We’d like to thank a site visitor who gave us a tip on something that happened to author, Eve Thomas. Apparently, Eve was trying to raise money and awareness for a couple charities but ended up going the wrong way about it which violated GR TOS. Then the bullies jumped in and labeled her a BBA and a spammer. So what did Eve do? She did what she thought was right and issued an apology, explaining her position:
And did they forgive her? Gee, can you guess?
Here’s what they left on her book (you will recognize some names here):
This author did what she thought was right and apologized for making a mistake. Now, when someone apologizes and is sincere about it, you’d think that would be enough for the bullies, but no, it never is. This is why we call them bullies. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this either. What happened to this author is exactly the same thing that happened to Kiera Cass last year in the whole kerfuffle with Wendy Darling. Except in Kiera’s case, the bully attack was much worse and Kiera wasn’t the one at fault. It was her agent (post on this to come soon.) For this reason, there are a lot of authors out there who would rather eat horse manure than apologize to these people. And we completely understand that sentiment. So, if you’re an author who thinks they may have made a mistake and want to apologize, we say that’s entirely up to you to decide. Just keep in mind that it’s more than likely your apology will not be accepted.
