Apologies for the hiatus- but lots of stuff going on. So, for those of you who’ve read Bree’s most recent newsletter with her new release- we have a new addition to the family. Well, we HAD a new addition…I need to preface this post with the truth that I’m angry and hurt by what I’ve seen in the author community that she had loved so much. Bullies have been allowed to flourish because wanna-be authors falsely believed these horrible individuals were powerful enough to make them famous (rather than learn how to write)- several of these wanna-be’s had even spent time in our home, lied to their spouses and families, and used me as a Dom.
Contrary to what some idiots online think (the cowards know exactly who they are and have actively bullied Bree-even to the point of sending a letter demanding that she commit suicide), she’s had severe kidney problems for three solid years. It’s been nonstop ongoing stones, chronic infections, unbelievable pain, even MRSA with sepsis.When the kidney function finally stopped, the docs made the tough decision to take it out.
On November 2nd- Bree delivered a new (although temporary) family member. It was kind of the Benjamin Buttons of kidneys- born fully grown (and the size of a soccer ball) via Da Vinci Robot and a ten inch incision. Now the beast has gone to kidney hell and good riddance!We’re so glad it’s over and Bree is doing well (taking advantage of the down time and writing like a machine).
What saddens and angers me most is that all this time, the bullies (many who claimed to be friends and used her for self-gain) rejoiced in her pain and suffering. They also did all they could to sabotage her career- and spread lies that made Tokyo Rose’s propaganda look like a kindergartener’s.
I’m grateful that my kick-ass wife stood against them and none of the fools had the power to harm her. I’m also grateful that a reader saw the ugliness and investigated- and had the guts to publish the truth despite the publisher’s repeated threats to sue her! All the horrendous comments, the death wish by ‘Author Amy,’ and lies are there for public viewing on Literary Bully and Troll Busters. There’s so much more- and is going to be part of a new book that Bree’s agent is pitching to a hug publisher.
Silver linings, right?
I sincerely pray that anyone who’s supported these people never undergoes the pain they’ve put our family through. I also pray that those who do presently support these people be prepared for when karma returns to haunt them. Some have approached Bree and apologized- Bree’s capacity for forgiveness shocked me, but then- that’s who she is.
So, yeah, I’m angry that women like these are allowed to continue- and that publishers/publicists/authors who know what they’ve done have chosen money over humanity. They, too, will be facing karma.
One more thing- I wanted to make a list of all these people and the companies who supported and encourage their lies. Bree said no- why? Because she wanted to give them the chance to make things right and undo the damage they’ve caused to so many before they destroy themselves. I don’t know how she does it, but she provides an example of love that I could only dream of.
Be good or else,
