I've received a response from the Goodreads team regarding the ransom scam today. Since my post about the scam has been getting a lot of traction, I believe that it will be fair to share this update.
A number of authors are being attacked by scammers who first post multiple fake 1-star reviews and ratings on Goodreads and then demand ransom to take them down.
I’ve loved reading since I was a child. I took a book with me everywhere I went, and whenever I finished one, I immediately started a new one.
