Anybody remember the name Alex? Back when Tab was pretending to be La Bare strippers here on this very blog? For those of you that weren’t around at the time, Tab pretended to be her favorite stripper, Draven, jumping on the blog to defend his (girl)friend and buddy, Tab. The real guy was less than happy to hear about it.
During that impersonation, s/he threw the name Alex around as the owner of the club with ties to the Russian mafia, trying to intimidate us, giving us an email (Russianbear) and DARING us to contact him.
You can read those posts HERE and HERE.
And here’s that name again.
Alex is also one of the fake names she assigned to he sister’s fake online girlfriend, Sky(lier) Wicker(son). But since we all know the latter doesn’t exist, I’m wondering if she’s hinting that the big sale she’s hinting at is coming from the owner of the club that Tab has glorified in her delusional erotic fantasies since she was old enough to sneak in and stalk the poor guys that work there. Draven, particularly. And the names Gill and Destiny? At least one of those sounds like a stripper to me. Anybody know if those are dancers at the club?
It’s one of two things.
Either the poor sap really is buying into her company, or she’s using his name, yet again, to further her own agenda.
I doubt it’s the former. Those people are sick to death of hearing about her shady ass. Last year when she tried to publish her fictional “memoirs” based on her imaginary experiences there (including graphic tales of sex with her beloved Draven, which never happened. Just ask the guy), she was forbidden from publishing by the owners of the club. SHE said she had the club’s full cooperation and support. The club owners curtly replied differently. She doesn’t have permission to write about the club. Nobody does.
If that’s what she’s hinting at, does she really expect folks to believe that the same people are now in negotiations to buy into her company? Really?
I think it’s far more likely an example of the latter. I think she’s using people’s names again, to create a scenario whereby she has somebody to blame for it when the deal goes bad and her company goes under. Their fault, of course. Then she’ll be able to start up whatever new publishing company she plans to use to
publish scam new authors with.
She’s really trying to work it, isn’t she? She’s DESPERATE to find a way to dump Phoenix and all the baggage that goes with it. Just look at her, trying to resurrect the same exact “investor” scheme she tried to pull last year. And the nonexistent deal with Jabberwocky where she told all her authors that the agency was going to pick up the whole company.
Sooner or later, she’ll find some poor sucker to pawn the blame off on, and try to create some new publishing company to further her scams. And we’ll be right there to shine a light on it so that no new people have to fall victim like so many people here have. It’s scam artists like her that give indie publishing such a bad name.
