Toxic People...Like The Lousy Author

Toxic Love by J Asheley Brown is a collection of flash fiction stories that serve no real purpose other than to exploit victims. "Read these stories and get the conversation started about abuse in all of its destructive forms. You just might be able to reach a life and save it." What a damn joke. Having characters get beaten or raped, or find out their significant others are cheating is simply not good enough if the the author isn't going to bother including any real drama or suspense. Violence for the sake of violence is not story-telling. Flash fiction doesn't mean skipping any attempt at writing with substance.

As always,
