If any of you missed my two original posts, I was approached by an “authors” group who participate in 5-star review exchanges. You can read the original post by clicking the images below:

I had originally thought I might infiltrate this band of idiots and expose them all, but as a result of some very sage advice from writer friends, I decided to abandon that idea, and expose just one of them on my blog, “Author” Ben Harris, Jr. Mr. Harris became, shall we say, very upset, called me a liar and charged me with manipulating the message (even though I have the message archived, and it’s intent is very clear.)
Anyway. Now, it seems, things have been ramped up another notch. I have received four 1-star reviews on my book “The Clearing” over the last several days. I can I say I’m delighted. 🙂
See, my publisher Tim Taylor, is a very, very intelligent guy. He did a little research on Mr. Harris and the others who “reviewed” my book, and emailed his findings and conclusions to Amazon in the form of a letter of complaint.
Kinda turns out that some of the fine folks who had been in the shadows and unreachable have very kindly implicated themselves in this whole sordid affair. Oh, yeah!
I’m not worried a bit about the 1-stars. For one, none of them sound authentic, and for two, by the time Tim and I are done, they will all be discredited. Told ya, Mr. Harris, but you wouldn’t listen…
Now the shit storm is a tornado…:)
