Adventures with Emerald

I recently had a running conversation with one of Tabetha’s alts, named Emerald. This was formerly the alt known as Rai Willis, recycled for another run.

Emerald kept the middle name “Rai” and Willis, she’ll later claim, is Tabetha’s birth name. It’s all rather incestuous, isn’t it?

The conversation was in PMs on FB as most of the recent stripper drama was going on. Emerald jumped to Tabetha’s defense about what good buddies she is with this stripper guy (who won’t even answer her on his FB page and didn’t even know who she was when asked), and Eric’s, insisting that he was, indeed, one of the Marine corps’s finest, a sniper in recon on more than one deployment. So quick to defend those two, and so knowledgeable about their most private affairs, despite only being a newly signed writer to their so called publishing company. The conversation is enlightening, entertaining, and further proof of Tabetha’s pathos. It is a bit long, though, so read this one when you’re prepared to settle in.

Here we go.

JT Larson Hi Tabby Cat. It’s always amusing to see yet another new personality.

I’m sorry I;m not sure I know who you are and why you are calling me Tabby Cat. I work for a Tabetha Jones and for Phoenix Fire mam but i am afraid you have me mistaken for someone else.

Of course I have. Good luck with this alt, and with the dozens I’m sure will follow.

Ms. Larson I mean no disrespect but I am not sure why you are contacting me. Yes Emerald is my pen name but I prefer to keep my private life private. There are a lot of weirdos out there these days. I am not sure what you mean when you say alts and the dozens that will follow. I am a bit confused on that matter. I recently signed with Tabetha Jones the owner of Phoenix Fire but I am afraid she has not mentioned you. She has mentioned trouble that she struggled with in the past regarding her previous company and several blogs that were giving her a hard time. At the moment I am just signed on for anthologies and private collections with Emily Walker under her pen names Anna and Jewels. But I assure you I do not know you and know nothing of you. I do believe you have me confused with someone else. But I would like to clear this matter up. I find it disrespectful that you make such accusations to someone whom you have never met. But i would like to resolve this matter. I am a new author and not looking for any sort of trouble.

Okay. I’ll play along. If you’re really an author that recently signed on with Tabetha Jones and Phoenix Fire, the only advice I can give you is to run, not walk away from her. She is a con artist, a liar, thief and scam artist. The blogs she mentioned gave her a hard time because they exposed her fraudulent “business” practices and she couldn’t talk her way out of it. She cries “Defamation!” to anybody that will listen, but has yet to sic her nonexistent lawyer on anybody for it. One of her more famous tactics is to create new identities to publish stories and reviews under in order to make her nonexistent, illegal “company” seem more important than it ever will be in reality. I’ve approached you in this way because I’d bet money that you are another one of those many, many fake identities. And not just me. A LOT of people still notice what Tabs is up to. Nobody’s fooled, and a great many of us like to make sure that no new author will be victimized by that thief ever again. So if you really are a new author that’s not looking for any sort of trouble, you’ve signed on with the worst person imaginable in this industry. She’s listed under “Writers, Beware” as a publisher to avoid and has the well-earned reputation of being a liar and a fraud. There are artists and editors that are still waiting to be paid for their work, and many, many authors that she’s ripped off in royalties by producing false sales reports. If you are a new author, I repeat: Walk, don’t run away from Tabetha Jones. If you’re Tabetha Jones pulling another lame identity out your arse to try to bolster your ridiculous, illegal company: You’re not fooling anybody, hon. And we’re still watching you.

And, btw, my initials are non-gender specific, and my profile picture is a man. Yet you knew enough about me to call me Ms. Just saying.

Ms. Larson as I stated I recently signed anthology contracts with Phoenix Fire and 2 collection pieces with Emily Walker under her pen names Jewels Moss and Anna Lovelace. I was recommended by an author that is currently signed with her. Emily and Tabetha helped me come up with the pen name, I went with Emerald because I just love the color and and Tabetha did the middle part and Emily did Fleurs, because it means flower.
I called you mam because most of the messages i have received have been from women so i assumed you were another. I meant no disrespect if you a man sir. But a lot of ladies have inboxed me.
Tabetha has explained alot to me about her past and was upfront with me about the Mystic Press thing. I referenced her authors before I signed anything and none of them spoke ill of her. All assured me that they had received royalties every 3 months, that she worked one on one with them. I spoke to several. I also did by homework by googling the company and Tabetha herself.
I found several hate blogs but that is when I turned to her authors for references. Each were welcoming and answered all my questions. So with that I am not sure what to believe.
Again I do apologize for calling you mam if you are a sir, but I assumed and I am sorry. My name is Jenny btw. And I do appreciate your advice.
If you don’t mind me asking were you signed with Ms. Jones or work with her? And if you don’t mind me asking how long has all this been going on? I know what her authors explained to me and what Tabetha explained to me but I would like to know how all the blogs came about? And some of them date fairly far back which I don’t understand why you would still be watching her, seems creepy to me.
I am sure you have your reasons but I just am not one to hang on to things. I never have been that way. I don’t let too much bother me. But if you could answer my questions I would appreciate it.

My daughter signed with Mystic Press a few months before it closed down. Tabetha offered my daughter a contract with raves.I was hired to do the cover art for that book. Then, after my daughter paid Tabetha’s up-front costs, she started saying that the book was crap and it wasn’t going to be published. And, since editors had spent time reading that crap, no money would be returned. When pressed, Tabetha insisted that it was a submissions editor that offered my daughter a contract, without even reading that crap, and was promptly fired for it. (The mysterious submissions editor in question turned out to be a relative, either a sister in law or mother in law, mother, I don’t remember.) Tabetha didn’t have an answer for it when reminded that no part of the up front fees covered editors, it was for services that were never rendered, Tabetha got nasty and started to threaten my daughter with legal action. Typical. My daughter was never repaid her money for services never rendered, and I was never repaid for the artwork, which I still have the message saying that she would. Upon speaking with other former Mystic Press authors, we found out that there are, as I said before, other editors and artists that remain unpaid to this day. And many of the authors were stiffed for royalties all together, or shorted by way of falsified sales reports. I can pretty much guarantee you that 90% of the authors you spoke to were her aliases. The blogs came about when another author was brave enough to step forward and speak publicly about what happened to her — which is very similar wot what happened to my daughter. Others stepped forward thanks to that author’s bravery, and public scrutiny fell upon Tabetha’s dubious business practices. Other people and other blogs investigated Tabetha’s practices, and less than a month after being reported to the Texas State Attorney General for fraud and theft, Tabetha claimed to close Mystic Press. All she did was change the name. The accounts remained the same. She tried to continue to do business as Phoenix Fire without skipping a beat. To sum it up, she doesn’t have a legal business. If you’re an author that’s signed a contract, you can walk away. The business doesn’t exist legally, so no contract exists legally. She can’t do a single thing to you. She’ll bluster and threaten legal action, but she’s pulled so much illegal crap that the last thing she wants is to see the inside of a courtroom. I’d bet on it.
The blogs tell the true story of Tabetha Jones, and she’s still trying to connive her way out from under that. She’s still creating false ID’s that she thinks people are too stupid to see right through, but she’s mistaken if she thinks we don’t know her. We’ve dealt with her and her crap for a long time. There are things called “tells” in a way a person writes, and we know all of hers. So she thinks she’s being slick by inventing all these alternative personalities, but she’s not fooling a single person And trying to rip authors off for services they either don’t get or are false representations of what she says they are. Her blog tours, as she calls them, are just blogs owned by her own alternate personalities. So the “tour” an author pays for is nothing but posts on her own pages, nothing out in the literary community like an author is led to believe. She tries to write her ridiculously bad smut, calling it erotica, under these different names, publicly proclaiming how many authors she’s got and how well her company’s doing, to try and lure in some new author that’s desperate or gullible enough to believe that Tabetha’s actually a publisher.
She can’t write. She’s a rip-off artist, and if you’re a real, serious author, the best thing you can do for yourself is get as far away from her as possible.
I don’t sit here and pore over that scam artist’s rubbish day in and day out. I’m a real author, and an artist with enough work commissioned to keep me busy for a very long time. But whenever she comes up with yet another alias, or when I see a book come out that seems suspiciously like a title written by one of the many former authors that were smart enough to get away from her, or when I see that some new author has been suckered in, I make it known. It’s not to be creepy. It’s to make sure nobody else gets ripped off. I hope I’ve answered your questions.

Well the authors I personally spoke with were Cindy White Misty Burke Emily Walker Eris Kelli Carlie Rose and then the cover artist. I know Emily writes under jewels and anna i love her work. Im doing a couple of collections with her. I was even given the name and number of Tabethas attorney because i didnt understand why a publishing company would back anthologies and private collections and not take their cut. But he was a very nice man and agreed to speak with my attorney. I did that because of all the blogs that had warnings. Now the contract I have for my main manuscript states that we dont pay for editing or marketing. I know i filled out several interviews for their new online magazine.
I am so sorry that happened to your daughter but i wouldnt have signed a damn thing if my attorney wasnt able to talk to hers.
I wanted to make sure my work was safe. But i would like to keep in touch and if anything happens you will be the first to know. Thank you so much for your time. I aporeciate your time. And i will give what you said a lot of thought. Thank you again JT and i wish your daughter the best. You as well.

May I ask why you would come to me for this? As Ms.Jones has been nothing but kind to me and have been googling and researching since our discussion. Unlike others I will not be tricked or mislead. And the last thing a new author needs is to get involved in is this ongoing war that is happening all over the internet. But the question remains. Why would you come to me? I don’t want my name brought up or smeared anywhere. I am a new author and you can understand I am trying to build a good following and a good name as an erotic author which is a tough market anyhow. I just don’t want my name pen or real bought out. And as an erotic author I definitely do not want people knowing my name is Jenny. I refrain from giving my last name on social sites for the same reason. I can help in some ways possibly but I need reassurance from you.


6:06pm
JT Larson
You said you had his number so I thought I’d ask you. You seem like a reasonable sort that isn’t going to just blow me a bunch of excuses. Whenever anybody asks Tabetha, all we get is excuses. So, if such a lawyer really exists, I’ve got some questions for him. Can you send his name and number my way? Thanks.
And I repeat: If you are a new and upcoming author, the last person in the world you want anywhere near your work is Tabetha Jones. It isn’t an online war, as you’re being led to believe. It’s Tabetha et al ripping people off, behaving badly and getting called on it. There’s a difference. If she didn’t rip people off and crush their dreams, nobody would have a thing to call her out on. Check out those blogs she’s trying so desperately hard to discredit. They aren’t making this stuff up. They’re pointing it out. There’s a huge difference. Honestly, if you’re serious about wanting to investigate and learn the truth, read these entries all the way back to last year. You’ll learn something about Tabetha Jones and her illegal business practices.

JT I have seen this blog it was pointed out to me by Cindy White. I also have been contacted by several former Mystic authors. I found google is your friend. Again I do not want my good name to end up there as it already has. That is why I refuse to give out my personal fb info or add anyone from the company on it. It is only for my family and friends. Her attorney is Herring and Associates not local Waco attorneys which I found odd but my attorney did a background check on both owners and the attorney. As I said I won’t be tricked or mislead but what I found surprising is Ms. Jones told me all about Mystic, this blog, and several other things our first conversation on the telephone. I told her I would take a look and for now stick with the anthology contract. Once I spoke with her attorney and met with mine that was when I signed for three upcoming books. Now if she goes back on her word unlike false threats from others I will take her to court. I am not the kind of woman to trick or lie too.

Ms. Jones is rather slippery. Rather than try to hide from the blogs that expose the truth about her, her shady character and her dubious business practices, she heralds them right up front, along with claims that we have attacked and defamed her “See, Here’s the proof of their lies about me.” But what anybody who wants to know the real truth needs to realize. Cuss (Janrae, not some ridiculous impostor) has been in the industry since the 70’s, successfully, and has a reputation beyond reproach. She doesn’t just make up stuff and slander TJ all over the place, Cuss posts what’s already out there by TJ’s own hand and reveals what’s going on. Cuss hasn’t lied or created any misinformation about TJ. She doesn’t have to. TJ does it herself. Every time she scams an author (leading them to believe they’re getting a blog tour when, in fact, the blogs belong only to TJ by way of fake names, etc), withholds royalties, which has been proven, reneges on a contract, which has also been proven, Comes up with so many fake aliases that they trip over each other (seeing that a lot lately, aren’t we?) or goes around a site like Goodreads rating down former authors that had the good sense to get away from her, Cuss points it out. She doesn’t make it up, it’s there for the world to see. And, no, we all have better things to do, like write and publish books that are actually worth the time it takes to read them. But, having been stung by that scam artist, we feel it’s important to try and help keep any new authors from being scammed and having their dreams crushed by such a liar and a fraud. We think it’s worth the time it takes to try and warn new authors off. The way I say it is this: These authors that she’s rating down and lying about, she was once as friendly to them as she is to you. Then when they started asking why they’re not getting royalties, she treats them like this. So, if she treats other former authors that once trusted her this way, how to you think she’ll treat you? Nobody’s going to try to trick you or lie to you. We don’t have to. Not to you or to TJ. No lies are necessary when the truth is there for the world to see. No amount of her trickery or self-supposed Texas charm can change that. She can lie, cheat and steal from new authors, but she can’t trick her way out of the truth of her own history. And I think she knows it. The more ridiculous her antics get, the more desperately she’s trying to cover her tracks. She’s as obvious as her writing skills are poor. That’s not a “dig.” It’s just the truth. You want to know the real Tabetha Jones? Just watch her for yourself. And ask yourself, is that really who you really want representing your work to the world? Is that a name and reputation that you want associated with your work for the rest of your life? Food for thought.
Thanks for the name. If you happen to come up with a number, could you slide it my way. And don’t worry, I won’t bring your name into it.

As I have seen already on that particular blog my name is already out there. Brought me to tears. I do not know any of those people and never said a harsh word about them. I want what any author wants, to do well. If I sale just one book I would be thrilled. And I have the number I just don’t know if it is in my best interest to give it out. And I am not up for game playing otherwise I would say a few things on that blog. But I will not post anything and get railroaded. I can’t even leave reviews on goodreads without someone accusing me of being someone I am not. I would appreciate if anyone including the owner of the blog has a problem with me to please have them contact me. I am rethinking my contract because I will not be brought into this when I just barely signed on. I am not blaming you but I am just seeking out advice from authors in the same genre as myself. I cannot even do that without it making headline news. If what you say if true then I am a firm believer in karma. I just want what is best for me and my writing. And I haven’t been with the company a month yet and already people are wagging their tongues. I just don’t understand what I did wrong. I should have just used my real name I might have caused my mother a heart attack but at least people wouldn’t talk badly about me. I am calling my attorney tomorrow about these contracts. And again if anyone else would like to contact me please feel free to pass it on.


7:41pm
JT Larson
The first thing to remember about those contracts is that her company does not legally exist. She’ll tell you that it does and expect you to swallow it whole so that you’re bound to her and intimidated by threat of legal recourse, but that’s just her blowing hot air. There’s nothing she can do to you if you walk and she knows it.

If people are wagging their tongues, listen to what they’re saying and ask yourself why. I don’t have anything to gain by warning you except that maybe one less author will be victimized.

Won’t give me the number? I understand completely. Can you give m the area code? Or the city they’re located in so that I can look them up for myself? Thanks a bunch.

But saying I am just a phony or fake or Tabetha for goodness sake is replusing. Not that she is an ugly woman but I have never been one for red hair. She has a pretty face but I represent myself in a different manner. Thats what I mean by wagging tongues. Have any of them contact me I will speak to any of them. But I will not make a spectacle of myself like she did on that blog. I have more respect for myself than that. I do plan on talking to my attorney about that contract because I was assured it was legal. Her attorneys have offices in Houston Dallas and San Antonio. I spoke to the one in Houston. Oh I found the previous owners and sent them messages and of course no response. But they have a list alias a mile long all with the same picture. One is Luna Sweete. Found that odd. I know you thought me to be an alt of Tabetha which honestly was insulting but are things really that bad that she has created fakes? And if so who? I need to know these things. I want all the aimo I can get to protect myself.

I also saw the rants on goodreads. Honestly the main reason I submitted was because of her series and Emily and what she writes under her pen names. I have never read anything of the blog owners or your daughter. I am more into paranormal or erotica ir both. I recently finished The Last Kiss by M.R. Murphy which come to find out through the blog she was a former author of Tabetha’s. I sincerely hope she does’t think I am out to get her or anything. I just came upon her book on Amazon and loved the cover. She is very talented. I just do not want any trouble from anyone.


9:50pm
JT Larson
I don’t care what she looks like. It’s her actions that make her ugly. Stealing from people, lying, cheating and crushing people’s dreams for the sake of her own greed makes her ugly. I didn’t deal with the previous owners and neither did my daughter. We dealt with Tabetha Jones. She can try to blame stuff off on previous owners, whatever, but there are too many of us that dealt directly with her. She can’t blame that on anybody else but herself. Start with Alla Lovelace, Zoey Sweete and Rai Willis. There are more, and I’ll ask around to be sure, but those few are none other. It’s been proven, right down to the photos of models she’s used as her own photos. More than one, with different tattoos in one alt’s case. How thick can you get? Honestly, how stupid does she think people are? I don’t know what’s more pathetic, that she really believes her crap, or that she thinks anybody else is gullible enough to believe it too.

M.R Murphy was a former Tabetha client. So were most, if not all, of the other authors she and Eric are rating down with one star reviews. Those authors had enough of being stolen from by her and left, and now she’s retaliating. I don’t know what she hopes to gain, she’s only making herself look like even more of an unprofessional arse. Well, not Eric, not anymore. Looks like his profile has been deleted. If Tabby Scat keeps it up, her’s might just follow. I only wonder how long it takes her/him to come up with some line like “He took it down himself so that he wouldn’t have to deal with those horrible, immature people” when he was the one being horrible and immature. Still, I’ll bet they come up with some lame excuse like that. Don’t worry. Whatever your motivations, they will come to light. If you’re a good person coming from a good place, they’ll find that out and you’ll be cool. You’ll see. These are smart people. They’ll see where you’re coming from.

Anna Lovelace is Emily Walker I am doing two collections with her and talk to her on a daily basis so I know Anna isnt Tabetha. Nice to know she gave me a pen name that belonged to someone else. Nice real nice. And I checked out Janrae Frank and my name is all over her page. I didn’t pick this pen name Emily and Tabetha did. My real name is Jenny B*****. Tabetha thought that being an erotic author I needed something with flare and grab attention. She also knew I wanted my real name concealed. My family are not supportive of my style and I didn’t want them knowing.

So, even though she’s already not using her real name, they thought she needed another alias, and that it was a good idea to recycle one that’s already been embroiled in Tabetha’s personal and publishing controversies? Good call.
Wrong. This is just another Tabetha alias that got outed, and she’s trying to explain it away.


10:03pm

I have my official author page and this page I don’t give out my personal page. One it doesn’t just belong to me its for myself and husband. Its has non authors and family on it. I like to keep my private life private. Now Tabetha set up this page fir me but my official author page I created off my private personal one. Its a like page. But I changed the password and all to this one once she handed it over. I knew nothing of creating an author page. Took me an hour to figure out the create a page thing. Facebook really isn’t my thing. She also set up my blog for me cause I know nothing of blogging. All of this is new to me.

Why would anyone believe myself to be anyone other than Jenny B*****. I already had a few friends bust this page and I had to answer a thousand questions. I would however like to talk to this Janrae and give her the info I have. And let her know what is going on. I have talked things over with my husband and we are going to meet with our attorney tomorrow. Now I will say this, I have paid no money or fees. And I did mention to Tabetha tonight about Eric being gone from goodreads. She said and I quote ‘Eric got tired of everyone harassing him so he deleted it’ I asked her if there was anything I needed to know about all this that was going on and she said no she wanted her authors to stay out of it but in the group it was a different story. But it wasn’t her it was Eric. Now you can believe me or not. You don’t know me but I would like a future in the publishing world. And I would appreciate it if you would at least let the others know I am a real person. And due to your advice I will be seeking legal advice about my contract. I am actually supposed to be traveling to Austin next week to see my in laws Tabetha said when I came through Waco her and I could get together for a latte or something. Might be a good opportunity to call her on all this face to face.

I knew it. Didn’t I say that he’d claim to have taken it down himself? He was harassing others, rating them down and giving them a crap review, when he hadn’t so much as read the books he was slamming. People were calling him out on it and reported him. I reported him myself, for making a thinly veiled threat against my daughter in one comment.

I’m sure Janrae would be happy to talk to you. There have been other associates of Tabetha’s that fell under the same suspicion, talked to Janrae and were found to be blameless. But only one or two. Nobody gives them a hard time, knowing that they, like so many others, were taken in and fooled by her. They were victims just like the rest of us. I now talk to a couple of them fairly regularly- and not about TAbetha Jones. We do have lives out here. We talk about books and whatever’s going on in our lives. ‘ll be very happy if you turn out to be one of them.

The best thing in the world that you could do to put everybody’s suspicions of being an alt would be to get a picture of the two of you together having coffee. Then who could argue? That would settle it once and for all. I think that’s a great idea.

Tabetha’s company doesn’t exist legally, so your contract doesn’t either. You could walk away from her and there’s not a thing she can do about it. She’s had others intimidated into thinking that they’re bound to her by this contract, but they’re not. Neither are you. She’s made some extra money off of people making them pay hundreds of dollars for her to release their title. Don’t let her pull that on you, either. You have not one single legal obligation to her, as her contract is legally invalid in the first place. Don’t let her bully you, and don’t let her con you. If you decide you want to walk away, just do it, and tell her to smooch your derriere if she tries to pull any legal threats on you. There are legal, valid indie publishers out there that will assist you on your path. Or, you can do it yourself for free through sources like Createspace and Lightning source. Don’t let the likes of TJ discourage you. If you write well, you’ll do just fine without her.

Here’s Janrae on FB. You can private message her about anything you want to talk about. She’s a very fair person and will give you a fair say. And if everything checks out, she’ll let the world know about that. She touts the truth far and wide, whatever the truth is. https://www.facebook.com/janrae.frank?fref=ts

Thank you so much. My husband spoke with our attorney today and he is looking into EVERYTHING. I even paid for a background check on both of them. Cost me a pretty penny but I want everything I can get my hands on. I am still doing the anthology it releases next week. But I was told if I drop then she has to remove my work from the book. I was thinking about that having a picture of her and I. Of course my husband is on my ass over all this. He does not like the fact that I haven’t been associated with this company even a month yet and look at all the hate and drama that has unfolded. I will not be a part of that. My husband is the one that suggested I speak with Janrae. Of course that is also why he made it very clear he did not want our personal page attached to anything with Emerald. He supports my writing but my family and friends think I am wasting my time. And of course the fact that I write erotica paranormal and non paranormal is a big no no. My husband just wants what is best for me. Now is the best way to contact Janrae is through facebook or should I email her? I did set up an author email account, my husband just wants my author life and personal life separate. He is very concerned. I even sent M.R. Murphy a message apologizing. I had no idea that she had been part of all this. I was honestly just browsing through amazon and the cover caught my eye. I don’t want anyone rhinking ill of me. If I had known any of this I just never would have let her take the reins. But I did call her this morning confronting on a bunch of this and all she would say is I had nithing to be worried about and it was being handled. Just concentrate on my writing. I told her I had concerns of publishing with her company. So I am talking with new and old authors. I am trying to get all the knowledge I can in this matter. Again I am not a woman that she wants to mess with. I have no problem seeing her inside a courtroom. And if its as bad as you say then I doubt thats the last place she wants to be.

Honestly, if it were me, I’d pull out of the anthology as well. It’s great to anticipate being published, but I wouldn’t want my name or my work associated with these people for the rest of my career because of it. I’d pull out of the anthology. She’s the publisher, she can fill the space with some of her own inane scribblings. And there isn’t a single legal thing she can do about it. All she can do is bluster and threaten. That’s it. Go ahead and send Janrae a message through FB. She’ll get back to you.

Writing is most certainly not a waste of time. Don’t let anybody discourage you. I wish you the best of luck figuring all of this out. I’m sure you’ll end up doing the right thing for yourself and your career.

My husband is doing some more digging and getting another opinion from another attorney. Apparently the contract is legal and binding. Also her company is registered. I haven’t got background checks back yet but so far looks like I’m stuck. But we are getting a second opinion not that I don’t trust this guy but I just want to be sure. But we are still out and about but just thought I would tell you. I am also trying to get in touch with a few others that might be able to do some investigating.

A quick search shows that there’s no such company registered in the state of Texas. But I’ve got a call in with the chamber of commerce to double check. I’ll be sure to let you know what I find out.

I have a meeting at 3:30 with another attorney and taking my contract. I also got the background checks back. My husband is a police officer and is using all his efforts. But there is nothing that matches other than Tabetha has moved a lot and been married to a few unnamable assholes. Eric well the only thing we found on him is that he was a marine but everything on him is closed due to the involvement with Spec Ops. It was harder to penpoint Tabetha because of last name changes but shes clean except for a law suit against a Brandy Peay and Wendy Hunyor. Its a large amount. I found out through a former author they were former owners of some of company that she took over. But I am not sure howor what name Phoenix is registered with but the last attorney said it was legal. It might be registered under a former married name. Anyhow the attorney I am meeting with today already has the information. I will know more then.


1:29pm
JT Larson
You can do a simple search on the Texas.gov website and find out that there’s no company registered under any name even close to that. And a background check on she and Eric both show no companies registered under any of their names or aliases. So that alone proves that she’s a fraud, claiming ownership of a legally registered company. I hope this lawyer is more thorough than the last one. And, regardless of what either lawyer says, you already have proof right in front of you that TJ is a fraud. I can only hope for your own sake, the sake of your career, that you realize what a scam she is and walk away.

emerald
1:33pm
Emerald Rai Fleurs
That is why my husband and I did our own background checks. Now there is something registered under a former married name but does not say what but it is not a car nor house. Husband is even unsure. The attorney is supposed to look at it today.

No there isn’t. The only thing under her name is a property she’s probably been living in the whole time she’s been running her authors around by using different addresses on her contracts.
Say, doesn’t that constitute fraud?


1:36pm
JT Larson
I ran background checks on her and so have several others. The only thing she’s got under any name is a property and a string of rentals a mile long. But that one property remains constant. She’s probably still living there while trying to lead her scam victims on a merry chase with all of these different addresses she uses. Regardless, the point is that she has no business registered under any name she’s ever used. That alone makes her a liar and a fraud.

emerald

Emerald Rai Fleurs
The property on a C********* in Waco she sold in 2008. She has moved from Dallas to Rice to Corsicana then back to Waco then Killeen and her last known address is in Waco on a C*****. That is the address on the contract. She has been married 3 times. One has charges for domestic violence and my husband was able to pull that case up and the pictures of her face or horrible. Sorry wife beater. No cars in her name. But we are still trying to figure what that is registered because if it was property it would have the address if it was a carit would show auto. But it shows an odd set of numbers with Renee W. Now another odd thing we found on her is Jones is an adopted name. But those records are sealed.

Attorney says that the background check is legit and so is the company. It is just the way it is set up. its under her birth name. Not adopted name. And seeing as they records are closed and against privacy acts he cannot get the documentation. He explained that she probably did it that way so no ex husbands could touch it and no one could touch her. But the company is real and it is registered but done in a completely different way. I am stunned not sure what to say other than I feel like a dumbass. And I spent a ton of money on all this.

Shows two adoptions on her. Also the only charges she ever had was a dwi but she paid everything out. Eric is like a ghost. Nothing on him at all. I am not sure if its due to what he did in the marines or not. Now Mystic there is nothing. Could not find a trace other than a law suit. The men she married holy shit total losers. But it all checks out attorney said he is blown away never seen a company set up like this but her attorney was clever.

11:59am

Except perhaps one thing. What is the company registered as?

emerald
12:42pm
Emerald Rai Fleurs
It is registered as a private business under her birth name. I believe he told me LLC but as a private business under her birth name no one can touch her or take anything away. He explained that it was done that way because of exhusbands maybe family, or future husbands. He believes she did it that way for her daughter. He said that her attorney was clever by doing it that way. She is highly protected making it impossible to find anything out. The contracts are legal and binding. Everything about her company is legal. She has pay out receipts for royalties, everything. Tax returns. All that


12:58pm
JT Larson
Ex husbands can’t touch her once they’re divorced, so she doesn’t need to worry about that. Her attorney is clever indeed, to create a company that doesn’t exist according to the Texas state chamber of commerce. That just doesn’t happen. Her new authors might buy that and think they’re stuck with her, but it simply doesn’t happen. Honestly, if you want out, just walk away. She has done and continues to do too many illegal things. She will not pursue you and risk finding herself in a courtroom where all of it can come to light. The last thing that scam artist wants is to see the inside of a courtroom. She can’t touch you.

emerald
1:16pm
Emerald Rai Fleurs
The attorney says different. it is registered, but they way it has been done is completely different than anything he has seen. Even Eric as co-owner cannot take anything from her. She did it for many reasons he thinks. But as far as a courtroom she will be seeing the inside of one soon against Wendy Hunyor and Brandy Peay. It is with someone else. Its close to 30,000. The attorney also said in the state of Texas her and Eric could be common law married so she enforced the company to be registered this way so if they split he cannot have anything from her. It is set up to go to her daughter. All her royalties go to her daughters account.


1:19pm

They certainly don’t go to the authors.

And if you ever decide to break away from her for the sake of your writing career and self-preservation, you let me know. I’ll appear as a witness for you, too.

Well, just between you and me, don’t say anything to Tabetha, but I might be able to help you out soon. Her and Eric’s latest escapades on Goodreads has pissed off a lot of people. We’re pooling our money and having her thoroughly investigated once and for all. We’ll find out what’s behind all this adoption/business registration. Birth records are sealed, but company records aren’t. We’re going to find out everything there is to know about Phoenix Fire publishing and Tabetha Jones.

Keep me posted and feel free to let Janrae know. Tried inboxing her own facebox and wouldnt let me. So when she can just have her inbox me. You can let her know privately what is going on. I do not want it on the blog. I think that woukd be bad. She checks it constantly. And with the questions I have asked she would know. So I will play nice for right now. But the attorney got all her records from her attorney. She has paid a lot of people but he noticed nothing goes to her. It says it goes to a private account. I mean she has her crap locked down. But he assured me that if I left I would be responsible for the termination fee. He isn’t sure about Mystic authors cause there is nothing found. And records show no earnings were made. I had ask if they were doctored because of what I have seen on the blog and he said no. No way. And so I wonder if maybe what her reason is for being so private especially after her out bursts in that blog. But u can share this with Janrae and have inbox me. Maybe she can help. Also I will send you some of my work. I would like an honest opinion. Anyhow thank you for everything. This is between you and I. But Janrae seems like a smart woman. I think she could really help me so again have her contact me. And thank you.


2:39pm

That’s absolute rubbish about sales. Tabetha says there weren’t any sales, but authors have affidavits from people that have bought copies of their books, and still have them (negating TJ’s next argument: that they were returned). Those assertions might be what finally trip her up. Along with all the rest of this. It’s catching up to her. I hope she can feel that chill on the back of her neck. That’s Karma, and it’s getting ever closer.

Whatever may or may not be happening now, she can’t just wipe away a year (or more) of how she cheated, lied to and ripped off authors, artists and editors. She can’t lie that away, no matter how hard she tries to pretend it never happened. That will forever exist, and she’ll answer for it. I don’t know if I told you, but I’ve recieved confirmation that she’s being investigated by the IRS. Everybody she ripped off reported her and continue to follow up. She can lie to her new authors and spin whatever web she wants, but she can’t lie her way out of it to the feds. I only wish I could be a fly on the wall when it catches up with her. But I’ll satisfy myself reading all about it.

As for Eric being in the Marines, special ops, no less, that’s a complete and total joke. That man has the honor god gave a slug. There’s a handbook that marines are given in basic training that they have to memorize front to back. At any given moment, they have to be able to recite a paragraph or a page. That book has an official name, of course, but there’s a pet name the soldiers call it. I’d LOVE to know if he knows what that pet name is. I’d bet money that he doesn’t.

Soon enough, We’ll have the scoop on what’s going on with PF. We already know the story with Mystic. It’s the same story with Phoenix, and we’re about to prove it. You’ll be free and clear in no time.

I will ask Eric a few questions about his time. As far as the IRS I am not know about that. Nothing shows up. But again I will play nice. Tabetha has been nice to me. So has Eric. They are a bit different very laid back. Eric is an enforcer or rules while Tabetha does everything else. I dont think Eric does anything. I do know his background check was weird but the attorney told me is the only reason his marine records are sealed is if he had special assigments as a sniper or special ops. Special or Black Ops some forces call them is on his record. Tabetha also has two domestic violence charges on her ex husband. Not just one. Pictures were taken on one the other was closed. The divorce was nasty and he is some fat redneck. Her second husband was a bad boy was a criminal list a mile long. First one went to jail for almost killing his second wife. Real winners she choices. I was married before but the first time he hit me I ran like hell. I actually met my husband now. He was the one that took the call. But he makes good money and if I dont get my royalties she will see me in civil court.

Oh my goodness. That’s horrible. You saw these pictures? It must have been terrible. No woman should live like that. I hope the abuser wasn’t her kid’s dad. Kids need good, respectable examples to look up to, not some crook with a bad attitude and criminal record.

If Eric was special ops or black ops as a sniper or anything else, I’ll eat my hat, with my head in it. He’s only tough when he’s threatening and bullying women. I don’t know what’s up with his background check, but that guy’s no Marine. For one thing, the time it takes for that kind of training doesn’t match up with his age. For another, he doesn’t have what it takes. A week into tough training, he’d wash out pissing his pants like a little girl.

Good for you. Don’t let that scamming thief put one over on you. Stand up for your rights and make sure you get every dime you deserve. Talk soon.

Yes my husband pulled up the police report. And pictures were taken for one case that involved her daughter. He beat her, then choked her and the child. The state only took away visitation for a year. It was awful. And I found the dumbass on facebook. He’s a big guy, looks like a wife beating redneck.

As for Eric I don;t know. It is what shows on his background, and it was only five years. But everything is sealed, same as her adoptions. The lawyer wasn’t even allowed to give me her birth name. Jones must have been her last legal adoption. Cause I have all her married names.

But no if she doesn’t pay me 3 months after my book releases I will sue her for every damn penny she has. I have worked hard to get where I am. And I will not be cheated.

Anyhow here is a sample of my work. I have shown it to a couple of others since I first mentioned it. A few betas and everyone seemed to like. But hell I want a real honest opinion not people that suck up just because they are followers of Zoey Sweete.

She did indeed send me a snippet, but I’m not posting it. I’ll just hang onto it and wait to see where else it pops up.

And the runaround about her names and adoptions, marriages, etc? Just plain stupid. A simple $30 background check shows what all of her names have been. Not a sealed adoption, if one (or two) exist, but all the married names are there in black and white. If an attorney can’t simply read the list, boy is she paying too much for him.

So I asked Eric a few questions last night about the Marines because my husband is a cop and was thinking about joining. Anyhow he said a few things and we got to talking about his schooling and how long it took. He said 6 weeks for regular boot camp, 6 weeks for recon and 6 weeks for sniper school but he said there was nothing more he could say about what he did because of what he did. I looked it up and that info was right. I did ask him casually about the handbook and what was required. He said something about the devil dog handbook, and said lol then went on to tell me a story about part of his training how he wouldn’t break. It was like he was bringing. But I had my husband look up his drill sergeants and staff sergeants, and they all exist. So I have no idea.

I have a thriller horror type one but I don’t think anyone would publish it because of the rape scene but it is needed so i havent touched it


6:32pm
JT Larson
Not all BDSM has to be erotica. The lifestyle and sex aren’t necessarily the same thing. It’s about the mentality, not just the romps.

As for a horror story, depending on the story line and how integral the scene is, along with how it’s written, it could probably be published with it. Just query agents and real publishers. After all, if Twilight can be such a hit, anything’s possible.

It’s not the first time that I’ve heard about her writing a book that’s suspiciously similar to somebody else’s, though. I’ve heard from several of her former authors that something she came out with since they got smart enough to part company with her was very similar to theirs. So, it looks like she not only rips her authors off for royalties, but for ideas as well.
Wouldn’t surprise me a bit.

emerald

well my BDSM is NOT erotica. There is barely any sex in it. It is more about discipline and punishment. I did a lot of research even interviewed a club here in Dallas about it. I learned a lot.

So I believe Wilson or Willis is her first adopted name. Her birth name is sealed. Cannot get it at all. I also found out Skylynn Wicker is a high profile model. Not Tabetha. See Tabetha worked at some club that Sky did a guys and dolls night. Apparently Tabetha dated a la bare dancer. They met and became friends. Her model name is Alex something. Skys account has been closed due to all the drama surrounding Michael Smith. Word is Sky invested and Michael got nasty with her I mean sexual nasty. I am working on trying to get her model name and contact her. But so far that is all I have

If there had ever been any doubt that Emerald was an alt, trying to convince me that Rai Willis was a real person, a top model, tore it. Rai’s been busted as being an alt long since, same as Sky (Skylynn) Wicker, Anna Lovelace and the rest of them.

I wonder if she scammed him out of hundreds of bucks with her bogus “release fee.” Just one more way for her to rip off real authors when they wise up and decide to get away from her. She can’t keep ripping them off for royalties that she probably puts into her kids account to hide, so she rips ’em off one last time on their way out the door. That’s one more reason we like to stay in touch with her authors. To encourage them to walk away without paying her bogus separation fee. She doesn’t own them or their material, despite what she says. They can walk away from her free and clear. So can you. If you want to be done with her, just walk away. Despite her bluster, she can’t touch you. Her contract is legit and binding? Hogwash. Make her sue you. Then she can explain her actions in court. I’d put real money on the fact that she wouldn’t chance it. Not in a million years.

I don’t buy it. If you walk, she’s got to take you to court, and that is something she just won’t do. Look at all the Mystic authors that walked away from her when they discovered she was ripping them off. She huffed and she puffed, but when it came right down to it, they walked and there wasn’t a thing she could do about it. I don’t know where this information is coming from, but it doesn’t match up with what we’re finding. And what we’re finding is very, very interesting. It boils down to this. She’s full of it. She knows it and we know it. She keeps shoveling it out there, though, expecting people to fall for it She throws out her rubbish legalese about contracts and so forth, but the simple and basic truth is that her company isn’t legal and neither are her contracts. No matter how she scams and bullshits, that’s the truth and she knows it. If you’re serious about being a writer, the best thing you can do for your career is walk away from her. If you don’t, if you continue to let her interfere with your career, you will be doing yourself and your writing a huge disservice. As for Tabby-Scat, some very interesting truths are about to become public knowledge. Partly thanks to you. Be proud.

I told you out of confidence that any info I sent you would be between you and I. Please refrain from speaking my name. My attorney has confirmed, well both, that she has her business in order. I wouldn’t have paid a small fortune. My husband had a fellow detective look over background checks and they are solid. I am at a loss. I cannot just walk away. She has a legal business and some of her past authors are highly pissed. A few are not. Her current ones love her. So I am not sure where things are fishy. We have checked then checked again, but it all leads back legal. My husband has been on the force many years and knows a lot of attorneys. If he felt in anyway that I was going to get conned he would dump the last bit of extra cash we have and take care of it. But I assure you I did my research then some and nothing is there. I will keep my guard up. She even offered mentoring for self publishing in the beginning. I do know she is helping a few and never asks for anything. I have spoken with so many and not just here. But I would appreciate for my family and husband please do not mention my name. I do not have the resources to keep pushing out money. If you want to do whatever that is on but I did this hoping to find truth. And I hoped that maybe all this would stop. I hate confrontation. I only do it when need be.

I cannot handle all the he said she said crap. I have talked to Tabetha and leaving. She released me without any problems. I just cannot do it. I am giving her the account back in 48 hours and she can do whatever she likes with it. I will let you know before I completely log off from it and change it back to her password and email. I do not know who is right or wrong here so it is best for myself that I just leave. My husband wants me to stay but I just can’t allow myself to get involved. I am surprised. Everyone has said she won’t just let you go. Will she did. She allowed me to take my writing and walk away no questions asked. Just like she promised in the beginning. I really think she is misunderstood. My family life is a wreck and right now I just need to focus on it. I have nothing ill to say against her and if she hadn’t let me walk I would have taken her to court. Does she know that, no. Again, I just need to step back and focus on family. I hope things go well for you. Just as I wished her.

No, she’s understood perfectly. If nothing else, look at her own words, in her own tongue. Is that who any serious writer wants representing their work? Honestly, her lack of professionalism alone should send a real author screaming through the streets away from her. You’ll do much better on your own, or submitting to a REAL publisher like Daverana press, which is run by a REAL professional that’s been involved in the publishing industry since the 70s. Keep me posted.

I don’t know if he’ll even see it …probably, since he and Tabetha both troll every word we write… but I called Eric out on all of his bullshit claims about the service. My favorite line is the one where I tell him that the 5’2 little old lady he called a C-word yesterday DID finish basic training. All 12 weeks of it. Since I’m pretty sure he washed out pissing himself like a little girl, I wonder how he likes that. Nah, he’s no Marine (no such thing as former). He’s not even a good liar about it. I only hope more people read that so they’re not intimidated by his sniper innuendo. He’s just a ridiculous, sad little bully.

For some time, I’ve been hearing about Eric’s service to our great country as a Marine. I figured he was just puffing himself up to seem more impressive, the same way his ridiculous girlfriend make…

I read your recent blog posts. I find it absolutely bullshit that you believe me to be fake or an alt, especially after the information I shared with you. The information my husband found out for you. Tabetha has allowed me to keep this profile for my writing purposes. But seeing as you believe me to be her I suppose that doesnt matter. Does it matter who is who with you? Eric  was pumping me full of shit because they knew all along that I was talking to you. Funny, Michael Smith and Roxi Ford were both released with no fees to be paid.

I also think that I am owed an apology for the crap you wrote about me. I appreciate what you trying to do but my husband is looking into this and it won’t be nice if he finds anything other than he has. I have been reading things all day on your blog and the others. I do not know who Rai Willis is, sorry. But whoever the observer person was made some good points. It would be so much better on everyone for you to prove that you have his records. Show the world. If you have all this proof, show them. I would. I would do it. They did make a point, you do have to have their full name and birthdate if you do not have a social. My husband has access to several ways of getting backgrounds checks. He also has ways of finding things out about people. Tracking Ip address’ are illegal. And if Eric was involved that heavily and was indeed a sniper, by you posting those things you could find yourself in trouble.

I do not want anyone in trouble, but from the outside looking in I think this is all crazy. If people are going to sign with her, and just as you did with me, contacting them only makes it worse. Tabetha has released several authors lately. And none were charged. I spoke to them. Directly. So I got sucked in. But I can tell you who is who. I can tell you Carlie Rose is not Christina Pinckard. I can tell you Carlie Rose is someone else. Sky Wicker was a dancer that Tab met at La Bare Dallas. She became a high profile model afterwards. Whoever the observer was asking a question for proof. I read Tabetha’s blog post. And since then and before she is really proving you wrong. I just want to see proof. At this post everyone does.

You’re the third or fourth “person” today that insists that she’s proving me wrong. Same concern about the information I have on Eric, same vague excuses for the alts I’m talking about, same everything, almost verbatim. The only thing that’s different is the very thinly veiled threat that I might find myself in “trouble” because Eric was a sniper. That’s a new one. I do have to say, throwing Draven into the mix was absolutely freaking hilarious. I got one huge laugh out of that. Honestly. Just gut-busting hilarious. She’s not showing me up at every turn, she’s proving that I’m right. The more desperate she gets, the more mistakes she makes. I kept my promise. On the one in ten-million shot that you are a real person, I kept your real name out of it like I promised I would. I haven’t shared any of your personal information, and I won’t. But Eric’s claims and Tabetha’s bullsh!t are fair game.

I do owe myself five bucks, though. I knew that you’d say that you were fed misinformation by them because they found out you were talking to me. It was just a matter of time before that one popped up.

However, IF you’re a real person, I do apologize. Surely you can understand why a person would think otherwise. A bunch of people, actually.

Honestly, I don’t care about her alts, or who is really who. I only put it out there that so many alts are involved so that new authors looking at Tabetha Jones can see two things. That she’s got fake authors to make her company seem more impressive, and that she’s a liar. Just so new writers can see who they’re dealing with. That’s all.

It’s such a riot, Tabetha saying something about how we should all stop spending our time on her and get on with our writing careers. That’s the biggest case of the pot calling the kettle black that I’ve ever seen. She trolls Cuss’s blog, and mine, and she takes up so much time in her day parading around the internet as all of these alts, pretending to be other people and coming after us, rating down our books on goodreads and rating down our blogs when we post ’em. When in the world does SHE find the time to crank out the crap she calls writing?

More importantly, as a mother, I wonder when she finds time for that poor kid of hers. That’s who I really feel sorry for.

If Tabetha wants to see what proof I have, she’s going to have to sue my ass for slander. It’s time that she puts up or shuts up. But that’s not going to happen because every word I’m saying is the absolute truth, and she knows it. So she can bluster about how wrong I am and how I don’t have proof, etc, but until I get that summons served to me, she’s wrong, she’s a liar, she’s a thief, and the whole world sees it.

Hm. That last paragraph might be my next blog.

Right now, though, I’m going back to laughing at her for having the unmitigated nerve to think anybody’s going to believe some stripper came to her defense. HILARIOUS!

She talks about him, and I check your blog everyday. I am real. J**** B*****. Married to A.J. B*****. Maybe not for much longer. I never threatened you. I just know how military works.

I don’t want to see anyone hurt over this

If Eric was involved in what he say he was whether he lied or not or what he told me, then by you posting that it could land you in trouble. I would never want that to happen

I do believe Tabetha set me up. She also made it clear she didn’t want this account back because I what I had been doing. That is all she said.


10:44pm
JT Larson
I don’t doubt that he’s real. But to try and make people believe that he came to her defense on some blog? Hysterical! Especially after I’ve already matched the IP’s up. And, no. It’s not illegal to search an IP. people do it all the time.

That, my friend, is not how the military works. If he were a Marine, he’d have a clue about honor and duty, and he’s got none of that. He’s quite simply full of it. As for my posting about it, HE’S the one that would get in trouble for talking about it in the first place, not me. Doesn’t matter, though, because it’s all a load of rubbish.

If you are a real person and not an alt, I’d love the be the first one to sing it loud and far, and fall all over myself apologizing and begging forgiveness. I just, at this point, don’t see it. I’m sorry, but I don’t.

Well she didn’t charge me, or Roxi Ford, or Michael Smith. We were the last three that left. And I know for a fact they were not charged. Roxi, come to find out, had a free ride. Tab never charged her a penny. I have also found out that she did the same thing for Beth Wright. I was told that by a previous Mystic author. They got pissed about it. I never paid anything, it was in my contract but it was a choice I could make. I could pay for an imprinted ISBN or get a free one, and I could pay for expanded distribution or not. She gives a choice now.

I can understand what you are trying to do, but wouldnt it be easier just to out her?

I will talk to my husband and see if he will allow me to scan the background checks for you. It will have my name and his name on them. I still plan on meeting Tabetha in Waco later this week if she will allow me. She was not happy when i called her yesterday.

And Draven works at La Bare Dallas and Austin La Bare. He goes back and forth. I haven’t been there in years. But Tabetha has gone the last twelve years. It would not surprise me for them to come in and say something. And he wasn’t really defending her from what I read, he was just saying he wanted the truth. Would not surprise me at all. Tabetha has a far reach of friends and from what she has said they are all still very close. But I have talked to most of the authors and none of them other than Rai Willis is a fake. That is Tabetha. She has told everyone. But as he stated maybe she is taking you for a ride. I dont know jt i really dont know. I only know what I am told by everyone in the company and her. Eric may have set me up wouldnt put it past them. But I took your advice and left. That should mean something.

Okay. I’m willing to allow for the fact that she might do things differently now. But that does not absolve her of the crimes that she’s committed against people she still owes money to. And they are crimes as long as she has money that doesn’t belong to her. She doesn’t just get to say it’s in the past and walk away. She still owes people money. I’m one of them.

That bit about him saying something negative about her so that people won’t think he’s fake, that’s one of her tells. She does that when she uses an alt to defend herself, throws in something negative to avert suspicion. And that’s only one. She’s got a lot of tells to her writing, her personality and her pathology, and she really is a fool if she doesn’t think we know them.

What it means that you left her is that now you have a chance for a writing career with a real publisher and an honest future. Even if you self publish, you can do so much better on your own. There are REAL publicity avenues you can explore without relying upon one of her inbred blog tours. I’m optimistic for your future now.

Do you have a link to his page? I honestly don’t think I could stomach looking for him on her page.

Hey, not to be rude, but I’m calling it a night. I know it may seem like this is all I do, but such is not the case. I jump on for chuckles, but I really do have tons going on in the real world. So, I’ll see you tomorrow.

I don’t have a link to his page but this is in Tabetha’s pictures. Not sure if this helps you. But this is Draven Shadows. And I am only keeping this page until I get the time to come up with a new pen name and all that. But I will keep you posted. I have been to that club maybe 3 times. Those guys are very dirty and from what I do know. Her ex works or worked there. She brags about it. I wouldn’t brag about dating a dancer. I am not sure if Draven and her dated she says they were friends.


11:52am
JT Larson
That’s Draven, all right. But I don’t understand why he/she/they are bringing up that fellow Angelo that got shot. That disrespects his memory and his family by dragging him into this mess. Shame on her/him/whoever.

She never dated Draven. She’s only fabricated an intimate relationship with him, and now she (or one of her cronies) is impersonating him on my bog. It’s sad, really, to see her falling apart at the seams like this.

It’s the best thing you could do, distancing your career from this train wreck of a woman. I have every confidence that you’ll do so much better.

The thing I’m interested in now is how the “Stolen Valor Act”, which makes it a federal offense to impersonate a marine, plugs into Eric’s actions. Him claiming to be a Marine sniper is an insult, and just might be illegal. At the very least, I’m back and forth on the phone with a couple of Marines in his area asking them about the legal repercussions of his actions.

Thanks for keeping me updated. I only wish I could get her lawyer on the phone.

Take care, doll.

She dated a guy named Daniel that was a dancer that is now a cover model for a romance company. She says Angelo was her inspiration for her character, its in her book. From what I have heard these guys are like brothers to her. She talks about them frequently. I dont plan on signing again I am looking into self publishing. She has been upfront with who she dated from there and who she hasn’t and there was only one. The rest she was just close with. She worked up there for awhile too. There was a discussion in the group one day about all of it. I know Eric and the owner are associates because of military background but I cannot think of his name. He is older. Very nice guy. He danced for a while but she says once he married he stopped.

I checked out your blog today and that actually sounded like him. Thats the way he talks. He is an aspiring writer, does a lot of goth stuff. Asked Tabetha to share it in the group, which I am no longer apart of. It was really good. A bit Gothic and horror but well written. But if one stops by then do not be surprised if they all start. They are like a bunch of frat boys.

I don’t know why they posted but I can tell you they are real. And they mostly live in San Antonio and travel to Dallas. They work all in between.


12:13pm
JT Larson
Intimate doesn’t always mean sex. It means close, very close. Like a sister or a best friend. That word, intimate, is far too often misused. That’s what’s confusing. Why would she use Angelo as the inspiration for her books, but name the series after a different dancer? It’s Draven she’s got the hots for. The only way it makes any sense is that the character was written after the Draven she lusts after, but she dedicated it to Angelo as a tribute to his memory. I can respect that sentiment. I really can. But considering the smutty nature of her work, I’d hardly call it a tribute. That’s hardly an honor for a fallen man. From all accounts, he was a sweetheart and deserves much better.

Sorry. That’s not the real Draven that’s posting on my blog. A few phone calls proved it. The real guy is being notified about it all, though. Just so he knows what his name is being used for. Could be he’ll want to do something about it. We’ll see.

It’s an absolute RIOT that now Draven’s “boss” is jumping on to defend Drave (who is an imposter) and Tabetha (who is like a daughter to him). From the same IP address. It’s absolutely priceless. I can’t wait to see more.

It could be a fan of hers. Someone that knows the history of how the books came about. She has shown pictures to her fans of how Draven came to be. There was one fan right when I signed that got very nasty with her. Down right stalking. The police had to be notified. Then there are some women that want to know where the name came from so about three weeks ago she put it up on one of her pages the dancers that gave her the inspiration for the names. I do know she has a friend in San Antonio that is madly in love with Draven and several of the other guys. Carrie something or other. I have seen the posts on her wall. And the last time she posted a link to your blog she told Tabetha not to worry she would take care of it. Whatever that means. But she does live in San Antonio. She is in the group. Very heavy set girl. They used to party together. Tabetha told me herself every male character in her book was named after a dancer there. I have read her series. They aren’t too bad. The further you get into them the better they get. Her erotica is not smutty at all. Needs work, and her poetry, well I just wouldn’t be that open about all the abuse and addiction. Everyone does things they’re own way. But if anyone is posing as Draven it would be her friend that lives there. Tabetha said not too long ago that Draven got remarried and his wife had to have the girl removed from their building. His wife posted on Zoey’s timeline and wanted to read the books that had the ‘guys’ in it. I have a good friend that is a bartender up there. I will call him tonight and have him take care of it. My husband also works out with one of the older guys that work up there. I will make sure he passes on the word.

The last time she posted a link to your blog was about two weeks ago I believe when all this started. She posted it in the group and her timeline.

No when my husband ran Eric’s information he had to have his full name, his date of birth without it a ton of Eric’s came back. So we talked and i asked him how old he was and all that. Then when your blog came out I got fingers pointed at me for playing both sides.

I’d have to look back, if I decide to bother. You know, the more convoluted they try to make it, the clearer the picture becomes.

It was someone that Cuss knows that came out with the FoIA check and all that. You don’t need as much information as you think. Especially if it’s a Marine that’s running it.

Another Mystic author that Tabby screwed found him and showed it all to him. Tabetha doesn’t seem to realize that when you screw people, they tend to remember it.

She must know him and a fan of Tabethas. And the girl I was talking about I cant find her but she had a running buddy. They said she has puctures if Draven everywhere. Michele Reber. Shes Carries friend. They said her albums have Draven and another dancer all over. The Carrie girl I cant get her last name but they both were obsessed with him. Tabetha had a favorite dancer from this girl said but it wasnt Draven. It was a Fabian. Pass it on to him that it was probably one of the two. The way I was told you dont go back and forth. This girl said that the Carrie girl got inapproriate with Draven and got kicked out. Tabetha stuck with one dancer then when he retired she qent up there for a Tristan. The girl is going to try to get a last name for me. She was a doir girl there for awhile. I wonder if Tabetha knows. She might be just as pissed. I have had my friend watching the group and her. She hasnt said anything. The door girl said she thought a lot of the guys and thought a lot of the guy who died and would never bring him up. I dont think Tabetha posted these. She might have done it in the past. But the door girl said she would be too scared to do it to these guys.


8:38pm

Only one question leaps to mind. If she wasn’t a Draven fan, why did she name her series after him. I don’t expect an answer, it’s just something to think about. It’s not the Fabian witch series, after all.

The door girl said they were friends and he did a rock and roll act. But the girl said the dancer she dated didnt even get a name in her book. Maybe she thought Draven was cooler. The girl did say Tabetha had a lot of respect and wouldnt double cross them. I would bet money its the other two. She said those two caused a lot of problems with Draven and his wife and daughter. Tabetha did their hair and her exact words was that she would be too scared to double cross them.

It just doesn’t make any sense. How would those two even know who I am, and why would they give a sh!t what’s on my blog? The only one with an ax to grind is Tabetha. She’s the one that trolls blogs and has the most to prove because of her criminal shenanigans. It makes precicely zero sense for two strangers to hop onto not one, but two pages on my blog just to cuss me out and stick up for Tabetha. Nah. I think ole Tab’s trying to backpedal as fast as her feet can carry her, and cover her arse.

But. I’ll just say this. I feel sorry for whoever it was that did it when he catches up with her. I only wish that I could be a fly on the wall and watch.

She is friends with both and posts links to your blog. She hasnt in a few days but she has made it known for people to check you out. When her series got insulted it started then. Think about it. The series named after the obsession. The Carrie girl lives close to him. And is both a fan of Draven and Tabetha plus the series to boot. The doir girl said she left her husband for that dancer. She is one of the series buggest fans. The other one Michele is supposed just as bad. Carrie come to find out through a source is a writer Tabetha turned down. There is your motive. The door girl also mentioned she has copy and cut pictures of Dravens wife with her in the place. Keep me posted. I talk to the girl tomorrow and seeif she can get me a last name.

Off subject do you know abyone accepting erotic submissions that doesnt charge up front and has descent cover art. I just dobt want the hassle of self publishing.


9:22pm
JT Larson
So they’re fans of Tabetha’s books who obsess over Draven and they came to bug me when she told them to check out my blog because her books got insulted. That’s rather tidy. We’ll see.

No, I don’t know any publishers that are accepting erotica submissions. My advice would be to pick up a copy of Writer’s Market. They have publisher listings, agent listings, and they all give very clear details about submissions. Just come up with a good query, read the guidelines, and start licking stamps. It’s time consuming, and everybody gets a ton of rejections before they get picked up (Including Stephen King), but it’s the REAL publishing world. Not that crap that Tabetha peddles.


10:06pm

I just went back and looked at the post where “Draven” showed up. Nobody was talking about her books. “He” showed up as a distraction to try to divert attention away from the fact that I asked Tabetha for her lawyer’s contact information. Her books weren’t even mentioned. The first use of the word Draven was by the idiot that couldn’t spell Observer right, then slipped up and said that “he” doesn’t wrote all the time like “he” does in “his” books. I mentioned that he books were cheap smut. AFTER he showed up. So, no. That excuse about them showing up to defend her literary honor just doesn’t fly. That’s a nice try, though. I can’t wait to see what she tries next.

If Draven was contacted then why hasn’t he confronted anyone? Why hasn’t he called whoever did it out? I would. I would post it directly to that person. Carrie last name is Nikan. Not sure if that is her married name or not. But she left her husband for Draven. Supposedly he is married to some stripper. I talked to Tabetha asked her about wht name the series after him. She said the name was cool but Draven was too much of a man whore for her. She was dating or seeing another dancer at the time. He wrote a book about dancers. I don’t know if they were serious but she says he gave her the idea for the draven series. But this Carrie girl has everything draven on it and gets stalker psycho if anyone talks about him.

I talked to Draven today and he thought it was cool that one of his fans did that for him and Tabetha. In fact he knew Tabetha made the series for him. I spoke with my friend and then talked to him.

Also I asked my husband about your background check on Eric seems that was wrong. The one we have is correct and he did serve as a Marine deployed three times. My attorney stated Tabetha can register her company under her birth name married name or even her fathers name, doesn’t matter. it is registered. I did all this to show you that people can get information the right way. I am trying to help you out. Tabetha isn’t going to sue, I asked her. Eric said he wants proof posted on your blog of where you got his records then and only then will he confirm. I see a lot of talk but nothing else. I got my proof, sitting right here in my hand. Proof that Eric and tabetha emailed me today. I have his records her records and the company information on how it was registered. I want the truth thats all. She gave it up easily. I just asked nicely. i didn’t call her names or insult her. Maybe you might try it that way. You would look great and show them a thing or two if you posted your proof. So why not? Prove everyone wrong. That is what everyone is waiting for.

Sorry. I’ve got the screen cap. He posted, called her my name and laughed at her. Picture’s worth a thousand words, as they say. Your lawyer must be looking at the wrong guy, then. Because he didn’t make it through basic training, didn’t deploy and never trained as a sniper or recon. The amount of whitewash being splashed around is really pretty comical, though no surprise at all. If Tabetha and Eric mailed it to you, there’s your answer. It’s bull. I’ve already issued the statement that I’ll hand over my proof to her lawyer. If she wants to shut me up, that’s all she’s got to do: give me her lawyer’s contact information. Until she does that, she’s a liar. They both are. I don’t need him to confirm a singe thing. I already know. And anything he posts is going to be false anyway. Same thing with her an her ridiculous company registration. She can snow people but she can’t alter official records. Neither can he. They’re both just full of it. Of course she’s not going to sue. She can’t. I haven’t lied about anything. She can keep yapping all she wants, but until or unless she coughs up her lawyer, the whole world can see for themselves that she’s a fraud.

I see that she’s going by Henley now. Yet another name change, the same way she changed the name of her business to avoid the attorney general. She just doesn’t get it. You can just change your name and expect the past not to catch up with you. Either she’s that stubborn or that delusional. Either way, it doesn’t work that way. We are not going to stop calling her out on her fraud until she makes it right with the people she owes, and stops ripping people off. It’s that simple.

I apologize for taking so long to reply. I’m off doing business this weekend in the real world. If Tabetha tried doing that, on the level, legitimately, she might really get somewhere. She’s smart enough. She just needs to put her attention toward legitimate business and stop ripping people off.

The reason for the name change is I do believe she got married. That is usually what happens when you tie the knot. And i spoke with Draven and all that and he’s not concerned his post he made on his wall he explained was that he was happy Tab was making him famous with HIS series. He finds all this hilarious. I am not sure who talked to him but he’s not about drama. tabetha and Eric both have talked to him. And what screen shot are you talking about? And who called her your name? I am a bit confused on that.

He knew that the series was named after him, he gave her permission. He’s working tonight so I can’t talk to him but that post he made, was insulting you. He goes about it a different way. That was his way of saying unless its Tabetha talking to him he doesn’t care. Draven talks in code he does that because of his haters as he calls them. But the information I received is different. Thats why I need to know who contacted him.


3:29pm
JT Larson
Of course she’d like to think they’re working together in some way. In any way. But, like any other claim she makes, it’s delusional. Just like she thinks she’s proving anything negative about me. Just like she thinks that him naming her and laughing at her insults me somehow. She’s such a mental case, it really is pathetic. If she thinks she’s fooling a single soul with her delusional babble, she’s sadly mistaken. But there’s no convincing her of that, of course.

Its not what she thinks it what is all over her facebook page with them talking. She has known Draven I believe like 6 years. The other guys more than that. I am just trying to tell you what I know. Eric and tabetha both scanned all their proof over to me and my husband. I have his DD214 looking at right now. She isn’t hiding anything from anyone. My friend that is in the group said she put a a huge post about everything letting them all know it all how her company was registered and all. But I just want to know who contacted Draven so I can interview him myself again and figure this out. My husband is going to track the IP address and find out what is going on.

She can put whatever she wants all over her FB page. That doesn’t change the facts. Neither does whatever proof they fabricated to show you. It’s all rubbish. If he was enlisted at all, he’s got a DD214, even if he washed out of basic pissing his pants like a little girl after a few weeks. I never said he didn’t have one of those. I said he didn’t serve as a sniper/ recon on overseas deployment. He’s full of it. How thick does she think people are? She can SAY whatever she wants about how her scam company is registered. People can believe that nonsense if they want to, but that doesn’t make a word of it true.

Ask him who he talked to. He should be able to tell you. And who said it was over the computer?


8:41pm
JT Larson
And it seems she’s got plenty to hide, if she’s got me blocked from her page. What a coward, just like her lying boyfriend, talking shit about whoever they want, but blocking them from being able to see it. That’s pretty definitive right there.

I am just asking questions and you just don’t want to answer me. I will find out from Draven myself, going to text him now.


9:19pm

The only reason I’m not telling you who talked to him is because that’s their business. Not mine to tell. If they want the world to know, they’ll say so. I’m not being flip or sarcastic when I say “Ask him.” I’m being straight up. He knows who he talked to. By all means, text him.

Well I dont really want to bother the man more than he already has and I am trying to get to the bottom of things. I cant say why yet but everyone will be there when it happens.


9:25am
JT Larson
I must say, you’re very dedicated for someone that’s no longer associated with the company. Don’t worry. Someone will get to the bottom of his involvement. As a public figure, he needs to know how his name is being used so that he can act accordingly. If there’s some fixated whack job out there throwing his name around to further his own agenda, he’s going to hear about it. We’re already at the bottom of things. And everyone already knows Tabethat Renee Saulter Jones Henley is a liar, a fraud and a thief. Plain and simple. Every single day proves that more and more.

emerald
9:41am
Emerald Rai Fleurs
Draven gave her permission for use of his stage name and the rest of the dancers did as well. And yes I have a few tricks up my sleeve regarding this. I am dedicated to get the truth and get a few things settled because I will not be known as a fake or fraud. I am taking this to court and everyone involved will be there. And her name is Tabetha Henley, and Saulters is not her name any longer. If you had a valid background check you would know. You would also know her other married names, oh and I now have her birth name and her two adopted names. I also know that they way her company is registered is legal. I paid an extra 3500 to get it. My concern is this, if she is a liar and a thief I will expose her plan as that. Draven has his daughter right now and I am not going to keep ringing him up and getting info from him when you can help me bring her down by telling me who spoke with him either via email, text, or fb. I am doing this to put every document I have out in the open, including Erics DD214, all his background checks, tabethas background checks, and then see everyone in court so everyone can get paid.


9:48am
JT Larson
When we spoke, you said you were texting him. That’s not as invasive as a phone call. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind. He doesn’t mind speaking to us at all. He thinks the whole thing is rather pathetic and sad, her impersonating him. Not a word about allowing her to do so. Funny that. I know a LOT more about her than she wishes I did, including all her names. I threw out those few as an example of how many she goes through, that’s all. But no matter now many she changes to, no matter how many personalities she hides behind, she can not change the facts. She steals from people. She can’t hide from the IRS, and she can’t get around the chamber of commerce (which you can call for free). And there are other investigative authorities keeping close tabs on her activities. Yep. A LOT of people are looking at Mrs. Henley, right now, very carefully. And a few of us are looking forward to how it all turns out. We’re not going to get our money back from that thief, but we can, and we will, see her pay for it by facing the authorities. I only wish I could have a front row seat.

emerald
10:27am
Emerald Rai Fleurs
Why bother throw out names she has admitted several times how many times she has been married. When you get married you get a name change. And no I am not bothering him with a call or a text. Funny he never mentioned he thought it was sad or pathetic, he thought whoever did knew him pretty damn well cause he couldnt have said it better himself. He gave permission for her to use him for her books. She never posted on your blog as Draven. She lives in Waco not San Antonio. And I have her medical records as well and she is as sane as anyone. I have my ways of getting information. And you say he doesn’t mind speaking to us who is us? Because the way I heard it he doesnt give a rats ass about the blog or you. He just likes the fact his name is on her series. I have talked to the IRS and attorney general, and Chamber of Commerce and there is nothing and i mean nothing on her. So this is why I am getting an attorney to do the work and get this settled.


10:30am
JT Larson
Why does it bother you what I call her?
What attorney are you using? Perhaps I could coordinate with him, since nobody can seem to come up with the name of her lawyer. Funny, that. Most lawyers want to be contacted so that they can act in the better interests of their clients.

emerald
10:50a
Emerald Rai Fleurs
I can’t help you with her lawyer issue its herring and associates. And my attorney I paid close to 6800 bucks for him and so unless someone wants to cough up money then get your own. It doesnt bother me what you call her but we are grown and so I just think it needs to be done that way. But you are still not answering my questions. Why would Draven tell everyone else something other than what he said to whoever he talked to through you. Why not post the conversation, do a screen shot prove to her that you were right. That is one way to do it. I would. But I’ll speak with my attorney about you and see where he wants to take it.


11:09am
JT Larson
Because, obviously, someone isn’t telling the truth. As usual. And of everybody involved, we know who’s got the track record for that. Tabetha and her fake friends. What is it with people that don’t want their attorneys contacted? Makes no sense whatsoever. That’s what they’re there for. If you paid that much for the guy, let him do his job.

Okay, listen. The reason I can’t post conversations or screen caps is because it’s someone VERY close to Tabetha that’s telling me some of this stuff. Someone she would least expect in a million years. They’ve seen for years what she’s been doing to authors, and they think it’s wrong. They want to help set it straight in any way they can. Playing double agent and terrified of being found out. I promised to keep their identity secret, and I plan to keep that promise. The only way that information leaves my lips (or fingertips) is with a subpoena. I keep my word and I protect my sources. It will all come out. Don’t worry.

emerald
11:14am
Emerald Rai Fleurs
Then block out their name, dont show who told you but post it, show the world. Is it an ex author or a friend of hers? I know she doesnt have many friends. Double agent, that was me for awhile. lol. But what you and I talk about stays between us. I dont tell her shit. I keep my mouth shut and just listen to her run her mouth.


11:17am
JT Larson
For one thing, I promised. For another thing, I’ve already said many times that I’ll give everything I’ve got to her lawyer. When I get his contact information from her, we can get all of this settled. The ball’s in her court, not mine.

Nope didnt get an invite to the wedding. And Tabetha doesnt see anyone but Eric. She doesnt associate with female friends so she says. I imagine it was a good bash. I know several dancers were there her adopted parents and some bikers of her dads Bandidos or something. She got to ride up the aisle on her dads harley. Some pics were posted. She looked happy so did he. Then they did a pagan binding ritual. She seems excited. Shes been talking all about it.

What is that you want from her? I do know one thing my hubby asked around and since Eric was deployed three times and special ops and sniper all that on your blog can be prison time. I don’t think his Marine buddy would lie. Dustin is a stand up guy. I would just be careful. I would hate to see someone go to jail. And I asked tabetha why she wouldnt hand over her attorney info to you and she said that you would use it against her. She doesnt trust anyone. Especially after all the hateful names you have called her. She said there are ways to resolve this but you just keep calling her names like trailer trash and a whore or a skank. That is stupid. Both of you are grown women. She has showed receipts of where she paid people put it in the group. But my hubby’s friend said that the government had already been notified by Eric himself for both you and Janrae. I am not even supposed to tell you this. And I talked to Draven. He has no hard feeling with Tab they talk a bit. As well as Eric. He said he doesnt have any problems with her. Tabetha also said that she never had an interest in him like that. When he was dancing she was involved with another dancer. I could get in trouble for telling you this but thought you might want to know.

Tuesday


9:19am
JT Larson
I can’t go to prison for saying he wasn’t in the Marines as a special ops sniper. Because he wasn’t. HE can go to jail for saying he was. He’s the one that needs to be careful.

She won’t give out her lawyer’s contact information because I’d use it against her? What nonsense. Her lawyer is there to protect her against any such attempt. She’s the one using it against herself by not giving over the information. I understand that she can’t give it, because she doesn’t have it. The rest of the world understands that, too. The lawyer was a like just like everything else she says is a lie.

I haven’t called her a single thing she didn’t earn. Liar. Thief. Scam. Fraud. Not a single one of those is something she hasn’t done. Check your facts, hon. I’m not the one calling her trailer trash or any of that. If you want to talk about names, let’s start with the C word I keep getting called.


9:28am
JT Larson
Whatever receipts she’s shown are just as fabricated as her business’s registration info and his military record. People have been waiting for over a year to get paid royalties due them when Mystic shut down. They’re not beggars or abusers hounding her. They’re authors she’s scammed and robbed. Period.

The government’s been notified, all right. The IRS is looking at Tabetha and the DoD is taking a good look at Eric.

And I’ve seen texts directly from Draven that talk about taking her to court if she doesn’t stop dimpersonating him and other dancers. He didn’t give permission for any of this nonsense, and he’s pretty fed up with it. So, we’ll see how it plays out.

Whatever claims she maks about her interest in him, her actions tell another story. We’ve all seen her posts on his fan/groupie boards, and writing a smit-filled series about him doesn’t exactly scream platonic interests.|

Just like everything else she says and does, her words say one thing but her actions say another. At first I thought she was just a scheming liar, but the more time passes, it’s obvious that she really does have mental problems. I hope she gets some help so that she can have a better quality of life. And, more importantly, so that her precious little girl can, too. That’s who I keep thinking of in all of this. That there’s a precious little girl that’s living with a mother and step father that are so malicious, vulgar and cruel. What can it be like for that poor baby? I can only hope for that helpless child’s sake that mom and dad spend at least HALF as much time with that sweet little girl as they do lying, scamming, attacking and ripping off other people.

9:46am
Emerald Rai Fleurs
I have looked on Dravens wall and I hear he is working with her to go on a cover. Tab is a good mom I can say that. Everything is about her daughter. But the name calling on both sides is stupid. And Tabetha has a lot of dancer friends and she wouldnt dare cross them. I have been forwarded every text message and fb message Draven has sent her. He doesnt care nothing about other than its making him famous with his haters. Those were his words. So whatever he has said to you isnt what they talk about.


10:07am
JT Larson
A cover is the ONLY thing he’s given permission for. So, for once, she’s telling the truth about that. But the rest of it is pure fabrication. He’s not part and party to any of the rest of her nonsense. If she’s afraid to cross her stripper friends, she/they should probably stop impersonating them on my blog, then.

Again, about the name calling, until I hear some sort of regret on their part for calling an old lady the C word multiple times, they’ve got precisely ZERO room to talk about being called any names.

emerald
10:38am
Emerald Rai Fleurs
No the text messages he has given her permission for a lot. They talk like old friends. And honestly she may be stupid but shes not stupid enough to pretend to be them. I just think everyone needs to go their separate ways let her deal with the backlash.


10:42am
JT Larson
She’d like it we went our separate ways and left her alone so that she could get away with ripping these people off. If we stopped pointing out her fraudulent practices, she could keep right on getting away with them. Not going to happen. She’s stuck with us until she stops ripping people off.

As for her texts… like with everything else she says, it’s a lie. Straight up. Her little circle of friends might take her word for it, but I prefer to take HIS word for it that the only permission he’s given is for a cover. Not the rest of this nonsense, as she claims. He doesn’t talk to her like old chums, much as she wishes he would. He doesn’t talk to her at all. This is just another case of Tabetha skewing reality to suit her wishes. It’s not true, and no amount of bluster or sleight of hand can make it true. I’m not being cruel. I’m being honest. This just might be the lie that blows up in her face.


11:17am

I had a lot of respect at one point in time but this stripper crap is out of hand. I have talked to Draven and your stories dont match up. I can send u screen shots of his and Tabethas conversation but then it would just go up on your blog. I am still curious how it is you know all about Tabethas past life experiences. Draven knew her by a nickname not her real name. Also how do you know Eric wasnt a Marine. My husband is a damn good cop and can find out anything. And you say your worried about her daughter well how do you think her daughter will feel when she sees all this.

I do know for a fact Tabetha is going back to be with her adopted family in Killeen abd will probably get JAG involved for dishonoring a service man. And its a whole military family. And her mother Cindy doesnt appreciate it i do know that. Shes good friendscwith Draven too.

I am trying to give you a chance to make peace before things go crazy. Im just on the outside looking in.


6:52am
JT Larson
Draven is a real person, too, but he’s not the one that posted on my blog. I’ve seen Carrie’s profile, and I’m more likely than not to think that she’s a real person. Tabetha tends to give her alts lewd, smutty profile pictures. Carrie’s profile looks more like what a real person looks like. Yes, it would go up on my blog. But, as I don’t believe for a second that Tabetha talked to him about any of this, it doesn’t matter. Not under her real name, anyway. I’m quite sure her alts have had some lovely, wonderfully fictitious conversations with him. And all of it, all of these desperate lengths she’s going to, are for just one reason. To try and kick up a smokescreen so high, wide and dense that people forget all about what’s really at the heart of the matter: The fact that she. Is. A. Liar. She’s still not coming forward with her lawyer’s contact information. And she (et al) impersonated Draven on my blog. She’s been caught in lie after lie, and she’s trying to deflect attention away from it. Well, it’s not going to work. Sorry. I’m not wasting my time chasing down all these psychotic little blips of light she’s trying to throw in the air to throw people off her scent. I care about one thing only. Proving what a liar and fraud she is, and I’ve already done that. So she go ahead and frantically try and cover her ass all she wants, the truth is out there for the world to see. And they do.

I hope she DARES to try to drag the military into this. I AM a former soldier, all the way through boot camp, something Eric can not claim. MY family is a military family, full of people who really HAVE served their country in quite a few wars. We represent what he could never DREAM to claim. Honorable service. All he’s got is bluster and lies. If he/she/they try to drag the service into this psychotic little charade of hers any further, they will be reported to the authorities. Again. It’s a federal offense, and I’ll be very happy to see them charged with impersonating honorable military personnel.

If that lying fraud wants to make peace, she needs to STOP RIPPING PEOPLE OFF. She still owes people money that she never intends to pay them. THAT IS STEALING. I don’t know why she can’t get that through her psychotic little head.

SHE is the one dragging all these people into this psychodrama of hers, trying so desperately to cover her ass. Which isn’t working, btw. She’s responsoible for all of it. All I’m doing is writing it down. She’s the one putting it all out there. She just doesn’t seem to understand that she’s responsible for the consequences of what she says and does, not the people that call her on it. It’s not my fault that she’s a lying, thieving, psychotic scam artist just because I write it down. It’s hers.

She’s the one with the power to make it all stop. Not with all this bullshit and bluster. But with retribution. All she needs to do is pay people what she owes them. It’s that simple. And she truly and honestly needs to knock it off with these ridiculous alts. She’s the only one that thinks they do any good. Nobody’s fooled, hon. Nobody.

Worse than the alts, she pulls real people like Draven and now this Carrie chick into HER drama, using them to try to cover her ass about this lawyer thing with selfish disregard for how it might affect their lives. Does she not see how utterly selfish that is? Or does she just not give a shit about anybody but herself? Either way, it shows what a truly reprehensible person she is, with total disregard for anything but what she wants.

She’s a miserable excuse for a human being that I never did have any respect for. If you knew me at all, you’d know that I truly try to find the best in people, that I’m willing to give people the benefit of the doubt for being human and making mistakes. But she has shown from the start that none of these machinations are mistakes. They’re the actions of somebody that doesn’t care about anybody but herself, and there’s nothing about that that I can respect.

I’d be the first to sing her praises if she came clean, dropped the alts and paid people what she owes them. Us. But she’ll never do that. She’s too deeply embroiled in her lies to accept responsibility for them like a mature adult. She doesn’t think she’s doing anything wrong, because it’s what she wants to do. And there’s a word for that. Sociopathy. She’s one sick puppy. And instead of admitting that and getting help, she revels in it, thinking it makes her clever or cunning, superior in some way. It doesn’t. All it makes her is sick and despicable. As long as she keeps on like she is, she can expect to keep on getting called out for it.

The ball’s in her court. it has been for some time. She can either step up or deal with it, or she can keep on trying to kick up a dust store to try to cover her ass, which is never going to work. Either way, it’s HER RESPONSIBILITY. The sooner she learns that, the better off we’ll all be.

Now that’s a few hundred words I should have been writing in my book, which is due out before Christmas. Some of us really are serious writers, and I’ve got real work to do.

Have a nice day.

I dont know. But some of the people you think are fake are real and not Tabetha. Take Sky Wicker Draven personally knows her. Met her. Anna Lovelace is Emily Carlie an Christina are two different people. And not that I am defending her but everything she writes isnt smut. I write smut. Of course she says she owes no one anything. Artists have been paid and royalties are being paid. I wasnt around for the past and whoever got hurt I am sureits upsetting but how long has this gone? I just wish bothparties could findpeace. I hate conflict.

And her family including Eric are Army and Marine and her adopted mother is very highly upset. And plans on getting the military involved. I cant give away my source but they know the family and are a part of Phoenix. If she unblocks you might want to check out her adopted mom and dad. They arent happy with these blog posts.


6:07pm
JT Larson
How long should people hang on to the past? Until they freaking get paid. Until then, she’s a thief.

I have no doubt that real people are involved. I also have no doubt that she’s lied and manipulated them into thinking whatever she wants them to, just like I’ve said.

If people are upset with these blog posts, they need look at only one Person. Tabetha. As soon as she coughs up her attorney’s contact information, we can set the record straight about Eric’s honorable service to this great country. Ball’s still in court, just like it has been ever since I asked for her lawyer’s contact information.

Instead of simply giving it, she comes out with all these alts, all this bluster and manipulation, involving real people who deserve better and desperately trying to cover her tracks. Why? Why do all of that when she could simply give out that contact information?

Because she hasn’t got it, that’s why. Like her business, his service record, and what she’s done to other authors, it’s a lie. She got caught in it and she’s trying to bullshit her way out of it. She can’t.

Maybe her family should check Eric out a little more carefully if they believe he served as a sniper in recon on deployment. They might be pissed off at the wrong person, me, for telling the truth. Maybe they should get a little pissed off at HIM for lying about it.

How soon would you let it go if someone not only stole from her, but crushed part of her soul by telling her that she wasn’t good enough and made her question doing what she dreamed of? How quick are you to let it go when somebody hurts your baby girl? Do you shrug it off and say, “Oh, well. It’s a lesson learned.” Or do you hunt the culprit down and hound them until they make it right? Imagine your little girl being treated the way mine has been, then tell me when I should let Tabetha off the hook.

I dont have kids sorry, but I was raised this way, at a certain age you fight your own battles. Mommy doesnt do it for you. And I should have never spoke to anything to you because you went right back and ran your mouth on your blog. I don’t appreciate that. Which was kind of a test just to see if you would twist my words and use it to your advantage, which you did. I think I have found all the answers I need here. You are the one that keeps things going. you are the one that won’t let things go. Tabetha says nothing about you, any of you. And as far as Draven he fooled you too. I do hope the military gets involved. I hope this gets settled. And I hope I am the fly on your wall. I tried to be nice and civil and you went back and twisted it all. Maybe I set you up, maybe I played double agent. But I am done with all this bullshit. Wish you the best. But if your daughter is grown let her fight for herself, quit bullying people for her and let her learn to do it herself. Mommy wont always be there to fight for her. Give it up. I won;t be responding to you any longer.

Hon, I didn’t twist a thing. I just let somebody out there know that they’re being played for a sucker.

We both know very well what’s been going on here. It was just a matter of time before you figured you weren’t as clever as you thought you were. Tabetha does indeed say things about us. She says that we ripped her off, we scammed her, and we need to let it go. She lies about us, and she lies about stealing from us. She says we need to move on so that she can get away with ripping us off. Sorry, hon. It doesn’t work that way. You don’t get to call it done just because you want it to be. People will move on when they aren’t being stolen from anymore, and not a minute sooner. It would have taken a simple return of my daughter’s investment and we would have been done with it. Instead, she invited every word of criticism she gets. So, until she’s ready to make it right with each and every author she stole from, she can buckle up and enjoy the ride, because that sham publishing company and all her lies are going to stay under the microscope.

And if there’s ever a time in your kid’s life that she doesn’t think she can count on you to have her back, more’s the pity for her being stuck with you as a mom. You screw with my kid, you screw with me, and you’re stuck with me until you fix it.

Dont have kids wouldnt know about that and I would appreciate you removing your blogpost about me. I shared things with you in confidence and where do you get off saying Im someone Im not. You expect people to respect you but you give none. I will not be accused of being a fake.

We matter have a difference of opinions but I offered to call you. To.prove myself.

ButbI am asking nicely to remove the post. Out of consiferstion of my family and the officers mynhuns works with. It had already gotten back to them.

Not gonna happen.

  1. There is SO much more running commentary I could add about what was going on at the time, but I think most of you are pretty caught up with her impersonating Draven on my blog and trying to cover it up with her alts – and one, poor misguided friend she lied to through her teeth to get them to come do her dirty work for her.
    I’ll just let you enjoy her pathos for yourself.

  2. There were so many inaccuracies there and conflicting mentions and just general bullshit that it stinks ugly. There are never any people with normal names in Tabetha’s world. That’s fascinating.

    • One of the falsehoods that she put forth is that you are unavailable to contact. That’s rubbish. I’ve always been able to contact you if I had questions or anything. You’re one of the most available people I know.

      She contradicts herself so many time’s it’s laughable. Like the post by Draven where he laughs at Tabetha. First, Emeral insists that it never happened. Then, when it’s proven that it did, she tries to spin it around by saying “Oh, they were in on it together to mock you (me).”
      She honestly believes that if she doesn’t like one reality, she can simply substitute it with another, and she expects everybody to accept it without question just because she says so.
      Sorry to tell her, but the real world doesn’t work that way. Reality doesn’t revolve around her whims.

  3. Not only do I find this disturbing but rather sad. For a woman that preaches about professionalism you lack the sense to show any for yourself.

    Unfortunately I am going to have to disagree with you. I find all this nothing but crap. You are clearly doing everything in your power to make you look like the better person but each point you try to make only makes you look like a stalker.

    From made up accusations to fabricated lies you have quite the imagination. You obviously don’t know up from down or your ass from a hole in the ground.

    You point fingers at Ms Jones yet answer nothing in response. She and Eric have both asked for proof on several issues that you popped off at the mouth about but all you do is post an old military photo.

    If I recall that was never asked for. You danced around everything anyone has asked you for. Why? Because between rattling off your next tightly woven piece of shit of a story that is nothing more than a lie and plotting out your next big move you have forgotten what it is you’re supposed to be proving.

    Now I’m not an author. I am a fan, a reader that has seen this going on for sometime now. I think it is a sick mess that could easily be stopped.

    I think that for a woman of your age you should know better. Shame on you. Be the bigger person but instead you only add fuel to the fire. You continue this roller coaster ride of bullshit with revolving yourself around them.

    You attack her, her authors, the dancers, and people who you do not know a thing about. It is almost as if you have nothing better to do than keep this going.

    You have really pulled out all the stops when it comes to making Ms Jones look bad. You will stop at nothing. You don’t care that you are hurting innocent people. You don’t care about nothing but yourself. You will make up countless lies and fabricate as many stories as you can so you can look like you came out on top.

    I imagine during your plotting and outlining for your next big lie it never occurred to you that maybe just maybe Ms Jones has actually been up front and honest. That her own blog post about her past was honest and truthful.

    Instead of trying to talk to her woman to woman and get the facts you would rather discredit her honesty and hardwork. What if she has been through all those things? That would make her a survivor and women who have been through that and lived to tell about deserve respect.

    I purchased her poetry book which was a raw portrait of the life she lived. Yet you mock it and mock her never trying to understand her.

    Possibly the reason she hasn’t given you the attorneys information is because she wants it over. I havent seen anywhere on these blogs where she has posted. And as I have seen on several anytime she makes a post she uses her name. Why would she need to do under an alias?

    Here is my theory. You have it out for her so badly that maybe you’re setting her up. Maybe you made those posts as the dancers to cause a world of hurt against her. Maybe you have fabricated conversations with th so called alts. Why would Ms Jones give you all that personal information under an alt? Do honestly believe that she would do that?

    Do you honestly believe people think you are telling the truth? Those in your inner circle might but people outside that, like me, see right through it. I see a bitter woman that is only out for her own gain.

    If Ms Jones has hurt anyone I am sure they are adults and do not need you fighting for them. I understand one was your daughter but as a mother myself I have taught my children to defend themselves.

    I would be ashamed if I had to battle for my children when they were over 18.

    The authors she has signed with her company now all seem to be happy if not they are grown adults and can take care of themselves. If an author decides to sign with her what business is it of yours? It only shows that you have nothing better to do with your time but watch her every move. Have you sought out therapy for these issues? It seems as if they are severe and medication might be needed.

    You pass judgement on this woman as if you have been given a free pass to do so. Do you ever think of the consequences of what your words and lies have done? Of course not. You don’t care about her or the damage you’re causing her family.

    I am taking a look from the outside so to speak. And the view from where I’m standing isn’t a pretty one. Why is it so hard to believe that she is actually speaking the truth? Why do you make it your lifes work to find new ways to try to make her look like such an evil person when all you’re really doing is making yourself look bad.

    Haven’t you got your fill? Doesn’t matter that she is actually a pretty good author. Just because you dont care for her storytelling and books doesnt mean others dont.

    In the end you are just a bitter lonely woman that has devoted herself to a lost cause. I could have easily just kept this to myself but I think the more people speak out against you the better. I think that your trickery and games have gone on long enough.

    Use that active imagination for something besides fabricating lies and scandlous stories about a woman you know nothing of. She has shown her proof and tried being honest and gets mocked for it.

    There is only one that is allowed to pass judgement on others and the last time I checked you were not the heavenly Father.

    • You lasted longer than I thought you would before you came storming over here with some silly new alt to defend yourself. Congrats. Those meds must be kicking in.

      I didn’t attack the dancers, I defended them against being badly used and impersonated. I’m not suprised you wouldn’t appreciate that, considering your comment pings back to the same IP “Observor/Mr Shadow” used to do it from. How long before you try to blame that on some other fan again? We’ll see.

      Do I expect anybody to believe that I’m telling the truth? Frankly, yes. Everybody but you, babycakes. You’re the only one that thinks (or desperately wishes) that it weren’t.

      I haven’t plotted a single thing or fabricated a single lie, and you know it. You wish I’d shut up and go away so you can sweep it all under the rug and keep getting away with it. The only trickery and games going on here is all of these ridiculous posts from aliases sent over here to defend you. Each one only confirms every single word I’ve been saying.

      I honestly don’t care what you’ve been through. I had a rough childhood too, but I don’t go blathering about it to gain sympathy. I let my character and my work stand on their own merits based on who I am now. That’s how I judge you: on what you do now, and what you’ve put these people through. The authors you’ve ripped off, whose dreams you’ve dashed, the artists and editors you still refuse to pay. THOSE are the innocent people getting hurt here, and YOU are the one doing it.
      Yes, I do have a free pass to judge you. You gave me that when you hurt someone I love, and when you ripped me off as well. You have only yourself to blame.

      If you’re so concerned with what effect all of this might have on your family, you probably should have thought of that before you scammed people. And you should probably think of that every day YOU allow it to continue, by continuing to refuse to pay people what you owe them. YOU allow it to continue every day you refuse to provide your lawyer’s information. Let him do his job, hon. It’s not up to me to make all of this stop. Just like all of the rest of it, it’s YOUR responsibility. Own up to it. Fix it. Make it right with the people that you’ve wronged, and maybe then you’ll have the right to talk about putting it all behind us.

      Hon, if you really were a pretty good author, you’d at least be able to come up with original insults. I’ve been saying for months and months that you need to get help. To turn it around and try to zing me with it? Kinda lame.
      If you were such a virtuoso with a keyboard, maybe you could figure out how to not make all of your alts sound exactly like you do, with the same wordage, syntax and agenda, just like your characters. But, hey. If that’s the kind of writing your readers are after, more power to ’em. They can have it. But when you show up on my blog and pull that nonsense, you can expect to get called on it.

      I do have lots of better things to do with my time and my imagination, thanks. I finished 1,500 words on my new book today, 1,000 yesterday, and 2,000 the day before that. I don’t know how many I’ll finish tomorrow, but I can promise it’ll happen before I waste any more of my time laughing at you.

    • Oh, woe is me, my lies are out for all to see! Sorry, Zoey-chan, but it ain’t flying. Mum’s put her proof out there before in the form of screenshots. Wait, those were photoshopped, right? So why haven’t you had your mysterious lawyer sue Mum for libel? (Wait, does libel cover photographs and other images? I’ll have to look into that!)

      If you haven’t noticed, Zoey-chan, I have stepped up to defend myself many, many times. However, the more vocal you are in your own defense, the thinner that defense becomes. I’ve spoken of how you took my money for services you never rendered before. I will speak of it again and again, but only where it is warranted or asked for. I will not throw those words out lightly, for the more often they are spoken, the more they lose their power.

      At least I know my active imagination was gotten honestly. I can’t wait for the day my novel, Trust, leaves your gasping for breath in the depths of obscurity. It’s available now, in case you wanted to go put your greasy mitts over it. I’ll accept an honest review, but only if it is warranted.

      That’s not your modus operandi though, is it, Zoey-chan? You’ll downrate my novel simply because I had the gall to publish, and it wasn’t under your boot. I welcome being proven wrong… but until then, I can account for every sale my book has had.

      To borrow one of Mum’s phrases, the ball is in your court, dearest Zoey-chan. Show us yours and we’ll show your ours 😉

      • No, baby girl. Your words do not lose their power when repeated, for they are the truth. Tabetha’s defenses pale upon repetition because they’re fabricated out of flimsy textiles: lies and bluster.
        She ripped you off. No matter how many times you say it, those words remain true.

        We already showed ours. It’s all up to her.

      Why should we care what your opinion of us is? You’re no one special.
      “Unfortunately I am going to have to disagree with you. I find all this nothing but crap. You are clearly doing everything in your power to make you look like the better person but each point you try to make only makes you look like a stalker.”
      There’s nothing unfortunate about it. You are a nobody. You, Tabetha, are the stalker. No one invited you to my blog a year ago.

      From made up accusations to fabricated lies you have quite the imagination. You obviously don’t know up from down or your ass from a hole in the ground.
      We have proof. You have empty words.
      You point fingers at Ms Jones yet answer nothing in response. She and Eric have both asked for proof on several issues that you popped off at the mouth about but all you do is post an old military photo.
      The onus is on Eric to offer proof, not the other way around.
      If I recall that was never asked for. You danced around everything anyone has asked you for. Why? Because between rattling off your next tightly woven piece of shit of a story that is nothing more than a lie and plotting out your next big move you have forgotten what it is you’re supposed to be proving.
      How about you prove it?
      Now I’m not an author. I am a fan, a reader that has seen this going on for sometime now. I think it is a sick mess that could easily be stopped.
      Oh, yes. You’re (snicker) one of Tabetha’s legion of fans with a second grade reading level
      I think that for a woman of your age you should know better. Shame on you. Be the bigger person but instead you only add fuel to the fire. You continue this roller coaster ride of bullshit with revolving yourself around them.
      Lep and I were minding our own business when Tabetha started it all up again with the Nikki Palomino bullshit and then kept on going
      You attack her, her authors, the dancers, and people who you do not know a thing about. It is almost as if you have nothing better to do than keep this going.
      No one is attacking the dancers. Just the eejits leaving comments. Oh, and you ought to take a course in logic in order to make logical statements.
      You have really pulled out all the stops when it comes to making Ms Jones look bad. You will stop at nothing. You don’t care that you are hurting innocent people. You don’t care about nothing but yourself. You will make up countless lies and fabricate as many stories as you can so you can look like you came out on top.
      Again, you are the one making it all up and assuming that we give two shakes of a dead dog’s cock about your poorly presented opinion
      I imagine during your plotting and outlining for your next big lie it never occurred to you that maybe just maybe Ms Jones has actually been up front and honest. That her own blog post about her past was honest and truthful.
      Why would you insist that we believe you when you have no credibility and no creds period.
      Instead of trying to talk to her woman to woman and get the facts you would rather discredit her honesty and hardwork. What if she has been through all those things? That would make her a survivor and women who have been through that and lived to tell about deserve respect.
      I purchased her poetry book which was a raw portrait of the life she lived. Yet you mock it and mock her never trying to understand her.
      Tabetha does not know the first thing about being a survivor. I was trapped in an abusive marriage with psychopath for 15 years. Tabs had a little spat and left him.
      Possibly the reason she hasn’t given you the attorneys information is because she wants it over. I havent seen anywhere on these blogs where she has posted. And as I have seen on several anytime she makes a post she uses her name. Why would she need to do under an alias?
      Bullshit on the attorney stupid. If she wanted it over, she would have stopped the alt attacks and never started the game with me and Nikki. If she wanted it over she would give us her attorney’s contact info instead of just waving it in the wind at us like an eejit
      Here is my theory. You have it out for her so badly that maybe you’re setting her up. Maybe you made those posts as the dancers to cause a world of hurt against her. Maybe you have fabricated conversations with th so called alts. Why would Ms Jones give you all that personal information under an alt? Do honestly believe that she would do that?

    • There is only one that is allowed to pass judgement on others and the last time I checked you were not the heavenly Father.

      You’re forgetting the Attorney General; you know, the guy that was contacted about Mystic press and the reason that you changed your company’s name to Phoenix Fire. And the IRS. And whatever municipal and Federal court judge you end up standing in front of. And the 12 that eventually deliberate. Hon, your actions illegal invite a whole legion of people to judge you.
      And, yes. If you believe in a heavenly father, you’re going to have to stand in judgement in front of him one day, too. What will your excuses be then?

      • Like so many idiots on the internet, they do not know what the word ‘sad’ actually means or how to apply it as grammar. I’m pagan, so in a wrestling match between Jehovah and Odin, I’ll bet on Odin.

  4. I do know for a fact Tabetha is going back to be with her adopted family in Killeen abd will probably get JAG involved for dishonoring a service man. — Emerald Rai Fleurs

    ROFLMAO. There are so many things wrong with that.

  5. I have to ask Emerald (in case she’s reading this) why she was still posting weeks after she claimed that she would turn over her account back to Tabby “within 48 hours.” The numbers don’t add up, as well as many other things. But, for now, let’s just go with the numbers.

  7. Update:

    As of June, 2016, Tabetha Jones has no publishing companies in operation that we know about, so our investigation of her has been halted. The point of examining her in the first place was to advocate for authors that reported no royalties and other related abuse from her. If she’s not involved with publishing anymore, that job’s done.

    The posts about her remain in public view in case she starts a new one in the future.

    If more publishing concerns about Tabetha Jones (Willis, Farmer Hoover, Saulters, etc) – AKA Zooey Sweete, Emerald Rai Fleurs, et al – arise in the future, we will post relevant updates. But for now, we’re focusing on happier topics.

    Peace.
