    . . . Or the voices inside her head are just telling her that.

    • I mean, this is either true or she's suffering paranoid delusions? And is her husband banging the evil assistant? IDEK.
      It’s just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

      • My first instict was to believe her but of course she could be crazy.

        • My first instinct was to think “no way”. It’s fascinating either way.

          • Welp, she's filed a lawsuit against him (and his two! co-conspirators) so I guess it's up to a judge to decide now.

            • I don't know what outcome I'm hoping for more: that she's cray enough to believe that this is happening and so confident that she'd share all the deets with her readers OR that her husband has actually tried to POISON her OMG. Either way, though, he's totally banging that assistant, right?

              • Three things:
                1. Kerrie
                2. Ann
                3. Plump

                I can't.

                • The official legal thingy filed by Plaintiff Kenyon:

                  I'm reading this like:









                  But it's crazy long and crazy detailed and maybe just plain crazy which perhaps I shouldn't say? I'm 50 pages into a 90 page doc and I am seriously not sure I can read the whole thing.


                  So far, my fave bit is where her husband tried to sabotage her writing career by: "hiding her laptop, shrinking her clothes so they wouldn't fit properly, and placing a large flower arrangement near her computer where cats would upset it onto her work."


                  A fool proof plan!










                  Her husband is basically this guy (according to her):

                  • Yeah, the flower thing sounds totally crazy.

                    • WaPo weighs in:


                      https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...=.bdbd6ee6bccb


                      Sherrilyn Kenyon, the best-selling author of the Dark-Hunter series, began writing as a child to survive her own bleak circumstances — poverty and neglect, punctuated by the shouts of her parents. “I’m gonna skin you alive the minute you fall asleep!” she once heard her mother bellow at her father.


                      “These astonishing and unsubstantiated allegations may stand as her best fantasy creation yet,” said Lawrence Kenyon, whose career as a lawyer has included a stint with a local office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He said the prolific author, who has written under numerous pseudonyms, concocted the story to outmaneuver him in ongoing divorce proceedings.

                      In her lawsuit, the novelist says it was only after her husband had filed for divorce last year that she had her blood, nails and hair examined for toxins. It became clear to her, according to the complaint, that the longer her husband “was away from home,” the more her health improved.

                      The test allegedly uncovered high levels of lithium, tin, barium, platinum and thorium. The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. But Kelly Johnson-Arbor, a medical toxicologist at the National Capital Poison Center, told The Washington Post that the possibility of external contamination raises questions about the effectiveness of hair testing, and that many of the metals apparently discovered “are not commonly associated with significant toxicity in humans.”






                      Cassie Clare responds to WaPo's mention of the lawsuit: http://cassandraclare.tumblr.com/pos...o-revisit-this


                      In the end, in these situations, you settle a lawsuit because being sued is hellish. Yes, it is expensive, but it is also grinding and miserable. Every day you are exposed to new shocks and new unpleasantness. There were many times I considered committing suicide because I was so deeply sunk into despair at the idea that someone I did not know and had never met was determined to destroy my life, and to somehow destroy or take from me all the work I had done for ten years — everything that mattered to me, everything I had worked on so hard. I never understood why. I still don’t. For years I barely slept, couldn’t write Chain of Gold, spent nights shaking and vomiting and crying. had thought trial might give me some answers to what what happening, but I also knew it meant the case could drag on for yet more years.

                      Together with my publisher, we settled with Kenyon, but only the trademark part of the suit. That was all that was left. The copyright part of the suit was indeed dropped in May, 2016. Had it not been I would never, ever have settled. Which is something I would have told you, Washington Post, had you needed clarification.


                      SO MUCH DRAMA IN PUBLISHING OMB.

                      • Ugh, the Scribd link is dead. Sad!

                        But now I think SK is maybe just super intensely paranoid? I know lots of women with migraines, headaches, etc., that have magically gone away when they got rid of their shitty relationship! LOL.

                        That said, Cassie Clare is a RENOWNED PLAGIARIST FROM WAY BACK. So I'm glad she settled and gave SK a kickback. She likely deserved it.

                        • Can someone briefly explain the Kenyon/Clare beef? I know who Clare is, but I've never heard of Kenyon.

                          Nevermind, Google told me.
