I don't know who the heck this Keith guy is, but I can't believe my ears!!!
How could he attempt to insult Jen (of the Pulse) that way? When I came across his post, I was shocked that he would personally attack her like that. It is uncalled for and completely unprofessional of him!!!
The worst part, was that he would dare to mock the death of her grandmother in her family. What the FU*# is he smoking???
Let's stop this BS and get real... I too am an independent publisher, and I know how hard it is and how much time is spent to get one's work out there, I know it first hand, but how can he possibly blame his drop in sales because of Jen who was attempting to help him? That is insane!!! What if she didn't have a website? Ever think of that??? What I have read on Jen's web site at the Pulse, it is CLEAR as all hell, that she is one of the few who actually give a freaking voice to us independent artists and this guy Keith should be grateful his page was on her main page of her web site for 11 days!
Before he goes blasting her like that, he should go and see that in fact she DID keep his page up in the past interview-section and in fact, even took the time to explain to him that she was dealing with a passing in her family which is none of his business anyway! Did he ever lose someone in his family? How would he feel if someone talked to him that way?
I hope that under the circumstances, he will publicly apologize to her!
How rude to publicly post such comments as he did.
In the opening of his post, I can only imagine what that reviewer, Paul (of Jazma), must feel at how Keith used his review like that.
Keith should not use his interview for his own agenda in attacking Jen on the post as he did! Paul was obviously attempting to help Keith as well with promoting his work and give him a voice too and obviously had no idea that Keith would use Paul's interview in the manor that he did.
I checked out that Paul's Jazma site and it appears that Paul has never said anything negative to my knowledge about anyone as Keith has done and this is just uncalled for of Keith.
I cannot justify why Keith would USE Paul like that and why he would go after Jen the way he did? There is no excuse for it, if he had an issue, right or wrong, he should have done it in private or brushed it off, we all get attacked on the net and I have had my fair share, but I have never lowered myself to stoop to that level... Again, It if fine if there was a misunderstanding, but give someone the benefit of the doubt for Christ's sake and don't attack the death of their grandmother!!!
Again, I think Keith is using Jen as a punching bag and that he owes her a public apology for his unnecessary attacks.
I think he forgets that she works nonstop too and has more interviews to handle than you can imagine, just look at her web site, she is one person! If Keith would think about how hard he worked on his book and now think of how hard she must work to give the proper attention to each person she interviews, and she does give a voice equally to independent artists as she does for all comics, then Keith would have cooled down and seen what she was attempting to help way above the call of duty so to speak.
Again, Had Keith Privately vented his concerns to her and given her the benefit of the doubt privately without posting it to the public in this tell-all childish way, then anyone could respect that, but he made an attempt to embarrass and humiliate her and make fun of the death in her family, when in fact, all he did was show everyone just how wrong and hurtful he could be to a decent and thoughtful person like Jen.
I hope he will make an attempt to rectify this situation for Jen's sake and out of respect to fellow hard working artists.
