Can This Claim by Amazon Be True?

Amazon just sent this in an email for authors in the Kindle Unlimited program. I don't believe it and wish to test it.

The author of a 100 page book which was borrowed and read completely 100 times would
earn $1,000 ($10 million multiplied by 10,000 pages for this author divided by
100,000,000 total pages). 

* The author of a 200 page book which was
borrowed and read completely 100 times would earn $2,000 ($10 million multiplied
by 20,000 pages for this author divided by 100,000,000 total pages).

* The author of a 200 page book which was borrowed 100 times but only read half way
through on average would earn $1,000 ($10 million multiplied by 10,000 pages for
this author divided by 100,000,000 total pages).

Please go to my book, "Fever Dreams and Disturbing Visions" if you have Kindle Unlimited and download it. 
http://www.amazon.com/Fever-Dreams-Disturbing-Visions-Carufel-ebook/dp/B007QJKOTA

You just have to scroll to the last page for it to count as a read. I have been getting reports on FB that Amazon has not been paying writers in the program, (I have yet to get a dime)and I hardly believe they are going to pay $20 a download as they claim in the email. 

This is not ploy for me to make $2000 because I see no chance of Amazon making good on this claim and I wish to prove that right.

Anne Rice Publicly Humiliated by Entertainment Weekly

Looks like the worm is finally turning.  Entertainment Weekly posted an article quoting Four authors about the online trolling problem.  They were John Green, Maureen Johnson, J.K. Rowling and Anne Rice.  It would appear this story was up a few hours before the comments started rolling in.

Well after seeing the backlash for claiming Rice is about fighting troll and bullies EW decided to cut the part praising Rice.

This is the scree shot they used and they had a few paragraphs about how Rice and STGRB are fighting to defend authors from troll and bullies.


She even touted in proudly on here Facebook page.


But what looked like more recognition for fighting trolls and bullies, she was instead called out as the worst troll and bully of them all.

Entertainment Weekly wasted no time cutting the part about Rice and STGRB from the article and replaced it with this.




Shortly thereafter Rice removed the link from her Facebook page without a word.  And then there were three authors commenting on the troll/bully problem in the Entertainment Weekly article.

Weinberg showed up on the EW site and is accusing those who pointed out that Rice and STGRB are bullies of being the trolls.  The old ploy of trying to play the injured party and blaming others for doing exactly what they are doing.

Rice, STGRB and their attack-troll Weinberg step up their lies, disinformation and defamation.

Over the course of the weekend Kevin Weinberg has launched a sustained attack on me on twitter. He has lied and stalked me and at the same time done the same thing in the Amazon forums.  He has tried every trick in the book to try and garner support for his attack by sending all his lies to several major trolls on Twitter as well as Rice and hashtagging Gamergate with every post,  He even went so far as to create a fake account, @nytti and make a fake post using Anne Rice's account and then trying to blame me for it.

lets start with a SS of Rice admitting she has been stalking the members of the Top Reviewers Forums on Amazon.


Then we'll add a SS of Rice targeting people using a hate list from the STGRB site in the discussion that Amazon deleted because Rice was targeting people.


Clearly Rice is out of control and by sending people to the hate list on the STGRB website she is putting people in real danger from her million loyal fans.
This is all old stuff but I thought I'd do a little recap before I got into the latest attack on twitter.

Here's a SS of a software package Weinberg is using to stalk me.


As you can see he has it all set up to track every move I make online.  If this isn't criminal stalking I don't know what is.  He even admitted that he somehow got this tracking software from the FBI.  I'm sure that's illegal too.  This is proof beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Rice/STGRB/Weinberg camp are actively stalking me.

This latest is an attempt to derail my lawsuit against Rice and STGRB with a fake post on twitter.  I at first thought it was legit.


But after posting about it on twitter the recipient claims he never got the post and it's fake.  We'll it just so happens this guy has a website very similar to STGRB that is nothing but personal attacks.  So it's hard to tell if he's lying to stir up trouble or if he's sucking up to a celebrity.

Weinberg wasted no time accusing me of making it in the Amazon forums. literally within minutes of the first tweet.  This raises a red flag.  He's is stalking me and was suspiciously quick to make accusations.   This leads me to believe that if it is fake he is the source.  But maybe not he's been beating the twitter bush for support for a few days and one of the exceptionally abusive, foul mouthed gamer trolls he's attracted using the #gamergate hash tags may have done it too.  So even if Weinberg didn't do it himself, he instigated it.
Another thing that makes this look like a clumsy attempt to set me up is the way every attack on me was to a list of people: @theralphretort, @PottyMouthGamer, @AnneRice, and with a hashtags #gamergate as well as myself.  It was like he had a little show set up and was trying to garner support and trying to impress Rice at the same time. I had never heard of the two people he was posting to and was wondering why they needed to know what he was saying to me.  Clearly he had some plan in mind.  It became clear with the fake post by Rice and the immediate accusation I had fabricated it.
As is Weinberg's usual MO he has since deleted most of the attack tweets, a ploy he uses in all social media.  He posts his attacks and leaves them up long enough for his cronies to see and then deletes them to avoid getting banned as he did on Goodreads and Wattpad.
I see his activities of stalking and tracking me as well as an attempt to discredit me and damage my lawsuit as criminal activity and he has been reported.  His time is limited and he won't be around much longer before he gets criminal charges and the judge bans him from using the internet.

In all honesty I doubt Rice made the post, she is too smart and mature to act like that.  But Wienberg is a classic, infantile, bottom-feeding, mommy's basement living, stalker troll who will do anything to try and make points with his queen.

Bill Fields Calls Out Anne Rice About Targeting With Her Fans.

I knew that sooner or later someone would eventually call out Rice about her targeting of people in the Amazon forums to her 1.1 million fans on Facebook.  I was playing Archeage when my browser started beeping like crazy signaling messages were being posted on FB.
I found the following conversation happening on Rice's FB page.





And then the whole discussion completely disappeared, deleted by Rice to make sure none of her fans she is so proud of claiming make 100k+ page views in an hour could see her making an absurd denial that she has put people in danger with her targeting.

Clearly she cannot say what every one of those 1.1 million fans could possibly do and she made a fool of herself saying she can.  But as Bill stated before she deleted and blocked him carries a lot of weight.  She has been confronted with the issue of the dangers she has created for the people on the STGRB hate list and as usual she is refused to even admit that there is any possibility of that happening.  She has demonstrated once again she has lost touch with reality and will not stop until something bad happens and she ends up being sued for every dime she has for inciting violence against her critics.

Rice has a long history of attacking her critics and now she has gotten to the point where she is a threat to others and needs to be reigned in before things get out of control and she is caught up in criminal activities that are way over her depth.  She thinks she know her fans, but she will never see them for who they are:  Aging goths who like to make believe they are vampires, not the most stable of fan bases as far as I can see.  They already live in a fantasy and seem to me to be very unstable, capable of taking any statement by Rice or against her as a cue to act violently.

Clearly she thinks character assassination, destroying reputations, livelihood and careers, doxxing or defamation and libel, is not harmful to anyone.

She is so consumed with herself she refuses to see reality.  Perhaps when she is summoned to court or even arrested for inciting violence by using her fans as a weapon to attack her critics and is hauled off in handcuffs the reality of what she and STGRB are doing will sink in.  But by then it will be too late.

She also uses the same ploy as always, claiming the poster is someone else, assuming that will make everything said invalid and justification to delete their comments and brush them off as irrelevant and making sure as few as possible of her fans ever see it.  For a writer she seems quite fond of ruthless censorship.

The Vicious Censorship of Anne Rice

Today, as usual Rice once again promoted the stalker, hate website STGRB.
A poster called Spence the alleged victim of the piece on her attempt to play the victim card for a review that violates the Amazon review guidelines.

You can view and archived copy of the the page where Spence whines about down votes for her bogus review.  Never go directly to that website since they use an IP tracker software so they can stalk people online and dox them.

http://web.archive.org/web/20150516205530/http://www.stopthegrbullies.com/2015/05/16/the-machin-shin-of-amazon/

What both Spence and STGRB fail to mention is that Rice and Spence are buddies in the Amazon forums.  That is why people down-voted her review and no-one was intentionally carpet bombing her.  But with her, everything is about her.

Rice posted a link to the website.  A poster pointed out the problem with the review.


It took Rice less than ten minutes to delete this post, the actual truth of the matter and no doubt, as she usually does, block the poster from ever posting on her page again.  That's all it take to get banned by Rice, the truth.

If you don't believe it's true test it for yourself.  Go to Rice's Facebook page and simply ask Rice why she supports a website that posts personal attacks on people and see how long you last.

I have also been unable to find the posts where Rice directs her 1.1 million fans to a hit list on the STGRB site.  It looks like either Facebook or she has removed them.  if it was her it was a waste of time since I and many others have screen shots of all her attacks on the Amazon forum members.

Rice's Targeting People on Amazon Yields Results

Today when I went to check the mail, I found this written on my door.  This looks to me like a set of vampire fangs and the word "Die".  I have no idea where it came from or who did it.  I do know it wasn't there yesterday when I got back from the store around 3:00 PM.

I feel this is a direct result of Anne Rice targeting the members of the Amazon forums, using a hate list from the STGRB website, to her 1.1 million fans on Facebook.


I haven't contacted to police yet but will this afternoon.  I believe this is an attempt to terrorize me and make me drop my lawsuit against Rice and STGRB.
I will add more to this post once I talk to the police.

UPDATE: The police just left, a very nice officer took photos and has given me his email so I can send all the material about Rice targeting the Amazon Forum members on the STGRB hate list.  This may finally get some traction with both Amazon and Facebooks to stop Rice's campaign to target those who disagree with her to her 1.1 million FB fans.

I find it ironic that some local idiot here where I live, trying to support the author they worship may well be the downfall of STGRB, and Anne Rice's presence on both Amazon and Facebook.  One can only hope.

The officer stated that he considered the graffiti on my door both terroristic threatening, a crime that carries 5 years in Minnesota, and a death threat.

We'll see where it goes from here.
Already MD has posted here anonymously accusing me of carving it into my door.  I haven't done much carving with a magic marker nor has anyone else for that matter, and the filth came right off with a bit of denatured alcohol.

Anne Rice named in Lawsuit

Press Release 

Dateline Minnesota: A local Minnesotan has filed a civil suit in 3rd District Court naming celebrity author Anne Rice in the complaint. Rice has long been a harsh critic of negative reviews, even going so far as to place full page newspaper ads to attack her critics.

It would seem she has stepped over the line with her new campaign against her critics in the Amazon Forums. She has become affiliated with a website that professes to be a pro-author, anti-bully site, but their actions speak otherwise. The reality is they are a stalker, hate site that uses I.P. trackers to stalk and dox people who don't agree with them. Every post on the site is a personal attack on someone. (Doxxing is when the confidential details of a person are published in a personal attack such as home address, phone, employer, etc.)

The website we do not name, has personal attacks on targeted authors on every page of the website. Author Rick Carufel has had enough and has filed a civil suit for defamation and libel against the site and their celebrity sponsor Anne Rice. The website was relatively obscure until Rice catapulted it into the spotlight.

In early 2014 Mr. Carufel contacted Ms. Rice and requested she stop promoting the website because of the defamation and libel against him on the site. She refused. 
Since then she has begun openly promoting and recommending the hate site using her Facebook account and the Amazon Forums.
Amazon would have none of it and promptly deleted her discussion promoting the site. A week later she deleted every one of her posts on those forums, an attempt at damage control and to try to conceal her very questionable activities as soon as word got out she was being named in the defamation case.

The Plaintiff in the case has added Ms. Rice to the lawsuit because her promotion of the site to her millions of fans on social media has greatly added traffic to the website and therefore greatly increased the number of people exposed to the defamation. She being fully aware of the vicious personal attack on authors Rick Carufel and Carroll Bryant on every page of the site since early 2014.

Therefore Mr. Carufel has requested cease and desist orders to have the libelous content and/or the website removed, silence Rice's endorsement of the hate site and has requested $10,000 personal damages for every time Ms. Rice endorses/d the hate website publicly since the email exchange between she and the plaintiff in May of 2014.

"I'm only interested in making the defamation stop," said Mr. Carufel, "Rice believes that anyone who disagrees with her are bullies and has repeatedly attacked the Amazon forum members. Recently she used a list from the hate website to target the Amazon forum members, specifically the Top Reviewers Forum, to her million fans using Facebook. Now she's campaigning to have her fans dox anyone who disagrees with her, dubbing them notorious gangster bully thugs who need to have their personal lives exposed, attacked and damaged because they don't agree with her. She has become a direct threat to my personal safety and that of others who use their own names. I no longer feel safe in my own home and dread every knock on the door."

"She is clearly trying to influence the review process for Amazon Books and has personally greatly diminished the number of reviews on Amazon with intimidation through celebrity. She uses her fame and fan base as a weapon to attack her opponents. This has to stop, Rice has to be stopped."

"As a forum member who uses their real name online this behavior by Rice poses a real physical threat to me. I know it's a million to one chance that some crazed Rice fan shows up at my door wearing plastic fangs, but then Rice has a million fans doesn't she?"

"She seems to think she can harass, bully, threaten and terrorize people who disagree with her. I see her recent activity as being very close to domestic cyber-terrorism and illegal. She uses every possible device to harass and intimidate anyone with whom she disagrees. She professes to be a champion against online bullying but is the biggest bully of them all."
