Darwin8u Don't vote for Roy Stolworthy's book 'Coming Home'.

If you notice, this self-published novel is ranked #10. However, upon deeper inspection you will also notice that he is doing quid pro quo reviews and rankings with other self-published authors. For example EVERY single vote he received was a #1 vote (really, not War and Peace?). Also, many of those who voted for his book ONLY voted for his book. Also many who voted for his book ALSO have books they are pimping. So, anyway, take it for what it is.

Here is the list of Roy's "Bad Behaving Author Friends":

1. John Hanley - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
2. Paul Cude - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
3. Dab10 - ranked Comign Home 1 of 1 - author of Karmic Krackers
4. Leonardo Ramirez - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
5. Danielle DeVor - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
6. Dianne Harman - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
7. Melodie Ramone - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
8. Elizabeth Marx - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
9. Karen Prince - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
10. Murielle Cyr - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
11. Janna Yeshanova - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
12. Jams N. Roses - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
13. Shane K.P. O'Neill - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
14. Rhonda Patton/Chester McDaniel - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.

So, 14/16 votes are authors. Either Roy is a writer's writer, or this is obviously a way for these self=published authors to try and push up their books. Ugh.

But to be fair to Roy. There were two rating that didn't come from other Goodreads/Self-Published authors. One come from Emma Morris, who has apparently ONLY rated Roy's books (all 5 stars) and has no friends. The other rating comes from a 17 yo Norwegian kid who likes Dan Brown A LOT.

James Just think...in the old days, it was as easy as your mother handing it to Walker Percy.

Well, back then you first needed to actually WRITE well and follow that up with killing yourself. You had me at Walker Percy, BTW.
