Tabetha Jones on Kickstarter

Nutbag Nicky and Tabetha Jones (Hoover, Henley, Willis, Saulters, Olejnick, whatever) have teamed up to create a Kickstarter project to fund their collaboration on the Sinister Souls anthology. There’s a video of Nicky blithering incoherently on that page. So I must hereby absolve myself of any IQ points you lose, should you choose to watch it.

They’re looking to take in a goal of $4,300.00 . As of right now, they have zero pledged by zero people.

Just for giggles (or guffaws, if you’re as amused as I am), let’s look at what they’re asking for, why, and what they’re promising as rewards for anybody who donates.

First and foremost, it bears note that Nicky wrote the project up, and he’s nearly as illiterate as Tabetha, and a whole legion more insane. So reading the proposal is an adventure in and of itself. It’s disjointed, at best, and rambles on and on about everything from taking stabs and the people he hates to what a whiz he is with pencil and paper.

What they’re asking for ranges from art supplies so he can hand-draw the book cover to – well, that’s about the only physical thing he lists on the page. Mostly, he tries to align himself with people that have never heard of him by using their names, from Dio, to Alice Cooper to Rod Serling, and more.

Rewards range from him recommending movies he likes on Amazon, to a hot dog date with himself. For $90 bucks or more, you get to “prank” some poor guy. So, basically, you’re paying Nicky for the honor of committing a crime. What fun. Suffice it to say that nothing he’s asking for or promises in return makes any sense whatsoever.

I could go on  and on about Nutbag, but instead, I’ll throw it over to The Rusty Nail’s post on the Kickstarter subject. They’re more well-versed with Nicky and his extreme oddities over there. While you’re there, be sure to read the latest post about him as well, where he’s trying to get people to buy him socks and underwear through a wish list on Amazon.

The purpose of this post is to detail Tabetha’s involvement.

Even though Nicky claims that he’s running the project at Tabetha’s behest, and drops her name a LOT, it looks like he’s doing the whole thing. He’s got his city slotted as the location for the project, and he’s the one accepting submissions, creating the cover, and doing the publishing. So it looks like it’s all Nicky, right?

Tabetha could, if she wanted, blink innocently and say that she knew nothing about this whole thing. Honest!

Except.

The reward for a donation of $300 or more is that you get a phone call from none other than herself. AND, you get to meet and hang out with her.

Probably at her favorite strip club. And I’m pretty sure you’ll have to pay for everything, on top of the $300 you paid for the privilege in the first place.

Enjoy, folks. I know I’m going to.

You’re welcome.

  1. Nick’s videos keep getting worse and worse. Just when you think they cannot get darker, or Nicky any more incoherent, bingo! He proves you wrong. He’s deteriorating, along with whatever very basic Adult Human 101 skills he may have once possessed.

    As for this ridiculous Kickstarter? With or without the involvement of Tabetha Jones, it will rake in what all of Nick’s fundraisers do: $0.00.

    • I’m not being funny or snarky when I ask this, but what is wrong with that guy? His speech is incoherent and barely decipherable. Does he have a speech impediment? Or is he on medication? Seriously, what’s wrong with him?

      • From what I’ve read, he likes to chalk it up to his “Chicago” accent. Which is utter bs on several levels. I assume it has something to do with medication and/or mental deterioration, but I don’t really know. I do know that, in the 1 1/2 years I’ve been aware of him, his speech in his piss-poor videos has gone downhill. He’s become increasingly difficult to understand, and he wasn’t exactly stellar to begin with.

      • Haha, you mean to say that you don’t buy it when he says that it’s just his Italian American “Chicago” accent? Remember: he even speaks fluent Google Translate Italian!

      • Um… no. I don’t buy it for a second. “Slurred” doesn’t even sound CLOSE to “Chicago.” Sorry, dude. Not buying it.

      • I’ve unfortunately known him for about 15 years. It is getting worse, and I suspect it’s a combination of deterioration and medication (as in, only taking it when he thinks he should.) IMHO, it’ll only get worse until he gives himself a stroke.

  2. Ok, this is how I feel about being in the company of Tabetha I have too many last names to count fucktard. The only way I would want to be in her company outside of what I have previously stated is if my life depended on it to induce vomiting. Whore yourself much Tabetha? Who on their right mind would think a call or time spent with you is worth 300 dollars?

    I would rather spend that to avoid you at ALL cost. Are you fucking kidding me??? What do you need money to pay for that upcoming special day? OH, I Understand, the dress you picked out for the Wedding Is going to cost so much more because of your massive ass, and of course you can’t afford it. No more suckers to leach off of.

    I am willing to bet that the cost “they” are trying to raise is about as much as the intended upcoming nuptials. Any takers on that idea? Give up Tabetha, you are a loser. Come on even before your new grand announcement JT already called it. As usual always walking in someone else’s shadow.

  3. Whoa, WHOA, there. That douchebag did NOT just name me. At 1:34.
    He says that I’m critical of anthologies and anthology authors. No I’m not. I’m critical of publishers that use anthologies to scam authors. That’s a very different thing.

    I’m also critical of self-loathing homophobic douchebags that don’t have the first fucking CLUE about how to publish anthologies, or anything else, who throw around the names of people he wishes he was, along with the names of people who call him out for being so clueless.

    If said douchebags don’t like getting called out for being douchebags, they should stop being douchebags.

    • Yet more proof that Nickolaus is constitutionally incapable of doing anything–be it a blog entry, social media post, video, or even a supposedly professional Kickstarter campaign–without mentioning and maligning other writers/publishers (all of whom are better than him) that he considers enemies.

  4. Leather bound book? Hey cheap skate, take your crazy ass to the dollar store and get you a doodle pad. If your writing is any indication of the level of social skills and mentality, they may give you a free one and some crayons at the mental institution. Hell might even get you a nice helmet. I thought Tabetha was a joke now I am not sure which one is more unstable.

      • ….which no one will ever buy – not even family members should he get hit by a bus while crossing the street…

  5. I must say I am surprised about 1 thing even though the mouth of the south sent her puppet to flap their guns, she has remained silent. Is it possible she has learned that her lies are always found out and shown the light of day? Or is something more sinister afoot?

    • She’s too busy planning her wedded bliss. *SMH*

      She’s up to something. I’ve heard whispers about her oh, so clever (or so she thinks) plan, but I’ll let it play out so you can all see it for yourself. This might just be the worst train wreck yet.

      I’ve also heard about what she’s got going on on the side. Naughty, naughty!

      And all the while, the fishbowl grows smaller…

  7. 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.

    Peace.
