Duck, Duck, Goose

Yesterday, I wondered in a comment what a certain scam publisher would be up to that she feels the need to misdirect our attention by winding Little Nikita up on the end of a string and setting him off to spin. And I have a few thoughts about that.

First and foremost, I have to think that she’s up to something regarding PF. She’s been stuck with that albatross hung around her neck for the longest. The average shelf life for a publishing company with her is two years. It’s been longer than that since she changed the accounts over from Mystic Press to Phoenix Fire. I don’t say “since she closed Mystic Press” because she didn’t. She, herself, has admitted that all she did was change the name on the accounts. Illegal much?

She’s TRIED a couple of times to change it again, but we’ve caught her and she had to back off. First, it was some “investor” that was arranging to buy the company and keep her on “as the face of the company.” Remember that? We nailed her to the wall with the details, and she was forced to back off that ruse.

Then she tried to switch over to Silver Fang, but we tripped her up on that, too. And Jacqueline was smart enough to get away from her, so she lost that stool pigeon, too. She didn’t have a partner to blame for the company’s demise any more. What’s a scam artist to do?

Enter two new people.

First, there was little Nicky. The two of them were all set to team up on some shady project. But that fell through. They couldn’t settle on the details. Translate that to mean that he wanted to do things legally and she is simply unable. Even his psychotic ass can see through her illegal bullshit.

Then, most recently, comes her first ex husband. I can only imagine how that came about. Never mind that he’s got a wife and kids. Here comes his ex, dressing modestly for the first time in, like, ever, playing the little woman and mother of the year. Being the slutty whore in the bedroom and pretending to be the perfect little woman out of it. Whispering sweet nothings into his brain and promising him the moon. He leaves his wife and kids, moves in with Tab and settles down with his new happy little family.

I speculated that the objective was to get a house out of him, then stick him for the tab by painting him as the abuser all over again. Then she gets to keep the house and make him pay for it. Not a bad scheme, if she can pull it off.

But consider who we’re talking about, here. It’s entirely possible that her scheme is broader than that. What if she got him to sign on as her new partner? THEN she can paint him as the abuser again. What a perfect scenario for her! She can not only blame the demise of her company on him, but she gets to be the ultimate victim, too. “I trusted him with my heart and my business, and he shattered both!” Just imagine the flood of sympathy she’d get! She could ride that wave of sympathy and support through the next two years of whatever she calls the next company, plucking the heart strings of her victims with her sob story.

I can see it, already. And the sad thing is, it’ll probably work. Most of her victims are good people who want to believe the best in people. The good-hearted kind of people that would go to the wire supporting a friend. The kind that believes their boss lady who “busts her ass” to “make their dreams come true.” And how dare all these former victims of hers attack her with their “hate” and “lies”? Don’t they know what she’s been through? What a brave survivor she is, standing tall and reaching for her dreams.

Hang on a sec. I’ve got to go take a Dramamine.

Even if the new/ex gets wise and dumps her flabby ass to the curb, she’s still got Nikita she can try to sucker into being her patsy. Hell, she might even try to “sell” her company to him and blame HIM for it when it folds. Wouldn’t be the first time she tried to pass the company off in some bogus sale, would it?

She says that Phoenix is doing just fine, thanks. But we all know better, don’t we? She’s not only looking for ways to ditch it, she’s DESPERATE to. With a new company, she can sucker more people. With the current one, all people need to do is Google her and find out what she’s up to. At least with a new company, under a new name (Zoey? Emerald?), she can scam people, at least for a little while before she switches it up again.

She’s got something going on. No doubt about it. If she’s got to resort to setting Niky off like a whirling dervish for the misdirection, I guarantee you, she’s poised to pull something.

Get your popcorn ready, boys and girls. I have a feeling something’s about to hit the fan.

  1. Your slipping as a stalker Lep she already said she’s selling her company. You sure know her number though that’s for sure. You know her to well.

  2. DANG, Lepp you really are slipping. So again it is more than proven that Tabetha is lying. Just by her own page alone. If you were the “stalker” she claims, wouldn’t this have been brought up quite a bit before now? She is always scheming and trying to make herself look better. Maybe a washcloth would be a good start. I have noticed a few things that have been going on, but for now will remain silent. Something is afoot that is for damn sure. Just wonder who’s close enough to her to take the heat on this? We all know she doesn’t go down easily, well I will change that, when it comes to her scamming she doesn’t go down easy.

    • I have a couple of notions, too. But I’ll let her slip up and hang her own self.

      I wish I could find the post when she said some mysterious third party was buying the company as an investment and keeping her on as “the face” of the company. I’d link to it. If I felt better, I’d troll my own blog to find it. That sounds exactly like what she’s trying to pass off now. I wonder who would be stupid enough to get in bed with her, literally or figuratively. Somebody real who’s that stupid? Somebody she’s making up? Or somebody who’s real but has no idea she’s using their name? That last is a tactic she’s used more than once.
      Let’s see how this plays out.

  3. Me thinks you are slipping Lepp dear. LOL You aren’t stalking her page like she claims. Shame on you. All valid points. I have my popcorn ready.

    • I KNEW she was up to something shady when she sicced itty bitty Nicky on us as a distraction. It’ll be a flop, as usual. But if it’s something that takes her out of the literary world, I’m all for it. She can go be this sought-after “plus size” model she claims everybody under the sun is BEGGING to photograph. Or she can run off and be the happy little housewife. She can do any damned thing as long as she’s not scamming authors. But we all know better, don’t we? So, whatever she calls her new company after she blames whoever she’s setting up for ruining the current one, we’ll be there to call her on it. If she thinks she can just waltz into a new company and start scamming authors again without her reputation catching up with her, she is sorely mistaken.

  4. Concerning Little Nicky: he has written several times that Tab is writing a story for his anthology. And get this: he’s rejected her story several times and made her rewrite it. On one of his blogs he says: “I am toying with the layout of the second namesake and one of the authors has a hard time convincing her friends she wrote the story so she gave me her legal name to work with. I was asking for this since 2011..”
    You have to wonder if he’s referring to Tab!

  5. 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.
