Needless to say she kept a gracious demeanor despite this and did so, to her credit. She requested that the NFA donate money to a charity in return and they have "promised" to.
When word of the reversal of the tide so to speak, authors, writers, bloggers, publicists, agents, hell, agents wives, went nuts with fury, and began a twitter following under #ISupportSHINE, encouraging all to buy and support the kicked to the curb novel. Twitterers have responded with revolutionary speed and have done so! The ranking for Shine went ballistic and hit as of about an hour ago #263 in rankings!
There is no excuse for such crass behavior by the NFA/NBA and we hope they learn a lesson. What they did was not "preserve their integrity" but send their reputation into the gutter in my opinion.
In a nutshell, we stick together to defend our own, and our PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD!
