Oh god, Where do I begin, I think I may have found a book that beats both Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight in the suck factor. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. This literally reads like bad fan fiction from the pit and the reviews are freaking hilarious. How did this guy get published? Is this seriously what the literary world is coming to?

I've been linked to this myself recently. The book is the kid of dreck you'd see on fictionpress, terrible grammar and spelling, awful structure, unbelievable dialogue... With an added undercurrent of being really focused on schoolgirls and their boobs.

A couple of the reviews point out that the book fetishises the characters, spending ages describing their clothes and bodies...

He paid, specifically using Amazon's own [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] vanity publisher.

Speaking of "this guy", let's find out [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Quote :
Noah Murphy grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland which features prominently in his writing. After graduating from Goucher College with a double major in philosophy and religion, he began a pet sitting service.

An expert use of a philosophy and religion qualifcation.

Quote :
In his spare time Noah volunteers at a not for profit parrot rescue. His love of animals provides inspiration for many of the anthropomorphic characters in his books.

Incoming fursicution...

Quote :
An avid writer and blogger, Noah Murphy is the author of the fantasy K23 Detective Series and a young adult superhero novel, Ethereal Girls. He enjoys sharing his opinions on life, literature and popular culture with his 19,000 followers on Twitter and on his blog.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is another book of his up for sale...

So... I found a link to his twitter, and luck have it, I checked just as he posted this:

Quote :
Oh my gawd i just saw peta wilson's tits on la femme nikita

Wow...

He also seems to be defending his work from others...

Quote :
The trolls that smeared my name generally bow down before the altar of people like H.P. Lovecraft, one very disturbed individual.

...

Quote :
H.P. Lovecraft was one fucked up dude, imagine the erotic fan fiction he'd write.

This guy seems to have a... what's the phrase... Singular... directional... thinking?

Quote :
The only difference between someone like me and (insert worshiped but insane author here) is they didn't have social media.

oh...

Quote :
,People can make fun of me, troll my work, but I'll get the last laugh why? truly original stuff comes from crazy eccentrics like me.

Hmmm

Quote :
but Noah, you've haven't sold any books, you're a nobody" guess what so were most of the authors I'm talking about. Only known posthumously

He's an idiot.

He's hooked on the quirky = insane = creative genuis kick. Think's he's quirky because he writes stories about [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (ick) and now believes he's destined for posthumous greatness, because we're not smart enough to appreciate how great he is now.

Yesh. Fuck this moron. He's a Chandler. (Is that an adjective now? Fuck it, I'm using it as onw)

What I don't get is the price. Why is the book $10.99 when most self-published books on Amazon are $2.99 and under? Does he think it's worth that much more?

Almost certainly.

He also describes himself as a "High Functioning Autistic", believes The Feminists have done irreparable damage to societal masculinity and doesn't like using the term straight, as in "Gay or Straight" because he believes it implies that "Straight" is wrong.

The guy is a deluded, idiotic, self-superior manchild.

Could fit in well here.

I've been playing around with Audacity for some other stuff I'm doing and I did a terrible thing.

(I mention that I read a typo there. It isn't, it's just an odd sentence and I fail at reading comprehension. Sorry for the occasional puffs on the mic too, I, lost the wind-cover for it - I should be able to jury-rig something to minimise that in future...)

That's what I would have guessed too just by looking at the awful artwork on the cover.

Is it just me, or does the anthro snake have boobs too? It's hard to tell for sure because the shadowing is so strange.
