So it took us a little bit of time to post on Monday and then on Tuesday because while it was Lana’s day to post she was sort of upset. And the reason she was upset was simple.
On Monday morning, even though we were all hung over, we got this message from someone who visited the store I guess, took a look at the products and read our blog and I guess was on my email list. I dunno why they joined or stayed in the first place. But the text of the message they sent was this:
“You ladies don’t even deserve to be called ladies. Sluts is too good a word for you. Honestly, have you no shame? Does your whore friend Lana have no shame? You’re celebrating the fact that you live a completely debauched life and what your peddling reflects that. You’re a disgrace and an embarrassment to your parents. I can’t believe that you think of yourselves as anything more than lowly, common, whores. You seem to be of the illusion that you provide some sort of sacred service. Well I have news for you. When people realize that all you produce are trash no one will come to your store ever again to buy anything from you. I wouldn’t want to be in the same room as you and your filthy friends. Go ahead and have your fun, just know that you’re wallowing like pigs in mud.”
So Lana was really upset. And Paige and Daphne and I spent the day finding this woman. I’m not gonna out her or anything because I’m gonna be the better person. That’s not what we do. But we did ban her from the store through something Paige did (way more technical savvy than I have) and we made sure she’d never be able to join Dirty Lil’ Angels and she would never be on our email lists. It’s the first time we’ve had to do that because in the past we’ve always wanted people to come to the store but this was just something else.
I think what the problem was is that Lana actually let loose and is having fun with Natalie here. And she’s not used to people being mean to her. I mean for me, I’m from NYC. I used to work in cutthroat environments. And people have sent me hate mail as an author A LOT. But this isn’t the first time for Lana. And I feel so bad for her.
So we’re done being coy and bashful or whatever. If people have a problem with us then you know we’ve dealt with this as a group before. They can just go away. But if they wanna be mean about it, then guess what, I’m gonna block them from ever coming here again. Natalie said something key. She said this woman or man or whatever probably wanted to read the things we have but felt guilty inside and was taking it out on us. I dunno if that’s it but I’m not having that. The well being of my angels, both authors and readers is the most important thing.
Anyways, so that was with the radio silence. We’re back now. And in honor of this woman, we’ve taken all our filthy fantasies and put them in one big boxed set. Also Daphne released Max Bid 7! So…she can take that lol. Because we’re not stopping!
