A few days ago, somebody calling him/herself “Observor” jumped on first one, then two of my blogs to defend Tabetha. Specifically, to defend Eric after he got called out for never having served in the Marines as a sniper on deployment, as he claims.
When the spelling error in the name got pointed out, s/he claimed the name Mr. Shadow. Come to find out, s/he was claiming to be Draven, a male stripper who works in Texas.
No I am not with the company but I do know a lot about the people involved. I know the last two authors that left willing. She did not charge either one of them to walk. You see the problem I am having with this.
She is disputing you as we speak doing things like this. Letting people go without fees, no payments upfront, paying royalties out. I know this because of Anna Lovelace and the others I have spoke with. Even her author that edits has received royalties. She is a poet, author, and editor. Misty Burke is a romance author.
As for TJ and her writing. I love most of her stuff. I am not much into erotica but her poetry collection was outstanding and her series has really grown. Some of her authors need growth but most are just starting out.
I am not taking up for anyone but making public posts and her defying your every move makes you look bad. She is proving you wrong at every turn. I googled and did my research as the other blog I ran across suggested. I asked questions. What I found was a bit different.
All I am saying is maybe somewhere someone got information wrong. Someone led you wrong. Or maybe she burned people in the past. I wasn’t there.
She can register her business anyway she likes. Its her business and that isn’t illegal. Maybe she did it that way to keep you out of her business. Maybe sge did it to keep her life private. I don’t know the answer. I am saying what I might do.
The more you refuse to answer questions or show proof the more you look like a fool. Show your documents of where you found Eric’s non service records. Show your proof of Tabethas alter egos. Who are they and show proof of who and how you know.
If she is proving you wrong on a daily basis then do the same. Show us. She is doing her part and showing everyone you are the liar here. Maybe you need to quit talking and do the same.
Actions speak louder than words.
I don’t pick sides. I pick the truth. She may get pissed at me but who really cares. She may get pissed I don’t care for the first couple books in her series. I just do not care.
Fact is I asked a question and you say you do not have to give the answer. Everyone knows who Tab writes under. Everyone who is important. Maybe she just wants to take you for a ride?
If I know Tab, and I have known her for awhile then that sounds like her.
How do I know her? I am a dancer/writer. I know a lot about the industry. Been around the block myself. I have been scammed all different ways and being a dancer I have worked angles too.
We don’t always see eye to eye and after seeing all this on several facebook pages I thought I would check it out.
No she didn’t put me up to it. No I didn’t ask permission. I am a grown man with my own life.
I just wanted to see for myself if the old woman that got called a cu- I believe I will be nice. Show the manners my mom gave me. I wanted to see if you lived up to your rep.
You do. You danced around until you pulled out crap that means nothing. I could be rude or an ass but I am really watching myself.
Again I think both sides should get on with whatever they need to do. Tab has kept her end. Hasn’t posted anything. Hasn’t said a word.
But she is making good on proving you wrong. I do know that.
I also know a lot about the authors. Who is who. Who needs some work. Again I wasn’t around so I do not know the past.I know what is the here and now.
But hey if you are ever in Dallas come stick a dollar in me I’ll show what its like to be in the shadows with me. Haha
Where do I work? Oh baby you want to come see me take it off? I work at a strip o gram service in San Antonio, Austin La Bare, and Dallas La Bare. Lap dances are 20. Wanna go for a spin in the corner? Haha
I do imagine you think it may be far fetched for me to come to her aid. Not really doing that. I am the public eye. The public eye has inquiring questions.
Is it against the law for me to have questions that you still refuse to answer.I see now why Eric called you a cunt.
My boss was Russian Military. He has a certain respect for Eric that only brother in arms have all that crap.
See there is such a thing as bouncing an IP address. But you being the great and powerful oz should know that.
Oh and that blog you posted is bullshit. Doesn’t exist. Typed it in myself.
You find me funny. Too bad most women find me too fucking sexy. I guess its yoyr loss grandma.
I am a cool dude until you pass judgement and want to laugh at me. I probably won’t be the only dancer coming on board.
A few others might make an appearance. I sent out the bat signal so to speak.
But hey a tip is a tip. I’ll give anyone a spin that needs one. I think you need one.
I’ll be sure next time I stop by to write approriately. As if I’m writing my next book. Cause that nazi stick is so far in your ass I do believe it will need to be surgically removed.
Again as you say my dear lepp put up or shut up. Eric has no record prove it. Oh wait you can’t because you don’t have jack shit.
Btw my manners well my mom did say treat others the way the treat you. You wanna laugh. Fine. I can be a total dick.
He didn’t realize that he needed to write the way he does in his books?
Freudian slip much?
True to form, when caught up in a slip and faced with irrefutable facts, s/he reverted to type and started to spew vulgarities.
Why the fuck should she have to sue you. Your the fucking bitch that points fingers saying you have this evidence and that. Wtf?
You talk a big fucking game but when it comes down to it you can’t provide not a goddamn thing.
Eric is a hot head but my boss knows him. And Alex has said himself contact him. You want to know the real deal. Email him email@example.com hes old school. No facebook just email.
You want a scoop for your next story there you go. Other than what everyone already knows and the damn bullshit you wont answer I would love to hear about all these alts.
And I will be sure to get with someone Tab knows and have a pic sent to your facebook. So you know what your missing granny
They dont call me shadow man for nothing granny.
Why dont you ask La Bare groupies about me? Oh and please email boss man. He is looking forward to talking to you.
Or hey you can fucking wait til Tab writes her book about her 10yrs there. But Alex is military and you may find what he says interesting.
Now if you excuse me I need to find a tool. You know one that will remove that nazi stick from your tight ass.
Remember I tried playing nice but you bitches didnt want it.
And my real name is Antonio. Not goddamn doug stupid ass. Draven is a fucking stage name. But most of you lick pussy at least we have that in common.
Pussy does a mutha fuckas body good.
Those last two comments were almost verbatim to comments she posted on somebody else’s blog, but either she’s too stupid to realize that people can pick up on those tells, or she thinks we’re too stupid to put it together.
That was it for the “Tough guy Eric” blog. S/he showed up next on the “Picked or red?” blog, in which I challenged Tabetha to provide me with the contact information for her attorney. Then, I said, I’d provide all the proof that I have that Eric never served as a sniper in the Marines, and that his tough buy act is just to bully authors that try to leave that sham publishing company, and to threaten little old ladies.
Needless to say, she declined. Probably because no such lawyer exists. Not one that she’s had on retainer for years and years, close friend of the family, as she claims, anyway. Instead, Wee Willie here kept showing up, laying it on thick with the vulgarities. I guess s/he thought that a few crude words would throw the scent off the fact that she’s a liar, a fraud and a thief. Sorry. It didn’t. Some of us actually were soldiers, and have heard much worse than anything her lame, limited vocabulary can come up with.
After that, she knew she was busted and hasn’t been back since. Not as her stripper fixation, anyway.
To catch you up, Mr Shadow here is the guy that Tabetha has seemingly had the hots for forever, so much so that she named a book series after him. If you care anything about literature, please don’t consider this a plug. I’ve read her writing and cannot in good conscience endorse it. All she cranks out is badly imagined half-baked smut. If, on the other hand, your standards are exceptionally low and that’s your thing, go for it. The point here, is that she’s fixated on this guy.
On message boards and in her books, she fantasizes some relationship with him, often claiming that he considers her the sister he never had. How that plays into her writing a series of smut books about him, I’m not sure. Most brother/sister relationships I know don’t go that way. But, hey. If that’s how she rolls, more power to her.
After “Mr. Shadow” jumped on my blogs to stick up for poor, picked-on Tabetha, someone in the real world contacted the guy and let him know what’s been going on. He posted about it, called Tabetha by name and laughed at how ridiculous she is. Someone close to Tabetha insisted that such a post never happened and that I was lying about that just like I was lying about everything else.
So when a screen cap of his post showed up, the story changed to: “Oh, he and Tabetha worked together to come up with that post to mock you (me).”
Funny, but ten minutes ago, that post didn’t exist and I was a liar.
Tabetha can backpedal all she wants, but the facts remain the same. She’s caught up in a flurry of her own lies, and no amount of whitewash is going to hide it.
Speaking of alternate names, I hear congratulations are in order. Tabetha’s now going by the last name of Henley. Seems those two finally made it official. And I’m quite sure she’s not just changing her name yet again to avoid the fact that she is well and truly busted, the same way she changed the name of her company from Mystic to Phoenix to avoid reports to the Attorney General.
Must have been a quick honeymoon, too, since she’s been online under an alternym every single day. That’s what I call romance.
And I’m still waiting for that lawyer’s contact information.
