    wanna take bets on who it is and how long it takes for them to be 'outted'
    Or for them to out themselves if they get too much attention they can't own.

    hiding in the light, so to speak

    bbbbbbwwwwwaaaaaahhhhhhhh, we are so gonna need more fucking popcorn...

    1. Sybil loves drama. :)

      By Blogger Bam, at 6/22/2006 12:28:00 PM  

    2. Hmm, I don't think it would end by her/him/them being outed (it looks like it'll be fascinating just in that it's an anonymous free-for-all) but by how long can one keep it up:

      Week One: Karen Scott and Bam
      Week Two: SBTB
      Week Three: Mrs. Giggles (btw, I'm so thrilled to see that she's reviewing again!)
      Week Four: Snarkling Clean/Dear Author

      There are far more bad covers out there to support a blog than there are reviewers.

    3. I find it amusing.

      And once more than one person knows who it is - it is just a matter of time before the cookie crumbles.

      And really we are talking book covers right? The thing that finally pushed someone over the edge of common sense was bookcovers?

      The thing the author really didn't have ownership of anyway?

      Hell if anything CP is prolly making money off the whole stupid thing. So that could be the point as well. When was the last time that publisher got this much attention?

    4. I wouldn't even link to it Sybil. Your giving them free traffic to foster more of this bullsh*t. Which author is it? Can you email me or should I know this one already?

      By Blogger Avid Reader, at 6/22/2006 01:14:00 PM  

    5. I saw the blog, and the comments. Aint Multiple Personality Disorder a bitch?

      By Blogger Karen Scott, at 6/22/2006 01:21:00 PM  

    6. it inspired me to buy the movie "Sybil" which is not about you, Sybil. Huh. That's so weird.

      By Blogger Bam, at 6/22/2006 01:32:00 PM  

    7. Oh why not link? Someone went to all the work of creating a free blogger blog to snark at the snarky.

      To put the bloggers in there place... to call out bad grammar to all of us too stupid to care to look it up... to right the wrongs of the internet... to make us all take our toys and go home and stop being big ol meanies to the hard working authors and cover 'art' people in the world

      woe be the bad ol blogger now

      run bloggers run... hide! You are being - what? Called to take account to someone so brave as to be a mouse on the internet?

      Really, whatever.

      Writers put out their work to be sold and published. Anyone that posts in any public forum (anyone) runs the chance of being agreed with or not.

      So I can't get worked up over Anon McSnark's blog. If a person wants to only be agreed with, they can't ever go outside of their comfort zone.

      so snark on...

      By Blogger sybil, at 6/22/2006 01:42:00 PM  

    8. It is funny, I get more hit from people looking up Sybil. Who knew so many people cared about MPD or whatever they are calling it these days.

      funny how that is oddly on topic eh?

      By Blogger sybil, at 6/22/2006 01:45:00 PM  

    9. >>Aint Multiple Personality Disorder a bitch?

      Sure as hell looks that way.

      By Blogger Amie Stuart, at 6/22/2006 02:14:00 PM  

    10. Yep, whatever.

      A blog by an anon author who snarks back to readers, anonymously. They need to get a life.

      I didn't use spell check either.

      My guess is that it is...

      By Blogger Avid Reader, at 6/22/2006 02:58:00 PM  

    11. I clicked on the link. Now I need a shower. Or nice, long, hot bath. Or a drink. Unfortunately The New Job doesn't require me to keep a bottle of Jack Daniels in my desk drawer.

      Way too much drama. I mean, hello?! It's fiction. It's not foreign policy! And when did it become "not OK" to snark on cover art. For cripes sake, that stuff is BEGGING to be snarked about. Although for me, snarking on CGI covers is like shooting fish in a barrel. It's just too easy. Which is why I stick to The Big NY Houses. Frankly, they have better things to do than worry about some displaced Midwestern librarian who is tired of looking at man-titty on western romances.

      And the last time I publicly decried a romance cover - the author AGREED WITH ME! Told me she "cried for two days" after she saw the cover art although her editor kept reassuring her it was a "really strong cover."

    12. Childish, childish, childish.

      By Blogger December Quinn, at 6/22/2006 03:50:00 PM  

    13. Very childish. Stupid kinda childish. I say ignore them.

      Just sayin..

      Keishon, off for good cause it's raining cats and dogs here

      By Blogger Avid Reader, at 6/22/2006 04:59:00 PM  

    14. hahahaha

      Sybil, are you organizing the pool? I've got my five bucks ready and a name...

      By Blogger Fickle Fiona, at 6/22/2006 06:24:00 PM  

    15. Interesting. I was reading the whole cover kerfuffle earlier, and it had my head all awhirl. This seems a bit silly. Too put it mildly. Panties are obviously in a bunch. I have to say, I'll be checking in to see how long it keeps up, and if the commenters get less anonymous. 'Cuz really it's got to get a bit more clever. They're beefing, not snarking.

      By Blogger Devon, at 6/22/2006 08:17:00 PM  

    16. I know who it is!I just know it has to be Mrs. Gaggles! You see, she got tired of mocking Mrs Giggles and failed at being a webmistress (those pop ups drove me crazy), so now she's trying to be a blogger. lol. What I find interesting about this person is that the problem isn't with Karen or anyone else. The problem is and always will be within herself. Orrr.. it could be what's her name, Sandy C (New Bern). The posts have that kind of manic depressive voice to it.

      By Blogger Misty G, at 6/22/2006 08:56:00 PM  

    17. MISTY! I was worried about you! You blog was wonky yesterday!

      EEK! Glad you haven't left!

      here have more !!!!!

      I think it is classy to reply to your own blog than be nice enough to thank yourself for posting....

      really!sybil

      By Blogger sybil, at 6/22/2006 09:00:00 PM  

    18. Wasn't Mrs. Gaggles Lori Foster? Or am I wrong about that? Who cares, though? I certainly don't feel bad by being dissed on an anonymous blog by an author. It's the freedom of blogdom.

      By Anonymous Jane, at 6/22/2006 09:01:00 PM  

    19. That sound familiar but I can't remember if that was 'fact' or gossip.

      And I completely agree on blogging freedom! You should get out of the kitchen if you can't take the heat.

      Of course, if you light the flame don't be surprised if your ass gets toasted.

      By Blogger sybil, at 6/22/2006 09:55:00 PM  

    20. Why are you trying to blind me, syb?

      By Blogger Bam, at 6/23/2006 01:42:00 AM  

    21. cuz that was sort of porny and you said all porn should be sent to bam

      and I always do as I am told!

      By Blogger sybil, at 6/23/2006 01:48:00 AM  

    22. Well, the person I thought it was was mentioned but they deny they are that person. Damn, that's a horrible sentence. Anyways - I can't see anything now but blochy patches because black backgrounds hurt my eyes and give me a headache. Is this common for anyone else or am I just getting old.

      Ah, shudup.

    23. Wasn't Mrs. Gaggles Lori Foster? Good lord, why doesn't that shock me.

      The concept of snarking the snarky isn't bad, she needs to work on being funny instead of bitchy, and of course you're right...

      if you light the flame don't be surprised if your ass gets toasted. -- but this is something all snarkers need to remember.

      ---------

      yep I totally agree!

      By Blogger sybil, at 6/23/2006 10:32:00 AM  

    25. Actually Sybil, you might want to take my name off for abit on your links page. I deleted the blog until I could think of better things to write about. I'm gonna have my sisters put together a good blog page, but that could be a while. I've got a lot going on. So I'm just gonna stick to leaving messages for a while on other blogs.

      By Blogger Misty G, at 6/23/2006 10:21:00 PM  

    26. I didn't think Mrs Gaggles was Lori Foster, but I do think she was one of her fans, that's just my opinion, though. I really don't think this is an author, I think it's just a fan who no one likes when she uses her real name due to sounding like a whiney ass, and this is a catchy way to get attention.

      By Blogger Misty G, at 6/23/2006 10:24:00 PM  

    27. Well, I guess we should have taken bets on how long it would last. Maybe she read Meljean's comment and realized there was no future in snarking the snarky...she/he/it has signed off.

      ...Fi

      By Blogger Fickle Fiona, at 6/24/2006 08:53:00 AM  

    28. well I figured that with the FAQ post

      cuz really how tiring it has to be not only doing your posts but the majority of your comments as well...

      all in all I don't think it was MJD cuz really why?

      but I have decided not to believe things I didn't want to believe before - and been wrong so who knows.

      I tend to think it was a nobody author who got their undies in a twist, you know low/no sells and the only attention they got was on their bad ol covers with no bad review to go with it to show someone had tried to read their masterpiece.

      I doubt it was a fangirl cuz their TRWLURVE last longer unless their master found out and told them to knock it off.

      but really I am disappointed she/he/they couldn't even last the week

      ah well... next
