How To Write Children's Books


By EelKat Wendy C Allen

SAY NO TO CYBER BULLIES!
END DISCRIMINATION AGAINST AUTISM!

UPDATE: February 20, 2015

I'm sorry. The original content for this page, has been removed.

I have removed all 1,371 of my How-To Articles For Writers in protest to a cyber bully attack.

I have Autism and write Autistic main characters and because of this, a small group of very elitists authors in their own words  said:

"let's dry up her (book) sales"

"retards should not be allowed to write"

"we need to kill her career"

"Let's destroy her career"

"too stupid to live"

"the only good retard is a dead retard"

'the world would be a better place if you just dropped dead"

"people like her need to be shot in the head"

"justified in boycotting retarded books about retarded characters written by retards"

KEEP READING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED:

(NOTE: It's long - it'll take about 8 hours to read.)

(UPDATE: February 28, 2015: This page now includes an updated re-write of my 2007 Squidoo article "On Being An Adult with Autism")

FAQS About This Situation:

QUESTION: Will you be reposting your articles for authors?

ANSWER: Yes. They will go back online starting around August 2015...BUT...they will no longer be free access, you will have to pay money if you want to read them.


QUESTION: Why did you take your content down?

ANSWER: Short answer is there are people in the world who are mean, cruel, cold-hearted, and take great pleasure in hurting others. I don't like being pushed around by bullies.

Slightly longer short answer is that a small group of authors, after using my articles to jump start their writing careers, decided to make an active attempt to boycott me and my books.

In their own words they said:

"let's dry up her (book) sales"

"retards should not be allowed to write"

"we need to kill her career"

"Let's destroy her career"

"too stupid to live"

"the only good retard is a dead retard"

"the world would be a better place if you just dropped dead"

"people like her need to be shot in the head"

"justified in boycotting retarded books about retarded characters written by retards"

This happened at the same time my account had been hacked. How did he/she access my account? Well, I do know the answer to that. Once I realized that my Kboards account, my Twitter account, and my WordPress blog had all 3 been hacked and all sorts of weird posts were being made on all 3 of them. What did the 3 accounts have in common? They all had the same log-in password, which in each case was a very short and easy to guess password, as all 3 of these accounts were made nearly a decade ago with simple 4 letter passwords were all that was needed to be "secure". Yes, that was very stupid of me. I should have changed the passwords and made them stronger, I never did, because...who hacks someone's forum account? You don't think you need a strong password in a place like Kboards, I means, crazy enough to hack an author's forum account?

When I first realized my account had been hacked, I corrected a few dozen of the posts on the Kboards back to their original state and intended to do this with all the hacked posts, but the next day all the corrected posts had been rehacked, and a very snark "Haha! You can't stop me!" message had been added to the forum signature.

That was when I realized the hacker was hacking still and it had not been a 1-time hack. I corrected some more posts, and then watched to see what happened and a few hours later, my signature was changed again, to yet another snarky posts, one which said something about buying 2 new Rolls Royces just to spite other authors. (And while the Rolls Royce is my favorite car and this is a widely known fact, I do not own one.)

A few days later, my Twitter feed suddenly got bombarded with posting dozens and dozens of book promos for Kboards member DW's newest book.

I realized at that post that it was more then just my Kboards account that had been hacked.

And for the record, I NEVER promote another author's book unless I have first read said book, and you will NEVER see me post the link more then once.  

I contacted DW about this and h had no knowledge of why his books were being blasted at a rate of dozens of spam posts an hour via my Twitter account.

I was trying to figure it out when I realized: "OMG! My Twitter account uses the same password as my Kboards account!"

I changed the password on my Twitter account and immediately the bombardment of spam links to other authors' books stopped posting.

I then changed my password on Kboards and the posts stopped being changed. At that point I set out to correcting the posts back to their original form, but then, while I was doing that I got side swiped by JDP/EA's and LG's raging fury, (which in all likelihood was the hacker, retaliating from losing access to my account) and their posts stirring up several other members to join in the herd mentality attack with them, I just said, I really don't want to deal with this.

It's too stressful, I've got too much going on in my life, my health was really bad just then, I was going in for surgery the following week, I just had too many IMPORTANT issues to deal with, I didn't want to have to try to juggle some stupid petty forum war with a bunch of very unprofessional authors who had nothing better to do then fight on a forum.

I mean I they want to act like stupid, childish, unprofessional, spoilt brats, tossing labels and name calling around on a forum, then fine, go ahead, I don't care. It's their own career they are destroying. No good ever comes from attack other people on a forum. Every author who jumps in on something like that is just going to get their career dragged down by it. 

What gets me really mad about all of this, is I just walked out. I never said a word. I never commented, never posted a single forum posts, never said anything on my blog, never said anything on Twitter or FaceBook. Nothing No where. I just walked away. And I was in and out of the hospital from October to February, so I wasn't online that whole time, and I kind of forgot about the Kboards incident.

Well, here it is 6 months later (March 2015) and I'm just getting back online again, and I come to find out that, good god, even though I wasn't even online and I had never once responded to a single thing these people said or did, they were STILL attacking me and dragging my name through the mud and screaming "let's dry up her sales" "we need to destroy her career", and well, that's why 7 months after this started, I've decided enough is enough, it's high time I put my foot down and make a public statement about this.

These people are really getting out of hand. They are just absolutely out of control and I for one and sick and tired of the nasty, filthy, sick-minded rumors, lies, and gossip these people are spreading about me.

I mean the stuff that these people are saying about me, come with a MINIMUM 40 years in prison sentence. The stuff they are saying is VERY serious.  They are falsely accusing me of having done things that I'm not even physically capable of doing. 

The stuff they are saying about me - these are beyond minor little things: they are calling me a pedophile - a crime that has a 40 year prison sentence. They are small minded people who have resorted to making up lies about my sex life, in what they themselves term an attempted to "dry up her sales and kill her career"

This has gone beyond a "normal" little forum war.

Their attacks left the internet and went offline. They did $15,000 of damage to my farm, destroyed my crops, destroyed our source of drinking water, and I ended up in the hospital in critical condition. 

I had to be hospitalized in critical condition on November 14, 2014. That was a Tuesday and the doctors, didn't expect me to make it to the end of the week.

I had a heart attack and went into septic shock.. 

My blood pressure was 70/60 and my heart rate 122.

Doctors freaked out because a red stripe showed up on my left arm, from my shoulder to my hand, and the veins on my neck and chest, turned purple and my chest turned blue.

I'm not sure what that meant, I don't know medical stuff, but they said I almost died.

I was still touch and go until December 27, 2014. And it's now February and I'm still not well enough to drive.

Two authors died in the forum war that is going on, on KBoards already.

They almost made it three.

It bothers me a lot when people die. Suicide bothers me a lot.

I'm the survivor of a mass murder-suicide that happened when I was 14. I've seen people die from suicide and murder and I can't get it out of my head. It's why I write about murder and suicide in all of my stories. Because I have Autism, I forget nothing and I can't get what happened out of my head.

So when members of the Kboards forum started committing suicide over what the forum trolls were doing to them, it bothered me a lot, that no one cared enough to stand up to these trolls.

It bothered me a lot that the bullies didn't care that 2 authors died from their bullying and they just moved on to other authors, as the authors they were bullying died.

I'm sorry, but my health is not well enough for me to to try to keep track of anything extra any more. I can't take the risk of another PTSD attack like that. I barely lived through that one. Doctors say I won't make it through another.

That's why I deleted all of my accounts, all my posts, all my articles, everywhere, not just KBoards.

I love talking with my readers.

I love helping other writers.

But I'm not physically strong enough to do that in the midsts of others being mean and vindictive. It is a matter of life and death now, and as suicidal as I have been in the past, this whole event, this almost dying, did make me realize I don't really want to die, I just want the pain to stop. Beside, I have a 130 part serial to finish. In spite of the people who hate the series, I've got quite a few fans who are eagerly awaiting more of it. I can't very well write it if I'm dead.

My How-To Articles for writers, will never made freely available again. From now on, if you want them, you're gonna have to buy them. 


QUESTION: Is it true that the author(s) behind this made an attempt to get your books removed from Amazon?

ANSWER: Yes. See the next question for full details:

Why My Quaraun Books Vanished Off
The Amazon Website For 9 Days in March 2015

QUESTION: I can't find your Quaraun books on Amazon. I tried searching for them but they are not coming up. They were there yesterday and now they are gone. How do I find these books on Amazon?

ANSWER: Yes, I know. Amazon has temporarily (hopefully) removed them from public access, stuffed them in the Erotica section and slapped the "adult filter" over them so that they no longer come up for sale to the general public, while complaints about, so called "pedophile Erotica" are being reviewed. 

Someone complained about the Quaraun series. Don't know who or why, (although I do know who it was who has been running all over the internet falsely accusing my books of being what she termed "pedophile Erotica") but yes, the Quaraun series is not going to come up in search results, because the "ADULT" tag has been slapped onto it.

This is actually an interesting phenomena, you see, this the the first time I've ever heard of a NON-EROTICA book, being bitch slapped by Amazon.

What happens is, Amazon deams some books to have cover art that is "too risque" to be viewed by the general public, so they put a filter known as "the ADULT tag" on the book, so that no one under 18 can accidentally find it and look at it's naughty cover art.

Yes, I did say cover art.

Let's look at that naughty cover art, shall we?

Yeah... we got a naked Unicorn, and naked horse, and a naked statue in a graveyard.

Yep, I'm as puzzled as you are.

Amazon put the "Adult" tag on a non Erotica book? I have never seen that happen before. This is new. 

People who have actually read my books, know I don't write Erotica. And yet the adult filter is only placed on Erotica books, so something is screwy here.

Quaraun got bitch slapped by Amazon. (March 5, 2015) Every volume. They just put the “adult” tag on the whole series.

I have never seen a non-Erotica book get the adult tag before.

I know it’s not the covers, because there’s unicorns and horses on the covers. Cartoon horses at that.

And it’s not the keywords because the keywords are “Elf, fairies, phooka, unicorn, wizardry”

That means someone complained. Someone specifically contacted Amazon and complained about the books. Uhm...okay...why? 

Interesting it happened right after 1 author created 52 fake Amazon accounts, gave each volume 52 fake 1 stars, and then Amazon deleted all her accounts for ToS violation.

*Hi Kendra*

So, the members of KBoards are STILL lashing out I see.  Is this really the type of petty thing these people have resorted to? I mean, really? Are they really that childish?

*shakes head*

7 months now. They've been pulling these sick twisted little stunts like this for 7 months now. (Kendra has been pulling them for 9 years now. I expect this sort of brainless behavior from her.) The sad part is, is that I have no clue why they are so hung up on me an my books. God! What in the hell did I write in these books that they hate them so much? I don't get it? Don't these people have anything better to do? Are their lives really that empty and meaningless that they have nothing more important to do with their time?

7 freaking months? Don’t you guys ever get tired of bothering me? What is your frigging problem? Good God, this is stalking you know. Look up the definition of stalking. You Kboards creeps are stalking me and I'm sick of it. Will you just get out of my life and leave me alone? Some people just don't have a life.

I guess I’ll go update my website now. I have thoughts and opinions on this, the newest attack on my books, by some very annoying authors who apparently have unicorn horns rammed up their asses, must go write about this. 

Yes, you know I’m going to write Unicorn killing a character by ramming his horn up their ass. I just have to. That’s all there is to it. You know, I did just write a scene today, with him skewering human heads on his horn… wouldn’t be too hard to alter that scene. :P

For those who don’t know, Quaraun is a gay, transvestite, Autistic Gypsy, and there exist a handful of religious do-goodie “Christian” authors who are self-righteously indignated  over the fact that such a character exists. Some are screaming anti-gay rants, some are screaming anti-Gypsy rants, some are screaming anti-tranny rants, some are screaming anti-retard rants, ad for some unknown reason some are screaming anti-Erotica rants (about a book that isn't even Erotica to begin with!) Each of them has a complaint, some multiple complaints. They are trying to stage a boycott of my books, which would funny if it wasn’t so danged annoying.

Most of the offenders stopped when confronted with this, some required cease and desist orders to get them to stop, the three most persistent offenders, who continue to this day to harass me, have now been added to my blacklist.

But, anyways, yes, that does mean the books are no longer showing up in search results unless you search specifically for the title itself now. The series no longer shows up in general search results.

I'll have to ask Amazon what the reason was for the tag being added, because as far as I know it's only used on Erotica, and this is not Erotica.

But yes, as of March 5, 2015, The Quaraun books are all moved into Erotica and had the adult filter put on them. They are no longer available by general search on Amazon and can ONLY be accessed via clicking a direct link from an outside site linking directly to the sales page. (That's what the "adult filter" does. You can search for Erotica books on amazon, but an "adult filtered" Erotica book is one that has been de-listed from the Amazon website and can only be found via direct-link access.) Essentially what the "adult filter" does is kill sales 100%, because once the adult filter is placed on your book, the only way for someone to buy it is if the author themselves gives the link to the sales page to the customer.

The adult filter is a really, really, really, really, REALLY bad thing to have put on your book, because it means NO ONE has access to buying your book anymore.

Basically your book has been removed from sale to the general public and if you want to buy it, you have to contact the author and ask the author to send you a link to the sale page, so you can buy the book. It is absolutely the worst thing you could have happen to your book.

Needless to say I am very upset that this has happened, because what it means is that basically the Quaraun books are no longer available for sale. You can still buy them, but you have to come directly to my website, find a link to the sale page, and buy them that way. Well, how many people even know to come to my site to look for a link to the sales page? Not many.

It means that the books have gone from 2 to 5 copies sold per title per week, to absolutely ZERO sales at all because they have been removed from the general search index and are no longer available for sale to the general public. You really got to hate an author an awful lot to do something this hate filled, evil, and vindictive to their books. 


UPDATE:  March 10, 2015

I have heard back from Amazon on one of the books. Into the Swamp of Death has been manually reviewed (meaning someone at Amazon's customer service department has physically read the book to determine if the contents are Erotica and if it requires and adult filter or not.)

They have determined that the book is not Erotica and was moved to the Erotica department by mistake and it has now been taken out of the Erotica department, and the adult filter removed.

Amazon is very good about fixing problems. And after 5 days in review, Amazon has informed me that they have reviewed my book, I am correct, it is not Erotica, it doesn't belong in Erotica, they apologized for the inconvenience, and tell me they have moved it to the category they feel is "most appropriate".

I had originally placed it in:  Kindle Store  › Kindle eBooks  › Science Fiction & Fantasy  › Fantasy  › Epic

After someone complained, it was moved without review to:  Books  › Literature & Fiction  › Erotica  › Fantasy

After "careful review" (someone at Amazon actually reading the book) Amazon has decided that Into The Swamp of Death  belongs in:  Books  › Literature & Fiction  › Genre Fiction  › Horror  › Dark Fantasy

Uhm...okay. That's not where I had put it originally, but, yep, I can see how it could be seen as Horror and Dark Fantasy. So, Amazon has officially declared that the Quaraun series IS NOT Erotica and is Dark Fantasy.

I am still waiting to hear back about the other 2, but at least one of them has been put back in general search results.


UPDATE:  March 14, 2015

I have heard back from Amazon - the adult filter is removed from Screaming Unicorn and it's been moved out of Erotica to Dark Fantasy where it belongs. 

So, 2 of the 3 books that had been inaccurately moved to the Erotica section and adult filtered are now fixed - waiting to hear back on 1 more.

I would say this might explain all the questions I've been getting asking if the books were Erotica, except for the fact that they were only moved into Erotica a week ago and I've been getting these questions since last September. Whoever it is telling people these books are Erotica, I wish they'd stop it. Do you have any idea how frustrating it is, having to keep answering the same question over and over again: no, it's not Erotica. No, it's not Erotica. No, it's not Erotica...no, please, stop asking, no, it's not. Sheese. I mean, good God, Where are people finding information telling them that this is Erotica and WHO is saying it? It's really annoying.

Somebody is misrepresenting my books and I really don't like it. By misrepresenting my books, they are misrepresenting me and my reputation and I don't like that.

I can't help but be reminded of the Kboards incident and their threat to:

"let's dry up her (book) sales"

"we need to kill her career"

"Let's destroy her career"

"people like her need to be shot in the head"

If you want to dry up someone's book sale and essentially kill their career on Amazon, there is no better way to do it then to report their books to Amazon, lying to say the books are Erotica, not listed as Erotica, and demand the adult filter be put on them.

A week before the adult filter was put on the Screaming Unicorn, it had a sales rank of 705,143.

After just 9 days with the adult filter on it, it's sales rank is now: 2,061,964.

Yeah, THAT is what the adult filter does to a book.  If you are that mean, that evil, that hateful, you CAN kill an author's career by demanding Amazon put the adult filter on a book, because the adult filter puts a 100% freeze on sales.

If you have steady sales (even low steady sales) and sudden one day your sales stop short and you have 100% sales - then check for the adult filter. Number one cause of sudden 100% drop in sales is the adult filter. It is the most horrible thing you can have happen to your book.

Unfortunately, if an author, pretending to be a reader, requests the adult filter put on a book, Amazon, DOES NOT review the book, and simply puts the adult filter on it. Sadly, there has been a rash of unscrupulous and unprofessional authors, contacting Amazon requesting the adult filter be placed on other authors books, to sink sales rank (the theory is, if the other authors' books sink, their books will rise. It doesn't work that way, but that's the black hat belief behind the practice.) Sadly, you can go to places like the Warrior Forum, and find PDFs for sale which tell you step-by-step how to do this dirty pool tactic. 

Since the WF started selling these How-To guides (in 2013) there has been a rash of THOUSANDS of authors, getting the adult filter inaccurately placed on their books. It's a horrible hate-scam tactic of trying to boost sales to your own books, by attempting to kill sales to other author's books, and it's a hugely popular trend the past 2 years. I've had dozens of my author friends get attacked by other authors this way, but this is the first time it's happened to me.

It is important to note that the adult filter is ONLY placed on Erotica books, and in order to get it put on a non-Erotica book, someone has to contact Amazon and say "AUTHOR NAME is putting their Erotica books in non-Erotica categories" - Amazon then moves the books to Erotica - WITHOUT DOING A MANUAL REVIEW. The end result is, there are quite a few books in the Erotica department, that are not Erotica and often, the author has no clue their books were moved to the Erotica section.

NOTE: in your KDP dashboard, it'll still say the books are listed in the original categories. To find out if your book has been moved to Erotica, try running a Countdown Deal, and look for the note which says: 

"At this time, books that contain mature or erotic content are not eligible for advertising. See advertising guidelines" in the "Run an ad campaign" section. Right beside the Countdown Deal section.

YES! Not only does the adult filter block your books out of showing up in the search results, but it also blocks you out of the marketing dashboard too, and doesn't allow you to run promotions for your book!

Basically if the adult filter gets slapped on your book, you're screwed. You ARE NOT selling another copy of that book again EVER!

The thing is, the adult filter is there for a purpose. It is SUPPOSED to be used, to keep X-rated book cover images from showing up in the search results.

It allows Erotica authors, to publish their books on Amazon, and then created create links to the books on their own personal homepage, allowing Erotica authors to sell books that normally aren't allowed to be sold on Amazon.

The adult filter, prevents the books from showing up on Amazon, while allowing an author to run the own "adult book store" on their own web site. So, the author would be hosting an 18+ porn site, and be able to make money selling their XXX books.

In it's intended purpose the adult filter is a good thing, because it allows X-rated adult books to be sold, allowing authors to make an income. Before the adult filter existed, authors of XXX/adult books had to create their own PDFs or just post the stories online for free. The adult filter now allows them to actually publish those books and earn an income.

Unfortunately, there are people out there who are abusing the system, and are using the adult filter to sink the sales of books that should have the adult filter on them at all. It's a very low brow black hat tactic.

Someone specifically contacting Amazon and making such a request,  is the ONLY way a book can get the adult filter put on it 7 months after publication (Screaming Unicorn was published 7 months prior to the adult filter being placed on it). Normally Amazon would put the filter on the book PRIOR to publication, when they review the book, after the author submits it for publication.

There are 4 authors who, for several months now have been champaigning to as they put it: 

"let's dry up her (book) sales"

"we need to kill her career"

"Let's destroy her career"

In October they tried to stage a mini protest and boycott n a forum for writers. They then did the same thing on 2 other forums for writers (that I know of. I'm not sure if they did it on any other forums or not.)

One of them is fairly local (a 2 hour drive from me) and so staged an offline protest as well, along with vandalism of our family's farm (doing $15,000 in damages to the town, in addition to the damages to our property.)

In December, the same local one, then created 52 fake accounts on Amazon and gave Screaming Unicorn and Fire Mountain EACH 52 one star reviews, and then had a 300+ comment argument with herself in the comments of said reviews. I don't read my book reviews so I was unaware this was happening until, I found out about it via a friend who had read them and asked what in the heck was this author talking about. Before I got a chance to read all of the comments, Amazon deleted all 52 of that author's fake accounts.

This has been going on, since October, with every few weeks, one of these 4 authors (who may actually all be only one person, I don't any of these authors and none of them use a real author photo, all 4 of them are very much "fake" pennames, and two of them use identical phrases, so I actually suspect it's really only 1 author with 4 different pennames) does something like this.

This, having my non-Erotica books, moved to Erotica and adult filtered, is just the latest of this author's attacks on my books. (And, if you know who I'm talking about - you also know that she has been attacking my books, for 9 years now and her most violent attack included to post a request online for someone to kill me, she put my home address in the post and a few days later October 18, 2006, someone put a grease fryer bomb in my house, which left my family homeless and me and my dad both crippled for the rest of our lives.) 

I wish I knew who this woman was and what it was this woman had against me, because it's mind boggling to me, why it is she pulls these stunts. Do you know how maddening it is for someone to spend 9 years doing weird things like this, and you have no idea who they are or why they are doing it? None of this makes any sense to me. *sigh* Oh, well. I suppose eventually she'll have to make it known what exactly it is her motive behind all this is, but until then, there's not much I can do but continue to side step her and clean up the messes she keeps dumping in my lap.

Fortunately, if someone is mean enough to do something like this to one of your books, there is a way to fix it, once you discover it has happened.

Here's what you do. In KDP, go to "Contact Us" and tell Amazon that your Non-Erotica book is being listed as Erotica (no need to mention the adult filter) and ask for a manual review of your book. Explain you did not put the book in the Erotica category, it is not Erotica and could someone please review it to verify that your book is in fact not Erotica and then put it back into the category in which you had originally placed it.

Amazon is very good about fixing problems. And after 9 days in review, Amazon has informed me that they have reviewed my book, I am correct, it is not Erotica, it doesn't belong in Erotica, they apologized for the inconvenience, and tell me they have moved it to the category they feel is "most appropriate".

I had originally placed it in:  Kindle Store  › Kindle eBooks  › Science Fiction & Fantasy  › Fantasy  › Epic

After someone complained, it was moved without review to:  Books  › Literature & Fiction  › Erotica  › Fantasy

After "careful review" (someone at Amazon actually reading the book) Amazon has decided that Screaming Unicorn belongs in:  Books  › Literature & Fiction  › Genre Fiction  › Horror  › Dark Fantasy

Uhm...okay. That's not where I had put it originally, but, yep, I can see how it could be seen as Horror and Dark Fantasy. So, once again, Amazon has officially declared that the Quaraun series IS NOT Erotica and is Dark Fantasy.


UPDATE:  March 14, 2015 (an hour later)

Okay - that was fast - while I was typing that last update - I just got another email from Amazon - okay - so all 3 of the books that got moved to Erotica last week and adult filtered, are back out of Erotica and filter removed - YAY!

Interestingly while Amazon declared Screaming Unicorn and Swamp of Death as Dark Fantasy, they have put Vampire Leprechaun in Epic Fantasy.

Hey! That's where I had it to begin with! Yay!  So, once again, Amazon has officially declared that the Quaraun series IS NOT Erotica and is in fact Fantasy.


So... it's now no longer just me saying this series is NOT Erotica. Amazon has manually reviewed the Quaraun series and has decided it to be Dark Fantasy.

And, thankfully, after 9 long days locked away in the adult filter dungeon, all of the Quaraun books are now back in general search results! YAY!  

So, I just checked and, yep, the books are back in the Fantasy (Dark for 2 and Epic for the other) department. The adult filter is gone. And the books are once again showing up in general search results, so you can once again access/buy them directly off the Amazon site without having to request a direct link to the sales page from the author anymore. Thank goodness!

I am so glad that is fixed. You have no idea how stressful the last 9 days have been for me, waiting for Amazon to review these books and give me their verdict.

This is a very frustrating issue, because my books ARE my only source of income and, they made an active attempt to have then removed and they did get the books taken offline for a period of 9 days while amazon manually reviewed the situation and then came to the conclusion that it was a false accusation and my books had no reason to be removed and were put back up for sale.

The people behind this CONTINUING attack on my career, are very, very, very hateful people as you can see from the things they are doing. I wish I knew why they were doing this What is it they hate about me and my books so much that they feel they are justified in these actions? It is almost as if they see me and my books as a threat, but I don't see how they could. I have never had a book sell more then 10 copies in a single week, my books are not famous nor are they close to best sellers. With sales that low my my books are of no threat to anyone. None of this makes any sense to me. Normal people don't do things like this to other people. Only some one with a sick, twisted, corropt mind would go out of their way to try to hurt a fellow human. 

But it is now official:

According to Amazon:

THESE BOOKS ARE NOT EROTICA!



QUESTION: GOD! How much time did you spend writing this? It took me 8 hours to read it!

ANSWER: I type at a speed of 91 words a minute. That's about 5,000 words an hour. I wrote it in 28 sessions of 3 hours each. 3 hours each day over a period of 28 days. My calculator says that 28x3=84 hours. And not all of it is on this page. This only an excerpt of the book. Yes. I said book. What you are reading here is actually only excerpts of a book. 

Yes. I did stop writing the Quaraun series, for a few weeks to write this book instead.


QUESTION: Why did they do this?

ANSWER: Because I have Autism and they thought they could get away with it. They thought I was too retarded to fight back.

But they forgot one thing: I don't have normal Autism. I have Savant Autism. I have one thing I can do extraordinarily well...and guess what that is? I can write my thought with vivid clarity and even without talking I can tell the world what they did.

If you don't know what savant Autism is, watch this 6 minute video. This is a very accurate description of  the type of Autism I have:

I talk like this.^^^^

I act like this.^^^^

People online read my words and they think I am normal like them. They rarely know, what it is to be an Adult with Autism. Because they do not see me act or hear me talk, they only read my words, they do not know that I am what they would call "retarded" if they met me in person.

Because I can write just as good as any normal person can, people who are not physically seeing me or hearing me, forget that I am severely disabled.

I may be too retarded to do a single damned thing else, but I write. I write a lot. And I don't like being bullied. And I'm not gonna sit back and be bullied. Nor will I sit back and watch them bully others. 

See below for more full details: 

Dear Bullies,

My quick response to your belief that I am:

"too stupid to live"

"people like her need to be shot in the head"

is this:

The first video is you. Your annoying, bitchy mouth is going yap, yap, yap, yap, yap, yap, yap...

The second video is me: a pink, sparkling, gay, Autistic cat, flying through space, blocking out your bitching and whining by going "Nyan-Nyan-Nyan-Nyan..."

Push play, on BOTH of them, at the same time...and WATCH the green llamas.  Just blow your mind. The effect is amazing.

My long response, is this:


About the Boycott of
Quaraun The Insane
Volume 1:
The Night of The Screaming Unicorn
(Boycotting Autistic characters & Gypsy characters)

As most of my readers know, my books are not mainstream and attract far more hate mail then fans. I have Autism and I write main characters who have Autism. I irk people. My character irk people. My books are frequently being protested by someone ,somewhere, pretty much all the time, I'm used to this happening, and in 40 years of these sorts of things, my only response to any of them was simply to not respond at all. EVER. Not once. So you are probably asking, why am I responding to THIS one?

Why? Because I just got out of the hospital and most of my readers knew I was in the hospital and have been asking why? And I got to thinking...I almost died and if I had, I would have been the third author to be killed in a forum war that left the forum and went offline and I started to realize: two people died and the world should why those authors died, why I almost became casualty number three.

So I am breaking my own rule of never responding to a negative comment to respond to this one, because I think if I don't come forward with what happened, none other authors will. They are too scared and fact is, that's not right. These authors need to go to the police with what has happened to them. Because if they don't more author are going to get hurt, and more authors are going to die.

In February 2013, a couple of authors were attack by other authors on Kboards. The incident shocked everyone and we thought it was a one time thing.

A year later, February 2014, it happened again. Bigger, bolder, then before. The attackers started "picking off" first one author and then another. I personally witnessed 72 authors get targetting. In October 2014, I became author #73 to fall under heavy fire.

In each case, they targeted either a new release or a book with high sales rank. They found something about either the book or author to "target" and then lashed out.

The MAJOR complaint they had about my book was the fact that the main character is retarded. There were several authors in hysterics over the thought of a retarded main character...or at least that's what they said. I'm not sure that was really the issue. Like I said, they had targeted 72 authors before they got to me, and they were able to have an issue with everyone of them, and it was never the same issue, although, a bunch of the books targeted did have gay characters and they did use that as an excuse for their attacks frequently.

One of the authors in question was so infuriated at the thought of a retarded main character, that she created 52 Amazon Accounts, gave this book 52 one-star reviews and then in the comments second had a 52 account argument with herself than ran for more then 300 comments. Her comments went back and forth between her hatred for "retards" and her hatred for Gypsies. She reposted the comment "This is a retarded book, with retarded characters, written by a retard for retards" more then 70 times.

In the forum posts on KBoards, the authors specifically said that they were commenting in reference to what they called "The Unicorn Book" or "The Leprechaun Book." Other terms they used where "The retarded unicorn book", "the retarded leprechaun book", and "the sissy forest elf books" along with several other less savory terms.

I ignored them for 5 months. Did not respond to them. Did not even acknowledge that I was aware of what they were saying...until they left the internet and arrived in my yard to physically attack me offline. That is why I am responding now...now that I am out of the hospital and can respond to what they did.

A lot of my books are not liked by a lot of people. I know that. That never stopped me from writing 600+ books in the past however many years it's been since I published my first book in 1978.

600+ books in nearly 40 years, means I've gotten a lot of hate mail over the years. My name has been dragged around a lot of forums over the years. Blog posts, boycotts...even a book burning in 1993.

I've never responded to any of them before. Until now. I'm responding to this one, because on November 14, 2014. That was a Tuesday and the doctors, didn't expect me to make it to the end of the week.

I had a heart attack and went into septic shock.. 

My blood pressure was 70/60 and my heart rate 122. I'm not sure what the numbers are supposed to be.

Doctors freaked out because a red stripe showed up on my left arm, from my shoulder to my hand, and the veins on my neck and chest, turned purple and my chest turned blue. The red stripe was the weirdest thing I've ever seen. It was just like someone had painted a red pinstripe up my arm. I've never seen anything like that before. Doctors said it meant that if my caretaker hadn't brought me to the hospital when he did, I would have been dead within an hour, but I'm not sure why. He said it meant there was something wrong with my heart.

I'm not sure what that meant, I have Autism, I don't know medical stuff, but they said I almost died. They were very scared. It's scary when you doctor is scared, because that means there's some very wrong.

I was still touch and go until December 27, 2014. I was very bad off for more then a month. That's why no books got published in December or January and why I was offline for so long. And it's now February 2015 and I'm still not well enough to drive.

But I wasn't the only author they attacked. This group of authors violently lashed out at 73 authors, several authors ended up hospitalized, two authors died, some lost their careers. And it bothers me that they hurt so many people. And for no reason. Near as I can tell, they were just "looking to have fun" and thought destroying live was fun.

Of course the ones doing the instigating, they weren't looking to have fun. They mad. They were really mad, hugely angry at Hugh Howey and they said they were "going to stop at nothing to destroy Hugh Howey and all his author buddies". They even posted a list on a blog of authors they intended to target.

Somehow they got it into their heads, that these particular authors they were targeting were friends with Hugh Howey. I don't know Hugh Howey. I've never even read any of his books. I'm not sure what he writes, even. I'm not sure how they came to the conclusion that I was one of what they termed "Hugh Howey's author buddies" but somehow they did and that's how my book got swept up in this really freakish forum war. I'm not sure what specifically they were mad about, they were rambling about some contest they had entered, and they thought they should have won, and I guess Hugh Howey was one of the contest judges or something. I don't know, I'm not sure what the contest was, I don't follow Hugh Howey's  work, I've never read any of his books, I'm not even sure what he wrote. I don't read ebooks. I only read print books.

The hacker went into my account and changed every post I had written those 7 years. They edited all my helpful responses, changing them into mean snark, putting people down, calling them "welfare bums" and saying that they "stupid" and their "lack of income" was "proof" of that.

I checked the dates. Whoever was doing this was logging in daily. At the top of each post you make on KB is the date and time the post was made. At the bottom of every edited post is the date and time of the edit. On my posts made during the months of August, September, and October 2014, the two times were hours apart. I would usually post on KB in the morning (4AM to 6AM) and so all of my posts were started in early morning hours. The time the hacker edited the posts would be in the afternoon or evening of the same day (noon to 6PM).  On posts made before August, to 7 years back, nearly all of the edits were made in October 2014.

The hacker was changing my posts without my knowledge and continued to do so until I found out about it October 27, 2014, at which point I set out to undo their edits and restore my posts back to their original states. I keep copies of everything, so it was a simple matter to delete their edited posts and paste the original back into it's place. I spent several days doing this.

On November 10, 2014, when I posted a new post, I noticed my signature quote had been changed. It was a snarky reference to the Rolls Royce photos. So I went back and checked. The posts, I had restored, had been edited AGAIN, to even worse snark then they had been the first time.

That same day L.G. was flipping out in hysterics on every thread on the site. Doing her "report all EelKat's posts" blah, blah, blah. While JdP, now EA, was likewise lashing out her anti-EelKat posts, with the 50+ "EAF Erotica Authors" cheering her on.

I had spent a week, undoing the damage the hacker had done, only to have them redo it as fast as I corrected it. 

On the next day I changed my password and deleted all 1,371 posts off of KBoards, as it was easier then trying to go back in and edit each post one at a time to restore the original contents.

Why did I not stay and fight? Why did I just delete my posts and leave?

I spent 5 months of 2014 bedridden from a back, hip, and knee injury that happened February 2014. I'm still not fully recovered from that as it complicated a previous illness I already had. I was in and out of the hospital several times in October, and by the time I found out on November 11th what was going on, my health had reached a "danger zone" due to a septic infection doctors had overlooked. 

On November 10th I was not well enough to want to even try to deal with the online shit. I had more important offline shit to deal with and so rather then do anything to defend myself against the trolls, I simply deleted every post off every forum, and took all my blogs offline. 

I was admitted into the hospital November 14 in critical condition and I almost died. Like I said, the stupid silly online drama was not a very high priority at that point, considering doctors were pretty sure I wouldn't even make it to the end of the week.

I was rushed back into the hospital for surgery on December 2, 2014 and the first signs that my health was coming back around did not show up until December 17, 2014. Doctor still had me listed as "in critical condition" until December 27, 2014

I am writing this today on February 20, 2015 from my bed. I'm still not well enough to be back up and around. Because of my health issues all the book releases due in October, November, December, January, and February got pushed back, with publication dates unknown because I'm simply not well enough to sit up and type for long periods of time.

That is why I deleted my posts. My health is simply not well enough to bother dealing with the stress. That and no other reason. I don't care what other people are telling you. All those things they are telling you, simply is not true. 

The members involved in this attack, every one of them came from the EAF forum. They were NOT long time regular members of KBoards. They were just petty, whinny, jealous crybabies looking for a bone to pick and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. What they did was extremely undignified and unprofessional and in the long run, they are only hurting themselves and their own careers, because what they did, they did on a Google searchable public forum in front of the whole world to see.

I have my own life to live, my own family to take care of, my own career to run...I can't be bothered to to join in on some stupid, petty forum war. They want to fight with someone? Fine. Just remember it takes 2 to fight. I choose to pick my battles. I stand up and fight against things that are important. Guess what? They were not important.  Those people were nothing to me but stupid, racist slugs, not worthy of my time or effort. And so rather then join in on their little war, I chose to simply leave and take all my old helpful posts with me.

Simple fact of the matter is this: They can not attack me, if I'm not there for them to attack. They can not hack my posts and rewrite them into stupid chicken shit lies, if I have no posts for them to hack. 

I have better things to do with my time, then fight with forum trolls.

I was not the only member whose account was hacked in this manner. Nearly every "minority race" member who had replied on that "minority race" thread, had their account attacked and/or hacked. (Several of them have contacted me to tell me that I wasn't alone that they too had been attacks and/or hacked) I noticed it in October, that two members suddenly started saying really wild things that were completely out of character. D.D. for example had formerly been a very helpful member and suddenly, was a gibbering braggart, claiming to be earning $30,000 a month while calling that "low income". L.G. another formerly helpful member, suddenly was also claiming to be earning insane amounts of money ($14k a week in one post) and sticking it to everyone not making enough to be "in the club".

It was utterly insane the way the entire of Kboards had turned into a "I make more money then you" riot for a while. But what was worse, was when I discovered my posts were like that too! Good god! That was one of the things the hacker had done to my posts and it made me wonder how many of these other crazy money claims were a result of a hacker as well!

But the thing is, they really went wild in their attacks on these authors and...

Two authors died in the war on KBoards already.

They almost made it three.

That is why I have chosen to respond to this incident when normally I would simply ignore something like this. Because this wasn't a normal "I hate your book" incident. This wasn't readers not liking a book. This was authors in violent competition with one another. 

People died. I almost died, and I wasn't even a part of their war.

I wasn't even a bystander watching their war.

I don't even know what they are fighting about.

They just got so out of control, that they started pulling in any author that happened to be a member of any forum Hugh Howey was a member of. These people are out of control and someone needs to stop them, before another author dies. 

No one is talking about what happened, because people are scared.

These authors who were attacked - they are terrified, and that's not right.

They are scared to post on KBoards anymore, and that's not right.

They are scared to talk online to their readers anymore, and that's not right.

They are scared to share information to help new writers get started in their writing career anymore, and that's not right.

These people terrified out their minds. Many of them, didn't just leave KBoards - they left everything - they even unpublished all their books, all their social networks, all their blogs - they vanished completely offline. They were that frightened for their lives and the lives of their families, and that's not right.

Some of them, were so terrified, that they commit suicide, and that's not right.

This should not have happened.

The world needs to know what happened to those authors. Why they vanished. Why they unpublished their books. Why they shut all their online sites. Why some of them even commit suicide.

This is the worst case of authors behaving badly I have ever seen.

I've had hundreds of people hate my books before, thousands of people. I'm used to that. It's important that understand, this attack on this bookwas NOT readers. This was a group of authors who banded together in a very underhanded attempt to destroy the careers of 73 authors, whom they felt for various reasons "deserved it".

I'm not going to address the issue they attacked other authors for, I will leave that to the other authors themselves. It is my hope, that the other authors who were attacked on Kboards during this horrible event, please come forward and share you story of what happened to you. 

TELL YOUR READERS WHAT HAPPENED!

THEY DESERVE TO KNOW!

There is a frightful trend in authors attacking authors, and it's getting worse. It needs to stop. People have died. This have gotten out of control. Someone needs to stop them. 

PLEASE COME FORWARD!

TELL PEOPLE WHAT THEY DID TO YOU!

DON'T LET THEM DO THIS TO ANYONE ELSE!

Each of the 73 authors attacked, were attacked for different "reasons". The "reasons" they gave in their forum posts on KBoards for attacking my books were "retarded characters", "Gypsy characters", and oddly "FAKE Erotica" (though, I'm what the term "FAKE Erotica" means.) They changed their specified reason depending on which author they were aiming their posts to.

I suppose part of the issue becomes: Is the main character retarded and, why?

So let me answer one reader's question, and that will then explain why I wrote Quaraun the way I did, and perhaps, you'll understand better why it is these authors were flipping out over Quaraun's character.


*This question and it's answer was previously written and being copied from HERE, so it doesn't "specifically" apply it's answer to the situation of the boycott; I am copying it over to here, because it explains why Quaraun's character has Autism, which was an issue brought up by the boycotters, and as I had already written about that topic, I'm just going to repost that answer into this space rather then write up a new answer for this situation.

Had JDP or LG or SC had any sense, they would have looked that up and read it BEFORE having their fit of false accusation and hysterics on Kboards.

Google is your friend people, AND the link to this page WAS in my forum signature on KBoards, so, you didn't even have to Google to find out what genre this series was, you could have just used your brain and taken a look at the link in my forum signature which went to the page here about the Quaraun series where this question was posted originally.

I'm just going to repost that answer into this space rather then write up a new answer for this situation. Because my time is valuable, and I don't have free time to waste rewriting something I already wrote months ago. You people may have time to do nothing but sit on the internet post forum posts all day, but I don't, because unlike you, I happen to have a life, outside, in the sunlight, and I choose to live it, so copy & paste time...

It's a fairly long answer (7,000 or so words) and I won't be continueing my answer to the boycott until the end of this one, so you got a lot more reading ahead of you.

I've put coloured bars at the beginning and end of this question & it's answer so you know when it stops and I actually start talking about the boycott. If you have previously read the answer to the question via it's original page, then just scroll down, till you reach the colored bars :










QUESTION: Other characters call Quaraun insane, retarded, stupid, an idiot, or a dolt. He seems to have a mental illness. What is wrong with him?

SHORT ANSWER: I have Savant Autism, Clinical Depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and many people are quick to tell you that I am "insane" because of those things.  My entire life everyone has from my parents and relatives in my childhood, to my friends in my adults years, introduce me to people as "This is Wendy, just ignore her. She's insane." I long ago accepted the fact that I have those disorders and that I must be insane otherwise, why would so many people say it? Actually I came to accept the fact that I was insane at the ripe old age of 8 years old, so you can tell how long people, especially my aunts and uncles have been calling me that. I do not like that people call me insane and often ask people to stop saying that about me because it hurts my feelings. People laugh at the idea that a "retarded crazy person" could possibly have feelings, and continue to call me insane.

I have Autism. I write what I know. So, let's try that again, and see what we get this time, eh?

Quaraun has Savant Autism, Clinical Depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. His entire life everyone has from his parents and relatives in his childhood, to his friends in his adults years, introduces him to people as "This is Quaraun, just ignore him. He's insane." He becomes known as Quaraun the Insane, because of the name calling. He does not like that people call him Quaraun the Insane and often asks people to stop saying that about him because it hurts his feelings. People laugh at the idea that a "retarded crazy person" could possibly have feelings, and continue to call him Quaraun the Insane. 

Yeah. There it is. Quaraun's character is based largely off myself. He sees the world as I see the world.

I am also mixed blood (red, brown, and black, but look white) married to a white man, who's family came from a very snooty pure-blood background (and are white supremacists) and are thus very much in non-approval of our relationship. Which is thus why I wrote Quaraun, from a very pure blooded race of Elves, with his lover Unicorn/BoomFuzzy being a black Asian mixed blood.

Other characters in the series are quick to call Quaraun stupid and idiot, because of his Autism, and they are also quick to point to his black skinned, Asian looking lover and say, "Here's proof he's stupid, he's white and he's got a coloured lover." (Yes, white people have actually said this to me and my partner.)

A lot of people don't understand what it is like to live with Autism. Most don't want to understand. Most don't care. Hell, the average person doesn't even know what Autism is.

Watch this video. This is what Quaraun has. This is what Quaraun is acting like. This is what he is talking like. This is why people are picking on him so badly:

^^^ This book was among the ones that fell under attack by this weird anti-gay, anti Gypsy, and anti-Autistic main character attack (not from readers, but rather from other  authors). You can read my response to the boycott of this book HERE.

The response from readers has been very good. This book sold 196 copies it's first day and 211 on day two (in Bizarro genre, that's huge; not so big if you were to compare it with say the Romance genre.) (It was also at it's introductory .99c the first 30 days, which meant I made about $175. LOL! So if the authors who went nutty, were in anyway flipping out because they thought I was raking in cash - as one author said was the reason they were so pissed - they are sorely mistaken!)

As can be expected with small niche genres like this one, sales tapered off after the first 30 days and are about 1 every 3 days ever since, (which means it brings in $35 to $50 a month income) which is still fairly high for this genre, but very low if you were to compare it to a more mainstream genre. Many readers have contacted me to say they loved the book and await the next one.  (I point out the income, because, like I said, I got quite a few nasty emails from authors who were feeling the need to be vindictive. They were very upset that the book sold so many copies the first 2 days. BUT - those first day copies sold to long-time fans who had waited 3 years for the release.)

There have been a few who have contacted me to say: "What in the Hell did I just read? What is this? I need eye bleach!" Oh well. It is Bizarro and Bizarro is a very small genre for a reason: it's not well suited to the tastes of the overall general public. Most people simple are not going to like the Quaraun series, and that's fine. It caters to a very specific niche and very small niche: Bizarre Yaoi Ball Fetish with Knotting and Barbs and the occasional Tentacles.  There are not a lot of people out there into that sort of thing, so I don't expect a lot of sales or that a lot of people will like it...

However, I also did not expect anyone to boycott it, and least of all for the reasons they cited!

For some reason, this series, this book in particular, really pissed off several self-published authors.

Like I said, there were no readers or "general public" involved in this mini-boycott that took place. It was all self-published authors (none of them was traditionally published or trade published). Most of the out-cry came from two authors in particular, who made a small and failed attempt to rally up the authors of KBoards into their boycott.

One interesting thing to note is that, while it appears that boycott starter JDP actually did read the book, it also appears that not a single one of any of the other boycotters had read it, and were basing everything they said off her misinformation and false accusations.

What happened was this:

In October 2014 through into December 2014, a group of about 50 self-published authors launched a mini protest of me and my books, after the release of The Night of The Screaming Unicorn.  Why? Uhm...I'm still not entirely sure, actually.

The two authors leading the attack JDP and LG are not Fantasy writers and I've yet to understand why they did the HORRENDOUS things they did. 

Zombie Apocalypse and Lesbian Erotica author JDP, described the Quaraun series as "FAKE Erotica" (her use of caps), when she wrote a hysterical 200+ post rant on the KBoards forum calling herself an "EAF Erotica Author" (whatever that means) and bragging wild posts via two separate accounts (Eclectic Authoress was the 2nd) stating that: "EelKat is a FAKE Erotica author, she's too stupid and retarded to know what Erotica is. I know what Erotica is because I've been writing REAL Erotica since 2006."

I don't write Erotica, I write Bizarro, so why she was even classifying me as an Erotica author has kind of left me clueless. I believe she may have been referring to the fact that I write Monster Porn, which is NOT Erotica. Monster Porn is a genre which features non-Human characters.

Monster Porn is not called "Porn" as in sex, but rather as in "cult obsession" with monsters. Some Monster Porn contains sex. Some Monster Porn is Erotica. Some Monster Porn is Sweet Romance. Some Monster Porn has no sex at all.

Monster Porn IS NOT a sub-genre of Erotica. Monster Porn is a sub-genre of Horror.

The Night of The Screaming Unicorn does classify as Monster Porn. But does it classify as Erotica?  It is 55,742 words long (173 pages) and contains 23,000 words (74 pages) of gay/yaoi/male on male sex scenes.

She was comparing it to 50 Shades of Grey. With 50 shades of grey being what she called "REAL Erotica"

Now I didn't know who this JDP was until she started lashing out at my books on KBoards. So, I looked her up to find out what she wrote. Her KBoards' account says she writes  Zombie Apocalypse and Lesbian Erotica and her Amazon account confirms this. I suppose my question then becomes does SHE know what Yaoi is?

For starters, Yaoi is not Erotica. Yaoi is gay fiction for female readers. It is NOT intended to gay male readers and does not represent a typical gay relationship. The point of yaoi, is not so much to have sex, but rather to have as many naked men with erect dicks, cocks, and penises as possible on every page. Yaoi novels are to female fans what PlayBoy magazine is to male fans.

Yaoi not Erotica, in the same way PlayBoy is not Erotica. Yaoi is meant to show off the male body, the same way PlayBoy is meant to show off the female body. The difference being that Yaoi is text and PlayBoy is pictures.

The Quaraun series is Bizarro Unicorn Porn Yaoi, a sub-genre of Monster Porn. It is not Erotica, real, fake, or otherwise, so why JDP was making the claims she was making about this book, I don't know, other then the fact, it's quite apparent that she has no clue what Yaoi or Monster Porn or Bizarro is.

But this brings me back to 50 Shades of Grey, because JDP was comparing the Quaraun series to 50SoG. 50 Shades is VERY tame compared to The Night of The Screaming Unicorn. And it is no comparision to it at all. They are two completely separate genres altogether. And so I'm baffled as to the comparison. Of course, if she knows Erotica so "well"... uhmm... yeah... how exactly is 50 Shades of Grey Erotica? 

Really? Seriously? You are calling 50 Shades of grey...Erotica? GOOD GOD! And you claim to know the difference between "FAKE Erotica" and "REAL Erotica"? Honey...your head is so where the sun don't shine, in you think 50 Shades of Grey is even REMOTELY close to being Erotica.

Now if you are somebody who doesn't read Erotica and you read 50 Shades of Grey and thought it was Erotica, well, then, yes, maybe you are going to think that The Night of The Screaming Unicorn is Erotica.

I suppose the question here is: Do you think 50 Shades of Grey is Erotica? I don't. I'm not sure how anyone could, actually. But why do I ask this? Because when you compare a Romance Novel like 50 Shades of Grey to a Yaoi Boy's Love Light Novel like The Night of The Screaming Unicorn well, good God! It is Yaoi after all.

However, it must be remembered that 50 Shades of Grey is NOT Erotica. It is Erotic Romance and there's a HUGE  difference  between  Erotica and Erotic Romance. Anyone who calls 50 Shades of Grey, Erotica, has never read Erotica, no matter how much they claim to be able to tell the difference between "REAL Erotica" and "FAKE Erotica" (again - her use of caps, I'm just quoting what she said.)

If you compare  The Night of The Screaming Unicorn  to actually Erotica and not something like 50 Shades of Grey, then you'd see that it's not Erotica at all.

And while we are on the subject: I have lived 28 wonderful years, very happily the sub of a Master/slave BDSM relationship, and I can tell you this: 50 Shades of Grey has absolutely nothing to do with BDSM. 50 Shades of Grey is just glorified abuse. Whoever wrote that book, doesn't know squat about a DOM/sub relationship. 50 Shades of Grey is nothing but a mockery of the BDSM relationship, it does not accurately represent my lifestyle and I really don't like people comparing my books with it.

But the important thing here is that I never classified  The Night of The Screaming Unicorn as Erotica and I'm not sure why JDP was saying that this series/story was "FAKE Erotica". I am just completely baffled by her logic.

Is she saying that it IS Erotica, but it's not REAL because there are no Humans in it? Or is it because she writes Lesbian Erotica, tat she feels it's FAKE because there are only males in it?

I just don't understand. What exactly does she mean, when she says REAL Erotica, FAKE Erotica, and annoying Erotica.

That last one I think confuses me even more. At first she calls it "FAKE Erotica" (How can Erotica be FAKE? It either is or is not Erotica? Right?) But then later calls it "annoying Erotica". 

Wait...didn't she say it was fake? If it's "Annoying Erotica" isn't that then her saying that it is in fact Erotica?

But then, keep in mind, she posted a whopping 5,000 forum posts between October 2014 and December 2014, while ranting her 3 month long hourly, daily rants of hatred for me and this book. This was not someone writing a review, this was someone daily trolling a forum and posting THOUSANDS of posts, while demanding an all out boycott and attempting to gather up an angry mob to join her. 

I suppose my biggest question of all to JDP is: What the fuck? So, you didn't like me book. Fine. But 5,000 forum posts, posted in a single month, all about how much you hate me and my books?

I have got to find me a fainting banana GIF to insert here.

5,000 forum posts? How does one person have enough time to write 5,000 forum posts of hate in a single month? And good God, WHY?

Damn. My book really pissed this woman off. I think she thought it was supposed to be Erotica and was pissed that it wasn't? I don't know. I still have no clue what she was so flipping out about, she for the most part was just copy and pasting the same phrase over and over again:

 "EelKat is a FAKE Erotica author, she's too stupid and retarded to know what Erotica is. I know what Erotica is because I've been writing REAL Erotica since 2006."

She posted that line in just about every single one of those 5,000 hysterical forum posts...and then she left Kboards and started posting those same posts on other forums. This woman just went friggin wild. And I don't know why. It's actually quite hilarious...do you just sit on your computer all day long and do nothing else? oh, and I do have a banana for that. Oh you know I do. Let's go get him shall we?

Ah...there he is, and look he brought all his buddies along too!

Oh...we can't have those bananas dancing by themselves now can we? let's give them some music for those feet! Here's the song I had on replay while I wrote The Night of the Screaming Unicorn. enjoy!

Are listening to the words of this song? Seriously, listen to the words of this song...I played it about 5,000 times while writing Screaming Unicorn...if you read the book, it'll hit yeah in a minute...oh yeah, I totally fanficed this song.

Nothing like Monster Porn music for writing Monster Porn.

Oh...now that song deserves some vampire bunnies...

Ever seen this site's 404 page?

:p

OMG! Where is in my Snape GIF? We the can't have the vampire bunny with out their cheerleader now can we? Off to go find it...

I'm sorry, I get so distracted so easily, but hey, I've been tossing bananas at you guys since 1997 so why stop now?

I can write crazy people, because I am one. I'm absolutely bonkers. That's not a joke. I got papers that says so and everything.

Try Googling "Maine's Crazy cat woman" - I had 84 cats at the time they branded that title one me. Yes,not a typo eighty-four cats. Do you know Pine Land Center and Spring Harbor? (Maine's two largest mental health institutes?) No? Well, they sure know me.  I'm so crazy I make crazy people normal. I'm so crazy, that they went and got state funding to start a research project, JUST to study me, because they said I'm unclassifiable, they've never seen a case like me. 

I know I'm crazy, Sugar Pie. Every knows I'm crazy. Doctors are screaming from the rooftops and running in herds to study me. I'm in medical journals, and a team of psychiatrists from Australia came all the way here to Maine to study me. I'm so crazy, even Stephen King writes about me.

I know why i write so many forum posts. It's because I'm EElKat the one and only and I'm I'm nuts. What's YOUR excuse?

Now where was I? oh yes, 5,000 forum posts. Damn. She tried to out-crazy me!

 ROTFLMAO!

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!

Let's shine some moonbeams on that crazy, eh?

JDP, do you know that in 2005, on the SoapBox a group of us, got together to see how many forum posts we could posts before the Pinks (moderators) stopped us. We each started a thread called "I WON!" (after iwon.com which was a big thing at the time and we were actually getting iwon.com points for doing this, because we did it with iwon.com toolbar and everytime we refreshed the page it added another point.) So, we each started a thread called "I WON!" and then posted nothing but the words "I Won 1", "I Won 2", "I Won 3", etc all day long. In the end most people dropped out after a hundred or a thousand posts...15 hours later of none stop posting, I passed "I Won 15,000"...and then POOF all the I WOn threads vanished. oooooh. A mod logged in. ROTFLMAO! LOLOL!

I didn't post like everyone else did though...I added a banana to every post, and when out of bananas I starts using other GIFs. I have 50,000 GIFs stored in my hard-drive. I have a GIF for EVERYTHING!

I Won. I not only posted the most post, I did each one in a different marquee colour, and added a GIF at the bottom.

Don't know what a marquee post looks like? 

 Let's marquee the next line, shall we?

You know...I do seem to recall mentioning that I'm a professional clown car driver....you know as in...a clown...that drives a car...we're the Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach...carnival Gypsies, remember? Being crazy IS my profession.

I got pink-slapped so many times because of that, but boy was it fun. I loved the []. Miss the []. Eh. They changed it. They decided we only post serious post. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

"Twighlight Manor Calling MustangRockstar" anyone? Ooooh HAHAHA! Google THAT one - it's still there - 10 years and it's still going! They pinned it? The mods friggin pinned it! You tried to out crazy the super crazy marquuee queen of the SoapBox, Sugar! LOL!

HEY! SomeGuy! Are you still  out there? I'm still using the GIFs you gave me! {{{hugs}}} Thank you for making them for me! I'm loving 'em still after all these years! XOXOXO

I'm the queen of forum crazy, Sugar Pie, you're gonna have a tough time if you try to out-crazy me, but hey go ahead and try. The world needs more crazy... lot's of empty spaces in the Padded Cell...come join us, we have cookies.

:D

There now, you see? I can be crazy too. 

But I'm known for crazy.

I wear crazy clothes.

I drive crazy cars.

I've been a sideshow circus clown since I was 4 years old.

I own crazy amounts of books.

I write Bizarro for crying out loud - a genre that IS crazy for the sake of being crazy.

Crazy is my trademark brand. It's who I am. It's what people expect.  If I'm not being crazy, people start asking "What's wrong with her?"

Crazy is my profession. I am professionally crazy. And yes, I know how crazy that sounds, but...we are carnival people. PEOPLE PAY US TO BE CRAZY IN PUBLIC!

IT'S OUR JOB!

We go out of our way to be crazy ON PURPOSE.

THINK about it, Honey. We are clowns. I'm a clown. Clowns. Have you ever seen one?

Here's a video full of clowns if you don't know what a clown is:

(Yes, I am a Juggalo and proud of it. There's something for to think about.)

I'm a crazy clown fan of insane clowns. WOO-HOO!

You know what's even better then Insane Clown Posse? Their German fanband Megaherz:

Had enough evil clowns for one day? I haven't, but let's move on, I got boycotters waiting for a reply.

But, yeah, carnival Gypsies. Circus. Sideshow. Rhinestoned car. I live in a green metal-flaked motorhome. owner of the side show attraction known as "The World's Most Haunted Car"

Don't know them? Here they are:

Rhinestoned car... (look at the polka-dotted white-walls)

Can you read the flags?

Voodoo Priestess rank of Medsen Fay, Marji Loa to Damballa Weddo

Scotland

Gypsy

Transvestite

...and four Liberace Unicorns.

and

Lime green metal flake motorhome...

and The World's Most Haunted Car...

See? Carnival cars for carnival people. 

No pictures of the clowns as clowns never reveal their true identity, so you're just gonna have to guess who I am, but...

You do know what a clown is right?

You know... comedians who wear crazy clothes and make-up and wigs and do crazy things to make people laugh? Because doing things that are funny and silly and crazy to make people laugh and smile and be happy, is what circus clowns do.

And everybody knows that. We are the Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach. We are carnival people. Everywhere we go, online too, we go out of our way to make people happy.

It is our mission in life to spread joy. And that is why you see ME on forums, deliberately, going out of my way to make a fool of myself. Because it gives people something to laugh at. Makes people smile. Gives them a few seconds of laughter, to help them forget for a few seconds at least, their troubles, worries, anger, sadness...

Helping people is what I do. That's why I wrote the 1,371 How-To Articles For Writers, which, because of you, I have removed from the internet.

You see, I act crazy online on purpose to give people joy and happiness for at least a small part of their day...but you... you really ARE crazy...

Think about it, Honey. Really, just stop, breath, relax, and think about what you did. What you said. All that meanness. All that anger. All that vindictiveness. All that hated...

5,000 posts worth of it.

Me being crazy doesn't hurt my career because being crazy IS my career. I get paid to act like I do.

Honey, going on a wild psycho-crazed, anger filled rant on a forum, that is something that is going to destroy your career. Did you stop and think about that before you did it? Do you have any idea how what you did makes you look? How VERY unprofessional that was of you?

Do you know that I have been on 300+ forums since 1997, and have posted MILLIONS of posts, and NEVER ONCE in that time, have I ever said a mean thing to or about ANYONE?

That's why I was a beta test member of nearly 200 forums, was the moderator of 12 forums (including Squidoo), and have long had a reputation for helping people and/or making them laugh.

Did you know that in all my crazy forum posting, I've NEVER ONCE teased another person.

I've NEVER ONCE picked on another person.

I've NEVER ONCE called out another person.

I've NEVER ONCE put down another person.

I've NEVER ONCE harassed another person.

I've NEVER ONCE bullied another person.

I've never joined in a forum war.

I've never replied to a hateful comment.

And after 600+ books since 1978, I've gotten THOUSANDS of bad reviews on my books and I've NEVER responded to ANY of them.

I maintain peace and nonviolence at all times.

I look for the good in every bad.

THAT is what I'm known for.

People don't know me for my books. My books aren't famous. But people know me for who I am and how I act on forums and how I treat others, and they know they are safe around me because I NEVER do or say ANYTHING to in any way hurt ANYONE. That is my reputation on forums. A lot of forums. for a long time. JDP/EA, LG, SC, K/SS, and the 50+ EAF Erotica Authors - you made a very large-scale attempt to smear my name, destroy my reputation, and damage my career... and I don't know why you did it.

You, I worry about JDP. You started posting you hate for me in September and it's February now and you haven't stopped. You are posting daily, on the hour, every hour, it almost looks automated, except that I know the forum host KBoards uses and you can't automate posts on that. That's why I worry...because this isn't normal forum trolling...this is stalking...you are stalking me and I don't like it.

Do you have anyone you can talk to JDP? A friend? A neighbor? A sister? A brother? A pastor? A counsellor? Do you have the ability to turn off your computer and get up and go outside? You need help JDP. something is seriously wrong here. You posted 5,000 hate filled forum posts about my in October alone, and it's February now and you are still posting daily, hourly, hate.

Why? You didn't like my book. Okay. Fine. I gt the message. Move on. Isn't there another book out there you can read? Don't you have some zombies you can write about? Can't you just step away from the computer for a few hours and take a walk, get some fresh are, drink some tea, have a doughnut. You're freaking me out JDP, you really are. You're taking this to stalking levels now.

You do realize you are going to be remembered for this now? You are not going to be remembered for your books, you are going to be remembered as the angry, hate-filled, psychbitch who wrote 5,000 posts on how much you hated EelKat. Is that REALLY how you wanted history to remember you?

5,000 forum posts about how much you hate me and my books? That's a little obsessive, don't you think? No. It's a lot obsessive. And it takes a lot of time. I know. I did it on the SoapBox remember? And I was only posting a single line in each post, and it took FOREVER. So I know the amount of time, it took you to write 5,000 LONG forum posts, and do it in only a few days. Tell me, did you get any sleep that month?

I'm trying to understand what your problem is, because I really don't think it's me or my books. It looks like you got some really major issues going on in your life and your frustrated and are looking for someone to take it out on, and I think you are being in danger of becoming dangerous. You need to calm down JDP. This 6 month long conniption...that's kind of extreme.

You read a book. You didn't like it. And you are acting like ... I don't know what you are acting like, but this ISN'T a normal reaction to not liking a book you read, and like I said, you are starting to freak me out.

What in the hell pissed you off so much that you reacted, in such a petty, childish way? What was with all the anger? I almost have to ask based on your books (which I did buy and read, because I wanted to find out what sort of books were written by someone who would do this type of thing? --- Or was that your plan all along? Bash my books to drive traffic to yours? You are a freaking lunatic JDP, you know that right?) you really HATE men, don't you? Your books are all very pro-fem-liberator. 

Your books, are all female characters and read in the same angry style you posted on the forum, and my impression is somewhere along the line a man really fucked you over and you now hate every man on the planet, and the only reason my Screaming Unicorn pissed you off is because, it glorifies male genitals, something you seem to utterly loath.

Which then leads me to ask: Do you act like this every time you read a book that has a male character in it? Because, Honey, male  characters make up 90% of the characters in books. That's an awful lot of books for you to go hating.

I'd question the incident more if I was the only author who was singled out, but I wasn't. 73 authors left KBoard during this incident. And more then 3/4 of them wrote gay fiction.  I was one of 73 authors who fell under heavy fire by JDP and her fellow "EAF Erotica Authors" (as they called themselves.) By the middle of October it had become very clear that any author who wrote male/male gay fiction was not welcomed on KBoards and risked being brutally bullied and harassed if they dared to openly admit on KBoards that they wrote gay fiction, the authors of Gay Erotica getting the biggest brunt of the hate force.

It seems, near as I can tell, that my Quaraun series fell under attack, simply because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time (on KBoards with a newly published book featuring a gay couple, during October 2014, when there were several new "EAF Erotica Author" members, on the hunt for any gay author to take down.

Now, there have been readers who have said the story was "Gay Erotica" and oddly, for a few weeks in October (during the height of the KBoards Incident) Amazon, moved this book out of the Epic Fantasy section and into the Gay Erotica section. I had to contact Amazon and ask for a manual review of the book, in order to verify that it WAS NOT Erotica, at which point Amazon put it back in Epic Fantasy where it belongs.

While there were more then 50 authors (and 1 author with 52 accounts) involved in the protest that took place on KBoards demanding a boycott of me, my books, and specifically the Quaraun series, in trying to sort out what happened and how this thing got started, the oldest posts I could find were all written by JDP and all of them were hysterical rants comparing "REAL Erotica" to "FAKE Erotica", the earliests posts being back and forth conversations with herself between her own 2 accounts. 

JDP, since you made 5,000 forum posts to describe my Quaraun series as:

 "EelKat is a FAKE Erotica author, she's too stupid and retarded to know what Erotica is. I know what Erotica is because I've been writing REAL Erotica since 2006."

I think, I therefore need to address this, because it seems to be bothering you quiet a bit. You did say it 5,000 times after all.

Somehow you got it into your head that the Quaraun series was erotica, and then you read it and it wasn't Erotica, and you flipped the frick out. So, you wanted my attention, otherwise, why would you have said that so many times? Well, you got my attention, okay? Actualy, you AREN't the one, I'm mad at. LG is the one who REALLY got my attention. You I was ignoring. But LG's replies to your posts... yeah ...that's not something I can ignore, but before we address LG's comments, I'm going to adress YOUR comment which is what LG was replying to.

As EVERYONE knows. I do NOT respond PRIVATELY to private messages or emails. All of my responses are ALWAYS public. JDP, I've already had readers ask me if the Quaraun series was Erotica and already answered them, long before the series even started to be published. So, let's answer your question, shall we?










*This question and it's answer was previously written and being copied from HERE, so it doesn't "specifically" apply it's answer to the situation of the boycott; I am copying it over to here, because I had already answered a reader's question "Is this series Erotica" and had JDP or LG or SC had any sense, they would have looked that up and read it BEFORE having their false accusation and hysterics on Kboards.

Google is your friend people, AND the link to this page WAS in my forum signature on KBoards, so, you didn't even have to Google to find out what genre this series was, you could have just used your brain and taken a look at the link in my forum signature which went to the page here about the Quaraun series where this question was posted originally.

I'm just going to repost that answer into this space rather then write up a new answer for this situation. Because my time is valuable, and I don't have free time to waste rewriting something I already wrote months ago. You people may have time to do nothing but sit on the internet post forum posts all day, but I don't, because unlike you, I happen to have a life, outside, in the sunlight, and I choose to live it, so copy & paste time...

It's a fairly long answer (8,000 or so words) and I won't be continueing my answer to the boycott until the end of this one, so you got a lot more reading ahead of you.

I've put coloured bars at the beginning and end of this question & it's answer so you know when it stops and I actually start talking about the boycott. If you have previously read the answer to the question via it's original page, then just scroll down, till you reach the colored bars :










ANSWER TO THE #1 
MOST ASKED QUESTION ABOUT THE QUARAUN SERIES:

Is it Erotica?

Short answer:

NO!

No. It's a spin-off of The Twighlight Manor series and thus is the same genre: Literary Bizarro.

It's the story of a seriously depressed, suicidal, gay Autistic Elf who dresses like Liberace and falls in love with a sex-crazed drug dealing bi-sexual unicorn. Yes. I grew up in the 1970s. And this is the prequel to a series I wrote in the 1970s.

No. It's not Erotica. It's Bizarro about a gay Elf and his unicorn.

Quaraun is a gay sissified transvestite Elf, born male but lives as a female, and is cast out of Elven society because of his lifestyle. The series follows his everyday life, following the everyday events of his life as he struggles to find acceptance in a world that has no tolerance for males who choose to dress as women. 

The series is violent as he is constantly bullied, teased, and beaten up by pretty much everyone. A FEW of the 130+ volumes contain sex scenes, because the series follows the everyday events of his life and over the course of his life he does have sex and people are prone to do.

Most of the series follows his relationship with a bi-sexual, serial-killing, shape-shifting, drug-dealing Unicorn, named BoomFuzzy, who lives in a gingerbread house, makes drugged Fae Food to lure unsuspecting Humans to his dinner plate, and is the only person who accepts Quaraun for who he is.

If this were a movie, it'd only be rated PG-13, and rated that only for the language (there is a lot of swearing and dropping of the f-word) and the use of drugs (secondary character is a Faerie specializing in making drugged Fae Food to trap Humans into the Realm of Fae so he can eat them.)

I think my question to you is: WHY are SO MANY people jumping to the conclusion that this series is Erotica? I mean, this is the single most asked question about the series (I have received this question nearly 30 times now). I can not figure out why I'm being bombarded with this question.

Okay, let me put is another way: Do you classify the Austin Powers movies as Erotica? Genre-wise, the Quaraun series most closely matches the Austin Powers series, as the Quaraun series is a silly nonsensical spoof that makes fun of various 1970s/1980s shows. 

Erotica when made into a movie is Rate-X (now called NC-17).

The Austin Powers movies are only rated PG-13 (not even bad enough to be Rated R) and are aimed at an intended age group of 16 to 25 years old. It is considered Young Adult (YA) same as Harry Potter.

So...I'm confused JDP...

...HOW exactly is it that I am either competing with you or out to get you. THIS... right here... NOW ... on this page ... is the FIRST time I have EVER addressed you. I have never replied to one of your forums posts.

Hey, JDP: Guess what? Ask and it shall be given.

I'm competing with you? Explain HOW you came to that conclusion? Since you were saying that I bought your books and read them to see what in the heck it was I was supposedly in competition with (seeing how I had never heard of you prior to your accusations on KBoards)

You write modern day, urban, fem-lib, lesbian fiction, that has a very serious, angry "I hate every one" pro-bitch, fuck the dick attitude. You HATE men and it is oozing out of every corner of your books.

I write quasi-Medieval torture gorn, featuring gay non-Human dressed like Liberace and acting like Vincent Price. I spent 37 years writing EXACTLY ONE THING: The Twighlight Manor series. Everybody they ain't fucking, they is eating.

So, where is the competition JDP?

modern day vs quasi-Medieval

Nope. Those don't compete.

fem-lib vs torture gorn

Nope. Not there either.

lesbian humans vs gay/transvestite non-humans

Nope. That's not it.

You're characters aren't eating people when they get done fucking them, so it ain't that either.

I don't get it. WHERE is the competition?

You have one book, which, as far as I can tell, is the only book that could possible be seen as competing, it's about zombies. But it's like Walking Dead fanfic, it's not alien flesh eaters from space, so even that doesn't compete with mine.

I'm just baffled by your accusations that I'm supposedly competing with you, especially given that'd I'd never even heard of you until you started attacking me on Kboards.

Are you suggesting that you WANT me to compete with you?

I have Autism, JDP. I live in my own world of pink unicorns that you can't see, how exactly do you expect me to compete with you? You write mainstream white American lifestyle characters. I'm not white, I've never lived in American culture. You write lesbians. What do I know about lesbians? JDP, I write what I know.

I have Autism, I lack the ability to imagine things that are not as they actually are. There is a reason I write gay, transvestite, Autistic, Gypsy characters, who wear pink and live in a world cut off from American culture.

You are not writing ANY of the things I write and I am not writing ANY of the things you write, so I am just utterly baffled as to where you see the competition.

And...I'm out to get you?!? WHAT? I've never even heard of you before. How'd you come up with that stupid conclusion?

JDP...you left Kboards, went to TWO other forums, spread a bunch of rumours and lies about me to wind them into a frenzy. Do you want to know HOW I know you did that? EAF and DDF are private forums and no non-member can see what you say there right?

WRONG!

JDP - I've been building websites since 1997. Here's something to chew on:

 I'm an expert at website building. I know pretty much everything there is to know about SEO and Panda, Penguin, Phantom, etc and... 

I used to teach people how to build websites, you know? in fact, I was in the process of helping the owner of Kboards with the forum's "kerfuffle" with Google. Kboards is in finacial trouble, they needed help with their affilatee links, vs Google. In October 2014, Kboards got hit hard by Panda. I know what is wrong with their website. I know how to fix the problem. I was in the process of telling H.V. HOW to fix the problem when I left Kboard. I deleted those posts too.

JDP, Kboards is in serious deep doo-doo with Penguin. They got hit HARD and if they don't have an expert web analyst advisor to tell them how to get out of Google barnyard shit, Kboards is gonna go offline. They don't have people there, who know how to work around Penguin. I do. I've been doing it for years. I was in the middle of helping H.V. SAVE Kboards from being pulled down off the internet by Google.  If they can't fix the Penguin shit they are in with Google, that site won't last to see 2016. People who know how to fix the problem, charge HUNDREDS of dollars an hour. I was doing it for H.V. for free. Kboards is a flounder sinking fast, not many sites have ever survived being hit by Penguin. What do you think happened to Squidoo?

I write java, Html, all that stuff. I'm better at talking to computers in DOS code and java then I am at talking to people. JDP, how do you think I know how to do things like this:

¡ǝןʞɔıd ƃuıɔuɐp ɐ ɯ,I

I was one of the Squdoo SquidAngels. I'm the Squidoo member with all the beeping, blinking, dancing, wild colored Squidoo lenses because I know how to get into the back door of any website and change it's code.  

JDP, I'm a freaking computer programer and website builder and designer, you idiot! Of course I know every thread you start about me, because I can open my website up, inside out and follow all the traffic  breadcrumbs back to it's origins. I can tell you exact numbers of how many people visited my site from each country. Give me a few minutes and I can come up with their home addresses.

JDP, did you know, I can see ALL your PRIVATE threads of EVERY forum, even the private ones...you know the one that ONLY members can see? Yeah. I can. Every time you start a thread about me, and send "minions" as you like to call them over here to my website, it leaves a trail of breadcrumbs, back to the forum thread you created, which I can open and read, now that you have used it to "ping" my site.

Yeah. JDP, think about. Think LONG and HARD about that.  Your private forum, it's not as private as you think...not when you link to me or any other website owned by a webmaster who actually knows how to do web analytics of their site, it isn't.

Let me tell you something about tracking traffic to your site. EVERY time you post a link, ANYWHERE on any forum, even private access ones, Yes DD, even your forum, it's not as private as you think, every time you post a link, when someone clicks that link and visits that site, a little "tracking device" called a breadcrumb, is slapped onto that site. And the owner of that site, if they know how to do it, can look at the list of all the links EVERYWHERE on the internet that have sent traffic to their site. And they can open those links - even the "private" ones to read what was said, to drive traffic to their site. 

It's called website analysis. EVERY website on the internet does this. 

And it's why, I NEVER link to the site/thread/comment or anyone who's attacking me. Why? Because what you are doing is called link baiting. It means, you attack a website and post links to it on a forum, in hopes, that the website owner, responds, like I'm doing right now, and filled their response with links back to YOUR site.

It's a very common, underhanded, dirty pool, marketing tactic, often used by small websites, to get bigger, more popular websites, to unwittingly drive traffic to their small site.

THAT is why not only, do I NOT link, to your site, but I also,  only post the initials of your name. I'm not only not going to give you link traffic, I ain't giving your keyword search engine traffic either.

So, JDP, while you are unwittingly driving LOTS of traffic to my site, but I'm not stupid enough to send traffic, back to your site. Sorry, but I don't fall for that trick.

Every time my site gets a big spike in traffic, I check the source of the traffic and JDP you are spending an inordinate amount of time obsessing over me and demanding that "minions" rise to your "defense" and boycott me to make your life better, because according to your posts on DDF everything that is going wrong in your life is my fault. YES, JDP, I a non-member can read what you wrote, because you posted a link to my website, allowing me access to read the post that sent traffic to me.

(Did you notice how I never link to the pages that are bashing me? If you want to know why, it's because I have no desire to give their site's traffic. You can read about that HERE.)

JDP. Stop. Just Stop. Think about it for a minute. YOU are the one who attacked ME. You and your 50+ "EAF Erotica Authors" attacked me. And what did it get you? The EAF forum got shut down. Now you don't have a forum to "gather minions" from any more.

Do you see what you did JDP/EA? EAF was shut down because of YOU. Think about it.

So, I'm out to get you am I? I wasn't then, but you know, ask and it shall be given. You WANTED me to talk about you, eh? Well now I am. And hey, guess what, I got a lot more fans then you'll ever have, JDP/EA.

You really didn't know who I was did you?

I feel sorry for you JDP/EA, because no forum troll who's ever attacked EelKat has ever been able to live down that flounder of a mistake.

Who here remembers ---M-O-N-K--- or ED or JB.?

ED was a famous Yahoo forum troll in 2004. He attacked one person after another. He attacked and attacked and attacked and then he targeted EelKat.

---M-O-N-K---  SoapBox 2005. He attacked one person after another. He attacked and attacked and attacked and then he targeted EelKat.

JB went to prison, as did JT, and DK.

Are YOU ready to go to prison JDP/EA? Because if you don't stop harassing me, that where you are going. You see, I don't fight with forum trolls. I contact the FBI and let them deal with the forum trolls. You are sadly mistaken if you think the FBI doesn't already know what you and LG and all your little buddies did. What do you think happened to the EAF forum?

But JDP/EA..as much as you want to be in the limelight, you are NOT the one, I'm mad at. 

No. You are just a small, bitter, angry woman, who hates men and seems to especially hate men who pass for women, and it appears that at it's core, you targeting me because I was a transvestite and it just irked you that I even exist, and you seem to have an extra hatred for the male anatomy and my books glorify male anatomy, so you just went bonkers over it. And I'm used to people like you. The world is full of people like you. You are not the one who got me mad, so you are not the one I am now "out to get" as you put it. No, that award goes to Lisa.

JDP/EA, you will go down in history as yet another forum troll who saw nothing wrong with bullying people who are different from you. You will be forgotten.

LG on the other hand...she's gonna be remembered, because she the member who made me leave Kboards. She's the reason, after 30 years of being freely available online - I took down all of my 1,371 How-To Write articles, which had been cross posted to Kboards. LG will be remembered as the bully who was the straw that broke the camel's back.

It upset me that JDP/EA wrote the posts she wrote. but it wasn't JDP/EA's posts that upset me enough to make me leave Kboards. It was the posts made by another author in response to her post that upset me. JDP/EA over the course of 5,000 forum posts, did attract quite a bit of attention. Several authors posted to ask her why she was making a fool of herself on a public forum. 

Two things upset me: 

#1: The single author who created 52 accounts to argue with all 52 versions of herself, calling me a "retard". I went through the posts and counted 70 times that she called me a retard. She used the term many more times, I simply stopped counting when I reached 70.

This went on for a long time. JDP and the 52 account author started bashing my books and slandering my name in September, and I ignored them responding to none of it. I'm used to being called retarded. I've been called retarded more then 15,000 times in my lifetime. Yes, I do keep track. I have Autism. I keep charts of everything.

What upset me and was the REASON I LEFT KBoards, was one word: pedophile

Thing #2:

LG posted in reply to one of JDP's posts:

"Everyone on Kbords has the moral duty to join me in reporting all of EelKat's posts. Let's get that pedophile off KB."

^^^THAT POST^^^

is why I left KBoards.


Name calling. LG. Really? Is that the highest mental ability your brain has? I'm the one that supposed to be the retard, remember? At yet, you're the one who stoops to name calling. 

You remember that 12 year old girl I mentioned back there. The one who was raped in church by a pedophile priest. She was me. He's the reason I carry a machete today. You don't even want to begin to know my hate filled opinions of pedophiles. How much I loath them. And that lying bitch LG, called me a pedophile. That's why I left KBoards. Because I got tired of that forked-tongue bitch slandering my name. 

You it wasn't that long ago, we Scottish Gypsies still had a law for women like that: lock their heads in bird cage and cut their tongue out. It's no wonder America is so overrun with these sorts of disrespectful, lying, gossiping, busy body women. There are no laws to punish them anymore. Does your husband know the things you say? He ought to be doing something to keep you in line. Good god! American men are such wimps, they can not keep their women in control. You wouldn't see a Gypsy woman flapping her mouth off like that. We know own place.

I ignored the posts calling me retarded. I've been called a retarded my whole life. You get used to it after a while.

I ignored the hacker. When I first discovered the hacker, on October 27, 2014, I spent a week, converting my posts back to their original state... I have Autism, I save copies of everything, I had copies of all my original posts saved. It was an easy enough problem to fix, once I'd discovered it had happened.

But I'm not a pedophile. I'm not anything remotely close to a pedophile. And I take great offence at LG calling me that horrid word.

One November 10, 2014, LG went hysterical posting on several threads. She practically started a riot. Moderator BQ came in and locked her threads and did "forum decorum" edits and warned LG that she could get blocked is she didn't "stop calling people out on the forum".

"Everyone on Kbords has the moral duty to join me in reporting all of EelKat's posts. Let's get that pedophile off KB."

That was what the posts said before BQ edited it out and warned LG to not do it again.

I didn't know LG, she rarely posted in any of the areas I did on KBoards so I rarely ran acrossed her. But when I saw that post, I opened her profile and went to her old posts and started reading them. She had a lot to say...

A LOT. And for a long time. And I don't know why she said any of the things she did about me. 

All I can say, is that LG is very sick, twisted, evil, religion crazed, lunatic. See? I can stoop to your level low-functioning brainlessness and call YOU names too.

Name calling hurts, Lisa. Or hadn't you heard?

There was so much hatred and just one post after another, "calling people to action" falsely accussing me of being a pedphile, and railing out a wild slew of hysterical, crazed, accusations.

Her posts included to say things such as:

"let's dry up her sales"

"we need to kill her career"

"her pedophile books should be banned"

"Let's destroy her career"

"people like her need to be shot in the head"

...and a lot worse...oh a lot worse...she said things, not even I would dream of repeating... she wrote a lot of details about what she thought I did and what she thought I was. I don't see how it was even legal for her to post the things she said. It's a sick, twisted mind that could even think of the things she said.

When you said those things about me LG, you forgot one very important thing: I have Autism, I don't have normal Autism.

I have Savant Autism.

I don't tell lies and play mind games like you do LG because...

I have Savant Autism.

I have one thing I can do extraordinarily well... and guess what that is? I read, I remember, and I can write my thoughts with vivid clarity and even without talking I can tell the world what you did.

I may be too retarded to do a single damned thing else, but I write. I write a lot. And I don't like being bullied. And I'm not gonna sit back and be bullied.

I don't talk, I require help to do everything, but I can write. My mind works, even though my body doesn't.

I can barely feed myself. I need help to use the toilet. Do you have any idea how disabled I am? Where do you get off calling me a pedophile?

I read the 100 most recent posts she had made and then, I just deleted all 1,371 of my How-To Articles (huge articles - most of them 10,000 to 20,000 words each). In my 7 years on KBoards I had devoted a lot of my time to helping new writers get started, including LG. She wouldn't have her writing career had I not written those articles. She is one of the authors who two years ago, attributed her success to me help via KBoards. And she repaid my kindness with making up lies about my sex life and making an active attempt to as she put it "destroy" my career as a writer.

This is a woman who does a lot of name calling. In my experience people who resort to name calling, generally have a very low IQ. I'd like to see your MENSA score, LG. Based on all the name calling you did in your posts, I doubt if you can even top 100.

Name calling is always the first sign of someone with a low IQ.

I've gotten a lot of emails since Nov 11, 2014, asking me to return to Kboards. Asking me to repost all those articles I took down. But you gotta understand something: in addition to Autism, I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder so bad that it is physically crippling. 

I was the victim of a pedophile and if you've never though that, you don't know what it does to your mind. 

My PTSD is very bad. The panic attacks frequently hospitalize me. I can't be around ANYTHING that reminds me of what happened. I can't be around men who wear BRUT cologne, because he did, or SURE deodorant, because he did.

You want to see a panic attack, try to get me in a Mormon church building and watch what happens. How long it takes before the ambulance gets there.

You don't know, how really hard it is for me to even be in the same room with a man. Not even relatives. Not even family. You don't know how bad it is, living with PTSD.

The things LG said, triggered a lot of bad memories. To the point that I had to be hospitalized in critical condition on November 14, 2014. That was a Tuesday and the doctors, didn't expect me to make it to the end of the week.

I had a heart attack and went into septic shock, because of the things LG said. 

My blood pressure was 70/60 and my heart rate 122.

Doctors freaked out because a red stripe showed up on my left arm, from my shoulder to my hand, and the veins on my neck and chest, turned purple and my chest turned blue.

I'm not sure what that meant, I don't know medical stuff, but they said I almost died.

I was still touch and go until December 27, 2014. And it's now February and I'm still not well enough to drive.

Two people died in the war on KBoards already. LG almost made it 3. I'm sorry, but my health is not well enough for me to come back. I can't take the risk of another PTSD attack like that. I barly lived through that one. Doctors say I won't make it through another.

That's why I deleted all of my accounts, everywhere, not just KBoards.

I love talking with my readers.

I love helping other writers.

But I'm not strong enough to do that in the midsts of others being mean and vindictive. It is a matter of life and death now, and as suicidal as I have been in the past, this whole event, this almost dying, did make me realize I don't really want to die, I just want the pain to stop. Beside, I have a 130 part serial to finish. In spite of the people who hate the series, I've got quite a few fans who are eagerly awaiting more of it. I can't very well write it if I'm dead.

As baffled as I was by JDP's weird "FAKE Erotica" vs "REAL Erotica" rants about something that isn't Erotica to begin with...it was nothing compared to my confusion of LG's accusation of calling the books "Pedophile Erotica"...

Wait...what? "Pedophile Erotica"? What in the heck is "Pedophile Erotica"? Good God! Does such a thing even exist? And if it did, how is it even legal? What kind of a sick mind, comes up with something like "Pedophile Erotica" and why am I being accused of writing it?

Christian Paranormal Urban Romance author LG described the Quaraun series as "Pedophile Erotica" and "Child Porn" in her replies to JDP's posts on KBoards. LG then started a thread on KBoards requesting all members join her in "reporting all of EelKat's posts. Let's get that pedophile off KB."

I don't understand why she said the things she said. And I have Autism, so I can't get them out of my head. They just keep replaying in my mind over and over again. They won't stop. That's the curse of living with Autism. You can't control the things you remember and you can forget nothing. They won't go away until you find an answer. It's maddening, trying to live with Autism, when run across something you don't understand.

The thing I don't understand, is what could have possibly have possessed her to say those horrible, mean, vindictive, hate filled things? 

It was LG's posts on KBoards which baffled me most of all and continue to baffle me. Why? Because there are no underaged characters in the Quraun series. Quaraun is 330 years old at the start of the series and Unicorn stopped counting his age after he reached a thousand years old.

Quaraun is a young middle aged Elf. At 330 Elven years, he is about 35 years old where he a Human.

Unicorn is a very old Phookan Faerie, nearing the end of his life. Where he a Human, he'd be about 90 or 100.

Quaraun and Unicorn are the ONLY two characters in The Night of The Screaming Unicorn so, how did LG come to the conclusion that this was  "Pedophile Erotica" and "Child Porn" ?

I can only assume that she was referencing the huge age difference between Quaraun and Unicorn. A Pedophile is an adult over the age of 21 who goes after children under the age of 12. There are NO CHILDREN in this book. The youngest character is 330 years old (equivalent to a 35 year old Human).

An elderly man in his 90s having a sexual relationship with an young man in his 30's is NOT  "Pedophile Erotica" and "Child Porn"  and anyone who thinks it is, really needs to sit down and just read a dictionary.

 The Night of The Screaming Unicornis listed as Dec/May relationship. Is THAT what LG is referring to? Is she so clueless as to what Dec/May means, that she just automatically assumed Dec/May mens an adult with a child?

Dec = old.

May = young.

It DOES NOT mean: Dec = adult or May = child.

The only other thing I can think of that could have inspired her to say these things is the cover art and title of one of the later books in the series: A Baby For The Necromancer (not due out until 2016)

This story, takes place after Quaraun and Unicorn have been together for over a decade and are considered a married couple, in spite of their both being male and living in a culture that does not allow gay marriage. They are able to pass off as a married couple, however, because few people are aware Quaraun is a male (he is a transvestite after all...he wears dresses, make-up, lots of jewelry, and acts like a refined aristocratic lady.)

Quaraun is, throughout the series, very effeminate, very maternal, and acts far more female then most women.

In the early volumes, Quaraun is a Lich Hunter, but in the later volumes, he has given up Lich Hunting for "helping the helpless" and after going through several villages helping families, he starts to act like a broody mother hen wanting to settle down with a family.

Quaraun no longer wants to travel, going on quests and adventures in A Baby For The Necromancer when he and Unicorn stumble across a razed Human village. 

(Keep in mind at this point, that the original FanFicion.net story I had written was a Lord sesshomaru fanfic, and Quaraun was Sesshomaru in the original. If you know the InuYasha story which Sesshomaru comes from, then you know what happens next in the Quaraun series starting with A Baby For The Necromancer )

They at first assume everyone dead, but in looking for survivors they find a Human baby still alive, which they adopt and raise as their daughter. This will be the first volume with the third primary character Pippiyata.

The remainder of the story (which as of today February 21, 2015 is at 22,000 words), is their struggle to keep the baby, when in the next village they enter, they are accused of having kidnapped her.  This event results in the injury which cripples Quaraun for the rest of his life and resulting in their settling down in a pink castle.

There are no sex scenes in this volume at all, and the story focuses largely on the struggles of a gay couple trying to adopt a baby in a society that would really like to just execute them and be rid of them. This story is inspired by actual events from my own life: we've been trying to adopt a baby for close to 20 years now and are continually denied because our lifestyle isn't "normal".

There is no "Pedophile Erotica" or "child porn" in this or any other book in the Quaraun series and I am very upset by LG's false accusations about what she just ASSUMES my books to be. 

It is obvious she has never read my books and was jumping to conclusions based on the fact that she has no clue what Dec/May relationship means, saw a book that mentioned "baby" in the title and showed a crib on the cover, and saw JDP falsely calling the series Erotica. She just jumbled her misconceptions and misinformation together and ran around flapping her lying mouth off without ever once stopping to think about the consequences of her actions.

And there were consequences:

LG: You caused a lot of problems for me. You really did. Because you lied and ran all over the internet posting comments saying that this book was what you called  "Pedophile Erotica" and "Child Porn", hundreds of random strangers started emailing nasty hate mail and death threats to me. One of them showed up in my yard and threatened to kill me and my family.

LG: Because of your lies, falsely calling me the author of  "Pedophile Erotica" and "Child Porn", vandals showed up in my yard to dump SEVEN 18-wheel crate-dump trucks of tires and pallets in my yard, which the town is fining me $15,000 for!

LOOK at what they did to our farm Lisa!

LOOK at what your busy-body, gossiping lies did:

Do you see that picture? That brook is our drinking water. We can't drink it anymore because of the oil leaching off the telephone poles that they dumped in it. 

Do you see that picture? There are so many smashed wood pallets against the door of out outhouse that we don't have a place to piss or take a dump anymore?

JDP/EA? LG? Do you SEE what YOU did to my family?

We were still harvesting our crops. Thousands of dollars of crops were destroyed by those trucks. People dumped garbage on our land, because you two lied online about me, told people I was "garbage" so one of the people who read your lies, got it into their head to dump garbage on our land.

And the thought did occur to me that LG had "other" reason for saying what she said.

People don't like transvestites. It's easier for most people to tolerate an Autistic or a Gypsy, then a transvestite.

It's also not uncommon in Christian communities, for Christian women, to use the word pedophile as synonymous with the words transvestite or gay.

I can find no reason, why she said this about me or my books, and am left to the conclusion that because she is a narrow-minded super Christina, she doesn't know the difference between the words pedophile and transvestite.

Yeah.

Just one more stereotype I have to live with because people are too stupid to know what words actually mean.

In a strange twist, on October 28, 2014 mega-bestseller Erotica author, SC joined JDP and LG, and began emailing me threats saying that "Gypsy scum doesn't deserve to live" and "we don't want your kind on our forum". And oddly, her ISP is the same ISP as one of the two ISPs that were used to hack my KBoards account. The other ISP was local. VERY local. In Biddeford, Maine less the 5 miles from my home.

Evidence now suggests that it was long time (local) stalker (unpublished author wannabe) Kendra The Silver Salamander, who then joined the band wagon by creating 52 fake accounts and using one of them to hack my KBoards account, and change all of my posts into utter chaotic raving madness, as only K/SS can do best. (This is not the first time she has hacked one of my accounts. I don't know how long this woman has been stalking me, I first became aware of it in October 2006.)  (You really need to stop harassing me Kendra. This has been going on for 9 years and I'm really getting sick of you invading my life every October. Who the hell are you? What is your freaking problem? Do you not have a life? Do you really have nothing better to do than harass me year after year after year after year? I am so damned sick of you popping up in my life every October. GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY LIFE AND LEAVE ME ALONE, YOU SICK FILTHY PIECE OF SHIT! There is really something seriously wrong with you Kendra, I am tired of you stalking me.)

This woman shows up at my home, shows up at restaurants and cafes when I am eating, shows up at the library when I am studying,  in 2012 she showed up at college and slashed my tires. She has long strawberry blond red wavy hair, is about 50/60 years old and wears big "Janis Joplin" style glasses, and carries a white poodle that she dyed purple; she believes the dog to be a dragon. We don't know her real name, but she calls herself Kendra The Silver Salamander. She claims her father owns FunTown SplashTown (this is not true, I know the people who do own the park).  She has a deep hatred for all published authors, claiming they are only published because they used psychic powers to suck ideas out of her head; she says this is why she is still unpublished, because all the published authors won't stop tapping into her brain. She appears to have serious mental health issues.  She talks to herself, repeating single phrases over and over again. "It's my turn to shine!" being her most commonly repeated phrase. She has a volatile temper and is prone to wild screaming fits while shaking her dog in your face. She is wanted in connection with the grease fryer bomb that blew up my house and left both myself and my dad crippled, in October 2006.

K/SS has no ability to grasp the fact that I am seriously disabled, and has, every October since 2006, staged anti-EelKat protests on NaNoWriMo, making wild (and false) claims about my life and my lifestyle. She is of the opinion that I am a millionaire. She believes I live in not one, but three mansions, she believes I drive several Rolls Royces.

Though she has accosted me on several occasions in various public places, she has never seen me standing or walking and is clueless to the fact that since the bombing of my house in 2006 I am crippled, I wear a leg brace, a back brace, 2 arm braces, 2 ankle braces, and walk with a cane, usually requiring the assistance of another person to sit and stand. Each time she has attacked me in person, I have been seated at a desk in a library or a table in a restaurant.

Likewise, she seems to be unaware of my Autism, or at least, the fact that I don't talk and must write/type my words to communicate with people. While I can talk, few Americans are able to understand my speech, as I have a Native Maine accent and speak Scottish English, and because of my Autism the words are jumbled and spoken very fast. As such, K/SS has never heard me speak. 

This however, has not stopped her from starting threads on the NaNoWriMo forum, every year, to "warn" people of several various accusations, depending on her moods, and usually include such phrases as "I heard EelKat say..." or "When EelKat was walking to..."

I can neither talk, nor walk. K/SS has a bad habit of telling a LOT of lies about me. And she does this EVERY October. I'm not sure how long she's been doing it. I only found out about her during the  investigation of the bombing of my house in 2006, when she had been posting "I wish someone would kill EelKat for me". A thread on which commenters joked about building a bomb, 8 days before someone put a bomb in my house. One of the commenters, went to prison. He built the bomb on K/SS's request. 

While I had been a member of NaNoWriMo since 2004, I had never been on their forum, before 2006, because I was unaware there was a forum. 

I was not aware of K/SS's continued anti-EelKat threads until 2 years later, when another NaNoWriMo member asked me, if I had seen the threads one of the MLs made each year, publically bashing my name. That was when I learned that NaNoWriMo had a separate forum for each state and the first time I visited the State of Maine forum of NaNoWriMo.

Who this woman is and why she was harassing me, I don't. 

I don't know why she follows me around both online and offline.

She is extremely obsessed with me and I don't why.

If you know the identity of this woman, please forward her information to the FBI. She has put me and my family through 9 years of hell.

Given the nature and time (October) of the attack of KBoards, evidence suggests that K/SS is the one who hacked my account. Evidence also suggests that K/SS most likely hacked JDP, LG, and SC's accounts as well.

I do not know if JDP, LG, or SC are even aware of what happened on Kboards, via their accounts. I contacted them to alert them what was going on and they did not reply.

But it was October and it was the first October that K/SS did not attack me on NaNoWriMo, which suggests it her attack on Kboards, via other people's accounts.

Especially given that one of JDP's posts said: "It's my turn to shine" and most of JDPs attack was claiming I was in competition with her, which is in fact K/SS's most frequent accusation used in her NaNoWriMo posts. 

And the fact that the hacker, used my Gypsy ancestry and made lots of references to my being retarded, and targeted my books with October publication dates. All things with K/SS has done, every October since at least 2006.

Plus the hacker went wild, trying to "back up" JDP's accusations, but posting via my account, lots of wild "I'm a millionaire" braggings. Making it very obvious that both my account's posts and JDP's account's posts were being written by the same hacker.

Kendra don't seem to understand that an adult with Autism, can't take care of themselves. They can't get jobs, because no one will hire them. I average 400 job applications a year, every year for more then 20 years now. I write for a living because I don't have any other option, and contrary to what other authors have said about me, I've never made more then $2,000 in a single year. Not once in my entire life.  YES, my TOTAL yearly income is LESS THAN the average person's MONTHLY income.

And the $2,000 thats the MOST, a lot of years it's only $1,000, and I've had several years under $600. Yeah, $50 a month. It was okay when I had a house, but a grease fryer bomb took the house, and now because of the Kboards Incident, if I don't come up with $15,000 before April 2015, to pay for the clean up cost of the vandalism damages, the town says they are going to take the land. The land's all I have. I don't even have enough money to buy, food, I'm only surviving because I farm the land. I'll starve to death if they take the land. The people on KBoards, they don't know what they did. I don't have a place to park the motorhome if they take the land and I don't have enough money to put gas in the motorhome to move it. I don't even make $2,000 a year and I need $15,000 in less then 60 days.

And these people don't even care, that they've done this to me, because I have Autism and to them, I'm not worth living. I mean, they want me dead. They said that. They said "people like her should be shot in the head". That's the kind of people I'm dealing with here.

I don't know who this Kendra person is, or what her problem is, or why she is so hung up on me, but she has staged one of these weird online and offline freak-out attacks every single October since 2006.

If anybody reading this knows who this Kendra person is, PLEASE, forward her information to the FBI. She IS wanted in connection to the attempted murder of my family, via a grease fryer bomber, which was put in our house October 2006. That was the first time we were "introduced" to this Kendra person. She has been stalking my family for 9 years. She was the one posting death threats on the NaNoWriMo forum, requesting that someone kill me, days before the grease fryer bomb was put in our house. Both my and my father are crippled and can no longer walk unaided because of the bomb.

I have been homeless and living under a 8x6 tarp, ever since Kendra and the grease fryer bomb that blew up our house October 2006. Yes, even during winter, snow, and blizzards. 

The bomb resulted in $3million in medical bills, which are still not yet paid and that is why I have been unable to rebuild a house these past 8 years.

I have contacted all 4 of these authors asking why they chose to attack my books in the way that they did, but only Kendra responded and she's quite proud of what she did. As usual she says "It's my turn to shine!"  as her reason  for what she did. JDP, LG, and SC have refused to comment on their harassment, cyber bullying,  stalking, trolling, offline vandalisms, drive by shootings, and death threats.

I don't understand people who do things like this. What is the point? What is their motive? What is their goal? What drives them to do this sort of thing? I don't get it at all. It makes no sense to me on any level whatsoever. 

And how does somebody have enough free time to spend that much time doing this sort of thing? Do they really have nothing else to do? Are their lives that empty that the only thing they can find to do is harass people via the internet?

Jolie: What the fuck? 5,000 forum posts about how much you hate me? What the friggin fuck? 5,000 forum posts? In less then a month? Are you just online 24 hours a day?  Are you completely insane? God, I so gotta make you into a character for the Quaraun series.  I feel so sorry for you. To have that much time on your hands, you must be so lonely. You have absolutely no one in your life do you? You know what, maybe, instead of of trolling forums and raving insanity at fellow authors, you should try turning the computer off once in a while and going outside, maybe meet a person. You have heard of Humans before right? You know other people like yourself. Outside. In the sunlight. 

Lisa: What the fuck? Please tell me what denomination your holier than thou ass strolled out of so I can be sure never to attend one of it's church services. Good God! Have you ever even read the Bible? TIP: Try Proverbs, especially that bit about the evil woman who ran from house to house, gossiping. NEWSFLASH SugarPlum: I'm an ordained minster, with a church and congregation, I'm turning what you did into a sermon, on wolves in sheep's clothing, who PRETEND to be Christian, while committing the sin of busy-body, gossiping, spreading of falsehoods and telling lies. HOW DARE YOU! You despicable piece of shit. Next time you feel like calling somebody a pedophile, find out who they are.  You vile bitch, may you burn forever in Hell. I was a victim of child rape. There isn't anything on this planet I hate worse then a pedophile.

Kendra:  Go jump off a cliff. Please. Shoot yourself. Drown yourself. Hang yourself. I don't care. Hey, here's one, next time you hire somebody to build a bomb, blow yourself up. Yeah, I'm extra pissed at you. I used to have bum leangth hair. But you know how it is with bombs. I wear wigs now, and I had to have plastic surgery to reconstruct my face. It's why there are no close up photos of me since the bomb that blew up my house and left my dad in a coma. I am so sick of you. Every single October for 9 years, there you are, in my life. And I have no idea who you are or where you came from. Kendra, normal people don't do things like this. Nine friggin years? Really? Do you even have a life? Are you EVER not online stalking me? Are you ever going to stop showing up at my house, at my friends houses, and my relatives house? Will you find somebody else to obsess over for a change? What the hell is wrong with you?

Scarlett: Hitler is dead. You know that right? It's illegal to murder Gypsies now. Or hadn't you heard? It's also illegal to threaten to kill Gypsies. But hey, wave that white power flag high as you want. You can just kiss my non-white Scottish ass. I should probably go put on my kilt so I can moon you better, eh? What is you hate more? That I'm Scottish or that I'm a Gypsy?

Initially when this first happened, I gave them the benefit of the doubt, assuming that whoever had hacked my KB account had likewise hacked their accounts. This was why I contacted them, to alert them to the fact that my KB account had been hijacked and I suspected their accounts had been hijacked as well.

HOWEVER...JDP has posted the same attacks on at least 3 other forums that I am aware of, indicating that she is in fact the person behind her KBoards posts. And the stuff she says, is so similar to the stuff Kendra says, that I'm starting to wonder if JDP is not just YET ANOTHER of Kendra's many accounts.

Were JDP/EA, LG, and SC's accounts hacked? Did the person who hacked my account, also hack their's and use their accounts to attack me without their knowledge? Or was it really JDP/EA, LG, and SC doing these things? I don't know. Like I said, I contacted them and asked: Were you the one who said these false accusations about me and my books, or was someone hacking your account and pretending to be you and using your account without your permission, to say those things?

Like I said, there was a hacker on the loose. My account was hacked and posting stuff without my knowledge or consent. I was not online when this happened: I was in the hospital having surgery. I was still in the hospital recovering from surgery when an offline friend visited me and asked me what the fuck had happened to my KBoards account. It was the reason I logged back into KBoards on Nov 11, 2014 and deleted everything.

More than 50 newly created anonymous ID accounts were created in September, all in the space of 3 days. Every one of those accounts claimed to be what they called "an EAF Erotica Author" - those are the 50+ accounts that did the most damage, to the most authors.

There were 3 other "named" authors involved in the attacks on my and my books, they did contact me back: they had no knowledge of what was going on at KBoards, they had not logged into their accounts in over a year. Their accounts, where also saying things. They were members who had left KBoards in 2013, and had suddenly appeared back on KBoards all the same week. (Several long time members commented on why so many old long gone members returned the same week.) Their accounts were hijacked and being used by a hacker to attack other authors, without their consent or knowledge. So it does remain a possibility that JDP/EA, LG, and SC themselves were not responsible for what was said via their accounts during these attacks.

However, they did not respond. Which leads me to believe that their accounts were NOT hacked and it WAS them saying those things about me, otherwise, they would have responded to deny their involvement in the KBoards Incident. If they were innocent of these crimes, they would have responded to clear their name, for only the guilty have reason to hide.

Whoever did it: either the authors whose names were listed on the accounts in question, the a hacker who hijacked said accounts: it doesn't change the fact, that is what a very violent incident and 2 authors died, others were physically injured in in physical offline attacks, some lost their careers and incomes, and many were terribly terrorized and traumatized. 

Who the person(s) was behind this attack on these authors, they need to be held responsible for their actions and made and example of, so that something like this never happens again, not on Kboards, nor any other forum.

If you did do these things, what you did was despicable, I want an apology from each of you, published just as widespread and vehemently public, as you posted your lies about me. And: you owe the Town of Old Orchard Beach, Maine $15,000  in clean up costs, to removed the 12' tall, 30' wide, 175' long pile of garbage that is now sitting in our yard.

If you did not do these things and someone else used your accounts to do them, what they did was despicable, it is your responsibility, to find out who it was who impersonated you and used your accounts to do these things, and help me take them to court, because they  owe the Town of Old Orchard Beach, Maine $15,000  in clean up costs, to removed the 12' tall, 30' wide, 175' long pile of garbage that is now sitting in our yard.

I think one of the problems with these people is, they don't see me in person. they only know me online, and they are deceived by the fact that I can type my words to "talk" coherently, and I'm an adult, so they don't stop and think what my having Autism means. 

They think I must have Aspergers and just be a normal person with quirks.

Because I can type they don't think I'm actually Autistic.

Because I'm an adult, they don't think I could possibly have real Autism.

One of those forum trolls even said that.

He said "You aren't ACTUALLY Autistic. They can't communicate. They can't think."

Another said: "You don't have REAL Autism, like my son has, you only have Aspergers."

And what do they judge that by? My books. My articles. My forum posts. They think because I can type and because I'm an adult, that I'm not Autistic.

NEWSFLASH: When you're son reaches 18, he's still gonna be Autistic.

A lot of people see Autism as a childhood illness. There's all kinds of help for parents of autism, and teachers of autism, and day care providers of autism but soon as that autistic child turns 18, that it's. Their are done. There's no more help for them, like POOF the Autism went away because they are adults.

People don't seem to understand that an adult with Autism, can't take care of themselves. They can't get jobs, because no one will hire them. I average 400 job applications a year, every year for more then 20 years now.

And why will no one hire me? Have you ever seen the movie Rainman? People don't hire me because I am like THIS:

I talk just like that^^^

I act just like that ^^^

I rock when I stand just like that^^^

I write for a living because I don't have any other option, and contrary to what other authors have said about me, I've never made more then $2,000 in a single year. Not once in my entire life.  YES, my TOTAL yearly income is LESS THAN the average person's MONTHLY income.

And the $2,000 thats the MOST, a lot of years it's only $1,000, and I've had several years under $600. Yeah, $50 a month. 

It was okay when I had a house, but a grease fryer bomb took the house, and now because of the Kboards Incident, if I don't come up with $15,000 before April 2015, to pay for the clean up cost of the vandalism damages, the town says they are going to take the land. The land's all I have. I don't even have enough money to buy, food, I'm only surviving because I farm the land. I'll starve to death if they take the land. The people on KBoards, they don't know what they did. I don't have a place to park the motorhome if they take the land and I don't have enough money to put gas in the motorhome to move it. I don't even make $2,000 a year and I need $15,000 in less then 60 days.

And these people don't even care, that they've done this to me, because I have Autism and to them, I'm not worth living. I mean, they want me dead. They said that. They said "people like her should be shot in the head". That's the kind of people I'm dealing with here.

I have Autism, so they think doing this sort of thing is okay. They think I don't have feelings, or I'm too stupid to know what they are doing. They don't think I'm hurt by what they do.  When they get done bullying me they have friend they can go off with. I have a dog, a rabbit, and 14 cats,  and a husband in his 70s who has alzheimer's and it's been 13 years since he remembered he had a wife. It's a good day when he remembers my name. He was my primary caretaker and no I'm his. I require 24 hour adult supervision. I've been without a caretaker for several years now. It's been 8 years since I had daily meals. Or really meals at all. I can make a SubWay sandwich last 5 day, because I have to. I'll end up 4 days  without food at all if I don't.

The thing is...no one cares. No one. Not one single person on the entire planet. There are 368 people in my family. There is an aunt with 8 husbands and an uncle with 5 wives. I have an uncle who makes $2million dollars a year. My mother was #8 of 11 surviving children (there were 12 born alive and 3 stillborns.) 10 of the 11 had at least 4 children each wife, though most had more then 6 each wife. I have an aunt who gave birth to 15 children. I have 64 first cousins, each of whom has 2 to 12 children per wife. Yeah. There are 368 people in my family and every one of them knows how I live and why. I have Autism so they don't care. In their own words I am "the child of Satan", they believe that Autism is demon possession.

Of course about half of them also believe HaleBop would take them to heaven. They are members of a group called Heaven's Gate. My extended family has been involved in 5 murder-suicides. A group of them kills themselves every time a comet flies over head. Usually it's only 4 or 5 people at a time. 37 people died in the biggest one though. They are now waiting scientists to discover a comet called Wormword. They say all the other comets were the wrong ones and Wormwood is the one they are waiting for next. If scientists ever find a comet named Wormwood, there'll be about 200 people die next time.

I survived one murder-suicide when I was 14. It's why I have no contact with any of them any more. They are crazy and I don't want to be around people who think it's okay to put poison in your drinks. I don't like them, even if they are family. They really scare me a lot. I don't like watching people die. I don't want to watch people die again, that why I'm glad, they don't help me, because I know what they are like. If they helped me, they'd use that against me to take my freedom away.

I may not have a house, or a normal income, or enough food to eat, but I have my freedom. They nailed the windows shut and put boards over them and put locks up and down the outside of the door. I don't like being put in a room with nailed windows and locks on the door. I don't ever want to live with them again. It is very hard to live on my own, without caretakers, but I will NEVER go back to them.

Do you know what Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is like? It's worse then the Autism.

Do you know, that when I was a kid, I used to drink Kool-Aid. Tang was my favorite drink.

Did you know that I as hard as cooking for myself is for me, that since I was 14, I've not allowed ANYONE to touch my food. I won't eat food they made. I won't eat food they've bought. I buy my food, separate, and I keep it locked in the car. I'm the only one with a  key to that car.

They poison the drink mix power. I have a massive phobia of powder, drink mix, colored drinks. Since I was 14, I haven't drunk anything but water. Did you know, that my phobia of of someone poisoning my drink is so bad today that if you even look at my drink, I'll dump it out. You don't even have to touch it. And I won't accept a drink from anyone. No one. I bring an outside drink with me to restaurants, because I can't even buy a drink at a restaurant. It's that bad. That's what being the survivor of a murder-suicide did to me.

You want to see the room? Oh yes. I have pictures. I have pictures of everything. My grandmother gave me a camera, the relatives didn't know I had it. I kept it hidden under my skirts. I have pictures of everything they did.


The boarded up window.

The floor below the boarded up window aka "my bed".

And a few of the many locks on the doors (the door with windows - that's bulletproof plexi-glass) 

When you tell me, that you can't help me, because I have 368 people in my family, and I have to ask THEM...you are telling me, to go to people who did THAT^ to me. 

I took those pictures in 2010. I did go to them for help. In their minds. I have Autism, and therefor I belong in that room, begging god for forgiveness. Begging god to remove my demon. They believe I have a demon in me. That's what they think Autism is. I'm in my 40s. They were locking me in that room as recent as 5 years ago.

In the Quaraun book, Quaraun tells Unicorn about how his uncle locked him in a room for days without food or water. I can write scenes like that because they happened to me and I know what it feels like to be alone and sared in a room with no light and windows boarded up and nailed shut, and 5 padlocks on the outside of the door, and sitting on the floor for days, being terrified. I can write Quaraun's fear, because it was my fear. I felt it.

I know what it feels like to have people in your life, that you think, love you, and then have them turn their backs on you and turn out to be nothing but self serving monster incapable of loving anyone.

Whenever people find out how I live and they ask "Don't you have relatives, can't you get them to help you?" They don't understand what my relatives are like. You don't know what the Heaven's Gate group is like if you've never lived with them. You don't know what it's like living with people who believe that sickness and disease are demon possession. You don't know what it is like living with people who think God is an alien living on Planet Kolob and are waiting for him to send a comet to take them to Kolob. You have no idea how terrifying it is, every time the news announces a new comet in the sky, and all you can do is sit there and watch people around you killing themselves and each other and threatening to kill you. They've done it 5 times now. And they are geared up and ready to go out 200 people strong if WormWood ever gets here.

Do you want to know what kind of people my relatives are?

The clan is divided today, there's not 368 in a single group now. 200 of them left and went to Bangor. I'm glad they left, they were the Heaven's Gate members. It's been nice and peaceful, since they've been gone. They went to Bangor in 1997, after the big HaleBop event. They are waiting for Wormwood, they said HaleBop was the wrong one. That's why not everyone from Heaven's Gate is dead. Only a few of them actually believed  HaleBop was the right comet. They went to Bangor, because they claim, that by filming Thinner in our yard here in Old orchard, that Stephen Kings gave them an open invitation to squat in the woods behind his house, and Maine squatting laws say that if you live on land for 20 years, it's yours, and they are fast approaching 20 years. They'll own that land soon. Those of us still in Old Orchard, we are very glad the clan is divided now and we hope we never see the ones that now live in Bangor, ever again. If you ever want to see them, go to Bangor, find Paul Bunyan, drive til you get to the grocery store, turn, drive til you get to Stephen King' house, keep going until you find a dirt road, follow it until the road ends. Get out of your car and start walk - don't plan on the car being there when you get back,  it'll be stripped to the frame and all the parts sold by the time you come back - keep walking, for about 20 minutes, into the deepest, forest you've ever seen...you will know when you get there. They'll see you before you see them, and you better pray you can outrun their guns. I'm not sure if they still have the guns - very illegal military guns - the compound was raided about 2 years ago. Police. FBI.

The FBI calls them "The Scottish Traveller Crime Family of America" - I mentioned we were Gypsies, right?

The FBI took their guns and about 30 children out of there, several of my first cousin went to prison.  The ones not in prison have been sending me death threats via FaceBook ever since. You've seen them. I know you guys have because several of you have been commenting on them. They are my cousins.  While they are on FaceBook, they live in a gated compound with barb wire separating them from the world, there no houses on the compound, they live in cars, trucks, a horse trailer, tents. They wouldn't know what to do with a house. They have a bunch of old discarded mobile home trail park houses, they are not water tight. The rooms they lock children in are in those.  

Sometimes they lock them in old rusty oil barrels with only a small pinhole in the cover for air. Ask me how I know. Ever notice all the "iron maiden" scenes in the Twighlight Manor series, told from the point of view of the Autistic character who is locked INSIDE? Yeah. I know what that's like too.

My family is insane. How's yours?

They don't understand that all those death threats they keep posting on my FaceBook wall are being read by so many people. They can't even begin to comprehend how many people there are in the world. They also don't comprehend, that all those death threats are illegal, just like they don't see anything wrong with breed cats and dogs for food. Oh yes. They started doing that, 3 months ago.

Our clan was still practicing cannibalism in 1937. My grandfather used to joke and say that he was still doing it in the 1950s. The group in Bangor... each wife has 10 to 15 children, but they don't have that many adults. The children never grow up in that group. They don't report the births. They don't go to hospitals. One woman claims to have given birth to 26 children. Where are they? That was in the 1970s. I meet the children, I saw them. I know she had 26 children. I talked to them. Children never reach adulthood in that group. The adults, say Silence of the Lambs is their favorite movie. They make jokes about eating babies and children all the time.

That's why I write about cannibals. I grew up with people who had practiced cannibalism. My grandfather used to talk about how snapping babies necks was easier then snapping the neck of a rabbit. He said they tasted like pork.

That's why I'm a vegetarian. I stopped eating meat after Grammy Helen died. I never trusted meat to not be someone I knew again. At her funeral, they were not upset that she died, they upset that she was dead so long, that they couldn't eat her. That's what they said at her funeral.

I'm the one who reported them to the FBI. They call me a traitor, because they say I should be putting family first. But, I don't think locking children in rooms with boarded up windows  and threatening to eat them, counts as "putting family first". Even if their aren't eating people, they don't stop talking about it. And they terrorize those children with it. The children have firk shaped scars from being stabbed with forks.

One uncle would hold your arm down, while another uncle would stab a fork into your arm, then take a steak knife and start sawing your arm, between the fork tines. I have scars on my arm, from them doing that to me.

That's what my uncles are like. That's why in the Twighlight Manor series I wrote Roderic, being tortured like that by his uncles. That's why in the Quaraun series, I write Quaraun being tortured like that by his uncle.

That's why they send me death threats on FaceBook. Because when I went to Bangor, to visit them and saw them doing to their children the same things they had done to me 40 years ago,   I forwarded all my photographs to the FBI and told them how to find the Bangor compound. The FBI took all their guns and all their children and some of them went to prison.

I don't care if they were family. They were hurting children and that's wrong. Bullies MUST be stopped. It doesn't matter who they are.

Stabbing a child with a fork and threatening to eat them, is bullying. I told them that. And I told them if they didn't stop I'd tell the FBI. They didn't believe me. They laughed.

But I did. And they took them away, and I can find a song for ANY occasion...here's another song I used to play on my 45 player, that is very appropriate for the topic at hand:

(Ask me about record collection. It's nearly as big as my book collection.)

They said: "Oh they know we are just teasing. They know we won't eat them."

I look at the child. Bawling his eyes out, with blood dripping down his arm. Wounded and terrified. You don't do things like that to a 4 year old! They don't know you are teasing! All they know is you just stabbed with a fork and said you were gonna eat them. The child is standing there with blood dripping from a fork wound. You should be taking them to the hospital to get stitches, and you don't even give them a band-aid. Why?

I asked. Do you know what he said?

"Well, my dad did worse then that to me, and I lived. I didn't need no band-aids."

Oh yes. I remember your father. David Henry Atwater, Chief Patriarch of The Royal Highland Clan. King of the Gypsies. Applewhite's buddy-buddy. Living out their in "The Kingdom" (his term for Salt Lake City.) I remember him and the things he did. I survived his little visit here to Maine. Remember? Five others didn't though, did they. They died. Horribly. I wasn't supposed to live. REMEMBER. My parents called the police on you people, and the police got there, before I died. I was only 14 years old, but I have Autism. I never forgot. I'll never forget. Your father. Your evil, evil, MONSTER of a father. They tortured me. They tortured my 5 friends. The police interrupted them, so I lived. And you hate that I know. 

That's child abuse! And just because your father did it to you, doesn't make it right to do it to your children too! You bastards from Hell! How dare you hurt a child!

Your father abused me too, remember? I know what he was like. My grandfather, your father, he was a monster. A vile, sick, perverted monster. He put me in the trunk of a car. Canton, Maine. OMG! The pile of bones. HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of bones. Piles and piles and piles of them. Everywhere. Piles of bones, taller then me. Six foot tall piles of bones. Leg bones. Arm bones.  I was there in Canton Lake, Canton, Maine. I saw what he did. I was almost added to that piles of bones. They were going to kill me too. My bones almost ended up there in those piles, if the police hadn't arrived. I know what he put you through. I know what he did to you. He did the same thing to me! Your father was a monster, and he should have been in prison. 

How dare you, carry on his legacy of child abuse, when you yourself was abused. You know what it felt like, how dare you put your own children through that. I'm not going to let you hurt those children, just because that's what your father did to you. He did it to me too.

I was abused by you people, and I remember how much it hurt. I will NEVER allow you to hurt another child.

I will do everything in my power to stop EVERY bully EVERYWHERE. Family. Stranger. Online. Offline. I don't care.

If you are a bully: YOU ARE EVIL!

You destroy lives!

Family or not, a bully is a bully. Bullies are people who hurt other people on purpose, because they think it is fun to do. Because they don't care about hurting people.

It's wrong.  Hurting people is wrong!

That is the reason you see Gypsies in Maine making a distinction of who they are, why say things like "We are the Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach, The Ricker Clan"

David Henry Atwater and George Ricker, lead two rival Gypsy clans. For over 100 years they have feuded. The Rickers have lived on the land in Old Orchard since 1530. The Atwaters "claim" to be Scottish, but they also "claim" to be descended from Daivd Henry Atwater (1600s) of Kent, England.  The Scottish Gypsies are very short. All of the Atwaters, men and women are over 6 feet tall. They do not disassemble Scottish Gypsies at all. They immigrants to Nova Scotia in the 1830s.  They were boat dwelling Gypsies back them, living on a Junk with blue sails, they made a living by stealing food off merchant ships and selling it to small towns up and down the coast.

In the 1890s/1920s, led by my Grandfather David Henry Atwater (and his father Henry Morris Atwater, and his grandfather Capt John H. Drake) they became bootleggers, they made moonshine in Nova Scotia, boarded it on the blue sailed Junk and dropped the cases into the water off the end of the Old Orchard Beach Pier. The pick up person would fish the crates out, go to Palace Playland, unscrew the tails of the merry go round horses and hide the bottles inside the horses, until Honey Fizt came up from Boston, to buy the moonshine.

My grandfather had a coat, a big full length mink, it was big enough for a 200lb man to wear, and he was really skinny. Inside of the coat, was a double lining. When he unzipped the lining, it was rows of pockets inside. On the nights Honey Fitz came up from Boston, Grandpa would unscrew the tails of the carousel horses, take the bottles out, put them in the many, many pockets of his coat and walk across town to the meeting place, wherever it was that night.

He had a Robin's Egg blue car, and when the government came to try to catch the Canadian Gypsy bootleggers, they chased grandpa driving that car, all the way back to Canada. 

Because they were Gypsies and the Ricker's were also Gypsies, the American government assumed we know them. At the the time we didn't. But that is what started the feud.

In the 1940s The Atwaters left Canada for Canton, Maine. That's where the original compound was and whenever they continue to have their "meetings". 

In the 1960s The Atwaters invaded Old Orchard Beach, fully armed in an all out war on the town. They claimed they were taking over the town, and the end result was, in 1968, police officers from dozens of towns, and the entire state police force, and several military men (marines people said) came to Old Orchard Beach, gather up the Atwater Clan, all the Romanies, and all the Irish Travellers, about 600 families all together and marched them at gun point out of the state. When they reach New Hampshire, they were meet by most of that's police force, who marched them across New Hampshire, until they reached Vermont. At the Vermont border they were meet by Vermont police. They march across the country in this fashion, until they reached the first to NOT great them with an army of cops: Utah. They settled in Ogden, Utah. It was shortly after this that my grandfather meet Applewhite.

Not all of the Atwaters ended up in Utah. One of the Atwater girls defied her father and married one of the Ricker boys. They were my parents. The violent and hysterical Atwaters were infuriated. They waged war on the Rickers. The feud known as 458. When I was born, the first child to be both Ricker and Atwater, the battles got worse. When I was 3, people started to realize something was really wrong with me. When I was 4, three of the Atwater uncles, began  their verbal abuse of me. 

Because of the joining of two clans (Gypsies rarely marry outside their clan) their were now two Matriarchs: Grammy Helen Ricker and Grammy Eva Atwater.

Grammy Helen, was against the feud. Grammy Eva, who was an Autistic Kickapoo Native american Indian, was terrified of the feud. My two grammies banded together against the Atwater men, and they are the only reason I reached adulthood. Because of my Autism, Grammy Helen (who was EXTREMELY Scottish and spoke Gaelic and is the reason I have the accent I have) decided I was "Faerie Sighted" and at 3 years old, began teaching me all the plants of the yard, all the spirits of each plant, and all their uses. 

Grammy Helen declared that I was going to be the next Matriauch and trained me for that. The Atwaters responded to call her a witch and to say that she was teaching me witchcraft. Their mother Grammy Eva, responded to help Grammy Helen, declaring, that I would replace BOTH Matriarchs, uniting the two clans under one queen. Grammy Eva, is the one who named me "EelKat" when I was 3, because I had a "strange" infatuation or connect to eels and cats. She said they were my spirit animals. "Empress EelKat" is how both Grammies referred to me, whenever the Atwater men were around. They did that to annoy them.  They called me "Wendy" otherwise.

Grammy Helen died when I was 8, Grammie Eva when I was 17. My Atwater uncles became very violent after that. They think nothing of hitting me, punching me, breaking my arm, beating me with rocks. 

David is the worst. David, son of David, whose son and grandson are both David, he's the Patriarch of the Bangor compound.

There is a David A., David B, David C, David D, David E, etc. It's hard to count how many child the Bangor Atwaters have, because they have a son and name him David and then they have another and name David, and another and name him David...no birth certificates. They ALWAYS for more then 50 years have a child named David.  I only know of 1 that ever reached adulthood. 

David, he's the fork guy, he also gives his children puppies and kittens. I think that's the thing that bothered me most when I visited the compound. All the piles of dead dogs and cats all over the yard. He gives his children pets, lets them get attached, and if the child is "naughty", he makes them hold the cat while he shots it in the head.

He learn that from his father David Henry. Grammy Eva had a Great dane named Duke, one day, he got mad at her, shot the dog, chopped it up, boiled it, tied her up, and force fed her dog to her. That's my grandfather, the man who bragged that snapping baby necks was as fun as snapping rabbit necks and that babies tasted like pork.

THAT, is why the Ricker Clan, The Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach, are quick to make the distinction, that we are NOT affiliate with the Atwater Clan the Scottish Traveller Gypsies of Bangor, known to the FBI as the Scottish Traveller Crime Family of America. 

Unfortunately, I alone, am a Ricker who is also blood relative of the Atwaters, because my mother was from one clan and my father was from the other clan. 

The Ricker Clan, The Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach are Carnival Gypsies and Farmers. We do not travel. We've been settled for 500 years.

The Atwater Clan, are English Traveller Gypsies who claim  to be Scottish. They travel all over America. They have base camps in Utah and Maine. In the past they've had base camps in Wyoming, Nevada, Minnesota, Illinois, and Florida. They are criminals. They are dangerous. They think nothing of killing people. You know them when they come through, they squat on farms, they strip every bit of copper they find in every house in the town, they steal bikes, they strip cars to their frame. They sometimes call themselves The Avenging Angels.  They are waiting for a comet called Wormwood to take them to visit god on Planet Kolob.

The FBI, sends out a  pamphlet to police departments, in areas suspected of being in their path, when they are on the move. The pamphlet "How to Deal With Scottish Gypsies", lists all the warning signs to watch for. It tells how to tell the difference between Roma, Irish Travellers,  and Scottish Gypsies. It contains warning which say "Most dangerous of all gypsy groups" and "most likely of all gypsy groups to respond with deadly force" and "skilled swordsmen" and "armed with machetes" and "suspected cannibals".  

I have a copy of it. It's fairly accurate for the most part. It's always interesting reading the FBI reports on my extended family. They are classified by the FBI as the #1 most dangerous Gypsy group in America, and they are my uncles. 

And they periodically showed up in my life, and made hell of my life, every time they did. They were squatting on our land in Old Orchard in 1996, while they were doing their HaleBop thing.  It took us 7 months to get them out of our yard. 7 months of non stop absolute hell.

And if you ever run across them: run. Just run. Don't stop. They WILL kill you. 

It's WHY you hear Scottish Gypsies, get very upset when white men, confuse us with Scottish Travellers. Because they are two completely different groups. The Scottish Travellers descend from the Celts and Romans, while the Scottish Gypsies descend from the Pict and Sicilians (Persians). They are completely different bloodlines, whole different DNA chain.

The Scottish Gypsies shun the Scottish Travellers and avoid any association with them, viewing the brief union of the two clans as a serious mistake.

******************


So, when social workers say, they can't help me, because I have family out there, go to them, now you see why I don't go to them. You also begin to understand why I rescue cats and who I rescued them from. And then you also understand why I have a phobia of forks and only eat with plastic spoons. And why I carry a machete and won't let anyone closer then 5 feet to me. Why I have a phobia of milk and K-aid and Tang.

Did you know I walk to the ocean, to bathe fully clothed and without any type of soap, so that I won't get locked in the bathroom and so I don't have to risk somebody holding me under the water in the tub to drown me. Drown me because I have a demon and they have to kill it.

That's what kind of people my uncles are. That's the things they do to me. All those phobias I have, every one of them, and there are hundreds, are because of something my uncles did to me. My uncles are bullies to the extreme. And they are LDS/Mormon High Priest, with temple recommends, every one of them. They say that having the priesthood, gives them the right to pass judgement on whether or not I deserve to live. They said god told them I was a witch, possessed by a demon and must be punished until I cast my demon out.

They don't believe in doctors or disease or illnesses. They say those things are fairy tales created by Satan to deceive the world. The say doctors are evil servants of Satan, who use witchcraft to take "god's punishments" away from the wicked.

I don't want help from them. If they help me, they'll make me live with them again, they'll torture me again, and I may not be normal because of my Autism, but those people are absolutely insane and I don't ever want to see them again. 

I'm surviving, barely, but I'm not thriving, and if something doesn't change with my living conditions, my ability to get food...my health deteriorated badly these past 8 years, since the bomb. I've been living under a tarp, yes, even now with 7 feet of snow and -48F temperatures. Winters are cold in Maine. I'm typing mostly, right now, to keep my fingers circulating, so they don't freeze stiff. Doctors say I can't take these living conditions much longer. Two, three years tops. 

That's why you see, the Quaraun series set in a quasi-Medieval setting and not in current error. Because, I don't think many people in current error believe in doctors being witchcraft and illness being demons, like my uncles do. But because I grew up with people like this all around more - 300+ of them - I write Quaraun in a time period where he too grows up around people who believe those things.

And Quaraun has hundreds of strange phobias. And it baffles the other characters, the things he does, just to avoid the things he fears. In Vampire Leprechaun, they are travelling along, and they are not far from where they want to go, and they reach this point, where they have to cross a brook, and the brook is only a few feet wide and, where they are at, only a foot deep. They can easily walk across it, and are about to, when Quaraun has a meltdown screaming fit. They can't get him across and they don't know what to do, because they don't know what the problem is.

They end up, having to find another way to get to where they want to go. They are only 2 or 3 days from where they want to be, but the phobia, Quaraun has, is so bad, that they end up backtracking and taking a different road that bypasses and goes around, and adds an addition 2 weeks to their getting to where they want to go.

Have you ever seen Rainman? Watch this scene:

I do that. ^^^ You can't get me on a plane. You can't get me in a car, unless you can prove to me that car is safe. 

Quaraun does that ^^^^ that is what you see happening, several times in Vampire Leprechaun. Quaraun is just having one melt down after another, the whole story.

That's what is going on, in Vampire Leprechaun. A fear that to others, looks utterly irrational, but to Quaraun, is completely crippling.

I write him doing these things, because he has Autism, and he's doing the same things I do in those situations.

I'm an adult with Autism. My income has never topped $2,000 a year. Because of those two things, I'm not eligible for medical insurance, so only time I'm getting any treatments anymore is when I get bad enough to have to go to the ER.

I think that is one of the major things which people don't understand. They see that I can write coherently online and they simply do not realize, how severely disabled I am if they have not meet me in person.

A few years ago, my caretakers had a copy of my credit report printed up. Their goal was to attempt to teach me how to read it, in hopes that if I ever was given a job, perhaps I could be taught to do my own taxes. Well, when they got the print out in the mail, they found on my credit history: 3 repossessed cars, a forclosed house, 7 bank accounts in default, and 32 credit cards that had been run to max limit. They were very upset, because they said someone had done identity theft.

I'm not entirely sure what any of that means, I just know that's the things that were on the list and what they called it. So, they explained to me, that someone, somewhere, somehow had gotten a hold of my social security number and was using it to open fake bank accounts and fake credit card accounts. Of course then they had to explain banks and credit cards to me. They didn't get very far with that before they gave up.

They said it was easier for them to just fix the mess, then to try to explain to me what a credit card was, because according to them, I don't possess the mental ability to comprehend what a credit card is, how it works, or what it means to have had someone use identity theft to get a credit card in my name.

And they are probably right. I mean, there's a reason I don't go to stores and buy things or use money, I mean, I don't even know how to count money. I mean, I understand the green paper stuff is supposed to have more value then the metal coins but I don't understand that either. How can paper be worth more then metal? That makes no sense to me at all. And then they try to explain to me, how paper money with pictures of Ben Franklin on them are worth more then ones with pictures of George washington. Uhm...okay. Why? Other then the picture on it, they otherwise are the exact same paper aren't they? They said "Well, the ones with Franklin are more rare." Okay. Whatever.

The more illogical thing though is that the credit cards, which are plastic, they say are worth the most money of all because you can put more money on them and use them over and over again, so you don't have to carry around heavy coins or stacks of paper. You just have one card that pays for everything. But then they also say you have to pay money to use the cards, so you are really only renting the card it isn't yours. The bank puts money on it and you have to pay the bank back later. 

Ah. Like a loan! They said, yes, like a loan. Well that I understood, because I'm a Mormon and the Mormon church teaches that loans are evil and no one should ever get into debt to anyone else. No good ever comes of loans, the Church says. Well, once I figured out that credit cards was a loan, then I got mad at whoever it was who put all those credit cards on my name, because I've never had a loan for no one. Loans are evil and I want nothing to do with them.

I still don't understand money and why people want it. I mean, you can't do an absolute thing with it at all. You can't eat it. You can't use it to keep warm. It doesn't protect you from the weather. It just makes no sense to me at all.

My caretakers keep telling me that I should be trying to make more money, but I'm not really sure why. It makes no sense to me. I just do not understand it at all.

And yet, before the bomb, I had a normal life.  Or normal by Gypsy standards, I'm told by Americans that my life has never been normal if compared to American society.

MOST of my life was normal. It got interrupted by various, not normal events. Hurricane Bob. Hurricane Katrina. A murder-suicide that killed my 5 friends when I was 14. A couple of crazy, sadistic, violent, child abusing uncles, who thankfully only were in my life for a few brief periods. And a grease fryer bomb blew up my house. Somebody ran over my grandmother's house with a bulldozer. And one of my cars got stolen out of my yard. But, other then that, the rest of my life was normal.

The uncles, who, were ... I don't know what to call them... cultists in the worst sense of the word, I think may be the most accurate word? They were a sub-group of Heaven's Gate. They are going to visit on a comet ride. They think stabbing children with forks and threatening to eat them is normal and okay. They don't believe in doctors. They think Autism is a form of demon possession. I don't know what to call them.  They are so far beyond crazy. But for the most part they stay in Utah. They only come to Maine a few times a year. They raise Hell every time they are here, but they only stay a week or two, usually, and so most of the year, my life is as normal a live as someone with Autism can have.

Until the bomb. I've been able to recover from everything else. Bounce back. But the bomb took my house, and I don't have money to build another one, and that's caused a lot of problems with my health, because I've lived outside for 8 years.

The guy who built the bomb, got 2 years in prison. He's back out, warm and dry, in a house. He was warm and dry while he was in prison too. I haven't been warm or dry in 8 years. It rains or snows pretty much every day in Maine.

And that's exactly why I'm writing this series. Because I am just sick and tired of people doing stuff like this to me and thinking it's okay to do things like this to me, because I have Autism.  That is why I am writing a story about a character who is severely Autistic and has been bullied to a breaking point and sets out to kill everyone who bullied him.  The world needs to know what it feels like to be bullied that much, that long, that often, to that extent.

I think the fact that I am very slow to respond accounts for people thinking I don't feel anything. Because by the time I do respond, they've already left, so they don't see me respond.

I don't have normal reflexes or reaction times. If you hit me, I probably won't start crying or screaming in pain for at least an hour. That's why you don't see immediate response from me online. I have to print out your forum posts and comments an reviews and emails and read them several times over a period of several days in order to be able to fully process and understand what it is, you are saying to me. I usually have to have my caretaker read your words to me, multiple times, and often he has to then get a dictionary and read the definitions of the words you use and then explain them to me. After which I will them Google the stuff you say and try to see if I can figure out what it is you might have meant and which emotion it is, you were trying to trigger in me.

I think that is the thing a lot of people don't understand about Autism. 

If you tell a joke - I don't laugh, because I don't know why it was supposed to be funny, because I don't understand what you said until I've had time to research it.

If you bully me with the intent of hurting my feelings - I don't cry or get upset or angry, because I don't know why it was supposed to be hurt by what you said, because I don't understand what you said until I've had time to research it. I will get upset a few weeks later, after I have had time to research your words and the meanings.

Why do you sleep under a tarp if you own a motorhome?

A READER ASKED THE FOLLOWING QUESTION: I’m confused. Don’t you own an RV? Why do you sleep under a tarp if you own a motorhome?

ANSWER: Town ordinances. You can't sleep in anything that has wheels on it at night. I use the motorhome during the day. It's my office where I do my writing. My kitchen where I do my cooking. But at night I have to sleep outside in the cold, snow, wet, and rain because the town says it's safer sleeping under a tarp outside with no protection from the rain and snow, then sleeping in the warm dry soft bed in my motorhome. They send the police by at night to check and make sure no one is sleeping in the motorhome at night.

They want us to put a house up, but I don’t have enough money to do that. It took me 4 years to save up the $2,000 I paid for the motorhome. We don’t have electricity or sewer or running water and I don’t have enough money to buy food, that’s why I don’t eat every day and the days I do eat, I don’t even eat a full meals worth, let alone eat more then once a day.

I think that’s part of why the KBoards incident upset me so much, because whoever hacked into my account and rewrote my posts, they said, while impersonating me to make it look like I was saying it, that I was a millionaire and they were saying stuff like, in one post they bragged that I had made $140,000 in a single month! Good god! I wish! Damn! I’ve never had that much money in my entire life.

I’ve never made more then $2,000 in a single year, that’s $80,000 TOTAL in my entire lifetime. I mean, here I am, sleeping under a tarp, cold and hunger, I don’t have enough money to buy food and, they are logging in on my account and pretending to be me and posting sales figures like that?

What the hell? Why did they do that? I don’t understand this at all. What kind of a person does something like that? And why? I mean, what possible motive did they have for doing it? I can’t figure that one out at all. It makes no sense to me at all, I don’t understand what they could possibly get out of doing this at all. It’s just mean and stupid and childish and idiotic and hateful and hurtful. I guess some people are just mean by nature and don’t have to have a reason for hurting other people. 

I can sleep in my motorhome when I'm on the road, like when I'm travelling on a book tour to do book signings or going to Autism awareness conventions or car shows or festivals or stuff like that. But when I'm at home parked on my land, I have to sleep outside under the tarp because that's all the town will allow.

Not allowed to use the toilet in the motorhome either. Nearest public bathroom is a 1/4 mile walk.

Before the tarp, I had a wigwam, that took me nearly a month to build, and that was warm and dry just like having a house. But even though we are Native Americans on our ancestral grounds, the town made us take it down. After that I built a teepee and lived in that, town made us take that down too. After that I put up a yurt, which again was warm and dry, but again the town made me take it down. Bought the motorhome February 21, 2012, police showed up in the yard the next day. Didn't even own it 24 hours before they were there wanting to see the paperwork and reciting town ordinances.

It's been very difficult because the cold affects my joints. I have chronic tendonitis in both arms, both wrist, my back, knee, and hip. Cold damp weather make it worse, which slows down my ability to work, which in turn slows down my income, thus makes it harder for me to save up to build a house. If I had a warm, dry place to sleep, I could get more work done and increase my income and get a house rebuilt faster.

No one has helped us with getting a house. The bomb destroyed everything in our lives. It's been very hard. I'm doing everything on my own now. I'm the only one trying to get a house back up, no one else cares to get a house back up. I wish I could sleep in the motorhome at night and be warm and dry, so that my joints wouldn't hurt so much and then I could do more work and have more income and get a house built back up faster.

There are more then 3,000 families in Old Orchard Beach living in RVs. We are the only ones the town makes sleep outside of the RV on the ground under a tarp.

Oh well, at least I can write indoors during the daytime once again, and my hands don't go stiff from the cold before a few paragraphs anymore.

But you must understand that we are a peaceful people, we prefer to obey the law, no matter how silly or ridiculous the law may be, rather then fight it. And we are used to sleeping outdoors under the stars. It is not an uncomfortable thing for us to sleep this way. During the warm dry months, I prefer to sleep outdoors anyways and often did, even back when we still had a house to live in, before the bomb blew it up.

How do you survive blizzards or tornadoes or floods living outside like that?

READER QUESTION: How do you survive blizzards or tornadoes or floods living outside like that?

MY ANSWER: Not well, but, when you have no options, you can't choose to do better can you? I use clothespins (a whole big bag of about 200 of them) to hold the edges of the tarp shut to keep out the wind and rain. Inside of the "tent" I have taken several blankets and layered them, to build up walls of insulation. On the ground I had built up a foundation out of several bucket loads of sand, and than used my futon (a Japanese mattress) to sleep on. I have three sleeping bags, one inside of the other, and slept at night with all of my cloths on and three coats, and slept inside the tripled sleeping bags. What clothes I wasn't wearing, were stuff into every crack and corner to keep out the cold.

This season so far (2015), we’ve had:

January 23 = 3”

January 25 (Blizzard Juno) = 34”

January 28 = 6”

January 30 = 21”

February 3 = 3”

Today February 5 = 6” so far.

That’s 73” (6 feet) of snow so far this week. And around here it starts snowing in October and snows 2 or 3 days a week every week until about middle of April. We have had years when we as much as 21 feet of snow.

People (white Americans) laugh because I wear these huge fur coats, they are always teasing me when I go out in public about my fur coats but, Honey, I don’t have a nice warm dry house to go home to like you do. I live under a tarp. And it’s been below zero for the last 4 weeks. Do you have any idea how hard it is for me to type this? My fingers are red and stiff and very numb, and it’s really hard to type when the temps get below zero. I mean, I’m sleeping outside at night in this. 

During Blizzard Juno last week, the temps were down to -32F and the wind was 75 MPH. The coldest day in Maine history was in February 2007, another blizzard, when temps were -48F. I’m living outside in these storms and the only thing between me and the cold, is a tarp and this big fur coat. If I didn’t have this fur coat, I would have frozen to death last week during Juno. This coat keeps me alive. I have a motorhome, but the town won’t let me stay in it at night and at night is when the winds are the highest, the temps are the coldest and the snowfall the deepest. At night is when I need to be in the motorhome most of all, but they send the police around every night to make sure no one is inside the RV after dark, so I have to sleep outside under the tarp. 

It’s really hard on my hands, because I don’t have gloves. they are too expensive I can’t afford a pair of glove. I don’t have any boots either, I just have a pair of slippers. I type at night, like right now, because it keeps circulation moving in my fingers. It’s why you see my publishing way more articles and stories and books in the winter months then in the summer months. I don’t have to type so much in the warmer months, but right now, like tonight, it’s -18F right now and so I have to just keep typing so that my fingers go freeze. Some clansmen have lost fingers and toes because they didn’t keep their feet tucked lotus position against their belly up under their furs at night and because they fell asleep and stopped moving their fingers. That’s why I type so much. I’m an author, I can’t risk losing my fingers and in weather like this, that’s a big problem, so I just type and type ad type all night long no-stop, so that I don’t get so cold that my fingers fall off, like has happened to others in the clan on nights like this. I wish the town would let me stay in the motorhome at night. It’s warm in there. It never gets below 30F in there and most days it stay hot as summer in the mid 50Fs. I mean, 50F in there, those are freaking summer temperatures,  I don’t need shoes or coat at all in there. I with the town would let me sleep inside at night. It’s so cold and wet out here and my fingers hurt so much right now. It’s really hard to type right now, because I can’t bend my fingers. They are stuck in this half bent position and they feel like they are stuck full of needles. It really hurts, a lot. And it’s only -18F tonight. This is a warm night. And we’ve got another 3 months of this weather before the temps get back up to the 40Fs.

I wish they hadn’t bombed our house. It was easier back then. It wasn’t what Americans call a house, it didn’t have insulation or a foundation of stuff like that. But it did kept out the wind and it almost never got below 40F inside.

In the summer and fall, we have to deal with the thick seaweed scented fogs that rolled in off the ocean every night. You don't really notice fog, until you have to live outdoors in it night after night. It's like having this big wet sponge wrapped all around you for hours. It soaks everything just like it had been a rain cloud. Fog is really weird. Over the months, however, I grew to love the smell of fog and it's rich seaweed and crab scent. I think that is the one thing I would miss about being in the tent. I really love the smell of the ocean air. Of course being outside all night, all year, I found out that I love the sounds of hearing the ocean waves all day and all night. Indoors you don't really notice the sound of the waves or the sound of the gulls, but out under the tarp, you hear them steady all the time. 

At the beginning of this, I had me, my dog, and 9 cats. A few months in, the pet food poisoning happened and I lost 5 of my cats in the space of 2 weeks. After that it was me, my dog, a skunk, and 14 cats. Weird, how 9 minus 5 equals 14, but it did, and I am at a loss as to how to explain it, but one morning shortly after the deaths of my other cats, I woke up to find several wild feral cats tucked into the sleeping bag with me. They moved into the tent and I have had them ever since. There had been a blizzard that night, and we were buried under 9 feet of snow. 

That cats and skunk came in to get out of the storm. That was the week I went 12 days without food - it was because there was so much snow - 3 blizzards back to back, one each day for 3 days. I kept a shovel under the tarp next to the sleeping bag, and a 2x4 braced under the center of the tarp to keep it from smothering me. Every hour or so, I'd wake up and dig out an opening in the snow to keep air under the tarp. It took 5 days to shovel out from the tarp to the driveway. It was the biggest blizzard we have had since the one in April 1981. The skunk left after the storm ended and I got a path shovels out. But the cats never went outside of the tarp til spring, and after that, they just stayed with me. They are strange cats, because they are wild feral cats and they'll kill any human that gets near them, no one can get near these cats, they are like mini tigers, but, they curl up on me and sing to me all day long, ever since we got trapped under the tarp together during that blizzard. They are a weird pack of wild cats and somehow adopted me into their flock. I've since gotten them all spayed and neutered and they still live with me.

There was one wild night of a lightning storm. That night, required me to take the cinder blocks and tie them down all along the edges of the tarp in order to keep it from flying away.

It's hard once the snows come, though, and I have to use boards to support the center of the "tent" in order to keep the heavy snowfalls from collapsing the tent on us during the night. During the storms I keep a shovel inside the tent, and shovel my way out, and take the snow off the roof of the tent about every 15 minutes or so, to keep it from getting too heavy on the roof.

Once the snows came I found I had new problems, when I awoke one night to find a baby skunk tucked into the blankets along with me and the cats. He had apparently been separated from his family in the storm, came in the tent for shelter, and got snowed in. He couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 months old. Once the storm was over a few hours later, he left.

One night, my blind albino Siamese cat, Utopia, was asleep on my feet when something big, with huge long sharp claws, reached through the tent, grabbed him, and ran off with him. My dog Buddy fought it off, and it dropped Tope and ran into the woods. It was originally suspected to be a Marten or Fisher, but later events would tell us that a wolverine was in the area, killing everything in it's path, including more than 70 of our chickens, a few deer, and a moose, and it is now believed that it was the very same animal which attacked Tope that night. It's scary when you find really big animals all torn up in your yard like that. I work up one morning, crawled out of the tarp, and there it was, a great big moose leg all chewed up, about 20 feet from the tapr. Scared the heck out of me. After the attack Tope had no fur growing on his side, his ear is a mangled up scarred mess which in no way resembles an ear, he is missing all of his teeth on one side, and there was a huge scar running under his eye and down his face. Tope, never again, slept on my feet, and to the day he died in 2009 Tope refused to sleep anywhere except wrapped around my face like a fur scarf.

I'm in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, and I live on the beach. I am homeless. At night the temperature drops to -15*F BEFORE wind chill factor. Including wind chill factor the temps are often as low as -42*F (and the ocean freezes over when the temps are like that!) This year it's pretty warm and stays around 0F. In 2008/2009 winter is not that bad, it's staying around 30*F. We got a ton of snow this year, but it's not as cold. In 2007/2008 it was colder. My first winter homeless (2006/2007) was the worst. In 2006, Maine had it's coldest winter on record since 1927 and I got frost-bite that year, and that's when I started looking for a job. Not to make money, but to have a place to stay warm.

No one cares that you are cold, so long as they are not. I learned that fast too. As long as they are safe and warm and dry, to hell with everyone else in the neighborhood.

It got very cold that year. Our first snowfall came in October of 2006, just days after the bomb. By December, the temperature plummeted to 0F. February of 2007, saw -15F temperatures, before wind chill factor. Living on the beach meant that wind chill factors brought the temperature down to a blistering -40F at night. Once the temperature dropped, my hands started to crack and turn to blisters. It became very hard to use them for anything. Today my hands are extremely sensitive to touch and I go through a family sized bottle of Gold Bond hand cream each week, just to stop the skin on my hands from cracking. Fact of the matter is my hands (and my feet) suffered from frostbite and I don't know if that will ever heal. But who care, you know, it's just a Gypsy with Autism, right?

No one cares about adults with Autism, no one cares about Gypsies, and I'm both, so who cares about me. That's the way of the white man's world. 

Wait...you were one of 73 authors who were attacked? You mean this wasn't just someone singling you out?

A reader asked: Wait... you were one of 73 authors who were attacked? You mean this wasn't just someone singling you out? Why? Did these authors have anything in common?

Yes. That is why I refer to it as the KBoards Incident and not the EelKat was Attacked Incident. This was a fairly large, fairly wide spread attack, that was posted on 3 forums and several social networks.  The attack on me was rather small in comparison to what was done to big name authors Viola Riviera and Hugh Howey, who were also hit hard in this attack. Other authors who left KBoards during this time because they too were attacked, included Ella Casey, Russell Blake, Joe Konrath/Jake Kilborn, Tattooed Writer, and Joe Nobody (and many others). The bigger name authors like them, were hit hard.

The attack started in February 2014, with the biggest name authors each being attacked one at a time. As each big name author left KBoards, the attacks moved on to the next biggest name on the site. Three of the big name authors hired lawyers and started a lawsuit, with their lawyers creating KBoards accounts to post a one time post announcing their client was advised to leave KBoards and sue any and every KBoard member involved in the attack.

What did they have in common?

THIS:

In February 2014, 101 authors on KBoards gathered together to compile a "best of KBoards" anthology. Initially only the biggest name authors were on the list.

By May 2014, 40 of the biggest name authors, pulled out of the project and their lawyers sent cease and desist orders to the forum trolls.

While the attacks were initially thought to be mostly on KBoards, a slew of anti-author blogs and websites, mostly aimed as Hugh howey, creator of the anthology, began to show up all over the internet. WordPress and Blogger were each swamped with hundreds of new blogs being created, demanding the boycott of various lists of author names.  In every case the only thing these authors had in common was the KBoards Anthology.

By May, Hugh Howey had removed his name from the project, though his story was still published in it.

I was one of the authors, perceived to be a big enough name, to get picked to the initial round up of authors who had been picked for the project.

By May, the outcry against the authors involved in this project was so bad (with many unpublished authors stating that a TRUE KBoards anthology would include a selection of EVERY KBoards author - even the small names and the yet unpublished) that the entire project was canceled, with one of the authors involved committing suicide over the attacks on her books, following shortly after the death of her beloved daughter.

The suicide sent shock waves through KBoards and resulted in dozens of authors dropping out of the project. One author was so distraught that she unpublished all of her books and deleted her Amazon sellers account, stating that she had written a character suicide in one of her books, but she had never had a friend commit suicide before and she had no idea how much it hurt, to see a friend kill themselves. Three other authors, all having written books with character suicide, followed her example and likewise unpublished their books and deleted their Amazon seller accounts.

Just days after this author's suicide, a second author died. He had been sick for a long time, and the stress of the attacks put him in the hospital. He died that night. More authors left the project.

By the end of May the project was officially called off.

The forum trolls shifted their attack to a mega sized thread known as The Serialized Romance Thread, where all the pulp fiction serial authors (myself included) hung out on KB. As they had done with the authors involved in the KBoards Anthology Project, the trolls started picking off authors one by one starting with the biggest names first.

In June, the KBoards Anthology was reborn as a new version of the idea was born. A submission call went up, and the first 101 authors to submit a story, would be accepted, no judgement on content, no judgment on previous sales and big name status, just first come first served to anyone and every one. The stories were to go in the book in the order they were received. I was submission #18, because mine is story #18 in the published book.

In August the Serialized Romance Thread and all it's 50+ pages was removed from KBoards, following a horrendous and violent offline attack of nearly a dozen of the authors involved in that thread.  One author was hospitalized when another author showed up at her home and beat her face in with a broken bottle. Nearly every author posting to that thread left KBoards in the days to follow.

In all, between February 2014 and November 2014, more then 700 active members (both readers and authors), including 73 big name authors, left KBoards, due to having been attacked during the KBoards Incident.

This was the worst case of authors behaving badly, I have ever seen. Because the authors doing the attacks were calling themselves "EAF Erotica Authors" the EAF Erotica Author Forum was shut down by it's webhost.

Yes. The KBoards Incident was a very violent forum war that left the forum and went offline, in which two authors died, and several others end up in the hospital, some very serious injuries. Like I said, what happened to me, was nothing compared to what happened to some of the other authors who were attacked. In all 73 authors were targeted.

I've been on the internet since 1997. Until November 2014, I was an active member of more then 300 forums. I shut down all my forum accounts the same week I deleted my KBoards posts. This is the worst case of cyber bullying I have ever seen and a very clear indication that people think just because they are hiding behind a computer screen, they think they can do and say anything they want to, and they don't think they will get caught or be held responsible for their actions.

People died.

Those trolls need to be held responsible for that.

People were hospitalized. Those trolls need to be held responsible for that.

People had their homes and property broken into and vandalized. Those trolls need to be held responsible for that.

Authors lost their careers and income. Those trolls need to be held responsible for that.

This needs to stop.

This stupid, idiotic, psychotic, senseless, culture of hate,

NEEDS TO STOP!

CYBER BULLIES NEED TO BE STOPPED BEFORE MORE PEOPLE DIE!

We authors are supposed to be helping each other. That's what the KBoards Writer's Cafe was made for. So we could help each other. What is wrong with you people? You are supposed to help your fellow mankind!

Look at yourselves! Do you see what you people have become? You're acting like a pack of rabid dogs. This is herd mentality at it's worst. You people ought to be ashamed of yourselves. You ought to be hanging your heads in shame.

KBoards was a wonderful place. Authors and readers gathered together. Talked, shared stories, had fun. You people turned it into a war zone. And nobody's fighting back. Can't you see that? It takes two to fight. They're not fighting back. They don't want to fight with you.

All it is, is you attacking, over and over again. Attack after attack on first one author and then the next. You are a terrorist. Nobody is joining your fight. Nobody wants to fight with you. That's why I call these attacks and not fights. Because nobody, not one single person on that site is fighting back. They ignore your attacks until they can take no more, and then they leave. 

They don't want to fight, and they are tired of you hurting them. So they just leave. Or die... 

LOOK at what you did. You upset that woman so bad, that she killed herself. She didn't just leave the forum, she left life. Have you no shame at all? What is wrong with you people. How can you live with yourselves, knowing you've destroyed lives?

Do you realize that every author you attacked: they were most helpful authors. They were ones showing others the ropes. They were the ones writing the how-to articles. They were the go-to authors, when new authors needed help. And they are all gone now. Every single one of them. Many of them deleted all their helpful information of getting started when they left.

There are no authors left on KBoards who are willing to write long helpful posts to help the new authors get started. You destroyed KBoards for everyone.

You remember how I used the Twighlight Manor books to launch a protest against Proctor & Gamble, got the financial backing of Avon and Estee Lauder, incited 30,000 PETA members into a riot, and successfully got Proctor & Gamble's Animal Test Labs shut down...yeah, I'm doing that with the Quaraun series to get cyber bullies put in prison... oh, boooy, should you people REALLY have found out WHO I was and WHAT I do to people like you. I'm the little girl who 40 years ago took on the world's largest corporation head to head...did you really think I would let you get away with what you did? 

Have you never heard of the professional protester known as "The Voice of The Voiceless"?

You really didn't know who I was did you?

Let me introduce myself:

I'm EelKat, Voice of the Voiceless, The Sea Witch of Old Orchard Beach, owner of the World's Most Haunted Car. 

I live around the corner from Stephen King.  Stephen King think's I'm one of the most fascinating things he's ever encountered. He can't stop writing about me.  I'm the reason he features mute scary Autistic girls in his stories. I'm the reason he features cars that are haunted. I'm the crazy Gypsy women he  frequently features in his stories.

I'm the matriarch of the Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach (known to most Americans as The Scottish Mafia)...you know, the family King based The Thinner off of and in whose yard they filmed the movie?

Oh....and I own the car that supposedly killed 14, you know, eat them, a Gypsy sideshow circus attract billed as The World's Most Haunted Car... I believe King called it Christine in his book and movie.

Do you know how many millions - MILLIONS - of people come to my land every summer, to see the Gypsies of Thinner, to touch the REAL haunted car, the see the REAL mute Autistic little girl that inspired the characters of Rose Red and Chinga?

...and read whatever I chose to write on the 20' tall 40' wide 1950's billboard that stands in our yard....how do you think, I gathered so many followers, so fast, for the Proctor & Gamble Boycott?

That big sign in my yard, THAT is how this page of my website received 14,000 visitors it's first week up: http://www.eelkat.com/KBoards.html Because right now that URL is what is written on the billboard.

And it's written on the sides of my rhinestoned car. Did you know that my car averaged 100 stranger photographing it each every day. That URL is forever branded right across everyone of those photos.

Do you have any idea how much power that billboard in my yard has? Every tourist who comes here sees it, reads it, and I'm very, very, VERY famous. We are stephen King's Gypsies, Thinner was filmed in our yard, and we own the REAL Christine. A LOT of people come here. You can't even begin to imagine the amount of people who are going to know what you did.

You bullied the wrong person Sugar Pie.

I AM "The Voice of The Voiceless", the little girl who took down Proctor & Gamble. You destroyed KBoards and you hurt my friends. Did you really think I would stand back and just watch you hurt my friends?

KBoards had a 10 year history of being the safest and most peaceful forum on the internet, but not anymore, thanks to the 50+ "EAF Erotica Authors" and their massive attack on the site.

I don't know what kind of a hostile forum environment you "EAF Erotica Authors" were used to but damn, just get the fuck off of KBoards before you kill somebody else.

I have seen a lot of forum wars over the years. I was a member of Absolute Write Water Cooler for 9 years, during the hey days of the war that happened there in 2005 for crying out loud, I was one of the moderators of the Squidoo site & forums for 7 years, and I was a member of the SoapBox for 5 years - I've seen some pretty bad forum wars, but the KBoards Incident is one of the few forum wars, I've ever seen, where people left the internet to track down forum members home addresses and violently attack them in person.

This was a case of some very unprofessional, selfish, jealous, small minded, petty authors, attempting to hurt other authors. 

Two people died during the KBoards Incident. 

I am unaware of a forum war ever costing someone there life before. This was a VERY SERIOUS situation and it is my belief, that the trolls involved, do belong in prison and should be prosecuted. People died. Other were physically injured. Several were deeply emotionally distraught and upset. Some authors lost their careers, they were so scared of the trolls they unpublished their books in terror.

JDP/EA, LG, SC, and Kendra Silver Salamander: you belong in prison and I intend to see to it that you and everyone who helped you do this go there. You peices of shit called people to action, and boy did they take action. PEOPLE DIED ON YOUR ORDERS YOU SHIT HEADS! Do you know what that makes you?

Whoever did it: either the authors whose names were listed on the accounts in question or the a hacker who hijacked said accounts and did it in their names: it doesn't change the fact, that is what a very violent incident and 2 authors died, others were physically injured in in physical offline attacks, some lost their careers and incomes, and many were terribly terrorized and traumatized. 

Who ever the person(s) was behind this attack on these authors, they need to be held responsible for their actions and made an example of, so that something like this never happens again, not on Kboards, nor any other forum.

I have a lot of medical bills that need to be paid, I want to know who to send the bill to. Haven't totalled up yet but they include surgery, hospital stays, lots of tests, MRI, ...there's one radiology bill that $4,300 just that one bill alone. And I'm not out of the hospital yet. You're looking at close to $100,000 here.

And the Town of Old Orchard Beach says you own them $15,000 in clean up cost for the vandalism.

An I'm not the only author with medical bills because of this.

And there are two author families with funeral expenses that need paying. Do you have any idea how much a funeral costs? When my grandfather died in 2004, his coffin cost $5,000, the burial plot was another $3,000, and then all the other stuff: his funeral cost well over $20,000.

Ans then there are all the authors who hired lawyers - lawyers aren't cheap. You owe those bills too.

Or and let's not forget that several dozen authors cited having to have counselling. I don't know about theirs, but all the counselors around here charge at minimum $200 an hours. A lot of authors, that's a lot of hours. 

You owe a lot of people a lot of money. I can see over a million dollars on that list. Do you have a million dollars? Better prayer you do, because you'll go to prison if you don't and then you'll still have to pay all those authors' bills anyways.

What it boils down to is, someone was REALLY pissed off that the KBoards Anthology was made and published, and targeted every author who had any connection with that book. And they ought to be ashamed of themselves for thinking that this sort of thing was all right to do.

At the start of this, at the very beginning, back in February: there was a new member, who joined KBoards and started a hate campaign against Hugh Howey. They created anti-Hugh Howey websites and blogs. They said that Hugh Howey had done a contest of some sort, I'm not sure what exactly the contest was, but they said they had entered and had the highest votes for their entry and should have won, BUT, they said that Hugh Howey awarded the winner to "one of his writer buddies on KBoards". They threatened several people.

 Back in February, they made several threats, calling the members of Kboards "Hugh Howey cheerleading fanboys" and saying that they would "stop at nothing to destroy every one of you".

His or her account was banned by the mods, s/he, created several most accounts during those first few weeks and ranting a lot of wild insanity and crazy accusations at pretty much every member on the forum. The mods subsequently banned each account, and eventually they stopped coming back.

HOWEVER, the KBoards Incident started just days after that person disappeared off KBoards. It is my belief that whoever THAT person is, is the the one ACTUALLY behind the attacks on KBoards. They were very, very, very angry at Hugh Howey. They said they wanted him dead. They said they wanted all his friends dead. They said they would do everything in their power to destroy the career of Hugh Howey and "all his author buddies".

This person returned to KBoards in September 2014, when the contest actually ended, and they threatened Hugh Howey again, and again threatened "all his author buddies." Apparently, this person felt that anybody who had an account of KBoards must therefor know Hugh Howey because he had an account on KBoards.

Outside of his posts on KBoards, I don't know Hugh Howey and I don't think anybody on KBoards does. It is my belief that this person is angry enough and dangerous enough to track down Hugh Howey and "all his author buddies" to physically hurt them and possibly murder them. And I think something needs to be done, to find out who this person is, and put them in prison before they do any more damage.

The attacks started in February, after this person first started raging against Hugh Howey. 

The attacks heightened and went out of control, in September, when this person returned to KBoards with more outrage against Hugh Howey.

It appears that because Hugh Howey was in the KBoards anthology, that this person, assumes everyone in the anthology was what they termed "all his author buddies".

That was when the 50+ new accounts were created and a zombie's hoard of long "dead" author accounts were suddenly revived, with authors we hadn't seen in years, suddenly posting again.

That is also when the attacks started on me and my books. 

I believe all of it, goes back to that person, who was really angry at Hugh Howey, because of some contest, which they said Hugh howey had done and they claimed they should have won.

I also, don't think that this person cares that 2 people died, that others got injured, that some lost their careers, and that the entire environment of Kboards has turned from a peaceful loving place to a fear filled war zone.

The KBoards Incident was nothing short of a TERRORIST ATTACK. What those trolls did to those authors was unspeakable. Some very serious crimes were committed and the criminals need to be held responsible. People need to start taking this situation seriously.  The authors who were hurt in this need to come together and stand up against the bullies. Don't let them hurt you anymore. There are people who care about you. You are not alone in this. You don't deserve what happened to you: none of you do.

 The members of KBoards are out of control. They need to be stopped before they hurt someone else, before someone else dies.

My opinion of the trolls involved in these attacks, and every other person like them is this:

May the cheerleading dogs march ever onwards.

(What they did to you and yours is not forgotten.)

The KBoards Incident:
FAQ: What did the hacker do that caused you to remove 1,371 articles off your website?

Written March 26, 2015

A reader asked: You mentioned a hacker. What did the hacker do? And how did the hacker access your account?

ANSWER: How did he/she access my account? Well, I do know the answer to that. Once I realized that my Kboards account, my Twitter account, and my WordPress blog had all 3 been hacked and all sorts of weird posts were being made on all 3 of them. What did the 3 accounts have in common? They all had the same log-in password, which in each case was a very short and easy to guess password, as all 3 of these accounts were made nearly a decade ago with simple 4 letter passwords were all that was needed to be "secure". Yes, that was very stupid of me. I should have changed the passwords and made them stronger, I never did, because...who hacks someone's forum account?

You don't think you need a strong password in a place like Kboards, I mean, who's crazy enough to hack an author's forum account, right? It's not like I'm some big name author who needs a lot of security or anything. Damn, most people don't even know I'm an author. They know I'm a "witch" (though witch is a term I have never used to describe myself, which should have tipped people off I wasn't the one writing this stuff), they know I founded the Proctor and Gamble Boycott, they know I build art cars, they know I'm an artist but when it comes to my books, I'm pretty unheard of. You think, "It's never gonna happen to me, I'm just a no-body, who would bother?" but it happened and I don't know why.

When I first realized my account had been hacked, I corrected a few dozen of the posts on the Kboards back to their original state and intended to do this with all the hacked posts, but the next day all the corrected posts had been rehacked, and a very snark "Haha! You can't stop me!" message had been added to the forum signature.

That was when I realized the hacker was hacking still and it had not been a 1-time hack. I corrected some more posts, and then watched to see what happened and a few hours later, my signature was changed again, to yet another snarky post, one which said something about buying 2 new MORE Rolls Royces just to spite other authors. (And while the Rolls Royce is my favorite car and this is a widely known fact, I do not own even one.)

A few days later, my Twitter feed suddenly got bombarded with posting dozens and dozens of book promos for Kboards member DW's newest book. I never promote a book I haven't read and I rarely promote books at all, so when 100+ identical posts for a book I never heard of, suddenly flooded my Twitter, I realized, this was more then just my Kboards hacked.

That same week a relative stopped by and asked what had happened to my WordPress Blog, they said I had spent the week posting a lot of really weird shit that didn't make sense and was out of character for me. Well, I hadn't posted a blog post in about 7 months, you know, because I was paralyzed for 5 months and then another 8 months learning to use my arms and legs again, so was not able to type, so there shouldn't have been any new posts on my blog at all. I went and checked and yep, every day for weeks a dozen or more posts had gone out and they were the same type of hate filled, spiteful, snarky crap that was being posted on my Kboards account.  

I realized at that point that it was more than just my Kboards account that had been hacked.

And for the record, I NEVER promote another author's book unless I have first read said book, and you will NEVER see me post the link more than once.  

I contacted DW about this and he had no knowledge of why his books were being blasted at a rate of dozens of spam posts an hour via my Twitter account. He went to Kboards and posted an "apology thread" to let folks know there was a hacker on the loose and that he suspected his account was also hijacked, but the mods (or maybe the hacker?) deleted that thread within the hour of his posting it.

I was trying to figure it out what was going on when I realized: "OMG! My Twitter account uses the same password as my Kboards account! I bet my WordPress must have used that same password too."

I went looking for my list of passwords for all my 300+ forums accounts and found I had used the same password on several of them. I started checking all the ones that had that same password and many of them had been hijacked. So this was not just my Kboards account, it was fairly widespread. The hacker had actively set out to track down as many of my accounts as they could to take them over and impersonate me and do EXACTLY what K/SS, JDP/EA, LG, and the 1/52 EAF authors had all threatened they were going to do: make an active attempt to "destroy her career and dry up sales" which they apparently planned to carry out by hijacking my forum and social network accounts to post a bunch of wild crazy shit and thus ruin my reputation.

Whoever did this was very evil person.

I can't figure out who would do something like this. It iis the sort of thing RMA and his best friend JB would (and have done in the past) but RMA died in September 2013 and JB is in prison. (Hacking bank accounts and embezzling tens of thousands of dollars is what he went to prison for. He is a hacker and he did hack my accounts multiple times back in 2007 to 2009. I did not find out his identity until the police traced his bank account hacks in 2011 and discovered he had been the hacker of my accounts as well. He had been hired by RAM to do the hacking.)

As far as I know, no one other then Kendra has a motive to do something like this, and like I've said before, I have no clue who this Kendra person is, or what her motive is, but she's been doing stuff like this for 9 years now. She is just the most baffling person I have ever encountered. Everything that is wrong with her life, no matter how big or how small, she lands in my yard screaming and yelling and claims it's all my fault. I don't know why. I simply can not figure out the logic behind her accusations at all, but then again, this IS the woman who also claims I am telepathically sucking ideas out of her head to prevent her from writing and getting published. And she fully, 100% believes that accusation to be true. I've thought Kendra was a nut for a while now, (I mean, what sane person storms into a restaurant and threatens an author, while she's having a meal with her friends, telling them "It's my turn to shine, you better not publish another book before I do!") but her accusing me of sucking ideas out of her head, kind of confirmed it.

I changed the password on my Twitter account and immediately the bombardment of spam links to other authors' books stopped posting.

I then changed my password on Kboards and the posts stopped being changed. At that point I set out to correcting the posts back to their original form, but then, while I was doing that I got side swiped by authors JDP/EA's and LG's raging fury, (which in all likelihood was the hacker, retaliating from losing access to my account) and their posts stirring up several other members to join in the herd mentality attack with them, I just said, I really don't want to deal with this.

It's too stressful, I've got too much going on in my life, with the harassment from the town, my health was really bad just then, I was going in for surgery the following week, I just had too many IMPORTANT issues to deal with, I didn't want to have to try to juggle some stupid petty forum war with a bunch of very unprofessional authors who had nothing better to do then fight on a forum.

I mean I they want to act like stupid, childish, unprofessional, spoilt brats, tossing labels and name calling around on a forum, then fine, go ahead, I don't care. It's their own career they are destroying. No good ever comes from attack other people on a forum. Every author who jumps in on something like that is just going to get their career dragged down by it. 

What gets me really mad about all of this, is I just walked out, I never said a word, I never commented, never posted a single forum posts, never said anything on my blog, never said anything on Twitter or FaceBook. Nothing No where. I just walked away. And I was in and out of the hospital from October to February, so I wasn't online that whole time, and I kind of forgot about the Kboards incident. 

I was due in for surgery - again- and still very weak from my 5 months of being paralyzed, not yet fully able to use my arms, not yet fully able to type, not yet walking without someone helping me, and thus not able to type a response to what these people were doing.

That's what infuriated me. Because I was paralyzed, I could not respond. I could not type. I was reading the posts, my account was posting and the responses other authors were posting, and I couldn't do a thing to let these people know - this isn't me. I was still too weak from having been beating up and left for dead, paralyzed for 5 months, to have the ability to type. Someone had taken over my account and was posting from it pretending to be me and I couldn't do anything to stop them. It infuriated me that this low life son of bitch bastard of a creep, was passing themselves off as me and posting a lot of very awful things in a very blatant attack on my career and reputation.

And yet some of the things this hacker wrote were also terrifying. The posts included "updates" on my health - details of hospital visits, details of who was visiting me at home and when. Because the hacker was doing this, it looked even more like I actually was the one posting and what was frightening was that the only way the hacker could have known any of these things was if they were sitting in view of my driveway, while they were typing them.

Whoever this hacker was, it was obvious they could see my driveway. It was obvious, they knew what I did and when I did it. Several posts they wrote, had details about my hospitalization that they could only have known from going to the hospital, and it became frighteningly clear, that his was someone local - very local. Someone who saw me every day and knew where I was, when I was there and was posting posts on the KB forum to match my movements (and lack of). There are only 4 people who live in range to see my yard from their house, meaning the hacker was one of them.

Well, here it is 6 months later (March 2015) and I'm just getting back online again, and I come to find out that, good god, even though I wasn't even online and I had never once responded to a single thing these people said or did, they were STILL attacking me and dragging my name through the mud and screaming "let's dry up her sales" "we need to destroy her career", and well, that's why 7 months after this started, I've decided enough is enough, it's high time I put my foot down and make a public statement about this.

There is someone online pretending to be me. They have been using the ID name "EelKat" on accounts on various sites and posting ludicrous crap. I don't know who they are or why they are doing it, but other then my website here at EelKat.com, the only other sites I post to are:TumblrTwitter, and FaceBook. This person hacked into my old forum accounts between August 2014 and October 2014 and began posting weird shit via my old accounts, pretending to be me. Note that, I was in the hospital at the time this happened and was not online. I did not find out about this hacking/hijacking of my accounts until November/December 2014, when I shut down all 34 of my blogs, my social network accounts, and all of my forum accounts. Most of the hacker's target had been focused on my Kboards account, where they attempted to do quite a bit of damage to my reputation and career. 

They know enough about me to post SOME (very little) accurate information about me and my life (stuff they, very obviously copied off my website here), enough to make their posts look like they actually are written by me, but most of what they are posting is outright lies, and outrageous inaccuracies, such as claiming that I own two brand new Rolls Royces - I do not even own one! Because,  they very clearly don't actually know me, and there is very little information about me out there, they are "filling in the blanks" by making stuff up and posting a lot of "this happened to me" and "I did this and that" type of posts, making claims to things I have never done.

They are also making wild claims about which books I've written, attributing books to me, that I did not write and have no affiliation with at all, at several points making the false claims that I am simply the alternate penname of Twilight author Stephanie Meyers. One post claimed "EelKat" to be a made up "vampire name". No, EelKat Wendy Christine Allen is my REAL name, EelKat is a Kickapoo/Native American word, meaning "girl guided by eels", it was given to me by my Kickapoo grandmother, when I was 3 years old, after she discovered my obsession with collecting, painting, raising, and drawing eels. The Green Moray Eel is my favorite animal, and has been for as long as I can remember. Grammy Eva said eels were my spirit guides, thus why she gave me that as my "spirit name". I have always used EelKat when writing. While I use a penname for my Erotica books, you will find the words "EelKat writing as ---" on the copyright page of those books.

If I wrote a book, it's here on my site. If it's not here on my site, I didn't write it, simple as that. (The Erotica books are not shown or linked to on this site, because of the Google AdSense ToS. They are also not sold on Amazon as they are self-published vanity press chapbooks, only sold locally from local brick&mortar mom&pop bookstores.)

ALL of my books are published by The Twighlight Manor Press. I have no books published with ANY other publisher. (Though I have sold a few work-for-hire 3-page comic book scripts to Disney, those being published by Egmont {Danish language comic books} and Hatchet {French language comic books}. Like the Nancy Drew books written by 57 authors all as Carol Keene, Disney assigns pennames to those, so dozens of authors write the comic script, when it appears to only be one author.) 

So, no, I am NOT Stephanie Meyers. (And please STOP addressing her emails to me. No, I will not forward them to her, I just delete, unread, everything addressed to her.) No, I have never published any books that do not connect back to the name EelKat. If it doesn't say: "EelKat writing as ---" on the copyright page, it isn't me. If it wasn't published by The Twighlight Manor Press, it also wasn't me, as that is the only publisher handling all of my books.

They (the hacker) have been making equally wild claims about my income, in one post claiming I was making $140,000 a month! God! I wish! I haven't made that much total in the past 10 years combined. They have posted my home address in their posts, so they know where I live. They are also copying photos off my website (photos of me) and using them in their posts.

I have been finding these impersonation posts like this, on several forums across the internet. Whoever is doing this, they have been very thorough in hacking into as many of my old (and no longer used) forum accounts as they could find. near as I can tell from the dates on the posts, it appears they started doing this in mid-May 2014, and did most of it between August 2014 through October 2014, only stopping in December 2014, after I discovered it was happening and changed the passwords of most of my accounts and deleted the rest (thus ending their access to my old accounts - they can't hack an account if I just delete it and it is no longer there for them to hack.)

It is unclear who is doing this or why, but, do know that if you see "me" postingANYWHERE online, other than here at EelKat.com or TumblrTwitter, and FaceBookit is NOT me!

I have ZERO currently active forum accounts. I am NOT currently posting on ANY forums ANYWHERE! Any posts showing up on forums ARE NOT being posted by me.

And TumblrTwitter, and FaceBook are the ONLY currently active social network accounts I have.

I will be so happy when all this Kboards hacker court drama is over, so I have time to write regular again. Damn it. I hate all the time this jackass thug is wasting for me. I spent 5 months bedridden, and I get out of the hospital to find out that while I was offline some creep hijacked my forum accounts and social networks and raised absolute hell. God! What is wrong with people? I am so sick and tired of trouble makers. What is it with shit-headed people like that, that possesses them to do something like this?

I get out of the hospital from months and months and months of medical hell and not being able to write or publish the whole time, think FINALLY I can get back to my daily writing and monthly publishing schedule, and then I find out what this jerk was doing to my accounts while I was offline and now I have THAT mess to clean up and straighten out before I can get back to writing regular again. 

Needless to say, I find what this person is doing to be quite annoying and they have been properly cursed to fit their crimes.

You learned enough about me to make an attempt to impersonate me and almost pulled it off because you did convince some people (the members of Kboards) that you were me, but you didn't know me well enough to know about my ToS and Retribution Policy has been in place and on all of my websites since 1997 or know that I have a LONG history of dealing with people like you.

It seems you, dear hacker, overlooked one very important little fact: I am EelKat, the one and only, the single most feared Gypsy Witch/Necromancer in New England, made famous by being featured in Stephen King's The Thinner.

Did you really think you could impersonate me and get away with it?

Did you really think I wouldn't find out?

Do you really think I need to know who you are, what you name is, or where you live to cast a curse on you and send a holy herd of daemons up your ass?

You really should have researched me better before impersonating me and pissing me off. How did you research enough about me to convincingly impersonate me, without discovering I am Voodoo Priestess Necromancer Gypsy Queen with a long history of cursing people like you.

The death of a thousand hungers I rain upon your head. All your ill intents now mirror back upon you. For seven years, you shall suffer, you and your family and your children, shall all wish you had never been born. So let it be written, so let it be done.

These people are really getting out of hand. They are just absolutely out of control and I for one and sick and tired of the nasty, filthy, sick-minded rumors, lies, and gossip these people are spreading about me.

I mean the stuff that these people are saying about me, come with a MINIMUM 40 years in prison sentence. The stuff they are saying is VERY serious.  They are falsely accusing me of having done things that I'm not even physically capable of doing. 

The stuff they are saying about me - these are beyond minor little things: they are calling me a pedophile - a crime that has a 40 year prison sentence. They are small minded people who have resorted to making up lies about my sex life, in what they themselves term an attempted to "dry up her sales and kill her career"

This has gone beyond a "normal" little forum war.

The hacker? What did he/she do? And why?

I don't know why. It would help if I knew who the hacker was, I suppose. In order to figure out who and why, I guess I have to go back to before my Kboards account was hacked, or rather to before I knew it was hacked. Near as I can tell the hack happened at some point in middle of May 2014, but it's had to tell because, they went back and changed all my old posts as well.

I was on KBoards forum for 7 years. I wrote 1,371 articles, most of them more then 10,000 words long. More then 100 self-published authors attributed their success to my help on the forum and the articles I wrote for them. I was there for 7 years and during that time, no one knew what my race was.

In mid-spring 2014 a black woman on the forum was attacked violently by several dozen members. Why? Because she asked a question: "Should I make my characters white?" She went on to explain that she had written her characters black, but that one editor after another had told her the American market was "white" and the only way her book would sell was if she made her characters white.

The woman went on to explain she was considering self-publishing because she did not want to make her characters white, she wanted her characters to be like her.

The response she got was horrendous. Dozens of white members lashed out at her calling her stupid and told her to "face the reality" of the fact that "black people" were "too stupid" to read, thus why only white readers existed in America. I was shocked by the many hate filled answers she was getting. The thread received 300+ responses in the space of a few hours and not a single helpful answer.

I responded to the woman, because it was clear no one else was going to, to tell her, that like her, I too was not white. I too wrote characters who are the same race and culture as myself. I too had had similar editor requests. I too turned to self publishing because I had refused to make my characters be white. I told her to be true to her story. Be true to her culture. Write the story the way it was intended to be written. We need diversity in our books.

Shortly after my response, a few other "minority" members responded. Each one said they had been scared to speak up. Scared to admit their race on a public forum. Soon the thread evolved, when one guy told his self-publishing story as a Chinese man in America, who likewise had run into too many editors telling him to make his characters white.

After a while someone replied to ask me what my race was, as I had not mentioned it. I had only said that I was not white. I replied to say that I was a Gypsy. That was the beginning on the end.

L.G., S.C., J.DP/EA.,  and some members were all members who for many years had been my friends. They were the first to lash out attacks on the threads. Horrible attacks accusing me of being a "baby stealer" and adding too that story until by October 2014 they were saying I wrote what they termed "Pedophile Erotica" and stories "promoting child sex slavery".

There was an entire thread started by one member, on which all of the above members posted and spent to course of a week doing nothing but railing out their hate for Gypsies in general and me in particular. That thread was horrendous. Those members basically started a “protest” and “boycott” with one member suggesting that all members of KBoards just go to my profile and going down the list of all of my posts and “hitting the report button” on all of my posts to “get that pediphile of KBoards”,  adding “that pediphile has got fairies for brains, did you know she believes fairies are real?” To which another member responded “yeah, sick gypos are like that.” 

The thread went on for several more posts all of them poking fun at fairies, leprechauns, and crazy people who believe in them.

Nearly 3 pages worth of posts were devoted to tearing apart, Faerie Faith, my culture’s native indigenous religion, spiritual practices, and beliefs. Faerie Faith is a religion which does not follow the Abrahamic god or the belief in the world according to Moses; rather it is an Animistic religion which reverences the spirits of nature (called the Fae).

Faeries, capitalized and spelt with an "E and always ending in "ie" is different from fairy or fairies or fery or feries or faery. They are the Little People, but not tiny, they are Humans sized, just shorter. They are not little flower fairies with butterfly wings. They are what Christians often refer to as "guardian angels" or "ghosts" or "spirits of the dead" or in Voodoo and Vudo "the Loa". They are the spirits of our ancestors. 

Leprechaun, as we use it, IS NOT the same as Americans use it. We ARE the Leprechauns. The Indigenous Highlanders of Scotland aka the Picts aka the Scottish Gypsies are shorter then most people. Most of our women are under 5'3" and most of our men are under 5'9". My grandmother was only 5'1" and I'm only 5'6" (thus why Quaraun is 5'6"). When the Celts invaded Scotland they referred to us as "The Little People" because we are little.  

Our people are NOT as we are incorrect called actually indigenous to Scotland. My family reached Scotland, via the Vikings, after being kidnapped in Mongolia, where they had previously lived. We did not originate in Mongolia either. We came from Persia originally. We by blood/DNA/genetically are Persians. We are Persians originally and we were a sub-group within the Persian culture known as Magi. Yes - the same group mentioned in the Bible, the travelling "Wise Men of the East" who spent their lives roaming the world. Which is why we dress in the "strange" beaded and embroidered silk robes that we wear.

 By profession, traditionally our people made very elaborate, beaded clothes including shoes. Thus when the Irish discovered our people in scotland, they called use both The Little People AND The Leprechauns, which only means "The Shoe Makers". 

So when people on the forum started bullying me about the term "Leprechaun" it hurt a lot, because, it's a frequent bullying tactic I've had to live with most of my life.

The problem is Americans are too ignorant to do any research, and when they hear "Leprechaun" the first the they think of is, cartoon Brownies in green coats, hiding gold under rainbows and granting wishes. That is a stupid, idiotic, vile, racist, bigoted stereotype that created by hate mongers to make fun of our people. The cartoon green Leprechaun is to our people, what the Gollywog is to the the black people.

There is an ACTUAL, real, live, HUMAN, group of people who ACTUALLY ARE called Leprechauns. They wear red not green, and they look and dress like THIS:

And they are my people, and I am tired of that stupid green cartoon with his pot of gold and rainbows being thrown in my face.

It's mean.

It's hateful.

It's racist.

And it hurts.

You wouldn't throw Gollywogs at a black person. Why are you throwing green men and rainbows at me?

It's not my problem if you are too stupid to know what a REAL Leprechaun is. But go ahead, rave your stupidity all over a public forum, let the world know you actually ARE retarded, while you sit there calling me a retard.

You're calling ME a retard? YOU'RE the one who doesn't know what a Leprechaun is. YOU'RE the one with stupid cartoons stuck in your head.

When I say we descended from the Leprechauns, I'm not talking about your stupid racist Lucky Charms cartoons! I'm talking about the short race of Persian Magi, who where called Leprechauns and Little People by the Irish, because they were short and they made shoes.

But silly me, I have Autism, I forget, how STUPID you non-Autistic people are, requiring me to EXPLAIN the meaning of EVERYTHING!

























YES! It does hurt when you are throwing your stupid jokes about rainbows and pots of gold and laughing about how my favorite colour must be green.  And, no, it's NOT funny!

But all you are doing is proving that YOU not me, are the one who is retarded, because YOU'RE the one thinking of cartoon characters because you are too stupid to know the difference between a race/group/ethnicity of people and a stupid cartoon.


Another member C.J. (a reader, not an author) was torn apart on yet another thread, which resulted in several rant posts by several members (authors) claiming that KBoards was for “authors only” and that "readers should just leave the forum" as “this place isn’t for them”.

A third thread was then started by D.W. called: “A Big Thank You to EelKat and C*****J**” This thread was started in response to the other two. D.W. wrote a long thank you letter to me and C.J. for all the help each of us had given him during the early days of starting his writing career. He encouraged others to join him in standing up to the EAF & DD forum Erotica authors who had invaded KB, stating that he believed overall members of KB were not of the same mind as the large group of 50+ new members who had only been on the forum for fewer then 30 days.

The British Erotica authors from Erotica Author Forum and Dirty Discourses, went into total hootenanny hysterics, lashing out at his thread as well. In their raging inferno they lashed out him, his thread, and anyone who posted on it to defend me or C.J.

One member (who had joined that week and had posted on KB before) went off on a rant on the evils of Gypsies, stating that they lived in Europe and knew all about Gypsies and knew that “the only good Gypsy is a dead Gypsy, I say we exterminate them all.”

There seemed to be yet another thread involved, but I never saw it, so either the mods deleted it off KBoards or the thread in question was on EAF forum or DD forum and not KB forum. Both EAF and DD forums are private access forums with paid membership. I’ve never paid money for any forum, nor would I, so I have never seen either forum and don’t know what goes on over there.

What I do know is that J.DP. changed her KB account id name to E.A. and then (thinking I didn’t know it was still her same account - I have software on my computer that tells me the ISP number of all posters on all forums) started a riot on yet another thread, where she boldly bragged that on the DD forum there was an entire section where they could protest the books of any author they didn’t like and that she and other members of DD forum were in an attempt to figure out all 15 of my pennames so that they could compile a list of all of my books and send it out in email newsletters to readers to “warn them” that I was “a pedophile Gypsy who deserves to die”. 

J.DP turned E.A. also posted to say:  “if you want to talk about EelKat without her knowing what you are saying about her, join me on KBoards chat, she never uses it.”

Another member replied to this post to say “I started a Google Hangout where we can talk about EelKat without her knowing it, shoot me an email and I’ll send you an invite”.

This went on throughout August, September, and October 2014. I ignored the members and threads involved, never replying or posting on any of them and just continued to talk with other members. Whenever anyone asked me “Why do you stay here, when the environment is so hostile towards you these days?”

My answer was simply: “Let them make fools of themselves that the world may know them mad. This is a public forum, they are just self-ruining their careers by not acting professional.”

J.DP./E.A. was flipping out in hysterics at me - replying to EVERY post I made on ANY thread, by posting a weird, wild, utterly psychotic rant that made absolutely no sense at all. At one point she posted the rant in her signature so it was attached to all of her posts. On the 2 Erotica threads she posted the rant, every hour, on the hour, over and over again, for days. 

I was curious why she was posting that same rant, reworded, once an hour, every hour, for more then a week and always posting it as a reply to anything I said, on every thread. Every other post (she apparently stayed online all day long because every post someone made on that thread day or night, she replied to their post by yet again reposting her rant, thus why every other post on the thread was her rant) on the EAF thread was her saying "Come join DD and get away from the FAKE Erotica authors on KB, only REAL Erotica authors are allowed there, YAY!" and every post she made anywhere else was nasty snarkiness tacked on a reply to something I said.

On October 27th I started getting a TON of emails and private messages - not one or two, but DOZENS of them - from all these new members who had joined KB from EAF, included from the owner of DDF. I was baffled. I couldn't figure out why all these people were contacting me, and why so many of them, and why all at once? All minutes apart. I got more then a dozen messages the first hour. It was just mind boggling. I figured something was up, for that many people to start contacting me all at once like that, so I start reading the messages and they were all almost the exact same message, nearly word for word, copy/paste, every one of them.

Guess what they were copy and paste of? Yeah,JDP/EA's posts "ONLY REAL Erotica Authors" blah, blah, blah...

"FAKE Erotica is not allowed" blah, blah, blah.

It became apparent that over on the DD forum, this psycho crybaby zombie writer who'd only taken up Erotica in the past month member, was on some sort of vendetta, but what or why, I had no clue.  Whatever it was, I couldn't help but think she was on a clear road to a heart attack or a stroke the way she was just flipping out steady none stop all hours of the day and night, every day for the entire month of October.

GOD! I don't think I've ever seen any one have a complete psycho billy meltdown like J.DP/EA had.

The thing that started bothering me about J.DP/EAs meltdown was that a large majority of her reposted copy and past posts, were replies to my posts, often with parts of my posts in quotes, in between her ranting. It made no sense at all, because the things she was quoting were completely different topic then her rants.  

I began to appear the JDP/EA was a spammer, since every sentence of these rants included the phrase "Come join Dirty Discourses!"  I chalked her off as being a spammer, over promoting the DD forum, and for the first time in 7 years on KBoards, I went looking for the block/ignore feature so I could block her posts.  I blocked JDP/EA around October 17 and after that had no more issues with being harassed by her, as the block goes both ways.

By blocking JDP/EA, I seemed to have set off a light under her ass, because the very next day, I was bombarded with 50+ EAF Erotica authors, lashing out in vehement hatred, replying with the wildest craziest, insane accusations I had ever seen!

From the things they said, it became apparent that JDP/EA was some sort of paranoid conspiracy theory freak, who had it in her head I was "out to get her" (as more then one member said she had told them.)

Out to get her? What? I didn't even know who she was. She'd only joined KBoards in May 2014.  She wrote end of the world zombie apocalypse prepper fiction, according to her profile bio, a genre I don't read, don't write, and have absolutely no interest in. She was a nobody who appeared out of nowhere and just went nut case on me and I still have no idea why.

But, several members were adamant in saying that she had gone to another forum and told them I was out to get her, and asked them to come join KBoards to help her, they were saying that they had thus created their KBoards accounts it "come to her defence". 

I'm sorry...what? Her defence? You're joking right? Defence against what? What in the hell are you people talking about?

They came right out and said I was attacking her and targeting her posts and that they were going to defend her from me.

I'm thinking: "Good god, these people are nuts. I don't even know who this woman is. I've NEVER responded to her posts at all, let alone was attacking her and out get her, like they were saying I was.

I've been on hundreds of forums since 1997. EVERYONE knows me and EVERYONE knows I NEVER reply or respond to mean posts, and this woman, has never said a kind post. She's been raining hellfire on first one author and then the next since May, so why would I reply to anything she says? No reason to. She's just a mean, bitter person, very obviously a forum troll, just trying to stir up troule. No reason to feed the troll with a response. 

I mean, this woman lashed out at dozens of other authors for several months, before she got around to lashing out at me. She's a bully. Bullying authors on the forum is what this woman is known for. It's what she does. And I want nothing to do with bullies. So, I ignore her. I just act like she isn't even there. If me and someone else are talking on a thread and she jumps in with her crazy rants, I just act like I didn't see them. I don't even acknowledge her presence. I am a Gypsy after all, we are very good at shunning people and ignoring their existence. And I have Autism, I was shunned for more then 40 years by a good 3/4s of the clan.

If there's one thing I learned how to do while growing up in Gypsy culture, it how to shun people and pretend they aren't there, act like they are dead even though they are in the room talking. It's what the aunts and uncles and cousins did to me. I have Autism, they viewed that as a form of demo possession. They said my Autism would go away if I repented of my demon possession and cast the demons out. They had an exorcism done on me once and, they said I "threw" the priest across the room (I didn't - I punched him in the face and tripped and fell down on his backside; but they say I used "demon strength throw him across the room.") and they've shunned me ever since because, they believe I am the "child of Satan" as they like to call me.

So, you see, I know how to shun a person and pretend they are dead and not there, I had more then 200 family members do it to me (which is why Quaraun's family and village do it to him in the books. The Quaraun books are a very accurate representation of how people treat Autistic people because it's how people treat me because of my Autism.)

Anyways. This woman has been posting crazy mean stuff at a lot of authors for a lot of months, and I just ignore her and pretend she's not there. So when she starts lashing out at me next, I continue to ignore her and pretend she's not there. And when these 50+ "EAF Erotica Authors" show up, all saying they are her "minions" and their "in her defence", I ignore them too.

I didn't reply to any of them, not her or her "minions" (what, does she think she's a super villain? Why does she have "minions"?) and I made a point to avoid any thread they posted on, and they were working themselves up into a progressively bigger and bigger and wilder and ever more ludicrous frenzy with each passing hour.

But...some things started to stand out as they posted more and more rants...something very odd, and I suddenly realized... omg... I know what happened...

In the midst of their raving and ranting, they were tossing in odd statements like "We don't want your kind on KB" and "People like you don't deserve to live" and "she out to be shot in the head" and "let's destroy her career" and "your kind don't belong here"...and a lot of stuff like that.

There were multiple "reasons" they had. But lots of empty "your kind" and "people like you" statements went not specified.

Some were very adamant in their hatred for "retards" and others were very vocal about their hatred for "gays", and at first I thought those were the only two issues, but then some other things started to pop into their rants.

My kind? What does that even mean? What are you talking about?

People like me? What do you mean people like me?

One made the statement that they had been to Romania once and therefor "I know first hand what kind of scum you are."

Romania? What? I'm not Romanian. I've never been to Romania. Why are they directing these posts to me? I don't get it. These people obviously had absolutely no clue who they were talking to. It was clear that they only knew me from stuff JDP had told them and whatever it was she told them, it was REALLY wrong, because they were aiming a lot of hate at me for a lot of reason that simply did not apply to me at all. So I was extremely confused as to why they were addressing these posts to me.

I wanted to reply and ask them what they meant by these things, but I continued to read only and not reply to anything they said, because in all my years of forum activity, I have never once responded to a troll and I didn't intend to start.

But as the hours rolled on, more pieces fell into place as the phrases "dirty gypo" and "thieving gypsies" and "baby stealing scum" began to pop into their posts.

Ah! Gypsy haters. THAT's what they meant by Romania. They were talking about Romnies, Romas. 

No. Romas. Gypsies. Travellers. They are three separate races. Because REAL Gypsies are so rare, Romas and Travellers think they can call themselves Gypsies and get away with it because most people don't know the difference between a Gypsy and a Roma and a Traveller.

Okay...so...now I click on the KB profile of the owner of DD forum and the admins of DD forum and these several dozen members of DD forum and...oh my... do you know what I found out? Why golly goshy me, they do be white men from good old Britain.

Yeah.

Scottish Gypsy haters to the core.

No one hates a Scottish Gypsy more then a white Brit, no one is more vocal in their belief that the only good Gypsy is a dead Gypsy. why gosh darn, little old mountain hick me, I should had seen that one coming now shouldn't I have? Oh boo-hoo-hooo poor little wittle tighty whity assed crybaby britty wittys have got a big bad brown assed Gypsy-whipsy on the forum and they can't stand it. 

Oooooooh, let's all play Frankenstein and gang up on her. Yeah, real mature, real mature. Hey, here's something, why don't you grow up and, I don't know, try acting like a human being for a change. Might do you some good. Here I am, I'm the one one with Autism, "the idiot illness" and yet, you guys are the ones acting like idiots on a public forum.

But then the emails and PMs start rolling in and I'm like, what the...? Pediphile Erotica? Child sex for titillation? What in the heck are these people talking about? I was completely clueless. Absolutely utterly clueless. And what was in the emails? Well, they were supposedly responses to something I had written on the KB forum, but how in the heck they came to the conclusions they were jumping to, I have no idea, because me, I still didn't know someone had hacked my account and was using it to promote child porn and spread nasty filthy lies about how Gypsies are all evil scumbags who go after children.

And yet I'm getting emails tell me that I...uhm...*cough* am not a "real" Erotica writer, I don't write the *correct* type of Erotica, because it's "fake" or so I was told by 1 of DDFs mods and more then a dozen EAF/DD members via the KB private messages, where they contacted me to tell me that under no circumstances was I ever to consider attempting to join their DD forum.

Okay...I write Bizarro. Bizarro Horror. Bizarro Sci-Fi. Bizarro Yaoi. And yes, Bizarro Erotica (also known as Monster Porn) and most of what I write in either gay or bi-sexual. And whether it’s Erotica or not, my stories use the words Fuck, Cock, Dick, and Penis in just about every paragraph...and if you are talking about The Twiglight Manor Series or Quaraun the Insane series, you are gonna find the words Fuck, Cock, Dick, and Penis in just about every sentence. Both those series are not Erotica and are only rated M18 for language (as opposed to stuff like my Monster Porn which is rated MA21 for graphic sex AND language.)

While I do not consider either The Twighlight Manor Series or Quaraun the Insane series to be Erotica, most readers say the sex in them is far more graphic then what is seen in Erotica and classify both series as Porn. Both series evolve around the lives of the non-human (aliens and merfolk in the TMSeries and Elves and Fae in the QtISeries) main characters (Etiole, Razzbury, and Roderic Swanzen of the TMSeries and Quaraun and Unicorn of the QtISeries). They are Literary stories that focus on minor everyday details that happen in the life of the main character, thus the point of each story is character development, not plot or action (there is no action in either series, and many readers describe the stories as “slow moving but emotionally intense”.)

I point out The TMSeries and the QtISeries specifically here, because these are the two series which JDP/EA and S.M.R. specifically mentioned in their posts. J.DP/E.A. had made frequent comments about the TMSeries usually comparing it to Stephenie Meyers Twilight Saga. Her constantly comparing the two series made no sense to me as they are not anything alike at all! Other then the word Twighlight and Twilight in the titles and a character named Swanzen vs Swan and both authors being Mormons, there is no similarities to the two series at all. She even made a post saying that I had copied S.M’s Twilight! How laughable is that! I wrote the TMSeries in the 1970s and S.M. wrote Twilight just 3 or 4 years ago. My series was written before S.M. was even born for crying out loud! 

Why J.DP/EA kept bringing this up, I don’t know, but every time she did, another member S.M.R. would jump in and say: “You know what Gypsies are like. They steal everything. Look at me, I’m a Gypsy, I wrote Harry Potter!”

On several threads J.DP/EA and S.M.R. posted countless accusations accusing me of claiming that I WAS Stephenie Meyers and said that I was claiming I had written the Twilight Saga! I have never made any such claim and I have no idea why they were saying that I had, but it was another thing that the members of the D.D. forum were saying as well, stating that they “know all about you and how you impersonate Steph Meyers”! 

I found the posts by S.M.R. most baffling, as she had left KBoards in 2013 (after being attacked by forum trolls back then, in a very similar manner as what was going on here) and had been very vocal in her leaving, that she would never go back. She had been very vocal on her blog, FaceBook, Twitter, and even stated on one occasion that her lawyer had forbidden her to have any connection to KBoards after the way her account had been horrendously slandered by KB members back in 2013.

The odd thing about S.M.R.s posts is that she and I had been friends on KB years ago and these new posts in October 2014, were not her “voice” or “writing style” at all. S.M.R. also did not write Erotica and she was posting saying that she was a member of EAF in some posts. The snark, voice, and style matched J.DP/EA nearly exactly, and every time J.DP/EA made a post, S.M.R. would post a few minutes later. It appeared that whoever was posting via J.DP/EA’s account, was also posting via S.M.R.’s account. 

I found this very odd and am fairly certain that S.M.R.s account was hacked. At this point I began to wonder if J.DP/EAs account had been hacked as well, however, J.DP/EA had used this brash, crash and bash attack style of posting ever since she created her account. She was a very bigoted, volatile, high strung, prone to wild accusations, and lashing out at other members for no logical reason, right from day one, so these posts lashing out at me were not unusual for he and given the way she had attacked first one member after another, it was only logical that eventually she would get around to lashing out at me too. No. It was S.M.R.s posts that were sending up the red flags that KBoards had a hacker on the loose. 

Several old members, commented on S.M.R.s sudden return to KBoards after nearly two years gone. She ignored every one of them and oddly acted as though she didn’t know any of these old long time members whom had once been her close friends. When members asked her how she was doing (she’d had surgery just before leaving) and how her children were doing, again, she avoided these members and acted as though she did not know about her own health issues or children. This sent up more red flags indicating that S.M.R. was NOT the one writing her posts.

When the EAF Erotica authors started lashing out their threats, demanded that I “better not join Dirty Discourses or else”, oddly S.M.R. jumped in to join them. S.M.R. was not an Erotica Author and her claims as such, were a glaring red flag, that whoever was now controlling her account had slipped up and made a HUGE mistake by posting this message via the WRONG account! With this person posting to the wrong account, there was no longer any question that S.M.R.’s account was hacked and she was not the one posting these messages.

The oddest thing of all, was, I write Erotica under a penname that I have NEVER revealed to ANYONE. No one knows what my penname is. I used to write under other pennames, but I unpublished those and after doing so, revealed, yes, that was me writing as those two names. So these members lashing out at me saying I was “writing fake Erotica” and pointing to the Twighlight Manor Series and the Quaraun the Insane series, were making a huge error here, because neither of those series is Erotica. Yes, they have sex scenes in them, but that doesn’t make them Erotica. I have never called either of those two series, Erotica. Some of my readers have called them Erotica, but I haven’t. 

So, it was just ridiculous, them pointing at these particular books, and saying that I was writing fake Erotica and they knew it, “because look these are not REAL Erotica”...well, yeah, no duffy! Of course they aren’t Erotica! I never said they were! 

But then, WHY in the heck were they flipping out and demanding I not join the DD forum? They acted like I had said I was going to join. And...I never had any interest in joining so, I don’t even know what they were talking about. Why were they flipping out?

Wait...what? Join the DD forum? What? What are they talking about? Why would anyone in their right mind pay money to join a forum? I don't get it. You can't taste it, you can't touch it, you can't hold it in your hands, it isn't gonna keep you warm or dry, why would I pay money for it? Hey, they want to waste their money joining some snooty private forum, it's no skin off my back. What do I care? What the hell are they talking about? Why are they sending me these emails. Here I am getting ready for surgery in a few days, and these people, these strangers from Britain are bombarding me with messages and emails that make sense to me at all!

They seemed to be under the impression that I intended to join the DD forum and "invade" their private territory, because "that's what Gypsies do" according to them. That’s when the “I used to live in Romania, I know what your kind is like” posts started showing up. 

They started out yelling for me to not invade DD forum and by the end of the posts they were rambling on about how “Gypsies are all squatters, they invade every place”. One poster started raving about how they were “sick of trash like you moving around all the time and invading everyone’s land”!

What the hell? My family have been settled Gypsies since the 1530s. We own this land ourselves and we haven't moved off of it in 500 freaking years. Where in the hell do you get off throwing lying stereotypes in my face, accusing me of invading your private property! But like I said, I never once posted on their little EAF/DDF thread, I never joined their conversation, heck, I didn't even know these people, they had only been members of KB for less then 20 days. So I still don't know why they thought I was going to join.

Not sure what exactly happened over there on the DD forum (as I'm not a member) that inspired a whole slew of them to PM me here within an hour of each other, but something clearly happened, somewhere, to cause them to all message me minutes apart, to tell (threaten) me not to join their private forum. This was not some random, oh let's message her when we get around to it, this was a very organized, oh, it's been two minutes, well guess it's my turn to copy and paste the exact same message to her. Somehow they thought I would join DDF and wanted to let it be know that I was in no way welcomed over there. And boy did they ever let it be known! What a potty mouthed group of shit heads they are in private messages when they think no one can see them...

I spent 36 years building a name and reputation for myself as a writer and I don't take kindly at all to your little petty racist attempt to destroy my career and reputation, just because YOU HATE Gypsies! ?

They think they know me, because they think they know Gypsies? But no, they didn't take the time to find out anything about me at all. They just jumped to false conclusions and incited up a riot over on DDF and told them to land in my inbox on KB. Nice. Good one. Great way to be a professional and start your career. 

Do they really think that's the way to operate a business? You do know anybody can saunter on over to KB, read the posts going on and on and on about how they write REAL Erotica and how they just can't stand FAKE Erotica authors, and oh yippie skippies, look at them ruining their own career. 

Yeah. You know what? You want to drag your career down the toilet. Fine. Have at it. I’ll not have you dragging my career down the drain with you. 

You wonder why your sales are in the toilet...uhm...you might want to reconsider what you've been saying on KB!

J.DP/EA. and her EAF/DDF friends and their little outburst of insanity in my inbox, at first I wasn't sure what they meant by it, but their exact words were "we don't want your kind around our forum" and "our forum is only open to REAL Erotica writers" and "FAKE Erotica is not allowed" (they capitalized the words real and fake). 

My kind? What exactly is my "kind"?

Fake Erotica? What is "fake" Erotica?

Real Erotica? What is "real" Erotica?

And what did they mean by "your kind"?

My kind?

What does my kind, even mean?

There are so many ways that can be translated, with me being a short, Autistic, transvestite, minority race. Which of the not-normal things I am is it that pisses you off most?

I'm a Scottish Gypsy/Kickapoo Native American, who writes Weird Erotic Horror, Bizarro Erotica, Monster Porn, Tranny Erotica, Yaoi, Sword and Sorcery Epic Fantasy Erotica, and Gay Erotica. Those are all real Erotica categories found on Amazon with lots of authors writing them. Don't know which one they consider fake or not real Erotica, or what they were referring to when they said my "kind", but, needless to say I turned off the PMs.

They did however keep referencing back to "your post" about this. "Your post" about that. The "this" and "that" being reference to child sex, pedophiles, sex slavery, child porn, and other things of that nature. My post? I have 1,371 posts on KB, which post are you talking about? And what the hell? I never wrote anything about child porn or pedophile erotica. What are you talking about? This is just crazy. You people are freaking crazy!

In late October, nearly a dozen members suddenly had most of their posts deleted and edited and the mods claimed they had not done it. L.G. (an author whom had previously been my friend and we had even worked together on the KBoards Anthology book) started a thread, which on one hand accused me of being a pedpophile and writing what she called “pedophile erotica” and on the other hand accused mod B.Q. deleting “200 of my posts for no reason, while leaving EelKat’s pediphile posts untouched.”

She ranted on for 7,000 words of how B.Q. was playing favorites by “picking on” her and not deleting my posts in spite of “having been reporting all of EelKat’s posts every day” because ‘we got to get that pedophile off KB”. 

I saw that post by L.G. and wondered: WHAT is she talking about?

Pedophile posts?

WHAT pedophile posts?

WHAT pedophile Erotica?

What the hell?

Her accusations completely took me by surprise. How in the heck could anybody attribute anything I had written, in either my books or on my forum posts, as having any connection to pedophiles?

Well, I had seen the other members on the other threads screaming their rants about pedophiles, but in their posts, they were just generalizing with statements like: “all Gypsies are pedophiles, why do you think they steal babies?”

The other members were basing their pedophile accusations on Gypsy stereotypes and generalizing that because I was a Gypsy I therefore must be all these other things, blah, blah, blah, (list of things Gypsies “do”) with pedophiles being on the list.

But L.G.’s thread was not making sweeping generalizations about Gypsies. Her opening post on the thread, called me out by name and boldly accused me of posting things, I knew for a fact that I had never posted. Why was she saying I had posted these things, when I hadn’t?

Keep in mind, these people who did this, they had previously lied and said they were my friends. I hate liars and backstabbers.

Mod B.Q. posted on the thread to say that, yes TWO of L.G.s posts had been deleted, both for harassing another member and being against forum decorum and yes a few of her posts on various threads had been edited by the mods, to remove “personal attacks on other members” in order to “comply with forum decorum”.

B.Q. then stated, that the other “200 posts” which L.G. was saying had been edited and/or deleted “without mod notes at the bottom” had not been edited or deleted by a mod.

The thread then exploded into a huge battle of several members suddenly saying they had also had posts edited and or deleted without proper mod notification. B.Q. locked the thread stating that she would review the situation with the other mods. 

Last post I read on KBoards stated that mods B.Q., A.A., and H.V. were looking into the situation an hoped to have it settled shortly. They are good mods, I've seen dozens of "attacks" like this happen to other members over the years, and the mods are always quick to get things under control. I don't doubt that they did look into it and did get the offenders back in line. But I didn't care to stick around to find out. 

What happened after that on KBoards, I don’t know. That was the last thread I read. That was October 27, 2014. Puzzled by L.G’s wild accusations that I was posting pediphile stuff on the forum, and puzzled as to why so many authors were claiming the mods were attacking them and why so many authors were claiming their posts were being edited without their permission and why so many authors were claiming that many of their posts were being deleted; while at the same time the mods were responding to these complaints and saying “We didn’t do t. If someone edited your posts it wasn’t us mods.”

This was the first time I was alerted to the fact that my posts on KB had been edited and changed.  Curious to find out how any of my posts could have been misconstrued by L.G. as “promoting pedophilla” I went to my KB account profile and scrolled down through the list of my old posts to try to find what post she could be talking about and re-read it to see how she could possibly have mistranslated it as promoting pedophilila. What I found was shocking. 

It was very confusing for me, why did I have all these people contacting me? And contacting me with such rage and hate? There wasn't a kind word in any of them and they were getting angrier with each private message. I couldn't understand it at all. And the stuff some of them were saying it was becoming down right terrifying. Dozens of them had gone from people who were supposedly my friends to bitter angry people who were coming right out and saying they wanted me dead. And I didn't know why.

There was no reason for it. For 30 years I've had a reputation for mediating peace and joy and kindness on online forums. I had a reputation for always being the person no one was ever mad at, because I went out of my way to never do anything that got people, mad, and here these people were worked up into a herd mentality mod of self-righteous anger. 

How does someone like me, who never done anything but post love and kindness and try to help people, fall under this kind of attack, that was happening here?

I'e never said a mean or unkind thing to or about anyone. Not once in my 30 years of being online. I'm famous across 300 forums for that. EVERYONE knows for that. That is my reputation.

And yet these people were of the opinion I was attacking them, out to get them, they said. 

90% of my posts on forums look like this:

How is that an attack?

How is that out to get someone?

I had no clue what these people were talking about. But I also didn't know my account had been highjacked and someone was changing all of my posts.  I didn't go back and read my old posts. I knew what wrote. Why did I need to go back and read it? So I know idea someone had changed them.

It became obvious, as the PMs continued to slaughter my inbox with ever more hysterical insanity, that somewhere on one of my posts on KB, I had said something to really piss these people off, but what it was I had no clue, because nothing these people were accusing me of made any sense at all. They did not appear to be referencing anything I had said anywhere ever, KB or otherwise..

The PMs they wasn't why I deleted my posts, but that was how I found out that someone on KB was SERIOUSLY editing a lot of my posts. Nearly every one of them in fact. I keep copies of everything. Every post I post on KB, is cross posted to a private section of my website, which is cross posted to both my WP blog and my Blogger blog, and kept on my computer, and kept on my spare hard drive, so I have copies of everything I write saved in multiple locations so I never lose it in case of server crashes or computer crashes. I've lost manuscripts in the past to server crashes and computer viruses, so now I don't take chances. EVERYTHING I write, even if it's just a one line "Hey, how you doing?" comment, is saved. 

ALL OF THEM.

I have an entire yWriter5 File that is nothing but every single post I've ever written on KB. 

Well, after getting all these messages telling me I wasn't welcomed by the other Erotica authors, who while they were telling me not to join DD, they were also saying they didn't want me on KB either, I started going back over my posts on KB, to see if I could figure out what I could possibly have said that had inspired such vehement outrage in my message box. And oh my god! What I found!

I was shocked to see the hack and slash job that had been done on my posts...at first I thought it was the moderators of the forum editing my posts, but there was no notation stating that the mods had edited my posts. If the mods edit your posts, they always leave a note at the bottom to say what was edited and why. There were no mod notes, but my posts were edited...boy were they ever edited.

For starters EVERY post had had the copyright notice and reprint permission disclaimer completely removed. There was nothing left to indicate that these posts were NOT comments, but rather reprints of articles, already published, that I posted in response to a question, asked by the thread's OP.

Some posts had huge sections missing, others were COMPLETELY reworded and changed, and no longer had the same meaning as what I had originally said! And worse, completely new passages, not things I had written at all, were added in. I was horrified by what I was finding.

Oh, yeah, I could see why people were mad. I would have been too. It was bad. And a lot of it was stuff, that was promoting child porn, with lots of snarky "I can get away with it because I'm a Gypsy and have a million dollars, La la la la la!" (That's an actual quote.) It was really, really bad, the things that were being said in my posts, but the thing of it was: it wasn't me! I didn't write those words! Someone had removed my words, respun them, added lots of inconsistent, inaccurate, bitchy snark and crass, and then reposted it. (The same sort of wild bitchy snark and crass, even the same style and voice as J.DP/EA - it appeared to be the same person who wrote her posts, that was re-writing my posts.)

AND every one of the posts had a note at the bottom, stating they had been edited by me!!!! But I had never edited any of them at all!

OMG! Someone had hacked into my account and was completely rewriting all of my posts! I don't know who did it, but it was pretty obvious why. This person HATED Gypsies and had found a Gypsy and they were gonna do everything they could do to use my account to make Gypsies look bad. I was utterly disgusted that someone would do this to another human being. How does a person get to hate a race like this?

In my 7 years on KB I had never once gone back to my old posts to read, change, or edit a thing. This was my first time re-reading my old posts. The first thing I noticed was that every one of them had a notice at the bottom stating “This post was last edited by EelKat on {DATE} at {TIME}” Every single post. I was looking at that note on the bottoms of all my posts and thinking: “What? I didn’t edit that post. I didn’t edit any of my posts. The only times I ever edited a post, I type a note at the opening line that reads “ETA: Editing because my spelling sucks.” Out of my thousands of posts, that note was only on less then 10 of them. Those were the only posts I had ever edited and they were edited to fix spelling errors. But here I was looking at my posts and they had ALL been edited, and not by me, even though there was a note at the bottom saying I had edited them!

Good god! Who edited my posts? And why? 

I started reading to see what had been edited, and oh my fricking bejesusms! Yeah, there they were, all those posts L.G. was talking about. Posts promoting pediphilia! Lots of them. And not just that, but really weird shit too. Things saying I was making millions of dollars on my books and weird stuff about my cars and my family and my hobbies...and oh my god...the stuff about the mansions! Yie! Jesum Crow, what the fricking hell? 

Since when do I live in a mansion? I’ve been homeless and living on the streets under a 8x6 tarp since the bomb took out my house in 2006 and EVERYONE knows this. There are hundreds of interviews with me, news reports, 2 books that I was featured in, I go to lectures and events, etc, because of this. I happen to be willingly homeless. I didn’t start out that way, but it turns out I like camping out full time so I stuck with it even after I didn’t have to anymore. It’s no secret my alternative lifestyle, heck there pictures of my and my tarp-tent all over the freaking internet. It’s so famous that I get hundreds of tourists coming here to Maine every year JUST to come see me in my tarp tent in person. One guy drove all the way from Alaska to see it. A women came all the way from Japan to see it. 

Whoever edited my posts, knew enough stuff about me to pull off sounding like me, but they clearly never did a Google search on me, because if they had, first thing that would have come up was information on my 8 years living under a tarp through 5 hurricanes, dozens of blizzards, and 8 month long winters with sub-zero temperatures. I do not live in a mansion, I never have, and never would, so any body that actually knew me, would have known immediately that I had not written these posts, just by that fact alone.

At some point in mid-August someone hacked into my account and began editing my posts, turning them into arrogant gibberish that bragged about utter nonsense.

Some of the claims they wrote via my account bragged of being a millionaire. One said I owned three mansions. Another said I paid $75,000 for a single book, while another said I had paid $600,000 for a car.

The hacker also changed numbers in the sales figure, book ranks, and income, deliberately making everything a miss-match contradictory mess, that came of reading as gibberish. 

The worst of the hackers changes was to then change the actual text of the articles themselves, inserting wild claims, making excessively arrogant and boastful remarks, riddling the articles with snide racist putdowns, using vile words that are not part of my vocabulary, and attributing lewd "incest and pedophile erotica" books to me, which I would never write.

I do not know how long the hacker was altering my posts on the KB forum. I only found out about it, when, a new forum, Dirty Discourses, was created for the Erotica authors of KB (many of whom were claiming to have fallen under heavy attack from non-Erotica author members. I can not verify if these attacks happened or not, but they probably did, seeing the way my account was attacked, I don't doubt if they say they were attacked to, they probably were.) And inspired by their posts L.G. wet off on a rant on her thread calling me out by name and accusing me of writing stuff I'd never written.

I was unaware of DDF until THEY CONTACTED ME in my inbox, but their messages were indicating that they assumed I knew who they were and indicated they thought I not only knew of their forum but that I planned to (in their words) "invade it".

This whole thing was just so baffling for me, because these people acted like I knew who they were and what they were talking about, until they contacted me I had never heard of them of their forum.

I can only assume that whoever hacked my account, must have also been contacting these people, while claiming to be me, and these people were replying to the impersonator's messages, but doing so by contacting me directly. Thus the impersonator did not get the replies, I did, thus I found out of the impersonators existence.

So, there is somebody out there, pretending to be me and contacting these people getting them mad, and they in turn contact me, thinking it was me who had initiated contact with them. But it wasn't me. I didn't know who these people were or what they were talking about.

Just before this all happened there was another major forum attack. This on V.R. and Vm.B. It started in July and went out of control in August, much the same way and they were attacked by some of the same members who lashed out on my in October and November. 

In August, three Erotic Romance KB members, did fall under heavy attack, but not by KB members. Their Amazon accounts fell under heavy fire from 1* reviews - 30 or more posted every hour on the hour for several days, all on KDP Select ebooks, all with non-verified purchases. a week later every book attacked, was copied word for word and republished by a plagiarist. Throughout August a legal battle between Amazon, the authors, and the thief raged on, much of the information being posted to, the now infamous "Serialized Romance Thread" of KB. 

The Serialized Romance Thread, for those not familiar with it, was started by V.R. one of the authors who fell under attack. It was a mega sized thread, started in February 2014, on which she posted some 30,000 words of step-by-step detailed information on how to write, edit, format, create covers, publish, and market and successful Paranormal Erotic Romance Serial. She then invited other authors to add their how-to articles to the thread. Many of my articles posted to KB, were posted to this thread.

The Serialized Romance Thread and the posting of mega long, mega detail, step-by-step how to articles on this thread, was the ONE AND ONLY thing each of the authors who fell under attack, had in common. When it was realized this thread on KB was the only connection between the authors who'd been attacked, they all (myself and more then a dozen others) promptly removed their posts from the thread. In a matter of hours, the thread went from a whopping 70+ forum pages long to it's current 32 pages long. All but two of the authors who came under fire during what is now referred to as "Serialized Romance Thread Attacks" left KB in a mass exodus. I was one of the two who remained, VmB was the other.

In order to protect ourselves, both me and the other author, stripped our forum signatures of any links back to our books for sale on Amazon, and we both took to lurking more often then posting. Once bitten, twice shy.

I was not aware, how deep the attacks had run. I only removed my posts off that one thread, and I did not go back and read them before deleting them. I was unaware, of how vastly our how-to article posts had been altered from how we had originally posted them. I would not become aware of this piece of the puzzle until a few days ago (first week of November 2014).

More issues began cropping up in mid-September, when I began to receive several very nasty private messages from various KB members. Their messages were baffling and confusing, as they suggested they were in response to my forum posts, and yet, the things they were suggesting I said, where not what I had said at all. I brushed the first few off, thinking they must have mistakenly messaged the wrong member, as I knew I had never said any of the things they were saying I had said. So I thought nothing of these messages assuming they were meant for someone else.

Around this same time, another forum, EAF (The Erotica Author Forum) which I had never heard of before, and I therefore was not a member, had server issues and went offline. One of it's members was also a member of KB and started a thread on KB asking if anyone knew what had happened to EAF. In the few days to follow more then 50 new members joined KB, all of them landing on the EAF thread, saying they would hang out there until EAF went back online.

I never posted on the EAF thread, but I read it as it grew by many pages every day. It wasn't clear what happened to EAF, but after a couple of weeks, some of the members decided to form a new forum, called Dirty Discourses. their reason? It wasn't because EAF was offline, it was because it their words, they were sick and tired of being "attacked" by KB members. They claimed that every time they posted, the KB members were respond with snarky comments. Thing was, there were no "regular" KB members posting on this thread and the EAF members were not posting anywhere else on KB but this thread. Their accusations were wild and baffling, growing more hysterical by the hour, as no KB members were responding to them at all.

The first week of October, another thread was started. The 7 Day Erotica Challenge Thread. It was started by a regular KB member who writes Erotica and was a friend of mine. Me and her and a few others chatted about what we were writing for the challenge and posted updates of sales as we published each challenge book. 

As I said, I don't go back and read my old posts. I knew what it was I had written and had no reason to think my posts said anything other then what I had originally said.

In mid-October, both the Challenge Thread and the EAF Thread, was suddenly bombarded with psychotic ranting posts by one of the Erotica authors, who began citing riots against what she called "The FAKE Erotica Authors" (she capitalized the words) and began posting wild hysterical accusations against several of the KB members (myself being her primary target for most of her rants, I knew this as she called me out by name in her posts). The new forum, Dirty Discourses, went live around this time, and upon joining, she upper her rage on KB, loudly boasting of how "ONLY REAL Erotica Authors" were allowed on DDfSeveral of us KB members thought either she had flipped her lid or she was a troll. Either way, we ignored her posts and continued chatting about our progress.

But she just kept on posting and started posting one crybaby rant after another on the EAF Thread, bragging that "only REAL erotica authors" were on DD's forum and how glad she was "FAKE authors" were not irritating her with their "annoying advice" and "boastful sales figures". 

Next thing I know, I'm getting called out on the forum blasted and told,I better not dare join the DD forum. I was like...what the...? What? Well, I've never been a member of EAF or it's new replacement DDF. Never heard of EAF til it went offline and DDF costs $10 to join. No secret I don't like paying money for stuff, anything, at all, ever. I buy print books because I refuse to pay money for an ebook I can't hold....and I buy print books used for .25c. I have an outhouse because I won't pay to have sewer hooked up. I won't even pay for book promo ads, to market my own books that I write, so why anyone thought I'd pay to join a forum which I had no way to even preview, I don't know. 

Did I mention I'm Scottish and I really don't like spending money, and won't unless absolutely necessary? Heck, most years my income doesn't even top $2k and I can live off that. Most years I make less in a year then most people make in a week. . You really think I'd waste $10 on joining a forum? Honey, that's a whole months worth of food for me. Homeless, since 2006. Grease fryer bomb. J.B., buddy of J.T. and D.K. blew up my house, remember?

Like I said, I save everything I write no matter how small or insignificant, so as I started going back, I opened KB on one browser window and my website copies of the original posts on another window so I could read them side by side, and the changes were flabbergasting at best, ludicrous at worst, and downright illegal in other cases, with several posts promoting pedophilia! OMG! I was the victim of child rape - repeated, over a long period of time. If there's one thing in this world I hate it's a pedophile! And every one locally knows my work to get local pedophiles out of church leadership positions. 

It was clear that whoever was editing my posts, not only knew I was a Gypsy, but also knew my absolute hatred for pedophiles and was using that to spite me by rewriting my posts, to be promoting books on Pedophile Erotica!

Good GOD!

The stuff they had written into my posts, just blew me away. Someone really put a lot of work and effort into doing this. I had to have taken them weeks to write all this stuff and days on end to go through my account and open each post one at a time to rewrite them. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of hours this person must have put into hacking my account in this manner.

In places where I had mentioned my income and sales, those had been changed, exploded out of proportion, amplified, and reworded to the point that they sounded like arrogant bragging and boasting - and that's not how I had written them at all! In the originals I had posted info on my sales, royalties, percentages, income, sales rank, ect. had all been erased and replaced with stupid phrases like "I made a bagillion dollars last week and you can kiss my ass." (another direct quote.)

If I said $10 they changed it to $100 or a $1,000 or even $10,000.  Pretty much every dollar amount I wrote had been changed to ad at least 2 extra zeros on the end. If I wrote $75, their edited version said $750 or $7,500.

It is very upsetting to me that they did this because I keep very accurate records of everything. I have Autism. I keep everything accurate, organized and in order. Do you have any idea how much inaccuracies eat at my brain?

And they were saying stuff about my writing method, saying it was "to write as much crap as fast as possible, woo hoo!" (another direct quote.) But then other posts bragged of "my book sold 1,000 copies today because I'm the best so there." (another direct quote)

My method of writing, is based on the DWS Method (Dean Wesley Smith), which is NOT to have one book reach high sales and high rank, but rather to write lots of lower ranking books in the smaller, poorer selling niches which are largely ignored by other writers who are chasing the latest trends. The idea is not to have a lot of sales over a few titles, but rather to only 1 or 2 sales per title per week over a wide range of titles. I do not have any big seller books. Most of them rank below 300,000 (3 sales a week), several rank below 1,000,000 (3 sales a month), and some even rank below 2,000,000 (1 sale every 60 days). My method of writing has always been lots of little titles, that each sell just 1 or 2 copies a week, thus why I have 600+ books out there.

I have Autism and I'm an obsessive compulsive writer, who hates marketing. The only way to make money on 1 or 2 books is to market the hell out of them. I don't want to do that, because it takes time away from writing. I'd rather write myself into oblivion and be putting out a new title every week or every month, and just keep on writing. Writing is what I do. So why bother to market a few books, when I can just let sale come organically on hundreds of books?

My advice on making money writing, has always been, lots of titles with only a few sales each, never a few titles and bombardments of sales.

And my income is not huge, either. I'm still not eligible for medical insurance because they say I'm too far below poverty level to get it. Yes, I have a lot of cars (if you consider 9 cars to be a lot), but I've NEVER paid more then $2,000 for any of them and that was for the motorhome, which means I only paid $2k for my house. My daily driver? That was my most expensive car and I only paid $900 for that. My cheapest car was the Goldeneagle, I paid $5 for it. These are NOT new cars, they are not in good condition, often when I buy they are not running and were sold for salvage...I happen to like to work on cars. I like restoring old junkers. Think about it. You take all my cars combined, I paid less for the grand total of them, then the average person makes for a SINGLE PAYMENT on the average new car.

All that bragging, boasting stuff about the cars being super expensive...listing the prices I supposedly paid for my cars being at $200k and up per car...that wasn't me...I didn't write that. That was some creep editing my posts! That was a nut job, looking at the types of cars I drive, and thinking I was a millionaire. Sugar Plum, the most I ever paid for a car was $900 for the Rhinestone Volvo. I don't own a single new car. The Volvo is my newest car and it's 25 years old this year. Most of my cars are both older then me AND not running. In fact, the Volvo is the ONLY one that is running, (besides the motorhome) that's why it's the only one I drive!

That's one thing about Gypsies, our cars are how we present ourselves to the world. Our cars are an extension of us and who we are. A lot of work goes into the designing, painting, and decorating one of these Gypsy cars. It took me 3 years to build The Dazzling Razzberry - it takes a long time to glue 2.5million marbles to a car! Like our painted wagons of old, our art cars of today are like family to us. You misrepresent one of our cars you misrepresent us. You don't dis family and you don't dis our cars!

GOOD GOD! Whoever the hell rewrote that stuff about my cars in my posts, was a complete loony-bin. I think I'm more upset about all the lies they said about my cars more then anything else. They completely misrepresented me and who I was by making my cars look like they were something completely different then they actually were. That was just so mean of them. I don't why they did it. 

And my mega-super-sized book collection? I buy books bulk on eBay .25c a pound. 75 pounds at a time (that's the post office limit for box weight) and that's $18.75 for 200 to 800 paperbacks depending on page count of each book. I spend $20 a month, to buy one of those bulk boxes a month. 

[Here is what a world record collection looks like: This is a stack of 8,000 Historical Romance Novels - a small fraction of the collection of the most Historical Romance novels owned in a single private collection.]

That's a grand total of $225 a year for 2,400 to 9,600 books a year, and I've been doing this for 40 years, which means, I've at minimum 384,000 IF that was the only way I buy books. I also got to every library in the state of Maine, day after they have a book sale and buy EVERYTHING that didn't sell for a $1 a bag. There's usually about 50 books in a bag, so I usually get 500 to 2,000 books in a single day for about $10. I also go to Salvation Army and Goodwill, and buy the ENTIRE BOX/BIN of their .05c books. That's a couple thousand books a month for under $10. 

[Pidgie and 400 Dungeons and Dragons books - a stack of books that stands 8 feet tall  - not in boxes because this is the office I use when writing the Quaraun books (which are 100% written by the roll of the dice)- behind that - 10,000 non-fiction books in boxes - this room is 14 feet x 15 feet and 10 feet tall - the path into the room between the books is 4 feet wide by 8 feet long - the boxes are stacked 5 boxes tall by 20 boxes deep]

AND I go dumpster diving for books, watch Craigslist for curbside listings of boxes of books, and buy entire tables of .25c books at flea markets.

In all I'm averaging as many as 20,000 new books added to my collect EACH YEAR FOR 40 YEARS and paying under $500 a year for them. 800,000 fiction paperback books, not including hardcovers, non-fiction, cookbooks, or comic books.

The two records that I have are these: I own more Historical Romance paperbacks (around 12,000) then anyone else in the world and I own more Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck comic books (around 10,000) then anyone in the world, because I own every copy in 13 languages.

[My current to be read stack - including 200 Star Trek novels - a small fraction of the 1,000+ Star Trek novels I own.]

I have 8,000 Erotica ebooks on my Kindle cloud ALL free downloads. Anyone who says anything otherwise about how many books I own, what sort of world records I have, and how much I pay for my books, is lying to you.

Well, that's the other thing that made me mad. There was a thread that asked how many books people had and I listed my books. Someone asked how I paid for so many books. I told, exactly what I just said above. 

And in going back over my posts - both those posts were changed as well. The numbers of books and how many records had both been changed, as well as the amount of money I spent on the books - the post I did not write, said I paid at minimum $75,000 a year for my books! 

The hacker went into my account and changed every post I had written those 7 years. They edited all my helpful responses, changing them into mean snark, putting people down, calling them "welfare bums" and saying that they "stupid" and their "lack of income" was "proof" of that.

I checked the dates. Whoever was doing this was logging in daily. At the top of each post you make on KB is the date and time the post was made. At the bottom of every edited post is the date and time of the edit. On my posts made during the months of August, September, and October 2014, the two times were hours apart. I would usually post on KB in the morning (4AM to 6AM) and so all of my posts were started in early morning hours. The time the hacker edited the posts would be in the afternoon or evening of the same day (noon to 6PM).  On posts made before August, to 7 years back, nearly all of the edits were made in October 2014.

The hacker was changing my posts without my knowledge and continued to do so until I found out about it October 27, 2014, at which point I set out to undo their edits and restore my posts back to their original states. I keep copies of everything, so it was a simple matter to delete their edited posts and paste the original back into it's place. I spent several days doing this.

On November 10, 2014, when I posted a new post, I noticed my signature quote had been changed. It was a snarky reference to the Rolls Royce photos. So I went back and checked. The posts, I had restored, had been edited AGAIN, to even worse snark then they had been the first time.

That same day L.G. was flipping out in hysterics on every thread on the site. Doing her "report all EelKat's posts" blah, blah, blah. While JdP, now EA, was likewise lashing out her anti-EelKat posts, with the 50+ "EAF Erotica Authors" cheering her on.

I had spent a week, undoing the damage the hacker had done, only to have them redo it as fast as I corrected it. 

On the next day I changed my password and deleted all 1,371 posts off of KBoards, as it was easier then trying to go back in and edit each post one at a time to restore the original contents.

Why did I not stay and fight? Why did I just delete my posts and leave?

I spent 5 months of 2014 bedridden from a back, hip, and knee injury that happened February 2014. I'm still not fully recovered from that as it complicated a previous illness I already had. I was in and out of the hospital several times in October, and by the time I found out on November 11th what was going on, my health had reached a "danger zone" due to a septic infection doctors had overlooked. 

On November 10th I was not well enough to want to even try to deal with the online shit. I had more important offline shit to deal with and so rather then do anything to defend myself against the trolls, I simply deleted every post off every forum, and took all my blogs offline. 

I was admitted into the hospital November 14 in critical condition and I almost died. Like I said, the stupid silly online drama was not a very high priority at that point, considering doctors were pretty sure I wouldn't even make it to the end of the week.

I was rushed back into the hospital for surgery on December 2, 2014 and the first signs that my health was coming back around did not show up until December 17, 2014. Doctor still had me listed as "in critical condition" until December 27, 2014

I am writing this today on February 20, 2015 from my bed. I'm still not well enough to be back up and around. Because of my health issues all the book releases due in October, November, December, January, and February got pushed back, with publication dates unknown because I'm simply not well enough to sit up and type for long periods of time.

That is why I deleted my posts. My health is simply not well enough to bother dealing with the stress. That and no other reason. I don't care what other people are telling you. All those things they are telling you, simply is not true. 

The members involved in this attack, every one of them came from the EAF forum. They were NOT long time regular members of KBoards. They were just petty, whinny, jealous crybabies looking for a bone to pick and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. What they did was extremely undignified and unprofessional and in the long run, they are only hurting themselves and their own careers, because what they did, they did on a Google searchable public forum in front of the whole world to see.

I have my own life to live, my own family to take care of, my own career to run...I can't be bothered to to join in on some stupid, petty forum war. They want to fight with someone? Fine. Just remember it takes 2 to fight. I choose to pick my battles. I stand up and fight against things that are important. Guess what? They were not important.  Those people were nothing to me but stupid, racist slugs, not worthy of my time or effort. And so rather then join in on their little war, I chose to simply leave and take all my old helpful posts with me.

Simple fact of the matter is this: They can not attack me, if I'm not there for them to attack. They can not hack my posts and rewrite them into stupid chicken shit lies, if I have no posts for them to hack. 

I have better things to do with my time, then fight with forum trolls.

I was not the only member whose account was hacked in this manner. Nearly every "minority race" member who had replied on that "minority race" thread, had their account attacked and/or hacked. (Several of them have contacted me to tel me that I wasn't alone that they too had been attacks and/or hacked) I noticed it in October, that two members suddenly started saying really wild things that were completely out of character. D.D. for example had formerly been a very helpful member and suddenly, was a gibbering braggart, claiming to be earning $30,000 a month while calling that "low income". L.G. another formerly helpful member, suddenly was also claiming to be earning insane amounts of money ($14k a week in one post) and sticking it to everyone not making enough to be "in the club".

It was utterly insane the way the entire of Kboards had turned into a "I make more money then you" riot for a while. But what was worse, was when I discovered my posts were like that too! Good god! That was one of the things the hacker had done to my posts and it made me wonder how many of these other crazy money claims were a result of a hacker as well!

Through out most of 2007 to 2013 Squidoo was my #1 source of income. As one of Squidoo's top 50 highest paid members (number 3 out of nearly 2 million members) I was getting between $75-$200 per month, (their highest paid member was paid an average of $600 per month - no, there was NO ONE getting rich on Squidoo - after all, the company went bankrupt and no longer exists.) This was money paid to be directly from Squidoo, and not additional money that is paid to me by affiliate links promoted on Squidoo lenses. 

But think about it, just stop and think about it: Squidoo had me on their list as highest paid member #3 and I ONLY made between $75-$200 per month. That's not much. I had mentioned on KBoards once that Squidoo had said this (it was a thread asking what other ways people made money online, other then publishing books on Kindle) and the immediate response from V.M. was “wow at the rate you are gathering world records, you ought to have a record for it” followed by a lot of snark claiming that I was claiming to be a millionaire. (The person who left that comment is under suspicion of being the hacker/hacked account as well, because they left the comment in reply to the hacker's EDITED version, BEFORE the hacker edited it.)

Wait...what? How is that a record? It was a sales chart Squidoo had on their website, which showed the names of the top 50 highest paid members and I was #3 on the list. Under JaguarJulie at #2 and SquidPirate at #1.  

This by the way, was one of the posts the KBoard hacker edited. When I went back and read it 2 months later, the hacker had edited the post to say I was #1 on the list and that I was making $750 - $2,000 a month on Squidoo! You can see what I meant, when I say the hacker was only making minor changes to some things, but they ended up making it look like I was arrogant and bragging and making way more money then I was.  There is a heck of a big difference between $75-$200 per month  and $750-$2,000 per month! I made LESS per year on Squidoo, then the hacker was claiming I made per month! 

This was one of the things that really upset me about the hacker's changes made to my KBoards posts. The original post, the one I ACTUALLY WROTE was pointing out that is it REALLY HARD to make a full-time income online, if it was true what Squidoo said, that I was their #3 highest paid member. Because I wasn't getting paid squat from Squidoo. $200 a month? And I was their #3 highest paid member? That is VERY discouraging actually, because here I was thinking I wasn't earning much at all, and suddenly Squidoo is slapping a squid-badge award on my account to tell everybody I'm in the top 50 highest paid members of all time club? (Squidoo had a club for everything and badges for everything, so everybody had a long list of badges slapped  onto their profile page – sadly they would not let us disable that feature. I really hated those badges. They were very annoying and often silly and childish.)

So, in the post on KBoards that I ACTUALLY WROTE, I had said:

"Squidoo had listed me as their #3 highest paid member and yet I was only earning between $75-$200 per month and it was really discouraging because it made me realize, that if after 7 years and 600 lenses(articles) I was still only at under $200 a month and Squidoo was making a big deal out of it, claiming that was a lot of money, it made me realize that Squidoo was a dead end street that was never gonna pan out into a full-time income."

I had written that post in August. When I reread my KBoards posts in Oct/Nov after I discovered my account was hacked, that post had been edited to say that

"I was Squidoo's #1 member I was earning between $750-$2,000 per month and it was really amazing because it made me realize, that if after 7 years and 600 lenses(articles) I was the greatest writer on the planet and Squidoo was making a big deal out of it."

I bolded what I wrote vs what they changed in the hacked post. You can see the big difference it made, just those few changes.

It may not seem like much when it's just 1 or 2 posts, but the hacker did this to at least 1,371 of my KBoards forum posts! (I read 1,371 of them before I got so fed up and disgusted, I just deleted everything without reading the rest.)

And that wasn't the only thing. They added weird shit about me supposedly being a millionaire. Me? a millionaire? What the flying fuck?

Where do you get off calling me a millionaire? Or claiming, I'm a millionaire?

I mean, I write Bizarro, a little, itty, bitty, teeny, weeny, tiny niche genre that the average person has never even heard of. All of my books are aimed at underground small niche markets, there isn't a big box store on the planet that would carry the books I write. I've been small-vanity-press indie published from 1978 to 2012, I didn't have any books available to the mass market before 2012, when I started putting my books up on Kindle.

Before 2012, if you didn't shop at local underground bookstores, you probably never read one of my books, because they are not exactly easy to find copies of. A lot of my books only had limited runs of 100 copies, not many had runs over 1,000 copies, and only the most popular got reprinted in the LARGEST runs I did: 7,000 copies.

I have NEVER had a physical print book sell more then 7,000 copies, because I've never printed up more then 7,000 copies of any title.

And you also have to consider, a large majority of my books, I gave away free, I wasn't TRYING to make money with them, so half the time I didn't even bother to sell them, I just gave them to people who wanted them.

The Twighlight Manor series has COST me more money then it ever made. Do you know how expensive it is to go to a local print shop and have them print up books for you? That's what I did. There was no big house publisher.

My traditionally published stuff, was short stories and articles published in magazines. Not my books. I've always self-published my books.

I'm very upset that someone would hack my account, impersonate me, and rewrite my posts to make it look like I was the one saying those stupid things. It was very mean of them to do this to me.

When LG and JDP/EA said they intended to destroy my career, apparently what they meant was they intended to destroy my career by destroying my forum reputation. It was a very hateful thing these people did.

Kindle made it even easier for me to give away free books, except, thanks to these bullies I have stopped doing that.

The Quaraun series, every volume does the same thing: sells 100 to 200 copies day 1 and 2, (during it's .99c intro price) then 1 to 3 copies a week after that (at it's full cover price). That means that each volume makes about $100 it's first month and about $35 each month after that.

How exactly is $35 a month = me being a millionaire? I don't know where you are coming up with your wild accusations that I'm a millionaire.

And YES, I did see the hotlinked photos, you hotlinked off of my site here.

The one you were posting into my Kboards posts, to try to "prove" I was a millionair. THESE:

They hotlinked those photos off of my site, then hacked my Kboards account, and changed my posts, and added those pictures (using the links from my site here to make people think I did it) and then posted a hysterical bragging rant, saying I owned these cars?

You idiots! Did you really think I wasn't going to notice that?

If you bullies had half a brain, you could see that those are computer generated works of art and NOT photos of real cars. I made those pictures on a software program, you idiot. I'm an artist remember. And I design art cars. REMEMBER? How did you think those were real photographs of real cars?

YES, I designed them. YES, they are Rolls Royces. YES, I did contact a Rolls Royce dealer to find out how much it would cost to build one. YES, he did tell me it would cost $700,000 to build EACH of those cars. NO, I did not have them built. NO, I do not own them.

For those who don't know, in about May 2014, me and some of my friends on FaceBook decided to design "dream cars" and then find out how much it would cost to build them, and we posted those picture and the cost to build info on our FaceBook walls. I uploaded to photos here to my site and then posted the links on FaceBook.

The fact that the hacker, knew how to find the links (because they are not publically posted on my website, prior to me posting them here, right now) and knew the cost of building the car, only means that the hacker who hacked my Kboards account, was following me on FaceBook, the only place that information was posted.

On KBoards, the hacker, posted those pictures, made the claim (using my account to make the claim) that I owned both of these cars and had paid varying amounts for them, depending on which post you read. In one post it said $200,000, in another it said $600,000 and so on.

The fact that the hacker did that, just absolutely disgusted me.

 Like I said, they went out of their way to make me sound like a gibbering, arrogant, idiot.

But my account wasn't the only one. There were dozens of authors who suddenly, started posting these same sorts of bragging posts and claiming to be millionaires. 

The whole of KBoards had turned into a nightmare of "I make more money then you" and at the same time, no one making these claims, had any clue they were making the claims, because in each case, it was someone else hacking into their account and editing their posts.

What did these members have in common? They were not white. They had all posted on that minority character thread.

Like I said, there were multiple issues, it wasn't just one thing. Several different members got swept up into this frenzied herd mentality attack. Each one had their own reasons for joining and each one was attacking a different author. 73 authors were under attack at the time I left Kboards, who knows how many more have been attacked in the 7 months since then (yes, this happened 7 months ago, and they are still lashing out at me. They launched yet another attack, this time on Amazon, on March 5, 2015, yes a DIFFERENT attack from the 52 account review attack. This time they contacted Amazon demanding the removal of my books from the website. Amazon has put the entire Quaraun series under review and put the adult tag on every volume --- the first time Amazon has ever put the adult tag on a non-Erotica book.)

One author was attacked for having shape-shifters in her books, with the attackers calling her books beastility. (I read her books, they are not beastility.)

Multiple black authors were attacked for having black characters and/or interracial couples.

I was one of two authors attacked because we were by race a Gypsy.

A Muslim author was attacked for showing a veiled woman on the cover of her book, called a "terrorist" accused of promoting "terrorism" simple because her book had a character wearing a hijab. I read the book. It was Sweet Romance story, no different then any other Romance story out there. Boy meets girl and falls in love. The girl just happened to be Muslim and wearing a hijab. 

Three authors were attacked for featuring a character suicide in their books.

This is wrong.

This is so wrong.

This shouldn't be happening.

It is uncalled for and it downright evil.

There is not justifiable reason for any of these attacks on any of these authors. This culture of hate is completely and utterly uncalled for.

The list just keeps going. 73 authors were attacked by a roving gang of 50+ other author who just lashed out, for no real reason at all, other then to spew bigoted, racist hate at every author they felt wasn't "good enough" for whatever reason they could think of.

What happened on Kboards was a despicable disgrace. The problem is, this is not unique to Kboards. This sort of thing is on the rise on every forum across the internet. And not just on author forums. It's happening everywhere on every forum of every topic.

It's just the first time this sort of thing happened on Kboards. The mods were unprepared for an attack of this magnitude. When a few people bicker the mods shut the fight down. But this wasn't a few people. This was an all out waged war, staged by a group a 50+ authors all calling themselves "The EAF Erotica Authors". They all ojoined Kboards the same day, they all made comments saying they HAD BEEN TOLD TO JOIN by one of Kboards' members. They all say they were TOLD to join and come DEFEND one author from the other authors.

The Kboards mods were completely unprepared for a full on war, with 50 new members joining in a single day and tearing the forum to hell. And that was just the first day. More then 300 new members, all claiming to be "EAF Erotica Authors" joined Kboards in the days to follow...joined for the specific and sole purpose to ATTACK. They bragged of this over and over again in their posts.

They were bad enough when they first joined, but when they found out they had a Scottish member on the forum, several of them flipped out, claiming to be "pro UK" and "anti-Scots", matters were made worse when they realized I was not only Scottish, but I was a Gypsy. They went out of their minds at the idea that a Gypsy would dare be on the internet at all. They freaking flipped out.

I had heard rumours of how much Europeans hate Gypsies, but this was my first time encountering the levels of vehement hatred these people had my race.

And around here, local people are always wanting to know: Do Gypsies believe it is ever possible to be free of racial tension? Well, I was an active, and well liked, member of KBoards for 7 years. I never mentioned my race, once in those 7 years. The majority of members are white Americans and white Brits. They assumed I, like them, was white.

But then a "minority" thread started and everyone was asking everyone else "So, what race are you?" Well over 90% of the members of KBoards are white, and they were stunned to find they had any non-white members at all. They tolerated the blacks and Asians, but there were two members who they attacked brutally. Me a Scottish Gypsy and another woman, who was a Romany Showman. Me and this other woman, we were both seen as evil. We were both told we were evil. We were both told that we didn't deserve to live, because of our race.

No everyone on KBoards is a self-righteous, white supremacists prick, but they are there and they are loud and they are fanatically violent...and they didn't just attack me online - some of them, showed up here in Maine. Right here in Old Orchard Beach. They threatened my family in person. That's why I deleted my posts off KBoards. They showed up at my tent-tarp next to my motorhome, here on the empty lot next to the hole in the ground where the bomb took out my house in 2006. They wanted to see the tent for themselves - and they slashed it up. They ripped up my clothes, they threatened my family. Because we are Gypsies. They came all the way here to Maine, to threaten to kill me and my family, because they didn't want Gypsies on KBoards. I deleted my posts the next day and have not been back to KBoards.

Several members of KBoards have contacted me these past few weeks to ask why I left and deleted my posts and if I'll return. They say they miss me and want me back. I've not told them why I left. I told them, my account was hacked, but I didn't tell them the details. I didn't tell them about what happened offline, here in Maine.

Will I ever return to KBoards? Not likely. I might, if I thought it was safe. But I didn't just leave KBoards. I left every forum. I didn't just delete my posts, I also deleted all 34 of my blogs and all my HubPages and pretty much everything on every account everywhere online.

This is the second time a person I meet on a forum,  threatened my family. The first time was in 2006 and that guy came with a bomb and blew up our house.

Will I return to KB?

Not until the white members of KBoards start a thread and post a very public apology, not only to me, but to every minority member and to those 73 authors they attacked and to the families of the 2 authors who died, during this "KBoard Incident." And they owe the Town Hall of Old Orchard Beach, Maine $15,000 to cleanup the vandalism of the offline attack, which they have until April 2015 to pay.

Not until KBoards actual starts enforcing the rule they have in their ToS, which states:

*"By participating in any service of KBoards Forums, you agree not to:

   *v. use KBoards Forums to disseminate any inappropriate, defamatory, libelous, threatening, infringing, obscene, or unlawful material or information.

   *vi: reveal personally identifiable information about another member, including but not limited to real name, address, and phone number, without that member's specific permission.

   vii: violate any copyright law, or other intellectual property law,

   *viii: violate any criminal statute

*By participating in KBoards Forums, you agree not to impersonate any person or entity or falsely represent your affiliation with any person or entity.

Someone was impersonating me on KBoards, using my account to make libelous, slanderous, and defamatory statements. They used my account to try to damage my reputation and I don't like that. If you did it as a "joke", it was not funny, I'm not laughing, and I am very upset about this.

More then a dozen members were harassing me through private messages, as a result of the hacker's impersonation posts.  You got a lot of people very angry at me, for something I didn't even do! If you did it as a "joke", it was not funny, I'm not laughing, and I am very upset about this.

You posted my real name and home address on the forum, and someone showed up in person to threaten my family. This is a very serious crime. Do you know that? Do you have enough brain to know that this sort of crime comes with a prison sentence? Prison. Not jail. Prison. 

As a  result of the attack EAF and it's "Erotica stock photography" porn site have been shut down. I still don't know what EAF was. The site was taken offline before I found out there was a site, so still clueless as to what an EAF is or who these EAF authors thought they were that they thought they could get away with staging an attack like this on another forum.

Were I black or Asian, perhaps the new EAF members of KBoards would not have done these attacks on my account. But they were white Brits and I was a Scottish Gypsy, and so yet again, I find that in white America, I have no rights, because in the eyes of the white man, I'm not human.

I was on KBoards posting daily for 7 years. Those people were my friends for 7 years. Until the day they found out I was  Gypsy and then they let their true colors fly. I'm still the exact same person I was, for those 7 years.

Nothing changed. I'm still me. I'm the exact same me I was 7 years ago. I'm 

All that changed was they found out what race and culture I am. Seven years of friendship meant NOTHING to those people. They hate Gypsies so much that, it didn't matter to them, who I was, or long we'd known each other. They turned on me for no reason at all. Not one. I did nothing to them. I helped them. Most of them, wouldn't even have their publishing careers at all if it hadn't been for me and those 1,371 how-to articles I wrote for them. They were written in answer to direct questions which were sent to me via private messages.

These were not minor articles, 1,000 words like you see on most site. These were book length, none of them under 10,000 words, several over 20,000 words, the longest one was over 40,000 words - as long as a novel.

Do Gypsies believe it is ever possible to be free of racial tension?

Not until white folks stop hating non-whites.

I don't understand why this roving group of rabid wolf authors decided to attack me or my books. I didn't know any of them. I never had contact with any of them. 

I did find it disturbing that they lashed out at me, more because of my DNA, then because of my books. See, I'm used to random strangers attacking my books, but these people were attack me via my books, that was different. And they were spreading lies about me and who I am.

The thing I found most disturbing about these accusations, was that these people were saying they lived in Europe, and saying that I was stealing from them, I was kidnapping babies, I was squatting on their land... I live in Maine, in America, on a farm, that has been in my family since 1530. My family has never lived anywhere else.

And considering that there are only 2,000 REAL Gypsies, the race, on the planet and most of them are settled farmers, half of them in the USA, the half in Scotland, and NONE, not one, anywhere else on the planet, I'd say that Europeans need to get their heads out of their asses and take a good long look at the creeps who are running around in their country PRETENDING to be "gypsies", because they ARE NOT US! And we are sick of people using our name to describe criminals nomads, and transiates.

We Gypsies don't even travel around for crying out loud! We are farmers. Have you ever tried to travel with 500 or more animals? It doesn't happen! You think it's easy to haul fields of corn and carrots around behind a caravan? How stupid are you people? Our people have been settled half in America the other half in Scotland for 500 freaking years! If you've got yourself a band of people travelling around calling themselves Gypsies, you know right off the bat they are lying to you about who they are, because we, the REAL Gypsies, we don't travel! We have crops to tend, animals to feed, you think we are just able to uproot our farms and plop them down in your cities? Good god! Haven't you people got a brain?

I think it's pretty damned shitty of the Europeans to run around flapping their mouths off about us, when we don't even live in their damned countries! 

Never forget, that while there are an estimated 200,000 Irish Travellers just in America alone (millions more in Europe) and there are an estimated 12 million Roma worldwide (1 million of which are in America) there are only 2,000 confirmed Indigenous Highland Travelling Gypsies of Scotland left on the entire planet. If they are not part of the Indigenous Highland Gypsy clans of Scotland, they do not have Gypsy blood. Without Scottish Gypsy DNA they have no right to be lying to you and calling themselves Gypsies.

If they've got problems with Romas tearing their towns apart, then SAY you got problems with ROMAS tearing your freaking towns apart. Don't say it's us Gypsies when it's not!

If they've got problems with Irish Travellers stealing you blind, then SAY you got problems with Irish Travellers stealing you blind. Don't say it's us Gypsies when it's not!

The Romas ARE NOT Gypsies!

The Travellers ARE NOT Gypsies!

They are not us and we are not them, stop blaming us for something they did to you! We don't have any DNA link to them at all! They are not our people.

Living in a caravan does not make you a Gypsy!

Being a Roma does not make you a Gypsy!

Being a Traveller does not make you a Gypsy!

Being a psychic card reader does not make you a Gypsy!

Living in a motorhome does not make you a Gypsy!

Owning a crystal ball does not make you a Gypsy!

Belly dancing does not make you a Gypsy!

Being a fortune teller does not make you a Gypsy!

Throwing a big fat super bling wedding does not make you a Gypsy!

RVing across America does not make you a Gypsy!

Picking pockets does not make you a Gypsy!

Wearing a purple skirt and a scarf with gold coins does not make you a Gypsy!

Begging for money does not make you a Gypsy!

Being homeless does not make you a Gypsy!

Backpacking across Europe does not make you a Gypsy!

STOP CALLING THOSE THINGS GYPSIES!!!!

One thing and one thing only makes you a Gypsy: your DNA. There are only 2,000 people on the planet with REAL Gypsy DNA. If you ain't got Gypsy DNA in your blood, you ain't no Gypsy and ain't got no right to be abusing the name of our race. And if you ain't related to me personally, I can guarantee you ain't got Gypsy DNA. I know the names of almost every person known to be a REAL Gypsy, and that's because we are all related. I can also guarantee, that whoever it is, squatting on your land in Europe, picking your pockets, robbing you blind, they are not Gypsies, because we don't have any family outside of America and Scotland, and they are all settled farmers every one of them.

I actually wasn't aware of the European resentment for "gypsies" until the KBoards incident occurred. That was my first time encountering a European. I didn’t know the type of hate filled, sick headed bastards they were. KBoards taught me right fast that white Brits are ten times more vile hearted and evil then white Americans. Far less dignified, far more arrogant, far more self-righteious. I though hate mongering among white Americans was bad, but it ain’t nothing compared to the hate mongering of white Brits. And they pretended to be my friends for 7 years. That makes them even more back stabbing and sneaky then white Americans are. 

Over a dozen Erotica authors on KBoards, all from the UK, just lashed out in psychotic, vehement hatred the second they found out I was a Gypsy. I had no clue what it was they were flipping out about. They started flipping out in August, but they went total nut-job psycho crazy in October and it baffled the heck out of me, because I had no clue what they were even talking about. I've never had much contact with white society my whole life, so I wasn't aware of the British stereotypes, which are vastly different from the American stereotypes. 

The Brits, or at least the few dozen of them that were flipping out on Kboards, are of the belief that Gypsies are child sex slave racketeers, pedophiles, and promoters of child porn. And they tried to "prove" that by hacking my KBoard account and posting horrible nasty stuff glorify child sex, child porn, and pedophile Erotica. It was horrible the stuff they posted on my account while pretending that they were me. They ought to be shot in the head for the sick, vile, perverted load of crap they were posting on my account. They thought nothing of impersonating me an posting that vile child abusing shit via my account to make it look like I was he one posting it! 

What kind of sick bastard does something like that? As sick and vile as the white Americans are, they aren’t even that bad! And the woman behind it? Good God, she’s one of the world’s top Erotica authors! It was almost like she was thinking “I’m a big name author, I can get away with anything. La La La!” Yeah, well, look at her now. EAF has been shut down and so was the site selling porn photography. Why? Because the girld being fucked in the photos were minors. That sick bitch, she was doing the very thing she was accusing me of doing! No wonder she had access to child porn photos to post via my account after she hacked into it! I hope they do ore then shut down Erotia Author Forum and it’s porn photo selling sister site - I hope that bitch goes to prison for that. Selling pictures of children like that? How does she even deserve to live? God, people like her make me sick.

I don't understand why these people thought they were justified in doing that to my account. If a white person did that to a black person’s account, they'd be doing jail time, but white people think it's okay to do something like that to Gypsies. Three of the authors involved are really famous big name authors too. One of them is one of the top erotica authors in the world. And she's a freaking white supremacist bigot. Good god, and she owns two forums for Erotica authors. It's no wonder EAF and DD forums have people on KBoards complaining they don't let colored, gay, or minority authors join the EAF and DD forums. They certainly flew their Gypsy-hating white power flags high on KBoards. 

But, evil is as evil does, and you can't do evil acts without karma coming back to bite you in the ass. I'm told one of her forums EAF is in legal trouble for selling underaged porn photography for Erotica book covers. Funny, here she was falsely accusing me of child porn, when she was actually doing it. How ironic is that? No wonder she was screaming child porn so loudly at others, she was trying to draw attention away from her own child porn promoting site. Pitiful. and to think I used to buy her books. Won't be doing that anymore.

What goes around comes around. Came around fast for her. It was only three months ago she was flipping out in my private messages on KBoards and hacking my public posts. By their fruits ye shall know them. Crazy woman runs around attacking people on forums, can't have anything but rotten fruit in her soul now can she?

Well, she certainly didn't do much to represent her people as trustworthy. How are we Gypsies in America supposed to trust UK white folks when the first time we cross paths with a UK white folk, she happens to be a psycho crazy pro-white, color hating bigot that tries to frame minority races on a forum with libel, slander, and defamation of character by hacking their accounts and impersonating them to try to make them look evil? She doesn't know me from Adam, all she knew was my race, was Scottish Gypsy and knowing that sent her over the edge into crazy loony toonsville. What an undignified creep! If she’s any representation of what white Europeans are like, well damn, they can all jump off a cliff for all I  care. The world doesn’t need shit like that clinging to it.

So, yeah, that was my first encounter with a European and their views on Gypsies. Kind of left a bad taste in my mouth and doesn't make me want to ever encounter another white European, that's for sure. But then, that would make me as bad as her, now wouldn't it, if I was to jump to conclusions and judge all white Europeans based solely off the first white European I encountered, right? I'm content to think she was a radical, fundamentalist fanatic who doesn't represent her entire race, because, hey, David Bowie's a white Brit and he married a black woman, so white Europeans can't all be color-hating racist bigots right?

But you gotta keep in mind, I’m "married" to a white  European. My "husband’s" a white immigrant from Austria. He’s got American citizenship now, but he’s still a white dude from Europe and he’s don’t act like those Gypsy hating piece of shit crap head bigots were acting like on KBoards, so I know not all white Europeans are dick head pieces of shit, but damn, it's hard to not think that when one of them attacks you. You know? It makes you wonder, are  they all like that or is it just this one I encountered who's like this?


Answer to reader question about Free ebooks (or the recent lack of free books since the KBoards incident.)

With the release of a new Quaraun book last week, came the questions from several readers of: "When will it be available for free?"

Since 2010, every Kindle book release from all of my pennames, has ALWAYS been made free the first week of it's release, via Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days, which I renew and allow the books to be given away for free for 5 days out of every 90 days. Because 170+ of my 600+ titles are in KDP Select, I had free books being given away, EVERY DAY all year long. Until December.

Because of the way my account was set up, all of my Kindle books were due to be renewed for Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days program on December 28, 2014.

Because of the KBoards Incident I did not renew it. And the answer is:

NO. My books will never again, or at least not for a very long time, be made available for free via Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days program. If you want to know why, READ THIS.

I have kept them in Kindle's Kindle Unlimited Program, and you can still get them free via that program, but they charge you a monthly fee, I'm not sure what the fee is, I'm not a member of KU, I've never purchased books via that program, so I don't know how that works. Last I knew they charged $10 a month to download an unlimited number of free books for 30 days. As of right now, my books are still in that program, so you can still get them free that way.

There are a limited number of readers, long time fans, you know who you are, who I've given you free books in the past, don't worry, I'll still do that. You know how to contact me and how to get the books. 

The books ARE enrolled in Kindle's KDP Select 5 Day Count Down Deals program, which means, they will be .99c for 5 days. That will be happening in March and it will be the ONLY time the Quaraun books go on sale between now and May 2015.

Otherwise the cover price is $7.99 for titles over 90 days old and $2.99 for titles under 90 days old.

YES. The cover prices on ALL titles across all pennames have gone up.

YES. ALL of my .99c titles are now $2.99

YES. ALL of my $1.49 titles are now $2.99 

YES. ALL of my $1.99 titles are now $2.99

YES. ALL of my $2.99 titles are now $3.99

YES. ALL of my $3.99, $4.99, & $5.99 titles are now $7.99

YES. ALL of my $7.99 titles are now $9.99

No. I no longer have ANY FREE books. AT ALL.

No. I no longer have ANY .99c books. AT ALL.

No. I no longer have ANY $1.49 books. AT ALL.

No. I no longer have ANY $1.99 books. AT ALL.

YES. ALL new releases (even short stories) will now be starting at $2.99 instead of .99c for, at least the next 90 days, probably longer. (Short stories will not increase in price over time, they will simply stay at $2.99)

YES. All titles in the Quaraun series will now be increasing to $4.99 sale price instead of $3.99 sale price after it's 30 day new release period.

YES. All titles in the Quaraun series will now be increasing to $5.99 sale price instead of $4.99 sale price after it's 60 day new release period.

YES. All titles in the Quaraun series will now be increasing to $7.99 cover price instead of $5.99 cover price after it's 90 day new release period.

So...NO...newest release for the Quaraun series (Into The Swamp of Death) is NOT going to be available via Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days program, at least not for a while. Nor will any of the other 7 Quaraun titles due out between now and April have FREE days, either. The renewal date does not come up again until April, so IF I do decided to enrol it in Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days program it won't be before mid-April. Let's see, it went live February 5th and the program renewal dates run every 90 days, so the renewal date for this book is April 5th.

YES. ALL of my titles, will have five .99c sale days once every 90 days, instead of 5 FREE days once every 90 days, because Amazon does not allow them to be in BOTH the Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days program AND Kindle's KDP Select 5 Day Count Down Deals program. Amazon makes us choose one or the other and due to the recent KBoards Incident, I have decided to opt out of  Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days program and move my books into Kindle's KDP Select 5 Day Count Down Deals program

Why has this happened? Why the change? Why no more free books? Why the higher prices?

My books were attacked by 52 individual accounts, but not 52 individual people. There appeared to be fewer then 10 people involved. It was one author and a few of their friends and or family members, with a whole bunch of fake Amazon accounts for each person. It was fairly obvious at one point that most of the conversation was a single person, posting with multiple accounts

Each author, in order to  leave "verified" reviews, downloaded (and then returned unread, minutes later) the books on their Kindle's KDP Select 5 Free Days program free days.

In other words, had these books NOT been available for FREE, this particular person, would not have been able to download a single book, 52 times, via 52 fake accounts, and then have longs discussions with themself across said 52 fake accounts.

I'm not sure when this event occurred, as I've never read my Amazon reviews before. I only read them now, because a local friend asked me: "Hey what in the heck is going on on your book?" and they then told me they "saw a couple of authors battling it out in the comments on a review" of one of my books.  They told me that several of my books were "under heavy fire" and that "Vampire Leprechaun is really taking a beaten". It was first week of December 2014, that they alerted me to this. 

Uncertain as to what they were talking about I went to Amazon to see what was going on. I rarely log in on Amazon, only ever logging in on KDP, so I had no idea the books in question had any reviews on them at all.

What I found was that four of my books had each received 52 IDENTICAL (spam) reviews (yes, a single person left a grand total of 208 one-star reviews.)

Each "review" was not an actual review, and instead read: "This book was written by a Gypsy scumbag."

Some said: "Don't buy books written by a Gypsy scumbag."

Some comments said: “Don’t buy books from EelKat, she’s nothing but a low life Gypsy scum”

One said: "I know what Erotica is and you don't because you're a Mormon Gypsy scumbag with fairies on the brain nahnah nahnah nah!"

Others said “Gypsies steal babies to sell for child porn and sex slaves, buying books written by Gypsies helps fund child porn”

And others said “I lived in Romania, I know for a fact that the only good Gypsy is a dead Gypsy”

Another posted my home address and said “Here’s where the Gypsy scumbag lives, go shoot her in the head, she deserves it, she’s a Gypsy, shoot them all, make the world a better place”.

These were protesters, demanding a boycott.

Now, 1 star reviews from actual readers, are fine. I know my books are not for everyone and I know, because I write in Scottish English, a lot of Americans and Brits get really upset over what they falsely assume to be typos, speller mistakes, and grammar errors. (They are not - Scottish English is quite a bit different from either American English or UK english.) But, yeah 1 star reviews from actual readers who either didn't like the book or had trouble with reading Scottish English, those are fine. Those are great, they tell other readers about the book. No problem with them at all.

But this wasn't what was going on in this situation.  As you can see, these were not book reviews. I mean, two of those comments are death threats and all of them are liable, slanderous, defamation of character. And there were 52 of these on each of four of my books

What this was, was a single person who, for whatever reason, really hates Gypsies, and created 52 fake Amazon accounts to spread anti-Gypsy propaganda.

The thing that got really ridiculous was, after this person, created 52 fake Amazon accounts, left 52 fake reviews on each book, they next proceeded to comment on the reviews - all 52 of their selves - and continued to pretend to be 52 people having themselves a right old Gypsy bashing hate feast with a strange and incomprehensable pro-Erotica twist. It was this whole weird "down with Gypsies" and "yay for Erotica" and "I know what Erotica is and you don't because you're a Mormon Gypsy scumbag with fairies on the brain nahnah nahnah nah!" conversation that made no real sense at all.

So, I went and made myself some BigCheesy Jiffy Pop, grabbed a Pomegranate Blue Acai Berry sparkling water and sat down to read this weird mess of a single author having a 52 account meltdown in the reviews of my books.

After the Teddy Bear Meltdown, I think this was the most insane thing I've ever seen. 

1 person

52 accounts

300+ comments 

A weird attempt to spread hate for my race, culture, and religion, while promoting Erotica, in the book reviews of a book about a suicidal Elf.

I don't know how to describe this other then...it was the weirdest thing I've ever read, and I write Bizarro!

This person created 50 Gypsy hating personas and 2 devil's advocate pro-Gypsy personas, so that acount #1 could say "I hate Gypsies" while accounts #2 through 50 patted account #1 on the back with lots of "You go girl, we hate Gypsies too" and accounts #51 and 52, came in to argue, thus giving account #1 reason to rant some more Gypsy hate.

And I'm just reading this and going...WOW...this person is crazier then the Silver Salamander...Do you guys remember her? That crazy woman, that barges into the local Southern Maine Writers Group meetings and screams obscenities at us and threatens to kill us because we publish books and...oh my god...this woman is so crazy...she believes, that we authors have psychic powers and are looking into her head, see all the books she's going to write in the future, and steals the ideas out of her head, and then writes HER books, decades before she thinks of the idea. I am not kidding. She is dead serious in her belief in this

We have meetings every week, all year long. Our writing group has been meeting since 1983. And every October since 2006, she shows up to one of the meetings, screaming, yelling, shaking her purple dog at us (it's a white mini poodle that she dyes purple), and she flips out at us saying: "I'm joining NaNoWriMo this year! It's my turn to shine! You can't step on my toes!" And we are just staring at her and going..."Whaaa...?"

We only ever see the Kendra woman, one day a year, every single year, as she comes running in screaming that it is her turn to shine, makes lots of wild death threats if we publish any books before she does, and then turns around and runs back out, and we don't see her again until she comes back next year to do the same thing.

In the early days these meetings were private and not announced online and none of us knew her, so we had no clue how she knew who we were, what we were doing, or where to find us. But she also did, didn't matter where we held the meetings.

And then in November she joins NaNoWriMo and starts bossed everybody around on the Maine section of the forum. She makes a bunch of threads, and tells people which members can post on which threads, on which days, and which times of the day. It's the reason why very few Maine authors use the Maine section of the NaNoWriMo forum and most of them meet in the bigger section of the forum. It's also why, the official NaNoWriMo Write-Ins at the Panera in Westbrook can't get more then 5 people to attend the meetings and why most of then just do their NaNoWriMo meetings at The Southern Maine Writers Group's meetings instead.

There was a few years (2009, 2010, 2011) where she showed 2 times instead of once. Those years she showed up in April, during the Script Frenzy contest, which I was the ML for Southern Maine for those, and she absolutly went BONKERS over that. At those three meetings she had a few extra things to say including "You aren't a NaNoWriMo ML. You have no right to be holding these meetings! I'm the ML! Stop stepping on my toes! It's my turn to shine!"

She then went to the NaNoWriMo forum, and started posting anit-EelKat protest threads, lying about me and saying that I was pretending to be a NaNoWriMo ML. I've never been a NaNoWriMo ML, I was the assistant to one of the MLs in 2006, which was the first year Kendra showed up with her threats.

I was however the Script Frenzy ML. (And ML if a forum moderator online and an offline meeting coordinator.) Script Frenzy was a writing contest created by Chris Baty, who also created NaNoWriMo. He retired, sold both companies to OLL and they shut down Script Frenzy and replaced it with CAMP NaNoWriMo instead. Which resulted in Kendra sending me 181 NaNoMails to say that "No you can't outshine me!"

Kendra's problem is she wants to be the head of a writing group, like I am, and she upset because all she has is her NaNoWriMo MLing and as everyone knows, not many writers go to the offline NaNoWriMo meetings. She said this in a NaNoWriMo thread she created in November 2013 called "What is an ML?" It was one of her many, many, many, MANY anti-EelKat threads she started on NaNoWriMo that year.

In that thread, she went on and on and on about:  

"EelKat blah, blah, blah and EelKat blah, blah, blah, and EelKat blah, blah, blah. EelKat blah, blah, blah. It's my turn to shine! EelKat won't stop stepping on my toes, blah, blah, blah and EelKat blah, blah, blah, and EelKat thinks she's an ML, she's running meetings without my permission, blah, blah, blah, EelKat blah, blah, blah. EelKat doesn't know what an ML is. blah, blah, blah. EelKat is a retard, blah, blah, blah. Why won't somebody shoot that Gypsy scumbag EelKat in the head for me? Blah, blah, blah. I know where EelKat lives, here's her home address, blah, blah, blah..."  

The OP for that thread was about as long as this page you are reading right now.

Because I wasn't on the NaNoWriMo forums (I was in college that year - full time double major doing 5 classes per semester, 3 classes in summer), so I was not aware of this thread existence, until my website, receiving 40,000 hits in the space of about an hour. 

40,000 hits in one hour. And at the time my website wasn't yet announced. I only bought the URL (this site of SpaceDock13 from 1997 till September 2013 when I changed it to EelKat instead as SpaceDock13 was no longer relevant, and do you know how hard it is to find a 6 letter .com these days? Soon as EelKat.com was available I jumped on it.) So here is my site, days old, with nothing but the "About Me" page on it, and traffic goes: 10, 300, BOOM 40,000... wait what the hell? I have 200+ websites I've been building sites since 1997. I've never seen anything like this.

So, I do "backdoor" analytic scans on my site to find out where this traffic is coming from, a everyone of them is coming from (and STILL coming from)  a single link. I click on the link to see what it is and it Kendra's "What is an ML? thread. Every time she had gone..

 "EelKat blah, blah, blah and EelKat blah, blah, blah, and EelKat blah, blah, blah. EelKat blah, blah, blah. It's my turn to shine! EelKat won't stop stepping on my toes, blah, blah, blah and EelKat blah, blah, blah, and EelKat thinks she's an ML, she's running meetings without my permission, blah, blah, blah, EelKat blah, blah, blah. EelKat doesn't know what an ML is. blah, blah, blah. EelKat is a retard, blah, blah, blah. Why won't somebody shoot that Gypsy scumbag EelKat in the head for me? Blah, blah, blah. I know where EelKat lives, here's her home address, blah, blah, blah..." 

What is looked like was this:

 "EelKat blah, blah, blah and EelKat blah, blah, blah, and EelKat blah, blah, blah.  EelKat blah, blah, blah and EelKat blah, blah, blah, and EelKat blah, blah, blah. EelKat blah, blah, blah. It's my turn to shine! EelKat won't stop stepping on my toes, blah, blah, blah and EelKat blah, blah, blah, and EelKat thinks she's an ML, she's running meetings without my permission, blah, blah, blah, EelKat blah, blah, blah. EelKat doesn't know what an ML is. blah, blah, blah. EelKat is a retard, blah, blah, blah. Why won't somebody shoot that Gypsy scumbag EelKat in the head for me? Blah, blah, blah. I know where EelKat lives, here's her home address, blah, blah, blah..." 

She linked to my site a few hundred times in that post on that thread. And my site, at only says old, got 40,000 visitors in a single hour, because of it. Behold the power of a link.

Kendra is still creating her ranting anti-EelKat threads over on NaNoWriMo. Want to know how I know? I'm an expert at website building. I know pretty much everything there is to know about SEO and Panda, Penguin, Phantom, etc and... 

I used to teach people how to build websites, you know? in fact, I was in the process of helping the owner of Kboards with the forum's "kerfuffle" with Google. Kboards is in finacial trouble, they needed help with their affilatee links, vs Google. In October 2014, Kboards got hit hard by Panda. I know what is wrong with their website. I know how to fix the problem. I was in the process of telling H.V. HOW to fix the problem when I left Kboard. I deleted those post too.

I write java. I'm better at taking to computers in DOS code and java then I am at talking to people.

I was one of the Squdoo SquidAngels. I'm the Squidoo member with all the beeping, blinking, dancing, wild colored Squidoo lenses because I know how to get into the back door of any website and change it's code.  

Kendra, I'm a freaking computer programer and website builder and designer, you idiot! How do you think I know what ISPs were hacking my account?

Of course I know every thread you start about me, because I can open my website up, inside out and follow all the traffic  breadcrumbs back to it's origins. I can tell you exact numbers of how many people visited my site from each country. Give me a few minutes and I can come up with their home addresses.

Kendra, did you know, I can see ALL your PRIVATE threads in the ML forum of NaNoWriMo...you know the one that ONLY MLs can see? Yeah. I can. Every time you start a thread about me, and send "the dragon's children" over here to my website, it leaves a trail of breadcrumbs, back to the ML forum thread you created, which I can open and read.

Yeah. Kendra, think about. Think LONG and HARD about that. Do you remember the thread you made about Saphir in 2010. Oh yeah, I saw that. Your private ML forum, it's not as private as you think.

Let me tell you something about tracking traffic to your site. EVERY time you post a link, ANYWHERE on any forum, even private access ones, Yes DD, even your forum, it's not as private as you think, every time you post a link, when someone clicks that link and visits that site, a little "tracking device" called a breadcrumb, is slapped onto that site. And the owner of that site, if they know how to do it, can look at the list of all the links EVERYWHERE on the internet that have sent traffic to their site. And they can open those links - even the "private" ones to read what was said, to drive traffic to their site. 

It's called website analysis. EVERY website on the internet does this. 

And it's why, I NEVER link to the site/thread/comment or anyone who's attacking me. Why? Because what you are doing is called link baiting. It means, you attack a website and post links to it on a forum, in hopes, that the website owner, responds, like I'm doing right now, and filled their response with links back to YOUR site.

It's a very common, underhanded, dirty pool, marketing tactic, often used by small websites, to get bigger, more popular websites, to unwittingly drive traffic to their small site.

THAT is why not only, do I NOT link, to your site, but I also,  only post the initials of your name. I'm not only not going to give you link traffic, I ain't giving your keyword search engine traffic either.

So, Kendra, while you are unwittingly driving LOTS of traffic to my site, I'm not stupid enough to send traffic, back to your site. Sorry, but I don't fall for that trick.

(People who know who I'm talking about - know that Kendra is a nickname, she only uses offline, so you can't search for her using that word and find her info online. They also know, That Silver Salamander is not the ID name - it's again, her nickname. And you want to know, the funny part of this...ONLY Kendra herself, is going to make the connection of who I'm talking about, and so, ONLY Kendra, would respond to say "She's talking about me!" NOBODY else will know who I'm talking about.)

Every time my site gets a big spike in traffic, I check the source of the traffic and 3/4s of the time my biggest traffic is coming from an anti-EelKat thread on NaNoWriMo started by The Silver Salamander aka Kendra.

Kendra spends an inordinate amount of time obsessing over me and demanding that someone kill me to make her life better, because according to Kendra everything that is going wrong in her life is my fault. And according to Kendra, it's my fault BECAUSE I, according to her, have the psychic ability to suck ideas out of her brain.

(Did you notice how I never link to the pages that are bashing me? If you want to know why, it's because I have no desire to give their site's traffic. You can read about that HERE.)

NaNoWriMo for those who don't know is The National Novel Writing Month, writing challenge, where 100s of thousands of writers gather together and attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.

I hold the State of Maine record for the most words in 30 days: 537,000

I have Autism. 

I require 24 hour adult supervision. I need help to eat my meals, brush my hair, take a bath, and use the toilet. I can not talk, thus why I am writing this to you on paper, instead of using my mouth to speak verbally. I am unable to function on a normal level, I can not do basic things you do every day without thinking about them. I can brush my hair on my own, but once I've picked up the brush it can take me as long as an hour or more to remember what the brush is and how to use it. It's what people mean when they say I am 'slow'.

I can not cross the street on my own because it takes me so long. I get half-way across and forget what I'm doing so turn and go back. The problem is I will turn again to finish crossing before getting back. I end up standing in the middle of the road walking in circles until something thinks to get out of their car and guide me out of the road.  I often go down the driveway to get the mail, and forget what I was doing by the time I reach the road, so just keep on walking until I can remember why it is I started walking.

The problem is when I start walking, my mind can't focus on multiple things at once, so I simply keep walking - I am frequently found by my caretakers as many as 13 miles away, with no idea where I am. It takes a great amount of mental effort for me to tell my feet to walk, so much so that there is no room to tell my feet they were supposed to stop at the mailbox. I frequently get lost -several times a week- because of this.

Writing is a problem. Once I start, I don't stop. The longest I have gone writing steady non-stop, without breaks, sleep or food, was 5 days. It's how I write 500,000 words in 30 days for NaNoWriMo. My typing speed starts out at 37 words a minute, but after a few hours it picks up to 91 words a minute being my top clocked speed, that's 5,000 words and hour. During NaNoWriMo I write in 3 day sessions.  72 hours on, 8 hours off. I average 30,000 words a day that way. As I have said before, I am very extremely mega good as some things. Writing is one of them. Sewing and embroidery is another. Computer code is another. I can focus on one thing and learn every aspect of it and essentially become become among the best there is at it, but that one thing, is also the ONLY thing I can do.  People look at the few things I am good at and they forget at what cost I am good at those things. I literally can not do anything else. 

In 2008, I reached 50,000 on November 3. And Kendra went ballistic. I received more then 800 long, psycho crazed "Stop stepping on my toes" emails from her. 

I don't understand. WHO CARES?

WHY does it matter how many words I wrote? 

For those that don't know, the NaNoWriMo site, tracks your word count, so you type and every time you hit save, it posts a chart to say what you word count is and everyone can watch your word count rise, live. Which is how Kendra knew what my word count was. In order to know someone's word count though, you have to log into the NaNoWriMo site, search for their name out of the 400,000+ members, open their account, and flip through the multiple pages (which flip like a book) to find the page which shows the word count. You can't just click and BOOM there is their word count. So, Kendra was making an active effort to track down my word count and keep track of it, and I don't know why.

Kendra, there are 400,000 people on NaNoWriMo. Will you find a different person to bother? I don't get it. I completly do not understand what your problem is. Why are you so hung up on me? Nine years? Kendra, you are insane. I act insane because people pay me to act insane, but you, nobody is paying you to do these things, you are just plain insane.

WHY does she care how many words I wrote? This is NOT a competition. Kendra, I am not in competition with you. I'm not in competition with ANYBODY! I am just writing because writing is what I do. Kendra, I average 30,000 words a day, EVERY DAY...ALL YEAR LONG. I don't just do that for NaNoWriMo.

I only do NaNoWriMo so I can have someone to talk to. I don't care about the numbers. Numbers mean NOTHING to me, Kendra. I have Autism. I can't even do math.

I have Autism, do you even know what that means? 

Kendra, go watch the movie Rainman. Okay. I'm JUST LIKE THAT. I act and talk EXACTLY like Rainman. I do all the same sorts of "quirks" Rainman does. 

Kendra, you stupid idiot, do you think I even have the ABILITY to compete with you? What is your problem?

I know what the problem is: she says it often enough in her endless, non-stop, emails: 

"Stop stepping on my toes!"

"It's my turn to shine!"

"I didn't give you permission to hold WriteIns!"

Ahhhh....there it is. A WriteIn is a NaNoWriMo term for a group of writers who gets together in a pod at a cafe and writes.

I'm sorry, Kendra, why do I need you permission to be a writer, sitting in a cafe with my writer friends, writing?

Kendra, NaNoWriMo has only been around since 1999. I've been holding these meetings since 1983. Were you even born yet in 1983 Kendra?

Also, I was a member of NanoWriMo since 2004, two years before you joined Kendra. 

And, here's a NEWSFLASH for you Kendra: I'm NOT holding NaNoWriMo WriteIns! I NEVER have!

We are a group of writers who gather EVERY WEEK (something EVERY DAY of the week) to WRITE.  ALL YEAR LONG! 

Kendra, I'm a professional writer. I've got 600+ chapbooks. I've published more then 2,000 non-fiction articles in magazines. I have several non-fiction books. Dozens of plays. Kendra, I even write Uncle Scrooge comic scripts for Disney.

I write every day. I get up at 5AM and I write steady non-stop til noon. From noon to 8PM I live my life, do things with family, take care of the animals, walk my dog on the beach, plant my garden, sew my costumes. From 8PM to 10PM I do this, what I am doing right now: work on my website. At 10PM I go to bed.

That is my day. Every day. I write for 7 hours a day, every single day, 7 days a week, and I average 2,000 to 3,000 words an hour. I'm writing 15,000 words a day. Every day, for 40 years.

One day a week, I write with friends in a cafe.

Kendra, that is NOT me holding NaNoWriMo WriteIns! That is me DOING MY JOB! I'm a professional writer. This is my career. Writing is what I do. I don't need YOUR permission to do my job! Who the hell died and made you god! You are sick, Kendra. Get over yourself and get out of my life!

Kendra, you keep bitching and moaning and complaining, that you can't get anything published? Maybe it's because, you spend so much time, writing emails to me, and forum posts about me, that you don't have time to actually write your books. Did you ever think of that?

And I'm self-published Kendra. I OWN the freaking publishing house that publishes my books. It's not hard to do. You can do it too, if you'd just sit your ass down and do it.

Kendra, there is NOBODY but YOU stopping YOU for writing. Stop blaming me, because you REFUSE to sit down and write.

Think about it Kendra. All those emails to me...all those forum posts about me...you COULD have spent that time writing books.

I don't waste my time writing things that don't pay me money. Yeah, Kendra, Google's paying me to write this answer to you right now. That's WHY I do not respond privately to private messages or emails. I don't get paid to reply to emails or private messages, so I don't reply.

It appears that because we had a writing group that JUST HAPPENED to be meeting the same weeks as NaNoWriMo (because we had weekly, meetings all year long, not because we were trying to outshine Kendra, as she keeps saying) Kendra falsely assumed we was trying to outdo her. But the thing was, until she showed up at our meeting screaming like a raving lunatic, we had never heard of her, so I don't know how she could 

Did she want to join our meetings? All she had to do was ask. Any author was welcomed to join. Thee's no fees, it's all free. If she wanted to be a part of our group all she needed to do was sit down with us and start typing.

sun shine true friends Comments and Graphics

I'm trying to translate her meaning here, which is difficult for me, as I have Autism and I use words literally by dictionary definition. Plus I'm not an American so I've not got a good grasp on American slang and lingo. I've got 9 years of emails, messages, forum posts, and offline in person party crashes from her, each one screaming hysterically "It's my turn to shine!" Is she suggesting that I shine?

I shine sweet Comments and Graphics

And I'm wondering how it is she comes to this conclusion. Other than the obvious fact that I coat my skin in glitter dust, wash glitter flakes into my hair, string rhinestoned beads into my dreadlocks, sew sequins and sparkle beads on my shimmering silk dresses, live in a metal flaked motor home and glued 2.5 million marbles to my car. Like I said, my first assumption was of course to think she was referencing the actual glitter that I wear every day, but my caretakers say they think she is speaking in American street slang terminology and referencing her anger towards the fact that I am running writers meetings, which she fr whatever reason thinks she should be running instead. 

I must say this does confuse me, because, it was my understanding that she did in fact run a writers group in Winthrop, Maine, which is, for those who don't know Maine, waaaaaaay up in the boonies. I was told this by the NaNoWriMo ML of Portland who holds writers meetings in Westbrook, which is a 45 minute drive for me. According to the Westbrook NaNoWriMo ML, Kendra showed up at her meetings, same as she did at our meetings, and likewise crashes the meetings with hysterical screaming fits, threats, and shouts of needing to be more shiny then every other author. 

The Westbrook NaNoWriMo ML tells me that the only way she was able to hold her meetings without Kendra's screaming fits trashing it for everyone, was to allow Kendra to physically conduct the meetings, however, she said she quickly regretted doing so as, Kendra is a very pushy, bossy person who always needs to be the center of attention and as a result of her constant belittling and bitchiness, the Westbrook NaNoWriMo write Ins went from 21 active members to only 4 members who attend sporadically.

The Westbrook NaNoWriMo ML said that Kendra became so much of a problem, that by NaNo 2012, she decided to retire from NaNoWriMo as it had become pointless to hold meetings when no one but Kendra was showing up anymore. She told me all of this in an email in November 2012, when she also asked me if I wanted to take over the ML of the Portland area, seeing how I was already the ML for the same area for Script Frenzy, and already had an established writer's group independant of the OLL meetings. 

I turned down the offer to become the new ML of the Portland area, and also retired from the Script Frenzy MLing (as Script Frenzy was shut down that same year and replaced by CAMP NaNoWriMo.) In 2012, I was in the middle of the planning stages of the Quaraun series AND I was a double major in college doing 5 classes a semester AND I was still running the local independent writing group (which I've run since 1983 and has no affiliation with NaNoWriMo at all and I'm not sure why Kendra was saying it was).   

Kendra went on a psycho-freakout nut job war path in October of 2013, when the Westbrook ML posted to the NaNoWriMo forum, to say she had retired and handed her job over to me. (This was a year after I had already declined.) I had no knowledge of her saying this, as I was not doing NaNoWriMo at all that year, due to college classes. In response to what the Westbrook ML said, Kendra, created a flurry of anti-EelKat threads all over NaNoWriMo and began NaNoMailing all the Maine members of NaNoWriMo with long hatefilled, anti-EelKat emails demanding a boycott of me and my books.

Interestingly, ALL of my pennames have NaNoWriMo accounts (not just the EelKat penname) so all 14 of my alternate pennames received these "let's teach EelKat a lesson" emails (Let's teach EelKat a Lesson" was the subject title name of a majority of said emails). - You can see why I said, it looked like Kendra was the person behind JDP/EA's account on Kboards now, right? JDP/EAs October 2014 attack on Kboards was nothing but a great big (word for word copy and paste) dejavu of Kendra's attacks on NaNoWriMo forum in October 2013.

The interesting thing of Kendra's emails is, she ASSUMED, that I had taken over as the replacement for the Westbrook ML's meetings, when in fact, I had not, and nor was I aware the Westbrook ML had told people on the forum that I was. Like I said, I had not even signed up for NaNoWriMo in 2013 and thus was not on the forum at all to see what was going on.

I was not aware Kendra was bombarding a flurry of NaNoMails to all the Maine members, until one of my relatives, forwarded an email to me, saying that the Silver salamander had sent it to her, and was sending her dozens of them a day, all saying the same basic things. The email in question was titled "What is an ML?" and ranted on for 30+ printed pages of "I am the Maine ML. That eelKat woman thinks she's the ML but she's not! That EelKat woman thinks and ML = this not that". Several rants of "I am the Maine ML. That EelKat woman won't stop stepping on my toes". Lots of "I am the Maine ML. That EelKat woman thinks she can outshine me, but it's my turn to shine!" 

Stops reading email. Checks under skirts. Yep. Okay. Goes back to reading email.

A couple of "I am the Maine ML not EelKat. We need to gather together and teach that EelKat woman a lesson." Along with "I know where that EelKat woman lives, here's her address." And "I am the Maine ML. Let's show that EelKat woman she can't step on MY toes! "

Needless to say, I am completely and utterly baffled as to what Kendra was talking about. Not only am I not a NaNoWriMo ML and have NEVER been a NaNoWriMo ML, I never claimed to be a NaNoWriMo ML. And outside of her crashing into our PRIVATE, independent, in no way affiliated with NaNoWriMo writing group that has been meeting weekly since 1983, crashing our meetings one day every October with psychotic threats and demands, than running back out as quickly as she crashed in, I've never even seen this woman before. I don't even know who she is. And I don't know what her friggin problem is, but she's been doing this for 9 years now and it's really getting damned annoying, and utterly ridiculous.  

Well, here's the thing...Kendra does have a way with getting a lot of people upset and then they show up in my yard, bitching at me, and I haven't got a fucking clue who they are or what they are talking about. And of course the worst one was when she demanded someone kill me, and someone actually was crazy enough to take her up on that and try to kill my entire family. The grease fryer bomb, left my family homeless and physically disabled. I wouldn't be on a cane, with braces now, if it wasn't for Kendra and her requesting someone kill me. So, you can see how big of a problem this woman is making herself.

I forget Kendra exists, because I have Autism, and people don't very often get in my head. Poor Kendra, I'm apparently living rent free in her head. She for whatever reason can't get me out of her head. I kind of have to feel sorry for her, because, damn, I'm a walking disco ball, you really don't want someone as glitzy as me stuck in your head. The reflected shimmers will blind your eyeballs.

I don't remember that people exist, if they are not in my life every day. If you go more then a day or two without being in the same room with me, I forgot who you are, like were never in my life at all. Just like you were erased. It is why I write down everything that happens to me when it happens. I have 368 relatives who I can name, because I wrote down their names. If I see any of them, face to face, I do not recognize them and I am unable to match the names to a face. I have no facial recognition at all, nor am I able to remember names. It's why I write them down.

I'm the type of girl who will burst out laughing over something said yesterday Graphics & Layouts from OhMySpace.com

My brain, puts things aside. I have a photographic memory and can bring up anything that has happened to me, all the way back to a fishing trip that happened when I was two. Everything in my life, my brain photographs and stores and I have no memory of any of it. I have no need to remember anything. If I want to remember something, I simply go through the images in my head until I find the one I'm looking for and I replay it and simply recite what I watch as it replays. That's how I remember things. It's how I can recite entire movie scripts and books. That's the way my brain works because of the Autism.

What that means is, that for 364 days of the year, I have absolutely no memory or even any knowledge of Kendra's existence, until the single day in each October when she shows up to yell at me, and as she yells I sit there, flipping through the file cabinets in my brain, until I find the folders containing the information matching her image, and I replay what she did last time we meet, while mentally recording her latest attack. 

Usually she is only there under 5 minutes and then gone. It takes me longer then that to sort through my brain's filing system, so often she is long gone and an hour or more has passed, before I move again. I simply sit and "star at nothing" while I watch the files replay in my head, until I ind the file containing her last attack. It can be an hour or more, before I remember her name or that she attacked me before, depending on how long it takes me to sort through my brain's filing system of memories.

You see, I forget nothing, because I don't actively remember anything, I simply "record" everything I see and put it aside and don't think about it until such a time as I need too.  And thus, for 364 days a year, I have no knowledge or memory of Kendra's existence.

She has interrupted my life enough times now, 9 years, that my brain has pushed her file to the front and I can now pull it up in a matter of seconds. I find Kendra to be deeply puzzling, because apparently she thinks about me, an awful lot, otherwise, why would she keep showing up in my life? Why would she not move on to something else? I'm apparently living rent free in Kendra's head every day, for the last nine years and I don't understand that. Why is she so obsessed with me?

Because of my Autism, I tend to live in my head. I know I do this and I know it bothers people, but I have Autism and there really isn't anything you can do about it. I think, Kendra is one of those people who doesn't know what Autism is or what it is like to be me.

Well, the problem here is, I don't see people. I physically do not see them - it's one of the reasons an Autistic person can't get a driver's lisnce - we simply do not see Humans when they are out and about. We see butterflies and rainbows and swirly starburts and unicorns and dragons and Elves and Gnomes and Faeries, but we don't see people. It is why you can walk up to me and start talking and I'll just be staring up at the clouds and not only never hear a word you said, but never saw you standing there either. It takes quite a lot to pull me out of my head and suddenly I see you there talking to me.

Kendra is one of those things. You see, I've only ever seen Kendra when she bursts into a writer's meeting. She is so loud, crashes around so much, makes such a big noisy scene, that she does what few others have ever been able to do: pulls me out of my head and takes the unicorns away, shuts off the rainbows, scares off the Elves and Faeries and I find myself suddenly, sitting in Panera, wondering who this woman is and what she is yelling about.


There IS after all a reason people call me insane - I've never said I wasn't. When I say I am insane, I'm NOT joking. I do have papers saying that. Never denied that either. I'm not joking when I tell you there are unicorns and Elves living in my head  and I prefer to talk to them, then I do Humans.

The doctors say my Autism is "more extreme then normal" because I survived a traumatic event and is unable to "live" in the "real" world anymore. I survived being kidnapped, held hostage, tortured, and watching my friends be tortured. I was 14. They died. Five of them.

I know what it is like to be kidnapped, you and your friends, to be held hostage, to watch your friends one by one be tortured - their arms and legs cut off while they were still alive. I know what it is like to be the only one left alive, and know that I'm next to die, and then the police arrive.  There were 6 of us.

John had his head turned all the way around. His face was facing back, behind him, totally the wrong direction.

Ann had her leg cut off and when it was pull out, it pulled her intestines out at the same time and she had eaten corn for breakfast and it was spilling out half digested all over the floor. L.B. ate part of Ann's leg in front of us.

I didn't die because Tajid did. When Tajid died, I was supposed to be next, he got between me and L.B. and tried to protect me, so she took him next instead of me, and snapped his spine in two. It took him 3 days to die, in absolute agony, paralyzed, he couldn't even scream, blood pouring out of his mouth.  His eyes turned black. It was horrible. He was dead for 5 days before the police got there. It was a heatwave in August, temperatures went over 100F and his skin turned a clear green and then swelled up and exploded, maggots eat his eyes in only a few hours. It was only a small room, like a big closet. The smell was horrible. You can't even begin to imagine the smell of a body dead 5 days in a summer heatwave in a room that small. 

Three of us were still alive when the police arrived. One died that night. The other  the next day. I was 14 years old when that happened. All 5 of my friends died that week. I was the only survivor.  I stopped talking during the 6 month long court trail. I didn't talk again for 15 years. 

That's why I know how to write kidnapping, hostage, torture,  cannibal, and death scenes with such vivid clarity and accuracy. I survived a murder-suicide that killed 5 of my friends.

That's why in the Quaraun series, BoomFuzzy (Unicorn) kidnaps and then murders several people in a horrible ritual and then kills himself, and Quaraun witnesses this, and he lives with this horrible sense of guilt and feeling that he could have done something to stop it, but because of his Autism he didn't and lives with that everyday. I live with that everyday. Quaraun loves BoomFuzzy so much and he tries to live remembering BoomFuzzy as he was, as Quaraun thought he was, but he has those final days of BoomFuzzy's life (the murder-suicide) stuck in his head and he can't move past it.

Quaraun is trying to deal with this, and at the same time, there all these people in his life, who don't know his past, they don't know he's the survivor of a horrible murder-suicide, they don't know that only a few years after the murder-suicide a second event occurred which killed his family and his caretakers and blew up his home and left him homeless and now living in the forest in a tent, alone, with no one. They don't know this. He doesn't tell them, and they bully him and bully him and tease him. They pick on him for the way he dresses, the way he acts, the way he talks...

Just like I survived a murder-suicide and a few years later a grease fryer bomb blew up my house and left me living under a tarp alone with no caretakers any more, and the only people who will talk to me are the people on forums who can't see me and don't know I'm what they call "retarded", and they don't know about the murder-suicide or the bomb, but eventually they find out I have Autism and they start teasing me and bullying me... I can write Quaraun's pain and frustration because it is my VERY REAL pain and frustration that I feel every day.

I survived, and 4 months into the 6 month long murder trail, my mind turned itself off. That's when I started writing books. I wouldn't be an author today if that hadn't happened.   

Doctors believe that had I grown up in a normal American family, and gotten proper treatment at the time, that I wouldn't be the glittering, sequined wearing, rhinestoned art-car building transvestite that I am today. Thing was, my Gypsy family, didn't believe in doctors and, didn't care about anyone dying, because they were members of Heaven's Gate and were too busy getting ready to kill themselves.

Doctors call me a "special case" because suicide death cults are so rare and survivor of them are even rarer. My family was involved in 5 murder-suicides. And then Kendra comes along and boo-hoos all her shininess and says online that she wants me dead and some guy was crazy enough to build a bomb and blow up my house in October 2006 and that spun my PTSD out of control. The doctors say that my Autism is "Unique" because  it's compounded by "severely crippling PTSD" that was triggered by my having Autism and my mind not being able to fully process properly the murder-suicide events I had witnessed followed by the bomb that took out my house.

They say they worry, because I started building art cars after the bomb, and I spend 40 or more hours a week doing nothing but gluing marbles to my car (and now my motor home as well)

I am not insane as in "oh, let's have some fun, insanity it cute" sort of thing. I'm not being cute. I have Autism and I witnessed horrible things that a normal person couldn't cope with, and I have PTSD on top of the Autism. I am diagnosed as clinically and medically insane in the truest sense of the word.

My caretakers, actually want to talk to Kendra, she never stays long enough for them to confront her. They worry that her violent nature could trigger a "bad response" from me. They say that I am harmless but that they fear under the right conditions, I could snap. They wish to prevent that and that is why, they are quick to guard me from having any physical contact with violent people. They say my "fight or flight mechanism" is "off" and I don't respond naturally or normally in high stress situations, and because of my Autism, I lack any outward emotion, so you can't tell if I'm happy or sad or about to pull my machete out. They say I am "harmless until threatened".

There was a bomb threat at college in 2013. My doctors didn't realize how much I change and am no longer harmless under actual threat of attack. My very public meltdown on campus, pretty much scared everyone shitless and they no longer list me as "harmless", they now list me as "harmless until threatened, well respond violently".

It's why my caretakers, find Kendra so concerning. You see, she's the one who put out the request for someone to kill me in 2006, resulting in the bomb, that triggered me both to start building art cars and to start talking after, not having said a word, since the murder trail when I was 14. 

They asked me, how I feel about Kendra. I find her annoying. She interrupts my life. I don't like interruptions. I have Autism, my life is routine. Everything in it's place. Everything at it's proper time. Kendra's interruptions are unscheduled.  She is like a mosquito. She keeps jumping into my life unannounced and is in the way. 

That's the thing, Kendra doesn't understand: I don't care. I don't care about her at all. She means nothing to me. Her life means nothing to me. She's no different to me, then an ant. Annoying. Interrupting your meal. So you squash it and go back to eating. 

My caretakers say that Kendra apparently thinks I want her position and that's why she keeps annoying me. Kendra fails to realize that all I want is for her annoyance to go away. 

I don't understand how or why she thinks I am competing with her. This confuses me greatly. I don't compete with people, because I lack emotion. I feel no need to compete with people, because I feel nothing at all. I live in a world that she can not see and I don't like her interrupting that and forcing me back into this horrid world that she lives in.

my mind is in the clouds Cute Free Graphics & Codes at Ohmyspace.com!

I am fully aware of the fact that I rarely see or hear the "real" world around me and I really don't care. I don't like the real world. My 5 best friends were murdered, and I watched it happened. I've been witness to murders and suicide and horrendous abuse and violence and when I was 14 years old, I shut down. I turned my brain off. Switch channels so to speak. I haven't lived in the "real" world ever since.

Doctors say they've never seen anything like this, they've never seen anyone do something like this. When they ask me to describe it too them, I tell them, I have an on and off switch in my brain and I shut the world off and turn the world in my head on instead. It is why I can sit on the floor for hours to a time a stare at the wall, like I'm staring at a TV. I sort of am staring at a TV, it's just I'm the only one who can see what's playing.

It took several caretakers, quite a bit of explaining, before they were able to make me understand, Kendra wasn't talking about my glittering clothes or rhinestoned car, but rather her job at NaNoWriMo. They say, they believe that she believes I am trying to take her MLing job away from her. Well, that's just weird and I can't figure out why Kendra would think that. 

I have Autism. I have no interest in competting with anyone for anything. I don't even fully understand things like that. I find the whole idea of competting to be very puzzling. It's one of the primary reasons I can not understand non-Autistic folks. They all seem to have this desire to push everyone else out of the way, while they race to some self-important goal that makes no sense to me at all.

That's the thing Kendra doesn't realize. It's the part she misses. She thinks I care about her and her puny little kingdom of being the ML of NaNoWriMo and fact is, I don't. I don't live in the same "world" as Kendra or anyone else for that matter. I have Autism, I live in a world, that only exists in my head and that world is a much nicer, happier place, then the world Humans live in. Kendra thinks I want her position of ML, but I don't and when I was offered the job in 2012, I TURNED IT DOWN.

call me a bitch again and I'll pee on your leg Get your own Glitter Graphics AvatarMagic.com

My caretakers have explained to me that Kendra, apparently has a very low self-esteem and is using MLing for NaNoWriMo as a way to push her weight around and make herself feel big. They say that they think she feels extremely intimidated by me and that they feel she is very jealous of my success as a writer.  They tell me that people like her have a deep self-need to try to compete with others even when no one is actually competing with them. 

They say that she is the type of person who is motivated by trophies and awards and prizes and material possessions. 

Trophies and awards and prizes and material possessions? Yes. Those are like money to me. They are pointless things that have no meaning and no value, thus no purpose. I don't understand them, nor do I understand why people strive to get them.

My caretakers pointed out that NaNoWriMo is seen by most people as a competition and they point out that NaNoWriMo does hand out award certificates when you win. Interesting. I actually wasn't aware of that. They said that when you win, NaNoWriMo sends you an email with a link to download the certificate to print up. I checked my email, and, yes, I seem to have 10 years worth of awards, that I was unaware NaNowWriMo had sent me. That's rather fascinating. Yeah, I have no interest in those things. Trophies and awards and prizes...they mean nothing to me at all. 

I am having great difficulty understanding why someone would do something, just to get an award. An award is pointless. It never occurred to me that anyone would do NaNoWriMo to get an award. I thought the goal was to write a novel? I am now very confused. Why would anyone write a novel to get an award? That's about as idiotic as writing a novel for money.

Yeah, I don't do that either. My caretakers tell me that most people write books because they are trying to make money. I don't understand money, either. It's just paper. You can't do anything with it. I don't understand why people want it so badly, but it does seem to motivate an awful lot of people.

Non-Autistic people confuse me. Their priorities are so warped. They value paper in the form of money and trophies, and they go out of their way to hurt people to get those things. 

My caretakers say that based on the things she says in her emails, Kendra apparently is highly motivated by what they call "power positions" and money. They think she writes for money and that she does NaNoWriMo to have a power position. They say that she seems to be intimidated by the fact that I just do my own thing, and thus appear to her, to have a higher position of power, because I have enough self-confidence to write for the fun of writing, rather then to write for either power or money. I don't really understand what any of that even means, unfortunately, so I'm still clueless as to why Kendra keeps contacting me.

I can only be left to ask, how is it anyone could possibly be intimidated by me? Intimidation means fear. Kendra is scared of me? Why? I spend the majority of my life sewing beads to my cloths and gluing marbles to my car and writing about sparkling transvestites, while cats sit on my lap and purr to me. I don't do anything else. At all. Ever. For more then 40 years.

I can't tell you the day, the time, the year, the current president, the past presidents, the times tables, or any of those other standard questions that are always the first questions doctors ask to see if you are okay. I have Autism, I can't even count money or dial a phone. It absolutely baffles me how Kendra could possibly see me as a threat to her career as a NaNoWriMo ML.

But 9 years. God, Kendra has invested an awful lot of time in her obsessing over something that is so insignificant.

So, I'm reading this person in the review comments, who claims to be an author, and is just going total complete meltdown, and shrieking hysterically in all caps: "I KNOW HOW TO WRITE EROTICA AND YOU DON'T!" (In the review of a book that is NOT Erotica. Which is the same thing JDP was saying on Kboards.)

And: "IT'S MY TURN TO SHINE! STOP STEPPING ON MY TOES!"

Really?

Kendra is that you?

Hi! Kendra!

*waves hello*

So, uhm, what are you doing with 52 Amazon accounts and posting psycho crazy 300+ comment conversations with all 52 versions of yourself on one of my books for?

Four books attacked were these:

With most of the attack targeted at the 2 Quaraun books.

A side note. Amazon did not tell me, who these authors were, so I have no idea who did it. I only know that Amazon has informed me, that ALL of their accounts have been deleted, including their authors account, and all of their books have been unpublished and removed from the Amazon site. HOWEVER - I do know that most of the comments which I had read before Amazon deleted them, were direct copy and paste from comments also posted on the KBoards forum and, I do know the name of the authors who posted those same comments on KBoards, and I did look that person up and their books have been removed from Amazon.

But when Amazon deleted the accounts, all their posts were removed off the books at the same time, and I still had 2 more pages of comments to read, and had not yet started to read the ones on the 2 non-Quaraun books. I have no idea what was said on the Willowhurst and Ceiling. Not sure why Amazon deleted the reviews and comments. (I asked and they said the accounts of the posters were deleted, but didn't say why.) 

I suppose if you wanted to find out who did it, it wouldn't to difficult to search Amazon to see which authors had all of their books banned/unpublished/deleted off Amazon in the past 3 or 4 weeks.

I know it was an author, because they said in the comments that they were an author. I would assume you'd want to look in the Erotica section, seeing how, they did boldly brag in their comments saying they were what they referred to as "EAF Erotica author" (a term I had to Google because I'd never heard of it before this happened. Near as I can tell EAF stands for "Erotica Author Forum", a forum which was shut down in September/October 2014 for selling photos of minors engaging in sexual activity.)

These likewise appear to be the same 52 accounts which attacked several dozen members on the KBoards forum, between February 2014 and October 2014  (where they also boldly bragged in their comments saying they were what they referred to as "EAF Erotica author" .  I left KB November 11, 2014, so I don't know if the forum is still a war zone or if the fighting has stopped or what.  I just don't want any part of a forum war. Forum wars are nothing but petty people, stooping to petty measures, to try to hurt people and I do not like that sort of thing.

What these people don't realize, is I lived through 458. Every morning, I got up to the sound of shotguns. I was 8 years old. Every day I had to go to the barn and feed the animals and DODGE BULLETS to get across the yard. I grew up in a REAL war. I learned at a very young age that I do not like fighting. Every day I had to risk my life to feed my horse and chickens. Do you have any idea what it's like to live at ground zero of a battlefront? DO YOU?

THAT is why I HATE forum wars. That's why I won't join in and post on one. I don't comment on them. I don't reply to them. Once I realize that's what is happening, I won't even read the posts of any member who is engaging in the fight.

I grew up in a REAL offline war zone, with bullets zipping past my head. All I want is peace and quiet and someone to talk to. The last thing I want is fighting and arguing and people being mean and hurtful to one another.

That's why when these "EAF Erotica Authors" invaded Kboards and started posting all those mean things about first one author and then another, I avoided every area of the forum that these mean spirited, hate mongering bullies frequented.

I stayed away from them, because I didn't want to be a part of their silly, stupid, senseless fighting.

I'm not even entirely sure what the term "EAF Erotica author" actually means, but the way they were throwing it around, I got the impression, they felt it made them special or elitist, like it was some sort of badge of honour which made them somehow  more important then everybody else because of it.  Which was weird, you know, considering who I am and the way I collect books. Two world records remember? Fast closing in on three more. Hey, I read a lot of Erotica. I have 8,000 Erotica books, and Honey, if I haven't  heard the term before,  they can't be too important or elitist. But whatever. To each his own.

I'm somewhat disappointed that Amazon chose to delete the comments. It was rather hilarious, considering how EXTREMELY off-topic the comments were to the books in question.

I mean...these books are not Erotica and the comments they were leaving, and arguing with thenselves in a very Sergeant Teddybear fashion...good god...do you people remember the teddy bears? I've gotta see if I can find that...hold on. I think I've got it bookmarked...

Yes...I found it: Teddy bears...one author, many accounts, lots of comments...here it is.

It was like ^THAT^...it was...WOW! Good god!

That's why I wish Amazon had left it, because it was hilarious, watching this single so called self-proclaimed "EAF Erotica author" having a 52 account meltdown in the comments of a review they left on my book.

I mean total freaking loony tune here, and I'm not even sure they were commenting on the right book. I mean, that book is NOT Erotica. The Quaraun series is ONLY rated M-18 for crying out loud. It ain't even rated for Erotica (which is MA-21).

(I know Americans and Europeans get confused about book ratings because America and Europe don't have them, but I sell the majority of my books in Japan, where books ARE rated and that's why tere are ratings on my books, so that I can list them for sale on Amazon.jp where I sell most of my books.)

The Adventures of Quaraun The Insane series was rated using the FanFiction . Net rating system, as it was originally published there in hundreds of 5,000 word chapters between 1997 and 2011 – this is the non-fan fiction rewrite of the older fan fiction series. 

For those who don't know the book rating system (because it's not used in the USA or the UK)

The Rating Chart is as follows:

  • E-Rated: Suitable for everyone, but usually geared for ages under 8
  • PG-Rated: May contain topics (such as death, divorce, or mild swearing) disturbing to sensitive children. Parents may wish to read before letting children read it.
  • T-Rated: Contains topics not advised for readers under the age of 12, which may include mild language, tobacco use, alcohol use, LGBT characters in non-sexual situations, and mild fantasy violence
  • T-16 Rated: Contains topics not advised for readers under the age of 16, which may include mild references to sex, drugs, suicide, LGBT themes, and violence
  • M-18 Rated: Contains topics not advised for readers under the age of 18, which may include strong references to sex, drugs, suicide, LGBT themes, and violence.
  • MA-21 Rated: Explicit Erotica, for mature adults only.

The Adventures of Quaraun The Insane Bizarro serial is overall Rated M-18 for strong language, explicit yaoi sex, BDSM, knotting, barbs, tentacles,  drug use, cutting, suicide, thoughts of suicide, attempted suicide, norms bullying autistic characters, victims of bullying and abuse taking revenge on/torturing and murdering their attackers, and transsexual, inter-racial, December/May, male/male relationships. Not all of these things appear in all stories in the series. Not all stories in the series contain M-18 rated material, many stories are only T-16. 

This series is NOT rated MA-21 because it is NOT Erotica. There seems to be some confusion here, because of the M-18 Rating, some readers are falsely assuming that this is Erotica. Readers have asked if this was an Erotica series. No, this series is not Erotica. It is Literary Bizarro Fantasy. It is ONLY rated the much lower rating of M-18 it is NOT rated at the much higher rating of MA-21.

I am guessing, that based on the comments, this so called "EAF Erotica author" (as they kept calling all 52 of themselves) was of the opinion that because the Quaraun series is rated M18 that it must have been Erotica? And so they read it expecting Erotica and then flipped out, basically accusing me of false advertising, by listing it as M-18 rated. But all that proves is he'she had no clue what M-18 even means! Anyone who knows anything about the book rating system KNOWS that an M-18 book IS NOT Erotica!

The ONLY rating ever used for Erotica is MA-21, NEVER M-18! That's just silly.

The comments, were "Erotica" this and "Erotica" that and "FAKE Erotica" and "this is not REAL Erotica" (their use of all caps, not mine - and of course it's not real Erotica! It's not Erotica at all! GEESH! Can't you see the freaking M-18 rating a CLEAR indication that it is NOT Erotica?) and "I know Erotica because I've been writing Erotica since 2006"...well...a great big whoop-dee-doo, for you! I've been writing it since 1978 if you want to start comparing whos been writing what the longest. Good god!  (I got 15 pennames you know!)

What is your point, exactly? 

What does it matter when you started writing Erotica and why should I care? Because I don't care and I'm confused as to why you thought I would.

And why are you telling me in the comments of a book, that is NOT Erotica? Yeah...I mean...I wrote it, so, yeah, I KNOW it's not Erotica. Why do you think it was ONLY rated at M-18? Did you download it, thinking it WAS Erotica and then got mad when you found out it wasn't? I don't understand...WHY did you feel the need to leave 300+ comments all saying this book was not Erotica? And why did you feel the need to do that with 52 accounts to pretend that you were 52 people all agreeing with each other?

It would have been one thing if it was just comments like this but, this person, created 52 fake Amazon accounts to fight with themself and, turned it into first an attack on the book, then an attack on the author, then an attack on the author's race and culture, then attack on the authors religion...and there was nobody their but themselves, arguing with their other selves on their multiple fake accounts.

They just work themselves up into an increasing psychotic frenzy and I don't know why.

And probably the biggest question I have to ask here is...WHY did you create 52 fake Amazon accounts, and pretend to be 52 people, having this conversation over the course of 300+ comments? You do know that only a crazy person would create multiple accounts so they could have lengthy conversations with themselves, right?

I'm just sitting here, wondering...52 accounts? That means you have 52 email addresses as well. That's like...I don't know what it's like. Do you send yourself emails everyday too?

I don't get it. Why did you do this?

I'm finding this so incredibly fascinating. It's mind boggling and you know what...if you was doing this, to try to get mentioned in one of my books...it worked...oh Sugar Pie, it worked soooo well. You did it, you so did it. You are going to get to be the Jiggler when next he appears. The Jiggler is so perfect for playing the role of you, because he's an author who ALWAYS over reacts and flips out.

You remember how the psycho author of the Teddy Bear comments, I linked to above, inspired me to write this:


27,706 / 50,000 words.
85/ 160 pages.
Draft @ 55.41%

Yeah... The Jiggler... he's gonna make a comeback... 52 times... oh boy ... you remember how last time, I had him sending serial killing teddy bears out to slaughter literary critics? I'm gonna have him clone himself 52 times, so he can talk to himself....

That's why I'm disappointed that Amazon deleted your psycho billy comments to yourself, because I hadn't finished making copies of them before they went POOF! They were so inspiring! I mean the Jiggler is just the craziest character of the entire Quaraun series and he's an author, so I LOVE it when an author goes crazy in the comments and book reviews they leave on my books, because I take those comments and I use them as writing prompts to come up with ideas for more crazy things for the Jiggler to do.

I do not know who reported this incident to Amazon, because as you know, I've never reported anyone, anywhere, on any site, because I am of the belief that one should allow their hate comments to remain public, that the world may know what they are.

Haters are gonna hate. No reason to delete it. If they want to make a fool of themselves by telling everyone how much they hate me or you or whoever, why hide it? They're only hurting themselves after all.

I mean, the people who actually WANT to buy my books are going to buy them, not matter what the hatters say in the reviews.

But yes...if you are reading this...next time somebody goes psycho crazy flip out in the reviews on my books, don't report it. Let them flip out. Let the world watch them go crazy, because I just find that so inspiring. (And utterly hilarious.) I love it. I absolutely love it when people go nutty like this, because that's EXACTLY the type of thing that I use as writing prompts. I just get the best, greatest, wildest, insanest ideas for stories from events like this. And, besides, it's fun to watch an author have a meltdown in the comments on another authors books.

That's why you see so many characters in my books, especially the Quaraun series, having meltdown and going loopy, because, EVERYTHING in the Quaraun series is based on actual events. 

Yeah. 

EVERYTHING. 

If somebody is flipping out and having a major meltdown in the Quaraun series, you can guarantee, that meltdown actually happened somewhere on the internet and inspired me to write about it.

I kind of think it's funny that it happened to me of all people, because you know how I am, how these sorts of things inspire me to write stories based off of them and rather ironic that it happened on a Quaraun book in particular - you know, the series that I'm known for publishing these stories in.

For those of you not familiar with the Quaraun series - it was originally published on FanFiction . net in a series of hundreds of little 5,000 word chapter/episode "mini-stories" published kind of semi-weekly between 1997 and 2011 – this version that I'm currently republishing on Amazon Kindle is the non-fan fiction rewrite of the older fan fiction series, with all copyrighted characters/places/etc removed and replaced with original characters/places/etc. That's why the series is really bizarre and wonky, and has weird random sex scenes thrown in at weird random places for no reason at all... because it started out as a mish-mash of a fan-fiction of EVERYTHING I was a fan of - every book, movie, TV show, comic, cartoon, manga, news report, local event, and of course online meltdown events - makes it into this series.

Yes, this IS my "Lord Sesshomaru/Drizzt/Star Trek/Bat Man/Care Bears/DarkWing Duck/Uncle Scrooge/Rainbow Brite/Smurfs/She-Ra" cross-over knotting & tentacle fetish yaoi fan-fic series - turned non-fan-fic; Quaraun was Lord Sesshomaru in the original fanfic version.

I mean...what exactly were they expecting from something that rose up out of the toxic green slime pits of fanfic.net? I mean, it's the rewrite of something I originally wrote for fanfic.net, it's freaking insanity vomited onto the page with no rhyme nor reason behind any of it other then to toss characters into weird situations and see how long it takes for them to end up in bed together.

Fanfic.net people...have you ever been to that site and read the stuff that get gurjitated onto it's pages?  Oh...believe me, Quaraun is TAME...oh so TAME...if Quaraun offends you, then you don't want to go NEAR fanfic.net without many gallon of eye bleach and brain cell erasers. Oh yeah. Quaraun, is nothing...NOTHING...compared to some of the stuff found on that site.

Well, it takes about 6 months for a Quaraun story to go from idea, to publication so you won't see the Jiggler cloning himself 52 times until about August 2015 or so, but when you do, you'll know what inspired it to be written. LOL! 

But somebody report them, because Amazon removed them. 

Wait...what? Why? I was having so much fun thinking of fan fiction I could write about them and I wasn't done reading them yet. I didn't get to the end to see how their multi-account conversation with themselves about how much they hated me, Gypsies, retards, Mormons, fake Erotica, Faeries, Leprechauns, 

Oh well. So, the books went from having 50+ 1 star rates and 300+ comments per book to no star rates and no comments at all.

I guess Amazon thinks they were being helpful by removing them?

*Sigh*

Well now what am I gonna read? 

It's like FireFly. Do you remember FireFly? A really amazing TV show, that lasted for 1 season and 3 episodes before POOF it went off the air. 

FireFly started out dry, irritating, and annoying, but you just had to keep watching it. It was so damned addictive, and the more you watched it, the more it irritated you, but the more addicting it became and the more you couldn't stop watching it, and no matter how much you said you hated the show, every week you turned the TV on and had to know what happened next, even though the plot was bad, the acting was bad, and .... there was just something about it that sucked you in and then one day you turn on the TV and HELLO, what's this? Something else was on. Wait? Where's FireFly? Gah! It's gone? NOOOOO! I wanted to know what happened next!

It was like that. I'm reading the comments and going what? How did they come to that conclusion. Huh? They think I meant this when I was writing that? Wha....? Why? Oh look, now they are logged in on this other account and are patting themself on the back and agreeing with themself. Oh wait...look at that...they created a third account and are patting both their other accounts on the back for saying that...oh my god! This is too funny! Look, now they've created a 4th account to play devil's advocate so the other three can have a reason to expound the first comment even farther. Notice how none of them ever posts over the other. How each one sits and politely waits their turn to speak in turn (because all of them are being typed out by only one person who is acting out all of them.) POOF...gone...wait...what...where is it? NOOO! I was reading that! I wanted to know what they were gonna say next!

Well, obviously somebody reported it, otherwise Amazon wouldn't have known about it to delete it...I don't think. I don't know. Does amazon have some sort of automated system that picks up on certain types/styles of comments? I've never heard of such a thing, but they have delivery drones now, so who knows what else they got.

There was some pretty nasty stuff being said:

One of the comments said: “Don’t buy books from EelKat, she’s nothing but a low life Gypsy scum”

Others said “Gypsies steal babies to sell for child porn and sex slaves, buying books written by Gypsies helps fund child porn”

And others said “I lived in Romania, I know for a fact that the only good Gypsy is a dead Gypsy”

Another posted my home address and said “Here’s where the Gypsy scumbag lives, go shoot her in the head, she deserves it, she’s a Gypsy, shoot them all, make the world a better place”.

And there were more then 300 of them. The problem was heightened by the fact that someone did show up at our farm and threaten my family in person.

There were other things mentioned in the comments including the use of Leprechauns, the heavy theme of suicide, and several dozen comments that railed on the “evils” of Mormons (I am LDS) and Gypsy Faerie Faith (a pagan religion practiced by Scottish Gypsies; I am my clan’s High Priestess and HoodooRootworker [yes, a wizard of sorts - for white Americans who can't seem to understand what Hoodoo is any other way]).

The thing which probably upset me the most about this, were the comments which came right out and said: “Retarded books featuring retarded characters written by a retard.”

There were more then 70 comments which used the word “retard” and calling me “retarded”. Maybe more. Like I said, it disappeared before I got a chance to read through to the end of it. I have Autism. I am diagnosed as “severely autistic”, I require 24 hour adult supervision, I am not able to do most things which “norms” are able to do. I have no ability to do numbers and maths and that sort of thing. I can not cross the street on my own. I have to have a caretaker to help me brush my hair, eat my meals, use the toilet, take a bath. I can't function on my own that's why I have to have 24 "adult supervision" even though I'm in my 40s. I can't even speak verbally with my mouth and make it come out as something you could understand, which is why I write/type. It's the only way I am able to communicate with you and it's why I write books, because I'm not physically able to do anything else. My brain doesn't send the proper signals to my body for me to be able to do normal "everyday things" like normal non-autistic people can do. It's really frustrating sometimes because there are so many things I'd like to be able to do and, I just can't do them.

I don't have normal reflexes or reaction times either. If you hit me, I probably won't start crying or screaming in pain for at least an hour. That's why you don't see immediate response from me online. I have to print out your forum posts and comments an reviews and emails and read them several times over a period of several days in order to be able to fully process and understand what it is, you are saying to me. I usually have to have my caretaker read your words to me, multiple times, and often he has to then get a dictionary and read the definitions of the words you use and then explain them to me. After which I will them Google the stuff you say and try to see if I can figure out what it is you might have meant and which emotion it is, you were trying to trigger in me.

I think that is the thing a lot of people don't understand about Autism. 

If you tell a joke - I don't laugh, because I don't know why it was supposed to be funny, because I don't understand what you said until I've had time to research it.

If you bully me with the intent of hurting my feelings - I don't cry or get upset or angry, because I don't know why it was supposed to be hurt by what you said, because I don't understand what you said until I've had time to research it.

That is why I'm somewhat dismayed by Amazon's having removed the reviews and comments in question, because I had not yet finished researching the words used in them, so I'm still uncertain, what it is, the attacker was intending as their reason for attacking. Now that the comments are gone, I will probably never know what it is, their intent or goal or motive actual was or what emotion it was, that they wanted me to feel as a result of their attack.

Oh well.

But that is why, my books will no longer be available for free and why the cover prices have increased.

My caretakers have pointed out to me, that I made it too easy for this attacker to attack me by giving my books away for free. While the Quaraun series gets downloaded for free more then any other titles I have. Tens of thousands of the first 2 volumes (Screaming Unicorn and Vampire Leprechaun) were given away free, but they only bring in a profit of $35 a month via sales.

My caretakers have brought it to my attention that, it was easy for haters to download the book for free, allowing them to post attacks via "verified reviews". And that also because the series is very small niche and doesn't appeal to the larger mainstream market, there really is no reason to have free days for it, because a majority of the people downloading it will not be people who are actually interested in this particular tiny niches genre.

They also point out to me, that the people who are buying it, because they ENJOY it and WANT to read it, are going to buy it anyways, regardless of any free days, sale days, or promotions and so, there really is not advantage to any sort of marketing, sales, freebies, or promotions at all anyways.

My caretakers say that, while removing the free days does not remove trolls and haters entirely, it will repel the majority of them, seeing as, if they really do hate the series, the author, etc, as much as they say they do, then they are not going to be willing to pay money to buy the book and without having bought or downloaded for free a copy of the book, they therefor are unable to write a "verified review" to tear it or me apart with.

But again, this situation WAS NOT A READER reviewings books with 1 stars, IT WAS AN AUTHOR, who gathered up a team of family and friends to launch an all out attack on another author, via the means of the author and his/her friends each creating multiple (often 20 or more per person) Amazon accounts and then leaving blank (textless) fake 1 star reviews, with a goal of hitting a single book with 100 or more 1 stars in the space of an hour or two after the book's release. These are what are known as “fake reviews” because they are not left by readers or reviewers.

Likewise there are authors who gather up “street teams” of friends and family to bombard their own books with 5 star reviews. These are also called “fake reviews” because again, they are not left by readers or reviewers and the authors who do this, likewise have their accounts deleted and books unpublished.

Amazon tracks the ISPS of reviewers and when this is discovered to be happening, they delete the account (and unpublish all their books) of the troll author. This is why every once in a while you’ll see an author have their entire collection of books deleted off Amazon.

Amazon has a strict no-tolerance policy against ALL authors leaving ANY book reviews - good or bad.

When we sign up to publish our books on Kindle, Amazon makes us authors sign a contract stating that we will REMOVE all book reviews we wrote prior to becoming Kindle authors and agree to NEVER AGAIN write a single book review - EVER.

An author is NEVER allowed to leave a book review or a star rating on ANY book on the Amazon website. Amazon takes this offense very seriously. Amazon gives the offenders no warning, their accounts are simply locked down and books deleted off the site. When their accounts disappear, so too do all the reviews they left, good or bad.

That is why the reviews and comments vanished. Because the authors who left those things, had their accounts deleted for the ToS violation of reviewing books, AT ALL. Authors are NOT allowed to write book reviews AT ALL. It's a HUGE no-no on Amazon.

Unfortunately, there is a recent trend in self-published authors, stooping to these sort of unprofessional bullying tactics and it has been growing far worse since mid-2014. It’s very sad to see so many new authors these days launch these baseless and unwarranted attacks on other authors.

How do these offending authors pick which authors to launch an attack against? Sadly, every author who has ever been attacked by one of these assaults, had one thing in common. The KBoards Forum. Every author who has ever had this happen, has ONLY ever had it happen to books they had listed for "pre-release" on their KBoards profile. It is for this reason between August 2014 and October 2014 thousands of authors (myself included) disabled the book links on their KBoards profile and changed the id name of their KBoard account, to something not connected to their Amazon account.

These attacks started in 2012, got worse in 2013, and in August 2014 went out of control, resulting nearly 700 authors leaving the KBoards forum, between February 2013 and October 2014. I don’t know how these offending authors plan to run a business if they spend their time attacking other authors. I find this whole method of self-5-starring while 1-star-dinging other authors to be underhanded, petty, childish, and highly unprofessional. It baffles me as to why they do it or what they think they will gain by it.

Another method used by these offending authors, is to find something they don’t like about an author’s personal life, and then create dozens of fake Amazon accounts, to leave dozens of fake 1 star reviews, and then in the comments feature, launch propaganda hate attacks in a lame attempt to destroy the author’s reputation.

But there you go. That is why Into the Swamp of Death has not see any free days, as you would have normally expected to have happened during it's first week of release and why all of my titles saw a dramatic increase in cover price.

So, yeah, there won't be ANY free book available in the near future. And now you know why. How long will the lack of free days las? I don't know. At least until May. If it goes past May, the next renewal period is not until August, so could be into next winter before free days start back up, IF they ever come back at all, which is a possibility at this point.

I know A LOT of you stalked my Amazon account watching for the free days because I usually had a free book every day, all year long. Sorry. But thanks to trolls and hackers, those days of free books from EelKat are over.

For now, I'll leave them in Kindle Unlimited and will have .99c days instead of free days, but, if the attacks continue, those will go away in May and so will the lower introductory prices, with all books starting out at their cover prices right from day one.

I know, it seems unfair to you, that a few bad apples, have spoiled the entire barrel for everyone, but the fact remains, they DID make an active attempt to tarnish my name, damage my reputation, destroy my career, and shut down my writing income and they very proudly admitted those things in their comments. They came right out and used the phrase "we will stop at nothing to dry up your sales and kill your career".

At this point, I still don't know what exactly triggered them to do this, or WHO it is, who is doing it. I know some of the authors, whom this person riled up, via the things they said and did, but the actual identity of the instigator who is getting others upset, is still unknown at this point, they still hiding behind a multitude of anony-mouse aliases.

I can tell you that two separate ISPs have been identified - one is overseas in the UK and one, is a public access computer at the library, in Biddeford, Maine less then 5 miles from my home and that is very disturbing news.

But there you have it. Why I've discontinued giving away my books for free.

No idea where the Jiggler story will go to from all of this. I have to come up with a reason WHY the Jiggler clones himself 52 times and as I'm not sure why this psycho author created 52 Amazon accounts, I'm not sure why to have the Jiggler clone himself. However...she/he did do an awful lot of bitching about how much they hated Gypsies and the Jiggler is one of the few non-Gypsy characters in the series, so maybe I could use that as inspiration for why he clones himself? Don't know yet. Well, I'm off to go write about the Jiggler cloning himself 52 times and see what I come up with.

And, as I'm reading this...that one line stands out, you know: "It's my turn to shine."

"It's my turn to shine."

That sounds familiar. I wonder where I could have that before?

I can't help but ask myself, this isn't the Silver Salamander and the Purple Dragon (the Westbrook Panera incident of October 2009) duo from Northern Maine again is it? Good god, it certainly is starting to look like she's back. Do you guys remember her? LOL! OMG!

She hasn't contacted me since October/November 2013...wait...

Before than she did this in October/November 2012 as well.

Hhmmm. And the last time she contacted me before that was, oh look: October/November 2011

My god! Kendra...is that you! Are you the creepazoid who hacked my KBoards account? It did happen in October didn't it and you have stated a pretty nasty often violent cyber and offline attack on me (and my car) EVERY October since 2006.

Good god. Kendra, I forgot about you're annual October attacks every year. I don't know why it never occurred to me that the Kboards incident happened in October. Or at least, the attack on me, happened in October. The bigger attack on the other authors started in February 2014, it took them, 8 months to get around to attacking me. God, and here JDP was screaming it was her "turn to shine" too and never even paid attention to it. Kendra - your buddy J.B. and J.T.  already went to prison. Do you really want to join them?

For those who don't know Kendra/Silver Salamander works for NaNoWriMo. She lives here in Maine about 75 miles from me. She was friends with J.B. who built the bomb that blew up my house, and she (falsely) claims her father owns FunTown (the family that owns FunTown lives down the street from me, that's why I know she's lying about that because I know the people who ACTUALLY do own FunTown SplashTown USA We are the Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach, we know all the carnival people in the area)  ..... but wow look at that date: October 2014.

A psych-nut author having an "I hate you" fit on a public forum in October 2014?

hhhmmmm

Kind of reminds me of the psych-nut author having an "I hate you! It's my turn to shine!" fit on a public forum in October 2013. How can I forget that one. She was accusing me of sucking ideas out of her head that year, remember?

Oh, what about the  psych-nut author having an "I hate you! It's my turn to shine!" fit on a public forum in October 2012? 

And then there was the  psych-nut author having an "I hate you! It's my turn to shine!" fit on a public forum in October 2011.

And the  psych-nut author having an "I hate you! It's my turn to shine!" fit on a public forum in October 2010.

 Let's not forget the psych-nut author having an "I hate you" fit on a public forum in October 2009, followed by the offline  in person "I hate you! It's my turn to shine!" fit at Panera.

And then there was the  psych-nut author having an "I hate you! It's my turn to shine!" fit on a public forum in October 2008, which included 181 emails in a single day.

And of course there was the  psych-nut author having an "I hate you! It's my turn to shine!" fit on a public forum in October 2007.

Well, let's see. Who remembers October 2006. And the   psych-nut author having an "I hate you! It's my turn to shine! I WISH SOMEONE WOULD KILL HER FOR ME" fit on a public forum in October 2006 followed by the offline, somebody blew up my house with a grease fryer bomb the following week.

October

AGAIN

Yeah. She's been stalking, harassing, and bullying me for a looooooong time.

Kendra/Silver Salamander has staged one of these cyber AND OFFLINE attacks EVERY October since she started working for NaNoWriMo in 2005. I don't know why it took me so long to make the connection between Kendra/Silver Salamander and KBoards incident.

But yeah, hacking into my KBoards account, that is so Kendra. Creating 52 fake accounts on Amazon? Oh yeah. That so Kendra.

Kendra is a problem. A pretty big one. She has a long history of finding local (Maine) authors and lashing out at them in person at their homes in wild crazy fury. There are at least 7 other local authors (that I know of) that she has attacked, bullied, and harassed OFFLINE.  She frequently shows up at libraries and cafes (most local authors don't dare to meet at the local Paneras anymore as a result of her frequent psychotic meltdowns in the cafe) and just lunges at anyone using a computer, because she suspects them of being writers and she has this weird little conspiracy that every author is out to get her.

READER QUESTION: So what's the deal with this Kendra person anyways? Who is she? why does she keep contacting you?

ANSWER: I don't know. I wish I did. It really would be so much easier if I knew who she was or what her motivation for doing all this is. It baffles me on so many levels, the amount of effort and energy this woman has putting into harassing me over the years. It's just mind boggling.

I mean, RMA, I understand. He was my incestuos, pedophile uncle and he was pissed off because at 12 years old I refused to get in bed with him, so he went on a freaking vendeta all over the place. He did the same thing to nearly a dozen other nieces of his and went after his own daughter as well. He thought he was God's girt to little girls and he had multiple lawsuits against him from parents of Young Women and Primary children in several LDS Wards in Florida, Maryland, and Illinois. And every time an underaged preteen girl refused to have sex with him, he flipped out and went psycho-nut0-ob on her and her family.

He was a violent 6'4" giant of a man who thought nothing of beating woman and children to a pulp. He once got mad at my mom grabbed a table and bashed her in the head over and over again. He threw another sister out into the road in front of a car, she's lucky to be alive. He had a temper and a fury and was alway punching woman and children in the face, grabbing them by the hair and slamming their face into the floor while kicking them in the stomach and back. That's the type of bully he was, and his reason for beating woman and children was always the same: he simply could not believe that there exists anyone on the planet who was not willing to have sex with him and the more you tried to get away the more he beat you, and heaven help you if you tried to tell anyone what he did to you.

The man had a serious problem and is why I grew up to have such a vehement hatred for incest, child molesters and pedophiles. None of us was surprised when he died from a ruptured brain tumor. His having a brain tumor explained a lot.

Most of the people you see on my blacklist, are people who RMA stirred up into a frenzy with his lies. He was very high ranked in the LDS Church and pulled a lot of weight with other men in the church and he spread a lot of lies about a lot of preteen girls in his overreaching attempts to make them look bad so that no one would believe them when they pointed the finger of rape at him. 

See, I can understand why RMA and those who believed his lies, said and did the things they said and did, but Kendra? No, I just can't figure out what it is that set a fire under her ass to get started in this little mini vendetta she's got going here. It makes no sense  to me at all. I simply can not make heads or tails of it. 

I never even heard of her before until the day she just randomly showed up at one of The Southern Maine Writers Group meetings, stormed in screaming and yelling wild obscenities and threats then turned around and screamed her way back out. At that point we didn't know her name and just assumed she was some drunk who rolled in off the street. It wasn't until she repeated the same event at another meeting, and then another, and then another, that we started to realize this woman was specifically targeting us, but to this day, 9 years later, I still have no clue why she picked us to harass, or why of all the writers in the group she latched on to me and ran wild with it. And we don't even know what her real name is, Kendra is just the nickname that another writer who had been harassed by her a few years before she started  harassing us, had called her, so we started calling her by that same nickname as well. To this day I have no idea what Kendra's real name even is.

I know she lives here in Maine about 75 miles from me. She claims her father owns FunTown (the family that owns FunTown lives down the street from me, they are on my Christmas card list, that's why I know she's lying about that because I know the people who ACTUALLY do own FunTown SplashTown USA We are the Scottish Gypsies of Old Orchard Beach, we know all the carnival people in the area)

jealous? little red wagon thought so heart

She has what she claims is a service dog, a white poodle that she dyes purple and the dog is, in theory, supposed to pull her out of crowds to prevent her from violently attacking people. 

Most of the year no one hears from her, but every October, she goes off her meds as a way to "prepare" for NaNoWriMo. She claims she is unable to write when she's taking her psychiatric medications, so every October she stops taken them to prepare for NaNoWriMo in November and every October, she randomly shows up at the homes of various local authors to scream obscenities and threaten to kill them, if they dare write a book and publish it, before she does.

Most authors in the area try to ignore her psychotic meltdowns, but each year she seems to be getting more violent, and well, we do know that whoever hacked my KBoards account, did so from a public computer less then 5 miles from my home... which well...if the shoe fits...she is becoming increasingly more threatening and increasingly more violent and she did dramatically increase her cyber attacks in 2013, and oddly, I didn't hear from her October 2014, but then again, I did leave NaNoWriMo in 2013 because I'd just had it with her well...let me tell you what she did on the NaNoWriMo Forum in October  2013...she started a series of "Anti-EelKat" & "anti-Gypsy" threads and then, created a whole bunch of fake accounts to post on them in, and then, hacked my NaNoWriMo account and rewrote my posts....yeah...like I said, the KBoards incident was not the first time one of my forum accounts fell under heavy fire with with Gypsy hate and then was hacked. 

Kendra is a fairly large problem every October/November. This woman has serious mental health issues, and good god, she incredibly violent in person. When she's on her meds, she fine. Acts normal and everything, but take her off her meds and god you better keep a gun away from her.

So, I'm reading this person in the review comments, who claims to be an author, and is just going total complete meltdown, and shrieking hysterically in all caps: "I KNOW HOW TO WRITE EROTICA AND YOU DON'T!" (In the review of a book that is NOT Erotica. Which is the same thing JDP was saying on Kboards.)

And: "IT'S MY TURN TO SHINE! STOP STEPPING ON MY TOES!"

Really?

Kendra is that you?

Hi! Kendra!

*waves hello*

So, uhm, what are you doing with 52 Amazon accounts and posting psycho crazy 300+ comment conversations with all 52 versions of yourself on one of my books for?

A side note. Amazon did not tell me, who these authors were, so I have no idea who did it. I only know that Amazon has informed me, that ALL of their accounts involved have been deleted, including their authors account, and all of their books have been unpublished and removed from the Amazon site, every account for the single ISP that had created all of the fake accounts was deleted, thus why the reviews suddenly vanished. HOWEVER - I do know that most of the comments which I had read before Amazon deleted them, were direct copy and paste from comments also posted on the KBoards forum and, I do know the name of the authors who posted those same comments on KBoards, and I did look that person up and their books have been removed from Amazon, so in trying to hurt me, they only hurt themselves. That's the power of karma. What goes around comes around. That's why I never do anything to hurt anyone. I'm not gonna play around with bad karma.

Amazon is a professional business, and they expect us authors to behave professionally. We are not children and Amazon doesn't like it when grown up, adult authors act like children. If you can't behave like a rational adult and present yourself on Amazon like a professional business person, then Amazon just isn't gonna put up with you. They are running a business, they are not playing games.

I think that is why I find this event so baffling, because I simply can not understand how anyone could behave so unprofessionally as this person was doing. 52 accounts? That is so petty, vindictive, childish, immature, and unprofessional. A well respected business person simply doesn't do something like that. You'll never get any where in life if you stoop to such low brow tactics. 

But when Amazon deleted the accounts, all their posts were removed off the books at the same time, and I still had 2 more pages of comments to read. Not sure why Amazon deleted the reviews and comments. 

I know it was an author, because they said in the comments that they were an author. I would assume you'd want to look in the Erotica section, seeing how, they did boldly brag in their comments saying they were what they referred to as "EAF Erotica author" (a term I had to Google because I'd never heard of it before this happened. Near as I can tell EAF stands for "Erotica Author Forum", a forum which was shut down in September/October 2014 for selling photos of minors engaging in sexual activity.)

These likewise appear to be the same 52 accounts which attacked several dozen members on the KBoards forum, between February 2014 and October 2014  (where they also boldly bragged in their comments saying they were what they referred to as "EAF Erotica author" .  I left KB November 11, 2014, so I don't know if the forum is still a war zone or if the fighting has stopped or what.  I just don't want any part of a forum war. Forum wars are nothing but petty people, stooping to petty measures, to try to hurt people and I do not like that sort of thing.

What these people don't realize, is I lived through 458. Every morning, I got up to the sound of shotguns. I was 8 years old. Every day I had to go to the barn and feed the animals and DODGE BULLETS to get across the yard. I grew up in a REAL war. I learned at a very young age that I do not like fighting. Every day I had to risk my life to feed my horse and chickens. Do you have any idea what it's like to live at ground zero of a battlefront? DO YOU?

THAT is why I HATE forum wars. That's why I won't join in and post on one. I don't comment on them. I don't reply to them. Once I realize that's what is happening, I won't even read the posts of any member who is engaging in the fight.

I grew up in a REAL offline war zone, with bullets zipping past my head. All I want is peace and quiet and someone to talk to. The last thing I want is fighting and arguing and people being mean and hurtful to one another.

That's why when these "EAF Erotica Authors" invaded Kboards and started posting all those mean things about first one author and then another, I avoided every area of the forum that these mean spirited, hate mongering bullies frequented.

I stayed away from them, because I didn't want to be a part of their silly, stupid, senseless fighting.

I'm not even entirely sure what the term "EAF Erotica author" actually means, but the way they were throwing it around, I got the impression, they felt it made them special or elitist, like it was some sort of badge of honour which made them somehow  more important then everybody else because of it.  Which was weird, you know, considering who I am and the way I collect books. Two world records remember? Fast closing in on three more. Hey, I read a lot of Erotica. I have 8,000 Erotica books, and Honey, if I haven't  heard the term before,  they can't be too important or elitist. But whatever. To each his own.

I'm somewhat disappointed that Amazon chose to delete the comments. It was rather hilarious, considering how EXTREMELY off-topic the comments were to the books in question.

I mean...these books are not Erotica and the comments they were leaving, and arguing with thenselves in a very Sergeant Teddybear fashion...good god...do you people remember the teddy bears? I've gotta see if I can find that...hold on. I think I've got it bookmarked...

Yes...I found it: Teddy bears...one author, many accounts, lots of comments...here it is.

It was like ^THAT^...it was...WOW! Good god!

That's why I wish Amazon had left it, because it was hilarious, watching this single so called self-proclaimed "EAF Erotica author" having a 52 account meltdown in the comments of a review they left on my book.

I mean total freaking loony tune here, and I'm not even sure they were commenting on the right book. I mean, that book is NOT Erotica. The Adventures of Quaraun The Insane Bizarro serial has strong language, explicit yaoi sex, BDSM, knotting, barbs, tentacles,  drug use, cutting, suicide, thoughts of suicide, attempted suicide, norms bullying autistic characters, victims of bullying and abuse taking revenge on/torturing and murdering their attackers, and transsexual, interracial, December/May, male/male relationships. Not all of these things appear in all stories in the series. Not all stories in the series contain M-18 rated material, many stories are only T-16. 

This series is NOT Erotica.  It is Literary Bizarro Fantasy. 

I am guessing, that based on the comments, this so called "EAF Erotica author" (as they kept calling all 52 of themselves) was of the opinion that because the Quaraun series is rated M18 that it must have been Erotica? And so they read it expecting Erotica and then flipped out, basically accusing me of false advertising, but I've never advertised it as Erotica.  Yes, there are sex scenes, but Game of Thrones has more sex scenes then Quaraun does and you don't see that being called Erotica do you? That's just silly.

The comments, were "Erotica" this and "Erotica" that and "FAKE Erotica" and "this is not REAL Erotica" (their use of all caps, not mine - and of course it's not real Erotica! It's not Erotica at all! GEESH!) and "I know Erotica because I've been writing Erotica since 2006"...well...a great big whoop-dee-doo, for you! I've been writing it since 1978 if you want to start comparing whos been writing what the longest. Good god!

What is your point, exactly? 

What does it matter when you started writing Erotica and why should I care? Because I don't care and I'm confused as to why you thought I would.

Reviews are normally written by readers and addressed to other readers. These weren't. These particular reviews were specifically calling me out by name, and using the pronoun "You" not "She". And the reviewer admitted in each and every one of their 52 accounts, to being an author. This was not a review, this was one author taking a conversation off a forum (Kboards) and continuing it in the review section on Amazon.

And why are you telling me in the comments of a book, that is NOT Erotica? Yeah...I mean...I wrote it, so, yeah, I KNOW it's not Erotica.  Did you download it, thinking it WAS Erotica and then got mad when you found out it wasn't? I don't understand...WHY did you feel the need to leave 300+ comments all saying this book was not Erotica? And why did you feel the need to do that with 52 accounts to pretend that you were 52 people all agreeing with each other?

It would have been one thing if it was just comments like this but, this person, created 52 fake Amazon accounts to fight with themself and, turned it into first an attack on the book, then an attack on the author, then an attack on the author's race and culture, then attack on the authors religion...and there was nobody their but themselves, arguing with their other selves on their multiple fake accounts.

They just work themselves up into an increasing psychotic frenzy, screaming and yelling in lots of capital letters at me, not about me, but addressed directly at me, and I don't know why.

And probably the biggest question I have to ask here is...WHY did you create 52 fake Amazon accounts, and pretend to be 52 people, having this conversation over the course of 300+ comments? You do know that only a crazy person would create multiple accounts so they could have lengthy conversations with themselves, right?

I'm just sitting here, wondering...52 accounts? That means you have 52 email addresses as well. That's like...I don't know what it's like. Do you send yourself emails everyday too?

I don't get it. Why did you do this?

I'm finding this so incredibly fascinating. It's mind boggling and you know what...if you was doing this, to try to get mentioned in one of my books...it worked...oh Sugar Pie, it worked soooo well. You did it, you so did it. You are going to get to be the Jiggler when next he appears. The Jiggler is so perfect for playing the role of you, because he's an author who ALWAYS over reacts and flips out.

You remember how the psycho author of the Teddy Bear comments, I linked to above, inspired me to write this:

Yeah... The Jiggler... he's gonna make a comeback... 52 times... oh boy ... you remember how last time, I had him sending serial killing teddy bears out to slaughter literary critics? I'm gonna have him clone himself 52 times, so he can talk to himself....

That's why I'm disappointed that Amazon deleted your psycho billy comments to yourself, because I hadn't finished making copies of them before they went POOF! They were so inspiring! I mean the Jiggler is just the craziest character of the entire Quaraun series and he's an author, so I LOVE it when an author goes crazy in the comments and book reviews they leave on my books, because I take those comments and I use them as writing prompts to come up with ideas for more crazy things for the Jiggler to do.

I do not know who reported this incident to Amazon, because as you know, I've never reported anyone, anywhere, on any site, because I am of the belief that one should allow their hate comments to remain public, that the world may know what they are.

Haters are gonna hate. No reason to delete it. If they want to make a fool of themselves by telling everyone how much they hate me or you or whoever, why hide it? They're only hurting themselves after all.

I mean, the people who actually WANT to buy my books are going to buy them, not matter what the hatters say in the reviews.

But yes...if you are reading this...next time somebody goes psycho crazy flip out in the reviews on my books, don't report it. Let them flip out. Let the world watch them go crazy, because I just find that so inspiring. (And utterly hilarious.) I love it. I absolutely love it when people go nutty like this, because that's EXACTLY the type of thing that I use as writing prompts. I just get the best, greatest, wildest, insanest ideas for stories from events like this. And, besides, it's fun to watch an author have a meltdown in the comments on another authors books.

That's why you see so many characters in my books, especially the Quaraun series, having meltdown and going loopy, because, EVERYTHING in the Quaraun series is based on actual events. 

Yeah. 

EVERYTHING. 

If somebody is flipping out and having a major meltdown in the Quaraun series, you can guarantee, that meltdown actually happened somewhere on the internet and inspired me to write about it.

I kind of think it's funny that it happened to me of all people, because you know how I am, how these sorts of things inspire me to write stories based off of them and rather ironic that it happened on a Quaraun book in particular - you know, the series that I'm known for publishing these stories in.

For those of you not familiar with the Quaraun series - it was originally published on FanFiction . net in a series of hundreds of little 5,000 word chapter/episode "mini-stories" published kind of semi-weekly between 1997 and 2011 – this version that I'm currently republishing on Amazon Kindle is the non-fan fiction rewrite of the older fan fiction series, with all copyrighted characters/places/etc removed and replaced with original characters/places/etc. That's why the series is really bizarre and wonky, and has weird random sex scenes thrown in at weird random places for no reason at all... because it started out as a mish-mash of a fan-fiction of E
