My reply was pretty straightforward: I don’t care.
Honestly, I couldn’t care less what she does with her camera. Or her tongue. We all know that she’s a tacky, tasteless ho-bag. My primary concern was to expose her as a fraud publisher for the world to see, to stop her from being able to victimize authors far and wide who have no way to seek justice against her. I’ve done that, thanks to the bravery of her victims stepping forth and telling the truth about her.
If she wants to victimize and abuse local customers, more power to her. She’ll find it a little harder to brush off refund requests face to face when local customers discover what a no-talent hack and fraud she is.
She’s trying to sneak back in on the publishing world under the radar, quietly publishing some poor new sap’s book on Christmas – and spending most of the day trolling this blog to see what I had to say about it. Sorry, but I spent my day in the company of loved ones celebrating the Holiday, not trolling around online like a certain fraud I could name.
I chatted with that
authorvictim in the recent past about what a fraud she is, and showed him all the reasons why he shouldn’t publish with her, but he went ahead anyway. Oh well. He can’t say he wasn’t warned. When payday rolls around, months from now, and he gets more excuses than royalties, maybe he’ll realize that he should have taken heed after all. If not, it’s no skin off my ass. It’s his money to lose. If he doesn’t mind handing it over to a scam artist, that’s his choice.
I spent lot of time this year on Tabetha and her shenanigans. I’m not doing that this coming year. I’ve got my own projects that need attention, and they’re going to get it.
Sure, I’ll still advocate for her victims. I know that even though the BBB has her number, she’s trying to cover that up by joining other organizations, and who knows? Some victims might fall for it when she tells them that the BBB was “lied to” and that membership in other organizations makes up for it. They can’t say they weren’t warned, either. They’ll find out, just like this poor guy she published yesterday, that she’s a fraud, ripping them off and lying to their faces. And when they do, they’ll have to decide how to get away from her. It’s on them. They’re grown. They make the choices and live with the consequences.
I’m making my own choice: not to spend all my time on the undeserving waste of skin that is Tabetha Jones.
Some days there just aren’t enough face palms.
The only gag going on around here is that reflex in the back of my throat when I think of anything Tabetha Jones says or does, whether it’s some new batch of tacky porn photos or yet another abysmally horrible job she’s done (not) editing or (badly) publishing some poor sap’s book. Either of those is good for a bout of acid reflux.
There’s no court order making me shut up. And if there were, I’d wipe my ass with it.
She’s back up to her old tricks, conning authors and cranking out her masturbatory “anthologies” to rip people off with. At this point, all I can do is shake my head. If authors are so eager to see their names in print that they don’t take the time to Google the publisher they’re thinking of working with, there’s nothing I can do about it. We’ve put the information out there. All they have to do is look. I feel bad for those that are poised to fall victim to her conning, scheming, thieving, abusive tactics. I really do. But sometimes, I guess people just have to learn for themselves. The hard way. And, with her, they will.
She still charges authors up front.
Even though Amazon pays every month, she still makes them wait for quarterly payments.
When the quarter rolls around, they’ll still get pennies of whatever their book really earned, if anything.
When they realize they’ve been conned, they’ll try to leave.
She’ll tell them their contracts are binding.
If they insist, she’ll make them pay an early separation fee.
Even after they leave her, they’ll still find their books for sale, with her getting paid, not them.
Some of them will be so scarred they give up writing all together.
And not a single one of them can say we didn’t warn them. All I can do is tell them what a fraud she is, and remind them that their contracts aren’t legally binding when they finally see the truth and decide to walk away from her. They still might not listen, but at least I tried.
When I say I’ve got better things to do, I mean exactly that. I’ve got a book project coming out this year that I’m really excited about. It’s been far too long since I had a book published. My next book is socially relevant, and I hope for the best with it. Unlike Tabetha, I write actual books, not Mary Jane spank cranked out in a week that has to be double-spaced in order to fill up pages. I wish I could say more about my upcoming project, but it’ll just have to wait. Hopefully, it’ll be worth the wait. If not, at least it won’t be for lack of honest effort. That’s more than she could say on her best day, since she doesn’t do anything honest.
No, boys and girls. There’s no gag order. There’s only the real world that I plan to spend more of my time in. She can suck eggs, if there’s a hen that’ll have her.
