I was updating my profile information on Goodreads a few minutes ago, and it occured to me to take a quick glance at Zoey Sweete and Tabetha (Hoover) Jones profiles. I’m glad I did. I found something interesting.
As we all know, ZOEY SWEETE IS TABETHA JONES. She likes to treat the two of them as if they’re separate people, but they are, in fact, both Tabetha (Hoover) Jones. And it looks like she’s been so busy being America’s next super-plus sized model that she’s neglected to update her many, many online presences.
Under both names, there are a lot of the old anthologies still advertized, still displayed as if they’re current works. That’s a no-no.
These books contain the names of many authors that have defnitively severed ties with Tabetha (Hoover) Jones, many of whom vehemently do NOT want their names associated with hers in any way, shape or form. The books might have been removed from Amazon, but there they still are on Tab and Zoey’s respective Goodreads profiles.
Here are some of them:

There are also books that we all know were originally published with content from authors that are no longer with her – only those names no longer appear on the listing. Books like Beautifully Broken, which now only displays Zoey Sweete as the author.
Here’s a list of books credited to Zoey Sweete with various and assorted titles that you might want to look into if you were once published by Tabetha (Hoover) Jones, any of her fake names, or any one of her dubious “companies.” Check to see if your name is still on books that you pulled out of.
I don’t know if you’d rather talk to her about pulling your content, or contacting Goodreads directly. Or if you’d rather just press charges for fraud. But if you’re one of the many that have disassociated yourself from Tabetha (Hoover) Jones, and no longer want your name associated with hers in any way, you should check to make sure it’s not.
Also, Google yourself. A lot. Make sure that not only is she still using your name directly, but also that your books aren’t being sold by any mysterious “third party” sales where the vendor isn’t named.
It’s your name. It’s your reputation. It’s your career. Protect it with diligence.
