her names for the female character (Jude, Judi, and Elsa) Plus, I don't need her permission to name my characters Jude, Judi or Elsa. Names are public domain. That is like saying that if a writer uses the name Belle in a book that they are all talking about you. They're not. It's just a name. Not to mention, the book is FICTION you simpleton.
In short, she pretty much convinced me to roll with the story taking place in Mexico. She also promised to translate it for me when I was finished. (Which she also backed out of when she mysteriously ended our public friendship. (But remaining friends outside of the public eye until I eventually grew weary of that.) After which she left a post on my blog telling me to "F" off when I blocked her from being able to email me. She also asked me to "leave her alone" - duh! Which was why I blocked her in the first place.
I considered rewriting it back to Paris, France but it just would have taken a lot of my time and I had so much going on at that moment that I just left it as is.
As for the character, she is nothing like your chubby friend. The character in the book was already created long before I ever met your friend. So stop flattering her by comparing the hot chick in the story to the likes of her. And stop flattering yourself in thinking you know anything about me and my writing because you don't. And stop flattering yourself that you know about my personal life, because you don't. And as for the words I use in the book, I know what they mean. You might just be upset because you don't know how to pronounce them.
And finally, for a book to make you sick, you would first have to read it. The truth is, you are a bully and have a lot of hate in your heart - and a lot of hate towards me based on the lies your friend told you about me. Instead of just letting it go and telling your friend that her relationships are her problems, you decide to jump in and bully me on her behalf along with the rest of your bully friends. Proving even more that you are an idiot.
Now, let's take a look at what Ade (superducky) has to say about it:
"Ick. I read a passage out of the book and it was... Disturbing. Really, it's weird enough that he based the book off of a teen girl, but then the wanna-be sex scene just puts it over the top. That and some of it is phrased kind of awkwardly. Either way, the author is super sketchy, and I definitely will not be reading this."
You read a passage? And from that, you deem the book "Disturbing?" - What disturbs me is that stupid monkeys like you and your bully friends try to pass yourselves off as people who can read. And again, like your fellow bully friends, the book was not based on a teenaged girl. But if your friend wants to kid herself into believing that it is based on her then let her continue to live in her fantasy world. (You may continue to live there with her) And really, Ade, let's be serious here, the only reason you won't be reading the book is because, like Belle, you can't understand the many "big people" words I use in it. None of you.
Now let's take a look at what Yal Book Brief has to say as I always enjoy reading the words of the intelligently challenged.
"This is disgusting. The author has harassed a reviewer for months and then decides to use her name and likeness in a book without her permission. Portraying her in a false light. Mr. Bryant have you ever heard of this: ..."
And then she leaves a link to this website: FAQ
Again, the character in my book is not based on anyone alive or dead. So this legal mumbo-jumbo has nothing to do with me or my book. If your friend thinks that the character is based on her then she has my blessings in any attempt to sue me. In fact, I would look forward to it. But she won't. And do you want to know why she won't? Because the character in the book is not based on her. That's why. So maybe you should stop trying to practice law from the couch with your hate and ignorance.
Also, I never harrassed anybody at any time. If anything, she harrasses and stalks me. She wanted to maintain a friendship behind everybody's back. I agreed to it until I finally grew weary of it and her head games. This is when I blocked her from my email. She got angry and then made friends with my co-blogger and best friend and asked my friend to not mention a word of their new found friendship to me. Then she "sweet talked" my friend into letting her onto one of our shared blogs so she could leave a link to her blogs - just to rub it it on me. (Please read about it here THE EMAILS )
Your friend has been stalking me, not the other way around. Your friend continues to stalk me as on another website, a person by the name of "Janet" made some comments behind me. We got into a discussion and this "Janet" person said something about one of my sisters that only your friend Jude would know. Thus, proving that it was your friend Jude trolling the web and she continues to follow everything I do. And so it would appear do the rest of her bully friends like yourself.
So no, I did not use "her" name. Names are public domain. (As I explained earlier) and no, it was not without her permission. It was in fact her suggestion to me to use those names. (As I also stated earlier) And no, I do not portray her in a false light. If anything, if said character was a portrayal of her (which it isn't) it would be a good portrayal because the character in the book is really hot, really sexy, and not chubby. So like the rest of your bully friends, perhaps you can pull your head from out of your .... never mind, I know you people are too stupid and hateful for that. And to answer your final question, yes, I have heard of that. Apparently, you haven't though. That and the fact you refuse to educate yourself properly on my personal life. (Funny how you people claim I go chasing after teenage girls yet, your "friend" seems to be the only one you claim I have chased.) Just a little side note here, when you only have a "singular" as evidence, you might want to cut out the "plural" aspects of your claims. Talk about defamation and liable. (Ever hear of that dipweed?)
And of course, the rest of the bullies posted on my review page section and is filled with the usual crap as the bullies have to make their rounds. Sophia and Zoey Nightshade, Chubby Kara and the rest. Check it out for a good laugh.
Lastly, I want to state that this book is FICTION! You bullies and your bully friend Jude need to get over yourselves. She is the only one who is obesessed, stalking and doing all of the harrassing. Her and all of you who are her bully friends. Your adolescent posts on my review page is PROOF of that. And it further illustrates the need for the website STGRB. And it is further proof that Goodreads, Otis Chandler and Patrick Brown foster, condone, and endorse this kind of bully behavior.
Your honor ... I rest my case.
I have been getting some emails concerning this mysterious "Janet" person who showed up This Website.
I had already explained why I felt it was who I think it is. Someone suggested that perhaps Jude may have told people about it and this "Janet" could be somebody else. I agree. However, other comments she made also leads me to believe it is Jude. (You can click up on the green "This Website" above and read the post and all of the comments.
One comment in particular you should focus on is this comment I am posting below that "Janet" made. It clearly specifies what "Janet" is up to. She confesses to having contacted the group "Vasey" of which I am in the process of doing an interview with to "Rat" me out as to who and what I am. As anybody knows, the only place I ever spoken about the band was here on my blog so "Janet" mor eor less has admitted to "stalking" me on my blog then reading about my plans to interview Vasey and she took it upon herself to "contact" them in an attempt to twart my interview.
As anybody would know, this is a classic case of "Cyber Stalking" and "Cyber Bullying" - to the likes which is clearly illegal. All of my information and screen shots of the comment has benn turned over to The Proper Authorities. As were all of my "screen shots" proving the acts of "cyber crimes" against me and others. I am not the only one who is providing evidence to the authorities. There are many of us who are gathering up information and evidence and handing it over.
Maybe "Janet" is Jude, maybe she isn't, one thing is for sure though, I wouldn't want to be in her shoes right about now. Once she reads this, her comments implicating her might be deleted by the website's creator. It doesn't matter. I already know for a fact that the authorities have everything they need to continue looking into that and other posts on other sites. If it indeed it does turn out to be Jude, then she can kiss her American Citizenship goodbye if that was something in her future plans. In fact, I would be surprised if she would even be allowed to cross the border to visit.
I will allow the wheels of justice to turn at their own pace. As I implied in my last journal post The Ying and The Yang, I am done with this mess. As I also stated, there are others gathering evidence and my input is no longer needed. Below is a cropped version of what "Janet" said and can be found and read in its entirety by clicking the green link up above "This Website". (Provided of course, it hasn't alreayd been deleted - which it more than likely will once "Janet" finds out about this update.)
And if this does turn out in the end to be Jude, then it would be proof positve of everything I have been saying that it is SHE who is stalking and harrassing me. But we'll wait and see what the arms of justice decides in due time.
Well, Ade writes on Goodreads: "Edit: I'm putting this edit at the top because I feel that it's pretty important. On his blog, the author said this in response to my review: "What disturbs me is a stupid monkey like you trying to pass yourself off as someone who can read." Does that sound racist to you? Because it sounds very racist to me. He also called another reviewer fat, isn't that just lovely?"
My response: First of all, Ade, I wasn't responding to your "review" because you didn't leave a "review". To give a review of a book, you first would have to read the book. You didn't. Secondly, a review about a book is suppose to be about a book, not the author. (SMH) and (RME) and (LOL) And finally, of course you think I am racist. All racists think everybody else is racist and not themselves. (Just saying)
If intelligence was sunlight, you would be an eclipse.
Face it Ade, you're a bully. Not because I think so or say so, but because your actions show it and prove it.
As for calling your friend fat or chubby, I only said that to defend your baseless accusations that I took the likeness of your friend and put her in my book. I was distinguishing the difference between the character in the book and your friend. Case in point, this picture of your friend clearly shows that yes indeed she is chubby and her likeness is in no way taken to resemble the character in my book.
