She's back. And this time, Kendra Silvermander aka Tom Addams is on Reddit, using the id name: mike_m_ekim .
Here, have a read ...
What is Kendra talking about this time?
She's referencing this:
I would recommend you go to Amazon and look for self-published books on the art of Hoodoo, Rootwork, Creole Voodoo, and New Orleans Voodoo. Books written by two-headed conjuremen, rootdoctors, mambos, borkars, and houngans. Buy and read as many as possible.
Most of these are written in the Creole dialect; many are written by "mountain folk" authors who have little to no schooling and wrote the books phonetically. I know this because I am a Voodoo Priestess rank of Medsen Fey Marija Loa to Damballah Weddo. I make a habit of supporting my fellow hoodooers in their work by buying their books, thus I have read several dozen books that are written in the actual Creole language.
Reading how your language is written, when written by people for whom it is their native tongue, perhaps would help you to compare the differences in how it is written, with how American English is written.
I am Scottish and write my books in the native tongue of my people. Scotts English is very similar to Creole, because it was French Canadian Scotsmen who were teaching many of the slave to speak English. I have no trouble reading the Creole dialect because it is so similar to Scots English that there is very little difference at all.
As to if you should dumb down your native dialect to make the book more readable to the masses, it depends on where you market your book. I do not try to dumb it down for the America readers, if they can not understand it, well, that's their problem, not mine. Most of the world speaks 3 languages minimum and has no trouble with bi-lingual dialects. It's only Americans who speak 1 language and are baffled at how to read multi-lingual dialects. And Scottish English is a TYPE of English. It's not THAT different from American English. Imagine the trouble Americans would have with French or Latin - standard languages MOST of Europe knows.
American got high horse chips on their houlders - big ones. They hate everything and every one that is not them and they are not afraid to pull out their guns and brutally, violently, and bloodily attack you for something as petty as spelling colour with a "u" instead of color without a "u" they way they do. They are vicious, brutal, blood thirsty hate mongers, the Americans, just look at the posts you see written on Reddit. You can always tell an American from a non=American, by their levels of bitter troll fest snark filled hate. Americans can't even be friendly of act civilized on a forum. A complete lack of dignity or manners. They are rude, crude, and and very, very violent.
For decade my books have sold in Europe and Asia with no problem. No bitterness. No hate. No violence. My books went to the American mass market in September 2014. October 2014 I had 7 dump trucks arrive in my yard and dump mountains of garbage on my crops. A pile of garbage 175 feet long, 30 feet wide and 12 feet tall. THAT is what Americans do to authors who do not write in American English.
I've never had an Asian or European reader complain they had trouble reading my books. 80% of my sales are to Japan and Germany and France. On the other hand, 97% of all books sold to Americans, has been returned and I've gotten several hundred hate emails from American readers who do complain about the dialect of the Scottish Gypsy characters in my books....
You can see one here on Reddit for yourself if you want to see the kind of hate emails I recieve on a daily basis: https://www.reddit.com/r/writing/comments/84p9fr/with_writing_advice_mention_whether_you_simply/
(Yes, to the people who have commented and asked what the OP was talking about, s/he was referencing one of my replies on Reddit last week, which mentioned using Scots English to write my books instead of translating my books to American; they are "spoofing" rewriting into gibberish, a post I wrote last week.) Waves to may stalker, glad to see your gibberish hasn't changed and you now have a Reddit account to harass me with.
- note -
I'm not surprised to see her posting her usually raving mockery madness, making fun of my language and my people here on Reddit, she's already done it everywhere else. One might call her obsessed with me, though I'm not sure why.
If you know who this OP is, please call the FBI agent in charge of the attempted murder investigation:
Agent Andy Drewer @ 207-774-9322,
she's wanted for:
She's wanted by the FBI if you know who she is please turn her over because I have no idea who this woman is or why she is doing this.
Book publishing hiatus: November 14, 2013 I was beaten up by a woman who claimed to be a unpublished author. I was paralyzed for 5 months and am still 4 years later relearning to use my legs & arms. While I was cripple, offline, and recovering these past 4 years, she next proceeded to hack my website and most all of my forum and social network accounts.
April 2015 she returned, filled my motorhome with 1,000s of gallons of feces/raw sewage and cut my cats heads off nailing them to my door. 10 cats are currently still missing.
October 2006 she blew up my house with a bomb, in May 2013 put a bomb in my classroom at college, November 2015 put a bomb in my department where I work at Walmart, and June 2016 put yet another bomb in WalMart. The FBI is trying to identity of this woman. More info about these terrorist attacks on my family can be found here: https://www.eelkat.com/1667Words.html
If you have any information about this woman, please contact the FBI agent in charge of the case, his contact info is on that page.

So, if you want to write your native dialect, just know ahead of time that what is written in that Reddit post is the type of email you'll get from American readers. I get on average, 2,000 such emails EVERY DAY.
Just like THIS:
A year ago, you saw me make a vlog on this same subject, after she sent me an email titled: "Jesus Christ is Lord and Voodoo is Satanic". Here, go watch it for yourself...
THAT, is the type of email she sends me EVERY DAMNED DAY.
She's a raving lunatic, and now you've seen her madness for yourself.
