I have. I rated this book 1 star, but didn't leave any additional comments. It was simply not my cup of tea & I didn't finish it. I received an email from the author that said, "Fuck you". I responded, "Will do, but why am I fucking myself?" 2 weeks later, I got this response:
" Brett Williams said,
You were the first reviewer of my first fiction work - and you gave it one star. Not only that, but you admit to not finishing it. Tell me, what have you ever accomplished? I see you have a child in your profile picture; I'll assume it is your child. How would you feel if someone designated your child as 'less than' before they were even old enough to speak?
I said 'fuck you' because all you did was try to undercut a new author. You took it upon yourself to be the first to review something that you did NOT finish. How petty is that? I'm alright with you not liking my work, but to do what you did is.. pitiful.
I hope you never see any fruits come from your labors. Ever."

He needs to grow a thicker skin. Once you put something out there it is no longer yours to control. People will have an opinion about it. Was this a self e-pub book? Most authors that have tried to go the traditional route of publishing have received their fair share of rejection. I would be tempted to go back and add to the review that if people want to hear rude and derogatory comments directly from the author that they should leave the same kind of review.

Next question overall
Is it ok to approach a guy that you're interested in? Or do you feel like if...
