No, not the Jenner transition. The news is already doing a fine job of covering that.
No. The transition I’m talking about is the one “Dark Storms” is going through.
Then along comes Haelsamoht (Leah Thomas, aka Leah (LD) Hutchinson) insisting that she’s not taking over the company. She’s just offering the authors a new home. Honest!
Isn’t that the same thing “Destiny” said when she opened Dark Storm?
Yeah. We’ve heard that story before.
Yet here comes Leah, raging back with a whole SLEW of posts, first insisting that she’s ignoring this blog, then swearing that she’s not taking over DSP. It’s a whole different company, different names, different contracts, different everything. Even the DSP website, blog and FB pages are gone, to PROVE that it’s a real change. Not just a whitewash. Only the authors will be the same, she says. And we already know that most of them are figments of the owner’s imagination. So, will all of those alts show up at the “new” company, too? With all of the same old books?
Hon, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and swims like a duck, it’s a duck.
According to Leah, we’ll see the “new” company in a week or so. And we’ll see how closely the company, the roster and the structure are the same. My bet says that it’s the same old song and dance. Same company, same structure, same authors, same everything. Just as contrived, just as crooked. With Tab very much still pulling the strings (from wherever) and still profiting from the same kinds of scams authors have suffered through in the past. The only real change will be that some new patsy is willing to put her name on it and take the heat for it.
On one hand, I want to feel sorry for Leah. WE all know what’s coming her way, but she hasn’t the first clue. She knows that Tab’s crooked, yet she’s still willing to be complicit in this “transition” scheme, but she doesn’t know Tab like we do. She doesn’t know that before this whole “buy my company” idea came about, Tab already knew what she planned for Leah.
Let’s not forget, Tab tried the same thing a year or two ago, when the thought Jacqueline was willing to pose as a “buyer” for the company, citing “investor interest” in Phoenix Fire. Jackie was smarter than that, though, and never went through with it. But it looks like Tab found somebody young and naive enough to follow through this time.
We’ve warned Leah not to put her name, reputation, and maybe even her freedom in the line of fire to cover Tab’s ass. But she seems to think, for some reason, that she’s immune to what we all now is coming.
I can only repeat myself: Leah, walk away. RUN the other way. Save yourself from the clutches of that predatory sociopath. If you continue down the path you’re on, there’s a whole world of hurt ahead for you. And I don’t mean at the hands of this blog. Whether you believe it or not, we’re here to help. We’re here to try and stop you from making the jump from being complicit in HER schemes to becoming fully, legally liable for all of them, past and present. You think we’re attacking you, but we’re trying to help you.
If you’re somebody that cares about Leah and you’re reading this, talk to her. Make her understand that she’s at the crossroads of a potentially life-shattering decision. If you care about her at ALL, Help her make the healthy one, the one that won’t leave her battered and maybe even legally trashed. Help her save herself from a very, very bad life choice.
More to come, soon.
