Just a warning. It looks like the Goodreads Review Blackmailers are back. They target an author, emailing her that if she does not buy their review service, they will troll her with one-star reviews. They follow through. This has happened before and is happening again. I’m sure it’s being done on other platforms too, this is just the one I heard about yesterday.
The author targeted is doing all she can, including contacting the FBI cyber crime unit and other law enforcement agencies. Because I heard about this in one of my private author groups, I’m not going to name her, but I just want you all to be aware of this blackmail.
And if you see this happening to your friends, please, lets do whatever we can to help them. We are a strong when we stand together, and we have to fight this blackmail bullshit.
I’m so furious. And so tired of evil trolls making hard-working, honest people miserable. But one thing I will never tire of is supporting my friends and authors.
