ah, the joys of rumors.... *snarl*

Edited to add: The post has since been removed, so if you click on the link, you won't see anything....

I stumbled across this post on the LiveJournal of agt_spooky, a devoted Supernatural fan who hated Nevermore and hates me. And that's fine -- I'm not going to please everyone, and as a semi-public figure, I'm open to this sort of thing. Besides, I was a book reviewer for too long (and wrote too many negative reviews) to get all persnickety when someone does the same for me.

However, there was one thing in the comments that sent me through the roof with anger. I want to nip this in the bud right now, because if this story is spreading around Supernatural fandom, it needs to stop.

Quoth adelheide:
His ex-wife, also an author, loves SN and desperately wanted to write a novel, but of course, good ol' Keith made sure to poison those waters and nab the deal for himself.

This is categorically untrue, and resembles reality in only one way: marinarusalka does indeed love Supernatural. But I did nothing of the sort, and Marina actually was a beta reader on both Nevermore and Bone Key. I don't care what folks think of me, but Marina doesn't deserve that type of slander.

We both replied to the post in question pointing out it's untrue-ness, but I wanted to clarify that this was total bullshit here, as well, in case this story has any kind of traction.

(Someone else in the thread talks about how my X-Files novels sucked, too, which is a neat trick, considering I've never written one....)
