Remember the Black Bed Sheets meshuggas? Sure you do. Ok, you don't care. I don't care. Hell, I only took amusement out of Charles Day calling me an asshole for telling Black Bed Sheets that they made fugly ass books and that their "we don't charge you" is a bullshit thing to put in submission guidelines (If you hire me, I won't piss on your desk).

Anyhow I found my name in one of those Google searches that I do and found that there is a writer calling herself Award Winning Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason who wrote about me. Award Winning Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason stated that I was being an asshole, but never quite defended Black Bed Sheets books beyond saying that Stephen King once blurbed the owner (damn Stephen King puts his name on everything) and that you should NOT judge a book by its cover.

Of course, if you take that literally, you are in for some truly shitty reading experiences. Apparently Award Winning Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason publishes with them. She also never won any awards worth mentioning and if she was best selling it was on a VERY short list. Most likely she sold two of her Black Bed Sheets books in one day back in 2009 and for Black Bed Sheets that was a HUGE sale.

But I doubt that she is really Award Winning Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason - oh sure, she lives in Florida. She was pretty cool with Paula Deen being racist and Trayvon Martin's murder. But she's not best selling. Nor is she award winning, unless she has one of those mugs that says "World's Best Grandma".

Apparently when I found the blog and commented on a couple of things, she did a follow up entry. I believe it was the "I know you are, what am I" entry where she claims that my books are no better looking than Black Bed Sheets.

But hey, she's doing what she loves. Books with blurbs like
Marion Lewis Reinhart, an androgynous serial killer, has five days to live before he is put to death by lethal injection. Due to the severity and mysterious nature of his crimes, he has been given permission to tell the world his side of the story. Not the story told in court, the real story. Reinhart has his own agenda. He believes he was justified in his quest for terrible retribution and he wants to share his truth. His web of lies, twisted facts, and narcissistic story telling hides a truth more shocking than any of his murders.
and
Welcome to Your Nightmare is an anthology of things that go bump in the night. Written by an exciting diversity of talented writers, some not previously published and some published abroad. Welcome to Your Nightmare was compiled by award winning author Yvonne Mason, also a contributor with a thrilling story of her own. The stories and poems in Satan's Holiday are as unique as the authors who penned them and no two are alike...some are extremely dark and foreboding, others are quaint while yet others are scary and perhaps even shocking, guaranteed to entertain and delight any reader. To top it all off veteran horror writer Nicholas Grabowsky (Halloween IV, Red Wet Dirt, The Everborn) and the owner/founder of one of the most talked about horror presses of the decade, Black Bed Sheet Books has graciously added one of his own horror stories to this unique book.

The screams which have been silent for thirty four years are no longer silent. They now have a voice. July, 1972 Nancy Trotter and Pamela Sue Wells were taken to a remote area on South Hutchinson Island in Martin County tied, gagged and hung. They were left to die. But they managed to escape. This escape led to an investigation of a crime that before 1972 had no name. Law enforcement was in uncharted waters. The crime serial killings. The killer Gerard Schaefer. Nancy Trotter and Pamela Wells were just two of the nine known and possibly as high as 34 unknown victims. They ranged from Fort Lauderdale Florida to Europe and N. Africa. Silent Scream finally gives the victims a voice - Their screams are no longer silent and with that voice comes peace.
I mean a more cynical person than I might note that the first one is Hannibal Lector fan fiction, the second one boasts the guy who runs Black Bed Sheets (and wrote the shitty screenplay to Halloween IV) as the best writer and the last one is a shitty true crime book without any editorial oversight.

But what do I know, I'm not an Award Winning Best Selling Florida Author
