Now Jaid Black's Facebook page is down/deleted, possibly after an inflammatory final post? Don't suppose anyone's seen screencaps...?
I have the text of that post.
There were two that I saw. One I didn't screencap, and it was kind of a nasty jab at the Ann Jacobs counterclaim.
The second one was far longer, full of her various regrets about romance and publishing. It opens:
It's unfortunate that only hindsight is 20/20. Why can't foresight work that way? I regret the day I read my first romance novel, but I especially regret the day I published my first book. It was genuinely the biggest mistake of my life.
I will miss all of you I regularly interact with... And I genuinely mean that. It's just time for me to do a Kenny Rogers and "know when to walk away, know when to run."
Take care of yourselves. Hopefully we'll meet again. xx
Several of us felt it could be interpreted as a suicide note. I genuinely hope it is not.
I've considered posting it, but that feels wrong to do.
