How does a book that was (re)released only a few days ago, without the content of an author that demanded to be removed, have a publication date that throws back to March 11th?
And how is it that the paperback version has 14 authors, but the “new” e-book have only 10?
Chunks of missing content and that many fewer authors, that sounds like a major change. And yet, there it is, released with the same publication date and ISBN as from March 11th. *tsk tsk* That’s a no-no.
It doesn’t look like that new “manager” and her business degree are helping shape things up at Dark Storm at all. Maybe “business management” is a completely different thing that PUBLISHING. Just because somebody’s got a diploma in business management, that doesn’t mean they know the first thing about how to publish books. So all of those protestations about helping Tab “fix” the company amount roughly to a fart in the wind. From the look of it, nothing’s changed.
The print version of WE has been yanked so that a writer’s content can be removed.
One can only wonder. When this one comes back on the market, what will be in it? The same 10 authors as the e-book? Shuffled content? More fluff from more alts? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
The good news, here, is that an author got away from Tabetha Jones and MP/PF/DS. Here’s hoping the rest of them catch wise and do the same. The real ones, anyway. I’m sure there will forever be a plethora of alts in Tab’s stable, just like there will forever be some mystery man observing, waiting in the shadows, dreaming of a time when he can be with her, just raring to rush to his soul-mate’s defense on the blogs. When they’re not beating her up or threatening to put a bullet in her head, that is. No, none of those things ever happened, of course. But she hysterically insisted that it did, in front of one author, and in front of her 7 year old daughter. It’s no wonder that author has chosen to leave. I can only hope that other authors are looking, so they can do the same.
Run, authors. RUN!
