Catch and release

I hear that Tabetha is still trying to tangle authors up in her ridiculous “release” procedure, negotiating with them about the terms of releasing their work since they’ve chosen to leave her. She’s hanging them up and refusing to give their work back until or unless they meet her demands and sign her paperwork.

I cannot stress it enough. Authors, you do not need to sign her release papers in order to get your work released. She doesn’t own your rights. She never did. You own your work, and if she refuses to give it back to you, it’s theft. DO NOT let her hang you up in any negotiations. Do not allow her to continue to exert any more power over you and your work. Demand it back under threat of legal action. And if she still refuses, follow through. Call her local police and the Texas Attorney General to report the theft. Turn her in to the feds. She does not have a legal leg to stand on when it comes to keeping your work, and she knows it.

What she does have is years of practice jerking people around. She’ll haggle about the release forms and refuse to give your work back until they’re signed. And she’ll kick up a dust storm of gossip, lies and bullshit between authors. She’ll tell lies about one to another, then tell another lie to cover that one up. She’ll tell one that another author is still under contract and doesn’t want to leave PF after all. She’ll tell another that one of the others is talking shit about her. She’ll tell yet another an entirely different story.
She’s trying to do several things:
1) Control you.
2) Hang onto your work.
3) Pit you against other authors so that you don’t come together to support each other. That way, she’s got a better chance of luring you back into the fold.
4) Isolate you so that you can’t compare notes with each other to add up to the truth about what a scam she really is.
5) Keep you from succeeding on your own. She doesn’t want you to do well. If you flop, she might be able to get you back.
6) Most importantly, she’s deflecting. The more attention she keeps on drama, the longer she keeps your work, and the longer she profits from it.

DEMAND YOUR WORK BACK. Allow no deflections, and permit no negotiations, It’s your work. Demand it back under threat of legal action. And if she still refuses, follow through.

Take away that wretched fraud’s power. Do not allow her to control you for another minute. Not with her paperwork, and not with her drama. Demand your work back. And then give her exactly as much attention as she deserves: NONE.

  1. I am NO longer with Phoenix Fire! I am with Silver Fang Publishing LLC with my Co owner Sabrina Samples!

    • Hell yes! So for certain people who think they can tear Jacqueline and me apart by spreading silly rumors. Maybe this will shut you up. Go try with someone else because we aren’t going anywhere!

  2. She’s a busy girl -telling all these lies, trying to get those authors back and all the while preparing to put out her book about that stripper club.

    • Having spoken to somebody at La Bare, I hope she does publish it. I really do. Karma’s already catching up with her, but it would be sweet, sweet icing on the cake to see her publicly humiliated for releasing a book she doesn’t have the permission for. Maybe even sued for all she’s worth.
      That would be justice, indeed, since all she’s worth has been stolen from all of you to begin with.
      Is it the 27th yet?

  3. Your a fucking hippocrite BITCH. Your so obsessed with Tabby all you do is give her attention. You couldn’t ignore her if you tried CUNT so just sit back and watch her get famous why all you can do is jerk off cuz you can’t get a man. Get a life CUNT.

    • The illustrious backwoods tramp returns. To what do we owe the pleasure of seeing your horrible mishaps on here. Please share with us why the bitch your protecting is worth trying to save. Don’t worry we will wait for your sorry ass excuser of an answer.

    • This is so amusing, I hardly know where to start.

      No. I can’t jerk off. I don’t have the plumbing for it.

      And I do have a man. I’ve been happily domesticated for more than twelve years. Unlike some, I know how to treat a guy with dignity and respect. We have something a scheming, abusive sleazebag like Tabetha never will: a healthy relationship based on mutual trust.

      And, yes. I could ignore Tabetha. The instant she’s no longer in a position to victimize authors or scam people out of money, each and every post on this blog about her will disappear. My lips will never have to endure the bitter taste of her name nor my restless brain the torment of her memory.She will cease to exist, and I will happy forge ahead without even the notion of her.
      Just watch. It shouldn’t be long, now.

    • Well well well, my delicate eyes. What pathetic words from a desperate loser. I mean really tabby cat is scraping the bottom of the barrel, to have such an eloquent “cof” lady on her side. Such conviction and colorful language. I am just wondering exactly where she learned her vast language skills. Was it from the tabetha jones school of writing? Because If so BRAVO, you have succeed in showing us all what a piece of trash tabby cat really is.As if her actions weren’t enough. I commend you dear butcher of words for showing us just how low class you and tabby are.

  4. Oh here we go. Miss Badass Biker Chick sends her dumbass sister to voice the only insult word they know between the two of them. She can’t even defend herself! She can only try to play victim while stealing money!

    • Exactly. She can TRY. If there’s still anybody that falls for that lame duck routine, they won’t for long. Not when she’s convicted of being a fraud. I just feel bad for the people that remain loyal to her. She’ll throw them under the bus to try and save herself. And if that doesn’t work, she’ll drag them down with her. And chances are, they won’t even see it coming because they believe her when she says they’re a family.

  5. Ya know it is pretty damn amusing that in the past few posts we have not heard from Tabetha. I wonder if she knows she is fucked and knows nothing she says will do any good. All of the people she had defending her before are the ones providing the information now. Maybe she knows that we have the proof to show how much of a lying, thieving wretch of a woman she really is.

    • She doesn’t care about proof. Even though the very people she’s scammed are the ones telling the truth about her, she still thinks she can scheme her way out of anything. Well, she can’t, and she’ll find that out pretty soon. I only hope somebody has a camera out taking pictures when that knock comes at the door.

  6. I hear there’s even more gossip flying around from the Jones camp, still trying harder than ever to turn former authors against each other. I’m glad to see the authors laughing it off as the ridiculousness it is. She’s such a joke, still trying so hard to pull people’s puppet strings. What she should be doing is TRYING to get her legal ducks in a row, because that knock on the door is coming. Soon.

    • She cannot come up with a different insult or a creative one for that matter so she has to spin a web of shit to see if she can get those others fighting to deter the attention away from herself…. honestly I know it as the abuser tactic not someone against abuse but the one doing it…when you are an abuser
      then isolating your victim from others is the start do
      to the fact the victim theb has no one to turn too and thought process of they will stay and take the abuse. (Fyi…I took college courses)

      • She displays all the characteristics of an abuser. She lurs her victims in with sweet promises. Then once she’s got ’em where she wants ’em, she isolates them and fills them with a false sense of family. She schemes and manipulates to keep them under her control. Then when they inevitably find out that they’ve been scammed, she does everything she can think of to hang on to them. When that doesn’t work, they become her enemy and the REALLY abusive side comes out, scheming and shifty as ever.
        No. She’s not the poor, long-suffering victim she claims to be for sympathy. She’s the abuser. Just ask anybody she’s ever known.

  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.
