Do you have a favorite author? Have you ever wondered what it might be like to work for him or her? You'd imagine it was a dream come true, right? Well, Melody is one personal assistant that might argue that point.

Melody's known UF author Miriam ever since Melody's boyfriend took a slumbering nosedive into Miriam's cleavage. When a few years later she's asked to become Miriam's personal assistant, Melody jumps at the chance to become part of the team. What Melody doesn't plan on is the ego of a...more

After bumping into each other at some conventions over the years, Melody goes to work for author Miriam Daniels as an assistant; someone to get her name out there and organize her business life. At the very beginning the two are close friends and Miriam asks Melody to point it out if she ever acts like a diva. The pointing out never happens and we’re given an easy to read story of Melody’s experiences working for someone who goes from eccentric to someone who should have had a swift kick in the...more

Well, I am not really sure how to rate this. The formatting is totally batshit, the writing passable at best, and the book itself is some horrific CreateSpace binding travesty, but come on....I didn't buy this thing because I thought it would be the pinnacle of literature.

I bought it for the shit talking.

That shit talking confirms exactly what I've always suspected about the person/auuthor portrayed herein (named Miriam in the book), that she is a vile emotional vampire who basically exists to...more

What can I say? This could have possibly been the best piece of gossip to come down the pike in a long time...or it could just be one huge piece of fictitious dreck. We'll never know for sure, but I have a feeling that it is exactly what it is. It seems to be a catharsis for the poor Melody. I would have to have been smoking the worlds best plant product to have kept working for this witch. I probably would have been popping a lot of downers as well! After reading the first ten chapters or so, I...more

The Diva Ate Her is bad from the awkward opening to the triple-epilogues. The writing is bad, the plot is scattered, and the characters are unsympathetic. But despite all that, it manages to be a blast to read.

If you believe rumors, the book is slightly less fiction than it presents, which is pretty much the only reason to read it -- if has all the delightful crunch of a terrible gossip rag.

The dialog (and prose) is painfully stilted -- the lack of the contractions is particularly noticeable,...more

I actually thought this flowed very well and was more than a "tell all". I really felt like I was there witnessing the crumble of a friendship and the metamorphosis from a butterfly to a zombified bat of an author I once enjoyed. The story surprisingly felt unbiased and without hostility, just a very detailed recollection of an event, making the author's story/claims even more believable. I enjoyed it from beginning to end.

I kinda liked this book and the inside of working with a writer who turns into a diva but somehow I don't get why Melody would still work for Miriam?

Also this book has way too many typos!
