I'm trying to decide whether to put it up for sale on retail sites or to put it up as a free read on Wattpad like I did with Home. Jillian's story doesn't have an HEA, so it's not romance, but there's lots of sex. That's my dilemma. I think readers expect erotic romance, and this one isn't. I don't want to let anyone down, but this is her story as it came to me.

I'll keep thinking on it. :-) Either way, BANG should be out in 2017.(less)

I've heard that people have been getting flagged for their comments against the author, so in light of this, I have decided to pull all my prior negative comments about her off my review. I still stand by my comments I made, but have had verbal attacks from people and don't need my review getting flagged in the future.

1)what is going on
2)why did you pay the ticket
3)why are you not leaving.

That is pretty much what I'm feeling right now.

I thought she sounded whiny, ignorant and possibly stupid, but there are always people who don't have the capacity form logical opinions. So whatever, I didn't pay much attention.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to. It's not that I haven't read other rockstar books or that I dislike dirty mouthed people. Nah, I love dirty talking people.

The author made a mistake. She denigrated the very people who spent their money and bought her book. Why? Because they liked it and haven't thought much of her other books which she feels are better.

She's attracted something of a back-lash against her, and I think she brought it on herself. I imagine if she knew the furore her comments would cause she wouldn't have made them.

I've occasionally said things that I regret in hindsight, I'm pretty sure we all have, and I think it's probably time to

I’m not going to lie, the only reason I bought this book is because of the warning the author wrote in the description. I couldn’t resist it. I am glad I did.

STRINGS is not for everyone. It is raunchy, nasty, crass, vulgar, yet manages to have a sweet romance in it. I ‘EFFIN LOVED EVERY WORD!!!

Yes, I know the author made some comments that were out of line, but we all get a case of the stupids once in a while, so in my book she's forgiven. We've forgiven people for much worse than a few insulting comments. I'm over it.

When an author trashes her readers or genre because she feels she's selling out - it is not one I want to support. I especially feel that trashing one genre for another is dumb because while she feels her Urban Fantasy is art there are others who would view this genre being a sell out or poor. And the fact she also considers Goodreads reviewers as 'motherfuckers who can't read' is the icing on the cake.

Congratulations Ms. Grey. You have earned your very own shelf on GR.

Because of the recent comments by the author, I have decided that this book is not worth reading. And have since created not one, but 2 new shelves.

I'm pretty open about what books I read. I don't care if it's a clean book or a naughty (ie. hot) erotic book. As long as there's a story there, one I want to read, then I'll read it.

But there are some things I can't stand. The actions by this author is one of those things. Lately, w
