Absolute Write (MacAllister Stone) . . . is it ran out of a rental storage unit? Are Authors Paying the Rent via Google Ads?

McAllister Stone, the primary “officer” at Absolute Write and a defendant in the Bauer vs. Glatzer case  appears to have listed her residence, in the lawsuit brought against her by Literary Agent, Barbara Bauer as 8911 Vernon Rd., M-#165, Everett, WA 98205. Information obtained by The Write Agenda appears to indicate that what she has listed as her residence — is in fact a storage unit at Frontier Village Mini Storage! What say YOU Ms. Stone?

“An Author site/blog using Google ads to generate revenue from authors probably isn’t anyone you want to read.”

Blogger Get’s it Wrong: Amazon Sales Rankings are Valuable Metrics if Benchmarked over Time

“Uh, the Amazon Sales Ranking? That completely useless metric of book sales . . . . In other words, it means nothing. It’s a hourly popularity contest. If someone buys 100 copies of my book, my Amazon ranking will shoot way up for that hour then fall again.”

 -      From an Author’s Blog

The author of this quote (above) would like readers to conclude that The Write Agenda is “wrong” regarding its use of Amazon Sales Rankings. However, in fairness, it is true that Amazon Sales Rankings are updated every hour. Also, Amazon Sales Rankings are only one benchmark in measuring the success of an author and his/her book(s). We’ve never claimed that Amazon Sales Rankings are the exclusive resource; it’s a valuable tool and nothing more.

The Write Agenda’s use of the Amazon Sales Ranking data is not an hourly process. The data is measured over time (weeks and months) for consistency to establish a history for a particular book. For example, Author Anna Mara’s Her Perfect Revenge, published by Outskirts Press, was listed at #1 on our Author Watch – Best Sellers List for 12 weeks straight.  The Amazon Sales Ranking were: 81, 82, 86, 81, 107, 190, 228, 271, 334, 472, 572, and 961. In addition, Author Anna Mara’s Her Perfect Revenge, while no longer at #1, has continued to remain on the Author Watch – Best Sellers List since that time and consistently performs within our guidelines. Dr. Laurence B. Brown’s The Eighth Scroll, published by BookSurge Publishing, was #1 six (6) times.  Moreover, there are numerous examples of other authors books that are consistent performers on our Author Watch – Best Sellers List. We would also be remiss not to mention that many of these successful authors, to the dismay of Writer Beware™, are in fact published by entities listed on their so-called “Thumbs Down” list. The significant difference here is that 100’s of books are being sold beyond the “hour” window. In the spirit of Yog’s Law, money is flowing to these authors . . . as it should. The difference is that they have written good books that people want to read.

 We find it ironic that the author of the quote above would even make such an intransigent statement as this. Upon a cursory review of this particular author’s book sales data we discovered, as expected, some very dismal sales data. A book that he published in 2002 has a current sales ranking of 10,269,826 with one (1) 4-Star review. There was a subsequent book, published in 2004, that has no sales data available or any reviews. Therefore, it appears unlikely that his Amazon Sales Rankings will change anytime soon. Unless, of course, “[if] someone buys 100 copies of [his] book.” Just as bad spellers always say that “bad spelling has nothing to do with intelligence,” bad authors with bad books will always say: “Amazon Sales Rankings are a completely useless metric of book sales.” These comments were posted by this author with the intention of defending Victoria Strauss (see Victoria Strauss Critical of Indie Authors Successes: The Voice of Envy). Victoria Strauss has continued to downplay the significance of Amazon Sales Rankings as well. While many view our Boycott List as an opportunity to boost their book sales, the placement of Victoria Strauss on our Boycott List has not improved her Amazon Sales Rankings. Again, this is historical data and not an “hourly” measurement of Victoria Strauss’ Amazon Sales Rankings:

 Let’s take this opportunity to review the Amazon Sales Ranking metric once more. Again, Amazon Sales Rankings are only one of the numerous benchmarking tools.  There is a logical mathematical equation that proves that there is more validity in actual science (and proofs) versus mere rhetorical and salvation-based opinion. The equation can convert the Amazon Sales Rank into the actual number of sales on a weekly basis. The formula is:

Sales/week = e to the power (10.526-(.87*sales rank)

To put this into an Excel spreadsheet: =EXP(10.526-(0.87*LN(rank)))

This data has been actually vetted by four scientific studies that reviewed 1000’s of various titles. In addition, the authors of these studies found a direct and predicable relationship between the Amazon Sales Rankings and the actual Ingram sales data. In conclusion, Amazon Sales Rankings are a valid benchmark to measure and predict your book sales. Don’t be convinced by rhetorical statements, ignorant conjecture or opinions when scientific evidence is readily available. This is science not Science Fiction. Amazon is the world’s #1 online bookseller.

P.N. Elrod Claims Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers (SFWA) Has Hackers: Cyber Crime Incitement?

In Accountability, Author Watch, Authors, Credibility, Crime, Cyber Crime, Hackers, Incitement, Intimidation, Investigations, P.N. Elrod, police investigation, police investigators, Professionalism, Propaganda, Reputation, Reputation Management, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association, SFWA, Watchdog, Writer Beware on October 25, 2011 at 10:17 pm

P.n. Elrod: I find it hilarious that they call for honesty and disclosure, yet won’t own up to their own names. They know they’re being libelous and open to litigation. Too bad for them. There is no privacy on the Internet. If the people they’re trying to smear–that includes me–REALLY wanted to go after them it wouldn’t take ten minutes for one of our hacker friends to bust them flat. Newsflash, Write Agenda: SFWA is full of computer-savvy geeks who love a challenge .”

- P.N. Elrod, Facebook Page

We find it less than “hilarious” that Author P.N. Elrod would encourage (or suggest) members of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) to actively engage in cyber crime. The mere suggestion that  the “SFWA is full of computer-savvy geeks who love a challenge” and would only need “ten minutes” to hack an account should be taken as a serious threat by all concerned parties. Moreover, while P.N. Elrod is not an officer of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA), she readily waves the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) flag on behalf of the “computer-savvy” “hacker friends” that are apparently salivating for an illegal cyber “challenge.” We would certainly love to know whether this potential incitement (to engage in the active violation of both state and federal laws) is endorsed by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association’s (SFWA’s) President, John Scalzi and the other officers.

What say you, John? It is exactly these kinds of postings, from your members, that only serve to embarrass the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) further. While we have engaged in criticism of your organization and some of its members (albeit satirical at times), we have neither encouraged nor suggested that our followers violate state and federal law. P.N. Elrod’s comments are over the top and will rightly cause interested parties to perceive the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) as a potentially subversive organization. Mr. Scalzi, it’s time to man up, get your house and membership in order before the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA) really gets in predicament where a real “investigation” is conducted.

We will take this as a credible threat and accordingly will share it with the appropriate authorities.

American Book Publishing “Investigation” Research Released: No Proof of Victoria Strauss’ Claims

The Write Agenda has not questioned the fact that Writer Beware has helped numerous individuals over time. They have without question. Somewhere along that positive history something has run afoul. The claim that “American Book Publishing has been the subject of at least one police investigation” is a primary example of how Writer Beware has forgotten its original mission and responsibility to provide true information.

Our demand, to force and compel Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware to produce substantiation of their claim that America Book Publishing “has been the subject of at least one police investigation” is hardly intimidation. So, authors, publishers and publishing industry professionals are just supposed to take Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware for their word? Without substantiation? Without verifiable proofs?

The real “intimidation” is the fact that Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware have posted this information, refuse to delete it and refuse to provide documentation that proves the claim. This is neither a grand jury investigation nor an investigative newspaper report. Both of these examples are not entitled to the protections of confidentiality and would be not be deemed privileged information; not to mention the fact that Victoria Strauss is not a professional investigative journalist and would not legally be permitted to claim these privileges to protect herself. The Write Agenda’s request has nothing to do with protecting police investigators. Police investigators could not remotely be claimed as “sources” as Janrae Frank would have you believe. Think about it, don’t individuals go “to” the investigators? Don’t “investigators” write police reports? Isn’t it not true that police reports are assigned incident numbers?

Contrary to Janrae Frank’s unfortunate “smoke screen,” the information contained within any “police investigation” is subject to discovery, available under the Freedom of Information Act, has an incident number and is not subject to any protections under the law (assuming that it actually exists). The fact here is that there never was a “police investigation” conducted against America Book Publishing. Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware know this and they cannot produce 1) an incident number; 2) what was American Book Publishing Investigated for; and 3) the name of the investigating police agency. This is true “intimation” and a it’s scam that has been perpetrated by Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware. Now, Janrae Frank has made the personal choice to attempt to deliberately cloud this further; that’s very unfortunate.

Janrae Frank, who is a well-respected American journalist, knows for a fact that “police investigations” are subject to discovery under the Freedom of Information; it is the most commonly used tool of any investigative reporter. Considering that Ms. Frank chose  to weigh in here, without any appreciation for the actual facts, it appears that she is more interested in participating in this viral controversy as a means to help her slumping book sales. Self-serving conduct? It appears to be. Her current Amazon Sales Rankings range from 315,555 to 3,405,977.  As an industry standard, an Amazon Sales Ranking of 100,000 equates to 1 copy every 5 days; 2,000,000 equates to 1 copy every 1000 days. (We’ll track this and see if her strategy works.)

Bottomline: A police “investigation” is not subject to non-disclosure privileges. The Write Agenda has contacted all of the agencies listed below. You will not find in any of their correspondence to us that “a good journalist learns early is to protect their sources” or that they were concerned that “if those names were made public, then the complainants would soon find themselves under siege from ABP.” The entire claim that “American Book Publishing has been the subject of at least one police investigation” is a lie and a fabrication perpetrated by Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin and Writer Beware. The letters from these agencies may be viewed here.

If there was a “police investigation” wouldn’t The Write Agenda have received something from one of these agencies that stated the information is protected and not available under the Freedom of Information? Fact: The Write Agenda did not . . . most of the replies clearly state that there is no documentation of any “police investigation.”

Police agencies seek the truth and from our research, they have accomplished that. They have given The Write Agenda proof that American Book Publishing was never the “subject of at least one police investigation.”

Clearly Janrae Frank chose to utilize propaganda strategies (Ad hominem and Red herring) in her confutation. For example, instead of rebutting the original complaint (i.e., Author, Victoria Strauss’ Failure to Produce Documentation of Police Investigation Regarding American Book Publishing) she is attacking us instead rebutting the original argument. Also, she is presenting new issues (i.e., the Freedom of Information Act) in a compelling fashion, but it is irrelevant to the question whether Author, Victoria Strauss Failed to Produce Documentation of Police Investigation Regarding American Book Publishing. She somehow seems to think that this validates or implies that we are misleading people.  (Note: She has also posted on Twitter that: “The Write Agenda has gone after me.” We fail to see how this amiable debate has escalated to that level.)

There’s no need for Janrae Frank to “school” us any more on the Freedom of Information Act. We all understand its purpose regarding public records as they apply to legal actions. However, in this instance we are dealing with a “police investigation” not a legal action. The application of the Freedom of Information Act is irrelevant and further discussion about it is an act of obfuscation. Admittedly, it was a very noteworthy review but really serves no purpose regarding this issue.

Transparency is all that we have asked for. Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware are responsible for making the initial claim that “American Book Publishing  has been the subject of at least one police investigation.” Merely posting this on a blog is not proof that  “American Book Publishing  has been the subject of at least one police investigation.” Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware have not been transparent in this regard. As a result thereof, we have sought to make this claim transparent by contacting the agencies within the jurisdiction where the “police investigation” allegedly occurred. When documentation and research fails to uncover evidence of a “police investigation,” transparency is impossible. The ongoing acts of denying, deferring and dismissing, by Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware, can no longer continue; it impedes the quest for transparency.

As self-proclaimed publishing industry “watchdogs,” Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware are ethically responsible to produce this evidence. What is dreadfully transparent is that their failure to do so only serves to call into question their credibility. This could be easily accomplished by providing primary source material of a “police investigation.” This would include: 1) the name of the investigating police agency; 2) supplying an incident number; and 3) state exactly what America Book Publishing “investigated” for. The failure of Victoria Strauss to provide this information lends itself to a meaningless claim and doesn’t support the necessity of challenging other disputed claims; that’s another issue. If the three (3) questions above cannot be answered, this “investigation” has to be deemed a falsehood that was conceived with other motives. Transparency will only occur when this evidence is provided. The sooner this happens the matter can be resolved and we can all move on to other issues. If it cannot be supplied, Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware would be well advised to begin using some different PR strategies; denying, deferring, inciting followers and dismissing these accusations aren’t working:

1. Fess up.

2. Have some “humble pie” and display some remorse.

3. Strive for atonement and clean up this mess they made.

4. Rehabilitate themselves, restore faith and trust by utilizing objective (not bias) reporting standards.

The Write Agenda is striving to bring this matter to a close. If we have been incorrect in our pursuit for transparency, we’ll gladly take our own advice publicly (1-4 above). We all want transparency, if this cannot be achieved this matter will stay in the forefront and will continue to be a blemish on Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware.

10/10/2011 Update

Yes, we have claimed that your discussion of the FOIA was both Ad Hominem and a Red Herring. No, we have not invoked FOIA as proof of any claims here or on our website. What we have done is completed document searches and posted the results thereof. Our act of posting these letters from the agencies cast doubt on the veracity of the statement of Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware that “American Book Publishing was the subject of at least one police investigation.” Our only statement is that we cannot find any evidence of a “police investigation.” We are not going to rely solely on an unvetted blog posting as proof that a “police investigation” occurred. Regardless of what methods are deployed to secure information in this matter, if evidence does not exist “that casts in doubt the veracity” of the statements made by Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware.

Now you appear to be making a similar statement without documentary evidence to back it up. To wit: “ABP was investigated in 2003 by the Salt Lake City police department. The detective assigned to the case was Robbin Wilkins.” Your act of merely reciting a statement from a blog posting is also not definitive proof of an actual “police investigation.” In addition, since you have chosen to take on the chore of “investigating” this matter further, this suggests that you are now questioning whether evidence of a “police investigation” exists yourself. This is a positive step; we could only wish that others would be as inquisitive. What is most ironic is that this proves that you are not willing to solely rest on Victoria Strauss’ statements including: 1) she doesn’t have an “obligation to ‘prove’ anything;” 2) that she stands on her “reputation for honesty and meticulous research; 3) that she is willing to simply  “let people judge for themselves;” and 4) that you are not satisfied solely with her confidential “documentation [that] includes emails from individuals as well as [her] handwritten notes of the phone conversations [she] had with both investigators” as proof of a “police investigation.”

We are actually flattered that you have the courage to take the time to be objective. However, it’s distressing (and unfortunate) that you have to pursue information that should have been made available by Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware. We wish you well in your endeavors. We also pray that your efforts reveal the existence of a “police investigation” with a corresponding incident number. In the event that your efforts are inconclusive, we also hope that you have the resilience to publicly admit it.

10/14/2011 Update

After going into great detail regarding your skills as a journalist, we would think that you would have posted primary source material to “speak for itself.” Attaching a blog posting from a disgruntled author, while it may lead to primary source material, is not proof that a real investigation ever occurred. Therefore, the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur does not apply to this pitiable attachment.

Journalists, as yourself, are held to a higher standard in reporting and presenting evidence. We do hope that your independent research activity leads you to a trail of primary source material including, but not limited to, documented evidence of a “police investigation” with a corresponding incident number. In the event that an “investigation” is proven to have occurred, information that retracts and/or exonerates the publisher needs to be included. For example, if there was no prosecution, or if the matter was closed due to a deficiency of evidence towards proving the complaint, reporting ethics require a full disclosure of the disposition of the “investigation.”

Open Letter to Eric Grimm: Christian authors ‘targeted’ by PublishAmerica, says CBA

Mr. Grimm,

The quote attributed to ACFW is not accurate. PublishAmerica in this offering to their authors never claimed that they had a “contract” with your organization. Also, this fabrication occurred after being contacted by CBA. In the interest of all concerned parties, we respectfully request that you take all measures necessary to force and compel Cynthia Ruchti to issue an immediate retraction of this erroneous information. In addition, you indicate that the information that came from  “a very concerned call from an author,” which  is quite obviously the notorious Victoria Strauss of Writer Beware. We have very strong concerns regarding the reporting of Victoria Strauss who’s own needlework on the fabric of truthfulness still remains in question.

Please refer to the following link regarding Victoria Strauss’ truthfulness:


In protest of the erroneous remarks of Cynthia Ruchti, unless a retraction issues henceforth from Cynthia Ruchti, we do anticipate placing her on our “Boycotted Authors List.”

(UPDATED) David L. Kuzminski (Preditors and Editors) adds to the PublishAmerica Fabrications

Victoria Strauss, in a Writer Beware blog posting, (PublishAmerica and CBA: Rowling Redux) voiced her opposition to a recent promotion by her archenemy . . . PublishAmerica. At first blush, it appears that Publish America was/is attempting to package their authors books (for a fee) in a coordinated attempt for consideration by the CBA’s (Christian Booksellers Association) “Christian Store Week.”

We do not see anything that suggests that there is some sort of relationship between the CBA and PublishAmerica. We also do not see anything that suggests that PublishAmerica implied that they had a relationship with the CBA. In fact, there doesn’t appear to be anything illegitimate by PublishAmerica to promote their authors (regardless of whether they charge a fee to do so). Also, they readily admit that there is no relationship with the CBA and they do not promise any specific results. It appears to be solely a promotion.

What’s the problem with this? The CBA issued a “warning” on their web site stating as follows:

“CBA has been informed that Christian authors are being contacted by an organization called PublishAmerica that’s soliciting for authors to submit their books to a sales/marketing catalog that they claim will be going to CBA. Please be aware that CBA has no knowledge of PublishAmerica; that PublishAmerica is not connected to Christian Store Week; and that CBA has no agreement of any kind with PublishAmerica, nor is CBA affiliated in any way, shape, or form with that organization.”

Victoria Strauss readily admitted that the solicitation by PublishAmerica was forwarded to the  CBA.  However, the “warning” issued by the CBA is not a Cease and Desist (C&D) nor is there any indication that one was ever sent to PublishAmerica. (Note to Victoria Strauss: These would be great writings to share with the reading public vs. just stating that x and y occurred. For example, see how we previous refuted a statement of your’s here. Proofs will add to the validity of statements. “Show . . .  don’t tell.”)

We do not see anything wrong with an alternative publisher soliciting its authors in this promotional effort regarding “Christian Store Week.” Are we missing something here? Victoria Strauss’ article makes it appear that there is some sort of wrong-doing here. This kind of promotional activity is performed by many organizations; what is the issue here? Is the CBA really “not amused” as indicated byVictoria Strauss? Or, are they just saying that they have no relationship with PublishAmerica? Didn’t PublishAmerica “warn” their authors as well in their disclaimer? Also, they didn’t promise any specific results:

“DISCLAIMER: PublishAmerica has no affiliation with the CBA and/or individual Christian bookstores beyond that of a regular publisher/bookseller relationship, without preferential access or other special treatment. No specific result from PublishAmerica’s best efforts to represent and promote its authors and their books is suggested or guaranteed.”

Now comes P.N. Elrod who somehow <<we’re shaking our heads>> translates the “warning” into a “Cease & Desist” letter that was issued to PublishAmerica:

“It’s only criminal if they continue to give the offer after getting a C&D from the party whose name is being used. Most are unaware of the use of their name until someone lets them know what’s going on.”

P.N. Elrod (Facebook Page, September 22, 2011)

Clearly, there was never a C&D issued. In addition, it appears that PublishAmerica wasn’t “using” the CBA’s name and was/is only offering to submit the  promotional material of their authors for consideration for “Christian Stores Week.” P.N. Elrod continues to walk down a path of twisted storytelling and fabrications. We predict that karma is going to sneak up on P.N. Elrod and these ongoing activities real soon.

The Write Agenda supports watchdog activity provided that it is true. In this instance, P.N. Elrod is following the trail left by fellow “weiner dog” Victoria Strauss; who’s own needlework on the fabric of truthfulness still remains in question (click here).

Update 9/30/11: Preditor & Editor blogger, David L. Kuzminski, (you know the guy that was sued before and is begging for “donations” to his defense fund [click here]) somehow <<shaking our heads>> read into the  PA offering that PA stated that they “have a contract.” They do not and they readily stated as much. This is another example of how the “weiner dogs” fabricate stories for their own purpose:

9/21/11: The Christian Booksellers Association has sent out a warning that Publish America is ‘contacting Christian authors and telling them that they have a contract with CBA that will go public next week. According to a CBA contact, Publish America demands $49 to get on a list and in a catalogue that Publish America is giving to CBA and CBA will submit this list of authors/catalogue to all CBA members and because of this alleged contract the CBA member stores will buy from the authors listed.’ The ‘promotion’ is supposedly in conjunction with the upcoming Christian Store Week. At this rate, can God be far behind in issuing a warning about PA?” [Emphasis added.]

 

(Click on picture to enlarge.)

The actual quote (i.e. “warning”) from the CBA states as follows:

“CBA has been informed that Christian authors are being contacted by an organization called PublishAmerica that’s soliciting for authors to submit their books to a sales/marketing catalog that they claim will be going to CBA. Please be aware that CBA has no knowledge of PublishAmerica; that PublishAmerica is not connected to Christian Store Week; and that CBA has no agreement of any kind with PublishAmerica, nor is CBA affiliated in any way, shape, or form with that organization.”

Now, exactly where does it say that The Christian Booksellers Association has sent out a warning that Publish America is “contacting Christian authors and telling them that they have a contract” with CBA? It doesn’t . . .  there’s your “News Flash.” Also, if David L. Kuzminski is posting a quote that he has attributed as coming from The Christian Booksellers Association but it actually has not come from The Christian Booksellers Association . . .  who is he quoting? You can’t make this stuff up unless you’re a “weiner dog.”

Readers, try this as further evidence of David L Kuzminski’s erroneous attribution skills: Google the entire quote that David L Kuzminski posted in his “News Flash” that purportedly came from the The Christian Booksellers Association (see above). What will you discover? You will not find any results that take you to The Christian Booksellers Association. However, you will have Google results that will take you to the sites in the picture below (see photo below); none of which are connected to The Christian Booksellers Association. Primary source material? No, not hardly. In fact, one source in this Google result is currently being sued by PublishAmerica. Therefore, if David L Kuzminski is not quoting The Christian Booksellers Association correctly (which he is not), ask yourself: A) did he himself make this quote up? Or, B) is he quoting one of the sources in this Google search which also cannot be attributed to The Christian Booksellers Association? This is exactly how the want-to-be “watch-dogs” turn into “weiner dogs.” Trivial you may ask? Hardly. Is it any wonder at all why David L Kuzminski was sued and lost? When will this weiner dog ever learn?
