Facebook/Twitter Unpublished

I am receiving many emails in regards to the sudden disappearance of my Facebook Author Page and Twitter … I have been forced to temporarily ‘unpublish’ my social media sites….I know it is the worst time possible to not be connected to you all, but it is the goal of a few to ruin the release of Crashed.

Some completely, untrue, unfounded, and heinous accusations have been made about myself and my family over the past few days. The accusations have no bearing and the group’s sole way to try and make their point, is to bully and attack my pages, privately PM my readers harassing them and spread lies and rumors…

This from their page:

Congratulate me everyone…author K. Bromberg on her Facebook page has BLOCKED ME!!! I just tried to look at her page to see what was still there from my friends and I keep getting kicked back to my home page. She’s trying to keep us away so that we don’t ruin her book debut…
If you have tried to get through and get blocked please let us know here. You are all breaking though and we are making a difference, piece by every little piece. Keep it up everyone and as always THANK YOU!!!

And then:  “And her book comes out tomorrow can’t wait to see the reviews…”

And then: “We should blow up her twitter account too…”

I am at a loss for words on how to go forward at this time but to ask to not engage with anyone who PM’s you with links, immediately report and slanderous reviews that you come across on Amazon as well as send the link/screenshot of the comments/harassment to me so that I can pursue a slander/defamation case on each individual that chooses to partake in the defamation of my character as well as my family’s.

Thank you for all of your support,

Kristy

  11. don’t you worry we got your back!! and what is wrong with people that is just cruel!!!

  12. So very sorry to hear this. Some people are so mean and viscous because of something lacking in their own lives. Keep your chin up and head held high. Congratulations on your new release!

  13. I am so sorry to hear this is happening Kristy, I will never understand why people have so much hate in their hearts. Love you and your books and will support you always.

  14. WTF??? this kind of people just embarrass me in so many levels… K!! we love ya!! and your books .. we are here to support ya.. the hell with the haters!! Your REAL fans will forever have your back!! xoxo

  15. This truly makes me sick to my stomach that they're are folks out there like this!! I'm so happy for you Kristy and your release day! Dont let the haters bring you down! Know there are people that love you and your books!!!

  16. So sorry that this is happening to you & your family. We ‘race’ you!!

  17. This is unreal! You know you have very faithful readers and we feel very badly that you and your family are going through such needless issues! Stay strong, know you are loved, and we hope you can figure out and take care of these little people!

  18. Whoever has done this is malicious and to go after your family is the worst of it all. You have many followers who support you and know you’re true worth aaa person and author and those who do this are pathetic and lacking any moral code!

  19. What is wrong with people !!!!

  20. I’m truly sorry that people like this exist in our world. Do not let the idiocy of a few haters upset you on such a huge amazing day for you

  21. You've got to be kidding, what are these peoples problem. You are amazing and have always been so forth coming with us in here. Don't let the haters get to you we all support you .

  22. I am so sorry. Words can not express how angry I am for you. At what point do we become adults and stop bullying? It makes me sick that you are going through this when today should be nothing but amazing for you. Please know how much you are loved by your readers and fans. Please know that you have written my favorite series that I have read…. maybe ever… you have given me the mental breaks needed to get through my days. Stay strong, I hope this goes away very soon. thank you for all you do.

  23. Ppl are just jealous. No other book/series has been as loved and as anticipated. I have waited till all are released to start reading and it has been hard because for months my news feed has been full of Driven Fueled Crashed posts. You have written a series that is loved by so many (and I’m sure by me when I’ve read them) and others are jealous of your talent and success. Stay strong, your fans love you. Now excuse me while I go read my most anticipated series. No sleep till I’ve read them all. P.s its 1:32am lol

  24. Jennifer Diaz what the heck?!

  25. Dawn Nicole Costiera.

  26. Terrible right!!??

  27. KARMA, love…..karma! I don’t know who’s doing this to you, but it will come back to bite them in the end. You can’t do people like this and not expect to have it come back on your tenfold. You have my support – and when I find out who the author is behind this, I will never support her/him by buying their books ever again. <3

  28. Ms Kristy – first let me say that you are by far one of my favorite authors. 🙂 If you ask anyone that knows me, I must have skipped “Patience 101” in life as I have a hard time patiently waiting for things but do understand the concept of great things come to those who wait lol However, every minute was worth the wait for each publication and I have been impatiently awaiting your next masterpiece in the Driven series…..

    The way you write and spin a tale into a sexy, real-life, fantasy heart breaking love story is nothing short of amazing and a great testament to who you are as a person. Your attention to detail, compassion, realness and beautiful definitions of the written word define who you are as a wife, mother, friend, acquantence and someone that takes great care of how you are with others and how those closest to you perceive you.

    NEVER let others who are too closed minded to appreciate your efforts and the in-depth process that we (all your impatiently waiting adoring fans) know you go through to give us the wonderful balance of a story as you do. Those that feel the need to verbally hurt you and those closest to you do not deserve an hour, minute or second of your beautiful thoughts.

    Your readers are faithful and “impatiently” and will always be awaiting your next story like they are waiting to re-unite with a long lost friend/family member. We will always be here waiting with love and admiration to see where you will take us next on the fabulous journey through your mind….

  29. I 100% support you. I’m so sorry you are going through this. I’m reading Crashed today and will post my review of its awesomeness as soon as possible. Just know that you have so many people in your corner! <3. Hugs!

  30. Shared on my personal facebook page and my twitter. Positive thoughts to you for not giving in.

  31. Peeps bullying is never ok. This shit poses me off like no other!!!!

  32. OMG! This is horrible! How can people be so mean???? Race you K! xoxo I went right to my ipad @ 5am to begin reading but sorry to say I had to go to work lol but no worries I have my ipad here with me to continue. I hope & pray that things work out quick cuz you’ll be missed on social media! YOU are the best! God Bless!

  33. I am so sorry to hear about this. I adore your books and the interaction on your pages. Why some people have to be such a$$holes is beyond me. Don’t let them bring you down. I RACE YOU!

    Your #1 Fan
    Christy Bedsole

  34. Great idea, no spoilers! I race you all……see you on the other side x

  35. I am so sorry that has been happening to you and your family, it is such a shame that some people aren’t happy unless they are bringing others down. I wish you the best of luck, and I am excited to read more of your books. Keep your head up, and I wish you the best of luck in getting this all under control.

  36. I am behind you and you work 100%. Shame on those people. Can’t wait to read crashed. It’s on my kindle just waiting for me.. Will probably start tonight.

  37. I’m so sorry to see that this happened to you. I have your Driven series on my Kindle, but unfortunately, I haven’t gotten a chance to read them, yet. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful and glowing things about your writing and this series. Congratulations on your new release and continue using your artistic talent as you see fit. To quote Bernard M. Baruch, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” ♥

  38. I am so sorry that the actions if a few have lead to this…know that your books are amazing and have brought joy to your readers.

  39. This is so sad on so many levels. How can people be so hateful?

  40. KB

    I am somewhat at a loss for words here. As a reader it disgusts me to see someone go through such lengths to trash another person. And why? Social media was a way to help our authors spread the word of their books. Have fun and interact with fans that may not have had that chance before. It sickens me that others have felt social media makes a great outlet to trash another author and her books. Your loyal and true fans will NOT let this affect their love for your writings K. Your books sell themselves and you do not need to resort to trashing another author to have your book move up the ranks. It is a shame others resort to this instead of having faith in the words they have written. Just shows if they have no faith in their own work why the hell should we!! I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this. I hope all this gets sorted out soon sweets! We are here for you! Best Wishes Doll!

  41. I am so sorry to hear this. Some people don’t have a life and has to pick on others to make themselves seem worthy. You do what you need to do. I will stand behind you 100%. I race you!

  42. This is just so fucked up!!! Fuck those wannabes. I’m an author, blogger and avid reader/reviewer and I will dismantle anyone who bullies. Yep, I’m from NY and we don’t hide behind texts or posts. We’re in your face. What a sin. Christ makes me sick! Xoxo

  43. Wow what is wrong with people? Very sad this is happening to you. Your a great author, just got Crashed and can’t wait to read it 🙂

    Thanks!
    Laura G.

  44. I 100% support you and all of your hard work. I never knew that people did this in the book world.
    Please keep up the good work and I Love Your Work!

  45. Not sure what is happening and what they are trying to accomplish, but u have my support. I love the books of yours I have read!!

  46. So sorry this is happening. People need to grow up

  47. Good God, these people need to just stop right now.
    Why ruin your fans joy of the best hobby ever (reading, reviewing loving and supporting smart smut and it’s amazing authors like you Kristy) by being spiteful, mean and cruel.
    How bloody rude of them.
    Your supporters know and love you. That’s all you need to remember of the sad few days you’re being put through.

  48. This Saddens me… and I am speechless right now. I am SO sorry Kristy 🙁 Keep your head up, don’t let idiots bring you down. I’m sickened by this. Your books are EPIC and no one can ruin the wonderful experience you have given all of US. Hugs n Kisses xoxoxoxo

  49. How childish can they get. Hope you get to sort this out. Got my book ready to sit in peace and read it. ? Was this from another author. ? Hope you get it sorted soon and cant wait to startreading. Thought this day would never come

  50. What nasty spiteful people. Disgusting.

  51. Am I to put this on my fb wall or just keep it here

  52. I’m so sorry this happened to you. I have your Driven Series on my Kindle but haven’t been able to read it, yet. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful and glowing things about your writing and this series. Congratulations on your new release and continue to keep you chin up. To quote Bernard M. Baruch, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

  53. I’m so sorry this has happened to you. Bullying is never right!

  54. Kristy so sorry people are bullying you and saying bad things about you and your family. I support you and your books 100%. I RACE you. Jamie

  55. I sorry to hear that you and your family are been harrassed like this. Its a shame that a few sad and probably jealous individuals are spoiling the release of crashed for you. I have started reading it today and as usual am completely hooked! Keep up the good work

  56. Why on earth would people slander you and your family are they crazy buy the book if you like it don’t if you don’t quite simple if u ask me I for one will be purchasing it read the first two loved them! Some people are absolute nut bags!! Also congratulations on crashed really looking forward to reading it 🙂

  57. I cannot believe that you are going through this and I am so sorry! Before I even read this I posted the links to your books on my author’s page because I am so freaking excited to go home and start reading crashed tonight!! I think you are an amazing author and I can’t tell you how much I love the driven series…simply amazing. I really don’t know why people are so mean and cruel. I literally cannot understand it. I am truly sorry that you have to go through this and just know that everyone I speak to absolutely loves your books!! hugs! xx

  58. I can’t believe anyone could do something so horrible. I’m so sorry.

  59. Oh my God, why? I don’t understand why people do this. I’m sorry you and your family are being subjected to this. Keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  60. I am so sad Kristy that this is happening to you and causing you such undeserved stress when it should be a time of joy, of celebrating your awesome success. Know that we, your fans, your friends are here for you, support you and Race you. Whatever you need from us, consider it done. Big hugs to you. <3

  61. I’m sorry that small minded people have nothing better to do than cause problems for you. Love your work. A fan Nancy Huddleston

  62. absolutely ridiculous! What is wrong with people?!?! They must live sad, miserable lives. Just remember what goes around come around!! I absolutely love your books and I think you conduct yourself with poise and class on all social media sites. I cannot wait to read Crashed and am a little bit upset because I have a conference tonight for work that goes until 8:30 so I probably won’t be able to start until tomorrow night. I hope that even with all of the negativity surrounding your book release you remember that we all love you, Rylee, and Colton. Good always conquers evil! They won’t get away with this, and if they want to leave bad reviews we just need to make sure that we all leave good ones!

  63. never fear we’re all still here!

  64. I am so sorry that this is happening to you just when your book is coming out and when this should be a wonderful period in your life. I dont like bullies and I never listen to them. I try very hard not to read anything they have to say and I dont believe anything they say knowing it comes from a place of hate. That being said I just wanted you to know that I for one am in your corner and should you decide to open your FaceBook page back up I will be there.

  65. I am so sorry that this is happening to you. I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS on your new release and that your true fans are supporting you 100%!!

  66. This has been seen on a book fan page! Bullying didn’t work ladies….made several people buy her books due to your drama. Karma is a bitch and it’s gonna slap you in the face. Keep on writing K. Bromberg…people are buying! Love Love Love your books!

  67. How awful! I am so sorry that you are going through this. People can be so rude and immature!

  68. This is horrible! It is so saddening that there are people out there who have nothing better to do then bash you and other writers. I totally support you!! Just wanted to let you know.

  69. So sorry this is happening to you. I think you are a wonderful author and look forward to everything you do. People are hideous sometimes!

  70. That’s terrible! Haven’t seen any slander myself, but I don’t understand peoples motive for hate! I wish you the best on your release day, despite what’s going on!

  71. I was so looking forward to the realease of crashed today and then I realized that your facebook page was not up. I don’t understand why people are being hateful. Don’t let people ruin what you have going for yourself because they are just jealous and spiteful and don’t have a life.

    Anyways I have downloaded crashed and I know I will need a glass of wine for my beating heart and the roller coaster ride I am about to endure.

    Don’t let people beat you down it is so not worth your time and effort.

    “KEEP CALM, SIT BACK AND LET KARMA FUCK THEM UP” lol

    Arlene

  72. I am a new, HUGE fan of yours. Keep your head up, because scum like them never come out ahead in the end. You have a ton of fans…and we support you!!

  73. Love your books and I hope these people realise how much they can hurt and effect people. Bullying is a terrible thing. I hope you have a great release of your book. X

  74. I’m so sad to see this. You have always been such a pleasure to work with and your books are beyond amazing. If there is anything I can do for you don’t hesitate to shoot me a message or email.

  75. I am so sorry to hear this is happening to you. And that people are disgusting enough to involve your family. I love and adore your books. I can’t wait to read Crashed! You will continue to have my support!

  76. So sad and sorry you are going through this. Please email me and let me know if I can help. Maybe a big blog post for your release. Lots of love!

  77. matter with people these days? I am so sorry to hear this is happening to you. Stay Strong!

  78. I don’t care what they have to say and I will continue to read your books. You would think that all of the childish crap would have stopped when you finished school but some people never grow up. Keep up the good work. I love your books.

  79. That is absolutely horrid. My heart is literally crying for you. I’m a mom. That is something I teach my kids to stand against. I’m proud to have seen my oldest stand up for a friend getting picked on. Those people are grown adults. I shudder to think what they’re teaching their kids. I’m sorry for what you’re going through. I wish you strength during this.

  80. Do NOT let any idiots break you! We love your books and support you 110%!!!!!!

  81. I’m so sorry this is happening. People resorting to this is awful.

  82. Happy release day!!!

    I am so sorry some people never grew up and think bulling is okay. I think you are an amazing author. Don’t the words of a few speak for the words of many. You ARE AWESOME and so ARE YOUR BOOKS!!!

  83. This breaks my heart. I am so sorry you have to got through this. It’s not fair and it shouldn’t be allowed to happen. Praying for you and your family

  84. First and for most I am so sorry on this wonderful day you are dealing with something so horrible. I am sadden greatly that people would be this ugly and go to these malicious lengths at all. I know you are probably bombarded with message of support but I had to tell you that I am sorry anyways. I will makes sure to do all you asked up above, and if there is anything else please don’t hesitate to ask.

  85. I’m so sorry to hear this! This is awful! I’m at loss for words on how mean and heinous people can be… 🙁
    I’m currently reading Crashed and LOVING it! 😀

    Big HUGS, Claudia

  86. I am so sorry to hear that yet another author has been run off by these asshats! I know of at least two other authors who have been attacked and forced to quit writing/write under a pen name. Why do these people who hide behind their computer screen feel the need to attack authors personally? If they don’t like a book, leave a constructive review and move on. What do you get by doing this? *SMH* I have not heard or seen anything but people excited about your new release. I am sorry this is happening to you. 🙁

  87. I love your books and this crap is exactly that, crap. Don’t let these losers get you down, your fans will love and support you regardless.

  88. I am so sorry that this is happening to you. What they don’t realize is that people are supporting you. One of my favorite authors let us know that this is happening. I didn’t know of you or your books prior today, however, I will be buying them now!

  89. Oh no Kristy this is horrible. I fit one hate bullies and think si little of them. I love your characters and Crashed was amazing. Congrats on a job well done. Be safe around these haters. Race you xxx

  90. this is disrespectful and disgusting and we do not condone it at Two ordinary anything discusting thing we come across will be reported and taken down.

  91. Bloody unfair! I have shared this on my pages! hope it helps!

  92. This makes me so sad to see that a few bad apples are ruining what should be a happy time in your life. I’m truly disheartened by this sad news that a few individuals are attacking you, your book, and your family! This behavior is not acceptable, and I hope you know that there are a legion of fans (and non fans) who want to stand beside you to give you strength to push through this difficult time in your life. If there is anything that we can do to help, please let us know.

  93. I support you Kristy Bromberg 100% and hope this blows over soon and you can return to FB/Twitter/etc. XOXO

    Loving Fan & Reader of your books

  94. I wish you the best, you are awesome and the haters that do this should be banned from fb and twitter.

  95. I’m so sorry to hear that you are being harassed and bullied by these people. I hope that you come back to Facebook soon and I intend to like your page. Keep your head up!!! All the love from your fans will out weigh the hate and the support for you will be through the roof.

    Thank you for your books.

    Kayla

  96. So sorry, you have had some vile comments, x

  97. The anonymity that the internet provides brings out the worst in people.
    I am sorry this is happening to you.

  98. Thank you for reaching out to your true fans and being honest with what is going on. I am sorry that your release day was ruined by childish people! Loved the book! I am on a bit of a book hangover! Think I will wait a few days and re-read all 3 books in order! 🙂

  99. Kristy,

    I am so sorry that a few thugs are trying to ruin your book release. It is very sad that the actions of a few are hurting the majority in keeping you away from your true fans – even if only for a little while.

    Please know that we support you and love your books. Please keep your head up and know that “this to shall pass”.

    Yours,

    Cydni Thebert ~ new and faithful fan

  100. Your true readers/fans have your back….Take care of you!…We’ll be here.

  101. We <3 u Kristy!! U have our support!

  102. Amazing that grown adults would stoop so low! I’m so sorry that you are having to go through this at such an important time in your career.

  103. O.M.G this is disgusting. I really hope u get it sorted and everything goes well and smoothly for you book releas. I dnt know how ppl can be so cruel to Author’s and all there hard work. I haven’t read ur books yet but heard fantastic things about them and can’t wait to read them. Good luck with everything 🙂

  104. I’m a fan and wanted to say how much I respect you. You are living your dream and often, there’s some cloud to the silver lining. But, there’s so much sunshine too. Keep living your dream, keep writing, keep loving your family and hopefully those crazies will go away.

  105. You have a lot of supportive fans. I am truly sorry that some idiot would do this to you and your family. It is unforgiveable. Please know that you have the support of many and don’t let the few hold you back. Keep writing these great stories and we will keep buying them. Take care and don’t let the bastards get you down.

  106. I am so sorry you are goitng through this. Annonimity makes people brave. I hope everything works out soon

  107. I just bought all 3 of your books. I think this is just cruel and unjust what these people are doing. I am reporting their page and every comment they are making.

  108. Sorry you have been targeted by ignorant bullies. Purchased Crashed today in support of you, look forward to enjoying your story.

  109. K, I am so sorry to hear about this. Your fans and colleagues know not to buy into this kind of bullying and slander. Keep your head up, beautiful!

  110. Kristy, this is horrible that this has happened. Sending you lots of love and know that we will support you every way we can! Love your books and will support you always!

  111. Kristy, I can’t even imagine what you must be having to deal with at the moment. This is a time where you should be celebrating your success and your only worry should be about how to handle all your crazy fans that are going to be sending you messages about how much they love you.

    I’ve seen the post on the wall where this came from and am sickened by the route these people have taken. As a reader and as person, you have my full support.

    Spend this time enjoying the success you reached with this series and dealing with this matter with the support of your family and friends. Your fans will continue to spread the word about this fantastic series and ensure that the focus is drawn to your talent and not the ridiculous behavior of people that are exploiting a tragic event for whatever secret thrill they get out of it.

    We race you, woman!

  112. Showing my support Kristy, and I’m sure your readers will support you through it all. Much love! xx

  113. I’m so sorry that this has happened to you . You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers and shame on those bullies

  114. So very sorry about all of this NONSENSE! I am getting ready to start reading Crashed! Hopefully there are MORE loyal fans them asinine people out here in the cyber world. Just know that your TRUE fans RACE YOU with ALL our hearts!

  115. Please know Kate that you have my 100% support. I will do whatever I can to help. Maybe you could just make a private page and we could gather and share from there? This is horrible and total Bullshit…So sorry this is happening to you.

  116. I am so sorry to hear that this is happening. No one deserves to be harassed and bullied.

    I loved Fueled and Driven. I am hoping to read Crashed soon.

    *hugs* stay strong!

  117. We bloggers have your back! Don’t worry, you have more supporters than detractors.

  118. Please know that your readers are behind you 100% and support all that you do as an author <3

  119. I will continue to support you! And take a stand against cyber-bully’s!

  120. I can’t believe this is happening. You have the FB world of indie supporters and bloggers here for you and we support you. YOU are not the cause for what has happened. They are trying to drag you down for something that you have NOT done. I am so sorry to hear this and I hope it all works out in the long run. YOU don’t deserve to brought through the mud for something YOU didnt do.

  121. Oh I’m so sorry this is happening. It is just so sad and sickening. Stay strong.

  122. I freaking love you and support you!! I am sorry this happened to you and i stand behind you 100 % i think your an amazing author and woman… I RACE YOU KRISTY <3

  123. Please don’t be discouraged by this foolishness. You just released the perfect ending to a wonderful series. Celebrate your success!!!

  124. Dear Kristy,

    I am so very sorry that on a day off triumph, and celebration you should suffer at the hands of a few bullies (cowards)
    Please know that I have loved your books and find you to be a wonderful author and just as wonderful person

  127. I’m on a street team for another author and she is also being trashed and bullied by revolting trolls. It’s shameful and we all feel your pain and support you. I’m thrilled to be reading Crashed…been waiting with bated breath like many of your fans and so far it’s fab! Hope you get all this sorted and behind you soon…..good luck and wishing you much deserved success. And most importantly THANK YOU for Colton…omg! Lol….chin up love your fans far outweigh those other idiots xxx

  132. I’m so sorry this is happening to you Kristy. Wth is wrong w/people?? The only answer I have is Schadenfreude. Envy and the spreading of maliciousness and misery are a terrible byproduct of social media lately.

    Keep your head up and your chin firm. Your true supporters will never abandon you.

    XOXO,

    Maria

  133. So sorry you are having to deal with this…keep your head up.

  134. So sorry this is happening to you. I had pre purchased the new book, so it is ready to read. Going to take a couple days to read the first books again before i read it. I know i had a few friends locally who had pre ordered, so know that these few shall fail. Your books rock. Kim

  135. I can’t believe some people out there! I hope you have a very successful release day!

  136. This is absolutely horrible! You should not have to deal with this! I support you! Its a shame that so many have no lives and have the time to put in so much effort to slander someone… Especially someone they don’t even know!

  137. Stay Strong…God Bless… 🙂

  138. Some people are just not happy unless they are stirring the pot, and that is terrible. I know it doesn’t help now, but they WILL get their judgement day someday. Stay strong and know that you are supported by most!!

  139. Haven’t read your books yet, but I’m glad you aren’t going to let these bullies spoil your livelihood. I really hope karma finds them. Congratulations on your new release!

  140. You will always have my supoort! I am 1000% against bullying and I can’t believe it has happened (and to this extent) to you.. Just know you have a whole lot of people who are behind you and who are supporting you through this.

  141. This is an awful thing to do to someone, hope everything gets worked out ok for you

  142. Well said!!!

  143. I have enjoyed being a part of your Facebook page. I am saddened that there are people that can be so cruel. I have enjoyed reading Driven, fueled and now Crashed. This is the first series of books that I have recommended to all the ladies I work with. They are now also followers of yours. Keep writing. You are amazing!

  144. I am so very sorry this is happening to you. There are plenty of us willing to help you in any way we can. Please if I or any of my friends can help in any way just let me know. No one should have to deal with this type of behavior. Praying for you. Hugs coming your way!!!

  145. You have my support! Whatever I can do, please let me know!

  146. Absolutely terrible! These people should be ashamed of themselves!

    I finished Crashed today with many emotions. This series was amazing and has become my number one! Thank you I look forward to many more!

  147. It’s incredible what lengths people go to to bully someone. I’m sorry this is happening to you and I had no idea. Regardless of who you are as a person, you should be respected and scrutinized through your books, not your personal life. Let me say that I am ecstatic that I finally have Colton (Crashed) in my hands (Kindle) – though I’ll have to wait to read the trilogy I’m currently on to get to it.

  148. So sorry you are having problems. I love your books and am heading over to amazon to one- click right now.

  149. unbelievable will miss your comments hope you get it sorted out soon XXX

  150. I wanted to say I love your books and of course Colton! Whoever is doing this needs help. Keep your head high. No one deserves this treatment. You’re awesome!

  151. Bless you and your family, I’m willing it’s the same group of people who did the same to another author friend of mine and she took her facebook page and twitter down as well.

    Keep fighting the good fight. We’re behind you.

  152. Hang in there woman! You know your talent and we love your books!

  153. congratulations on your release of Crashed. I found Fueled on my daughter’s Nook and she had to pry it out of my hands. Don’t let the stupid playground bully games of a few ruin the moment.

  154. you floored me literally with Crashed, so beautifully written & on what should be a flawless day for you has been soured by a bunch of assholes!!! Makes me furious, but, rest assured your sincere fans are thinking of you!! Nevertheless, keep strong & keep writing – talent like yours is rare! Adored adored adored your entire trilogy – thank you xxxxxxxxx

  155. This is a shame. I don’t understand why people would step to this level. Let me guess these are the same people that jump up and down when someone bullies a kid, but can see they are doing the same thing to some one when they behave this way. I wish you luck.

  156. Kristy,
    I am so sorry that you have to go through all of the garbage these people are spouting. No one should have to put up with that kind of invasion into your life. Know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of your fans. Social media is indeed a powerful tool, but in the hands of zealots it is equally destructive. Fight them! Do not let them win. Hugs to you and yours at this difficult time.

  157. Not sure what’s going on but we’re behind you.

  158. I’m so sorry that you are having to go through this!

  159. I just bought all 3 of your books. I have heard nothing but good about them. I hope this gets resolved real soon for you and your family

  160. Kristy, just finished Crashed…. OMG, amazing! I’ve never felt so much before while reading a book! Thank you! What a wonderful author and person you are. I have enjoyed this series and the VP Pit crew. Sorry you have to go through any drama at all for simply writing an amazing series and bringing a whole group of women together. Bless you!

  161. I am so sorry that your reputation and your book is being tainted the way they are. The worst part is what you and your family are going through here. My heart goes out to you and your family. There is a bright side here though. From what I see here on Amazon and Facebook, you have so many supporters standing up for you. People who believe in you and your talent. That makes you a very lucky person to have so many people hold you in such high esteem. I have not read your books yet, so I didn’t feel good about making any comments on Amazon, but I will definitely be checking them out now. Anyways, I just wanted to show you support and let you know that its not only are your fans and fellow authors and bloggers that are outraged. I truly hope you seek some legal counsel here because this will probably not end with you. These hateful people will move on to others in the author community. God bless you and your family. I’m off to Amazon to check out Driven. 😉 Keep your head up!

  162. I think what is happening is terrible, I am a mum of a teenager, I’m a wife to a husband that is never home, I work full time in a not so great job and battled cancer for 3 year’s, it’s books like yours that take my mind off my worries, and they take me to a happy place, please do not let small minded people put you down, please keep writing as you make so many people in my situation a great deal happier, stay strong you have my love and support xxx

  163. You know, I usually try and stay out of all of this stuff but this kind of thing really bothers me. To me, the world of literature should be a group meeting place where everyone gets along and supports each other, especially in the indie universe. It’s important to have that supports. Things like this make me really upset with where humanity is going. It’s catty and completely necessary. I just want you to know that I support you as an another not wanting to have to deal with people that have nothing better to do than drag you down. Keep your chin up.

  164. Haven’t read the series yet, but don’t let these asses take away from your happiness as an author. Keep up the fantastic job on what I hear is a fantastic series 🙂 (the first 2 are on my kindle, just need to find time to read them 🙂 )

  165. We love you K. Bromberg and always know we support you! Cyber Bullying is NEVER acceptable! So we stand proud and united with you all the way!

  166. Hi Kristy,

    I think it’s horrible that this is happening to you, and possible other authors.
    I’ll be honest – I haven’t read your books *yet*. Driven was on my to-buy list, and I’ve only just downloaded it but haven’t had a chance to read it yet. Once i finish my current book, I will be reading Driven!

    While I think everyone is entitled to their opinion on whether they like and enjoy a book or not, they should not make it personal and attack an author or reader for their opinions, and especially not involve family or friends.
    As you said, all it takes is one to ruin it for everyone.

    I am looking forward to readying this series, and I hope these people’s comment don’t get you down.

    Thanks,

    Kyles

  167. im so sorry this is happening some people really need to find something better to do with their time. so we can enjoy the release with it. it should be a happy time not a time for you to have to deal with this. I really hope there is something you can do to stop them on fb cant you block them or report them. I would really like to see you back on fb I was enjoying the release and all your posts.

  168. Oh my gosh, this is just awful. They are taking bullying to another level, by messaging readers and bringing your family into this. I can believe that some people get so much enjoyment out of bullying others. Like what has this world come to?

    Sorry that you are having to endure this.

  169. I will not ever understand why people Hart to make other people feel bad to make themselves feel better. If they don’t like your books don’t read then and stay off your webpage to for that matter. I an so sorry you are going through this. You and your family keep your head up you are a great writer and your fans will always be there for you.

  170. How sad! I’m sorry you and your family are having to deal with this right now. This should be a time of celebration, not putting up with crap! I hope everything sorts itself out, and you have a successful release. I have yet to read any of your books, but I support you anyway. No one should ever have to deal with this.

  171. I am sorry to here about this and I pray that these people find better things to do with their lives then to deliberately ruin other people’s lives.

    My thoughts are with you and your family. I haven’t had the pleasure yet of reading your work but will. Authors have to support one another. God Bless you.

    With Love,

    Kim B. xoxo <3

  172. I am so sorry that this is happening to you, hun!
    It’s very sad that there are people out there that continue with childish recess banter and bullying.

    Stay strong! Don’t let them hold you down, and I hope this gets sorted soon.
    No one deserves to be bullied, it’s and ugly word for an ugly action.

    Much <3 V.L. Xxx

  173. Kristy, I just read what another author had posted and found out what these people are doing to you. I’m so sorry that you’re having to deal with this. Hang in there and remember that what goes around comes around! I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  174. I got your back!!

  175. I have just bought your book and am really looking forward to reading it and lets hope the person who is being nasty gets their fingers burned, good luck with this

  176. I’m sorry for this trouble you are going through. I don’t know what kind of group this is, but they are beyond out of line and criminal for bullying and involving your family. I enjoy your work, and I wish you nothing but the best and a resolution to this as quickly as possible. Best regards!

  177. This is crazy.Hang in there Kristy and hope this is resolved. Loved Crashed hard it was good

  178. Race u race u race u really really race u lol, chin up doll & until we meet in ure next fantabulous book know that yep uve guessed it we race u

  179. I didn’t see the posts of these pathetic people. But I can honestly say this. Whatever they said wouldn’t have made me feel differently about this author and her books. It is a sad day when a person has to try and spoil the success of another. You are truly a brilliant author. Don’t let the negativity and ugliness ruin what you are so blessed to have created. Good luck.

  180. I really, really don’t understand the mentality of people and its not as if the world is a good place at the moment? I don’t know you but I just wanted to say how sorry I am to hear what is going on. We all have our opinions, we all have our prejudices – we are human after all BUT there are time and places to debate these and this is not the place to do it. Be strong and don’t let the Bastards grind you down.

  181. ps remember the words you have just written 🙂

  182. I can’t understand how anyone could be this cruel. My support is behind you 100%. XOXO

  183. I support you Kristy.

  184. I am saddened to hear this is happening to you. I am completely disgusted in my fellow man, the they would take pride in hurting , defaming, or threatening another human being! How completely childish!
    I hope this does not stop you from pursuing your dream and continuing to write what you love! Please..please..do not let these hate mongers win!
    Best wishes! 🙂 <3

  185. It so sad that there are mean people in this world that get off on hurting others for no apparent reason than to be an asshole. If someone doesn’t like a song, TV show, book, etc., just turn the music off, change the channel, etc. Everyone has an opinion and it’s okay to share that opinion but don’t be mean about it. You don’t have the right to bully people into taking your side. You are all grown-ups so start acting like it.!

  186. OMG!!! So sad to hear that you have to go thru this. You are an amazing writer. I have completely fallen in love with your books. So in love with Colton and Rylee. I cannot wait for your next book/series to come out. Keep up the amazing work!!

  187. I am so very sorry this happened to you. My thoughts are with you, I wish you a fantastic release as well as hope you are able to come back to social media to promote your work again soon. In the meantime I would like to promote your work through my facebook, twitter and website to help out.
    Good luck

  188. I am outraged at the treatment you are receiving. Your personal life has no bearing on your books and is no one’s business. I have read Driven and Fueled and am currently 30% into reading Crashed – which by the way is freaking fantabulous!! You are a truly gifted writer. Don’t let anyone or anything bring you down! Thinking of you and your family during this very difficult time. Karma is a bitch – your fans are your fans and everyone is standing by you on Facebook!

  189. The book is amazing. The series is awesome. Dont stress. Let it speak for itself. There have been a few movies or books that have AFFECTED me. Im just not that type of person. But, your books.. the Driven series… has done just that. I was rocked by them. Emotionally draining! LOL. I have lost sleep! Loved it.

    Stand up. Dont let this shake you. You’ve got talent. Be proud of it.

  190. Not sure if my first comment disappeared, but I just wanted to express my support, say I’m sorry you’re going through this. I enjoy your work, though I haven’t had a chance to start “Crashed” yet. These people are beyond wrong and out of line and I wish you the best and a resolution to this that is as swift as possible. Best regards.

  191. That’s shocking!!! well i will buy your book & share it!!

  192. What is all this about?? I have read the first two books and absolutly loved them! Crashed is next and frankly whatever this is all this bad publicity should make everyone want to read it all the more! Great books and please don’t stop because of a few haters!

  193. This is the most outrageous thing I have ever heard!!!!! Some people are just so ugly inside that they need to hurt others to feel human. If there is anything I can do to help you please let me know. I am not very computer literate but I would do what I can. I love your books and am currently reading Crashed, so far I love it!!! Don’t let some horrible person get you down, chin up and all that. You have thousands of dedicated fans who love you and your writing and we won’t turn our back on you!!!!

  194. I just want to say that I support you, and I hate that this is happening to you. Please, don’t quit on us, you are an awesome writer and are deeply loved. Don’t let the few haters take away from the beauty of the artist of the written word that you are, babe!! Don’t forget how very much you are adored by many, many others. I stand behind you, and there are more of us, than there ever will be of them.

    ~Sadie

  195. I gave you a very positive review on Amazon this morning. Word is getting out that this is a personal vendetta and people are backing you wholeheartedly. Good luck in containing this nonsense and stay strong. You are an excellent writer.

  196. I am so sorry to hear this! Cyber bully jealousy — who knew adults could be so “childish”. I miss your posts, but I am loving the book and I don’t care who knows!

    Continued success to you and congratulations for a truly wonderful series!

    Don’t let the bullies deter you from enjoying your accomplishment!

  197. Kristy, I could not be more shattered to hear of this. You have such a gift for writing and have provided so many of us with beautiful gifts of escape through Rylee and Colton’s love story. You and your family are in my thoughts, and I hope this disgusting attack fuels you in your future endeavors, rather than deter you. What an inspiration you are to so very many. God bless you!

  198. I can understand on what you and your family are feeling right now. To me those haters are just a bunch of scheise who can’t handle the success of your books.

  199. I am so sorry that some people in this world have to act like 5 year olds who got their toy taken away. I don’t know why you are being bullied, and I don’t care. It is unacceptable for any reason. Hugs and love for you and your family!

  200. K, You have my support. Unfortunately you are not the only auhor being subject to bullying and sabotage of their works and I’m in full support of your books and you as an author.

    Colton will always be one of my FAVORITE book boyfriends. Thank you for sharing his and Rylee’s story with us.

  201. I’m sorry to read that you’re going through this nonsense right now when it should be more of a time to celebrate the release of your VERY BEST BOOK. I’m not even done reading it but must tell you it IS FU#%!@& WONDERFUL!! I RACE this story so much. Thank you for taking the time from your life to give all of us (book addicts) a fantastic read. I’m going to need a drink to cure the hangover I know I’m going to have after reading this. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!

  202. wow…really?? well that explains why I can’t find you…don’t let stupid idiots ruin your good fortune because I want to tell you something…I have never liked reading…I read driven and fueled and was hooked on your writing. While I was waiting for Crashed…I read a few other authors…the books were ok but when I picked up Crashed finally…I see why I couldn’t put it down. Your style of writing is just AWESOME!!! keep up the good work and now we need Becks story 🙂

  203. What is wrong with people. There is another author that is being bullied to. She put on facebook today that she has been bullied and i think they involved her family to. Sorry to hear this. I will being praying that this stops soon. Why are they doing this?

  204. I just read Driven, now I’m reading Fueled…and I’m blown away, great story…so..if anything at least you have earned a new fan from this debacle!

  205. Hi,

    I’m sorry to hear that you you are harrassed. I have to say that I don’t understand behaviour like this.

    I really enjoyed your books, have been really looking forward to Crashed and just finished it.

    Absolutely loved it.

    Hope your publish a new book soon.

    Best
    Cosima

  206. I was blown away by your Driven Trilogy and it is certainly one of my two favourite stories of all time (the other being This Man). Your an amazing author and I am quite certain there are a lot of gutted readers out there who have now finished Crashed. Many poor husbands in the world now inferior to the perfect Colton! I Cant wait to read your future books.. Good Luck, Andrea x

  207. Ok people suck!! Your real fans have your back as you can see with the mass amount of support shown on this page alone… YOUR’RE freaking awesome….

  208. What is wrong with people. I so annoyed with all the author bashing lately. You don’t like someone’s books, son’t read them for goodness sakes….I for one love this series and I support you 100% Hang in there!

  209. I have just finished crashed. I was blowen away by the book.Truely amazing.Rylee & Colton are my kind of lover’s and friends I don’t think you could have done A better job of putting these two together from book 1 to book 3.Truely wonderful.FROM A. TO THE MOTHERFUCKING Z.

  210. Wanted to add my support to you. Amazing series keep up the good work!

  211. So sorry u r having to go thru this!! I loved the Driven series!!

    Keep writing K your fans love and respect u!!! And we cant wait to read your next book!!!

  212. Hi Kristy. First of all I would like to congratulate you on CRASH!! It is a very beautiful creation by a very blessed and talented writer. As for those who are doing these things to you just pray for them because them doing these “inhumane” actions reflect their insecurities. You are a great person and please do not stoop down to their level.

    Now, back to CRASH, I love how you allowed us to get in Rylee’s and Colton’s mind and heart. Their love is so great that this helped them to be who they are 10 years after.

    I am looking forward to your next project. Just hang on to God. He is good all the time.

  213. Hi from Brazil!! I’m sorry to hear this. I loved Driven Trilogy. Congrats. I hope read it in portuguese some day.
