We already know that one of Tabetha’s favorite tricks is to funnel money through Paypal so that it’s harder for the authors (and the IRS) to keep track of. How handy, since money skipped around on Paypal can be spent straight from there without ever having to see the light of day.
But let’s not forget about Ebay.
If you’ve ever published any material through Tabetha’s scam company, take a moment to type your name into a search box on Ebay and watch what happens. It’s very likely that a book with your name on it is being sold on Ebay. We saw this a little while ago with Beth Wright’s book. And it looks like the same thing is going on with the rest of you.
Here are listings from names no longer affiliated with Tabetha Jones or Phoenix Fire.
It looks like most of them are bing sold through sellers named Grandegleretail or Buy.
Georgina Merry – The Ferryman’s Wife 2 listings
Cindy Franks-White – Through my eyes
Melina Turner – Beautiful disasters
Her current authors are being sold through Ebay, too, in case they don’t know about it either.
Jennifer Oneal Gunn – In the shadows of Darkness
Jaimie Hope – No less than 22 listings for her various books. Where do you suppose the money for those is going?
If your name doesn’t pop up this week, check again next week. They seem to rotate in circulation.
And, while you’re at it, look up the anthologies you know you contributed work to. It looks like your names are being taken off of the author listing, while your work might still be inside. You might want to discuss that with your former publisher.
There’s no way to directly PROVE that Tabetha’s behind it, but here are two very important things to consider:
1) The money for those books is going SOMEWHERE. And I’m guessing that it’s not into the author’s pocket.
2) How many of you have been told that none of your books sold any copies?
If none of your books sold any copies, where are these sellers getting them?
Is Tabetha still selling your books behind your back and making money off of your work, without you so much as knowing about it?
Just some thoughts to ponder.
