Wonderful. If the ruiners can only refrain from doing their thing. I wonder if it would help, when they do, to give a large supply of positive feedback to counter them. While, of course, only giving gentle hints or suggestions towards positivity to the @#$$$^* scum that do post the negatives.

Lovely, and with the second half tomorrow. Again, with hints of the new magic she has. And how she had to undergo dangerous rituals to get it. I keep thinking that by the time they acknowledged this would be a book they had already gone far past the point where it could be anything less than a novella.

Not seeing a downside there.

My understanding was that they had a Julie novel (possibly more than one) tentatively planned when they finished Magic Triumphs, but put it on indefinite hold due to some of the negative things people were throwing around after that release; they were not ready to deal with the inevitable jerks who couldn’t handle Julie growing up and not being exactly the way they expected, and decided to take it out on the authors.

I get being frustrated when a much-loved character changes in a way you don’t like. I can point out a handful of examples from IA‘s writing... even in this Julie story. But I can’t understand the people who take it personally and worse, retaliate with viciousness against the authors.

It's my understanding that those people are entitled, narcissistic twits.

that is true, and i wish there was an omniscient Spirit of Human Decency capable of manifesting and slapping each of them whenever they start to do something like that.

Go nutzo on an author for something in a story? Eh; if I don't care for something I stop buying. And now my mind is back to murder at the con, in "Bimbos Of The Death Sun."

I enjoyed Bimbos of the Death Sun. The following book, Zombies of the Gene Pool, didn't capture my interest as well.

They have added some interesting stuff to the story. :D
