Lucy Flood aka Lucy Chesser is the newest member of WIN*, another Whining Incompetent Nematode. (Kudos to Rickydick Carufel for creating this wonderful term to describe those LOSErs. I don´t often agree with Rickydick, but in this case I do.)
* WIN is a hate group on Facebook under the "leadership" (ROFL) of Paula Shene, M.T. Dismuke and Sharon Desruisseux.
It was originally created by RIckydick Carufel, then he handed over the business to Gail Briggs and was later kicked out from his own group for not wanting to kiss her ass. Gail was always his lovesick puppy who followed him around like a poodle on a leash before she wanted to go dictator on him. Just Rickydick is nobody´s fool, sort of.
If you want to avoid to run into whiney asshat authors it´s certainly worth to take a look at the members of WIN aka LOSE.
Now let´s start with Lucy´s email to the hate site STGRB:
As you can see I blackened out the names of those goofreads users she named since I dont think it´s necessary to risk that those folks get even more harassed by Lucy and her asshat friends then they already were.
Lucy, yeah yeah, you only asked a question. Not exactly, you went straight into attack modus and called a reviewer right from the start a troll for no other reason that she one-starred your book. Maybe she simply didn´t care for your crapsterpiece, you know? And let´s not forget this, it is still perfectly her right and within goofreads Terms Of Service to one-star your book or any other book with no explanation necessary. (OK, maybe not anymore, but that´s a different story altogether.)
And you know what, Lucy, it´s none of your freaking business.
Pointing out the goofreads Terms Of Service is mean? Seriously? OK, than you have a slightly different interpretation of reality than I have, or anyone else I know. So be it. Delusion is your friend, Lucy.
Now let´s move on a bit, shall we? Maybe start a drinking game how many sock puppets of yours we can find? How about it, Lucy? Wouldn´t that be fun, yes? Just that everyone will be drunk in no time.
Do make it easier to follow I include the links to Lucy´s account(s) and her book ´Hidden´ on goofreads.

Hidden by Lucy Flood: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18365119-hidden
Now let´s start with Lucy Flood five-starring her own book which she published under the name Lucy Chesser. Which I am pretty sure is a violation of goofreads ToS since she doesn´t openly declare herself as the author of the book. Misleading at minimum, full right deception at best.
And of course as every good professional author *snort* Lucy Flood/Lucy Chesser has a couple of sock puppets running to game the system, and five-starring her dreck.
Funny that all of those socks have only reviewed ´Hidden´, heck, not even having any other books on their shelves, isn´t it? Couldn´t you make them more believeable, Lucy? Lack of imagination, or are you just that lazy to put more effort into your socks? And of course it´s for sure a coincidence that those have also the very same location as Lucy Flood/Lucy Chesser herself, right? Melbourne is a wonderful place, or so I have heard.
But I admit this one made me laugh: One of her socks´ review was liked by STGRB authors Mysti Parker, Karen S. Bell, Emma Paul and Paula Shene, the Zoe sock puppet and Lucy herself. Funny shit.
And of course there is Zoe. I mentioned Zoe already, right? A known sock puppet operated by an author who has close ties with the hate site STGRB, and kisses ass as if her life depends on it. Just look at any book page by any of those WIN-Losers, and Zoe is already there.
