    Man…you are just butthurt.

You just mad cause the audience responded to hers more than yours and your group’s. Just write better.

    • As I stated in the article, no shade to her. I can’t comment on her actual writing ability or the strength of any novel she might create. She could be the most prolific writer of our time.
