Author Who Allegedly Stalked Goodreads Commenter To Publish New Book

In 2014, author Kathleen Hale wrote an essay for The Guardian about her fixation on a blogger who gave her YA novel a bad review on Goodreads. Hale repeatedly checked the blogger's social media accounts, paid for an internet background check, called them at home, drove to their address, and left a book at their doorstep.

Some people praised the essay for its honest, raw depiction of an author's obsession. Others called it outright stalking.

Now, Kathleen Hale will publish a collection of essays called Kathleen Hale Is A Crazy Stalker. Yes, that is the actual title. It is part of a two-book deal.
